Max Verstappen wins the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix! Hamilton P2, Norris P3
I hope the rest of this season is as entertaining as the first 2 races
Lando just absolutely nailed that post-red flag strategy. If he couldn't overtake Leclerc immediately, he would have been 5th or 6th. If he couldn't hold out against Leclerc and Hamilton for so long he would have also been 4th or 5th. But he did both without a mistake. By this point Lando has proved himself enough that I think nobody should doubt him anymore.
Norris had soooo much pace
Haas looks painfully slow. Like, worse than i expected
I should know better than to check Reddit before I’ve seen the race! But good job for Max!Side note, I’m new here from NASCAR and I am blown away by the on screen information via in depth graphics. The one they overlay in the halo is absolutely incredible. Playing F1 2020 pulled me in to watching F1 and I’m so happy it didEdit: also NO COMMERCIAL BREAKS!
Finally breaking that Italy curse!
Feel bad for Leclerc with this one. He was literally 2nd by like 20 seconds when the red flag came in. He easily could have got a podium or even 2nd in the race without that.
That was worth the 3 week wait
Hats off to Ferrari today.They got everything right, the wing work planned for Friday ahead of today's rain, on intermediates in the first phase of the race (the 34 laps before Bottas and Russel's accident) they were tremendously faster than McLaren, Lec with a gap of 26 seconds on Norris and Sainz who, despite his mistakes, kept getting closer to Ricciardo.Without the red flag, Ferrari would have taken the 2nd position.
After all that happened to Mercedes this result is fucking amazing for them. Checo also helped... Also Norris is incredible
Bottas and George died for Ham P2Sums up Mercedes
This has the potential to be a classic season
My condolences to the people in charge of making a 6 minute highlight video
Great race by Norris!
Damn, it hurts that Leclerc didn't get that podium, he would've deserved every bit of it
Brilliant start by Max.
So impressed with Lando today. Absolutely incredible drive from him today.
Yes! You go Lando!It looks like out of the 3 2019 rookies, Lando will be the one surviving! Hope he keeps this level. Quite fun how people wrote him off in the pre season, that RIC would mop the floor with him, but he is delivering.Great race for Max.Lewis recovered really well. Super blessed.Hope Checo gets better for the next races or I'll be getting Albon/Gasly flashes.
Norris!! What a race man..amazing
YES BOYS MAZEPIN FINISHED A RACE
What a horrid race from Perez
Saw a comment yesterday that said: "If Max doesn't try to win the race in turn 1 tomorrow, he has a solid chance at a great result"Max Verstappen: wins the race in turn 1
P4 p5 for the Ferrari, really happy for them, that Carlos consistency is going to help that fight for third place
McLaren ordered Riccardo to let Norris past and then Landon just fucking blasted him. They definitely have enough pace for both drivers to steadily be top 5 but Danny needs to settle in.
Lando has evolved into Mando.
Perfect drive by Verstappen, great recovery by Hamilton, but can you believe Lewis' luck?
Hamilton is an awesome driver, but, damn, he's so lucky. From almost out of the race to second. While Leclerc, 2nd with 25 secs on the 3rd before the red flag, ended out of the podium.
Hamilton's luck definitely matches his talent.
The fact that Hamilton finishes in SECOND place after driving off in like lap 30 is insane
What a race 🇳🇱🏆
Hamilton is without a doubt one of the greatest this sport has ever seen, but fuck me he has some insane luck on his side when things go against him.
Fantastic drive from lando and Lewis, I know lando got driver of the day but you cannot take anything away from Lewis, what a recovery.Max did exactly what a champion does, very reminiscent of Lewis for the last few years.Sorry George, it is a difficult call to make to who was at fault but I agree with toto it was a 60/40 and I do believe if you go for a punt you have to be ready to accept the consequences. It makes it even harder to call going onto the wet side but I don't believe bottas squeezed at all.Great race, great great great race.Shout out to Ferrari as well, good haul of points.
Max vs Lewis!Bring it on!!! This is what we've been waiting for years!
Only Lewis could go off track, lose a front wing, be a lap down, and somehow come back to take 2ndEdit: and a perfectly timed red flag
Solid race from Max, the start was awesome. Poor Perez though. And Leclerc, getting it all back mentally after the spin in formation lap is not an easy task. So kudos to him too.
It's ridiculous how lucky Hamilton is. He would also win the lottery twice in a row ...
VER-HAM-NOR? I ship it!
Hamilton went from P9 to P2 in the second half of the race.Bottas was stuck in P9 and being overtaken by a Williams.It's not just the car.
I have a couple of hot takes but first I have to say Norris was ON FIRE. So yes1. I don’t understand why people are blaming Mazepin for the Latifi accident when it wasn’t his fault in any way. Also no one is mocking Mick for what happened but if it was Mazepin people would go crazy.2. I really think Tsunoda is showing his immaturity this weekend. The frankly over the top reactions over the radio, the unnecessary spin yesterday and him being warned about track limits verbally, with the white/black flag and him continuing to do it which obviously led to the penalty. Something about him is off to me
