Down the years motorsport has had collisions, teammate disputes, controversial races and incidents.
This is not a thread to revisit any of them.
I am interested in how we view contentious things and if it’s different depending on who is involved.
If “your” driver is in a collision, do you see them as less likely to be at fault?
If a situation inadvertently benefits or hampers a particular driver, does that hamper how you regard it?
My personal view is I generally call it as I see it, except where McLaren or a McLaren driver is involved, in which case I’d generally see it as them being the “victim” or not in the wrong.
I remember maybe two decades ago reading a thread on a forum which said in any contentious situation you should view it as “if the parties involved in this were reversed, would you have the same opinion?” and I think, on balance, this is a good mantra.
I am very interested in the psychology of all this but once again, this is not the place to rake over specifics of particular incidents, it’s about the general idea.
