Post-Race Press Conference Highlights of the 2021 Saudi Arabian GP.
Seeing that the video is still somehow alive, I'll just leave it up for now given that it is one of the most controversial races in a long, long time, but it can be deleted at any time.

0:00 - 2021 Saudi Arabian GP - Post-Race Press Conference Highlights
0:03 - VER & HAM give their thoughts on the incidents
5:09 - HAM & VER on their battles and driving style
7:15 - VER on his moves against other drivers
7:50 - VER on F1 Races being decided more by penalties nowadays
8:24 - HAM asked if this title battle is the most intense one of his career
9:16 - HAM on why he didn't go past Max into turn 27

Should be the most viewed Press Conference of the V6 era, surpassing the good old 2019 Canadian GP. Not quite as juicy as that one, but still highly controversial.

Bottas should have asked if there was ANY questions for him right at the start of the conference, would have saved him a bunch of time which he could do a short TikTok video instead.

If Max and Lewis weren’t in the thick of it, I think they could see that their frustration comes from the same place: the rules are unclear and inconsistently applied. Both deserve better.

@Kabir Sharma actually, I’m a VB77 fan, and anyone without a serious bias can see that Lewis and Max have both pushed the limits in very similar ways this season. Fernando has broken the rules on purpose to prove the point. All of the drivers have stated publicly that they don’t know what is and isn’t allowed. Former drivers and pundits have used examples from both Lewis and Max to illustrate the inconsistency. If you are not a rabid fan of either driver, it is easy to see that neither has driven more dirty than the other. But if you think FIA inconsistency is only an excuse (and therefore believe the FIA have been fair), I’ll point out that Max and Lewis are even on penalty points this year. Over the past 3 years, Lewis is more penalized. The whole “Lewis drives hard but fair” argument simply doesn’t hold water unless- like me- you believe that Max does too. To be 100% clear, I think Lewis is a clean driver. I think Max is too. They both push the limits of the sporting code, but when the code is not consistently applied, life on track gets very confusing.

@Kabir Sharma ​ @martin gleeson When they say "inconsistently applied", what they mean is, sometimes Max gets punished for blatantly breaking the rules and a lot of the times he gets away with it too. There's the only inconsistency. It's like attempting to murder someone, then getting off with a warning, then when you do it again, you get jailed and complain the law is inconsistent, because you got away with it last time.

@Daan Loco you are either trolling or just clueless about actual F1 if you say nonsense things like that. First of all I have never said that Alfa would become the best team just to make it clear in case you misunderstood that. I do not own the magic sphere and I can't predict future. What I can say is that there is absolutely no reason so think that Sauber won't be a competitive team for sure in 2022. You saying that with that arrogance shows just lack of understanding this sport and what regulation changes actually mean.

Underrated? He's an above average driver, no match for Hamilton,Leclerc,Alonso or Verstappen. Let's see how Russell performes next year, the one time he replaced Hamilton he performed much better than Bottas but it was with Hamiltons car. It was remarkable, how is that possible? Looks like there is a difference between the Bottas Mercedes and the Hamilton Mercedes...

So it's a bit of gamesmanship from both of them, Max wanted Lewis to pass before the DRS zone, Lewis didn't want that, so he stalled behind. The fact that telemetry showed Verstappen braking more to avoid crossing the DRS line before Lewis was the tipping point for the stewards. If the stewards want to avoid gamesmanship like this in the future, they need to clearly outline quickly when a driver is to give position back, and where. If the drivers don't want to be sporting, you make them be sporting.

8:30 Lewis lost his maiden championship by 1p and finished 2nd tied with Alonso on countback. He then won his maiden championship by 1p in the last corner of the last race. In 2016 he lost by 5p and literally had those points in his grasp if Rosberg made the smallest mistake. I can see why Lewis does not consider this the most intense battle.

@Mc GetRekt you’re irrelevant. he couldn’t hold him so he should let jhamilton pass anyway. also, it’s racing. so why he didn’t pass? because he would be catch in drs zone? so why he crashed even when realized max was braking? there’s no answer for these questions, the only thing you can do is just trying to blame max and defend jhamilton whatever it takes. it’s not logical, it’s insane. it’s a shame that we’re at this point now: discussing why drivers didn’t overtake. wtf?!
Mc GetRekt
Mc GetRekt Πριν μήνα
Irrelevant though, Verstappen was told by the FIA to give the place back further back on the track about 30 seconds before, but he ignored them so he could get to the DRS zone and only then let Lewis past, using a punishment like a position drop to gain an advantage at a DRS zone is also not allowed.

@Caleb Hobson it’s funny how y’all didn’t blame jhamilton when he slowed down on a qualifying this year (hungary i guess) because he wasn’t fast enough so he tried to avoid them to set a faster lap. you’re all saying “why they didn’t just pass him?” and that wasn’t a dirty move. wtf!? also, on last race he slowed down on formation lap, is it clean driving? damn it, why jhamilton didn’t pass max on the race when he realized he was slowed down? just because he notice that it was before drs zone so by the logic he would prefer to crash instead of just passing him. it’s a shame to defend a driver like him

jz1199 Πριν μήνα
did you see how Lewis breezed past Ocon? and Bottas just barely managed it at the last possible moment, that is why they don't ask, because either his and Lewises cars aren't equal, or he is lacking in skill, so how would you ask him whether it is one or the other? because he won't say about the car even it is true him being the team player, so the question would then sound like - why are you so bad that you barely managed that what your teammate did like it was nothing OR the other thing - Ocon wasn't really racing Lewis like Alonso did when he tried to fend off Lewis so Ocon could win, anyway - these are not the things you ask or discuss at press conferences - these things you discuss with your mates at the pub or get into fights on fan forums on internet

I found it interesting the way Hamilton answered the question at the end... "why didn't you just pass him". There was clearly gamesmanship from both sides that caused the collision, but under normal circumstances, if the car in front of you slows down, you just zip right past him/her and worry about the why's and how's later on when you're in front of them. As much as Hamilton tries to blame Max for brake testing him, its clear to see that if Hamilton was not playing his own DRS game, he would've easily zipped past when Max was down shifting....

@alan mac Nice try on the cap, mate. Max repassed Lewis BEFORE the last corner, not once did he do it on the straight. Yes, he did get DRS, but he made the move BEFORE the last turn. BEFORE! Perhaps you should rewatch the race when you sober up? Or actually watch the race when you "watch" the race instead of scrolling on your phone.

@Nathan Lemoine I'm not English too, Lewis brainwashes all of his country and others, to believe he is the good guy and the max bad. The only reason Lewis wasn't dirty the past years, because he had the faster car, so no need for nasty actions. He pushed Max of track in Silverstone, and celibrated while max was still in hospital. He seems to be a wolf in sheep's clothing, acting like a holy saint, and a lot of people buy that. If Max does something that really is not aloud than he gets his punishment (2 penalties last sunday) Lewis can't do wrong it seems, because of his holy status. How can someone be a fan of a driver like that. Racing is competition, and Max is not unfair at all, just less afraid. Lewis plays with peoples minds, he plays psychological games with other drivers.. ignoring max at podias (in the beginning) just to make him sort of insecure.. max is only 24 and a kid, just as Lewis was when he was younger.

@Freek F F You still don't understand F1 it's outrageous. First, you can see i'm a dick in english grammary, so nope, I'm not English and i'll surely not reading those papershits. FIA ARE SUPPOSED to judge the ACT not the CONSEQUENCE. And you should accept there is part of risk in their job dude. Ok, he hit the barrier hard, but if Grosjean can't die from his crash, wonder how this one could possibly kill him. Even in F2, at Jeddah, with that amazing crash, only a ankle ? You know better than me they took the gamble to go into copse like this, Max knew what's gonna happened but he still keep his foot on the gas. They knew it. But no one backoff. So yeah, stfu and learn to accept Max can be in the barrier and he should learn how to drive without pushing other driver out of the track. Each time he defends it's the same tactic : defend the inside to push the driver out of the track. EACH TIME THIS KID DID THE SAME SHIT. And for once, Lewis had inside and tried to pull the same manouver as Max. But Max didn't backed off, so yeah. Deserved.

tbh that has always been F1 mercs abusing trhe engine penalty flaw, the trend of teams changing or stopping aero tweaks the week before FIA starts targeting them. even Alonso pointed this out and did it back in Sochi. it isnt right but there isnt one F1 driver who didnt take advantage of the way FIA governs with their inconsistency. Until this day hamilton has not once admitted that what he did in Silverstone this year was over the line. In my opinion i do think before Silverstone and Hungary Max still carried respect towards the racing with lewis but after that he just cared about it less because he realized Lewis will bite at anything if it can stick

Without taking sides (RB/Merc), which many of the comments below appear to be doing, and accepting that Max had been breaking for some time prior to the instance where he rapidly decreased his speed, it seems rather strange, if not completely inconsistent with the context of an F1 race, that Lewis would claim to be confused about what he was to do when the opportunity to pass Max arose.

Both drivers knew the DRS line was coming and didn’t want to be first over it. They equally created an enormously dangerous situation.
Trent Trepanier
Trent Trepanier Πριν μήνα
@John Judge I don’t disagree, and I think Max definitely deserved a penalty, no doubt. The reason for his slowing like that though was the strategy of the DRS line like we discussed. It doesn’t make it right by any means but it’s easy to see how he came to the conclusion. But still inexcusable. But again, he wouldn’t have slowed down as much had Lewis went by, so Lewis made it worse as well by his actions.
Trent Trepanier
Trent Trepanier Πριν μήνα
@John Judge I disagree Max had more time. Lewis knew from the moment Max got passed that there was a good chance the position would be given back. And Max slowing down wasn’t in and of itself dangerous as that’s what’s needed to let someone by. Lewis also slowing is what caused the danger. They were both doing it though for the same strategic reason, though, and that’s what led to it become really dangerous.
Trent Trepanier
Trent Trepanier Πριν μήνα
@John Judge I fully agree Max deserved a penalty for the collision and the other for gaining an advantage off track. My only point was both VER and HAM knew what was at stake and created an extremely dangerous situation. And I also agree if either of the drivers clearly destroys the chances of the other in Abu Dhabi the consequences need to be severe.

@Joligram M Good guess - I have Dutch heritage! I might have a Dutch-sounding name, but I can guarantee you that I speak English at a, if not excellent, then at least high level of proficiency. Besides, you're missing the point. At 9:34, Lewis says: "...and then it became apparent he was trying to let me pass, which was, I guess, what he'd been asked to do, but before the DRS zone...and...so that would mean that he'd just DRS back past me coming through the last corner." So, he clearly knew what was up, and was hanging back so that he could get DRS instead. Which not only proves that your English is suspect, but also that he lied over the radio by insisting that he was confused. They were BOTH playing a high-speed game, but Lewis is trying to come across all innocent and virtuous.

With all the respect that deserves a multiple times F1 champion, you know the risks of getting that close to car in front of you. Not saying Lewis intentionally faked a brake check from Max (don’t get me wrong his maneuver wasn’t the best letting you pass) but damn, FIA, this is your fault for not being able to manage this for a few races already! These guys are human in the end. I expect big chaos for Abu Dabhi, and I believe however it ends, I’ll be sad 😔

He has no choice. Mercedes want to break Michael Schumacher record with Bottas as wingman. Guess they promised him a multi contract if that happens, but during the contract sign they weren’t sure it would happen this year because Max was leading the championship so they offer him another 1 year contract which he declined. Why did you think Rosberg left..

@Phani Gautam Yes it’s questionable but if you hear the call to Max he is told to give the place to Lewis strategically hence why he was trying to give it to him before the DRS zone. Lewis hung behind 1. Because he didn’t know Max was told to let him pass and 2. Even with Max slowing down he wanted the DRS. There was nothing wrong (regulation wise) with Lewis staying behind him but Max hitting the brakes for 2.4g while on a straight in the DRS zone is absolutely unacceptable.

Max had to give the place back, but was trying to give the place back without actually giving the place back... As in maintain DRS and retake the place immediately, this is a bit wily, but something many f1 drivers would try. Whilst nobody can blame the lead driver for this, as the FIA have not made clear enough that when a place is returned it must be done for 1/2 a lap min for example, you thus can't blame either party for playing this DRS game. This said, the obligation to give the place back safely still exists, and in this case max's actions were inconsistant, slight weave in either direction near the middle of the road, but more importantly the 2.4g braking just before lewis crashed into him. It's that dangerous deceleration whilst under obligation to yield a place which got him the penalty.
