2020 Austrian GP

Post by overboost »

It appears that an 'automobile race' may happen over the coming weekend.

A definition for those not familiar with the term:

noun
1. the sport of racing automobiles in which drivers compete against each other on a course designed for racing or on closed public roads.

The site of the race is in Austria high in the mountains. A long way to go to put on a race but that is the spot. Actual people will not be allowed to witness the event however due to safety concerns.

So just cars, mountains and the smell of plastic rubber.

Lets go racing!

Hamilton says: End to racism.
Ferrari International Association says: No.

Ridiculous 3 positions penalty in grid didn't help. Ridiculous 5+ seconds penalty. Vettel caused a collision earlier, no penalty.

The penalty to Hamilton has been seen by most as far too lenient. It was purposely done with his front wheel on Albon's rear and a very large impact on albon. Albon's race was ruined.

Minimum a drive through penalty.

And the 3 grid drop? He broke the safety rules. That's what happens, you get penalized.

The real issue here with Hamilton on the safety violation is that he lied to the stewards, said he didn't see a yellow panel, or see the yellow on his dash, and didn't hear the tone in his earpiece. He has done this before in Aus'09. Why are they letting him off in Austria? Should be given a race off to think about it.

Yet another racist here.

It is completely wrong. We have seen such touches and more severe ones from Ferrari before with no punishment at all. Go watch 2017-2018-2019 races. Hamilton didn't do anything wrong there.
Vettel's deliberate dive in was more clear than that, yet got no penalty.
On 1st lap Albon should get a penalty with your mindset. Hamilton protected himself.

Ferrari? Why is Ferrari being brought into Lewis's penalty on Ablon in the Red Bull? They were not involved.

And what are you going on about racism? Are you saying the steward is racist or Albon is racist? You are not making sense.

And yes Hamilton was found to have caused a collision but he received a far too lenient penalty from the stewards, just 5s tacked on. Why is Hamilton favoured by the powers that be in F1?, if the roles were reversed in this case Ablon would have gotten a 10 second drive through penalty.

Hamilton would routinely drive his teammate Rosberg off the track and receive no penalty at all. So the 5 second time penalty is going in the right direction but still far to lenient for Hamilton's bullying style of driving.

As for Hamilton's misrepresenting the facts to the stewards again, this is something that will catch up to him, he should be very careful.

Ferrari is being brought as an example within the same race to clearly show the stewards' dual standard. On one side you find Hamilton's penalty lenient (why would you choose such a fancy word I don't know), on the other hand you are not even criticizing why Vettel got away with no penalties.
Stewards are racist and types like you (or maybe you are just a Ferrari fan, who is against any Mercedes).

If you could watch it objectively you would clearly conclude that there was no action done against Albon and no further action was needed.
