  1. Monaco Thunder? Monaco has been pretty dull, and probably the least thunderous (if not the most) of all tracks on the grid year after year. Its a weird situation with Monaco, Its a challenge that has become a ritual every year, no matter how boring the procession is. I personally think these cars deserve more breathing space on a race track in order for the drivers to be creative with their race craft. So far the new regulations this year have brought in good racing on other tracks, so lets just give Monaco another chance. Reverse grid anyone? 😉
  2. Welcome back to the principality folks.

  4. https://www.gpblog.com/en/news/109863/aston-martin-interested-in-bringing-in-alonso.html Unfair competition in F1 has hindered Alonso's true potential. Brands want him to be a part of their team to bring the consistent performance that he can deliver, without being able to offer him a consistently fast car, and that's unfortunate coz that's how F1 works.
  5. If that IS true, then we have Ferrari domination coming in for 4 straight years by the look of it...
  6. 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. Leaving the brake magic on in Baku? Didn't that cost him his championship?
  12. Mercedes engine. And by the look of it a clean and innovative interpretation of the new aerodynamic rules.
  13. Fair enough. Change is constant. And a change for the better is always appreciated.
  14. AM is definitely in the top 5, and could even spring a surprise. As far as I can see, they have a very innovative approach to their design that could well be better than McLaren.
  15. 🤔 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.
  16. Its not 'unjustified' just because it happened to Vettel. Its called motor-racing.
  17. AMR definitely seems like one of the best rendition of the rules. Very innovative.
