"What riled me was the fact that Verstappen casually strolled past the mangled Mercedes where Hamilton was obviously struggling to get out." I think at that point hamilton was trying to get his car out to keep going in the race, rather than struggling out of the cockpit. Bono came on the radio to tell hamilton to stop and switch the engine off. Obvious hamilton was fine!

Midlife crisis begun....

The wheels were spinning , and Hamilaton was obviously fine. That wasn't obvious at all when Saint George of Wisbech pushed off Bottas at Imola ta big speed and strolled over to a potentially dazed or injured Bottas to tell him it was his fault.

To quote Jackie Stewart: 

“Verstappen is taking longer than expected to mature,” three-time champion Stewart told the Daily Mail.

“Not even to go to see Hamilton after a serious accident when you have just driven over the top of the guy is something I don’t really understand – especially when he is still in his car and remained there for a long time before getting out.

“Max has quite a lot to learn. But who will he listen to? He’s very, very good. He’s probably the fastest driver on the grid now, but to be a proper champion you cannot be entangling yourself in crashes all the time.”

This is the same Stewart who (along with the rest,  apart from Purley ) drove past Williamson's inverted ,  burning March at Zandvoort in 1973 , having convinced himself Williamson was OK. Odd how Purley was straining every sinew  to get Roger out .
