Re: Who are the BEST QUALIFIERS on the grid?

This never seems to happen in F1. Just because driver A beat driver B a certain number of years ago and now driver B is beating driver C, it doesn't necessarily mean you can simply rank the drivers. Take your nuance elsewhere! It isn't welcome here! :twisted: In all seriousness, there is definite m...

Re: PF1 Forum teammate wars vote: Bahrain 2021

Stroll - Stroll was quicker all weekend while Vettel it seems struggles to settle into the team but more disconcerting continues to make silly mistakes. However Vettel managed to score more points than Stroll albeit 5 penalty points on his license as opposed to Stroll's 1 WDC point. This bit in bol...

Re: Who are the BEST QUALIFIERS on the grid?

I am confused by the almost unanimous conclusion here that Max is the best qualifier on the grid. He has a total of 4 pole positions after 120 entries. He also has ten wins which says to me that that his race day performance is more than twice as good as his qualifying performance. Max did not take...

Re: Who are the BEST QUALIFIERS on the grid?

I do have to say that I am a little surprised at how close the gap between Max and Lewis based on the models/numbers, given the differing circumstances for large portions of their time together on the grid. I have to wonder whether there have been a reasonable number of races over the last 6/7 year...

Should Honda/Red Bull be a bit worried? That’s three of their four cars having some sort of engine problem over the course of the weekend.

I still think Norris did an excellent job but the gap to Ricciardo is probably partly explained by damage that Ricciardo received from Gasly: https://racingnews365.com/mclaren-confi ... asly-clash

Re: 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Vettel is a complete washed up bum to be honest .. obviously didn’t train during the off season.. seems content to be just one of the guys .. pathetic really from a 4 times wdc.. compare that to Alonso who has clearly taken off season seriously and looks really prepared Vettel slowed down for Yello...
