    I really don't want to drag this out, but no one was going into the back of him. Seb is talking bollocks.



    Edit: can't get the bloody image to work.

    I haven't seen this quote by Vettel and couldn't find it, but everything else I've seen him say has been about Lewis leaving him no room rather than any worry about a car behind.

    If he did say braking harder would have caused a big accident I assume he means that it would have resulted in him locking up and going hard into Lewis. The Mercedes came around the outside then pulled across him, and he slowed down and turned in as hard as he could, but the tyres will only give up so much grip, particularly given that he was in Kimi's slipstream so would have lacked downforce.

    In a thousand years time they will still be debating this incident. Many documentaries and books will cover it. Many men will go to their graves frustrated that it still gets called a "racing incident".

    Just for the record, I never said it wasn't a racing incident.

    Looks like tomorrow could be the day Kimi announces hanging up his helmet, would like to have seen another year but got to go sometime, hope Leclerc beats Vettel next year Ricciardo style 😂 No Alonso & Räikkönen on the grid next year, Hamilton officially becomes the elder statesmen, remember his debut like yesterday 😳

    Disgusting in the moto2 today. Possibly the worst thing I have seen.

    Wow that's pretty shocking. Was that retaliation for something or just out of the blue?

    He has form. He was fired from vr46 in moto3 for turning off another guys bike on the grid I think.

    Earlier in the race they clashed, then he did this stupidity. I would love to know the speed they were doing at that point.

    Fuck banning him for a season. Keep him away from bike racing forever.

    The F1 Facebook page are showing last year's Singapore race highlights again. The more you see that crash, the worse it looks for Vettel. Not to take an unnecessary dig, but if you're going to try and push someone across the track, you need to make sure you're able to react if they don't/can't move. Otherwise it just looks as if you're casually driving into them.

    I've noticed that since Liberty media took over F1 management the F1 Youtube channel has actually become really good. Session highlights usually appear within an hours or so of the session finishing and you get a whole load of other interesting short videos. I think they've realised how much F1 content appears online very quickly and have gone for the "if you can't beat em join em" approach

    And he's gone. Fired from his current ride and lost his contact next year.

    What a waste just to get back at someone who aggressively overtook you earlier in the race. (The other guy wasn't perfect, he got a penalty for the overtake, but doesn't justify such a dangerous attack).

    Loving the career symmetry.

    2 more years of Kimi is no bad thing. Seems to include some sort of ownership stake in Sauber too which is interesting.

    I completely forgot Kimi left F1 for a few years. Glad to hear he's sticking around, though.

    So Channel 4 are going to be showing highlights of next years F1 season, and showing the British grand prix live. Good news.

    F1 have released concepts of the 2021 cars, I think they look pretty good actually. Definitely a bit of flair to them and the halo actually looks well integrated.

    If they can actually make them look like that, that'd be sweet.
