    now you just being childish, it was racing accident, if Lewis was on pole and had poor start, he too would of done the same, Dani Ric, Kimi. They all would. So, except it, move on. Get over it.

    Kimi flew in there as a rocket. Max could not react even if he was a superman. When one man is coming to you from the right like a mad man and then suddenly a jet fighter appears to your left and both don't leave you any space what so ever... you can't do nothing.

    Watching the replays verstappen clearly starts to steer into raikkonen way before vettel starts to come over to his side, while raikkonen starts to steer right into verstappen after he gets half way ahead of verstappen. Max does have a record of being an idiot.

    It was luck that he got in this position today. It was not skill. Over the course of the season he has been good and he is leading the championship through skill. He had a massive slice of luck today though and to call it skill is absolutely nuts. Unless you say he skillfully watched all the cars infront of him crash out

    I was reacting on him calling Max an idiot for doing something wrong... He didn't clearly. The man that did something wrong was Seb and I just pointed this out for him.

    Of course he's bloody lucky, we should have won this race, but we can't deny the fact Lewis was 1 second faster on used INT tires...

    He made a great start and almost got Vettel. So more skill than luck.

    1 second faster than who on used int tyres? It wasn't Ferrari and we'll never know how seb or kimi would have done now or how quick Hamilton was had he been stuck behind another car.

    I knew it. I knew it. What the hell. The language rules of this site won't let me express how I really feel.

    Watching the replays again, I would blame Kimi for this one although all 3 was guilty to some point. Why would he steer right into Max?? I dont understand. Kimi had enough space on the right and even if he kept his steering wheel straight that could have been a first place for him going into turn 1.

    well, after watching replay again and pausing it at moment Max starts to move left, Kimi is 3 quarters past Max. To be honest, Max should seen Kimi up on the inside.

    Well Rob, slowing down the replays is easy, drivers get maybe a tenth of a second to react. It all happened very quickly. I still maintain it as a racing incident, Kimi, Max or Seb no one can be blamed
