Robbie commented on the post, Porsche would be a "great addition" for everyone in F1 – Wolff 1 week, 4 days ago
Mercedes doesn’t really benefit from it? You must be kidding. Don’t lose anything if they leave? Sorry, but they’ve been gleaning billions worth of marketing value by being in F1. Just a hobby? Come off it.
Robbie commented on the post, Reverse grid sprint races under consideration again – Domenicali 1 week, 6 days ago
@stefmeister Agreed. I mean, I suppose it is fine as a novelty once in a while due to engine penalties ala Spa and Monza, but to have this on a regular basis I think would just be artificial and predictable. Of […]
Robbie commented on the post, Reverse grid sprint races under consideration again – Domenicali 2 weeks ago
I don’t expect reverse grids to fly with the teams any more than it did the last time they tried to get that through, so I’m surprised and disappointed with SD for that. I suggest the smart thing to do would be […]

Yeah really hard to know, eh? Only he knows but probably even he won’t know until he feels it’s time and that is obviously not yet. So interesting because I think the new F1 is designed to keep the cars and the […]
Agree to both of you.

@red-andy Agree with your comment.

Max handles pressure extremely well and has the experience from last year that Charles obviously is lacking when it comes to handling pressure when it is at it’s greatest.

Obviously it’s both, plus the team, but there’s this thing about handling pressure when it is at it’s greatest…
Robbie commented on the post, FIA's floor change is needed to prevent cars bottoming out and crashing – Mercedes 2 months ago
Nope. Not even on the day when it was the worst for them, after which suddenly it has not been happening to them upon their hand being forced by making them work towards a TD to do what they should have been doing […]
Robbie commented on the post, Hamilton says Mercedes are "further back than we were in the last race" 2 months ago
I have a feeling the floors need to flex to at least some degree. Similar to rear and front wings. I’ll be surprised if a new test for floor flexing suddenly makes Mercedes able to catch up. The alleged a […]

Said LH as they proceed to find a bit more for tomorrow and a bit more again for Sunday (not that I think, nor ever did, that they would be fighting for a win this weekend other than through attrition of others).
@sjaakfoo Yeah and I’m surprised Seidl is speaking of teams opposing 2023 reg changes. That’s news to me. My understanding is that some teams who have less issues if any with porpoising are opposing mid-season reg […]
If they did progressively shift their focus towards Max there’d be a reason for that. Yet you’re saying their needs were similar. And the thing is Max did start to embarrass DR, leading him in several cat […]
For sure. But one could also argue they brought it upon themselves. What is even harsher, particularly with the budget caps now, is when a driver is taken out by another driver who did a penalty worthy act, and […]
Ross Perhaps you can reference where you can support this claim. I’m not saying I don’t think that it is possible that a team may build a car that leans toward a certain drivers preference, but what do you hav […]

@stefmeister Ok good stuff, thanks.
S Certainly some shades of grey to what you are saying. Firstly, of course a team is going to back both their drivers. In the case of Max coming in, of course they were going to pump him up. Why wouldn’t they? B […]
