He would have had plenty of time to take a better shot at Hamilton.
He just choose the wrong moment, on those soft tires, he could have made a clean pass if he choose better.

No, you are wrong again. It is saying everyone is equal has history has proven, they have not been treated that way.

Something a white person will never understand.

FIA should give heavier penalty for this type of bloody mindedness.

He faught pretty good in those passes he made towards the end imo.
It was good racing on his part and he was in the right place to take advantage.

That’s my point exactly. I was responding to the redbull/max fanboys here saying Lewis should’ve backed off.

Albon had the advantage and threw it away with impatience. To expect a top driver to back down is just plain foolish.

We do know it wasn't the steering wheel controls as they changed it when he came in, sounds like an overloaded junction close to the PU.

I heard while I was watching the race that MAX tried to change his engine setting on his steering wheel .
Nothing changed by pushing several times on the button , and suddenly the setting jumped into Anti-Stall mode .
Whatever it is my friend . It's time that they fixed it once and for all ...And ASAP !

With very limited testing time those cramped components under the engine cover do suffer, if you've seen the configuration with the engine cover off the area is a jangle of mechanical and electronic spaghetti bolognese!

Good point,stewards were saying to stay off the new type intrusive kerbs and hearing Merc engineers reminding their drivers to stay off them.

Negative my friends .I don't think it has to do with the curbs . From what we saw , MAX had the Anti-Stall issue already from last year .
It's really sad to see how he lost today the necessary points for the championship .
I know it's not over yet . But every single point matters in the situation .

The latest according Horner :

Horner: Cause of Verstappen’s retirement has been “seen previously” by Honda
2020 F1 season Posted on

5th July 2020, 19:10

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says the technical problem which put Max Verstappen out of the Austrian Grand Prix has been seen by Honda before.

Max was running second behind eventual winner Valtteri Bottas when he retired early on with a suspected power unit failure. “It’s currently under investigation together with Honda,” said Horner. “So as soon as we have some conclusions we’ll let you know.

“It’s not something that we haven’t seen previously.”

Both Mercedes drivers had to manage problems with their cars later in the race. Horner believes Verstappen would have had a chance to win if he hadn’t retired.

“I think a win could have been on the cards today for Max,” he said. “He was holding pace with Valtteri.

“You could see towards the end of the stint Valtteri started to get into some tyre problems. We would have stopped under the pace car, taken the hard tyre that everybody did. And then on the second Safety Car, would Mercedes have stayed out? We would have done the opposite to whatever they did.

“So you just don’t know but I think strategically we were sharp, we were very strong today. It’s a shame we have no points to show for it.”

Verstappen’s team mate Alexander Albon also retired with a power unit-related problem. “Again, we need Honda to come back to us with the full details on that,” said Horner. “But a full investigation is going on.”
