Lewis es­capes

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

There seems to be a huge amount of par­ti­san fuss about the fact that Lewis Hamilton was not pe­nalised for his first cor­ner faux pas when Max Ver­stap­pen was clob­bered later on.

I have some sym­pa­thy with that view, how­ever… giv­ing Hamilton a fivesec­ond penalty would not have changed the re­sult, and a place swap with Nico Ros­berg at the time wouldn’t have worked as he went off too!

On a slightly dif­fer­ent note, I’m a lit­tle tired of lis­ten­ing to Ed­die Jordan (for whom I have huge re­spect) go­ing on about Hamilton hav­ing taken his eye off the ball fol­low­ing the sum­mer break.

If Lewis’s en­gine hadn’t blown up he’d still be lead­ing the ti­tle fight. Fact. Steve Cob­bold Via email
