Re: 2021 Turkish Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Clearly Lando

Not sure what Daniel is doing - apparently corner 4 was the difference for him making Q3 - we know he's better than this - and is providing information to support Lando and McLaren improve - but hope DR gets his fairy cakes together soon

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2021 Spanish Grand Prix

Hamilton and Verstappen had the best cars and no issues - should have finished on podium so less than that a sub-par performance - LH won with team strategy, MV lost with team strategy - NEITHER did more than expected - neither deserve driver of the day - others in lesser cars who outperformed them ...

Re: McLaren could have blocked Sainz going to Ferrari

DR was apparently McL first pick 2 yrs ago - but couldn't get him over line - while Sainz has done a great job - with a Merc engine next yr - is this a game changer - or will McL be compromised on integrating the engine in 2021 so not as competitive like Ferrari til rule changes?

I think it's clear max is a talent - but has had preferential treatment at team as well (not that it's been the main issue affecting his success I add)
Still - I'm less clear that max would perform in a midfield car - and not sure without preferential treatment he'd do as well as he has
