Re: 2018 Italian Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Threa

KIMI! Now if the cars can just be that close for the rest of the season were in for one hell of a championship fight. If the cars are like this for the rest of the year, Ferrari will run away with both titles. Ferrari are clearly fastest here. This is one of Lewis's strongest tracks and he did a gr...

Re: [Merged] Mercedes v Ferrari v Red Bull - 2018 edition

Hard to tell, not a good start from Merc left the door open for Ferrari this time.

Might be the first time since 2013 the Mercs are really challenged, the second half off the last 4 years have been Merc all day, let's hope this continues

I agree and it's not only team mate that's a factor. Vandoorne is in a car that is slower than expected whilst Leclerc is driving for a team we aren't used to seeing score points. If Leclerc was achieving the same results in a Williams as he is for Sauber he wouldn't be receiving plaudits that he i...

The material is also a huge contribution to a rookies possibility to show progress.

Re: Mercedes v Ferrari v Red Bull - 2018 edition

With a Verstappen lap, Merc would have had pole and probably won.
With a 7 race old engine Merc is right behind.
Vettel didn't dominate nearly like Merc in Spain.

This was not a race to judge the rest off the season from, IMO it's still advantage Merc, but their #1 driver didn't deliver.

Rosberg beat Hamilton in his last year, but IMO Rosberg showed terrible racecraft over their years, and Bottas, if he is allowed to take it to Hamilton will be better at that.

But IMO Merc doesn't have the best driver couple anymore, when the car isn't dominant it is more obvious.
