Re: Who is the most underrated driver on the 2019 grid?

Perez for me. He is a serial podium finisher if he gets a sniff at it and the only Formula 1.5 driver to finish on the podium this season.

I think he is better than he gets the credit for.

Re: 2018: How do you rate the season?

Way to easy for Merc this time around again, a 2 from me. No matter what the top teams do, they will drive to top positions without any hazzle, some even get waved through. Merc have now won >75% off the races during this hybrid era and it doesn't look like it will end anyway soon. Hyperbolic much?...

Re: How many Grand Prix have you watched?

First race I probably viewed on TV was late 90's early 00s. I wasn't fully sucked into the sport until I went to my first race at Silverstone. I can still feel the shaking the V10 Williams gave me. Became a JPM fan that day. I rarely miss a race and I think from about 2005/6 I have missed maybe 10 r...

Re: 2018: How do you rate the season?

It's a 4 for me. It could well have been a 5 if Ferrari/Vettel didn't drop the ball.

The first half of the season was fantastic and it was all so close, i really thought Vettel was going to take it this year. The points do not show the whole picture.

But he is the most successful Finn in terms of wins. I don't think that's a disingenuous claim to make.

Apparently both Mercs have a problem with a water pump. At least in the Finnish broadcast they were showing that Valtteri's car was already fixed but they're still working on Lewis' car and it's unsure if the car will be ready on the grid. I haven't yet heard any tweets or anything about it though....

Sebastian has been off form for the last few races, sadly it happened last year as well, but I like to give him the benefit of the doubt and not pretend that the man can't race.

Re: I am calling it now Hamilton will win WDC 2018

I wouldn't say it is that unlikely. Only bad luck/brain farts has caused Vettel to not win all of the 4 previous races. Actually I'm coming round to agreeing. It's still in Sebs hands, just. If he drives at his best for the last 7 races he probably will be champion. And that is exactly what I think...

There was an article, on my favorite news site Daily Mail, showing how Vettel had lost over 125 points to Hamilton over the last 2 years. The points swing from this year alone is at 80 points lost through his errors. Lewis only has a 30 point lead and with some tracks that Ferrari will be stronger ...

Re: Why do you support who you support?

For me, I support Hamilton as he is a British driver. But to be honest, I don't have a driver I dislike so when he leaves, assuming we don't have another Brit I'll probably follow whoever I find exciting. I own a DR 'Shoey' t-shirt so maybe I'll support him... Or at least just cheer when he does well.
