Well said Bob C!
There is a very big difference: Ricciardo stays on the track after his late lunges to overtake.
Verstappen lunge was so late, that he could not stay on the track at all. If Hamilton had not opened up his own […]

Precisely right. Ferrari/Vettel was a very serious threat to Mercedes in 2017-18, especially at the start of the season.
In the first 10 races of 2018, Vettel won 4 times, Hamilton won 3 times, Ricciardo won 2 […]
Quite enjoyable. Hamilton had to execute three overtakes for the lead. The overtakes on Verstappen and Bottas were brilliant. Perez was a formality.
Norris is a great racer. Alonso was splendid at the […]

Had to go with Lando! He drove a magnificent race (outpacing Ricciardo!), and qualified well. The overtake on Leclerc was tasty.
Hamilton was good, but not at his best. A rare error in the race put Max on […]
Sexual assault is never acceptable. No matter what your age. Not even if the woman later says “we’re friends” (and we all know the pressure she would have felt to say that!). He reached back and groped her on […]
I can think of 3 ways to manage the traffic:
1. Allow drivers on in/out/cool down laps to use the full circuit on those laps… (i.e. continue onto the regular circuit after turn 4, and then rejoin at the back […]

I wouldn’t worry, he’ll still somehow find a way to win the race.
ROFLOL! It has been that kind of season for Lewis.
Let’s hope that he is back for the season finale.

he has the most support of any driver in history.
Really? More than Verstappen? More than Schumacher? Hamilton has received a lot of support, but I don’t think it is more than any other in history.

@johnrkh – well summarised! I admire Verstappen – he is a brilliant and exciting driver – but every so often his Ego Quotient exceeds his Intelligence Quotient….
For me, one exciting story of the race that […]

Absolutely agree. Plus, Perez MUST get a drive in 2021!

Agree @babrorace Let’s also not forget Japan 2014. The race is rightly remembered for the death of Jules…. in racing terms it is also memorable because Hamilton overtook Rosberg around the outside of Turn 1 in […]
Racing Point and Williams both run the Mercedes engine and have done for years. Ferrari had a more powerful engine in 2017-19. The Mercedes advantage is very much about the while car as a package (in most […]
But he was consistently faster than Occon for the entire race.

So what is your solution to track limit problem?
To answer your question to Keith…. (not on his behalf!):
– Track limits are defined by the white line marking the track boundary. For a lap-time to count, […]
Thanks for that quote from Lewis.
Some people (even opponents) can underestimate the depth of Lewis’s “on the fly” analytical ability. I particularly appreciate the fact that he just kept on learning about the […]
I agree that DRS was too powerful…. but it wasn’t without ANY skill…. they did have to get within 1 second first.
I was impressed by how quickly Hamilton closed in on Bottas. He erased the 1.5 second […]
Yep. Verstappen is now one of my top 2 drivers!!! He doesn’t surrender to PC nonsense, he just speaks his mind.
My opinion- it was reasonable (but inconsistent) to use a full safety car. However it was o […]

Ricciardo stood out to me. Beat his team mate in qualifying, had a good start and made up a place, showed great race pace – overtook Leclerc – kept his tyres alive, kept his car running and didn’t make any m […]
