I'm pretty sure the point of the sprint is so the sport has 3 separate events and days that mean enough to each grand prix that it makes fans watch.
If you were to have a sprint race that had no effect on the actual race that would take the intrigue away from wanting to watch it for the average fan.
I think awarding points throughout makes it interesting. It being reverse grid and seeing Lewis and Max try to carve out the field going full out is also a reason to tune in.
How would you guys feel about shortening the sprint race by another five laps and forcing everyone to go on ultrasofts?
It may make it interesting enough to the more hardcore fans but that's not who F1 is trying to get.
Only having a sprint race count towards a season long points total is like when any of our favorite CFB teams schedule a game against Troy. Sure, the most ardent of fans of each team will watch and care but no one outside of that really gives a shit.
I don't really like it.
Hot take: If they continue doing the sprint race. They should make the penalty be moving behind the person you wrecked if they’re behind you.
Say he went from 3rd to last because someone else wrecked him seems to not penalize the person enough moving them down 3 spaces.
Lol Tom cruise and Harrison Ford, some British prince jerk. What a race.
Uh Hamilton just took him out
That was big. Hope Max is okay.
Wow. Hamilton hit him
Hamilton just took him out lol
“I’ve got damage” yeah no shit, give him a 10-place penalty at the end of the race.
with his luck, he’ll go to the back and end up finishing 2nd.
They better punish Hamilton for that
This red flag is huge for lewis
Apparently I’m in the minority but it didn’t look to me like Hamilton took an improper line?
either way a bummer, looked like we were in store for a really good race
Probably going to get 5-10 second penalty and points on his license for that
IMO Max veered over. Hamilton had enough position
It’s a tricky one but I also think Lewis was drifting wide from the inside
Then they should punish Max too. Aggressive driving from both.
I think Max has been punished enough considering he gets no points now today.
Lewis thinks he was ahead on the radio. I wonder how you hit his back tire then.
Totally. Give him a 10 second penalty.
This is all Tom Cruise’s fault.
Wow, that was intense racing.
Does look like he drifted over but IDK the rules on lines. Hamilton was def close to even and had the inside line
felt dirty from lewis to me
Lewis pulling a Dale Sr
I have absolutely no clue where Lewis thought he was going on that move, either.
I’m surprised Horner wasn’t more fired up than that
To take max out
Ouch for Mercedes. Max even looked like he tried to avoid.
I’m really cross about this Michael
Jesus at that fucking car
That explanation helped out. Seems like they both were being aggressive and expected the other to back off.
Lewis’ exit angle on the turn never seemed to aim anywhere but the left side of the track. It isn’t intentional really, that’s not how Lewis is, but he was desperate to stick with Max and so never left enough off the throttle.
Good for my boys at mclaren though
And it appeared that max altered his turn as well
I don’t think they’re going to penalize Hamilton and red flag means they can fix his front wing
Otmar and his Mercedes partnered engine on the side of Lewis
“Benefit of the fans” because fans love pit maneuvers and baking in the sun for half an hour with no action.
I’m just torn on how they could even call this a racing incident after the Austria races.
True but then he also turned into and he didn't have to. While Hamilton drifted and had room to move over.
Completely unbiased Im sure
