Re: Footy or tennis or both?

You can clearly hear from Hamilton's onboard that he lifted just before the corner, Verstappen thought he would be smart by keeping his foot down to sail around the outside but he got it wrong turned in too soon, clipped Hamilton's front wheel and stuffed the car, his fault entirely.
