Let's see if mercedes can solve the rear end stability before next race, it's like 2019 all over again. We will really see if they have what it takes to stay on top.

There is only one Rainmeister on the grid and it's Sir Lewis. Though I will catch some flack for this the up and coming Rainmeister is Lance Stroll. He has a few VERY strong rain affected races.

Indeed. The past 7 seasons mean nothing.

Step one: Grasp grenade firmly in your non-dominant hand.
Step two: Clearly sight the target to be ka-blammo'd
Step three: Pull pin while grasping grenade firmly.
Step four: Throw grenade.

That is all.

Walked his way through the park to a win. Not spin around and end up in a dizzying non podium finish.

Haha every team has to face some huge adversity, mercedes has some relatively smooth sailing until now so let's see how it goes and if they can still stay on top despite the challenges. If you ask me I think they've got it, you don't win 7 titles if you're complacent. Plus look at their crazy floor design, it shows they're still trying to innovate. I just want to see if they have what it takes to face such huge adversity (poorly handling car + limited testing + shorter time frames), because if they can turn things around and still win I think mercedes has to be one of the best teams of all time despite not having all those wins.

Apparently Mercedes think they are a step behind Red Bull in performance based on the recent test.
I would love to see them racing with a similar of performance...it would make for an epic season* of ebb and flow as each team makes improvements during the season.
*Especially if Ricciardo and Leclerc can join in.

Well mate , I just watched Imola 2021 again .
And I saw the black ballerina 44 car spinning in the gravel trap . He stopped the car in the gravel , and finally he hit the wall *Anyway !

Dumb luck ?
While he kissed the wall , his dumb grandma teammate crashed with the Russell boy !
RED FLAG !!!

And more dumb luck was coming to his side !
His A$$ was saved by the RED Flag and it fixed the 44 car !
I'm convinced ! "The dumbest are the luckiest"

MAX made it look like a casual Sunday drive with the kids in the back seat and won the race in the rain !

All i read from you is complaining and whining. Lewis came in 2nd. Hardly a dominant showing Max. Especially when he had to make 7 overtakes in a race when there were 6 in total last year.

Even if Max wins this year, it won’t mean anything in comparison to Lewis until Max wins more than 7.

I do have to admit lewis was pretty lucky with that red flag, but it shows how talented he was to be able to work his way back up the field to P2, especially knowing how edgy the w12 is and how the mercs suffer when following other cars.


In terms of the constructors championship I think it's gonna be really really close, red bull is so fast this year and they have 2 insanely capable drivers now. I think even if lewis get p1 the 2 red bulls will get p2 and p3, and even saying that p1 will be a tight battle.


Let's see if mercedes can upgrade the w12 so it's even faster, or will red bull introduce a new upgrade package that will finally out them distinctivly ahead of mercedes? Either way it's gonna be a great battle.

Great post!

I think people need to understand that in 2017 and 2018 not-then Sir Lewis was trailing in the championship, for the most part, until either just before the break or just after the break. In each case, especially 2017 with, "The Diva", Lewis had to overcome a faster car and hardened driver in VET. In 2017 he was racing for his 4th title which was not certain and had to work in a new formula, overcome his 2016 defeat, defeat a new team mate who was pipped to be a future WDC based on his performance at Williams, and beat VET. Both 2017 and 2018 were masterful seasons which saw him draw abreast of and, eventually, pass VET with 5 WDC wins.

The rest is history.

Most people just look at the end results in the WDC to determine how past seasons unfold when the proper way is to look at it race-by-race. Max doesn't have the seat time at the sharp end of a championship battle to really contend with Sir Lewis who has been in 12 championship battles and won 7. He's the only driver who has driven against 3 WDCs in the same chassis over 7 seasons and won 5 times. It's really incredible.

All of this is the say the following: Max will have his hands full with Lewis over a 23 race season. Max has the faster car and still isn't leading the championship but it is early, yet.

This promises to be a pretty amazing season.

Cheers-mk
