Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

It was a giant bee last time...what's it this time? This time a particularly violent fart unsettled the balance of his car. But he'll never actually go so low as to admit this. If my girlfriend read this she’d say this is a reason why I’ll never make it as a Formula 1 driver. The missing talent mig...

Re: Silly Season 2021

Re: POLL: The six additional circuits

I think all in all what the different circuits displayed was just how boring and samey the circuits we use have become. Most have such a similar feel and use a mix of the same sort of corners. Completely agree with this bit. Variety is what made this season so good. Yes very good point :thumbup:

Re: How will Russell perform against Bottas?

Bottas is actually doing an Albon just the dominance of the Mercedes has masked it, hence why if he gets swallowed on the first lap he never recovers. I think very few will think Bottas is performing as bad as albon. Most of Bottas's very negative results have been down to very bad luck. Albon is t...

Re: How will Russell perform against Bottas?

It wouldn’t completely offset, they would have to pay Bottas his 2021 wages (maybe more for break of contract) and then pay Williams to break George’s contract. Williams demanded $12 million to break Bottas’ contact back in 2017 and Mercedes paid it. I imagine George would be that amount or more. S...

Sakhir Grand Prix Sergio Perez won the Sakhir Grand Prix ahead of Esteban Ocon and Lance Stroll, as George Russell suffered a heartbreaking end to the race.

Without that it’s not inconceivable that he could have caught and overhauled him. What happened after, being st...
