Re: Honda - Heh Heh

McLaren should have stayed the course with Honda but they did the H a huge favor by dumping them.

This is the reality for McLaren now. Second rate chassis, second rate engine

Re: 2019 Austrian Grand Prix Race Thread

What a race that was! Best race of the year! For Max, that was probably the most impressive performance of his career thus far. He came back from the adversity of a poor start and just chipped away at the cars in front of him. On that Hard tire he was absolutely flying! I was amazed that the Red Bu...

You are right Max, you drive like you are still in Karts, go home and let the grown ups play until such time as you understand that you are wrong sometimes

Re: Should Verstappen get a penalty for his overtake on LeCl

. Obviously a penalty - the rules state that you have to allow the cae ahead/alongside room - Verstappen didn't there can be no doubt about that. Do people not know the rules ? I just don't know what a suitable punishment should be. As with Vettel's penalty it would have been better if Verstappen h...

Re: Red Bull Mercedes

Why would Mercedes want to provide Red Bull with their engines? It would be an alarmingly foolish move if you think about it. Pretty much everybody with an opinion on the subject says that being a works team is a huge advantage, so what should Mercedes really have to fear? If I'm an engine supplier...

Re: Honda engine at Spa to equal Ferrari engine??

Great to see Honda finally speaking out. Mclaren last year was just ahead of FI. If they were to use some other engine they would have been further down. I hate it how everyone is strawberry on Honda for Mclaren failures. I never believe Mclaren had a great car anyways and everyone is simply blamin...

It seems like one McLaren fails to finish each race. Reliability is critical. Again, this is a practice year for Honda, like it or not.

Whatever the outcome, one thing is for sure: FIFA is not sweeping this one under the carpet with a sham 'internal investigation'. :nod: I'm not expecting instant miracles but this could be a start for the long-overdue cleanup the game needs.

Re: Will Alonso get fed up with the underperforming Mclaren?

I've no doubt that Alonso will get fed up with the poor Mclaren, but at the end of the day its his fault that he is in this position IMO. He had a WDC capable car in '07, but fell out with them so badly that he had to go back to Renault. To make things worse, teams had realised from '07 that it was...

Unless Alonso could mount a WDC challenge with the 2015 Ferrari, possible but not likely, then if Mclaren win a championship before Ferrari Alonso has made the right call. I think you nailed it on the head. I don't think Alonso can beat the run and hide Mercedes team as constructed even with Ferrar...

It's hard to not say "Nico" in this situation, but the truth of the matter is: Hamilton had this race by 20 seconds. At the end of the day, the Hammer's team isn't going to screw up that badly every race.
