Re: So, is Hamilton Racing this Weekend?

Well, that's disappointing. I can hardly blame Lewis for wanting to see his season out properly, but I am so gutted we don't get to see George in the Merc again.

Re: Is Sebastian Vettel a Top-Ten All-Time Great?

I wish I could find it but I recall Alonso many years ago saying something about Vettel along the lines of "lets' see how he does with an inferior car". This one?

Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Race Thread

I do know that Bottas often lacks pace to Hamilton, but not sure why it is this margin. I do wonder if that damage on Bottas's car head any effect. If his pace was that bad this weekend, I don't see how he can have held Hamilton behind as long as he did. Tbf, Bottas didn't hold Hamilton behind, Ham...

Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Leclerc is not getting the praise he deserves for the body of work he's putting in this season. Leclerc, Verstappen and Ricciardo are the drivers of the season for me so far. Hard to seperate those 3. While I mostly agree, I also suspect that all 3 are flattered somewhat by poor performing team mat...

Generally, sponsorship is given because of racing talent, though there may be other additional reasons for the backing; Stroll on the other hand has backing regardless of his talent.

Thanks exediron, I'd checked the sporting regs but couldn't find anything. I'd imagine it just wasn't reported to the stewards.
