Re: The Official Lewis Hamilton thread

I just hope Lewis can break his duck at brazil and finish first while securing merc the WCC.

The Ferrari is looking very Racy at the minute and the merc looks to be the tyre eating monster it used to be back in the day.

Hamilton Swap for Vettel 2019

I was just wondering specifically to Ferrari\Merc fans\followers if you would happily swap Lewis for Sebastian for 2019? Please note this is from a constructors point of view not my favourite driver point of view. I understand people have recently been very vocal on Sebastian's ability, but this guy...

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

I really feel Ferrari will be a step above next year, for me its comparable to the Red Bull in aero (slightly weaker) and a match if not better than the Mercs engine. The only thing that can screw it up is Ferraris own development with the 2019 specs - Though they aren't massive changes. Red Bull wi...

Re: Ricciardo's future: Another Hamilton, or another Alonso?

Ricciardo seems way more popular than Verstappen. I honestly don't see any reason why Red Bull would care which one of them won. It's not the same situation as Webber/Vettel. Webber was from outside the Red Bull family and was never as good as Vettel. Even then I think everyone at Red Bull bar Mark...
