Re: Silly Season 2020!

They're not just trying to decide between the two though, they're looking for a replacement for Lewis when/if he retires. Bottas certainly doesn't look like the guy who's going to win the title for the team. I don't know if Ocon is, I'm with most of you that Russell looks like the better prospect lo...

Re: 2019 PF1 TMW Predictions: 'Racing Point Force India'

It always surprises me how many people automatically jump to Stroll's defense when other people are saying Driver X is better than him.

Re: What are the Best Season Performances Ever?

Surprised no one has put forward Vettel 2013. He was relentless in 2013. True. The second half of 2013 was the most dominant I have seen a single driver be since the 2004 Schumacher championship. Especially that Singapore race, where he was consistenly 2-2,5 seconds per lap faster than everyone else.

Re: Will Bottas Bounce Back in 2019??

Really? Verstappen and Ricciardo both overtook Bottas several times in 2018 and they weren't the only ones. All you have to do to realize which driver is better is look at the number of poles and wins comparative to Hamilton as his teammates. Rosberg 1,000x out of 100 for me. On Dutch TV Verstappen...
