It’s a business. Merc needs a good enough driver. Not a driver to challenge an almost guaranteed winner.

I would really like to see Russell in a Merc though. Poor guy’s talent is being wasted.

and im not sure mode change ban can change this too much cause in the end there ll be tire preserving again.. i believe teams can come up with a combo map setting different power levels on higher revs etc but these tires will stay...
Mate . Rosberg had at least the b@lls to play with Ham's b@lls .
BOT has not the necessary b@lls to become HAM's nightmare-trauma ..

That's why Rosberg said this week : Bottas should make a big barbeque with big fresh steaks under HAM's sleeping room window !
And Rosberg is 100% right on this one !

i believe Hamilton - Bottas pair is like Hakkinen and Couldhart.. its obvious that who is better and just like David back in the days all the stars should be aligned for him to outperform..

PS: i cant even stand to listen Rosberg..

BOT is certainly not a weak viking and I don't believe HAM has the edge on him,BOT PU turned down for him not to challenge to make tyres last! come on only dreamer believes otherwise haha.

His major sponsorships are all Dutch. And tell me, would the Orange army turn up if he claimed to be Belgian? Come on.
Mate . You just said it . All his sponsorships are all Dutch . That's what I said ,more than once ..
And that's why MAX drives under the Dutch flag and not the Belgian flag .
It's all about financial speculation , while his ID and driver license is Belgian .
MAX saw his first light in Hasselt . Born in Hasselt 30 september 1997 in Belgium . Hasselt is 100% Limburg in Belgium .
I agree my friend . This discussion is really silly .

Over here we say : Rosberg has hair on his teeth !
Rosberg showed us at least a great fight with HAM .HAM lost that one !
BOT is turned down by Wolff-man from behind the pitwall .. To make him slower !
Rosberg would tell that with his big mouth in the media . But BOT's lips are sealed by rules in his new contract !
Smart move from Wolff*man ...

It's an entertainment business. Russell would be great, give him a shot. Merc is all but guaranteed constructors' championship through '21. Why not up the interest and viewership with teammate vs. teammate racing? As a brand/marketing exercise, how is this not preferable? My 12 year old can't be the only one finding it unwatchable. HAM vs. BOT does more for Merc than (hypothetically) HAM vs. VER, ALO, etc.? Can't be.

'21 will be 5 years of watching Hamilton unchallenged by the same teammate. I mean, come on...

This is the most popular F1 YouTube video involving "Hamilton." You can probably guess the 2nd most popular, it's not him toying with Bottas just out of DRS range race after race.

Looks like the Belgian Police finally found a helicopter with a heat seeking cam !
They found a way to pull some money ( 350 Euro*fine ) from people around the track in the Francorchamps forests .
They just watched the QF session from a distance in the forest . With masks on !
F* the Belgian Police !

While I watched the "Tour The France" , with "Tens of Thousands of peoples "ALONG THE ROADS" to watch the race !?!?
Honestly ...I'm having a hard time ! To live in a world of dishonesty !!!

wait 20 years for hearing a confession from Rosberg why he retired.. cause he had to perform 130% to be champ despite Lewis had more troubles with his car than him.. 20 years a bit long yeah..
