Crashing into Kmag was imho 100% Checo's own fault.
But the huge difference between Max and Checo is a recurring theme.
Checo just isn't on top of things.
He always has trouble with overtaking ferrari's, mercs, AMR's, mclarens whereas Max generally just flies past them.
And his qualifying is just sub par.

maxs crashes all seem to stem out of his competitive personality, checos crashes seem to always be out of frustration.

Checo was hyped up from previous and entry into the turn was wrong, he blew it alright and a day to forget for him.

Removing him this year, even for 1 race will hinder that.

But for sure next year his seat is in danger.
If there was no Max, you'd think the RB19 was a crap car, or at least 'average' (no better than the merc, ferrari, mclaren or AMR)

They say the RB19 is tuned to Max' preferences, but even if that were true, it wouldn't be 0,7sec+ is qualifying.
Other teams also have different drivers, which each have their preference, so there it's the same issue. But in qualifying, there the difference between drivers is max. 0,3 sec, and usually a lot less (the difference between NOR and PIA was only 0,04sec).

Given the performance of the car in Max' hands, given the mediocre performance of Checo last year, and this year again, if Checo has a seat next year at RB, I think RB takes a huge risk.
Other teams are catching up to the RB19 performance, so an underachieving driver is no guarantee for succes.
They probably can and will if he keeps damaging the car and racking up the repair bills.

Max hardly runs crash damage anymore.
Supposedly this is a list of drivers and their 2023 damage (sorry, was published on dutch tv, so in dutch)


Max has about the least damage dollars, but Checo is up there together with the known usual suspects

I have to say about the start, not only did Max hold off a quick starting PIA but then cheeky NOR whipped through on the left a bit but Max outfoxed him in the turn.
So...only Max can scupper two mugging attempts from the Laren gang

MAX said that he got wheelspin . Piastri didn't got wheelspin and a better traction.
But as you say , he did it with a great move to keep both McLaren's at bay.
MAX loves a good fight anyway .

Just 3 away from Prost's 'The Professor' 51 wins now, Quatar should be a piece of cake and unlikely to have rain there.
