Re: Mercedes 2019 vs Mercedes 2014-2016

The irony is that it is 2 ex Ferrari behind it now, Aldo Costa and James Allison added to the most effiecient PU in the business makes F1 in 2019 a drag race between Merc drivers to the first corner.
I've only watched highlights so far and even that aint much..

Re: 2018: How do you rate the season?

Way to easy for Merc this time around again, a 2 from me.
No matter what the top teams do, they will drive to top positions without any hazzle, some even get waved through.

Merc have now won >75% off the races during this hybrid era and it doesn't look like it will end anyway soon.

Re: [Merged] Mercedes v Ferrari v Red Bull - 2018 edition

Interesting that in their respective press conferences this weekend both Vettel and Toto seemed to think Mercedes have had a small advantage overall this season. I would argue that it is in both of their interests to do so. For a truly unbiased appraisal I would be looking elsewhere. You mean like ...

Re: 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

It's easy when you have everything designed around you, the best team, best car and a solid wingman, nothing from that is the luxoury for Max but I believe it will be some day.

Re: [Merged] Mercedes v Ferrari v Red Bull - 2018 edition

Qualy Merc -> Ferrari -> Red Bull
Race Red Bull -> Merc -> Ferrari

Might be a bit masked by Bottas once again doing his wingman job, but that's my opinion.
Merc have now won 75% off all races during the hybrid era and F1 pundits desperately try to tell that they're 3rd fastest now..
