catbergHamilton had Glock, Verstappen had Masi. They're even on ridiculous circumstances. Hopefully the next title fight is much cleaner.
The funniest thing about the Glock incident is that by him not pitting and staying out on dry tyres he actually GAINED positions and time. If he'd actually pitted and been on wet tyres he'd have been overtaken long before then. The whole narrative of "Hamilton bad" is literally fuelled by racist Italian and Spanish journalists.
The two incidents aren't even nearly comparable. At least that race was settled without stewards interference.
The real problem with this season has been Michael Masi's pure incompetency. I don't think that it's been blatant bias towards Verstappen, but his whole attitude of "they should race" to the point where even Alonso noticed the stewards being incredibly lax with penalties and started cutting corners on the first lap(s), gaining advantages. This type of hands off stewarding has led to really poor driving standards, something Verstappen has benefited from because Verstappen's attitude has ALWAYS been "either we leave this corner with me ahead or we both crash". Under Charlie Whiting this gradual erosion of the enforcement of the rules would never have happened and clear boundaries would have been set much earlier on. I don't think you'd have seen Verstappen making moves like he did at Brazil, Italy or Saudi Arabia, as well as Hamilton in Silverstone.
I get that Masi wanted to see the race finish as a "race", but pre-safety car there was 0 chance of Verstappen catching Hamilton barring tyre failure. The whole releasing only select lapped cars really does raise a question mark over the stewards' decisions. In a close fought championship there will now always be people who feel that the Championship was stolen rather than actually earned fairly on track. As much as I dislike Max and especially his father, he did deserve to win the championship, but only in a fair manner.
Masi in the bin for next season please. Anyone with a backbone instead
