Re: Is Vettel at Aston Martin starting to look like Mansell at Mclaren in 95?

To be fair to mansell he must have been about 42 at the time and that car was a dog. Mika was established at the team and obviously one of fastest drivers f1 has seen. I think even a young mansell would have struggled against him. Vettel deserves half a season I think but the signs aren’t great, he’...

Re: Is bottas time up at Mercedes.

Bottas needs to go, for his own sake as well as Mercedes. He’s actually doing an ok job some of the time, well over one lap he’s great, but mentally he’s broken. He will never ever match Hamilton over season, if anything he’s falling further behind over race distances. I’m sure he could do a good jo...

Re: Mercedes vs Red Bull - 2021

Merc slight edge in races, qualifying its hard to judge because Bottas is excellent over 1 lap (always has been) whilst Perez isn’t and is still new to the car. Even so Hamilton, barring his mistake in Imola (he got very lucky with bottas Russel tangle) is driving superbly and clearly relishing the ...

Re: 2020 Turkish Grand Prix Race Thread

How do we judge the Mercedes package in this race - lol. At times they were really poor. Bottas was poor the entire race.

I was expecting a Verstappen masterclass today. Instead, as ususal, Hamilton's patience and wise old head prevails.
Me too, he’s been at his impetuous worst. Thrown all his pace away whilst Hamilton has kept his head down and been Prost like.

Max could still win though. Very exciting race.

Stroll was done as soon as he moaned about his inters. Did well first half.
This is what you get when you remove the grip! Brundle is right!

Hamilton can take a less than great car and pull a performance out of it. Not all the time but more often than is to be expected. Alonso the same. Vettel can not, and when he tries to overdrive and push too hard he can’t and screws up. He is just not as good as Alonso and Hamilton. If Alonso was in ...

Hamilton has always been better. Never ever a doubt in my mind even when Vettel has the red bull champs he wasn’t up against a decent team mate until Danny ric and look what happened.

The real question is Hamilton v Alonso, they are head and shoulders above the rest, always have been.
