Negative . I mean the RB16 had unpredictable behavior and balance issues in Austria 1&2 and Hungary .
And look . Where was he in Hungary ? While he crashed the RB16 only 30 min. for the start ..
Other drivers would break and shiver like a chicken , but he pushed it to P2 !
This means outstanding performance under extreme stress situations !

Ricciardo ? That's an easy one . Great driver for sure , but he couldn't stand it anymore that he ended as the second RB driver , when the right moment came he finally walked for Renaults big money .

OK....can one of our F1 GP fans help me with this??

Help me remember the turn at Monza (was it Turn 6 Curva del Serraglio?) when RIC literally took to the grass at 330 KPH to avoid (I believe it was VET who moved over on his racing line) and passed him....and then got on the radio and said "THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT, LADIES!!!!" Was this in 2014 or so??

What does that have to do with Max's teammate going down?
RB started to favor max and low balled Ric, so he went with what he thought was a good option and got a good chunk of money doing so.

But that still doesn't change the fact he got two poles and max got none as his teammate. RB screwed him most of 2018 otherwise he'd probably have more points than max if it wasn't for the 8 race retirements.

He said that on his overtake on Alonso after taking Hamilton at Hungary when falling behind with one of his signature poor starts.
I remember as the Ferrari was so bone ugly then with it's huge hump behind the nose cone

Go with that all the way though him and Bottas have an extra 150 hp opening the taps up and there's suspicion of a trick radar start system on the Mercs.

good to see some objective comment on recent Vettel..
but i dont agree with Albon though.. he is not bad at all.. but unluckily his car popped up an electric problem right before he was gonna hit the track in FP3..

i dont understand what Kvyat is doing in F1 actually.. even demotivated Gasly is better than him still on stats and reality..

He has this man who's kinda powerful. They call him Vladimir Putin 😂
Albon is performing better than Gasly but fans should understand that Max is a great dinner but he was outperformed in the past. Ricciardo DNFed EIGHT times in the last season, was ignored, got 2 poles and could've done more.
RB aren't Mercedes and RB don't have Lewis winning every week. So they need two steering drivers to win points every Sunday if they want to compete in the constructors championship. Having a lead driver and a weak(er) number 2 will get them nowhere. The other thing is you need 2 drivers' input to develop a car not just tailor a car too suit Max.

Sheesh. What happened to 2020 development from redbull & ferrari. All drivers complaining their cars are difficult to drive and it’s clear from qualifying that they are correct in their complaints.
