I don't follow F1 that much, but why was Lewis Hamilton effectively penalised and had to forfeit his 11 second advantage? Almost a certainty to win with only a few laps to complete. A travesty.

Safety cars happen. It's just bad luck. What isn't bad luck though is the race director breaking the rules, rules he publically stated he had to follow in a similar situation last season, to decide the result of the world championship.

Had the rules been followed and Hamilton lost, that's just the way it goes - regardless of the lead he had just before the safety car.

Agreed. Listening to the on board some of the other drives clearly thought it was utter shit too. Lance Stroll, Vettel, Sainz and Danny Ric all saying it was fucked up.

That's the thing for me. I'm going to be biased in favour of Hamilton to almost the degree I am with the Villa. Every independent voice is saying the decision-making by Masi was off.

Itís any stick to beat Hamilton with. Forgetting the tax haven that is Monte Carlo is where mr Verstappen lives. Itís a shit decision by massi in more than one occasion. Sure the Netflix fans love it though. I dropped out of the sport in the mid noughties returning in 2014. Itís all a bit of a shit show nowadays. I really hope the close racing promised in 22 materialises to bust the wdc wide open
