Why? What he says is spot on, shows perfect maturity.

No one on here or similar forums is at all qualified to assess or criticise him and he clearly is maturing and improving. What’s wrong with him saying that?
+1 biggrin

Nevertheless I'm sure he'll keep selling a few race day tickets

But that's patently untrue. If it was giving advice on lines etc, then yes. But if a driver keeps crashing or causing dangerous moves related to his style then people can say it's an issue in terms of doing even better if he removed that part of his driving. That he got punished several times by the stewards also shows people qualified agree with the "unqualified" people on here some of the time.

Technology is amazing when you can race with real F1 drivers online.

What is Verstappen like. biggrin

It's only a game but you do wonder what would happen in a Championship battle.

Looks like it will be open season in terms of crashing into each other for next Formula E race wink - Max has to be an observer to the stewards as part of his punishment.

What a rubbish punishment. Would have been better to send him to Great Ormond Street or a country with road safety issues to be a role model... oh wait a minute.

I think any public rather than financial punishment he has for the offence is much more appropriate as he needs to feel ashamed of his actions and it might help him understand what the stewards have to do - it's been said before that he's an important role model in sport and he must understand he can't act like a petulant teenager anymore IMO. He can't be treated differently to any other driver on the grid regardless of his talent/his team.

I wonder what the punishment would have been for Piquet's punches ?

6 race ban, docked points and 20 days community service, probably.

it's a great punisment. Ghost of Christmas future no? Formula e, the formula 1 drivers "we'll have you flying cargo planes of rubber dog $hit out of Hong Kong" threat.

I disagree but that did make me laugh.
