They'll do anything to promote Verstappen. Red Bull is very rapidly becoming the new Ferrari!
Whether they were right or wrong to hand out points for a 2 lap ‘race’ behind the safety car, I cannot see that it was done to help Verstappen. After all, they had the opportunity to increase the penalty for Lewis at Silverstone and also the opportunity to reinstate Vettel’s second place in Hungary. Both of these options would have helped Verstappen, and both could have been done legitimately, but in both cases the appeals were thrown out without even hearing the evidence.They'll do anything to promote Verstappen.

He does seem to let pressure get to him. He was beaten by Button and Rosberg and now a bit of pressure from Max. With a fast teammate, new regs coming in next year which doesn’t guarantee Merc as a top car to be in, maybe it is time for him to leave with his reputation as the best intact.Time for Hamilton to retire - he obviously hasn't got the nerve/desire/cojones/??? this season. Can't even beat Bottas these days! Sad to see the goat going downhill and not realising it for himself.
I know you're trolling but I'll biteYup he's trailing in the championship and can't even beat Bottas in qualifying. Last few seasons he was well clear and Bottas couldn't stay with him.
Not putting the pedal to the metal this season.
