Re: When will Ferrari ACTUALLY have the advantage?

I can't answer you question, but would just like to say that I'd love to hear Lewis say 'Ferrari have the advantage' in Spain so we can all look forward to seeing Lewis beaten by an intergalactic bounty hunter with a piece of paper :lol:

Re: 2019 Azerbaijan Grand Prix Race Thread

Lewis said in a post race interview that he lost the race because he was too nice in turn one. He was pushing a fellow driver half cars width out of actual racing track and calls it "too nice".

After a few US posters mentioned the sky bias, I did notice at 1 point in China a distinct difference between the C4 and Sky commentary teams - the Mercedes double stop.
