Re: 2019 Bahrain Grand Prix Race Thread

It seems that without the protection of elderly, past-it teammates that Vettel is no better than the likes of Rosberg. Just how good was last year's Ferrari? I'm thinking the same. Unfortunate for Ferrari to lose Alonso right before they figured it out. If Ferrari invested the same resources in the...

Re: McLaren vs Honda 2018

One thing I didn't realise was McLaren extended their wheelbase this year, I think for the PU switch but could also just be because that's where it's going to maximise bargeboard area and reduce drag. So in other words, the car is different enough that maybe you can't use this car to prove that the...

Alonso is definitely good to be putting out good results for the next 3 years and if they can't nail Seb down he's a great replacement.
