Re: Who will claim 4th in the WDC?

I would bet checo, he has 2 races less than the rest, so he has comfortably scored more points per race than his competitors, so if this tendency continues in the last races he should be able to retain his recently gained 4th place

Re: Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon

IMO I see both Checo and Ocon better than Bottas, the problem is tht none of them would be willing to play second fiddle just as Bottas would, so for Mercedes it might not worth the gamble. I see Bottas at a Hulk level, pretty good, but somehow plain and predictable, without that killer insctinct of...

Re: Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon

Racism has played a big role on it, normally European drivers get much more interest, and there’s also a growing pressure and bias towards Ocon beating Perez to justify his value and prove himself as a deserving Mercedes driver, the problem is that Checo is a very tough referal and Ocon hasn’t been ...

That’s the main problem with Hulk, he lacks that killer insctint that sepparates the good drivers with the great ones. That hability to take advantage of the slightest opportunity, just like Checo has shown many times

I think he he has matured a lot, he is one of that very few drives who has that killer instinct to attack at the right moment and make the most of any slight opportunity that he find. I really hope to ser him in wearing red overalls instead of pink, he could be a very good upgrade over Raikkonen

Runors indicate that red bull has built a superb chassis for new 2017 regulations, and without the token limit Renault PU can get closer to Mercedes PU, so I wouldn't be so sure about the Mercedes domination again, I firmly believe that Ricciardo will be in contention for the 2017 title
