Re: 2019 Italian Grand Prix Race Thread

Hardly post in here but all this chat about the inconsistent stewarding decisions has me thinking there's quite an obvious play for the FIA to attempt to smooth the erratic calls out.... HIRE THE EXACT SAME STEWARDS TO OFFICIATE OVER EACH AND EVERY RACE ON THE CALENDAR?! It's seems ridiculous that t...

Re: Time to talk about Grosjean

What's everyones thoughts on his position at the moment ?? My opinion on him hasn't changed from day one. He hasn't changed at all and most drivers don't. The thing is.. he has never done well at taking blame.. the recent one a prime example... Not a fan, I think he is just full of hype.. what's th...

Re: Time to talk about Grosjean

He was one of the better drivers on the grid for much of the 2013 season. But besides that I must admit he has been bad or mediocre. Not sure what to make of this season. I’ve read somewhere that this year’s Haas car has an understeery balance by nature and it suits Kmag more than Rogro. I really t...

Time to talk about Grosjean

0 POINTS thus far this seasons in what has been an extremely competitive car. Although he has had some bad luck in terms of car issues in qualifying (and of course the wheel nut in AUS), to me he seems like a guy driving with TOO much emotion. He must be under a ton of pressure with the start KMag h...
