I actually don't think it should be. Racing incident and certainly Vettel is to blame but there was no bad intent nor was it an egregious error.
Well he's ruined Valteri's race and he's ahead of him. Slam dunk usually regardless of intention

Re: Max or Charles

At present I'd go with Max.
He's a proven race winner who has the most out and out speed on the grid, with the possible exception of Lewis.
LeClerc has potential but all i can really be sure of is that he's better than Ericsson

Re: 2018 French Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Interesting Qualifying. When you look at the lap time differences and the length of lap, for both here and Spain, it looks like the Mercedes advantage is pretty similar across both tracks. Kind of points to it being a tyre specific advantage and that the development of the 2 cars in the meantime has...

Whenever you try to judge driver performance all you are really doing is comparing them to their team mate. That's why when you do get a direct comparison it's always more useful.

A very small data set. Alonso has been in F1 for 16 seasons. Indeed.

Is it best to judge Vettel solely by 2014 or do...
