    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    I am loving it, no one is abusing track limits now 

    Max start whining about others causing red flags again.

    F2 races was again exciting to watch. But man they are so aggressive with their moves, it's like having 20 Maxes racing each other, all expecting they have the right of way and the other cars needed to yield.

    Eventually they will all learn they can't win a race in one corner, but they can surely lose it.

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    What a fun race to watch to the end.

    Exciting races when both Max and Lewis are not in it. The battle between Gasly, Leclerc and Norris is epic. The young guns, future of F1.

    Blow out tire for Max when leading? Bottas had that, join the club Max. Race not over until the fat lady sings. Same can be said with Hamilton, sitting second when the race restarts, shit can happen and does.

    Those Red Bulls are quick! Fastest car on grid for sure. They are the car to beat this year. Mercedes probably figured that bit out really early as Hamilton didn't have much trouble following Perez for most of the race, in years before they can't run well in dirty air following another car.

    Perez drove a textbook "Perez' race, no drama no nothing, just steady Eddie. WIth the fastest car he deserves the win. For some reason I think Red Bull screwed his pitstop on purpose just so he doesn't over cut Max coming back out. Good thing he still won. Karma. 

    What the hell is Bottas doing in the back of the field? Just like in Monza, he SHOULDN'T be there in the first place.

    Vettel seems to be getting the hang of the new ride, perhaps he could established himself to be the No1 at Aston over the boss's son.

    Onto Paul Ricard next, let's see if the Red Bulls are still the fastest car without a bendy wing.

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    Vettel has continued to surprise following his performance at Monaco a couple of weeks ago.  One, like many, had written Vettel off after that disastrous season last year at Ferrari.  He’s showing a quiet confidence now that was never seen before.  
     

    Mercedes has met it match with Red Bull.  This has the makings of one of the best seasons in memory.  


    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    It’s a pity what happened to MV and to LH, Max was leading easily and Lewis had the re-start of the century but obviously the racing gods want us to have the best season for years!

    VB should quit/ resign, he‘s so overrated and that’s mire thsn obvious.

    Looking forward how the next races will evolve and hoe Lewis and Merc will strike back.


    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    LH screwed up big time. He still did a great race despite having a clearly inferior car than RB.

    For some reason, he clicked the "brake magic" button when shiftting up at the start so the brake bias and regen settings were wrong.

    Mazepin has now officially finished ahead of three drivers this year: Litifi, Schumacher, and Hamilton.indecision


    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    So Mazepin has now moved to 2nd place on the Billionaires' Boys' Club ranking list, behind Stroll and ahead of Latifi for finishing ahead of Hamilton in a F1 race.

    I sure hope Michael Schumacher had a little smile when his son finished ahead of Hamilton.

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    NOT related to 2021 season.... I was sorting through some old files and slides recently, and some of them related to the first F1 race I ever saw; 1976 Canadian GP.   What struck me in looking at the entrants, was the rarity of young drivers compared to today.  Look at these ages: 

    Vittorio Brambilla 38
    Mario Andretti  36
    Clay Regazzzoni  36
    Carlos Reutemann  33
    Ronnie Peterson 32
    Jacques Lafitte  32
    Patrick Depailler 31
    Jacky Ickx  31
    Carlos Pace  31
    JP Jarier  30
    Patrick Watson 30
    Brett Lunger  30
    Jochen Mass  29
    Alan Jones  29
    Emerson Fittipaldi 29
    James Hunt 28
    Niki Lauda  27
    Tom Pryce  27
    Jody Scheckter  26

    And for fun, my shot of the six wheeled Tyrell driven by Depailler....

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    It is and it isn't.

    Modern days there are more feeder racing series to get kids ready for the big show. Lance Fucking Stroll would be a better driver than half if not more on your list. He is just that much more seasoned. And he isn't even close to mid field in the current F1 season on skill/talent level. Competiton love lis also lowered back then.

    But then again modern feeder racing series have exploded in cost so a lot of kids are already out of reach just to reach the try out stage. 

    They can do some karting, show promises, but then stopped in their track at best at the F4 level. They just simply can't afford to go farther than that.

    Your description sounds like a return to the days a century ago when auto racing was dominated by rich playboys.

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    Look no farther than Stroll, Latifi and Mazepin. Do they deserve their seats on the grid if their daddy didn't drop a major chunk of change on the teams?

    I am not the only one saying this. Lewis already said the same thing. It's like a million dollars to run a season of F2, about half a million or so for a season of F3. quarter of a million for F4. That's about 2 million dollars minimum to go from  karting up to F1 if they are lucky and doesn't have to repeat a level.

    Our own driving academy is trying to develop drivers too, from karting up. The instructors are all in their 20s, but their racing career are pretty much stopped on the track atm as getting to the next level up requires a major outlay of cash and the care in need of many sponsors.

    Re: [2021] Formula 1

    Sad news. I thought that the overall covid situation will allow Abu Dhabi to have spectators for the last race, well, no, only frontline heros will be allowed. Good thing though, still l thought to make a little trip in December…perhaps, l might just visit expo 2020 in dubai…

    Yes this is the sad reality in this sport, but on the other side the expenses got so immense that some team dont have a choice if they want to survive... that is a spiral, this sport is burning money like no other. But F1 is also a business and one need to make sure that the business makes more than it spends... Lets see what the budget cap will being, IMO I dont think much.... at least not as they plan to do it. I personally just want great racing on the limit. Smiley
