Re: 2017 Italian Grand Prix Race Thread

Kimi has been shocking today. Took 5 laps to get past Ocon. Vettel and Bottas took about 5 corners. And yet people are still claiming team orders put Vettel ahead of him :) On few occasions, they have. That's not say that Kimi hasn't been shockingly poor for years and his last decent season was 201...

Re: Ferrari "not interested" in Alonso

I wouldn't be surprised if SM is drafting the contact for Alonso while he's saying that he's not interested in him. It just that way it is in sports, you deny until it is official.

I'm not saying they are working on bringing back Fernando, just that I wouldn't surprised if they did.

Kimi is simply not good enough.

Max is pretty unhappy about Danny jumping him.

It wasn't "engineered". Seb is simply much faster. He managed to get overcut without Kimi being stuck in traffic.
