Re: Could DAS have caused the tyre failures

I don't think its an unreasonable request to produce tyres that degrade to the point of them being utterly unsuitable for any kind of decent race pace long before the actual construction of the tyre is compromised. All 3 cars with front left failure were still lapping at a perfectly good pace right ...

Re: Second Red Bull seat

I can see Perez knocking on the RB door given the situation at RP and he would appear to be an upgrade on Albon. The junior program really doesn't have anyone better right now (its far too soon for Tsunoda) and Gasly and Kyvat have already had their shots and not really done any better than Albon is...

Re: Is Mercedes unbeatable?

You are arguing with a straw-man. At no point did I point the finger at Mercedes for being dominant. I do however blame the FIA for the 2019 rule changes. It was a point aimed at no one in particular. Though in regards to the 2019 rule changes, if its open knowledge that they make the high rake con...

Re: 2020 British Grand Prix Practice And Qualifying Thread

I'm of the opinion that Stroll is pretty much the ultimate form of the 'coached' driver. There has to be some latent talent in there for sure, otherwise he would never have gotten as far as he has, and I can only applaud the standard he has reached. However, it seems that when it comes to the absolu...

I really, really, really don't get it from Alonso's perspective.

Re: Austria '20 Hamilton/Albon

I feel like the punishment was dished out because of what happened to Albon rather than the actual incident itself... I don't think Lewis did much wrong and Albon was a bit too hasty to make the move stick. The race was his to lose at that point, another hard lesson learned perhaps.
