Re: Is Hamilton ruining Max’s legacy?

Hamilton is not ruining Verstappen 's legacy. However, if it is true that the Verstappens are blocking a remotely competitive teammate for Max, then this will taint his legacy for sure. Verstappen beat Ricciardo fairly clearly on qualifying pace in 2017 and 2018. The same Ricciardo who has smashed ...

Re: BRREAKING NEWS. LEWIS HAMILTON OUT OF THE SAKHIR GP THIS WEEKEND.

Bottas will be very nervous going into this weekend. No one should expect much from Russell this weekend, considering how he'll have to get used to what is a completely different animal of a car. If Russell gets a podium I think that's job well done.

Alonso definitely not in consideration I'd say. Nor would I say he wants it. Alonso will want to practice and make sure he's fully up to speed first before racing the same car as someone like Bottas.

When did Hamilton last retire due to technical issue? And the time before that?

Exactly! Heartbreak awaits.
He's probably got two races to do it though.

With all the weight Albon put on I don't think he'll have the pace to challenge for 4th.

F1's fear of competitor's cars increasing their "Carbon footprints " would then make it necessary to forbid cars from crossing over these track limit lines for good . :lol:
