A brilliant Max Verstappen was dominant in both the wet and dry conditions at Imola, his Red Bull RB16B-Honda proving to be both reliable and driveable as the track changed from the wet to the semi-wet and then the dry. Lewis Hamilton salvaged a massive P2 for Mercedes after sliding off into the boonies; and Lando Norris finished a stunning P3 for McLaren-Mercedes. Add a massive, high-speed shunt from which both Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) and George Russell (Williams-Mercedes) escaped unharmed and you have an Emilia Romagna Grand Prix to remember, as Peter Windsor reports.
With thanks to Red Bull, AMG Mercedes, McLaren F1 and Scuderia Ferrari.

  • Interestingly Max during an interview with Coulthard and his father Jos tells he drove a GT3 car for the first time and generally applied 40 bar less brake pressure than what the engineers initially wanted him to apply. However, his braking zones were shorter and faster than everybody else, because he 'did not activate the ABS' and according to himself 'being on the edge of ABS had more car control'...

  • Lewis is a great driver nobody will deny that however racing is racing and than everybody makes mistakes. Last few years lewis car wash so superior that he could stay within a safety margin now he needs to push it he will see cars trying to overtake ( thats racing) and he will need to push and than only human he will make mistakes. But I am sure Lewis will enjoy this much more than the last few years starting first and drive away in the distance!

  • I believe the "close competition" that Lewis claims to want is open to interpretation. If a RBR car gets close and he's still able to pull off the win that's close enough for him. To think he would accept George (after what we witnessed in Sahkir) as a teammate is laughable. George may get his Mercedes seat when lewis moves on. For now, as long as Bottas doesn't put the Mercedes WCC in danger, I think he'll get to stay because that's what lewis wants. So, IMO, Lewis isn't looking for a blood and guts fight every single weekend with his own teammate; not unless the #2 driver at Merc gets slowed down somehow. These days I'd imagine there are 100 different ways to make sure the #44 car is dominant w/o raising anyone's eyebrows.

  • Serious question... seeing that Red Bull driving on Miami beach, I think it would be a great race and spectacle (with passing!) To see F1 race on a dirt oval. Not joking. Nascar did it this year and it was great fun and I'm not a follower of dirt racing. These cars could do it maybe... just dial back the available throttle (the team engineers can find a good pedal for the drivers so they have some power when they want it but not too much where you just light em up too much. I think put a different wing on there that doesnt fall about at slightest touch (maybe just have a nose with no wing). What F1 fan wouldn't watch that 1st F1 dirt race with great anticipation?! My 2 cents.

  • HAM's first error was not pulling out in time when it became apparent he would wind up on the sausage kerbs. Lucky he didn't damage his car more. As for the rest of his race, the _P2_ was a gift of the red flag, absent which he likely would have finished no higher than 7th. VER is looking good for the 2021 _WDC!_

    • P2 wasnt a gift of red flag. The gift was stop and restart which allowed him to be in 9th. His driving 9-2 was all him and all skill. The red flag didnt overtake anyone.

  • Lewis seems to have that bit of luck that champions seem to have. Not only was he lucky to get out of the gravel, but also with getting the lap back after the red flag. Also while Bottas could not overtake without DRS in the wet, Lewis had DRS to overtake when he needed it most. Schumacher also often used to have just that bit of luck that a champion needs and get.

  • Max deserved the win from the perfect start he had and the race he drove. But nah Peter Max was being pulled in by lewis towards end of the 1st stint, the gap went down to 1.9 s at one point. Can't really use the traffic argument b/c they both hit the same traffic. If Lewis had lifted and followed max around the first chicane he could've won the race. Lewis is faster in the rain period. When it's dry his tyre management makes him faster than max at end of a stint. As a case in point Max was in the free air the second stint while lewis was fighting back up to second on the same tire, yet he bagged fastest lap 3 laps before the end of the race. Max had time to respond but couldn't.

  • I blame Bottas what is he doing being being passed by a Williams he should have just moved over if he's that slow. Bottas jerk over just a little like a road rage jerk not really moving over just enough to startle the passing driver and I think it was a kind of deliberate road rage move as he know his Mercedes career is done!

    Matthew SinclairMatthew Sinclair25 dagen geleden
  • Conditions like the weekend are usually decided on the smallest of mistakes and luck. Lewis actually looked like having a better pace than Max at that midpoint of the race on the soft tyre and his fastest lap even after running behind traffic showed that. In theory, his tyes should've been done.... In those conditions, Lewis quite often feels his way into them and just grows as the race progresses. A mixture of the Mercedes team having that poor pitstop and un-characteristically forcing an overtake on a backmarker try to make up that ground he knew he had on a slow Verstappen threw away the win. However...... Reversing out of the gravel was a genius move....... working his way through the pack after showed as well how good Hamilton is compared to the car when seen in relation to Bottas. Max drove a great race, especially the start. He made a mistake similar to Lewis overtaking Russel but just got away with it much like Hamilton got the luck with the red flags.

    • Thats why it is great. Damaged front wing (his own mistake) off the road (his own mistake) gets a red flag (luck) and still finished P2. Meanwhile in that same time checo went from p4 to p12 and Norris went from P2 to P3.

  • Do the cars still have a mechanical reverse? Or do they use electrical power, which would be a great functionality. Selecting a torque limited ´gravel´ mode. As this could help to avoid race stops.

    • Yes ..... most, if not ALL F1 cars now can engage reverse by pressing the neutral button on the steering wheel, and the holding down the 'N' button for several seconds, and reverse should then be engaged. I know these systems occasionally fail because they are hardly ever tested in anger (so to speak) plus they never used to be very robust because they designers would 'almost' see these systems as dead weight, and were made as light as possible.

  • I think Lewis was given 2nd place by letting lapped car complete their lap before safety car headed out. I think the spirit of the rule was stretched way beyond its intension. Letting lapped cars pass safety car while on out lap is OK, but getting a free lap before safety car starts out lap. Am I wrong for thinking this was unfair.

Had there not been code red, HAM already more than a lap behind NOR and LEC would have needed to pit to replace the front, and come back on track a good lap and a half behind podium. Yes is was a good come back, but he would have not had any chance to finish on the podium without code red. NOR and LEC fully deserved to finish 2nd and 3rd.

  • You like most didn’t do your homework, I did, I watched all overtakes from Lewis on Charles, Carlos and Lando in the same situation, and then it’s already dry, those 3 come to the right at the end of the white pitlane line, Bottas at the beginning, Bottas just simply doesn’t expect George to come out of DRS and pass right (and thats typical for Bottas), you see Bottas steering to the left once he notices but then it’s already to late. But people who explain things should at least do some homework. Hamilton crashing and still turning it in to a masterclass is simply hideous, 2 big mistakes, one going off and 2nd brake the wing misjudging his angle, red flag, passes in DRS a couple of cars and again it’s masterclass for peter, even with these mistakes, it’s getting more and more of joke these analysis

  • The rule to unlap yourself during red flags or safety car is originally meant for slow cars who were lapped because of their speed, not for a p1/2/3 car who was lapped because of a fault. The rule should be that only cars who were lapped because of their slow laptimes are allowed to unlap themselves. This did cost Leclerc a podium and Max not on p1 for the championship.

Leclerc just had DRS, and when he didn't he lost 3rd place immediately. I think if Lando had kept the Ferrari close to him.. Lewis would have finished 4th

Great drive by Max, Charles was going for second place (or at least a podium). Sainz was lapping a lot quicker than most, and was up from 11. Pretty good I would say... strangely biased on this one.

All his reviews are from the perceptive of Lewis, like he's the only thing that matters in F1. As you say, Lewis not only got a free pit stop but was also allowed to unlap himself. Leclerc lost his podium. Peter should instead of not even mentioning the unlapping, focus on it and explain it.

    • Rosberg said it: if you want to win to Lewis you just have to break his emotional equilibrium. Once out of Turn 1 Lewis couldn’t reach Max. He did recovered after the red flag and raced a lil better the second half to overcome his error, but even with the front wing fixed he never got enough pace to close the gap with Max, that gap just kept growing... 22 sec. If Max keeps putting pressure on him the way he did at Imola, he have a chance for the title.

Pity that is was not a dent in Mercedes confidence , but god what a brilliant drive from Hamilton and the earned extra point.

Max V was not voted the best driver if the day - the public fans were right not to vote him in for this! LH and Merc will definately win the 2021 championship this year because they are a much better team. Bottas, needs to pull his socks up or be replaced during this year!

Actually claiming VB moved right to make contact. Then GR reaction post crash slapping VB halo petulantly. OK just had a huge crash but this shows when the pressure is high he will lash out!!?? Toto will have taken note.

    • As a non-Brit I disagree. Great drives from Norris and Hamilton, but failing to mention a 26 second gap to Leclerc for Norris and a free unlapping/nose change for Hamilton is biased in my opinion. Norris would have been third. Lewis would be about 6-7 maybe. Sainz was up from 11th and was among the four quickest for a long time in the race. Anyway; it will be a great season with Red Bull/Merc and Ferrari/McLaren fighting for 1/2 and 3/4. Cheers

  • How come a Williams was even attempting to overtake a Mercedes? What was Bottas doing?

  • Max clip in Miami, fantastic production. Went there for Indy, could be international draw, especially if cheap flights, etc. Perez, even, UK.

  • "It took lewis 5 good laps to get past him (norris)... it took lewis about 4 laps to get past charles lecrerc, has to be said, whereas carlos sainz he brushed aside in about 1 lap... anyway getting back to the point..." 🤦🏾‍♂️ Really peter be more imparcial man. To be exact it took hamilton 2 attemps, two laps to overtake Sainz, who was without DRS, what is your point on saying that??, whereas Charles had DRS with norris, which was the only thing that helped him stay infront of lewis for 4 laps. Great merit to Norris for keeping him behind for 5 laps without DRS, but the straight speed of the mclaren is a lot different than the ferraris for the moment, so what is your point. Stop hating sainz and putting him like he is a Mehh driver. He is ajusting himself to that car, give the time and thr respect.

  • Lewis had a hag but Mercedes is going to have to do a better job in the pits if they want to win the 8th title in a row it seems like every race they have to fight they f up the pit stops it is happening to often specially for a team like that

  • Great race by Max and team, Lewis very good despite his error. Bottas has to be a huge disappointment and costing team points. Vettle, Ricciardo and Alonso looked tired old pros.

    • @Jon Eric Fountain nice no pro, your welcome, thanks as well for the good chat 👌🏾, always nice to have a friendly f1 talk with diferent opinions. In terms of my top 7 of the year it goes like this. 1. Ham 2. Vert 3. Perez 4. Bottas 5. Ricc 6. Lecrerc 7. Norris But i see more caos from 5th to 10th, that can go in so many ways man thats the beauty of it jeje. Norris is doing so much better than i can see him even in 4th as you said and yet ricc will come back strong sooner than later, ten lecrerc is a mighty driver and then you have sainz who might do well as well. I dont know i ll juat ait back an enjoy, i wouldnt even mine if verstappen wins the champ jjekjjej if all thia goes till the end of the year

    • @José Lerebours thanks again for your insight. I like talking to passionate fans. I agree with yiur analysis of him to Sainz. Last year was by far his best year ever and he would of done even better if it were not for his team costing him 2x and him missing two weeks from covid as you also said. I look forward to chatting as the season goes on. Blessings mate.

    • @Jon Eric Fountain for me he is not a great driver but he is togeather with sainz in terms of a driver that is not great but is above the good ones. Why a say that? Cause they are reliable finishing races in points, thy wont always do the impreaive race but they mostly finish in the points and they both have shown a lot growth seens a couple of years ago. Ill give you the not great driver and not a dynamic as other drivers but if he is something is that he is consistent. He did 10 podiums and 9 of them where in a midfield team seconds away from the top 3 teams of those years. Last year he did more to that team than the team did for themself in terms of results, cause as a team they had a better car than they manage to control, perez lost two races by covid and two others, where he was in the podium and the team fail in strategie and 2 other where the engine blow, and delivered to get 4th in the championship. I could keep saying other things but dont get my words i have my opinion and you yours and thats fine. In my case he is one of my favorites togeather with hamilton, alonso, ricciardo an sainz. So just lets see how he does in redbull this year, i think he ll do good enough and beat at least bottas to 3th place.

    • @José Lerebours not that i am right but i think it’s a good analysis by you. My top 7 for the season will go like this 1. Ham 2. VER 3. Bottas 4. Norris 5. Perez (Perez only 5 cause his csr is better than Ferrari) no reason not to be top 4. 6. Leclerc 7. Ricciardo 8. Sainz

    • @José Lerebours thank u for taking time to write back and make your position known. I like checo and i think he is a good driver. But - that’s about it. Not great. Not dynamic. Not consistent. In 9 years of racing he only has 10 podiums and finished one season in top 5. The rest of the time he averages between p7-p10. He has a great car so there is no excuse for him not to get top 4 in the season I just don’t think there is enough history that shows he can elevate a car and be consistent.

  • How did Charles "pull away" from Carlos at the end of the race? I know you are a massive Charles fanboy. But what you said was definitely utter BS. Out of all the drivers changed team Carlos has adapted the most quickly

    • It´s not that he likes Leclerc. It´s that he doesn´t like Sainz. Look at the "abismal" comments and about how it only took Norris 1 lap to pass Sainz and 4 to pass Leclerc. Instead he prefers to ignore that Norris had to pass Sainz due to the fact that Sainz was IN FRONT OF Norris despite the fact that Sainz started 11th, and Norris 7th, that is two rows ahead. So, yes, BS, but nothing we haven´t seen before.

    • Yes, what Windsor said was wrong. Charles did not pull away. That being said, he had a horrible 1st half with all his mistakes. Without the red flag, Leclerc would have been P2 and Carlos may be in top 10.

  • bit tough on Dan,,, he obviously is still getting to grips with the car... very different conditions to last race and consummate team man... no childish blocking of team mate... no drama... perfect insurance policy for Lando's risk taking... any of which could have taken out 2 in front of Dan.. judge Dan at the end of the season,, he didn't do a Perez yesterday

    • What Peter doesn’t seem to appreciate is that yesterday Daniel didn’t make mistakes yesterday - contrary to the vast majority of the field. Perez and Sainz are learning their cars limits by putting them into the wall or gravel. Ditto the other drivers in new cars. Ricciardo on the other hand is chipping away and steadily closing the gap to Lando. He’s in the same phase of learning as he was in the first half of 2019 with Renault - but without the frustration (which is understandable given just how good this year’s McLaren is, and how much potential it has). He’s going about the task in a totally Ricciardo way: good. I’m going to be very interested in how Ricciardo is travelling by Monaco and Spa, but I don’t expect him to be on par with Lando until about the British GP.

  • Man this peter guy doesnt like Sainz very much jajajaj. This video says volumes. When ever he can dig in carlos he does, with a smile in his face, right before saying how Norris could hold hamilton for 4 laps and sainz couldnt hold him more than 1 lap. Its so funny. But joke aside, Norris was brilliant no doubt about it but to compare what sainz did in a new ferrari in his second race against Norris, is out of proportion. In terms of all the new comers Sainz has shown better pace this race than Ricciardo, Alonso, Vettel and Perez compared to their respective team mates, so to just say he did an abysmal performance is getting short and basic in the analysis, to say the list. He did like 4 mistakes in the 3rd sector and a big one in turn 6, that is right but he did as well a good start and lovely overtakes to stroll and gasly twice (before and after his mistakes) and ricc, in the 1st and 2nd sectors where he was doing great, BUILDING HIS KNOWLEDGE OF A NEW CAR, which you seam to forget. After that he was caching your belove Norris with a strong pace just as fast as the all mighty Lecrerc. The truth is sainz is closer to lecrerc than i myself espected. And it seams to me your hate to this guy doesnt allow you to see it. At least you gave Perez the respect he deserves and said the good things he did in this race, in terms of pace, qualy, etc, even though he did as many mistakes as Sainz did (PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY ARE AJUSTING THEMSELFS TO NEW TEAMS🤨, WHICH IS NORMAL), but just finished 12 when verstappen won the race. I think you should hate less and respect more what Carlos Sainz has become, cause he isnt a Verstappen yet, but he beat Norris 2 times in points, in same cars, also matching him plenty of times in qualy, which is one of his weaknesses (even though i think norris is better than him still, sainz is close enough and did beat him anyway), and in two races he did plenty of mistakes, in a rain circuit, with a new car and team and still he managed to do the same pace lecrerc did as many times as Perez also did, just as you kinly mention it only in his case. Also he ended the race 1.6 seconds behind his team mate. Who is by far one of the greats of the present and future of F1 (having the 3 year advantage he has in Ferrari over Sainz). So, even though i guess you wont read this, you should give him the respect he deserves just as much as Perez deserves it as well.

    • @Mountain Man im not saying otherwise, i m not trying to overhype him at all. Perez is an averege driver, that doesnt meah you have desrespect him, and yet they both are showing growth a lot more than a Bottas or a today Vettel. They are both getting slowly with work to Ricciardos level of performance and that has to be respected as much as how better a Hamilton, a Lecrerc, a Verstappen or a Norris is. I mean in terms of drivers this year we have to admit ham, verst, lecr, Ricc, Russell and Norris, who has shown another level this year, are the GREAT drivers of f1, then you have the old GREAT's (with some question marks in the present) in Alonso, Kimi and Vettel and right after them you have Perez and Sainz, very close to them, which are today above a Bottas, an Ocon, a Stroll, a Giov, a Gasly , a Ksunoda (for the moment), a latifi, etc.
