Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2018 Austrian Grand Prix

he got overtaken long before his tyres were a problem. What does him not crashing into other cars have to do with it? :? You could see the blisters already. Hamilton got a great start and was leading comfortably. The race turned because of a bad strategy call and a mechanical failure - not his faul...

Re: 2018 Austrian Grand Prix Race Thread

Just seen a replay and what I didn't realise was that Max bumped Kimi which helped him make his overtake. Naughty.

Decent length run up to turn 1 and the Ferrari's start on the US (Merc on SS). I think Vettel will have a chance at gaining a place or two.

Leclerc to Ferrari

Channel 4 (UK) have confirmed that Leclerc has signed a 2 year deal with Ferrari starting in 2019.

Seems like it could be Leclerc to Ferrari and Kimi to Mclaren. Alonso probably out of F1 judging by his comments to Cadena Cope radio.

A “definitely faster car” doesn’t get undercut and lose the lead. Also, something that is often ignored is that Bottas was in fact pulling away from Vettel after the SC period .
