"How Mercedes Secret System Cost Lewis the Win | Azerbaijan Grand Prix Explained" Truthfully - it was applied far too heavily on the warmup lap, nothing happened post start but over-heated brakes. But that's F1 for you - when you gamble and lose - you lie - vehemently. "Marathon not a sprint" was code for "here comes one hell of a gamble" - followed by "don't worry Lewis we knew this could happen and it was the only shot you really had - wasn't worth taking though"

I'm sorry but you are usually so knowledgeable when it comes to stuff like this, but the explanation you gave for the "brake magic" was not entirely true. The magic is for bias and it is used to help with temps but the design you explained was incorrect. The bias for the magic puts the brake power to the front by over 80% depending on the track, and it is used for out-lap brake warm up and for tracks with aggressive/tight corners. It is not a system designed just to heat up the brakes. Mercedes is not that simple.

F1 have no one but themselves to blame for the loss of millions of fans for allowing the teams to make the car into computers.Its like they forget that fans loved the crashes we had in the sport back in the 60s 70s 80s and 90s,we don't like seeing drivers die but we love a few good crashes per race.And for the last 7 years Mercedes have had the best car for years hence winning 7 double world titles and before that Red Bull had the best car and they won 4 championships in a row which leaves the sport boring despite having some of the best drivers in the world.I know they still have fans it's just in this day and age they could and should have millions more.

It's hamilton's foolishness that has costed him the victory. He deserved what happened with him in azerbaijan race. His team gives him the adwantage always of using DRS & not to botas. I have always noticed. I believe botas is a much better F1 driver than lewis.

Merc is possibly using Selective Brake control to assist steering input to the car. I designed a way to get selective bias the rear differential to aid in Corner Out control with simple Belville washers. Both may be out of the sporting regulations.

He cracked under Pressure simple as that. Stop blaming everything and everyone else, Lewis is NOT GOAT, never will be either.

In 1994, 1995 everybody screaming that Schumacher are cheating with an illegal traction control. In 2021 everybody celebrating Mercedes F1, who uses different systems as all the others! Last year the use DAS for upwarning the tires, now they have the magic button. The only thing I can say is that a middle 90 F1 car had just 5 Buttons in the Wheel and today there are so many electronic systems, that the driver not winning a race, it’s the car! You can’t compare the old cars with them from today, but the better electronic helps so many more, so it’s not surprising that AMG F1 dominate the F1 since 2014. put the same electronics/systems to the other cars and we will have a real Race.

My magic brake failed on me once. Barreling downhill toward our shed-barn, at the last moment went to pedal backwards to stop, chain came off and ended up hurtling into said building and smacking into the back wall. Luckily made of corrugated tin and not hitting the 4`x2` uprights. However, over 50yrs later, I still don`t have the deepest of voices.

Either way it's great to see a FAIR field all racing in environments where stuff happens and mistakes cost.......breaking down all the semantics does not negate the fact that on any given day there could be better cars and drivers. Making it seem like Lewis should always win is like politics its dysfunctional and will ultimately ruin the SPORT of F1 racing.

In the Mercedes Debrief video, they said the button was clipped AFTER the start on the run down to turn 1. Lewis turned the wheel to lunge away from Perez and his finger clipped the button. Dozens or hundreds of starts with no problem. Then this. Accidents happen and this was just a freak occurrence. If they can, Merc may try to move the location of the brake button and put something less critical ( the radio button??) in that position.

You have to ask yourself why Hamilton apparently first calmly started to wonder what went wrong long after the finish. Immediately after it happened there was just a despondent "sorry guys", no sense of bewilderment at all. My guess is he forgot to switch it off (also seemed to have overused it with his smoking brakes) and they gave us a little spiel to save face. Also, he was released from his pitstop at least 5 car lengths after Gasly, so he didn't cause the holdup.

Mercedes didn't cost Lewis the win, LEWIS, the DIVA, cost himself the win by not paying attention and being a dumbass. Let's face facts, Lewis is great out front in the BEST CAR on the grid. If he has to go through people and make daring passes, he is lost, period. I can't wait for them to get rid of Lewis. Georgie Boy proved last year that he could step into that car and WIN, but for a puncture. Lewis gets what 50 plus million a year. George would get like 5 million, maybe

It all makes sense and the smoke pouring out of the brakes as Hamilton sat on the grid suggested that something had made them extremely hot, but I find it a little bit far fetched that he knocked the switch just this one time, despite the system having been in use for a large number of races. Hamilton had been involved in a lot of great fights into the first corner during the last couple of years but apparently he had never knocked the switch before? It sounds like an excuse rather than an explanation.
