    100% agreed. Regardless of who is to blame, racing incident, and as long as nobody gets hurt, I'd rather see that than 20 drivers doing 70 perfect and perfectly boring laps around any given circuit (EDIT: Make that 19, there is no way Mazepin is able to do that :D ).
    And as for the Halo... people have been argueing against pretty much any safety improvements. I can understand that that central pillar may be irritating at first, but at this point it's like argueing against seat belts. Which some people still do though...

    I could totally see the argument for racing incident if Silverstone were regarded as such, or if Max had a history of racing as fairly as he claims to. But since neither of those things are the case, we have to do something to let Max know that how he drives is not ok.

    See Imola, Spain, Brooklands, and T4 Monza. All times where Max would have been in a crash if Lewis hadn't backed out. Max wants to talk about "working with the other driver" but doesn't want to take any of the responsibility for that. Lewis lost a place on lap 1 because he knew the move wasn't on, Max had less to lose here but still took the risk and took two cars out while nearly killing his rival. That move wasn't investigated because one driver had the sense to avoid a collision, while the other was on a line that couldn't make the corner.

    The Schumacher documentary released on Netflix today, it's a good watch, I shed a few tears at the end, I'd recommend it!
