Re: The Official Sir Lewis Hamilton thread

He has earned it. It would be nice, and less hypocritical if he paid his taxes in the country that just honoured him. For a guy that has a lot to say about social issues, it looks awful Hamilton's quest for social justice as always stopped at the point where it might cost him some actual money. Hav...

Re: Nikita Mazepin social media video incident

The woman in the video, Andrea D'Ival, has come forward to say that she and Nikita are "long time friends". I haven't seen a clear version of the video, so I cant comment, but I am willing to take her word, That said, Nikita already comes with a bunch of baggage and he needs to be doing better. It i...

Re: Honda to quit F1 after 2021

Wont Renault HAVE to supply them as stated in the Concorde Agreement if Renault have the fewest customer engines? Presuming there are no defections from Mercedes or Ferrari?

Re: Honda to quit F1 after 2021

First off, it is tragic for F1 to lose one of only three engine manufacturers. However, Honda has once again come back to F1 with an awful engine, rose to mediocre, started to show real promise...then they quit. Again. It is sad to see an engine maker leave the sport, but to heck with Honda. Stay ou...

This win will be up there if Hamilton pulls it off, but he's proved himself to be a tit. I'm a Ham fan, but you're right, he moans way too much, when it isn't the case. He's an undisputed champion, but he can be such a toddler at times. The teams talks to him the way my daughter talks to her cranky...
