Since Lewis began his epic battles with Max, the one thing became clear, if push came to shove, more often than not Lewis would back out of a straight fight for a corner and would give it up.
Now since the start of last season it seems to have been noticed that this may be some kind of 'weakness' by the other drivers. Last year we had Tsunoda fighting hard and keeping Hamilton back for a fair few laps, even going so far as to tell the tv media he was happy to interfere with the championship for his sister team. Again we saw it last season with Alonso in a similar position and also do or die by Perez, divebombing into corners.
This season Norris has done the same with him at the British GP along with Sergio doing it again being also joined by LeClerc.
None of these overtakes or defences of corners seemed to happen to him before 2021. So, could it be that others have realised that if they attack or defend hard enough Lewis is going to back out of the situation. Could it be that the young guns have found a weakness in his arsenal and are willing to push as hard as Max when it comes to driving against Lewis?
In no way am I critisising the competion for how they drive against him, good on them if they have detected a weakness, go for it! What are your thoughts?
