    Charles: "I lost the brakes. I braked, the pedal was hard, and it went to the floor. I was lucky to have it at that moment, because if I had had it at another place, it was no good… the problem is that I got scared. I arrived normally in the corner."

    Bad luck for Chuck. 


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Alonso, 2021 Q3 lap. 

    Someone made a video highlighting how much fiddling he had to do in ONE lap for his settings. 

    Also noticed at the end how early he aborted the lap with Gasly's car parked to the side, same lap where Max ignored the yellow flag and got penalized.

    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    His insurance in Monaco must be sky-high. Perhaps revoking his license to drive there might be a good idea.

    Can Nick or anyone explain to me why Schu sonny boy is even there?  Is it just Daddy?  Thanks



    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Was a pretty incredible lap. Max apparently had a DRS glitch on his final go, anyone see his sector times up to that point (ie. Would he have had a crack at beating LEC? ). Good to see Mercedes improving, would be nice to have a three way contest. 


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Leclerc’s power unit upchucks.  Does Ferrari have a serious reliability issue with its upgraded power unit?


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    And Russel puts the Merc in the top 5 in every single race so far and gets the third podium in this season.

    Oh no, Chuck's Luck Sucks!!!  I'm really glad he signed my Pista, he's excellentkiss

    Still some fun stuff today between Russell and Max.  

    Russell is team leader.  Lil' Lewey needs to stops whining, he pulled himself up nicely but bitch, bitch, woe is me --when it's his attitude bringing him down. 


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Russell once again has proven himself as the face of Mercedes today and tomorrow.  He’s an amazing driver but with working DRS the Red Bull advantage was very much evident.  I’m still surprised by the new reliability issue with the Ferrari PU.

    Mick is quite an accomplished racer. His last name helps but he did it on his own merits. Given an equal car, he will be comforatbly ahead of Latifi, Stroll, Tsunoda at least. MIght even be ahead of Albon, K-Mag, I might even put him on par with Ricciardo.

    Ferrari signed him to be their future, after Leclerc and Sainz.

    Russell is the real deal, hence why Mercedes had to promote him. He had the 19th fastest car during his Williams years and dragged it to places it shouldn't be. 

    If he is in the Red Bull this year, he would leave Max far in the rear view mirror. Max didn't manage to pass him on track in a much superior car today.

    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Excellent fight between Russell and Max (he didn't have DRS half the time tough)

    Hamilton got unlucky once again but did an incredible recovery. P19 to P4!...and P5 at the last lap due to overheating.

    Disappointing result for Ferrari.

    Sainz needs to focus ASAP...

    Great result for Russell!  If Hamilton didn’t oversteer and get a flat there would have been two Mercedes at the front battling the Bulls!  Looks like Mercedes is back in the hunt.  Exciting season is unfolding!

    Exactly what he’s doing to Hamilton.


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    Actually not today. Hamilton is the fastest guy on track today. Perez only piped him to the fastest lap by 0.1 second.

    If he didn't get bumped by K-Mag, he could as well fight with the Red Bulls. 

    Seeing how Max can't even get pass Russell on track, I have to imagine he would have trouble passing Hamilton either.

    Max kept his whining image by keep harping to his garage about the DRS failure, he almost had a nervous breakdown about it. Hamilton just hunkered down and do his thing, crawling his way back from 19th to 4th.

    Best driver today would be a tie between Hamilton and Alonso.

    Verstappen needed the points desperately for the Championship - I am glad he got full points ! Kudos also to Sergio for being a wingman in a season where it will be between LeC and Max

    He also got a black and white for track limits. Anyway, RB, Ferrari and MB cars are way faster than the rest so, it wasn’t overly difficult passing the back markers IMHO, but was a good drive from him none the less. Russell was 32 seconds behind Max, and Ham almost a minute.

    Both Russel and Hamilton had to go into engine preservation mode the last couple of laps not able to use full throttle.  Hamilton was nearly a minute behind after his puncture and was in last place on track after pitting, doing without benefit of safety cars was awesome.  Finishing gap is a little misleading.

    To be fair Russel out qualified Hamilton, and during the fast stint on soft tires Russell was on a more comfortable place behind the RB and did not have to push like Hamilton who had to catch Borras and Sainz, so Hamilton being faster on a few laps on that soft stint at the end of the race doesn't say much to how fast Russell could have been if he pushed it instead of managing the gap he had. And Russell has clearly been the faster overall driver of the two this season so far.


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    When HAM reached 4th place, a few laps before the finish he was about 25 sec behind the leading car. He started from the back of the grid with a gap of about 55 sec. Pretty impressive with a car that is better but still not at par with the F or the RB.

    Seriously, I know spanish people are still salty about Alonso/Hamilton in late 00's but you can't deny Hamilton has been fast. And yesterday he did and amazing recovery from P19 to P4! Unfortunately he had bad luck again and he was forced to cool down the car and let Sainz go by.

     

     

     


    Re: [2022] Formula 1

    I was impressed with Ocon and Bottas too.  But so sorry for CHUCK, he's so fast and sweet he deserved it,  but then again Max blew up in. 2 races earlier and had DRS problems today-no wonder he was pissed.
