Re: Its Official: Sebastian Vettel to Aston Martin in 2021 (merged)

Perez had Telmex backing from the early days of his career, when he first started at Sauber who becomes their main sponsor ...you guessed it Telmex. so you could call them his rich Daddy. Stroll has won more Championships he has competed in than Perez, so why does Perez deserve to be in F1 more than...

Why do some people give Stroll such a hard time? Stroll = there because Daddy's money .....maybe, but Perez = there because of Sponsors money- whats the big difference?

Re: Indycar at Road America

I don't see any point in Rossi going to F1.................unless you're in the 2 front running teams you're just plodding around mid pack or worse - no matter how good a driver you are. Stay in Indycar and win some championships.

Re: F1 is boring

There's a few things F1 could learn from Indycar. More pit stops equal more drama, especially when you add fuel usage to the calculations. More parity between the teams equals better racing.
