Being aware of the risk green track poses as a challenge to the driver is one thing, managing it in racing conditions is another one, and not totally or always in driver's control.
In my opinion, if the driver's not in control then he has no business being on the track.
Just my two cents.
i would not go that far. No need to go to extremes.
Are you suggesting Max WAS in control? Max being unable to keep ANY part of the car on the track suggests he had lost control of the car. Indeed, had Leclerc not taken evasive action and driven even further off the track in avoidance of Max, both Max and Leclerc would have been out on the spot. No win for Max and no 2nd place for Charles. Max in reality owes the fact he won the race to Charles being able to evade the technically out of control Red Bull. Leclerc left the track in avoidance of Max.... Max left the track because he could not control the car and keep it on the track.
Unless you are suggesting that Max deliberately drove off the track to force Charles wide, which is another kettle of fish altogether and more akin to something Schumacher might have done.
I am not suggesting anything of that kind. My suggestion to Michael is not to dwell in extreme positions such as - if the driver is not in control then he has no business being on the track.
Of course this proposition is questionable. Ambient conditions may prove quite often otherwise and beat best to the punch. (In re: Case of Norris in LV is one example.)
Think about his statement from position of ridiculous logic.
1. All driver on the track are always
in control of their actions, says Michael. (Otherwise they would not be on the track).
2. It follows, if there is an incident, then driver has to accept responsibility for his intent to crush. Guilty. No need for investigation.
On serious note, of course we have bunch of very skilled people piloting those cars, but no one is perfect, and guys can make mistake when guided by instinct. In other cases ambient conditions take over, and one is a passenger to some extend. (That's how I interpret Max's drifting on the green tarmac with cold tires).
