Not necessarily. But if the left-hand thread rumours are to be believed, it screwed his race.

And they didn't notice that through a GP weekend? Or they didn't tell the mechanics adjusting the wings?

Just want to point out, that after the first finish outside of a podium all year, a disaster if a race that still left him 6th and ahead of his teammate, a drive that in a championship car, if his worst day without mechanical issues is a 6th, it is very much a championship caliber driver, there has been multiple pages of how immature and childish the 23 year old verstappen is.

Meanwhile, hamilton is lauded, and verstappen is being compared negatively to him when it comes to maturity. But...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.eur...tory-amp.shtml

This is from 2016. Well into Hamilton's 30s. So, maybe if max is still like this at 32 or so, he hasn't figured it out like hamilton supposedly has.

Oh, except Hamilton "figured it out" as soon as he was in the dominant car without a teammate that could beat him... hmm....

Don't they adjust them in a pitstop with a gun? Probably habit that had them put the gun on the setting to turn it the old way, and in the 2 seconds they had to make the adjustment, had no time to realize they were turning it wrong way until it was too late.

But, that is stuff that mercedes would have had right, which is the difference between them and everybody else. Thank god it wasn't ferrari, or they would have unscrewed the whole wing off the car!

This year not that much, but he has very little to be upset about so far.
Yep. Hamilton matured magically after he had the best car and no teammate that could beat him.

Yeah, memoriez can be funny like that. Like people in this thread not remembering Hamilton's childishness well into his 30s.

This is the Turkey GP thread where Verstappen was pants and mardy and Hamilton was sublime and grateful.

I agree that it would be nice for Max to grow up a bit and lose the bad attitude.

However, there aren’t many drivers I’d have in my team over him.

If they only have 2 seconds, or how ever long the stop lasts, I think that's the stuff Mercedes wouldn't have changed because of exactly that, habit.
