Mercedes Admit Lewis Hamilton Was Saved By The Red Flag

  • Gepubliceerd op 15 dagen geleden

    Formula World

    The crash involving Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen was a pretty big one and many feel that Lewis was fortunate to have been able to continue in the race without any major damage. Their trackside engineering director, Andrew Shovlin, has now revealed how close Lewis was to a DNF as quoted by F1’s official website

    I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:

    Did The Red Flag Save Lewis Hamilton?

    Shovlin started off by explaining how they had predicted to catch up with Charles Leclerc with two laps to go

    “From our planners’ view in the race, who were forecasting it live, we were looking at catching [Charles Leclerc] up two laps to go”

    He also confirmed that the tyre drop-off they expected during the final laps for Lewis didn’t happen, helping him to close Leclerc down at a consistent rate

    “When we thought it was on I’d say was five laps into that [push]. You normally see the drop on the tyres, but you could just see Lewis holding this eight-tenths advantage to Charles every lap and Lewis just wasn’t dropping off and the balance was happy”

    He then confirmed that Lewis would have suffered a DNF had it not been for the red flag

    “We’d failed the rim where we’d had the contact on the front-left, so that would have been a DNF had it not been red-flagged”

    He signed off by revealing that the rest of the damage was relatively minor

    “The rest of the damage was actually remarkably little. It was a tyre temperature sensor that had got knocked loose, so it was waggling around, but amazingly, it’s the least important part on the front wing - and it was the only one that broke”


    Fast Feed

    Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has pointed out that they “were quicker than anyone else on the mediums, which [they] did not expect. It was impressive” [F1]

    His team principal Mattia Binotto feels that “after the race in France the whole group reacted well”

    They know they “are not yet at the point to be fighting for the top places on a regular basis, as there are two cars that are faster than [theirs]. But it’s important that [they] are working in the right direction”

    When Honda F1’s technical director Toyoharu Tanabe “first saw the images of [Max Verstappen’s] car being lifted, [he] thought there was a lot of damage” [Autosport]

    “But in reality it seems that the damage is less than what [they] first saw. However, the actual damage cannot be known from its appearance when it is installed in the car”

    “So [they] would like to send it back to HRD in Sakura and check it before making a decision”, Tanabe confirmed

    Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has stated that they “are all for hard but fair racing and not for irresponsible actions, as [they] classify this action of Hamilton” [RTL]

    He added that “it was of a low level but anyway, that's just the style of the house”

    F1’s managing director Ross Brawn pointed out that “we saw the title protagonists go wheel-to-wheel once again, but this time it ended in a collision, which ended Max’s race” [F1]

    “It was a massive relief to see him climb out of the car and walk away before he went to hospital for precautionary checks”

    He further feels that “it is something both drivers will reflect on. [He hopes they] can avoid those incidents in the future because we were denied a fantastic battle”

    Former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has suggested that “in the old days [they] would have said it was one of those things, a racing incident. It was clear that everyone was doing his best to win the championship” [Sportsmail]

    “But if the stewards needed to get involved then they should have given Lewis more than a 10-second penalty. It should have been 30 seconds”

    “Lewis was not in front at the point they collided. It wasn’t his corner. He was almost a car’s length behind. That’s why he hit him at the back not the front. Ten seconds was not right. The punishment did not fit the crime”, Bernie added

    For McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo “it was great to see so many fans back in the stands” [F1]

    “As a driver, it really means a lot to hear them cheering you on. There’s been plenty of McLaren caps in the grandstands too, so that’s awesome to see”

    His team principal Andreas Seidl added that “there’s a lot to learn from this weekend - [they’ll] go away and analyse it thoroughly to see how [they] can improve the next time [they] try sprint quali”


    Will the possible damage to Max Verstappen’s engine come back to haunt him and Red Bull later in the season?

44 has opened the door for 33 to the exact same thing, reward versus punishment? 44 moved to within eight points of 33. Having been 32 behind at the start of the weekend, I fully expect even more fireworks moving forward. You would've thought that with the massive amount of experience that 44 has. That 44 knew exactly what would happen when he put his front wheel he did. It was a desperate move. A do or die action. Red Bull failing to score at all in the British Grand Prix, Mercedes now sit just four points behind.

It is stupid and foolish for Red Bull to criticize Lewis when Lewis does what Max has been doing all the time. Horner used to boast that Max overtook Lewis 3 times at the start, but ignoring that Max only did that safely because Lewis backed off each time. Max has been known to be the ruthless driver, now that he got what he deserves, they are all crying "foul". Each time other drivers ruined Lewi's race, like in 2010 by four drivers, nobody called for a harsh penalty. I think Horner and Marko are passionate racists. All the time Lewis said that the championship was a marathon, not a sprint, or that Max thought he had a point to prove, nobody understood that Lewis was alluding to the fact that Max only did what he did because others backed off. Even this time, it was Max's responsibility to make sure that Lewi's left front did not get entangled between his front and rear wheels. It cannot be that he drives just looking forward and others get out of his way. Look at the track where they collided. Max left a lot of space on the outside trying to squeeze Lewis out of the track. If I am driving, I would make sure someone's wheels do not get between my open wheels. The reason is when the front wheel is between the rear wheel and the front wheel, the front wheel of Lewis rotates upwards whilst the rear wheel of Max rotates downwards. So when they touch the resultant rotation is double and because Lewis's front wheel cannot go into the ground (track) it is only Max's rear wheel that has the freedom of movement and that points upwards, thus toppling his car off the track. So, Lewis and Max just touched, but PHYSICS threw Max off the track. It happens this way all the time. So, Max caused the crash by jeering into Lewi's car, expecting Lewis to jeer off as Lewis did in Baku when Perez cheated as if to crash into Lewis. This caused Lewis to touch the brake-balance switch that caused him to lose the brake and land in DNF. So, the Redbull of Perez caused Lewis to have DNF in Baku. Nobody followed this incident in Baku. So, RedBull denied Lewis 25 points after Max got a puncture. When RedBull does such a thing, Horner and Marko keep quiet, but happily, thinking that Perez has done a good job. Even Lewi's losing the brake could have ended in a collision in Baku. Red Bulls are talented in hypocrisy.

see all real many feeds on youtube. If Hammy past Max like he did on lap 50 on Lecrerc, with less speed,and lift, near the right of the apex that is how can make copse corner. But with the same speed like Max 300+ km he could not make that Cops corner.  Hammy was driving to the dirth not on the race line  when he and Max for Copse driving near eage other allmost wheel to wheel the dust cloud could you see  by Hammy s car when he could not make Copse corner, and hit and drving aganst to Max car. Hammy ran like Max 300km+  did not   driving on the righltsite near apex of copse corner, but driving middle of the road into Cops corner than Hammy ran, hit , crasht because off to much understeer, because he was driving not the ideal line, and driving to hard and hit  in Max right rear wheel with his front left wheel en leftfront front wing.And Max had a 51G horror crash because off that stupid action from the 7time champ. Thats not how Hammy sould driving, very dangeres. Almost kill Max 51g the had to give Hammy the black flag, like Senna and Prost did, not the 10sec and the win, very Unfair be a real Champ and make a statemend, sory all F1 lovers i make a misstake and hit ran Max out off the race because off that i drive not further this race, and step out off the race this is not how i want to win or score points. I drive to the hospital and go to Max because he is there because off my action on the track. Than are you a champ.  If Max breaks or lift 2 seconds in Cops than Hammy ran off the track and he had a hard crash to the wall. And Max easy win the race. Because Hammy ran and hit Max in to Copse with that giga oversteer moment, driving to fast, not on the insite of the track, his car slows automatic slows down, and Hammy could driving to a win. Thats not the way you want to win. Hammy the narsist,  Hammy having a party on stage, and thaking all the people for thear spirit, and waving a flag like a small boy of 7 years old. And nowing because of your best driving skills not, realy not, hitting people of the track is his skills, in cart time he did that, F3 and F2 also he performed it to his best ever skills. Look all the F1 races he race and its his thing. 2019 and 2020 he did that by Albon twice, a smal tik with hiss frontwing or wheel in a corner to a rear wheel and your are turning off track or in the wall.  Is a 7e time champ and the best. No he will never the best, with the best car off the last 7 years ever round 0,8 sec faster per round, than every other F1 car,every driver won easy peasy 7 times, no for shore 4 times. When Hammy make a misstake and driving Max off the track, its wasn't my fault he said, Loko Toto the same, come one, be honest, and say into the camera yes i saw the reyplays and it shows that its my fault, and that he crasht 51g into the wall. I driving to Max to the hospital and give my honest opinion thats my fauld, that Max had a very dangerous hard crash, and thats not the way i want to win the F1 championship. And ask the fia because i dont want any points from this race. Thats how Hammy score real pionts to all  F1 lovers, and all people in the hole world.  Because off all his actions what he has don at the F1 GB and after are very and very negative to all f1 fans and all people, the see him now as a narsist. Thats newer go alway, with that bihavior. A great driver but not a great loser, and for sure not a great person. Not a Sir, a Sir Narsist.

Red flag due to the damage to the conveyor belt barrier and the tyres. FFS grow up. Yes Lewis was lucky. So was Max. No one died, no one seriously injured. The spectators by the impact point were probably at greater risk from flying debris/gravel. If you cannot see that they stopped the race for the safety of the competitors.................

My opinion: Lewis was going significantly faster at that corner , yes he was on the inside, but he was never going to make the apex, The only way a collision would have been avoided only if lewis backed out completely, he didn't back out completely he didn't send it completely If he didn't back out at all verstappen would definitely be pushed wide but may not be sent in to the barriers , if he would backed out he might have gotten verstappen in the subsequent laps I'm not saying lewis did intentionality, but whatever might the scenario be it cost verstappen a possible second place finish We saw lewis in Bahrain going wide for 29 times and saving tires We saw lewis with Nico rosberg We saw the way he celebrated Of course he has won 8 th home grand prix He won when his rival was taken out, he won with the fastest car on the grid with a paltry penalty and the way he celebrated is very sad to see I would have been elated if he won the battle with max legitly Or atleast not have celebrated in such a way when ur rival is taken out Such a sore looser

CLEARLY A RACING INCIDENT, BETWEEN TWO WORLD TITLE CONTENDERS. WE HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE, WITH SENNA, PROST, SCHUMACHER, DAMON HILL AND HAMILTON ,ROSBERG AND SO ON. JUST BECOMING A MORE OF A NANNY F1 RACING . HAMILTON HAD HALF OF HIS CAR NEXT TO MAX , BUT MAX TOOK THE RISK IN CLOSING THE DOOR LATE ON HAMILTON AND CAME OUT WORSE. HAMILTON TOOK THE INSIDE LINE AS A CALCULATED RISK AND SO DID MAX , BUT THATS RACING. I REMEMBER WHAT SENNA ONCE SAID (QUOTE, IF YOU STOP TAKING RISKS IN RACING, THEN YOU NO LONGER CAN CALL YOURSELF A RACING DRIVER). SAID BUY A TRUE AND MOST ICONIC DRIVER EVER LIVED, AYRTON SENNA A TRUE LEGEND.

Repairs under a red flag should only be allowed if it was damage for someone not involved with what caused the red flag like if you hit some debris and got a puncture. The way a red flag just kind of resets the race for everyone is not good.

Actually the rule is not that bad, considering if there is an accident involving more cars and the race is immediately red flagged, the unlucky drivers who weren't at fault get a second chance to compete in the race after the restart .... but i am with you, if you are causing a collision and get saved by the red flag, that's not quite fair anymore

Once again its Max who turns into Hamilton, not hamilton who drives into Max. Max's insistence on going for the 'racing line' is why he collided with Hamilton. Max had the rest of the outside of the track to navigate the corner, instead you drove as if Hamilton wasn't there. By comparison look at the amount of room Hamilton gave Max after taking the lead down Wellington. Presumable if this was Max on the outside with the lead going into that corner, he would have gone for the 'racing line' there too. As for Hamilton not making the apex. Look at the corners before that incident and you can see, with the exception of the corner into Wellington, Hamilton doesnt drive for the apex. Hamilton drives in a way which aids his acceleration out of the corner and preserves his tyres. IMO it was a racing incident, but given the dramatic outcome, the stewards also wanted to be seen doing something, Hence the addition of a penalty. Max with that 33 points advantage should have driven with the bigger picture in mind. Instead he continued to take chances. God forbids he becomes world champion with his particular brand of agressive driving.

Isn't it weird that if it had been a yellow flag or safety car, he wouldn't have been in the points? Isn't that backwards? More consequences for a smaller offence (yellow / safety car) and less consequences for a bigger offence (red flag). Why would you give a free repair to the guy who caused the red flag? I mean, the stewards clearly thought he was at fault, since they gave him a penalty. There were talks in Monaco Q3 when Charles caused a red flag about deleting lap times if you cause a red flag. But in a race, apparently you get rewarded with a free car repair if you cause a red flag... okay then.

I think that Mercedes didn't have a near DNF if the red flag didn't come up and they are exaggerating. They were getting ready to pit Lewis for hards so a pit stop was a given. Also the safety car did one lap if not two ... I believe they restarted on the 3rd lap so 1 lap with safety car was done safely by Mercedes. I think they risked track position (going to last) more than a DNF if it weren't for the red flag. Yes the stress fracture would migrate under high downforce and lateral g-forces. Yet I suspect they would last one lap or long enough for him to pit again under safety car (yellow flag conditions mind you). This tidbit from Mercedes sounds juicy to media but it is a totally fabricated "what-if" not based on the racing events of the day. I think they are making it intentionally suspenseful to assuage those angry that Mercedes didn't risk anything from that collision with Red Bull but had all to gain. BTW they certainly did have a risk of DNF on that contact but it was from Lewis spinning out and crashing himself; but since that didn't happen this tire damage is a placeholder for that.

We know that. It was obvious, I love the meme going around saying. How to win, crash into your championship rival, receive a leniant 10 second penalty, get your car fixed under red flag, then ask your teammate let you by, Did anyone see on Sunday pictures from Mercedes garage of they like putting duct tape on the broken wing of the Mercedes, no other team I think would get away with that, My God does this not sum up everything that is wrong with formula 1, There are people with one world championship, such as Damon hill , or Jenson Button, or Nico Rosberg, who have earned it, who are loved, Look at love that is there for Sebastian Vettel, four times world champion.

Bernie should retire negative comments like that 30 seconds next, think about all the races I’ve watched max has his fill causing problems on the race track, so Bernie think before you say another word, racing is racing look what happens when it rains the drivers race in the worst conditions F1. Stop blaming the wrong people it’s racing max saw what was happening and so did Hamilton they both wanted to be in front,🤔

I thought his comments were quite quaint..but either he's blind or he never got to know where a curve began and where it ends, during his stewardship of F1's franchise.

They should make a rule where if you repair your car in Red flag conditions then you should start from the pitlane. Otherwise it gives huge advantages such as this.

​@Baggings Truetoyou Ok. Well, in this case, with Hamilton... the only thing that was actually repaired on the car was a sensor on his front wing... which they glued and taped back on. Something which would have been mostly inconsequential for the remaining race if they did not fix it (and fixing it in a pit stop would have been as easy as switching the entire front wing). The thing that saved Hamilton from a DNF, thanks to the red flag being thrown up, was that he could change tires during the red flag. Because if there had not been a red flad, chances are Hamiltons front left tire might have failed devastatingly so, since the rim apparently cracked (edit: to clarify... cracked from him and Verstappen coming together which resulted in the crash and red flag). But... I understand your reasoning about wanting to change the policy of being allowed to make actual repairs to a car under a red flag. Weather or not I agree... I don't know. I can go either way with it. It's just that in this case it would not have made much, if any, difference on Hamiltons remaining race. Since a tire change was the thing that saved him from a potential DNF.

@Calistarius79 no tire changes are a normal required occurrence in races while repairing accidents are not and penalising repairs means that there will be a fairer distribution of consequences for coming together

So... changing tires is considered "repairing the car"?

What a cheat, a poor sportsman if there was ever one. No champion and certainly not no goat. A pollution to F1, racing with his personnal politics. Unfortunately, I have to tolerate him for a few more years. Real race fans have had enough of his antics and fake genuineness and gentleman behavior. A horror to the prestige of F1 once was. American increased viewership is not worth ruining the purity of F1.

Should never had been red flagged. Should have continued under the Safety Car until safe to restart.

Michael Schumacher did the same thing to both Hill and Villeneuve. He also got away with it. This was worse though, given the speed carried into Copse, around 180mph plus. Could have been fatal for Verstappen. Disgraceful really. Hamilton's luck is extraordinary helped, of course, by the stewards who have clearly been told to support Hamilton at all times.
