    Don't really understand how there isn't some sort of penalty or how he wasn't black flagged after the first 2 or 3 times he did it.
    There's only 20cars on track... it can't be that hard to monitor that.
    They do it no problem in practice and in Qual?
    They stroke Hamilton off, I was rooting for max but what’s right is right.

    So they added the Miami GP for 2022. That should be interesting to watch.

    These F1 announcers are terrible.

    And now it’s red flagged to clear debris.

    And so are the safety crews. In NASCAR, Indy car and NHRA the safety crews a running before the cars involved in a crash have even stopped rolling. In F1, the the supposedly premier auto racing series, the drivers get out of their cars and wonder around the track for a few minutes before anyone shows up. We do a better job at our track days.

    Max did a great job at the start. That got him the race. Wasn’t Mercedes’ day but Lewis got back his 2nd place.

    Decently entertaining race today.
    As for the George Russell V Bottas incident... I think Russell is in the wrong.
    He is blaming bottas moving a fraction back to the right for him going wide into the grass.

    Agreed with above, crazy how long it takes for safety crews to arrive on scene at these wrecks. Imagine if the crash Romain had happened today... he would have died.
    However, at what point do you send safety guys out there, seconds after the crash, i believe it was alonso, self spun right by the accident.
    I think they just need to slow wayyyy down and make getting to the accident scene a priority.

    I do enjoy listening to the announcers. They often have intelligent things to say and rarely repeat the same information over and over again like the NASCAR boys do.

    Remember the track day at TMP when the car rolled and the chick jumped out of the following car wearing flip flops. That was what the ricer kids call "epic"...
