Mittens commented on the post, Herta's IndyCar success should qualify him for F1 drive – Alonso 4 days, 5 hours ago
He has proven himself to be a fast driver in a car of comparable speed to F2. Indycar is also full of great talent.
He had a great season this year, he easily could’ve taken the championship if one more race h […]
Mittens commented on the post, Grosjean looking forward to being 'a proper rookie' in IndyCar oval debut 2 months, 1 week ago
If by that you mean the experience from nearly 179 starts in F1, 10 F1 podiums, and two podiums (plus a pole) in his rookie Indycar season.
Yeah, he’s going to do fine. He’s one of the most experienced drivers […]

Unfortunate crash in the beginning. Really screwed Rossi and Andretti’s chances for the title. They need to bounce back at Indy or it’s finished for them. Dixon is too consistent for Rossi to challenge with inc […]

Oh, wow. Mazepin is dreadfully slow. The gap between him and Mick is jaw dropping.
Mittens commented on the post, 'Hamilton didn't break the rules by reversing' shouldn't be a story 6 months ago
“…or did it show F1’s rules are too complex?”
Yes. Absolutely. F1’s rules are lengthy and often obtuse. The overly complex ruleset makes it difficult and downright intimidating to get into the sport as a n […]
Mittens commented on the post, Herta soaks up pressure from Newgarden for St Petersburg win 6 months ago
I really like the St. Petersburg circuit. The contrast between the extremely wide runway straight and the tight city sections makes for a nice variety. The Indycar season is shaping up to be a banger.
Grosjean is […]
Mittens commented on the post, Why Wolff was wrong to tell Russell he should have backed down against Bottas 6 months ago
I did not think Toto’s comments were so problematic when I first read them, but this article really illustrates the point well. It is extremely dangerous for a person with so much political power in the sport to b […]
There is absolutely a direct relation between budget and performance on the track. Sure, an it is still up to an engineering team to design the car, but a team with a larger budget can hire more engineers. A team […]
Mittens commented on the post, Russell admits Bottas was "probably not" at fault for crash 6 months, 1 week ago
Agreed. Both drivers hold some degree of responsibility. I think George’s view is rather nuanced and mature.
Mittens commented on the post, Russell and Fowle become GPDA directors as Grosjean steps back 7 months, 1 week ago
If that’s the case, good for George in stepping up to take the role. The GPDA is more-or-less a driver’s union and it is vital for the sportsman’s union to have representatives that are competing with/against […]

I agree. I don’t see what the purpose of the FIA’s circuit grading if they’ll just grant exceptions. There are a number of FIA grade 2 circuits that would be MUCH safer for Formula One than Monaco or Baku.

I really like it. I prefer this over the bumblebee.
The British and Americans didn’t have state sponsored programs where government employees were acting in bad faith to deceive international anti-doping authorities. That is a terrible comparison. Apples to oranges.
