Every year during the summer I visit the Belgian "American soldier cemetery"
I'm always lost in words ...
This year I was not , regarding the damn virus .
Certainly a regular visit does honour and pays tribute to the US troops who fell especially to victims of the Malmedy massacre.

Per usual, I'm guessing you guys are inflating just how hard the car was to drive with a misadjusted wing to pump up your hero. I'm guessing Albon's car wasn't perfect (or anyones for that matter) considering the conditions and all the minor run ins most drivers had that day.

I'm also guessing nearly every one of the drivers that day could've finished with the same issue, not just Max. That is what really impressed me form that race about all of the drivers. Nearly every one finished and nobody had a major incident/crash. They are as a group truly some of the best drivers in the world.

So let me get this straight, your hero Max, Mr. Racecraft, Mr. Reinmaker, canít drive in the wet with a little bit of wing misadjustment.....finishes P6

But the garbage driver Bottas who has no business driving in F1, is HAMs lap dog, drives with a chunk of a Ferrari stuck to his car from lap 2 in the previous race and finished P2.

Please throw us some more excuses for Max.

I'm not guessing but convinced that VER would have challenged for the win had the pit crew got his wing angle right, with that crucial setting skewiff by a LONG WAY then in F1 you are just a cruiser.

Well he certainly had the fastest car so he should have been easily able to win.
If Verstappen had more skill and hadn't lost so much time in spins, slides and wheelspin he would have at the very least made second.

Verstappens faster lap times after his second pit stop don't appear to support any problems with his front wing...so its probably just a made up story to stop Verstappen from running off and crying to his dad

Mate ? Did you watched the race ?
After his second pit stop the track was already dryer !

HAM lost the most time with his walk in the park ..
YOUR GOAT lost there +/- 20 SEC !!!

Nearly dinner time my friend, soon be rump steak with all the trimmings washed down with our fave wine Apothic red
We buy our meat only from Costco, the taste and quality is just streets ahead of the others.

- You may be interested that George Russell was saying that there was far more grip on the concrete ground outside the Turkish GP venue than on the slippery race track itself!

Hint: actually go look at the lap times.

Verstappens last two laps before his second pit stop are both 1:45
After his pit stop his next 2 laps are 1:42 and 1:41.5

No one else is posting times as fast on the same two laps.

Verstappen also posted the third fastest lap of the race near the end of the GP.

So did Red Bull mess up his front wing...maybe or maybe they were looking to hide a pretty miserable race for the young pretender.

Verstappen should maybe switch to snowboarding...they like someone who is good at spins.

actually Max went off at the same corner and jump over the bump instead of going around the bollard as far as i remember.. normally its against the rules but he didnt get a penalty.. you probably seen it mate..

and more importantly whats wrong with going off the track?

What ?
HAM went off the track and that was +/- 100 meters off the track and lost 20 sec. !
You guys seem to be blind for HAM's mistakes ...Probably for you guys It's just driver skills sliding over the grass !
Should look on Google if there's a Mercedes lawn mower for him...Of course painted in black as well ..

If one deserved a penalty for a walk in the park . It was HAM !
As always the marshalls slept for the Mercs mistakes ...

As usual it's your HAM that gets off with the stewards' (very) dark glasses.
