  • The other issue is that Daniel was promised a tow (off Magnussen) after the previous run, according to Christian Horner. After the maths didn't work out and Magnussen was too far to use, it looks like Daniel opted to make his own tow!

    Between that, and Max understandably believing he was also due a tow (from Ricciardo) and it's easy to see how the whole gnarled mess happened. Clearly Kevin was supposed to telepathically get the memo and sacrifice his own team's qualifying results to help out the beleaguered Bulls...

  • Seems fair enough to expect a Ferrari customer team to go out of their way to aid Red Bull's qualifying.  Seems odd that anything could go wrong with that plan!

    Still, Max had a very good drive today, a mature race from him.

    Most drivers won't even help their own teammates,why
    would they help another team? I was hoping Max's tires
    would let go and Kimi got the win.

    Me three. Still, Max nursed a very ratty looking set of rears for a long time. Gotta give credit for controlling the race.

    Yeah and that was a bump to pass move.  ::)

  • Did you see the post race press conference?

    Max:  Bumping is good for F1
    Seb:  What?  Bumping is good for F1?

     :DD :DD

    I loved watching the facial expressions of the three of them.  Seb reacted to every comment with a little grin, an eye roll or some sort of body language.  The other two looked like they were staring at trees while Seb talked.  Max's eyes are freakishly non stop shifting the entire time.  In interviews as well.

  • Too bad in his bump and pass he didn't lose a wing and
    shred a tire. I didn't hear the bumping is good comment.
    They need to add a polygraph machine when interviewing
    Max.....your comment is deceptive  ;)

  • I'm sure Max believes bumping is good, he drives most races as if he was in British Touring Cars! (Hint: he's not).

  • Apparently, this is Sir Jackie's recent review on Mad Max ...

    "British racing legend Jackie Stewart has praised Red Bull driver Max Verstappen for “rejuvenating” Formula 1."

    Surely, we can only agree with this statement to a point, but not necessarily in a good way all around (race craft and poor conduct at times) ??

    While Jackie is certainly famous for his part in bringing safety to F1, he's always known what side the butter goes on.

    Max is bringing attention to the sport in the same way that Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso did.  They all had huge fan bases 'at home' who paid to come watch F1, buy F1 swag etc. 

    As 'serious' F1 fans we don't want to see a grid of 24 Mad Max's, but one or two does keep things interesting.  It doesn't appear any of the other 'up and coming' talent has the same attitude, so the sport will survive both because of, and despite Max.

  • Very good post Jericoke!!

    Of course, we never want to tame 90% of what Max brings on track, but most neutrals are beginning to have an issue with his attitude here and there.  I know, it's no different to many greats before him, but I do hope he matures, as far as his character is concerned, while erasing a couple of those "push the boat out" incidents on track.

    I generally enjoy watching him race and agree that he does bring a new edge to 'race days' ... I would just like to see him tidy up a couple of rough edges.  We can't refer to him as the "new boy" any more, so all the usual comments on letting him mature and grow up as a person, well, those comments don't carry as much weight in the last 12 months. 

    On the same token, I would like to see a couple of drivers step into the dark side and grow some *cough* ... horns!! ... let's see how they all play in 2019.

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)
