  • Ferrari still so bloody erratic, but I expect them to resolve reliability probs this winter and be on top early next year. And then it's a bomb ready to explode between Seb and Charles. Congrats to Lewis for a fully deserved sixth title. And congrat…
  • Clewlis lucky in Silverstone with the safety car, but would have probably won anyway. His fastest lap at the last lap was a masterpiece, and done on purpose: he is as usual surgical in destroying his opponents psychologically. The initial duel Hamil…

  • Let's see how Seb's claim will go. He would have deserved the win in Canada and probably the commission just applied fiscally a rule that is objectively too strict, still the rule was there. But for the championship I see anyway little chance for fe…

  • RIP Niki Lauda. Controversial character, but probably the most novel-like life in that babylon of great men that past Formula One is.
  • I hope you're wrong too, Oz. he is the only driver, with max, that really made me enjoy F1 in the last few years!! And he is a WC in my opinion, and deserves to have a real chance.
  • In Barcelona Lewis re-established the hierarchies. Still he has to be careful, with this Bottas he can't afford a crazy summer as he had in 2016. Darkest night for Ferrari, with still the sensation that the boy would be faster than Seb if let free t…

  • Will Bottast be able to make a Rosberg 2016? This is the key of the season.... Second key: will Ferrari win its first race with Leclerc? McLaren looks extremely fast on the single lap, if they find the pace they may have their best season in years..…

  • Hamilton worried, Ferrari appears quicker than Merc. let's see. Can't wait for Melbourne now, this is one of the most interesting pre-seasons with all the changes highlighted by Lease above. Do not expect anythiong much from Kubica unfortunately. Bu…

  • Happy birthday Michael Schumacher
  • And a very happy 2019. We are managing to keep this forum alive. Incredible considering that we are approaching the 14th season without Minardi.........
  • Probably Hulkenberg or Magnussen wouldn't have fucked it up that way. Ocon has been extremely nervous since the summer, when he understood no good seat for 2019 was available for him.
  • And Kimi finally got his, day, after a faby drive over a faby Max. Really really happy for him. This makes up for Barcelona 2016 (where on Barcelona straight he did not manage to attack Max for several times on newer tyres) and for Monza 2018 where …
  • Vettel is now officially the new Maldonado...... Your theory about Ferrari and second sensor is interesting, Lease. let's see what comes after. I always wantered too how is it possible that in 3 years Renault and Honda could not get close to Mercede…
  • Seb has really only got himself to blame if he loses this championship. See Monza. Plus the team does not really help him. See the ridiculous strategy for him in Singapore and for Kimi in Monza. And poor Kimi for the third time lost a race he could …
  • So Kimi on pole at Monza, with Seb second. See what happens. If Seb wins he will become a serious contender for the title. As at today I still think Lewis is the fav but Ferrari is looking increasingly stronger than Mercedes.....
  • You're a prophet, Lease....... :-)
  • For sure Daniel is not an idiot and if he did it there must be a reason. Apart of course from the jump into the darkness RBR are doing with Honda and from the obvious fact Horner and Dr. Marko privilege Max and the Vettel-Ricciardo story is going to…
  • Was probably just a moment of fury in the agonistic trance, Oz, he then apologized......Kimi has never played these games in his life and will not certainly start now.....
  • Oh oh, this story of the woman who denounced Kimi to the Police in Canada for harassment may become sort of serious......let's see the developments.......
  • In my life, in 35 seasons, I watched about 580 Grand Prix. But I remember no more than 2 or 3 of them, mainly in the M$ era, equally or more boring than the Monaco GP of last Sunday.
    in 2018 Season Comment by manlio27 May 2018
  • Ferrari in general very fragile at the moment. And if Barcelona showed the real Mercedes, there is no real hope for the championship to end differently from last year.....
    in 2018 Season Comment by manlio27 May 2018
  • And what about poor Kimi, sacrificed once again by TOIT for absolutely nothing? You think Seb will want Ricciardo at TOIT? Rubens Barrichello announced to have won a battle with a neck cancer. Fingers crossed for him.
  • No, not an inspiring start at all..... Great Fernando, although a bit helped by VSC. Bets are open on when we are going to see Kubica replacing Sirotkin......
  • With the difference that Renault livery is spectacular, this is a s..t
    in 2018 Cars Comment by manlio27 March 2018
  • Let's see, let's see. I also think MB will dominate but it's always an interesting week for me the week preceeding the season opener!! Roll on Sunday evening!
  • I was basically inserting there two categories, Lease: 1) those who had the talent but their careers were cut short (Bellof, Kubica) and those who were close to get there, even though i know that Laffite, Massa, Alboreto or Reutemann did not have th…
  • Also Collins, Ickx, maybe Regazzoni, maybe Alboreto, maybe bellof among the missed World Champions.....
  • And also RIP Dan Gurney, another great. One of the "missed World Champions", with Moss, Brooks, von Trips, Peterson, Villeneuve, Arnoux, Pironi, Kubica, maybe Reutemann, maybe Laffite, maybe Massa. To show his greatness, just one episode: at Jim Cl…
  • Unfortunately Williams chose Sirotkin. Shame. Would have been a great challenge and a great concentration of media on Williams as well. But money is money......
  • Now Sauber will be sponsored by Alfa Romeo and its Ferrari engines will be branded Alfa Romeo. A very suggestive return, of course....but will TOIT really get a competitor in the same group, draining money from TOIT development?
