No I don't think it should be changed because we will be getting in to a lot of grey areas with team arguments on who's fault it really was and steward favouritism

I think he is right, lets imagine a world where Red Bull gets Torpedoed by Bottas for the next 3 races. Now they literally can't compete anymore because they have run out of money through no fault of there own.

Mercedes would have final say on increasing any cost cap this year. Ted Kravitz from SkySports mentioned it, and I agree with him that Toto wouldn't agree to any leeway to help Red Bull

I believe the one causing the crash, should have some responsibility in it, otherwise, under the budget cap and engine restrictions, it’s becoming easy to seriously compromise an opponent. We can see it already. On another note, I’m not agreeing with Mr. Brown, as V. Bottas had no incident in front of him, he just didn’t brake or had too much front brakes under these conditions… It’s usually called brain fade in racing.

Just remove cost cap and loosen technical regulations, let F1 go back to being at the forefront of what is humanly possible, and bury the abomonation that is the 2022 regulations car. F1 is not F2, and FIA should thus strive to have the lightest regulations needed for safe racing. You want to watch close racing? Go to F2 or F3 or some other series, F1 should be about letting innovative resourceful teams be what they can be. It worked before and would work today. Remember that we had more fun and entertaining racing before strict regulations that came in the late 90s and killed Williams.

Teams with smaller budgets have always been hurt by the costs of crashes and collisions. It's only now that the big teams are constrained that they're complaining about it.

No sponsor will be willing to put money up if some of their money is used to repair a competitors car. How are you going to convince a sponsor his money will not be used for a competitors car repair!? What driver sponsor would want their money used to repair a competitors car? Crashes are and always have been a part of motorsports. If you can't afford to crash don't race.

One solution would be to have set a number of crashes outside the budget cap, because lets be honest these things happen and are part of the sport. After exeeding the set number of crashes the teams should pay for everyone's repairs with money out of their budget cap

Budget Cap needs to stay. Otherwise the big Teams will have a huge advantage in terms of supply for F1 Cars. Without it smaller Teams would be gone. What should be implemented should be Budget Penaltys. For example : Causing a collision will subtract 3% from budget. Causing a Collision which results in a "DNF" and severe damages of the other Party involved will subtract 6% from budget. Reckless driving which results in damages to the other Party involved will subtract 8% from budget. Reckless driving which results in a "DNF" and severe damages of the other Party involved will subtract 10% from budget. ... and so on. Making Teams pay the damage done directly from budget will end up inflating the costs to repair just so the other Teams can get an advantage for the season.

Racist F1! Sir Lewis Hamilton beat Alonso in the same car in Sir HAMILTON's rookie year and almost won the championship in his 1st year. Until McLaren decided to refuel Sir HAMILTON but left him on tires that were worn through to the carcass and was showing where the black tire rubber was worn through showing white patches. China 2007. Sir HAMILTON would have won the championship if McLaren did didn't f--k Sir HAMILTON. McLaren has not won a race sense Sir HAMILTON left!!! Even when Alonso was there!!!The only driver with such awesome accomplishment s. The dutch helped Hit--r build his first Airplane s!!!!

What incident was in front of Bottas?? What in heaven is Ross Brawn talking about? There was nothing in front of Bottas happening at all. He just had complete "brainfade". Sorry, but Bottas drove like a clown. Go and have another look Ross. Valtteri & Lance ruined the day for a lot of people and caused massive $$ damage. Worse than a newcomers screw up. At least Lance tried to get out of it, but Bottas did nothing! Just slammed in a straight line into Lando, and then went left collecting Checo. Why? Bottas has a pile of eggs all over him.

Such a good call by Mattia. Much like normal road insurance really. But would be opening a can of worms for FIA to enforce. Would need it's own panel to keep it under control. FIA, Massi and stewards this year already have their hands full making some of the most questionable penalties in recent years.

One take away in this race for maybe Bottas, when it dose not matter so much that you win realize you can operate as the most effective wing man so the team car in front can. It is a tuff position to grasp as a team player when you have been racing for numero-uno your whole career. Alonso did it very well on a track that mitigated any car superiority Lewis\Merc may have had.....great stuff! & That is racing!
