  1. Not just him, there are a lot of drivers who couldn't manage without the brilliance of Newey.
  2. Yeah.. for sure.. He wore his heart on his sleeve, so that was seb.. N I particularly loved this... ๐Ÿ˜
  3. The man the legend! You will be missed Seb ๐Ÿงก
  4. 2022 has been good
  5. Power rankings update.
  6. PU Usage... Mercedes seems strong. Although they don't have out right pace, they seem really good reliability. In 2022, F1 teams will be allowed to use an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), Turbo Charger (TC), Motor Generator Unit - Heat (MGU-H) and Motor Generator Unit - Kinetic (MGU-K) three times. The Energy Store (ES) and Control Electronics (CE) may only be used twice without penalty. The Engine Exhaust system (EX) is the only part that can be used eight times.
  7. And this just popped up on the internet ๐Ÿ˜›
  8. Had to put this here.. ๐Ÿคฃ
  9. If that IS true, then we have Ferrari domination coming in for 4 straight years by the look of it...
  10. I disagree with this assessment. 2022 Has made following other cars easier, and there is DRS available with everyone to make overtaking easier if you are following the car in front closely.
  11. ๐Ÿ™‚๐ŸคŸ๐ŸคŸ๐ŸคŸ๐ŸคŸ๐ŸคŸ Thats cool
  12. Leaving the brake magic on in Baku? Didn't that cost him his championship?
  13. Fair enough. Change is constant. And a change for the better is always appreciated.
  14. ๐Ÿค” So after 2013 all the Vettel fans were cheering for him in the after math of the Multi-21 Saga... stating that nice guys do not win championships. And come to think of it, Vettel did what he had to do, he was faster in that race in malaysia, period. He could have played along with Multi21 to give back something to the team and his team mate (Like Lando selflessly did in Monza 2021), but in the moment he chose not to, and rest is history. When time came to assess Max's aggressive style of driving a few years later, these fans who supported Vettle for the Multi21 saga, seemed to have had forgotten what they earlier stood for. Truth just didn't settle well when the harsh realty of hard racing was served back by Max, Not just to Vettle, but to a lot of other drivers.. Unfortunately everything here on this forum is about Vettle these days, so that's that. The whole of F1 (NOT JUST 1 DRIVER) had to adjust to how good Max was under breaking, and came up with the rule that outlawed his breaking style. and so came The Max Rule . And No, what max was doing was not all correct with unsafe driving while breaking, but up until that point no one was bold enough to defend that Hard. I was personally not a fan of Senna's insensible dives that were potentially hazardous, but at this level, THIS is what these guys do - They put everything on line, including their own life, to try to win. Now when I read Senna's words, I realize, its not about wanting to do a risky overtake, its about not staying behind someone, and wanting to risk all to get there. Max has a - take no prisoners - approach to his racing, I don't think he needs anyones 'forgiveness', just like Vettle didn't need to offer explanation / Apologies for what he did in Malaysia 2013.
  15. Its not 'unjustified' just because it happened to Vettel. Its called motor-racing.
  16. Toto seemed more satisfied with the outcome as compared to Christian .. what does that say?
  17. I would bet on Gasly and Lando if i could.
  18. Alpine seems in doldrums. Seems like another story of a manufacturer moving from regular turbo to split and facing reliability issues while other 3 manufacturers have made progress on their respective power units. McLaren Ferrari and AM seem to be having a good preparation for the coming year. Redbull and Merc look poised to bring in thier A game if the reports are true.
  19. F1 is technically advanced as compared to other racing series,,, yes. But it does not give it the right to take away the charm of showcasing the driver's championship,,, at the cost of holding a constructors championship alongside each other's. If there is a constructor who comes up with a car that has an undue advantage, only 2 driver's benefit from it. Imagine 20 people playing poker, but for 2 of those twenty, we deal out of a different deck that has more aces, kings, queens and jacks. Motorracing has a human gladiator element connected it, if you take that away, then we are only left with who can create the best cars. Equality in regulations is important, within which teams can find ingenious solutions, but nothing that gives them an unfair advantage. I personally see F1 in a better shape in 2022. It's is challenging for the constructors, and fair to the driver's, that is what it should be.
  20. Expect some fire works from AM in 2022. They have the right technical and financial support to pull off a good season this year. They didn't waste too much time on developing the 2021 car by focussing on 2022.
  21. Great to see you back maure...
