  1. Tinted glasses is a nonsensical term, therefore I don't see any usefulness discussing it. Crowd repeating manipulative articles published by (mostly) bias media is not that easy to shake off. It's everywhere. "Most people know" follows usually with claims which clinical psychology is warning rest of us not to accept due to their overwhelming falsehood. I've read today opinions so called self-appointed experts judging the major incident involving two protagonists. Not even them cannot agree on one common statement of truth based on facts. They just spewing their personal bias in public domain, and now it's being repeated by masses on sidelines. I don't have any problem with anyone admitting they do like Alonso's driving, and his personality. Any claims beyond that really bore the heck out of me.
  2. There was the incident which end up with Briatore leaving F1. That one was related to on track action. He is BETTER - that's a subjective judgement and hard to argue for or against. Clinical psychologists do not accept conclusions based on public opinions. Alonso is probably a good driver. Is he better than last four or five WDC? I don't know how to answer such questions because we each look at this sport through our own senses how we view and accept state of perfection. I should add case of Grosjean. When he was under threat missing a race due to having over 12 penalty points, many drivers really behave nastilly because they knew he could not risk proper defence and be misjudged. Vettel was in similar situation when stewards were competing among themselves who gives him more penalty points. In that period DR really pull a one or two dirty fast ones on him, and easily got away with it. You see, this will not happen to Alonso. He screwed (sorry) Sainz, he screwed Vettel once or twice, yet he gets always away with it. Figure that one out. Precious work of art at Mercedes the same. There is no force on this Mother Earth stewards would dare to call foul against him, especially when he was closing on Schumacher. Not everything is pretty in this world, and some of us do realise that.
  3. Agree. That was then, and this is now. Things change quickly, and Brown is collecting all accolades. I assume it will be too much to expect when things will go wrong one day, and they certainly will, that he will accept responsibility and resign (as opposed to blaming and kicking out Seidl). It was Otmar who put down any speculation about DR moving to AM (so he said); obviously based on alleged tension in McLaren camp.
  4. Yes, Alonso is Saint who has never done wrong.
  5. D/T 2021.09.13 12:36 CEST Szafnauer also said neither them or Vettel have Plan B. Well, maybe it was not talked about or explored enough, but Vettel has a Plan B, it is called retirement. From my understanding squabble between both parties is about duration of the new contract as a singular issue.
  6. My race was over after first lap. Mr. Stroll Jr. managed to eliminate his teammate after start. I wonder what Otmar was thinking. One can wonder if Seb will ask for more next year from owner's son. Then Ocon and Mick wanted to shake hands, and Seb was done for the day. It's nice it works for some drivers, however sadly not for all of them. What about Mr. Stroll - nothing?
  7. D/T 2021.09.13 07:54 CEST We view events around us differently. Hamilton was probably proud of stewards after previous incident as well.
  8. Protection racket continues. What else is new and unexpected? Hamilton's side will be milking it for weeks. My view doesn't count, but I am lost how anyone - except stewards of course - can absolve Hamilton from being the instigator of this incident. Vettel had his story to tell after the race.
  9. This is now second race in which Hamilton is appearing not exactly in most shining lights. Stewards would crucify Vettel for similar act. I feel strange to take Verstappen's side after all dirty work he has done on Vettel in his early years.
  10. Verstappen was decelerating, yet faster than Hamilton exiting pitlane, much slower and only picking on speed, yet cutting into Verstappen path. As a fan I am not thinking this is a racing incident. 100% Hamilton's fault not giving enough space, which he could, had he wanted. On some other forum they blame Verstappen. I've watched the clip over and over, stopping it by seconds, and we can argue what Hamilton did, and what he could have done to avoid collison. I also think if Verstappen panicked, and hit brakes, he would have flat tires for sure. Curb toss his car up, and rest is history. I am lost how Verstappen can be blame at all. I am not his fan, but Hamilton did bad IMO. Bad actor in this latest incident.
  11. It is possible that last 18 months did a job on him. I would be happy if he continues, however I will understand if he doesn't.
  12. Seidl's handy-work. Not bad at all. I am disappointed with Seb. I am not sure why he is so far behind Stroll in this race. Ocon needs to cool down. Gasly - tears.
  13. Vettel is walking backwards. I am not watching the race without interruptions, thus I have no idea what's wrong now. Hamilton and Verstappen will be investigated, again. They will not give up, until one or both end up in hospital. Yuki, Gasly...sad weekend.
  14. D/T 2021.09.12 12:59 CEST AM last year compared to AM this year might have something to do with delayed committment to next phase.
  15. D/T 2021.09.12 08:00 CEST It's good to hear Austrian's assurance that not everybody went crazy in the F1. Liberty with others like CVC are in it to make money, not from the love of sport, so we should not expect much.
  16. Sprint races also stressing equipment (sort of wear and tear) more than originally design was calculated on, thus reliability might be adversely affected, yet I am not hearing FiA or Brawn getting rid of those ridiculous penalties to drivers when things go wrong. In normal course of business some people will be on unemployment line for such decisions.
  17. With latest news, drivers will be asked to participate in 25 race-events, and as of next year, sprint-race will be added as an independent event to the main race. I guess it's more money for the commercial owner, otherwise why bother?.I also doubt that it will stay in 18 laps. Just wait when drivers will drive with blood in their eyes, and accidents due tiredness begin to pop up.
  18. Poor Gasly. Lighting start, sleeping McLaren in the front of him, boom, and it's over. Bad things happen to good people. Well, he will correct it tomorrow. Vettel's car is still having its own mind and doing what it wants, rather than what driver wants, so, AM didn't fix it. What a team.
  19. Drivers? More like Brawn & Co. Drivers always hated (were speaking about it negatively). In a nutshell, in Brawn's world, better you are, and harder - smarter you work to achieve good results, more punishment is awaiting for you at the end. Expression like upside down world has to be viewed in new light.
  20. Rumour - Andretti is considering to buy them out.
  21. Sainz is definitely not a happy sailor right now. If AM wants to play big, they have to be consistent with reliability and performance. We are in mid-season, and AM should know quirks of their equipment inside out. if they don't, then instead publicity guy, go and hire competent engineers who do know how things work.
  22. Copy that. The thing is, today you have 3 cars on a lead lap, and others being fractions apart in performance. One slip, and drop in race ranking could be really significant.
