Yup. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Lewis is mean to me Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Hate to say I told ya so, but Lewis did "chum" him out as Ferrari bait.

Can't help but think that were the roles reversed, Hamster would have thrown a pass on him and got on with it.

As it sits, Britney's dissatisfaction with Merc is going postal. Verstappen in the seat next year becomes more likely..

Will see Hamilton has not signed yet. As for Verstappen really not impressed with his race. The divebomb was not pretty well done by Ericsson to avoid that just wish it would been Maldonado Verstappen encountered or somebody that really committed to the corner. Verstappen just seem to be another guy that get hyped because of being the youngest kid on the block. Not sure he is the best option for Mercedes.

 

Maldonado is a total mystery I must say. Not sure why he never learns. I mean he can race good and all but then he make the easiest of misstakes. He was unlucky with button taking him out that was buttons fault though Maldonado seem to be getting blame just due to his history lol.

 

Red Bull what are they doing? They can´t blame Renault because they can´t build gearboxes...

So. I'm thinking Hamilton/Verstappen as the Merc lineup for '16.

Too young , he still needs a year or two.

For some reason I thought Hammer had signed finally. Pretty relaxed for a guy with no contract. Alonso should perhaps, fire FatFlav and get Lew to do the talking for him;)

 

Yes it's all the engine manu's fault.:rolleyes: That song is going to get played out to death. If Renault takes over TR and makes a go of it RB and the gang will be eating major crow,

 

Even with the Mac, I'm starting to wonder how much blame Honda really has to take. With the car ratcheting around like that who knows what stresses it's putting on the engine gearbox combo.

 

Maldo and Grosjean both refuse to mature as drivers. Moments of coherence followed by complete brain fade. I have very little hope of that ever changing.

 

Verstappen has a good head for the race overall. The immaturity shows in those suicide passes, but on overall merit he can be a front runner if he is managed properly. A good team could very well do that for him. It would make a great pairing with a strong number one driver. As long as the respective team does not buy into the "youngest WDC ever" nonsense. Lew made his fair share of bonehead maneuvers in the early days, and managed to come along.

Seems mac chassis is good, both Button and Alonso are all praise for it and pretty confident that they can close the gap faster.

post #1761 of 1770

They both know how to play the political games to get favours from their team ;).

 

They are 2 seconds off pace and they are super happy? Really?

post #1762 of 1770

IMO I don't think both Button and Alonso would get another title..

Really? Did you look at that thing ratcheting around in qualifying. That chassis has all the panache of a deck chair unfolding.

You have to wonder about that. We're ecstatic and will be challenging Merc soon. Uh guys, reality check here, look at your stats for the year. That thing with Merc printed on it was actually a Lotus you were fighting with.

 

Who knows, maybe Ronbo has some insider at the SCUD or Merc he can buy tech from.  .....again:eek:

Haha that would be a proper comedy... Alonso returns to McLaren to another spygate controversy.

Compared to winter testing 2 seconds gap in 3 races , I think they have done good job.

Suicide passes ? I didn't see any of those, just racing done properly.

Perez was thrown out of mac for doing same :D

I'm not entirely convinced the demon maneuvers were all entirely intentional. As opposed to "Gee these things brake hard, oops, better make this one stick":)

 

The future as they say, will be telling.

So funny

 

post #1770 of 1770

I have to like Vettels expressions through that interview. "Somebody pass the popcorn while I watch Lew wind Britney up till he pops an artery"

 

Bring on Bahrain!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

 

....and in other news that's not news.

Bernie, did it ever occur to you that you are not the man to be managing the sport in this modernd day and age. Take Ronbo with you and peez off to some desert island before the last of your brain cells mutiny and you start talking about putting shark pools on each track.
