Re: Mercedes vs Red Bull - 2021

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2021 Emilia Romagna (Imola) Grand Prix

. Due to the recovery, Hamilton. What did Max do that was equivalent ? For the last few years Hamilton has often been denied votes in the "driver of the day" threads because he basically just led from start to finish - but now that Max does that he gets loads of votes. Hilarious. . . Aight man.

Re: Mercedes vs Red Bull - 2021

Ultimately, when I think about which car should have won the race in Imola, I conclude it's RBR because they could and maybe should have locked out the front row, which should have been enough to confirm the win, given that their race pace was worst case scenario marginally worse than Merc's and giv...

Re: Mercedes vs Red Bull - 2021

In the mixed conditions in Imola, I think Merc were as fast or faster than RB once they got their tyres into the window, and faster at the end of stints. RB were much faster at the beginning of stints to the tune of several seconds over a few laps. It's simply very evenly matched overall between the...

I’m surprised he hasn’t caught up to Sainz quicker
I think he's saving a bit, understanding he has plenty of laps to get the job done and that Norris is holding up the Ferraris. Still has to manage.

On the wet line, nominally you would never leave the dry line to pass into a corner on the wet line because there is no grip.
