To fix Verstappen's car after his latest crash.
He's beginning to look a right cock.
Surely Malverstappen (or is it Verstonado ?) has given off that vibe
since the get-go .
Somebody needs to take Mad Max behind the woodshed and knock the facts
of life into him.
If you want to be WDC then you need to win races.
To win races you need to be running when the chequered flag comes out.
To do that its best not to break the car.
A good way of not breaking the car is not to run into things.
That is especially true in regard to your team mate.
Mad Max bumped into another car in FP 2 then he crashed is car.
In the race he bumped into Sainz and a little later he cut the chicane
in a wild overtake action, gained a huge advantage but the rule makers
think it is all OK.
So all Max learn is that he can get away with anything.
Wasn’t it Sainz who cut the chicane?
Lap 58 Mad max overtook Sainz and was going too fast
for the chicane and cut it.
Any ... well -most- other drivers should have been penalized
and at the very least should have to give the illegal gained
I think it was lap 57 where Mad Max bumped into Sainz.
On lap 58 in executing a pass Max didn't have all four wheels on the track but had a wheel at least on the kerb at all times.
Yeh I know as long it is mad max it is OK so explain it away if you like.
Mad max was going too fast to stay on track which make it illegal
in my book. That fact that he barely touched the OUTSIDE of the
kerb doesn't make it legal in any way.

On lap 57 Sainz in defending went clear across the open area inside the chicane.
You should look at it again, mad max again was going too fast
to make the corner and bumped into Sainz who avoided further
damage by going off track.
It is how we amateurs drive karts when we push the man in front
of us off track. ( speaking for myself ).
Steering to the inside of the kart in front when there is no
way to get a clean pass.
Nice for karting or bumper cars.

Pretty big difference.
