Really? I haven't seen them, in fact I saw it the opposite with many of his mistakes from not remaining calm going by the wayside. Maybe I have missed some, but I haven't missed the races. Time will tell as the season plays out, but if my gut tells me anything it is that there will be much less a delta between HAM and VER this year than there has been in the past. In many ways I see both sides of these arguments unfairly punishing the driver for sins of their past.

Maybe...
But he had his pole position time and his fastest race lap deleted last race.
In todays FP he damaged his car going over the kerbs and later had his qualifying practice run ruined by going off track.
It seems mostly overdriving the package...or not depending on your POV I guess.

Good call outs the damage is quite a mistake. I think Im comparing to maybe 2-3 years ago where I expected every race to have drama and I dont see or hear it as much. I am assuming he matured as an individual and thus, it may translate to the track.

Let's see how the start goes tomorrow. I'm confused about Lewis going fastest in Q2 on used tires. That might be a disadvantage for tomorrow.

MAX vs HAM = •36 thousands !
That's just a few centimeters .....It depended of the wind and the clean air !


Ferrari made a big step forwards !

Nothing in it and hammy may have the pole but compromised with used softs he has to use at start and I see an advantage there for Max overall.

Of course , Mercedes made a big step forwards as well ...
#Warp-Speed !

As for the race It's all about the tire strategy ...Timing and a pitstop under 2 sec. !

Red Bull can do that ...

That warp speed is still mystery and the tyre choice may not allow hammy to use it if at all. Whether Bot has it too will be seen tomorrow but even so Max is in a Merc pincer.

Continuing your speculation. As many pole positions in 2009 as Max has in his career. Let that run past your brain, very slowly.
