As an aside, Max is also the top sim driver -- at least 1/2 second faster than anyone on earth in sim racing. He has a sim rig on his private jet.
I only ever watched the 1st series. Is it worth watching the rest? It felt 'scripted' to me and a bit false...Funny thing is, ever since Drive to Survive, in a way I've become more interested in the mid-pack rivalries than the front runners
It's a testament to how good that show is because I can't say I've ever felt the same about any series before
And damn straight, Max is difficult to like
YesI only ever watched the 1st series. Is it worth watching the rest? It felt 'scripted' to me and a bit false...
I doubt they'll have the same package this weekend. We shall seeSo will Mercedes bring a zero sidepod W14 to this weekend's race?
Wolf has put a press statement out in the form of an open letter to the fans saying 'sorry we made a shit car last year and continued with it this year and didn't listen when the drivers said get rid of it'. But will it be gone by the weekend?
I think Aston Martin will be hoping it is still there...
Such a deeply thought provoking post...I doubt they'll have the same package this weekend. We shall see
Well we will find out in a couple of days...I doubt they'll have the same package this weekend. We shall see
A more nonsensical comment you would struggle to come out with. The collapse of Mercedes has nothing to do with a 'lack of talent' from the drivers. The collapse is because of a poor design path and a brain drain of staff to other teams. It is very interesting to watch though and I am really keen to see how Mercedes will (or won't) cope...Had enough of the media giving a free pass to Hamilton and Russell for their own lack of talent contributing to Merc collapse
Put Max or Logan in that Merc and it would podium every raceA more nonsensical comment you would struggle to come out with.

No, it wouldn't. The car has real problems and they need to drop the sidepod design as fast as they can. Budget cap and brain drain means they are probably fucked for the rest of the season...Put Max or Logan in that Merc and it would podium every race
It is possible, that with Max starting way back and LeClerc taking a grid penalty, that both Astons can be on the podium and maybe one of them can win. But that RB is fucking fast so it'll be hard work and I can guarantee that MV is not going to be mid pack for very long...Alonso out-quali's both Russell and Hamilton. Stroll out runs Hamilton lol
Russell looks to be getting on with the carNo, it wouldn't. The car has real problems and they need to drop the sidepod design as fast as they can. Budget cap and brain drain means they are probably fucked for the rest of the season...
Maybe he has. Or maybe he and the car just don't work. We've seen that in other racers. Albon and Gasly in the RB are perfect examples.Russell looks to be getting on with the car
Meanwhile Hamilton says “I can’t connect with this car”
Or, maybe just maybe your best days are behind you
Just STFU and drive
Oh shut up already about the carMaybe he has. Or maybe he and the car just don't work. We've seen that in other racers. Albon and Gasly in the RB are perfect examples.
Motivation in both Mercedes drivers seems to be impacted but Lewis moreso than George. But not by much I would say. They both hate the car but George is doing a better job of wringing good times out of it.
I was disappointed but not surprised to see the car at this second race of the season with the zero sidepod concept. That needs to be gone, yesterday. Even if it means hacking up the 2020 sidepod design and clagging that back on...
I still count 1 winner and 19 who can’t ‘connect’ with their cars LMFAOI still count Alonso as outrunning both Merc's.
While I agree, they said 10 because it was an infraction on a 5 second penalty being served.Well fuck. I can see a five second penalty for the touch, but ten is kinda ridiculous.
Nope. Was just over 5 secs ahead of Russell, Hamilton was more than 10 secs behind.I still count Alonso as outrunning both Merc's.
If Fernando was in the Merc, he would’ve won the raceI know, but in my eyes, he outran both. And will continue to.
Do you still wear your mom’s cottons?Aston Martin, and Alonso in particular, is very quick.
Ferrari has not impressed. Good in qualifying trim, not so good in race trim.
Mercedes has not impressed. Lousy on qualifying trim, slightly better in race trim.
Red Bull are in another league entirely.
McLaren is dog shite.
IndeedThe FIA need to sort their fucking act out and understand their own rule book...
Of course it constitutes working on the car and rightfully so. The first thing you do if you are removing wheels from your car is whack a jack underneath. Until then it's all cups of coffee, staring at the replacement tyre and bitching about how you aren't as young as you uses to be etc etc. The jack signifies the start of work, whether it's the battered pickup truck or an F1 car.They should call in the FIM to sort things out.
The euros prove once again that they love to stumble over their own laces. Observers are left to marvel at the degree of obfuscation by regulation that goes on. There is a lack of clarity that placing a jack under the car constitutes 'working' on the car.
Yeah, sure, eurotrash assholes.o
Yeah, that bit where 'Chuck' finished 7th and Lewis finished 5th.Chuck in the Ferrari caught & passed Rainbow Sparkle in the Merc like he was on jackstands. Nice footage from the rear view cam on the Merc.
lol now all of a sudden it is all about the carBut I doubt he can beat the RB head-on. Those cars seem to be as dominant as the 2014-2020 Mercedes, perhaps more so.
No, it's about the match of great car and great driver. But the RB cars are so far ahead of the competition even the best driver in the next best car wouldn't beat them or match them every time...lol now all of a sudden it is all about the car
Well yes, just because he is not doing so well doesn't undermine his achievements. Schumacher is a vegetable and Senna is dead so what is your point here?Remember a year or 2 ago, all that talk of Lewis being G.O.A.T.? I howl these days when Russell beats him, which is often lol!
But he did and we are. And Schumi was a huge cheat. And Senna rammed people off the road to get one of his championships. Lewis is a way cleaner champion than either.In my opinion, he is not in the same league as Senna, Schumi.
He lucked into the timing with Merc dominance. Had he been in any other teams' car, we would not be discussing him as possible GOAT.
Hard to say but it seems they parted on good terms but we don't get to know the full story, good or bad. He has always done his own thing and even when he was nailing championship after championship he did his life his way. Maybe it is time for a refocus but no matter where his head is, that car needs work...But really
It sure looks like he started to unravel when he started bringing his woke activism to the track
You just can't bring your best when your best is being shared with other causes
He just booted his long time fluffer, too. What's that all about?
