  1. Past hour
  2. That would throw the whole cost cap out of the picture. Scrapping the Token system will make teams senselessly spend on just about anything under the sky. Teams like McLaren are requesting the cost cap to stay because it will help equalize the field to some point. I was actually talking about more on the lines of giving Renault and Ferrari some leeway to help correct the unjust situation they have landed in.
  3. I'm not sure where you have been for a decade Brad.. But just look at this year for example.. Ferrari doesn't have its s##t together, at all! And Maybe its not the drivers fault..
  4. Today
  5. Will it happen despite some noise about this particular event could be cancelled? Is Ferrari facing Annus horribilis, or will turn this into Annus mirabilis? Stay tune.
  6. Even BETTER wisdom WOULD B 2 NOT crash in2 UR team mate, endin BOTH races
  7. How Brundle can without hesitation declare to viewers around the globe that "both Ferrari's are fighting for the same piece of real estate", trying desperately to dilute individual responsibilities into a racing accident. The other one on the mike, talking about LeClerk giving Vettel slight side-nudge... (which ended with DNF). Really repulsive.
  8. I'm talking Alonso during Ferrari stint, when Kimi cud'nt even drive the car... I don't know where u've been the last few years, but that FIA (Ferrari International Assistance) is just plain silly, as proven by everything that went against Ferrari the last decade

    Hey, Now that u've mentioned it... Let's vouch for the guy to stay at the helm of Ferrari and not get sacked.... poetic justice

    Ferrari

    Neither did Hamilton the previous race. Quite a rookie mistake with Albon last race. Also, the car is so dominant and easy to drive, it hides mistakes.... Hamilton almost crashed heavily with his flying lap, he as much admitted it....... Merc drivers don't have to over-compensate.. Consider facts before you post things like this...

    @KoolMonkey I think travesty of this is, that most of claimants (not you) are assuming, that Vettel was alwyas in control to prevent, or be able to accept responsibility for the way things turn out. I have my technical doubts over validity of such assumptions. There is cause end effect relationship here, and Vettel might be many things to many people, but he is is not a fool. It's just some people on sidelines - earning living by spouting nonsense - do find easier to point out finger, than dig deeper. Ferrari really has never defended this driver against public angst and incendiary language as they seems to do now for LeClerc. I see this as result of rotating management at the top between those who shook hand with Vettel in 2014 and current crowd. Vettel never was during his tenure "a Ferrari man", regardless how hard he tried, and now he pays for it on more, than just on one level. His legacy is in stake as well.

    I am hoping race Stewards will be informed (preferably soon) it is racing they are hired to watch and judge, and not Idol popularity contest.

    So it was Vettel's fault that Leclerc hit and took him out? Even Brundle without bothering to check the facts, first blamed Vettel during the Sky broadcast. Then ate some humble pie and apologized to Vettel that he'd gotten the cars wrong. But he instinctively blamed Vettel first. That's how many F1 fans see it, not just Vettel fans. If you think Vettel's win at Montreal was worthy of being stripped, then we're never going to agree on anything. Had it been any other driver that day, that win would have stood. There is no doubt Vettel over the past few years has had spins, contacts, crashes and failed dives etc. But it's to the point now that even when he doesn't do anything wrong, he's blamed. That isn't bias, it's stating what seems to be pretty clear at this point. Sky hate Vettel. Brundle has been putting the boot into him for years. The FIA stewards don't like Vettel and he's copped far too many penalties whereas Hamilton and Verstappen have had several where it was deemed a "racing incident". Why did Leclerc not get a penalty? I don't care if his car pulled out of the race a few laps later. Grosjean has copped dozens of well deserved penalties over the years for causing huge first lap incidents. Yet Leclerc got nothing. Switch Vettel and Leclerc and it would be hysteria, and 101% Vettel would have copped a penalty. The Italian media love to smash Vettel. Yet Ferrari is being run by Waldo. Ferrari are a shambles. The one thing that was a surprise is Wolff standing up for Vettel. And it was nice to see Marko and Horner also backing him too.

    Honestly, things have been looking good for them for quite sometime now, they were consistently outperforming Renault last year with the same power. Its fair to say that they will up their game with a more stable PU. And the driver line up is going to provide a lot of entertainment in 2021.. Ricciardo + Lando + Seidl + Mclaren + Mercedes ,,,, sounds like a good combo to me in more then one way 😉

  16. Yesterday
  17. Going back? 'Going back' wouldn't really matter with the new rules coming into effect from 2022, coz everyone starts on the same level. And that is what Renault are aiming for. Hope they are able to make an impression in what is a new era for F1. Unfortunately, Merc and Honda are still going to hold an advantage over Ferrari and Renault PU's By the look of it, they have already given up on 2021. Its funny how the educated and experienced race stewards deemed them legal,,,, but back then FIA (Ferrari International Assistance) helped get em banned.
  18. vetttel didnt drive like he was 4 *wdc
  19. i understand you are vettel fans. But no. there is nothing against vettel. i like vettel but he has made a lot of mistakes lately and charles actually accepted his mistake this race.

    Like Ron Dennis said (in the previous V8 era ). Need 2 B a works team to Succeed in F1. With Ron, Mclaren WERE the unofficial works Mercedes team, until Mercedes bought Brawn GP - because Ron would NOT sell out. Since then Ron HAS sold out. Zak is in NOW control and the Bahreinian`s R payin the guys in Wokin. The guy`s in wokin R doin a GOOD job, so far - so good. Without bein a works team - but it IS still EARLY days with a LONG way to go. Many MORE twists and turns R expected. Mclaren R takin the midfield fight 2 Renault. Whose response IS, cryin 2 FIA - Pink Mercedes is NOT fair - because we did NOT think of doin it !!

    Over the years I made the same observation, that Vettel seems to be judged by a different standard within F1 community. It shouldn't be, but it is so.
  23. And that was that for a red team. I wonder if Mattia sleeps well at all these days. Otherwise - boring is a word I was looking for.

    What a joke Ferrari is. Leclerc is a pr*ck. Vestappen is a saint compared this smug arrogant brat. Had it been Vettel who rammed Leclerc at the start and bashed off his rear wing, everyone from Brundle to the Italian media would be calling for the immediate sacking of Vettel. Not surprisingly, F1 dismissed any investigation into the matter. Of course they would. They only penalise Vettel, never anyone who hits him. I can point to many incidents in the past where Vettel has been unfairly punished by the FIA. Why is it that when Vettel is involved it's almost 100% supposedly his fault, but when someone hits him it's a racing incident? F**K this sport, it's a farce. Brad, I'm glad Wolff (who is someone I've never liked) has put the boot into Binotto. He's a clown. Now that Vettel has been given the boot, I hope Binotto stays on actually. Seeing Ferrari suck and implode will be hilarious. The cigarette man Arrivabene was a far better team leader than this schmuck.

    Ferrari

    I hope the end is near for Binotto.. Toto Wolff, for example, said earlier this week that he sympathises with everyone at Ferrari except Mattia Binotto. He didn't want to hear from him anymore. The way he seemingly put Sebastian Vettel aside on the phone didn't make him popular either.
  26. Even better idea would be scrapping the token system. What F1 management in reality has done, instead weak and technically incompetent teams to let fall, as is typical in competitive society, they are now dragging (in re: via regulations) well established teams to the level where failed entities operate. One should not forget there are several teams who do live on a credit card debt, earning nothing much which could lead to prosperity. I think it's just question of time before this house of cards will tip over, regardless how many casino tokens anyone receives. Only FIRE economic-sector will make money (again).
