I guess it'll be a victory for Hamilton as he'll probably start from pole, and the Mercedes has always been strong here. A second place for Bothas and a third for max or a McLaren.

Just a pity they didn't implement the 120 refresh rate on all models. Ah who am I kidding, I'll be ordering the pro version anyway, maybe three, my wife and my 8 year old son are ready for an update too. Ok, now I'm going to rob a bank.

A 3 race ban for Verstappen would have been more appropriate
Sure take the fun and risk out of F1 driving, everyone will drive meakly behind each other and only pass on the straights. Ham and Max, both drive on the edge, and both don't give in. Of course if you're a "fan" you'll always choose sides and open yourself to a lot of frustration. Pity, you'll be missing out on a lot of fun, you won't even be able to be happy for McLaren with two of the most sympathetic drivers on the grid.

I don't like Max' win at all cost attitude
Except for this part, I completely agree with your statement, I actually love that "do or die" attitude, F1 racing should be on the edge . This whole "gentlemen" thing is great for cricket, but I can't really complain when drivers fight to the bone. All greats are this way, Senna, Schumacher, Prost.....and yes Hamilton too. Verstappen is one in the making.

So if the news is reporting that, whats the message?
You can't protect people from their own stupidity?

Stop blaming the Olympics for everything, I was at the Olympics and things were very tightly controlled, and so many preventive measures were taken bordering on ridiculous. Back in the real world I encountered long lines in front of popular food stands, crowded swimming pools, full trains, and cinemas full with popcorn munching folks. The Olympics isn't responsible for the sharp increase in cases, apathy is.

Just read that little brat Verstappen unfriended Lewis on Instagram. Ohh, how petty!
Lets call it as it is - Verstappen only got the drive in F1 because of his Daddy.
Bring on the next race!
Lol, you're a funny lad.

Sorry to burst your bubble, the GOAT is just a kid without a fast car and an obedient partner.
Screaming goat, goat, goat won't change that fact.end off.

We know the real reason why you dislike him enough to suspend reason.
You've just admitted that for over a decade he has been better than all of his peers. Your words, not mine
As a great philosopher once wrote "Haters are gonna hate".
The overtake on LeClerc showed exactly what Verstappen did wrong, both drivers took the corner too fast and both were off the ideal racing line due to Hamilton being on the inside. LeClerc drove wide due to his speed but was able to keep racing, Verstappen decided to cut back on the racing line instead and was met with the front left tyre of Hamilton.
FIA didn't seem to agree with you though, other drivers just keep their mouths shut as they all want to drive for a winning team one day,
And now Hamilton is being racially abused on social media, just like the black England soccer players were after the Euro final. In fact it’s so similar, you have to wonder whether there’s some kind of orchestrated racist campaign going on here. Would not surprise me in the slightest
That's a pity, because it distracts from the fact that he was responsible for the crash.

Nope. 99 wins and the status of GOAT means Sir Lewis rarely makes a mistake. This was just a racing incident. Verstappen was all over the road in that half lap, the pressure is getting to him lol!
99 wins without any real competition...but now the pressure is on he's starting to make mistakes...LOL!
As he closed the gap to the wall on Lewis, the leading edge of Max's back right tire hit the back of Lewis's front left. That flipped him out.
Meaning that Hamilton wasn't driving beside him, defensive driving is allowed, forcing an accident like Ham did is. 10 sec is just a laughable punishment.
-4 ( +4 / -8 )
So disappointed in Hamilton... as a 7 time champion, he should have known that trying to overtake in THAT corner would cause a problem. "I was beside him" ...in what world? Watching the replay and the pictures it obvious showed that he touched Verstappen's rear tire with his front tire. People write that Verstappen is an aggressive driver, but he hardly doesn't cause accidents, unlike Hamilton. I reckon most ham fans want all riders to drive like Hamilton's team mate. Too bad, aggressive drivers make for interesting racing. Crashing into someone and blame aggressive driving is just transfering the blame....something Hamilton is in the habit of doing
-6 ( +3 / -9 )
Verstappen is only "dominating" because Red Bull have a huge car advantage.
That's what Lewis had the last five years, now the pressure is on and he is starting to make mistakes. The gloves are off now, I'm looking forward if Hamilton really deserves to be called "the goat" or is he just a privileged sheep?

What a great race, we finally have a real battle! Great race from both.

Finally an exciting F1 year! I feel sorry for Leclerc but without his crash he wouldn't have gotten pole. Still Ferrari is on its way back yeah!

Yes and no regarding cancellation.
The Tokyo government can request and the IOC can refuse.
But the contract it between Tokyo and the IOC not the national government of Japan.
So the national government can go public demand that Tokyo and the IOC cancel the games.
Tokyo may not be legally able to say anything publicly that could "harm" the games, but the national and other prefectures can.
Under that kind of international publicity the IOC would have no choice and Tokyo would be legally safe.
Looked it up and you're right, now the only way the olympics will be cancelled if the IOC decides to cancel it, if Japan cancels it, all cost and losses will be shouldered by the host....
-1 ( +0 / -1 )
Actually the Japanese government has no say in it, this is all up to the IOC. Once you sign the contract of hosting the games, there's no way to get out of it, except for a war. It's all up to the IOC if they see the need to cancel the games. In the mean time the Japanese government has no choice to promote it and make the best out of a bad situation.
Personally I don't get what the big "wooha" is about, if all athletes are vaccinated they won't increase the risk of infection, and when you stroll through Tokyo, it's obvious that most people don't take the precautions that seriously. It'll be nice to watch something else on TV than the food programs we get killed with every day.

Not a good idea to take sides in a conflict like this. The rocket attacks are a case of tit for tat. Years of built up resentment, pain and hate on both sides has to climax someday and no matter which party you talk to, they both make sense in their explanation. This kind of statement is a slap in the face of all those who have suffered in this conflict, and is just a case of supporting a business partner.

Yes there is, give people the right to choose end their lives on their own terms.

Lovely passionate folks here, but even the most die hard lh fan must admit that his succes lies for 80 percent in the cars he's driving. He's a great driver, but you can't call someone a goat with this kind of advantage, now can you? But I guess that counts for any sport where the wealthiest teams lead the way.
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
Numan you're going overboard here, sure Hamilton is a great driver, but he also has the best car car, backed up by an almost equal team mate. Verstappen had no choice to keep on going on those old tires, a pit inn would have meant losing his place to either Hamilton or Bottas. Such is the power of the Mercedes team. And even though Mercedes is underplaying their power, their cars are obviously more powerful when it matters most, not during the free training, but during the race.

They forgot to write that the students have to purchase a 20.000 yen dictionary set application. Also all pads are LTE versions as the school's don't have WiFi. This is all the result of good salesmen and an ignorant board of education. My son hasn't used his keyboard in the two years he's been "using" his iPad.
Japan's education's costs are based on relations between great salesmen and ignorant schools. The bags, uniforms, sneakers, hats, pen cases, etc are all to be purchased at the same stores. Little shops who rake in money doing nothing but sell to parents.
