It is.

You have spent enough time on the track to know who is a danger just as I have. There are people that I simply don't drive near. Period, end of story.

In Formula One, Max has developed into one of these because he believes his own press and those around him are doing him a disservice by not holding him accountable.

By doing this they are depriving the sport of a great driver.

Right now his is a Gilles Villeneuve in performance (but not character). Great driver, amazing car control but not putting it all together to win championships though I truly believe Gilles would have done it in 1982 and beyond had he not been killed.

I am not.

It's because of the new approach stewards have to aggressive hard racing. Previously drivers would have received penalties or been black flagged. The exact same racing Verstappen brought to F1. And when the other drivers complained, he said it is the way racing is supposed to be.

Now he is on the receiving end more often than not. Simply due to him being overly robust early on in his career, he has made himself a target now for others.

Payback is a .........

Agreed some real bias and hate.
Some need to learn how to appreciate good racing from all sides. Without being blinded.
But I guess that is what happens when you choose to support a team/driver unconditionally, which I do not believe in.

So VER's weekend was,:
1) "what the duck is he doing?" About Vettel when he was trying to get by just like VER himself was trying to do.
2) ignoring yellow flags and endangering BOT and bullishly boasting about it.
3) running HAM wide and colliding with him.
4) overtaking BOT in the stadium which puts 2 cars 2 meters wide on a tight hairpin.
5) Getting a puncture then driving across the grass collecting Perez's wing with him.
6) pushing MAG then leaving the track to overtake him.

Did I miss anything? You can be talented but it looks like you can be shit and talented at the same time. All of the above is a result of arrogance and self-entitlement. The morons at RB are feeding him with this bullshit that drove RIC out of RB and if they want to win championships again they better discipline him or look somewhere else.

As a Vettel fan I'm just happy you guys stopped shitting on him 😂

It was a great lap which makes this all the more frustrating. His talent is going to waste because of bad decisions, believing his own press, and getting bad advice. It's such a waste.

A good lap ? It was a crazy pole lap from MAX full of risks and over the limits. It was actually Russian roulette !
He knew . And everyone knows the Ferrari Jet-Mode on the straights is unreal .This means other drivers are losing time on the straights . That's why MAX took crazy risks (as you can see) coming out from a turn and flyby at 300+ km/h with only one Inch from the wall . Just to win some time from what he lost on the straight !
Things can go terrible wrong ! Let us hope from not ...

Yeah my friend . Let us hope he can do the same on the Circuit of the Americas => https://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1664693

From what we saw in Mexico , they are very close ! The times that a Merc drove away in T1 and the race was over (again) ... is past .
Good for the thrill !

What got me was that later Ferrari was telling Seb 'you are faster than him' yet the jet mode just wasn't quite there with Seb's car and Toto was offering Lewis MORE power to play even tho Lewis was saying he was losing 7/10ths or something a lap! with minutely damaged side carbon.I'm thinking that Max instead of Seb would have been faster than the Ferrari and would have caught up to the Merc...Honda SUPER power.
I am purchasing expensive Autosport magazine on Thursday to see if they have any more insight on this

FI racing has reached an all-time low when Drive of the Day is awarded based upon....

"So VER's weekend was:
1) "what the duck is he doing?" About Vettel when he was trying to get by just like VER himself was trying to do.
2) ignoring yellow flags and endangering BOT and bullishly boasting about it.
3) running HAM wide and colliding with him.
4) overtaking BOT in the stadium which puts 2 cars 2 meters wide on a tight hairpin.

6) pushing MAG then leaving the track to overtake him.

"So VER's weekend was:
1) "what the duck is he doing?" About Vettel when he was trying to get by just like VER himself was trying to do.
2) ignoring yellow flags and endangering BOT and bullishly boasting about it.

I believe you're lacking some etiquette there yourself soldier. I was referring to quali pole and not the race.Looks like you got out of the wrong side of bed pal If you don't behave you'll spend the night in the cooler.

True that...fastest car gets pole is hardly News at 10.
If Max was half the driver he thinks he is, he would be doing way better than the results he gets.
He needs to stop listening to Jos, dump the Schumacher and Senna playbooks, drive the car without hitting anyone else and stop whining when things don't go his way.

Yeah the cars are faster. There are far better qualifiers that VER who got his first pole during his fifth year at F1. But again, a good qualifier isn't always a good racer!
