Dutchman here and I totally agree with you on this. That was milliseconds away from yet another disaster.
I love Max but I hate the blind Dutch patriotism surrounding him. None of the Dutch media even mentioned his poor judgement diving in to Eau Rouge with a wounded RB (where was the teamradio btw?).
But Max is a clever guy and he knew he fucked up, he was uncharacteristically very subdued during post race interviews.
