“He accused Kamui Koabayshi of dangerous driving without watching a replay when the two came together at Spa last year, then had to sheepishly retract his comments once he did watch the replay, which clearly showed the collision to be his fault.”
You do realise that you’re describing almost every incident ever?
And I’m sorry PM, but your recollection of the incident isn’t quite right.
“At the time of the impact, Hamilton is moving left – but he was at the point where he should have been turning into the corner already.”
This is clearly false. For one thing, part of the reason that the accident happened is that he didn’t have a clue that Kobayashi was still near him, so why would he be intentionally squeezing him? I don’t have any reason to disbelieve him saying this. For another, watch the onboard- does that really look to you like he should have turned in already? Perhaps if he wanted to miss the apex by driving into the armco on the other side of the track. He should be turning in around the moment that he makes contact with Kobayashi. But he’s obviously a bit pre-occupied at that point.
Watch around the 37 second mark- he doesn’t turn in until past the point where Hamilton made contact with Kobayashi.
I actually agree that it was Hamilton’s fault, but you’ve blown that incident out of proportion by accusing him of petulance for that particular incident (when he behaved like every F1 driver ever) and of driving that corner differently to try and intimidate Kobayashi, which is blatantly false- he just stupidly didn’t realise Kobayashi was actually alongside him.
