Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Good effort from Kvyat to be P6. Gasly probably felt he could have been at least there but his car had a damaged floor from Q1 which is a shame.

Re: How will Russell perform against Bottas?

So, tell me, did Russell have a 1 lap reputation prior to F1? Five poles out of twelve in F2 - Albon had three! Four out of eight in GP3 Was looking at Formula 3 European Championship from 2015/16 but it looks like cars might be important there. Stroll dominated in 2016 and Leclerc was only fourth ...

Re: F2 & F3

Now watched all of today’s race. Mazepin is an idiot, I think his defending was over the line four times in those closing laps. It was similar to what Schumacher did to Barrichello in Hungary that time.

Two five second penalties for him. No penalty for Tsunoda.

Good drives from Tsunoda and Zhou.

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

That was so close. I think we can call that a really good job from Russell.

I was wrong about Red Bull being off the pace here, surprised me.

Really good job from Kvyat.

Re: How will Russell perform against Bottas?

So it's not Hamilton that's stopped Bottas from winning more races? Yes but not exclusively. With only one Mercedes and all else being equal (I know...) Bottas takes 6 wins. Lewis has 11. As much as I feel Bottas is underrated, he's not always following Lewis home. 6.. but unlucky not to be 9. Silv...

Re: Silly Season 2021

Red Bull or bust for Albon according to Horner, so sounds like Tsunoda will be driving for Alpha Tauri.

I wonder what Red Bull do in 2022 if Tsunoda is beaten by Gasly and Albon struggles again.

Should it not also lead to a review of all the drivers Russell's been paired with? Russell being paired with anyone who we have a read on their abili...

Re: How will Russell perform against Bottas?

I see what TGH means by Russell/Bottas’ future shouldn’t be determined by a one off race (or possibly two with next weekend), but if Russell matches or betters Bottas it is very hard to see how Merc keep Bottas on for 2022. In that instance you’d only think Russell would get better with more time in...

No evidence.

But do you think 'Williams' have been given an incentive to let GR drive for merc.

Lower engine costs or more expertise next season.

No proof, I'm just speculating for fun.
It’d be surprised if there wasn’t some sort of deal which led to Russell driving for Merc this weekend.

I’ve gone for the Bottas ahead in both option. Hard task for George to come into a new car and be close straight away but if he does that, fair play! He could get close if he races for Merc in Abu Dhabi though. The shorter circuit might make gaps closer than normal - 0.3s over a 90 second lap is clo...
