No doubt and Toto was pretty proud of it, “Bring on the heat”

Yes mate , and Toto said : Hope it will be even hotter in Belgium in his interview with Sky.. He loves rubbing it in with Horner (and vice-versa!)

Merc already had tires issues in Silverstone 1 . And they didn't fixed it in Silverstone 2 .
And now suddenly it is fixed ...Strange !

Of course the best drivers wind up in the best cars, that's part of the game. Just ask Alonso

Let's see where Max winds up in 10 years, he certainly has the raw talent.

In case you boys missed it Seb joined Hamilton in the 3000 career points club today. I understand others will be in this club if points distribution was consistent through the years but for this generation of drivers, they are the only ones with 3000 points and more.

mate even if Merc' d do nothing, this track was putting less energy on tires and probably grip levels are a bit different as well.. but im sure right after that tire incidents and problems at least 5-10 people already started to bring ideas to figure out how to fix it.. and didnt see a comparison but i believe Merc's ran with higher brake cooling package just take the heat from tires a bit more probably.. but above all Merc' is still works hard the most among teams mate seen another example yesterday..

So BOT falls 2 points adrift of Max and has said he has little chance for the championship because of another fluffed start, that's a laugh for sure. Like the vikings of before I spoke of he may just like an easy kill or push over battle where he holds all the cards or gives up if not! No wonder Merc likes a submissive no. 2.

You guys are forgetting that they used C1,C2,C3 in Spain while they used C2, C3,C4 in F1 70 and British GP. There problems didn't go away, they used harder compounds.

ahaha no no mate you got it wrong cause i ve made the sentence with some missing words..
im not gonna take some parts from a car that is in 1 piece.. lets say that there is a crash and car is damaged.. i ll just take some carbon pieces from a that lets say diffuser.. its useless already for the team but not for me.. after carbon tears apart they wont glue it back again anyway..
unless you want some pieces from RB16..

that is true as we talked earlier.. and its not the very same conditions since track was different as well.. but in the last weekends soft tires was this weekends mediums.. but Merc' did look a bit better this weekend.. there were some blisters on the rear though even if it wasnt that bad..

and did you watch the vid on Vettel and his engineer? it seems it was about few laps earlier talk during the race.. yes its a fail for Ferrari telling to push for 3 laps and after those laps to say we ll go until the end with these tires...

Maybe Max like Lecrash. If it's true then it's only because VER has got Lecrash's number. He's not a threat. He's not competition. Not until 2022 and maybe then he will keep liking him 😂


Now this graph is not OK. We had 3 teams fighting last year. This year we have 3 drivers.
