Re: It's getting harder to be a Williams fan

I think that unless Williams start having top 6 finishes this season then 2019 will probably be their last.
I think Mercedes will probably buy them out to be a B spec team.

Re: Quiz question? F1

Well the two wet tyres are the intermediates and full wets and those are definitely used on occasions.
I think it was Bridgestone that had a specification called Monsoon, but I'm unsure if they were ever used.

Re: I am calling it now Hamilton will win WDC 2019

I think for Ferrari to win the 2019 WDC rests on one thing - How Leclerc performs. If Leclerc is very fast from the get go & beats Vettel, then Vettel will implode, this will cause massive disruption within the Ferrari camp which causes strategic errors & blunders which hands the crown to Mercs & Ha...

Re: Circuit de Catalunya

I dunno, it rewards the brave & punishes mistakes. I'm not saying its the magic bullet, but most modern tracks have these great big run offs that dont discourage the driver to slow down because they know nothing happens if they run wide (put two tyres on the artifical grass)

I don't think it would be 'allowed' to happen, especially in the latter half of the year if Vettal or Raikkonen (ha) are fighting the Mercs for either championship. Remember, the main reason why Brawn didn't pick Ferrari engines in 2009 was that there would be a stipulation in the contract saying th...
