V. Chris commented on the post, Perez aims to 'come back stronger' after run of 'difficult' races 1 week, 1 day ago
And yet, there are drivers that are always extracting more than their team mates. Different years, different regulations, different technologies, different tracks, but they still manage to beat comfortably their […]
V. Chris commented on the post, Vettel announces he will retire from Formula 1 at the end of 2022 2 weeks, 4 days ago
I will not go trough resources to double check my memories, but as far as i remember, RB6 was really fast, but fragile car. If they had less problems the title would have been wrapped up much earlier, but […]
Looks like George is fast learner. He is becoming true “Front wheel to rear wheel” expert – signature Mercedes move against Red Bull in recent years.

Also Germany 2018 was wet, chaotic race and Vettel had monster pace in the tricky conditions. True, his error was unforced, but the race was hardly straight. Today Charles had to deal with much more favorable conditions imo.
V. Chris commented on the post, Verstappen urges Red Bull to find more pace after close win in Canada 1 month, 3 weeks ago
If I recall correctly, the tire difference was 6-7 laps, for the hard rubber this difference is nothing I believe. This time Ferrari really was match for the Bulls in race pace, but I would not say faster. Yet.
Generally fair rankings so far, however I would not place both Ferrari drivers above Gasly and Alonso.
I consider myself Ferrari fan, but to be honest I barely paid attention to them this season. Both drivers […]
@esploratore1 – so you have 35 points, but you need like 50 or 60 more. Two and a half GPs worth of points. Even if Vettel was in his prime, which was not the case, this is massive difference.
BTW blaming […]
Ferrari had the opportunity to win, true, but only if they had a perfect season. I remember calculating the “what if” points and Ferrari just narrowly could have emerged on top. Mercedes played the conservative […]
V. Chris commented on the post, Bottas concludes his Mercedes chapter in Hamilton's shadow 7 months, 4 weeks ago
Bottas is nice guy, but in F1 I don’t want to see nice guys. This is sport for the likes of Senna, Schumacher, Alonso, now Max.
Hamilton and Vettel play nice guys outside of the cars, but when they see prey on […]

I understand the pain of the Mercedes team and fans and that they feel robbed and i hope that all the dust settles they will reconsider. It was just luck swinging the opposite way. FIA was consistent at least in […]
V. Chris commented on the post, Hamilton masters soaked Monza for record-breaking 69th pole position 4 years, 11 months ago
You sure this was going to pay off? I think poll was impossible because of the already known grid penalty. Finishing first in q3 is not enough, for poll you actually need to start from P1.
I hope this will not turn as new 2013 where before the summer brake we had decent competition and then 1 team (driver) destroyed the field pretty bad. Looking at the last few races this is exactly where we are […]
V. Chris commented on the post, FIA aware of sensor problems since January – Boullier 8 years, 5 months ago
Quite a legitimate question. They did not know Dan would do so well nor Vettel would retire. They still took the risk
They had a car on p2 and car on p12. And you are suggesting that they sabotaged on purpose […]
I totally doubt it :) Maybe he won’t be satisfied by the way he will win, but he will never voluntary give up win or title. Malaysia 2013 for example. He won’t let his team mate win, what about driver from […]
Now i know. Hamilton is to blame for the Red Bull dominance!!!
After the Hungary win the entire Mercedes looked very confident and competitive. Post season, Newey admitted in interview, that RB were pretty […]
Hamilton finally took his first win for the team in Hungary, and afterwards said the car felt so good he believed he could win all the remaining races.
He didn’t – Sebastian Vettel did
lol, just, lol […]
V. Chris commented on the post, 2013 F1 season driver rankings #1: Sebastian Vettel 8 years, 8 months ago
I am sorry but you need to back your claims with little more data. One fast lap means nothing in the era of refueling. It means as much as setting fast lap at the end of the race with option tyres. I wouldn’t go […]
