Re: Is Vettel at Aston Martin starting to look like Mansell at Mclaren in 95?

The Mansell/Mclaren debacle was beyond embarrassing, and thankfully for "our Noige" most people have forgotten it. Vettel is past his prime, pure and simple. His last race win (Singapore 2019) was in a car that had dubious legality. I think he genuinely cracked when he got demolished by Ricciardo at...

Re: Daniil Kvyat treated poorly?

He was treated very poorly, in the way they announced his departure. I suppose even today, apart from having a rich daddy to get into F1, it also pays to have an engine supplier who demands a driver from their country be in one of their powered cars. That's very unfair on Tsunoda and strikes me as ...
