max does it again, swerving and blocking his teammate while ricciardo's drs were open in the narrow streets of baku. There's no way danny can avoid it even if the brakes were fully applied coz' the momentum will still carry on due to his spoed is way faster than max at that time. Danny definitely has a go there on that straightaway, but max is a sore loser that does'nt want to get passed even by his own teammate that never left any room.

Is Max the cause? It was very close to the corner, could Riciardo make it if he could overtake Max?

The most blame must go to the team not giving team orders.

this kid is a sore loser, thatís the dumbest move to make on a teammate . Danny must be fed up with the idiotic games this kid plays.

Maybe Max can transfer to Global Rally Cross (Which is neither Global or Ralley racing)

So the commentator is trying to say that Verstappen going to the outside to defend and then back to the inside leaving no room for Ricciardo is just a regular racing incident?

Basically the moves of Max were by the rules. There is a discussion of the "Verstappen rule" of just one defending move alowed. That was scrapped although there seems to be a rule of 1 defending move in the braking zone. But the the 1st move was on throttle and the 2nd move was his 1st in the braking zone.

The explenation by the Sky reporter is clear, due a lack of downforce because he was close in the rear of Max Riciardo misjudged his brake power.

As everyone says, it was waiting for it when these 2 were racing close to each other

The gull of Grosjean to say "Ericsson hit me in the rear" after he stuffed it into the wall all by himself, really, really rubbed me the wrong way. No one was even close (it would have been LeClerc anyways), and how on earth does he not realize there are a million cameras, capturing every single move? What a juvenile/pathetic remark.

I thought it was his engineer that said that. Grosjean was screaming No.

Does anybody else in the US only get the Friday practice sessions just before qualifying on Sat? I can't find where ESPN televises Friday practice on Friday. I have AT-T U-Verse if that makes a difference.
