Max Verstappen was completely at fault fell into the trap of being goaded into braking later on the 1st lap trying to be a 1st lap hero. but as brundle always says you cant win it on 1st but you can lose it, actually come to think of it he's had a poor season probably Verstappen have poorest of big 3 teams season compared to pre season expectations but then that has been either the car has let Verstappen down or he has let himself down through silly mistakes like today. Without making excuses for the guy we've discussed this on many of an occasion & his fantastic drives over the last 3 years have gave us unrealistic expectations as we should expect these mistakes / inconsistencies . as we have to remember prior to debut for toro rosso he had only been in single seater for 12mths & had 11 race distances spilt into 3 short races of euro F3 with cars that 17secs slower a lap than F1
kimi quote of "if cant see a blue light then he should stay in commentary box" was very funny although going be awkward at the next grand prix. if di resta has to interview kimi
Kimi Raikkonen has no complaints with Ferrari approach after Hungarian GP
Interestingly Kimi decides to play the team line right before contract announcements a race he probably could have won if it were not for the circuit

Martin Brundle Retweeted Jenson Button
My point JB is that Fernando is not a comedy act under a podium full of Ferrari/Merc drivers,he deserves to be up there fighting for champs

Replying to @MBrundleF1
Totally agree Martin, how dare an F1 driver have a personality and bring fun to a sport that sometimes takes itself way too seriously

Alonso prob better than 3 guys on podium. Sad he's joking in a deck chair, waste of talent and reminds team bosses why they don't want him
When Max and Danny were talking before the race, Danny said that he was looking forward to dong a Shoey. Max had been watching replays of previous Hungarian GP's, and got the wrong idea.
1 - A Verstappen Torpedo is completely accidental, excusable and understandable to media and team alike - in complete contrast to a the Kvyat brand of Torpedo
2 - Ferrari not letting Kimi past Seb when he has car issues is an out cry and proves he is number 2 driver. However if Kimi had been in front of Seb and had car issues and Ferrari had let Seb through there would have been an outcry and it would have proven Kimi was a number 2 driver.
3 - Lewis Hamilton had a good sense of honour.
4 - if you mess with his team mate (Hulkenberg on Grosjean at the start) then KMag will come for you (he even said it on radio at the start).
5 - The Force India drivers are incapable of not being on the same piece of race track.
6 - Sky F1 aren't going to let the actual facts get in the way of a 'brilliant Di Resta comeback' story.
Incubus Maybe someone should have retweeted that comment to the 3 drivers on the podium and the Ferrari and Mercedes teams
RasputinLives Since when did Red Bull take an interest in Subway?
This proves why Vettel's Hungarian GP win was nothing short of a miracle - Iforsports
Kimi's best 3 races have Monaco, Silverstone and Budapest this season
Two of those seems to be when the Ferrari is the fastest car where he is closer to Vettel. Silverstone he has always gone well on and the next race Spa is another track where he has great record as well so be interesting to see if he is close to Vettel whether he will be compliant again when he says he has more pace given the circuit is much more easier to pass
Hungaroring is one of those annoying circuits " Monaco without the walls!" - unfortunately given the nature of the circuit you can form a queue behind by maintaining track position
FB that do you that is still cheaper than 50 million reasons they use to pay him then 28 million reasons if he did not drive for another team
I suspect Vettel was vulnerable without Raikkonen as the stopper in the bottle.
I recall significant periods where Kimi was more than a second behind, but hadclewis in drs. Not prolonged periods granted.
With overtaking in single figures though, its not much of a stretch to think it would have been ok.
