Shocking. I've been reading your arguments here with interest and at least now I can understand the hubris. I don't think anyone needs to have a degree to see the quite obvious flaws in your reasoning.
So far all I see is that people try to find a fault by misreading or misrepresentation of what I said into something completely opposite of what I say.
Seriously my main point I made here is that:
- Verstappen broke the rules (I see 100% agreement on that)
- Bottas didn’t have his car under control prior to his accident (Bottas confirmed)
- Bottas accident was a result from him still trying to improve his lap despite this loss of control
- there was only 1 yellow flag on entire track waved (not visible as a double yellow from what I saw on onboards)
- from the moment Max could see the flag he had control and he knew he had control.
- at that moment he steered away from Bottas and the risk of an accident was zero.
- at that time Max judged the situation as safe to continu as there was zero risk of him hitting bottas and he could see a clear track
- if Max didn’t notice the flag because he was relying on the lights instead that would be bad from Max.
- at no point did Max put himself, Bottas or the Marshalls in any danger with his action.
- the only “risks” people can come up with are totally imagined risks that Max could see where not present (debris) or based on that Max would AND lose control of his car AND keep full throttle while understeering (which is stupid, just ask Bottas) or based on a freak occurrence like a blown tire or something else launching Max towards Bottas. (When was the last blown tire without hitting a car/debris again?)
- he still broke the rules and deserved his penalty, he just isn’t the villain people make of him. Every driver on the grid would do the same if they don’t notice the yellow (maybe because they are focused on the crashed car And the track instead of flags)
