  1. Toto seemed more satisfied with the outcome as compared to Christian .. what does that say?
  2. AM has used a different route to channel the air around the car, and its really intriguing. The sidepods may look wide from the top angle but the if you look at it from the side it is clear they have used the sidepods quite effectively. Interesting to see where they will end up in the field.
  3. I would bet on Gasly and Lando if i could.

  5. Troubled waters for AM. I'm sure they will come strong through this and put up a good contender for 2022.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. http://gptoday.com/full_story/view/812486/New_Aston_Martin_base_8216takes_shape8217_in_timelapse_video/ 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.
  9. What a compilation of the race for Fernando by the F1 Media team!! 👏.
  10. Great team work!! http://gptoday.com/full_story/view/806130/Alonso_8216the_best_driver_in_F18217_8211_Prost/
  11. I have respect for otmar. He has been very smart in defending AM when times were difficult. And very efficient in building this team to the success it reached last year.. and then came the stroll money that slipped logic away.. He will be a key player at Alpine, who need someone exactly like him to take control of the team. He's definitely an asset for any team that were to hire him.. ... AM wanted Alonso.. Alpine took away Szafnauer.. good one Alpine.. good one.. 👏
  12. This above article is of someone's opinion in hindsight/aftermath. Alonso is speaking for BOTH himself and Vettel, and the Ferrari-Alonso-Vettel era,, and NOT just about himself or only his time.. “We both tried Ferrari, got close at times, but didn’t make it in the end. Maybe Ferrari was not ready to have a World Champion in the c#ckpit again in our times.”
  13. Hmm I kinda agree.. not leaving more room for Gasly,, was not very Fernando like on an opening part of the race.. I think he should have used a little more of the run off to avoide a contact.. it's hard to blame him, coz he did not know where Perez and Gasly were, so he kept that line thinking Gasly would keep on the left, which Gasly couldn't to avoid contact with checo. He pretty much got the penalty that was deserved by a driver for his shunt with mick.. I guess he got frustrated on almost being 3rd,, and then being at the end of the grid.. Though day at the office..
  14. Ouch, that's Spitting hard facts, I'm sure the reporter bit his tongue after Alonso threw his bulls##t back at him 🤣 It's interesting, coz he's showing the hippocracy of the system with actions and not just words..
