1-MAX is always fair . And straight to the point . That's one of the reasons why I really like him.

2-As how I know him...MAX will only be more eager to win now. He has the skills to do so.

3-The HONDA power source was on point today . And tomorrow as well .

Max might actually benefit from a nice tow to turn one now.

Thought I'd check again before turning in..bugger,that's tough on Max.There was a single small yellow flag but no yellow warning light on Max's s/wheel.
It's not the end of the world my friend, the points are tomorrow and knowing Max he'll make a lightning start, and together with rain hopefully he'll MAX everyone.

Speaking the truth is one thing, but admitting to speeding through a yellow sector and possibly endangering another competitor and track workers is on a whole other level.

Had he remained silent, the stewards may have looked the other way. But completely admitting guilt in an unsafe action left the stewards no other choice.

I think it was the adrenaline talking, as it often does for the drivers. Let's hope he learns from the mistake.

This was bad judgement from Max. He should have lifted and we wouldn't even be having this discussion. Safety is the first priority at a race track. Period. End of story. He needs to adjust his attitude on this before someone really gets hurt. This was a deserved penalty.

Max really hasn’t changed. Just seems to be more self righteous now. His aggression has cost him the last few races and he’s too stupid to tone it down.

I see . But speaking the truth is no mistake .
Remain silent and lie about the facts , would be a mistake . Everything is/was visible anyway .
Keep in mind . Huge amounts of adrenaline are pumping in that last QF pole lap.

So it is his arrogance, for lack of a better word, that got him in trouble.

I agree, speaking the truth is no mistake. But knowing when not to speak is just as important. Remaining silent isn't lying though.

The fact that he said anything on the topic though is most likely, as you said, adrenaline. It's one hell of a drug

So now that we have a Ferrari front row lockout ahead of a long straight, will we see a Russian GP repeat? Will Lecry blast the team radio crying? Will Vettel give him any slack and let him keep an undeserved front spot?

Good chance Lewis now clinches his 6th title this weekend, if Bottas gets any penalties for repairs.

It is what it is,I'm sure Max is happier with himself doing the Christian thing and owning up to erroneously gunning it past the crashed *no.77 which is unusual and rare in F1.Some other skin peel would so easily keep quiet and hope it would go unnoticed and it shows Max has been brought up properly by his family.

It’s behavior like this which solidifies his Crown as the biggest douchebag of the current F1 field. And there are quite a few contenders for this elusive title, so one REALLY has to try.

''despite there being reports that some of the systems were down'' too right there were.
There was no flashing yellow light on Max's steering wheel AND on the last lap of quali you are concentrating on improving your time. Go figure.
