In other news we shouldn’t be surprised as the car is hard to drive: https://www.gpblog.com/en/news/72835...ink=inarticle2

Max Verstappen saw his victory go up in smoke after a spin in the Turkish Grand Prix, but according to Allard Kalff and Kees van de Grint the Dutchman doesn't have to cry at all, because in their opinion he just did very well.
It goes on
Quote:
Crying out or not?

''In these circumstances the driver comes forward and Senna was so good at it. It was also a very strong performance by Verstappen, until the moment it was all about. Of course I won't say anything special, because he was disappointed himself and I was disappointed too. But that shows he's a good sportsman," says Kees van de Grint, Bridgestone's former tyre expert.

After the race Verstappen pointed to a wrong setup, but Van de Grint doesn't want to use that as an excuse. ''The Red Bull car was clearly not an easy car and was one of the cars that spun the most. This car just isn't easy and then you see that crazy car control by Max. I can understand why it was difficult in the race. He doesn't have to cry, because he just did well," concludes Van de Grint.
Basically what we saw in Turkey was Verstappen being like Senna.

That article is about how it is hard to drive anyway. And on top of that there was the wing issue.
Amazing.

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.
was that really a thing? people in 2016 were that angry that a 31 year old was having fun on social media?

prophetic i suppose...

imagine if you could go back in time and tell everyone what a 70 year old man was about to spend the next 4 years doing on twitter?

In the article Van de Grint says: "The Red Bull car was clearly not an easy car and was one of the cars that spun the most. This car just isn't easy and then you see that crazy car control by Max. I can understand why it was difficult in the race."

Could that not be down to a combination of the wrong setup mentioned by Verstappen plus the very wet conditions, which was why the car was not an easy car and was difficult in the race, rather than just the car itself that's not easy?

Imagine if you could go back in time and tell everyone that twitter would censor speech from one political party while allowing holocaust deniers to deny the holocaust. See, this inserting politics thing is fun

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

Oh, except Hamilton "figured it out" as soon as he was in the dominant car without a teammate that could beat him... hmm....
You'll get burn't at the stake for heresy!

Sorry - I have to ask.
What has that got to do with the Turkish Grand Prix 2020, Round 14 of the 2020 championship?
