    I do agree that Hamilton's move was somewhat intimidating, but I also don't think there was anything really wrong with it. Maybe a midfield driver like Hulkenberg or Grosjean, someone not used to fighting at the front, wouldn't have been so aggressive in defense and that move might have worked, but a driver of Hamilton's experience and talent, the move was never going to work.

    As I said earlier, what I really found frustrating about it is he was always going to get past Hamilton, he didn't need to rush it. If he'd just waited half a lap longer and passed Hamilton at the hairpin, he would have won the race.
    Simple as that really, it was just a hot headed move when it wasn't even necessary. Max relies on others getting out of his way, but he ought to know that Vettel is every bit as ruthless and hot headed as he is. Great race though, and Max will surely mature into the champion he is capable of being one day.

    The thing is that Max immediately acknowledged his own stupidity and that's the first step towards improvement. Besides, it seems Helmut Marko also had a talk with him. So I'm sure it must've hit home for him this time.

    As they say... patience is a virtue and experience comes with age. So here's to a hopefully better Max in two weeks.


    That said... Dani-Ric really deserved this win, and that immediate pitstop on yellow was just a golden move by Red Bull this race. To which I found it odd that Mercedes and Ferrari didn't pit, which I don't think will happen again very soon. So next time things won't be going so easy for Red Bull I think.

    After I tried the F2004 in AC I forgot about the other F1's in the game. F2004 is more fun to drive than any of the more recent F1 cars imo.

    When will Max finally learn it? Currently he's on it's best way to become the next Maldonado. At first, I really liked Max - but now, after three years, I think he is a potentially great driver who's constantly making an a$$ of himself by causing way too many avoidable accidents by being too overconfident or just plain stupid.

    Well, even the Dutch Verstappen fans as well as Dutch journalists and TV presenters were critical and displeased with these mistakes.

    Than again, it isn't like the best of them never made such mistakes either in their early years. I mean, even Senna went for gaps that sometimes didn't even exist. He was also a driver that was overly eager at times and of which other drivers knew that if you gave away even a tiny bit of room than he'd be in that gap.
    In fact, that was also the reason why also many people disliked Senna.

    His reaction and post-race interviews was very encouraging, not hiding from his mistakes. I was very angry at his driving in the race, but he deserves some credit for taking ownership of it. That being said, he didn't really have a choice, if he had gone on the offensive post-race about his driving, I think the fans would have really started to turn on him.

    For all the talk of Max throwing away the victory in China, I think it's worth noting that Mercedes threw away a potential victory for Hamilton too. I don't understand how they thought track position would be better than newer, softer tyres given they's seen how powerful the undercut was when Bottas cleared Vettel. If they'd have pitted him when Verstappen and Ricciardo pitted, he'd have come out between the two of them (if I remember rightly), and when Max had his dramas, he'd have had track position over Ricciardo. That's two really bad strategy calls in three races for Mercedes, and because of the Max incidents and Ricciardo's brilliant drive, it's sort of been forgotten.

    I think you can make a decent argument that Ricciardo is one of the top three drivers in F1 right now. He's definitely top four along with Hamilton, Alonso and Vettel.
    ...You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thank you David for the opportunity, thank you for the wisdom, thank you for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.'

    I second that. It's basically all I've driven since I got the mod. They have all the 2018 skins, too, except Merc. At least that one was out when I downloaded mine. Great mod.

    Funny thing is, the halo didn't bother me at all in VR, and then after a few hours of driving with it, it felt strange driving without it...LOL
