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

I don't think most people with enough money to buy an Aston Martin care about F1, let alone the "inner details" of the Aston Martin F1 team and their F1 results. I am not sure either than a F1 die-hard fan with enough money to buy an Aston Martin would care. It's essentially about increasing brand ...

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

He didn’t do anything wrong on Sunday that I saw. With others spinning off, Vettel kept it on the road despite having a reputation for that. Did he get any points along with his stop/go penalty? After 5 in one weekend in a 23 race season he really needs a clean season now. It’s a shame Vettel got a...

Re: 2021 Emilia Romagna (Imola) Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Unless Hamilton looked quicker and Bottas was clearly holding him up, I don't think they would at this early stage of the season. Toto has shown ruthlessness in the past. It's only 3 points in that example but you'd rather have them in Hamilton's tally at the end of the season rather than Bottas'. ...
