How long have Merc been in F1, ask yourself how many times has it happened before, I know what I think and agree with you, also with the slow puncture, pressures can be adjusted from the pit wall

Can make up anything he wants, was controlling the situation like on a pre-set play battle field and the wheel change guys running around were unlike Merc. The final 'coup de grace' of the puncture was the cherry on the cake.

Yeah those barsards at Mercedes sabotaging Russells drive...makes perfect sense to put Russell in the car rather than the reserve driver and then make sure he didn't win.
Same as Red Bull when they messed up Ricciardos pit stop at Monaco so he didn't win or Verstappens pit stop at Turkey or bla bla bla bla.
Do you morons never give it a rest?

LOL at this whole thread.

Why wouldn’t Merc replace a multiple world champion in his prime? He did win multiple times more races than second place person, no?

[QUOTE=SenorFunkyPants;27103824]Lol at beating DR.
*DR has jumped ship more than I've had hot dinners. If he was as good at RB as you profess then why did he leave, because his pit stop at Monaco went wrong?
He left what is now Alpine without doing his homework, the Renault engine is showing good results on the graphs and so far McLaren hype is all guesswork and speculation just because it's getting a no 2 Merc engine, well..blow me over.

DR was the better driver when paired with MV.
Thats the only relevant point.
Red Bull always prioritise one driver over the other.
When Ricciardo realised that wasn't going to be him, he knew he had to leave.

I had a burn up once with an M2,beat the sht out of it from the lights and catching me up on a roundabout he nearly went over the kerbs.
You must understand that with the other things having 1022 hp was a sizeable advantage my friend, there's an old American saying..'there's no substitute for cubes' or in this case horses.
So, roll on Bahrain and we'll see how good the Merc 11B is with or without HAM

I can't recall him saying that,he just said officially he wanted a fresh start, in reality he couldn't take the mounting pressure from VER.
