Re: Hamilton is overdoing it with the politics

I can take the BLM writing on the helmet, I can take the activism... but the political slogan at a podium ceremony is not activism. It is a stunt. It's boneheaded. And I am not a white male. Can we please, please, leave the overt politics out of at least the podium ceremonies? So appealing to have ...

Re: 2020 Belgian Grand Prix Race Thread

YMMV, but the only way Mercedes don't finish 1st and 2nd here at Spa given the lack of rain, is if they take each other out, are taken out by another or suffer a rare Mercedes failure.

I'm expecting another boring race, unless the crap Pirelli tires spice things up.

Re: 2020 70th Anniversary Grand Prix Race Thread

Can anyone explain something to me.... When Pirelli used to make really soft tyres 2011-13 teams would always stop twice, often three times but they were still able to do a stint of at least 10 laps or so on the softest tyre. Now in order to tempt the teams away from a one stop strategy they have t...
