Came here to post basically this. Next year’s Merc will be as much ahead at the start of the season as this year’s one was.

In 1993 they could just spend their way out of trouble though… so the comparison is largely meaningless.
With regulations being as they are, it’s going to be a long, long time before they’re competitive again.

Probably just me, but selling tickets for a massive event like this during a pandemic (and in a hotspot like Texas) doesn’t seem like the smartest idea.
Seconded. Well said.
I assume you’re booking places literally right at the track? Because I’ve never had that issue with any race that I’ve benn to (and so far I’ve done about 10).
Yup. That’s how I’m inclined to feel about it.
As it stands teams (especially the big ones) end up perfectly prepared for the race / qualifying. We’ve actually seen more interesting results when practice was […]
Contrary to RogerA, I stopped bothering with Friday practice on race weekends now, preferring to get a bit more of an opportunity to experience the country / city I’m visiting as part of the trip.
I haven’t […]
Party mode was a qualifying setup they were all envious of. No-one questioned its legality… they simply went to work so they could do the same thing.
Now that the boot is on the other foot Mercedes seem to […]
Psychotext commented on the post, McLaren has added more sponsors than any other team in 2018 – Brown 2 years, 10 months ago
lol… it wasn’t exactly difficult to bring in more new backers than other teams.

Hamilton still forgetting he grew up middle class rather than working class. I guess it’s understandable when he saw the obscene money others had around him in F1 though.

Some good long term thinking there.
Psychotext commented on the post, 'Stupid £2 bolt' blamed for McLaren's Tuesday test delay 3 years, 3 months ago
I guess those massive vents they added help keep the $2 bolt nice and cool. Nothing to do with the exhaust overheating.
I was in the crowd at Austin… and on the whole it seemed like the reaction was generally unimpressed with the intro.
Might have been different for those on the start finish straight who could see the drivers […]
This sort of thing really puts me off ever visiting. My wife and I have been working our way through the entire calendar but we’re genuinely nervous about ever trying Brazil.
“…available engine settings include “a highly dynamic mode which corresponds to a setting used in Formula One qualifying for optimum lap times”, according to Mercedes.”
Quali mode. Nice touch. :D
