Re: 2018 Japanese Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thre

Ferrari drivers trying to match Merc didn't work their way, they should focus on Red Bull and 2019 now because Merc is untouchable now.

Re: I am calling it now Hamilton will win WDC 2018

I agree. It starts to look a lot like 2017. Ferrari and especially Vettel are in the process of throwing away yet another title. This time last year the points gap was "only" 34 when it is now 50, even when Ferrari have had a relatively faster and more reliable car this year than they had last year...

Re: I am calling it now Hamilton will win WDC 2018

If Vettel had a car advantage maybe, but since it's the other way around and Merc has proved that Bottas will be used I find it a zero chance for a Ferrari/Vettel chance, this is signed and sealed

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

2012 was a close battle, Mclaren was probably faster but Red Bull put things better together so that year was probably not won in the "fastest" car.

Before that it was Kimi in 2007 that took advantage of the McLaren duo meltdown.
