Bottas was fighting for p9 in a mercedes when his teammate was literally fighting for the race win...
ya, i also think it was bottas fault, he moved a little to the right, but at 320km/h it looks a lot scarier so russel tried to correct but touched the wet grass and boom, at least they are fine
bottas crashed so hamilton could get back under safety car conditions its so obvious
Bottas left Russel enough room, so it's not his fault.
Personally I think bottas was at fault there. He did jolt and the direction of travel he changed too would have squeezed russel out. Russel reacted very naturally. That said it was a risky af move considering how wet it was.
i think bottas had the normal dry racing line, russell decided to try an overtake through the outside (where bottas left plenty of space), and russell hit the grass and shant it.
Yeah Bottas is slow af in the wet, and will probably not drive Mercedes next season. After yesterday, I hope Russell doesn't either. Disgusting behaviour after the incident and moronic comments after the race. Russell himself has choked every time he's had the opportunity to get points for Williams.
first russell blamed bottas, then he blamed drs, next he is blaming the gardener who seeded that grass
Every analyst said it was Russell's fault but OK.
Its russels fault 100%, what drivers have on agreement is not change the line in breaking zone, but racing they can change line as normal, russel wanted to show how good he is and pass bottas (cuz he wants the bottas car on mercedes obviously) and goes to the wet grass with slicks
People who say this is Bottas's fault are the same people that said Prost moved over when Senna crashed into him in Suzuka 1990.
I think you guys need to play sim racing more to understand what racing line is suppose to mean. He hit wet patch of the track and crashed into Bottas 100% russel's fault.
Also whats with all this russel sympathy? When mazepin spun so much hate for him now Russel made a mistake and tried to square up with bottas after the incident till he gave him the finger is being applauded? Because he only almost won in Bahrain lmao f1 fans are becoming a joke each day.
IG comments say russel mistake + not gentlemen behaviour at all
Look closely on the footage frame by frame, Bottas was on a dry path all the time, and when Russell started overtaking him, he moved slightly to the left to make him more room and Russell didnt use this space, instead he touched a white wet line on the right and spun.
100% Russel's fault.
It was Bottas fault bcs he really shouldnt be in 9th place with Mercedes
It was just a racing incident, Bottas followed the dry line which caught Russell off guard.
Russell just went to the outside too much and its his fault
did they actually decide yet who was at fault the FIA? They showed they were investigating it...
not sure what the thread is about, but my neighbors name is Lucas and he drives a fiat
