Re: 2017 Australian Grand Prix Race thread

Good for F1 that there is competition at the front again with two teams and someone 'different' has won on pure pace but still think merc threw this away. I've always thought there strategy under pressure has been questionable over the last few years but have been able to get away with it due to ha...

Yes, this. Unless McLaren get some big sponsors on board, I can't see them ever dumping Honda.

Re: 2017 Pre-Season Testing Thread

I was wondering if Merc dont want to go out in the wet so other teams can not study the airflow? Didn't Hamilton say that he wasn't too keen to drive in the wet today? He said I'll put some excuse of a leg cramp & let Bottas take the car out in the noon session. Yes and he won't drive today it seems.

Not a promising start for McLaren, but if you're going to have something like that happen then it's definitely better to happen on day 1 of testing rather than during the first race of the season. Of course, if it starts becoming a trend then that'll be a problem... I'm a bit disappointed, tbh. Ren...
