My friend, he's called that because he is a coke-head. And he isn't correct. He's jealous because he is 4th on the award list. Typical sour grapes.

Look mate...why don't the pair of you engage in a proper grown up discussion about F1....Instead of the childish Merc conspiracy nonsense you both spout.
Give respect to drivers and teams where it is due and you might find other posters are more prepared to do the same for RB and Verstappen.
Sigh: its a long shot I know.

To me the W11 water tower is spewing water over the top, just want to see fair play as it's got out of hand.No one wins like that on talent alone.

There is no proof whatsoever that the Mercedes car is anything but totally legal within the structure of the FIA technical and Sporting regulations.
Neither of you have shown one single piece of evidence hinting that they are cheating that resists even the most casual inspection.
Saying that they must be cheating because "no one wins like that on talent alone"....is literally all you have.

You do realize that Formula One works the exact opposite as normal juris prudence? You must prove that your car is legal, not the FIA proving that it's illegal. The car has been proven legal. It has answered every question and found ways to innovate that the competition hasn't been able to answer.

Ferrari Jet Mode was clearly illegal as were RBR flexible wings. When these were uncovered they were clamped down through sanctions.

The Mercedes is legal. They did a better job than RBR and continue to do so. Dedicate your time to writing letters to RBR enjoining them to up their game because worrying about how Mercedes performs isn't doing anything for RBR.

Perhaps worth noting that the Mercedes has a long wheel base in comparison to other teams...benefits in having more area to generate more downforce....good also for medium and high speed corners, but at the expense of making the car more reluctant to turn in for sharper turns.
Seems like Red Bull for instance have resisted going with a similar long wheel and have stuck with their short wheel base high rake car.

Honestly not saying this to troll, but there should be a never choice. These things aren't a given, especially with a lot of known good young talent to contend with. Plus, you never know when someone else (team or driver) jumps up to be a contender. All that being said, if he gets his head screwed on right and matures enough to put it all together for an entire season, he should get at least one or two.

Great article on this very subject. Now it features Lewis making comments so there are some that may say it's a conspiracy to keep RBR down and cheating. So here goes nothing!!

Nicely stated. There are no guarantees in F1 and besides LEC, RUS, SAI, GAS, and NOR are all there champing at the bit. It won't be a sure-thing that Max wins a WDC because there are some great young drivers currently in F1 as well as coming. This won't be easy for him but if he does all that which you state, as well as the added benefit of Darth Marko leaving RBR...he may have a chance to get 2 or 3. MAY...not certain at all!

Not until Hameeeeelton retires. They are sticking with the current engine formula until 2026 IIRC, so I expect his domination to continue as long as he stays with Mercedes and Mercedes stays in the sport.

I really hope he doesn't get tantalized by driving for Ferrari just because. I don't want to have to root for a Ferrari driver.

Its a good article which I bare faced plagiarised except for the bit about RB.
I'd love to find out why RB don't give up a bit of downforce (which their car has a plenty) to lose a bit of drag and gain a higher top speed.
There must be a perfectly good reason.
