    Mercedes should have known that Lewis had flipped the switch. Plus those smoking brakes should have been a warning. Even i a lame man could have handled that better. Whoever was incharge was sleeping on the job

    7:15 and following seconds you can see the Hamilton's finger push the "magic" bottom again when to move the car because Pérez its there! Why just block left tire? & why don't have any other curve problem with 90% brake balance on front? Because He laying. Take a look when star block the left tire its complete out of the place for braking!!! Dtart brake 20 mts long that Pérez, and perez said that he take all the longest time to brake, its why on tv Hamilton's car appears like Advancement to Perez.

    Just feel like this he hit it by accident is BS. Would like to see them show the data that it was by accident vs an actual mistake of him leaving it on. Trying to keep up the “Lewis doesn’t make mistakes” rhetoric. He does, like all drivers, but by the luck of the gods usually doesn’t pay for it. Ie Imola, or every other race start in 2015 and 2016 where the Mercedes was just so much fast he could make up the places again

    SOOO glad this happened to Hamilton, not because I don't like him, but because there is no way he deserved to win that race! Perez held him off practically 2/3 of the race. He (Perez) deserved that win. Side note: I really don't like those standing starts for this very reason. It eliminates all the work the lead driver was doing.

    Nothing to do with pressure. He should not feel any pressure at all. He alrealdy has secured number 1 spot in records. He should be relaxed. Apart from that the only time he was under pressure this year was in Bahrain when VER was chasing him. But he did not make any mistake. Imola mistake while overtaking a backmarker had nothing to do with pressure. He was the hunter not the hunted one like in Bahrain. He made the mistake out of nonchalance. In Baku Perez was under pressure because HAM had the better start. It was just bad luck that he pressed the button, not because of pressure!

    90% brake bias under brake heating button is 15% higher than any other journo or pro has suggested? The brake heating button is up on the left, a red button about two down? Bottas has similar but tagged bh for brake heating. How can I know so much more than an ex pro driver being paid a fortune.

    One puncture was rear left, the other rear right. Pirelli and teams both totally open about this on race day and since then. Come on Jolyon, does noone check this nonsense. I'd get the facts right for half the cash you're paying him and you could have my wheelchair to add to f1 diversity!

    Wow so many people want to undermine lewis. Yes he made a mistake but it's not solely his mistake too. It's also a design error or also it can be just a programmable mistake. I mean have you guys never ever done any mistakes. Mind you in that moment every driver and every single one of the team is under pressure. Which sometime heightens the chance of making a mistake.

    just want to add, the extra temperature causes massive oxidation on the brake rotors which increases how much they grab. Compounded by the forward bias, the temperature and grippy brakes caused the lockup

    Jolyn says Hamilton was super cautious for the rest of that lap after he recovers because he was concerned about his brakes but apparently he knew he had pushed the button, no? His team didn't tell him from the telemetry? Hamilton didn't realise it was handling as if the magic was on? Simply a mistake from Hamilton I'd say, something Toto Wolff had trouble saying in his post-race interview. I don't know who is fooling who here but I smell some BS somewhere... Again
