I was hesitant to read this topic as I know the whole everything-affects-everything reality too well, but I did find that very interesting. Great work, @mnmracer!
One question though; Hamilton’s drive through in France… Was that for the incident on lap 1 at the high speed chicane where he had a big tank-slapper, or was it for some other corner cutting? I’m asking because I don’t remember that race very well apart from the crazy start and Raikkonen’s exhaust dangling off the car, and I certainly can’t remember Lewis getting a penalty. If it was for the first lap incident, I don’t think he deserved that at all.
2008 was my favourite season ever, probably. 2010 was also amazing, but 2008 was just something else. The races were amazing, and even when they weren’t (Valencia and China spring to mind), the championship battle kept them tense. It still hurts to look back on though because I remember just how upset I was at the result in Brazil. I think I cried in fact!
@Steph @ed24f1 I’m interested to see if the European Grand Prix will be counted as misfortune for Kimi. On the one hand, it was a failure, but on the other hand, he brought it upon himself by flat-spotting his tyre, and then his team chose not to pit him… So in my opinion, I’d just class that as a normal DNF through error. Indirect, I know, but I feel it’s apt… just!
