Verstappen's Hamilton dig after Mercedes' first F1 2021 implosion

The 2021 Formula 1 title fight is developing a slightly soap opera-ish sub-plot but there are other much more significant new narratives cropping up as well.
Max Verstappen said his Monaco Grand Prix win showed “actions always speak louder than words” in reference to pre-race remarks from title rival Lewis Hamilton, as their early-season rivalry switched from wheel-to-wheel battles on-track to a minor war of words off it.
Verstappen’s dig came after a crucial result for him and his Red Bull team. In this video, we explore the "lesson" Verstappen feels should be learned from Monaco, why Mercedes will be more concerned by its own implosion - and where the Mercedes/Red Bull war is set to be fought next.

I have been watching F1 since the Senna, Mansell, Prost and Nelson P days and based on this Red bull shouldn't get too excited as they are not far ahead with respects to the leadership points table. 1 point in constutors and 4 points in drivers. That's nothing to boast about. We have to remember their are 18 races left which means anything can happen. The fact that most red bull supporters are already crowning max a WC is completely absurd. 🙄

Mercedes must shut up, their cars are also not entirly according regulations. Why else did they have such a dominance in the field. There are better drivers then Hamilton (Max). Mercedes is having troubles to keep up with Red Bull, that is why they act childish

it's funny how the team who was allowed to run a full year with DAS after the FIA told them it was deemed illegal now absolutely must have the flexi wings removed from their competitor's cars immediately!!!!! after the results so far this year are we to believe that the DAS gave them no advantage?? Now that's hypocrisy!

Is it possible: maybe it's so subtle that Mercedes' themselves don't even notice, but is it possible that the Merc pit crew puts so much focus, effort into (and recognizes the importance of their task) of taking care of the 7x world champ so thoroughly that they have the tiniest subconscious lapses in focus when it comes to Valtteri? The bad luck in the pits has been Valtteri 100% of the time--probably 6+ incidents since Lewis had the problem in Germany 2019. (Italy 2020 was Lewis' own fault) I know a cross threaded nut is 99.99% bad luck but maybe with Lewis the crew is that .01% more focused and the wheel gun goes back on just that 1/100th of a degree straighter and doesn't cross thread.

I think if the rules say the wing is ok they should allow the wing to be raced. If you look at footage of the front wing of Mercedes that one also had a lot of flex going in the Spain /Portugal GP. Search for it and you will find some images where the Mercedes front wing is also bending.. If the rules say its allowed and you change the rules during the season it shows me again how much the FIA is listening to Mercedes... The DAS was allowed for one season well if the RB wing is flexible... Allow it for this season. Its childish how they are playing this game... Last season nobody could heat up the tires better then the Mercs due to the system.. So stop crying Mercedes and get your racing heads on and get racing. It is closer this season then other seasons but please do not start crying about that.. You wanted a challenge.. Well there you go you got it now.

Dont forget Hamilton was verry lucky with the disfortune of Bottas in italy and in Monaco . the first one going of track in the gravel getting stuck just as bottas and russel caused a red flag, he was out of the race 0 points . in monaco he was lucky leclerc couldnt race, and that bottas race was ruined by mercedes pit crew. He would have been 9th. in monaco and well trailing in points.

concerning the wheel nut, it doesn't make sense! just watch the video from mercedes with the guy dremeling the nut and taking it off by hand. as a mechanics myself, it's impossible! a cross threaded nut is screwed sideways with force, you need at least the same amount of force to undo it. don't tell me that the guy has the same force than a pneumatic gun, i will laugh at you. this represents quite a big amount of pounds of torque. normally, they're designed to be impossible to cross thread. it cannot be a metal issue because they would've had this issue sooner. it's not an engineering issue either because they would've had issues earlier too. for me, it's the mechanics who put the wheel on before. he saw that he cross-threaded the nut but told nothing to the team and decided to modify the torque on the gun in order to screw it completely and hold the wheel in place without play. which fragilized the teeth. the extra torque given basically cracked the teeth. if you come with you gun to undo it in reverse (metal doesn't like to be bent back and forth), boom! everything explodes with a nice shower of sparks. which is basically what happened. but the way the Merc's guy pull it off easy after dremeling it leaves me in awe. on a cross-threaded nut it's not what you see.

It would be interesting to do away with some of the wing rules, replacing them with maximum limits of downward force on the suspension at straightaway speeds. I don't imagine there are currently devices to collect those metrics built into suspensions, but I wouldn't imagine it would be overly difficult to do.

Absolutely no one I know thinks that Mercedes is done. Mercedes still has the best overall package, they just are making a lot of mistakes. Mercedes just needs to get used to the fact that there is a competitive team now. They have some adjusting to do and Hamilton needs to step up his game. He is making too many mistakes and still thinks he can easily win driving at 90%. . I'm sure the season will be exciting to watch untill the last race as there will be tracks favoruing the MERC and tracks favouring the RB.

When will people learn, that poking Lewis after he & Mercedes have their yearly unexpected-expected disaster, has so far in the Turbo V6 hybrid era been an incredulously daft idea? Everytime he goes into driving god-mode and finds that next gear. It's great fun to watch no matter who he's fighting but it is literally the F1 version of the MJ "and I took that personally" meme.

dustinr16 25 dager siden
Mercedes was allowed to run their “DAS” system for all of 2020 before it was banned. If the Red Bull rear wing complies with the testing procedures, I feel like it’s unfair to change the test mid-season. Bring in the new testing procedures next season in the same way you allowed Mercedes to run the DAS system.

While in the end I think Mercedes and Hamilton will win both championships as I think there are more tracks that suits their car better, but with regards to one lap pace it's pretty even, Max's only chance is if he can place his car on pole position for every race and if Checo can regularly qualify in the top 4 then there is something redbull can do with strategy perhaps run checo with a softer tyre from the start and undercut Hamilton before he undercuts Max kind of situation. But with checo battling for 5th, 6th and 7th place with McLaren and Ferrari, Lewis will undercut Max every time he keeps with in the 3 or 4 second undercut window.

I'm definitely not a Max fan, but I do give him credit for improving his craft, being able to drive, overtake and even defend without ramming into anyone. However, his comments are kinda pointless. It's Monaco, Max,. Nobody's overtaking anyone. Sure, Lewis fucked up the Quali, but if Leclerc was racing, you'd have started and finished 2nd. Because it's Monaco. As long as you can hold your concentration, you can't lose a place there... so good for you, you lead the chart now, keep fighting and don't get too cocky over winning a race where if by som chance a Williams showed up ahead of you, you wouldn't be able to pass them.

I'm sorry, but I'm having a hard time accepting Lewis' (and also the Races') take on Mercs in Monaco. The Mercs had a difficult weekend, but at the end of the day Bottas did put a Merc up in 3rd in the quali, and would've finished comfortably 2nd if not for the wheel nut issue. Poor calls with the strategy as well, sure but if I were Lewis I'd first look in the mirror for the root cause of his Monaco struggles.
