Re: Who do you think is lying? Alonso or Red Bull?

Hard to know who to believe but i don't think it would be that much of a stretch that RB would at-least hold some form of informal talks with alonso's manager after monaco. This is when dan really hit his peak for the season and if he was going to attract attention from merc/ferrai it would have hap...

Re: 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

Mercedes should win, bottas is not allowed to over take hamilton, so as long as hamilton makes it out of turn one in the lead with bottas behind holding up the big reds, easy win.

Should be an interesting quali with merc vs ferrari. I thought RB would have a little more pace, they are way off.

Re: Hartley: Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

What about Sainz? He is only on loan to Renault. I think if hartley does get replaced it may well come down to who the RBR team use as an engine supplier. I'm pretty sure RB can only bring Sainz back for a gig with the main team, not for the supporting act. It won't happen but i'd like to see Kvyat...
