Re: 2020 Italian Grand Prix Race Thread

Yes Kvyat was unlucky he was stuck behind Gasly and then the red flag ruined his race. Gasly performance after the red flag was also impressive and it was exciting race after the red flag.

Re: Bold Prediction : Hamilton out, Vettel in

Unfortunately that is not happening. Next year again Mercedes will win both the titles. Bottas is also confirmed so Hamilton will be at least for 1year I am sure. Vettel is pretty much confirmed for RP. Now that Perez has announced he is leaving.

Re: 2020 Belgian Grand Prix Race Thread

Gasly was good and without the pitstop I think he would have even better result.
