  1. In different circumstances - wet track, mechanical issue or Hamilton pushing him off the track to any degree - “I had no control as I rejoined” would have been a valid excuse, but a pure error on his part in dry conditions meant, as NevixRed said, the answer to what else he could have done is not tried to take the corner too fast and cocked up in the first place.
  2. I don’t think he was in danger if he hadn’t gone off the track, but once he had he only kept the place because he rejoined the track in a manner which gave Lewis the option of “brake or crash”. The question is whether or not “I wasn’t in control of the car as it rejoined” is a valid excuse. The stewards decided not.
  3. That would have still been evasive action being the only thing letting Vettel keep the lead. Perhaps rephrase it as he only kept the place because of the way he came back onto the track, regardless of whether or not he was in full control of the car at the time.
  4. I guess it’s because he only kept the place because he forced Hamilton to take evasive action, regardless of whether or not the car was under his control at the time.
  5. Indeed. He only kept the place cos he cut off Hamilton, but equally there was nothing else he could have done.
  6. Actually I’m not entirely sure the kids are buying it. Based on the anecdotal evidence of looking around the screening I went to the average age of the Bond crowd is probably about 45-50 with very few people under 30. But as that older demographic are out in such force it doesn’t matter if the kids don’t bother.
  7. I instantly reacted with “terrible choice”, but then remembered I’ve never actually seen him in anything apart from the small role in Harry Potter, so wasn’t really basing that view on anything
  8. Or he did he do exactly what he needed to get himself on the throne? If he hadn't revealed Jon's true parentage Dany wouldn't have been pushed over the edge, instead just defeating Cersei with a minimal amount of collateral damage and life loss in the Red Keep itself and then done her best to rule well with Jon Snow at her side.

    This year’s done the opposite for me (albeit speaking as someone who had zero interest in it before Alonso’s first attempt); 2017 introduced me to it as a “mainly based on driving skill” event because someone I knew as an all time great came so close, but this year has said “Oh, no, actually it is another ‘you’ve got to be in one of the few competitive cars to have a shot’” thing.
  10. A lot of sites seem to consider the events of a GOT episode to be breaking news. Maybe they’ve toned it down in recent years, but during previous seasons I deleted The Guardian, The Independent and a few other random news sites from my Favourites list after I got up at 0640 on Monday morning and saw spoilerific pictures and headlines which they’d decided needed to go on the front page of the site as soon as possible after the US/2am airing. Never added them back either, despite previously being daily reads. I think on Monday I’ll be Rllmuk only (and well away from this thread!) until I’ve seen the finale.
  11. I definitely like to go into any show or movie knowing as little as possible, but the BBC an article the other week about people who actively seek out spoilers. The most common reasons seemed to be either quashing anxiety about not knowing what would happen and/or enjoying analysing the build up and spotting all the signs to what they know is coming. I do like doing that, but want to save it for a second viewing!
  12. Although in straight ticket prices it’s almost there, and cinema prices are cheaper now (at least locally. I think seeing Avatar in 3D cost me £12, but the same cinema is now £4.99 for 2D and 7.75 for the rare 3D screenings they still do).
  13. Dunno, but Hamilton would have at least continued looking for the win rather than giving up after turn one.
