Re: Indycar at Road America

are their some areas of road america that could use sprucing up, yes. does that change the nature of an excellent track to race at, and watch a race. no the track was losing money for a long time and could have just went away, as far as hosting an indy car race, or any other race. i look at it this ...

Re: 2019 Austrian Grand Prix Race Thread

combination of the track and the heat made for a good race today, shame it is in the stewards hands again with all the penalties f1 has been handing out the last few years, not sure how they won't hand out another today. nice to see the two young guns battling edit: some 45 minutes or so after the r...

Re: Who should replace Bottas at Merc

The thread says who *should* replace him. The answer to that is no one. Mercedes have the perfect team at the moment, they are winning, they have the best driver and the their second driver is fast enough to get the silver without causing serious problems for their lead one. However, the poll asks ...

I can't see Merc letting Bottas go. He was new to the team in 2017, had a bad year of bad luck in 2018 that basically eliminated him from the WDC. Both him and Hamilton get on very well. Introducing Ocon or Max to the mix will cause many issues at Mercedes, a la Rosberg/Hamilton. I think if Merc go...
