I hear that, but why scrutinize one incident on Lap 1 but not the other?

What comes to mind very quickly is that if you scrutinize Mag-Perez too hard, you might have to ban Mag :unsure:
That was my read on it as well.

Though if you watch the replay Perez could have been a little more to the left and not squeezed Magnussen, then again with 10 points on his license Magnussen had no business staying in that pocket and not lifting.

bc the start is always jumbled up and dumb shit happens at times.

Some photos from the weekend. Experienced every type of weather within a single day - cold in the morning, sunny & warm, cycles of downpours, even hail. Enjoyable weekend nonetheless

It was a great race. Nice to see a real fight for P1.

Shit timing on that safety car for Norris. He had his 2nd win nearly in the bag but then Sargeant had to do what he does (twice).

Shit weekend for Ferrari (lol) but I really felt bad for Albon getting picked up by Sainz like that. Williams REALLY needed those points and REALLY needed to not have both cars fucked by the end of the race.

Max was thoroughly impressive. Nearly every single driver on that track made a mistake that cost them something, except for Max. He's a machine.

George and Lewis fighting at the end was fun. George fully committed to that overtake, either he gets in front or both Mercedes DNF.

It just got divulged that Checo was told to drive the car back to the pits in a knowingly unsafe condition to avoid a safety car, which could have cost them the win lol

And then there was a safety car anyway, and Max was fine.

But if I could predict things like that, I'd have waaaaaaaaayyyy more money than I currently have.

i would have driven it back regardless, all four corners were still on the car and it was still running.
