Y'all talking about Lewis "extending his lead" as if he has one. Just because you're certain he's going to win this year doesn't mean he's currently #1.

Hamilton got ego involved and tried to win the race instead of just podium spot. Lets be real here. He steamed into that corner in 1st place clearly too much speed

He didn’t accidentally hit it ,he left it on by accident after the formation lap it’s just easier for him to say he hit the button by mistake!!

Brake magic incident happened Toto : Its not Lewis mistake. Its the car problem. Disaster pitstop in Monaco incident happened Toto: Valtteri stopped an inch off from he should've stop. U got to feel for how they are treating Valtteri.

All of these silly extras like brake magic take away randomness, make the races less interesting and favor the big-money teams. Tire blankets? Let them warm up the tires on track. Pinpoint telemetry so that a team can basically guarantee their desired position after a pit stop rather than having to risk coming out in traffic. Probably 50 other things I don’t even know about.

why not make it so you have to hold the button in for say 3 seconds to activate the brake magic.? No accidentally knocking it on shifting or on the clutch then.

Never mind that Hamilton's breaks were smoking like a chimney. Toto probably decided it was Lewis' turn to be thrown under the bus this week for poor team performance. Last week was Bottas' turn.

I want to call BS the button and it's location seems to me that it is NOT the brake bias... This is an excuse to try and save face for Lewis, he just screwed up and went too hard. I mean seriously that is not where you'd put that button I can safely say that, what y'all think

Seen on other videos that it's a biggish green button on the rear of the left side of the wheel. So could have knocked it on the clutch release. Guessing simply making it need to be held for 5 seconds to activate the mode would be a simple software fix to the steering wheel .... that way a momentary click won't activate it -- or have that button response only when car is in a recharge mode (strat) since it'll be used mostly on warm-up laps or behind safety car and mostly the car will be in a charge rather than deploy strat.

to avoid pressing it again, you can either put a guard on it (like a master arm on a fighter jet) or program the software so you need to hold it for 3 seconds or something to avoid accidental activation. Maybe a more visible sign on the wheel that the magic button has been engaged?

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. All Lies!

What engineers that have witnessed catastrophic failure learned in the past is that you don't build a button that can set you up for failure. Many times in the past, where complicated system are being tamed, safety measures or devices often does the complete opposite of the intended effect and sets you up for failure. It seems even F1 engineers are susceptible to this phenomenon. The best engineers on the grid nonetheless committed this design mistake, so that shows you how credible this conundrum of a phenomenon.

The Rosberg wrong button press incident happened just after the start of the race in Barcelona in 2016! Rosberg admitted at the time that he mistakenly selected a low engine mode: which suddenly caused him to go somewhat slow, and hence precipitate the infamous crash which took out both him & Hamilton, and paved the way wide open for Verstappen's maiden win!

You can never have too many multi coloured buttons on the steering wheel! It's called diversity! Although Hamilton will probably demand the 'magic button' be replaced by a black button & renamed the BLM button.
