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...
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. 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.
