  1. Ferrari should absolutely keep Kimi. He’s on form right now.

    1. Absolutely and Vettel needs to keep a little more distance to other drivers. At the collision with Bottas he should have left him more room – he risked to leave the race with 0 points, just to pass the wingman of his prime competitor.

        “he risked to leave the race with 0 points, just to pass the wingman of his prime competitor”
        well if he didnt risk, he wouldnt have messed up his WDC chances and wouldnt have excuse to not take it… He wouldnt show weakness under pressure to do silly and completely uncessary things, and we wouldnt be discussing those moments to justify his willingly throwing away his chances…

      2. Vettel isn’t the strongest at wheel to wheel with other cars

    2. Kimi has these little periods of good form almost every year. Gets a new contract then goes back to sleep.

  2. Almost a race win worth of points between Hamilton and Vettel now.

  3. Hope the Hungarian Grand Prix curse strikes on Hamilton again

    1. Wow. Really;

    2. Hope you get strike by a David Beckham’s free kick…

      1. Let me rephrase that then. Hope the streak of Championship winners not being Hungary Winners continues. It’s just a light banter anyway. Don’t take it too seriously

    3. Man U and Vettel … both losers so get over it life too short.

    4. Yeh sorry to burst your bubble but all these little statistical anomalies and their relation to who wins the WDC were pretty much wiped out last year.

  4. It’s always such poor form to wish misfortune on the competition rather than just support the driver you like. I honestly don’t understand why people resort to it.

    1. I’m not wishing misfortune in a bad way. I’m talking about those who won the Hungarian Grand Prix has not won the title for the past 14 years because that means Vettel will have a higher chance of winning the championship.

      1. @siegfreyco wow I don’t see the casual relationship between winning the Hungarian gp and not winning the title they just happened to be coincidental for a decade

      2. Also more silly statistics… When Ham won WDC, he never won Austria

        2008 No Austria, Ham won WDC
        2014 Rosberg – Ham WDC
        2015 Rosberg – Ham WDC
        2016 Ham – Ros WDC
        2017 Bot – Ham WDC
        2018 Vers – hmm ??? fill in the blanks…

        1. What happens if you aren’t particularly fond of any driver’s, but know who you irks you the most?Some people aren’t raging fans for primadonnas who have no actual problems.

      3. I’m not wishing misfortune in a bad way.

        Instant contradiction in one short sentence, nice. Ferrari have the clear fastest car and tifosi still need to wish ill luck on their rivals. Guess that shows the faith you have in your own man.

  5. @f1fan-2000 As i have implied. It’s just a stat(Kind of like the Madden Curse). It was just a stat joke but some people are taking way too seriously.

    1. This should have been a reply to a comment. Sorry

  6. The “swing of the pendulum”, or “change in momentum” a lot of people expected mid-season/before the summer break turned out to be the complete opposite of what was fated by many. Even though Ferrari didn’t win the race in Austria, Vettel’s pass on Hamilton was seen as “symbolic”, even by the commentators at Sky. As if Vettel, even though Hamilton was limping, was showing him the fight is on. Silverstone happened, and the momentum seemed to be with the Scuderia – winning convincingly at what is truly a proper Mercedes track (especially taking Hamilton’s sulky demeanour into account). If Ferrari could just do what was expected, and win on tracks that favoured them more than Mercedes, which was to follow with Hockenheim and the Hungaroring, things were looking on the upside. Instead, Vettel lost 35 points to Hamilton in Grands Prix where he should have bagged many points over him. Let’s day Vettel won both and hamilton came second, that is 16 points. This is a massive 51 POINTS difference in just two races. We don’t know if Mercedes will dominate at Spa, Monza or Suzuka (as was expected for Silverstone), so this was a very, very expensive 8 days for Maranello.

    The battle for the WCC is absolutely fierce with 10 points between Mercedes and Ferrari at this point in the season.

    Bottas really doesn’t deserve to be that low in the WDC (4th) – the fact that he’s behind Raikonnen is really because of terrible luck.
