Same for both drivers.
Turning the engines down does help Bottas though
Yip and it bs that they cant race
Looking at the times of the cars behind the Mercs aren't really going that fast.

Big shame for Russell, he was dominating latifi in the race as well as quali.

Hopefully Albon wins, screw Merc. One thing I always appreciated from Merc was that they let drivers fight

I don't even think this happened for a few years after Bianchi's death did it? I mean his accident happened in 2014 and I seem to recall safety car's coming into play too much over the last two or three years. Bianchi's accident has undoubtedly had too much of an effect though, and really it should have been put down to the freak accident that it was, a real lack of rationality from the people in charge of F1 once again. This sport is becoming more and more of a joke with each passing season.

SC's help to spice up the show more, that's what happened to the VSC. ;)

The VSC neutralises the race too much.

DO some people seriously not believe that both the mercs have the same issues? So many cars are having issues that it would be understandable if they both have something. Those saying it is because Bottas has something that they are telling Hamilton has the same for the sake of them not racing in nonsence.
Not racing sort of makes sence and i believe that is because they both have the problem and are in the best position possible.

They are reminding us that they are not exactly wizards when it comes to making strategy calls.

Lewis might get a penalty there, he did not leave any room.

Yes I feel the same, would like to see from Albon onboard but looked like he had more room on the outside

Like last year we have to listen to how Bottas is changed man and as fit as ever for winning the first race. Compared to Hamilton his race pace was pretty poor but i think that's the biggest difference between the two.
