Except funnily enough, not one shred of proof is provided. Why it’s almost as if this isn’t in fact proof of anything other than that Symonds opened a hole and sounds came out.
And you’d have said the same thing last year. I fully expect the pecking order to show little to no change this year, honestly, and I’d say there’s a better than 4 in 5 chance that this year is yet another […]

No, and if this format is instituted I will likely never watch another F1 race again.
I think he means better by comparison to the rest of the field, which there’s little question that they are. We have genuinely never seen dominance like this in as long as I have been watching the sport, which is […]
The same happens far more frequency in the other direction. How many 10/10 votes have there been this year, when there was not a single race all year long which would merit recall even two or three years down the […]
Rosberg 100% deserved this. Hamilton has been the benificiary of luck *and* of team orders in his favor, even just this year. He can’t accept that, but then try to disown his bad luck. Rosberg won 100% on merit; […]
I think anyone who has paid attention to Hamilton’s ego, the fact he always puts himself ahead of the team and ignores team orders, and his not-too-rare lapses in sportsmanship — including trying to suggest […]

Rosberg was better, no doubt. He won the championship, did what he needed to do, and did so while being a team player who puts the team’s interests ahead of his own — hell, he’s even followed team orders this […]

Bring back the tire war, too. I’m tired of watching cars racing on intentionally crap tires. (And god knows Pirelli can make crap tires.)

And the current race director’s now all-too-frequent decisions to simply ignore the rules and make up his own as he goes along are also an unambiguous display of disrespect towards the drivers, teams and fans.
Exactly. It’s complete cobblers — the Rosberg turn one incident isn’t remotely comparable because he was nerfed off the track and clearly gained no advantage. And there was nothing borderline in Max’s cheating. […]
This is utterly revisionist. At no point was he told that he “may” have to relinquish the position. He was directly told by the team to do so. Whether they then changed their minds and told him not to is neither […]
Of course you’d have been a perfect angel were your rivals colluding to cheat you out of a position. Verstappen’s driving was shameful; both he and his team clearly knew he was in the wrong, yet both tried to […]

Yep, no question Hamilton should’ve been penalized. He literally doubled his lead.
Also no question Rosberg shouldn’t have been penalized. He was clearly ahead coming into the corner, until Verstappen nerfed […]
Why should he apologize? Whiting hasn’t been doing his job for ages. Note the near-unanimity from drivers post-race that Hamilton should have been penalized for gaining an advantage at the start, yet Whiting did […]
For an indication of how boring this race was, note that in the host country NBC ditched almost the entire last hour of their scheduled coverage with barely any post-race wrapup at all, so they could instead show […]
