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

There is an entire generation of F1 fans brainwashed to think that every little incident needs to be penalized. True. Yet the worst part is that the younger drivers tend to cry "foul". Hamilton did it in Canada, Norris today and Leclerc after him. Pussycats, crybabies. But at the end of the day, ev...

Re: Red Bull Performance 2019: Renault vs Honda

I'm going to say a very slight improvement on where they are now, in other words still not regularly racing Ferrari/Mercedes but massively ahead of the Formula 1.5 battle behind them. I also think that reliability will be an issue, and by the end of the year Max is going to be causing problems by b...

I think they would take that to be honest, it would justify their decision. Then they work on reliability from there.

Red Bull Performance 2019: Renault vs Honda

Given all the speculation about whether Red Bull will gain or lose with the Honda engine next year, just wanted to see what the consensus is here. Do you think Red Bull will improve or decline with the Honda engine next year? Personally I'm voting for a slight performance gain. I think the Honda eng...

The only main flaw I see in the options is whether or not the qualifying rules with Q2 compounds becoming race compounds would nee...

Not sure if its just me but Ill add another one - the cars actually seem to oversteer and slide into corners if you are too aggressive on entry in 2017 which didn't seem as prevalent in 2016.
