Re: 2021 British Grand Prix FP & Qualy/Sprint Thread

Yeah! lets just follow NASCAR. Maybe he race could be broken into segments to bring the field back together. Boring race that just devalued the real Qualifying. Just drop this idea it adds nothing.

With a lot of Max fans the driver it seems that the driver has now become more important. Now it's about polarized debating that goes nowhere. Be nice that we could get back to just enjo...

Why start a post like this? Just ends up with poster whining about drivers they don't like. Whether anybody on here likes it our not this is how this sport is right now. You'd be better off naming drivers on the grid that don't have big money behind them.

I think you need to look at the lap times in the race. Perez did not have the race pace that stroll had. Perez's fast lap was in the 20's. Stoll got into the m1.18's. Held off Bottas, in a superior car, for quite a few laps and then ran away from Vettle in the ferrari after the pit stop All this arg...

Where are the usual stroll critics? Not bad for a 21 yr old up against a much more experienced teammate. 2 races in a row. Should be interesting race between the two of them tomorrow. Maybe it's a case of him and his engineer finally being on the same page.

Merc lost the race in the pits, stopped to soon. When you know your car is better on it's tires why would you stop first? Hamiltons best chance was right after the pit stop but both times when he had drs leclair had drs at the same time on a renault. Good race though.
