Last Sunday’s exciting, incident-packed and very watchable Austrian Grand Prix was won by Lewis Hamilton, with Max Verstappen second and Kimi Raikkonen third.
Race leader at the time, Nico Rosberg, crashed into Hamilton on the 71st and final lap, allowing the British driver to cruise home. Rosberg was later ‘blamed’ for the crash, handed a 10-second penalty for the next race and a two-point penalty. “I am not to blame” said the German…
After the race, former F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen said: “Great win for Lewis… that was him at his best. He never gives up… and it was Nico who certainly caused the crash.”
Hamilton is now just 11 points behind his Mercedes team-mate Rosberg in the driver’s championship. And after a lot ‘radio’ talk, heated debate, lies and counter-lies, a lot of pit-lane arguing (especially by team mechanics and crews during the race) Mercedes chief Toto Wolff, said after the dust had settled: “We’re looking like a complete load of idiots right now.”
Yes, and you know it!
This weekend 200,000 race fans are expected to attend the British Grand Prix from Silverstone.
