He started P13, passed five cars on his opening lap - and was up to P3, chasing down his Red Bull team-mate, Sergio Perez, after only four racing laps of Spa. And then he won it. With ease. Going away. Max Verstappen, the 2021 World Champion, proved so untouchable in every department at Spa that he even set fastest lap on medium-compound Pirelli race tyres. In this video.

Peter Windsor analyses the speed of the Adrian Newey-engineered Red Bull RB18 in the context of the new FIA Technical Directive that at Spa was policed for the first time. He looks at the first-lap accident that eliminated Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton - and at Ferrari's long, long afternoon (which resulted in a closely-run P3 finish for Carlos Sainz).

    MadMAx deserves the win. Phenomenal talent, flawlessly executed drive. Red Bull seem to be doing everything right, again. Ferrari continue with their strategic blunders, but the car clearly doesn't have the pace.

    The Elephant in the room, of course, is Dame Lucille and his continuing spiral into irrelevance. "Idiot - He only know how to drive from the front..." said Alonso, after The Dame turned into him on lap 1. At least he acknowledged his responsibility for the incident. And, as expected, the Steward's awarded Dame Lucille no penalties - whereas any other driver would have been assessed a five-place grid penalty at the next race. I can't imagine why that is ....

        F1, you are clearly in the Jaxpoopoo Hamilton ass-kisser's camp. Now THAT is name-calling. Neener, neener.

        "The Dame" or "Dame Lucille" have been included by Marquis Whose Who publishers as a legitimate adjunct to the entry for Lewis Hamilton. So, in reality it isn't name calling at all, when it is part of the world-wide social media vernacular.

        So don't get so upset. Just accept the fact's as they present themselves. But of course, you and your ilk don't LIKE facts when they document the downfall of your sucubus and all too flimsy reason for living.
