Silverstone => Rammed in the wall (51G) by Hammy at Copse .
Hungaroring => Rammed off track by BOT's suicide Kamikaze .

That wasn't cheap for MAX regarding losing 75 driver points by the Mercedes dirty tricks !
This while HAM's car was repaired under the Red Flag , actually twice !
HAM is always so damn lucky !

But who is currently leading the WDC again ?
Right ! That's how fast and focused he is in this season ..zero (0) mistakes and super fast also in the wet races as at Imola and the pole at Francorchamps .

If I said "IF" , Mercedes has to remove the cheating air-temp. sensors from their hidden cooling system in the plenum by the FIA .

Then is MAX 'now already the new '2021 WDC !
I’m not disagreeing, I think it’s Max’s year. However I still have doubts about the reliability of the RB car and he has to beat arguably the best ever in Sir Lewis. There’s a long way to go in what is essentially a tied Championship at this point. That is all I’m saying.

I’m just so thrilled we have races that matter now, likely all the way until the end. No blow out this season!

Yes and No .

The RB16-B is vastly improved regarding balance and power and the HONDA PU reliability as well .
But let us not forget , 2 actually 3 HONDA PU's are been destroyed by Mercedes !

Soon ....And the question is where and when MAX has to take his grid penalty !
Too bad ! But thanks to Mercedes anyway ...

I fully understand why you do that, you want to move elsewhere as it's stressful to watch 'just in case' it's why I don't have live and I can't stand that squealing commentator Croft, just no.

'Only' 17 wins, I'm imagining how many wins he would have if not for 'external factors' and 'bending the rules' etc....



Anyway. Monza!

He is anyway quite young for his 17 wins, I think it's okay for now and all he needs now is a capable teammate that can support him, just like Ham has had the luxury of for all these years for his easy wins.
A lot of Hamilton wins can never be looked on as won on merit with superior car and a servant teammate so Max stands high in that respect with his wins.
