Just don't know what to expect this season but I'll be watching.
I do like seeing some grand ol marques back in the lime light but no where near as once were.
Aston Martin on the RB's.
Alfa Romeo with Sauber.
I'll be curious how the 2 Ferrrari customer teams go especially Haas, I think they are going to be strong.
Wonder how Torro Rosso go with the Hondas and kiwi Hartley.
Force India should be stronger.
I hope the young guns Max, Sainz really get up there consistently this season.
One wonders how the Williams development squad turn out.
The 2 main suspects we know whats to come, brat will be hard to beat once again.

another ho-hum year?
https://www.wheelsmag.com.au/news/motorsport/1803/Mercedes-crushes-F1-opposition-in-first-pre-season-test

IF YOU were planning to bet against Mercedes-AMG scoring a fifth-straight Formula 1 drivers’ and constructors’ championship in 2018 you might want to reconsider in light of the first week of testing at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain.

Defending champion Lewis Hamilton sailed to the top of the timesheets in the afternoon of the final day, with a 1:19.333 lap.

Hamilton’s time was half a second quicker than anyone else, and nine-tenths of a second quicker than third-fastest Sebastian Vettel’s best time.

You know what Slow, yep the Italian leveage has always been huge in F1, why not imo, they have tipped in the series forever and a day same for some of the other stalwarts still around be it renamed guise's,splits ala MB from Mclaren for eg But I tell you what, if there is one thing that really irritates Euro's, is the american's now owning the show.
The ramblings this time will be real behind closed doors not just with Ferrari.
I've listened to Horner over the last season being very careful in his wording/comments of the new regime and he's being very coy making sure not to rock the boat in the hope they "listen" to whats really important to the Euro's how their product pedigree goes to market and rules in the future.
If they turn any part of the game in any way towards americano style all hell will break out.
Yes dummy spits, be it Ferrari or otherwise.
This game is not a show how americans are used to being entertained, Euros see yanks with no class but all arse.
There will be alot of lobbying going on this season on F1's future.

Great drive by Dan. Red Bull were very lucky with team position when the Safety Car was called, and Ferrari were caught napping. Hamilton had a great radio call - "are there guys behind me with fresher tyres"?

It goes to show that when Mercedes are dominant, they are dominant. When they are not, and the cracks start to show, they look a little like a house of cards.

Neither Raikonnen or Bottas looked happy to be on that podium or the press conference after.

I am sure my neighbours could hear me yelling when Dan took the lead.

Loving it that MB are having difficulties at this stage - I'm sure they will overcome them But yes Pax when it gets pear shaped they have trouble stabilising their situation.
When Ferrari can put them under pressure as shown last 2 races they are not the same.
Shame for Kimi, to stomach pettel grabbing pole by the slimmest margin to then have pettel squeeze him at the start to first corner he would have been fuming, I know I would have.
pettel needs to worry about the others not his own team mate.
Bloody Max once again lol.....

His dive bombs are wonderful to see.

Max had every right to shift left defending his line But he also would have seen DR coming up fast behind him as well.
Defending the line and corner entry.
IMO DR knowing how Max reacts/behaves for sometime I feel should have backed off some in the thought I'll get him next time - get closer gaining earlier slip stream so as in getting by earlier than late down the straight.
Either way IT could have been avoided.

Elks
30th April 2018, 01:16 PM
Crazy race. Who was at fault do you think?

1/4 Danny Ric
1/4 Max Versmashem
2/4 the team

After 40+ laps of max being an obstructionist pratt, including max deliberately steering into him, I understand why Dan had a bit of the red mist going. I was watching on TV and I wanted to punt Max into a wall.

The team should have been more firm with Max. Dan was genuinely quicker and while a long shot, he had chance at a podium so the team should have ordered Max to let him pass and stop holding him up for the sake if the team. Max is notorious for his reckless blocking, Dan famous for his last minute dives. In the end that crash was inevitable. Watching Adrian Newy drop his headphones and walk off. All I could think was "Seriously!, what did you think was going to happen".

HSE2
30th April 2018, 02:37 PM
This is one of those situations where enough has already transpired in the race for this outcome to be predictable.

The crash is Dan's fault. The other contact was Max's fault and the person most at fault is Honer.

The instruction should have been zero contact zero risk.

FTe217
30th April 2018, 03:15 PM
No matter what Horner should have could have done/said it is still his drivers fault IMO full stop and more so DR.
I have watched 2 guys as good and better than these 2 at their peak in Slows fav team Williams.
Piquet Mansell - now even these 2 could be and more so loose cannons than Max and recall many of their stoushs whilst 1 and 2 on the track not for 4th as this was and Dan's mist/ego even got the better of him this time.
Sure, I don't blame him having a go but not then, he fucked up this time.

Elks
30th April 2018, 04:56 PM
except Versmashem has history.

He's had this with Valetri, Kimi, Lewis, Dan, Fernando, and i'm sure others. It would be like being hit by Tander or getting a bump and run by Whincup, yes you can blame the other party but there is a constant there and in this case it's Max. He's now 3 years into the big time and paid millions. He should know better.

FTe217
30th April 2018, 08:17 PM

There used to be a DeCrashceris - a Mansell was a complete right off for yonks, crashs into others and his own countless brain fades,screwed other drivers up.
There are others like Max that never end knowing better BUT the passing driver needs to always be aware aware aware aware and DR should know better than them all at present.

The problem isn’t what happened on track, it’s what came next.

Horner can’t then turn around and say, these two need to front 800 people and apologise.

That is his purview.

It was a situation building all race. Only those sitting outside the situation can have that perspective. The drivers, they need to see the footage to see what they have done.

The teams have those replays and should have made it crystal clear to both they were crossing the line.

Now as it turns out Horner is claiming they were warned so if so, that’s fair enough.

There is no good as team managers sitting back hoping for the best. Be proactive and manage. If they don’t play ball, sack them.

4th May 2018, 08:32 PM

It’s an interesting one. Those who are siding with Max being at fault are looking at what he has achieved thus far with crashes. On balance Max pushes to far and with his team mate he shouldn’t have been moving like he was but that’s called racing and that’s what they were allowed to do.

I think there needed to be a calming voice in their ear to remind them they were already on the limit. It’s a team sport so act like a team.

While Max did move, I don’t believe it was enough to cause what happened here unless he brake checked Dan.

You just can’t drive up the arse of someone and start pointing fingers.

FTe217
6th May 2018, 12:04 AM
Possibly that may explain Horners reaction upon the incident just dropping his muffs walking off, maybe he had warned them a few times or at least once, who knows.
Team mates are always the worst to compete against.
Max, sure could have opened the door more but also he doesn't Have to, not unless he's really told as so by Horner but he keeps saying we encourage them racing but yeryer do it nicely.
Well, Max isn't nice he's aggressive.
Once that helmut is on everyone is his enemy for the record stands.
Hence why I keep saying, DR knows who's he's dealing with, he needs to be smarter for he has to be.

FERRARI are at the centre of a Monaco “cheat” storm.

Rival teams believe the Italian outfit may have an illegal power boost system on their cars.



The sport’s governing body, the FIA, has ordered Ferrari to fit additional computer hardware for the Monaco Grand Prix to prevent any illegal use of F1’s Energy Recovery System



Rub them out.

HSE2
28th May 2018, 10:49 AM
What they said on the telecast.

Seems like an employee has left Ferrari and moved to another team.

That team has asked the sport to look at what Ferrari was doing.

The way they harvest energy is different to anyone else so the programming didn’t make sense. Thevsport has their own engine program expert so they didn’t need to consult with anyone else.

After more discussion with Ferrari, a call was made to change the software.

This implies that up till now they were doing something they shouldn’t have been and the fact nothing is being done was presented as a sweet heart deal.


Now it’s not cheating, it’s just F1 pushing the intention of the rules to breaking point.

I think you're right. They love Max, but he is too much of a hot head due to his youth, and his 'win it or bin it' attitude isn't winning him any favours. Bet the RB employees would rather work for Dan (who has won two races off his own back) than Max, whose crew seems to be continually re-building his car. Kvyat didn't have this many lives...

I hope he stays where he is, and gets paid properly for it. Christian Horner really likes him, and that shows.

I feel for Williams at the moment though. Stroll is as useless as a chocolate teapot, and I haven't heard boo from the Russian. Should they have gone with Kubica (my heart says yes). If it wasn't for Stroll and the Russian's money, I wonder if Massa would have been convinced to stay, and Kubica in the other seat?

FTe217
4th June 2018, 11:43 PM
I think the Max situation has them finally seeing that DR is their true no1 but its taken them a long time to come around that myself as the driver would remind CH regards a contract upgrade..but still consider another option as well.
In saying that at a later time I still can see Max becoming A driver.

Interesting bratt is holding out MB re signing.
Kimi has thrown out to the press he's keen for a contract extension.

Poor Williams alright, they have given in to whoever comes around with some much needed dollars.
They are driving their brand down down.....
They need to get a package working and entice a class driver to test it and if its competitive give him what he wants.
Running MB engines is great But they will never be an equal as per the supplier.

I did see some mention of this like a red herring quote somewhere a while ago.
Never considered the thought but what an interesting outcome considering the lack of form since the Mac period.
I'm surprised but I'm also picturing RB's chassis/development/Engineering a step above what Mac has been the last years.
Look at the persistence on RB getting where they are to date - last 3yrs you have seen the improvement whereas Mac, still not much better having discarded Honda.
I can't believe Honda ends up like Toyota, fizzles out, knowing their motor cycling division philosophy I just can't see Honda in F1 keep making up the numbers for ever.
This move by RB wouldn't have been taken lightly as we know, they see it for sure, I'm super keen seeing this develop but feck me it could even hurt my Ferrari's in the future for I recall the Williams/Mac winning era's.

DK, I guess DR will bail out right for he'll judge the recent past, he maybe right or he may end up paying for it.

Just seeing him makes me sik lol......


I hear you he's a complete pratt, I used to think that I couldn't support #44 but Vettel is worse. Never forget Multi 21. It's a least worst situation. If it can't be Danny Ric then I want it to be Bottas or Kimi to their respective #1's.

I do have the feeling that Verstacken would be exactly the same as Lewis or Vettel, given the chance he would stab his team mate in the heart, then go and get a sandwich.

Win at all cost was also a characteristic of the other greats, Schumacher, Senna, Prost,

and there in lies the big question, Greats !? Legends even now that they were but I can't put that guy next to them.
I luv Kimi, wish he could out drive pettel but he is a good steerer, I like bloke who have proved themselves in other machnery, bratt hasn't been in any questionable team but the no1 at the time.
Look at the early careers of those 3 and even went out on the limb through their careers and drove whatever they had under their butts as hard as possible.

I wouldn’t put foul play past Ferrari, they’re a bunch of ****s. People only calling Lewis a sore loser cos he wasn’t liked to start with but I assure you if he didn’t have such a reputation everyone would have agreed with him. Before this race I wasn’t too much of a fan of his but I honestly want him to win now just to piss off those fuckwits at Ferrari.

lol.......thats for sure David_F, the Red boys heavys have been devious over the years just the same as MB or previously McLaren under Dennis days. Its an ugly state of affairs this game due to the dollars involved and the grand standing etc
Terrible political leveraging incl FIA over the years, always has been sadly but this wasn't political just a random stupid comment made by the spoilt kid in the heat of the moment, how dare someone spoil his party at home.
The entitled one.
Hello an opponent was on the inside deep into the corner to the point of locking up, he broke very late himself, he could have backed off, he had a choice, not cut in for he stayed wide.
As if any racer such as Kimi would sacrifice his car no matter the branding.
He would have yeilded 1 place and avoid damage, pretty simple but ego got in the way of making the smart %'s decision imo.
