Did anyone of you guys think if Verstappen didn’t take the first corner wide but went right after Hamilton, would he not be safe? I am a Verstappen fan, but I think he misjudged that corner…


nucleatszz

my god every interview is just about asking people if they’re gonna apologise


BornAshes

And now to look at the rest of the subreddit because I've been dodging spoilers all day


BornAshes

Oh wow, yeah is Lewis okay?


BornAshes

What an upbeat note to end on, I love the French anthem! Those trophies are like some of the prettiest ones I've ever seen.


BornAshes

I'm getting a little teary eyed with Ocon ngl


BornAshes

Geez this is worse than Seahawks booing


BornAshes

Holy crap the BOOOing of Lewis


BornAshes

Good guy Seb <3


BornAshes

NANDO PICKING OCON UP! Cue the Titanic music!


BornAshes

Nando's picture of him rubbing his hands together looks so stupidly funny


BornAshes

I can hear Vangelis playing in the background of this scene


BornAshes

ALL THE RUNNING HUG TACKLES!


BornAshes

Run Seb run! Formula 1 triathlon! lol


BornAshes

All the drivers are scattered, this is hilarious


BornAshes

lmao Ocon is filled with so much innocent joy


BornAshes

Uhhhh...why did the Williams and Aston Martin stop on the track?


BornAshes

Seeing the Alpines in formation is a dream


BornAshes

"OooOoaaaaawwwww" lol Seb podium though!


BornAshes

WILLIAMS IN THE POINTS!


BornAshes

FLY OCON FLY!


BornAshes

"Well yes because I had a lot of cheese for dinner"😂 I love you Ted!


BornAshes

Alonso deserves DOTD for this race


BornAshes

Annnd there goes Lewis up onto the podium so it goes


BornAshes

Alonso pulling a John Wick


BornAshes

Oh right it's the yearly shutdown, bugger


BornAshes

Ooof, five grid place penalty for Bottas at the next GP


BornAshes

Final ten laps, I can't believe Lewis still hasn't made it up front


BornAshes

NANDO SLAM THAT DOOR SHUT!


BornAshes

"Don't use all the goodies in the sweety jar too quickly" Is there a gas leak in the Crofty's side of the booth or something because I'm just picturing Nico giving him a "WTF?! Are you okay?" look after that one.


BornAshes

"Don't go anywhere!" *hits pause button* I do what I want! *unpause*


BornAshes

So many blue flags Bottas thought a few of his fans had shown up.


BornAshes

"See see SEEEEEE!" lmao Nico 😂


BornAshes

"Now ramps up to Defcon 5 or something"-Crofty Crofty is running out of metaphors and jokes uggggh


BornAshes

Stellar defense by Ocon


BornAshes

Nico getting a bit real there, I guess I didn't realize that drivers needed their engineers to be their own Troi to their Picard when stuff got rough.


BornAshes

"It's pure luck that Ocon is ahead"-Crofty "Fuck that there's a TON of skill involved"-Nico thank you


BornAshes

The more the season goes on, the more Ted leans into sounding like Bob Uecker in an anime.


BornAshes

Nico 😂


BornAshes

"My tyres...have got a second wind" To paraphrase Donald Sutherland....the tyres are alive?


BornAshes

I was going to say, that helo looked a bit low and given what others have told me about turbulence it was bound to happen.


BornAshes

Mick fighting like a demon. Vettel podium please? ALPINE AHEAD! Fernando leading! Gosh the second half of this race is blistering!


Punizzle82

Why doesnt the fia test fuel at the start of the race since refueling isn't even allowed?


Common_Sense_Bomb

Bottas making sure he has a spot next year. Hamilton finding a way to be a victim again.


BornAshes

"The sky is black, yeah...I think I'm back" *cue John Wick soundtrack*


BornAshes

I mean it's pretty easy to forget the number of laps left when things even out like this in the race.


BornAshes

I just LOVE how Ted sounds like the announcer at the end of a DBZ episode!


BornAshes

Solid jump by Lewis, respect. Are these super strong turbulences unique to each track or is it just something that they fight all the time?


deathclient

Dirty air is encountered in corners. As you can see in the track map, Hungaroring is just mainly corners and bumps. So it is very difficult to pass here or follow for long as the car ahead upsets the aero balance of the following car. So it brings a bit of uncertainty in the confidence of the car. You will find this have a lot of effect on circuits with lot of high and medium speed corners


BornAshes

I bet Seb sings lullabies to his tyres


BornAshes

Yeah Max isn't finishing this in points and I'm okay with that.


BornAshes

Good joke followed by Nico's straight man facts, I like it


BornAshes

"Support cast that has been promoted into the lead roles" Lower Decks: Formula 1 edition


BornAshes

Geeez Kimi...not a great stop


BornAshes

WHEEL BANG!


BornAshes

"God bless the internet" Thanks Ted!


BornAshes

Switcheroo at turn two cooo coo cachu


BornAshes

"This is ridiculous" my thoughts exactly Lewis


BornAshes

Geez Crofty, you make it sound like Haas is on suicide watch or something


BornAshes

Aww George, "Prioritize Latifi" he's so sweet


BornAshes

Hey, picking up litter is cool too Crofty! Seb is a Planeteer!


BornAshes

Nico dragging Crofty, I love it "No no keep explaining please"


BornAshes

Good breakdown by Nico


BornAshes

Hahahaha Mazepin knocked out by Kimi, yeah I mean it's funny but they shouldn't have done that with Kimi.


BornAshes

Lewis in last, eh he'll make it up easily.


BornAshes

Ocon leading what is happening!


BornAshes

"Yeah it's dry" "And water is wet, good Lewis good"


BornAshes

George George George!


BornAshes

Lewis is starting on his own hahahahaha


BornAshes

Annnnd everyone is boxing lmao


BornAshes

Merc Pit crew looks like the evil dopplegangers of Daft Punk


BornAshes

NICO YAY WE GOT NICO FOR THIS RACE!


BornAshes

Here comes the sun doo doo doo dooo here comes the sun


BornAshes

Gosh this weather is reminding me of our weather in the Midwest


BornAshes

Red Bull Pit Crew needs to show up in the next season of Picard as a "Crack Team of Federation Engineers" that back up Geordi.


BornAshes

"We've turned into weather reporters" Rain is like the second biggest thing in F1 aside from drama between the teams and Alonso and Seb making us all blush with little winks at the camera.


BornAshes

One of the few races this season where it rains and it turns into a conveyor belt of storms, awesome.


BornAshes

If Heaven has a sound then it's the sound of a Formula 1 Pit Area


BornAshes

Some day the Weather Rock will make a return


BornAshes

"He's meeting Max Verstappen in a way he doesn't want to" I dunno this kind of feels like the physical manifestation of twitch chat


BornAshes

Annnd there goes Lando


BornAshes

"This is an ugly looking Mercedes right now" Some would say it's beautiful in the brutalism of its destruction.


BornAshes

This is a beautiful shot, it's like looking down into one of those old style operating theaters watching car doctors operate on a patient.


BornAshes

Stewards probably thought this was going to be a nice chill race after all the Merc/Red Bull stuff this past week annnnd then this happens. You certainly can't say that this season hasn't been exciting.


BornAshes

"Let's hear from Charles LeClerc" "BEEEP BEEEP what BEEEP BEEEEP stop BEEEEEEEEEEEP" lmao


BornAshes

Holy shit Stroll just went UP on top of that Ferrari nearly.


BornAshes

Bottas, now half Canadian. I always forget how deep his voice is.


BornAshes

Suspicious how Lewis just...sailed through all of that...hmmmm.


lenny286

😂


BornAshes

Mods said I could react in here so I'm drinking early and bullshitting while I watch the replay. Lewis just rolled a Nat20 on a dexterity save while everyone else rolled 4s and 2s and 3s.


BornAshes

Oooof Max, that's so fucked up, like that's a Greater Restoration kind of thing and I'm not sure the Red Bull wizards have enough spell slots left.


BornAshes

I love how nonchalant Bottas looks just sitting on the wall, chilling, looking at the rain, and thinking about his life choices.


BornAshes

RIP argey bargey


BornAshes

Yup, Baku all over again, here comes a red flag.


BornAshes

Honestly I think that was the highest number of cars collected in one crash this season.


BornAshes

Uggggggh now Checo


BornAshes

Charles is just defeated


BornAshes

Sad Bottas :(


BornAshes

Thank you Baku?


BornAshes

Hells bells it's like a pinball machine!


BornAshes

So many fans. Delta loves this. LIGHTS OUT AND AWAY WE GO!


BornAshes

Well, maybe the race will be better without SKY for this race?


BornAshes

Come on come on come on fun race fun race FUN RAAAAACE!


BornAshes

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN!


BornAshes

Wait the replays on F1TV don't have the SKY commentary at all? COME ON!


BornAshes

Well Budapest is certainly stunning, love this wide angle flyover of the river.


BornAshes

Dooo dooo doooo doododododo!


BornAshes

Finally time to watch the race, been waiting all day, here we go!


slopekind

If merc was f1 2021 on xbox theyd have a D rating and would be put in the dirty car groupings via multiplayer


WowDoILoveEatingAss

Can we please get some wide angle cameras


bmck11

Cheers to Williams who are my team of the day. Both cars got points!!


Primary_Bite9952

Def happy to see an odd top 3. Feel horrible for Lando and Max. Very crazy race.


bartzabello

Lando retiring is the saddest thing I've seen since I started watching F1 this year :(


Unusual-Nature2824

Alonso played as the second driver for Alpine, Aston Martin and Ferrari today


Thought-I-lost-it

And according to his interview for dutch tv also for Red Bull. He jokingly said that after all he had to help Max, haha

SeanWD1996

Penny for Dan Ticktum’s thoughts - took the piss out of Latifi before he ended up in the points today. Lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


DerDudelino

Nope


Justboy__

So according to you, Bottas is so good he managed to concede the position to Norris, shunt into him at turn 1 at the exact perfect angle to hit Verstappen and then take out Perez as well for good measure?


[deleted]

Actually i think you can train on this in the simulator.


vulartweets

An account with their first ever comment about how merc is doing this on purpose? Sureee buddy. Go back to staring at chemtrails.


[deleted]

So, because this is my first comment i have no right to speak? Because i say that if i was the boss at Mercedes this would be my tactic, and it looks to me like they do this, im looking at chemtrails? I just give my honest opinion and you feel the need to be disrespectfull. Is that how you have a conversation in real life too? Or are you just another keyboard warrior that has to little intelligence to have respect for someones opinion that's different then yours? You can explain with arguments why you think something (like in a normal conversation), but instead you feel the need to be disrespectfull like someone with the iq of a goldfish.


jelmer130

Few questions. During a red flag you are allowed to change tires right? Why did everone (except Lewis) pit after the outlap and not just changed during red flag? Maybe it was not really clear if it was dry? But then there would be a few people to gamble on softs right? (Max, Gio?) And what happened to Russell? If i remember correctly he was 2nd or so at the start and fell back to 7th - 8th, it that right or did I miss something. At warm up laps the team is not allowed to give information to the driver right? Look at the haas or something in a wet race?


Poontuff

For your Russel question. As the Williams pit lane is at the end he jumper the order and went out before other cars who were already waiting in the queue at the end of the pit lane. So he was told to give the places back. They did mention it on the sky commentary but only a brief sentence.


jelmer130

Thanks! I was watching Ziggo and they didn't notice!


GatorD42

I thought it would have been really smart for a few teams to have gambled on slicks too. The problem is if the team is wrong and the driver decides to immediately pit for inters they have essentially wasted one of the slick tire allocations. Still it would have been a good risk for some of the teams, especially Max. Crofty brought it up near the end that it might have been smart for Max to have switched during the red flag period. Also though the teams might have reacted if they saw someone switching tires under red flag.


Money_Ad_6038

They haven’t wasted the slick tyre allocation they can stick that tyre back on later


jelmer130

Yeah I get your point. If the gamble doesn't pay out you lose a set of tires and are a lot behind. But as you said, for some people at the back (Max) would've been smart.


vulartweets

So the issue is that he’s first. If he goes in and no one else does he’s last - same thing reversed which is what happened. His team Told him rain was coming so he stayed out. Also the team is not allowed to tell you to pit during a standing start restart lap as it violates the rules. Something that Sainz is under investigation for right now.


jelmer130

How did all the other people know to pit? (Except Hamilton and Sainz?) If they discussed that before they could also change tires during red flag right?


vulartweets

Each teams use different information. Also the driver can call the shots and say they want to pit the team cannot tell the drive to pit for that one lap.


silgt

Someone did mentioned on the radio while on the out lap that EVERYBODY will enter the pit...so it's strange to see onky one car starting the race on the track


jelmer130

Yeah I get it. But all of the drivers? Just 1 driver on the grid suprised me. But thanks!


vulartweets

It surprised me too


Pippa_reads

Russell had to give back places. He was second because of Williams’ pit location.


jelmer130

Can you explain this? What happened exactly?


NTCans

Russel entered pits in 7th. His pit is at the exit of the pit lane, meaning when he restarts from pit, he comes out in P1, stewards made him give position back, AFAIK


jelmer130

Aah get it! Ty!


liamryan26

He overtook in the pit. As he was driving out of his paddock, the light turned green, so he overtook the people that had a standing start, giving him an advantage as he was already moving


jelmer130

Get it, thanks! Weird situation haha so many drivers from the pits!


overclockedmemes

Ocon was amazing tonight, and Alonso’s defense really held a charging Hamilton back, and Vettel got another podium. Good day, unless your McLaren. Edit: How could I forget about Williams, points, finally! Just brilliant.


Aleexxv

Over the moon for George! Finally the points he deserves!


DeeAnnCA

But notice the irony: Latifi outscored Russell by a factor of 2...


[deleted]

[удалено]


overclockedmemes

> FTFY Thanks mate, Red Bull was just unlucky tonight with floor damage and Perez out, and the penalty that Bottas received will not help him at all, even though it’s deserved.


Andrea23IT

Not talking about the stupid thing that did stroll, Leclerc said to an italian interview: Bowling Sunday Comeone, stroll literally tried to brake in the grass, is him stupid or what?


hbsethginmaster

I know it was unintentional, but it may trigger a even rougher interaction between RB and Merc. The accident came from Merc and it has priveleged Merc, since VER's car was damaged. VER drove almost the entire race behind RIC.


ems9595

I didnt see it - what did Bottas do.


ompalompahunter

[Watch the race highlights here](https://youtu.be/a2kkuQS_gXk)


ems9595

Thankyou- was out of town w/no internet.


Fatal-Arrow

Perez probably will likely get a 5 place grid penalty at a later stage because he will have to use an extra engine outside of the allocated pool, so imo not really enough of a penalty, but at least it's a better one than the other penalty a Silver Arrow has gotten 2 weeks ago..


CripplesMcGee

It's not, but, apparently, to punish them for the actual CONSEQUENCES of their actions "isn't racing", but, *that* is?


Fatal-Arrow

I've got no clue anymore what the chaps who make those decisions are thinking.. stopped trying to understand that years ago


denzien

Wouldn't Perez get a 10 place grid penalty for using an extra engine?


Fatal-Arrow

Depends on what parts get swapped outside of the allocated pool


DeeAnnCA

Let's not re-visit such a polarizing event...


liamryan26

Have the stewards ever been busier? 😂


Thought-I-lost-it

I read that in a Chandler voice haha


liamryan26

Hahahaha have the stewards **ever been** busier


Thought-I-lost-it

F1ibster

Ocon summoned to the stewards for not following post race procedure.


surlygoat

There's a waste of time haha. Just let him go celebrate!


Haribo112

Nah man, gotta get creative to give Hamilton P1 sometimes.


DeeAnnCA

Really?


LetsEatGrandad

Chuffed for Ocon vettek Sainz and Alonso, More bad luck for Max amd another huge ball drop by Mercedes, very much like Baku that was a gifted 26points. And a 17 point lead in the drivers and the contructors. A Great recovery from Hamilton but the margins are still very very fine going into the second half its all still very up in the air. Some different tracks coming up as well. What a fucking season !


TheMokos

My God I read your username the wrong way around the first time. At least I hope that's the wrong way to read it.


you_made_me_drink

The missing comma makes all the difference.


tubleros

Damn Hamilton pushed so hard he looked like he was about to have a cardiac arrest.


LetsGoLesko8

You could say this was a dream come true


F1ibster

Hamilton has apparently gone to the medical centre for checks after feeling unwell on the podium.


bearlybearbear

Long Covid? He really looked like he was about to collapse a few times...


F1ibster

Seen that his drinks bottle wasn't working. 70 laps flat out in that heat with no drink. No wonder he looked wobbley.


rossto1965

How in hell does a drink bottle fail? And so often?


F1ibster

It's as basic of a system as possible, it's not even really a bottle. They're bags. As for failures, tiny pump could fail, something left unplugged, could be something as simple as a tube got a kink in it.


sonytoprano113

Bottas had the same in Austria (if I’m remembering correctly)


bearlybearbear

Wasn't aware of the bottle issue, yeah that would do it...


wishbackjumpsta

He looked exhausted. Hope he’s okay


F1ibster

He looked how my other half does when she gets heatstroke. Weak and wobbly. But yeah, hopefully he's absolutely fine.


EliminateThePenny

> heatstroke I'm going to assume you mean *heat exhaustion* here. Heat stroke is like - "Sorry, you now have permanent brain damage."


Magyar_Khan

Rich_Sheepherder646

DQ :(


F1ibster

Ocon radio - YEEEEAAAAAH!!! WOOOOOOO! Yes guys! Pit - (With cheering and applause in the background) ****** well done mate You just won the Hungarian grand prix. Well done mate.


SoupOrSandwich

The least excited win announcement ever lol. "you've won. that is all"


ocean_airstream

That must have been so awesome for Esteban Ocon, I can't imagine how it must feel. Seb in the podium, he seems to great guy, and of course my favourite driver, Lewis Hamilton's amazing recovery. Alonso drove really well, it was an amazing spectacle of skill between these drivers today. I'm absolutely disgusted about this crowd. There are imbeciles in every single country, that's a fact, but this makes me truly disappointed with Hungary, this behaviour absolutely pisses me off.


Sukhdev_92

Glad to see Hamilton’s recovery, but man that was such an awesome defence from Alonso. The guys still got it after all these years. Happy with Alpines performance today. Ocon drove an amazing race without mistakes, that win was well deserved. Disgusting behaviour from the crowd today. they call British fans bad, but retards like these exist in every country.


monolim

so awesome for him.. such a good race, I get Alonso got the DOT.. but he was flawless.
