I've thought this for ages but that all happened because of those stupid speed-bump kerbs. They act like a ramp. So dangerous.
Yeah, commentators have said for a long time now that the sausage kerbs are dangerous and can launch cars up. Had it not been for them then they probably just make wheel to wheel contact and one is pushed wide or spins. No way does Verstappen's car get that sort of elevation without them.
They definitely need something at that chicane to stop people cutting it and gaining, but those probably aren't really the answer.
Verstappen had been pushing his luck several times this season, so it was always going to happen sooner or later that he'd get some sort of penalty.
I've seen some people criticise him for not checking on Hamilton, but I can see why. At first glance / viewing it seemed pretty innocuous, it wasn't until the replay that we saw how nasty it could have been. Wouldn't be surprised if Verstappen had no idea how high his car went up over Hamilton's head and where the back left tyre came down. I think we all thought that it was just a minor shunt by F1 standards when it happened. Of course emotions and adrenaline would have been running high also.
All in all it's not a bad weekend for Max, I'm sure pre-Monza he fully expected to lose points to Hamilton but he leaves the weekend with a bigger lead than he started with.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?
