Watching the pre-race interview with Max and the question was posed to him: "What would you do differently in Turkey looking back at the weekend?"

His response: "Nothing. I would do it all exactly the same way...I wasn't pushing too hard or anything."

Until Max learns from his mistakes he will never be a WDC. The above thinking is of an arrogant and obtuse person who may be loaded with talent but hasn't learned the importance of self-improvement.

Contrast that with DC asking Lewis what he would do on his qualifying lap and after a pause for thought, he stated 3 or 4 places where he left time on the lap. This is both thoughtful from him and ominous for the competition: Lewis always wants to improve.

Max already THINKS he is the best. SMFH

Was watching the side by side between Max & Lewis analyzed by Karun. The cars and engines were damn near equivalent. Max lost time to Lewis due to understeer in a few corners. To improve that, Max would work with the engineers & mechanics to figure out if he was running out of tire or needed a touch more front downforce. But hey, he doesnít need to improve right? And thatís why he was beaten.

My friend I know MAX . And his frustration was speaking ..
He knows what he did wrong . I'm pretty sure he felt it too (lol) by suddenly losing all the down force in Perez slipstream on asphalt covered with oil...
Keep in mind , in this race he lost 5 places at the start by lack of grip in the first gear , others started in second gear by the lack of grip..
In other words : The adrenaline was pumping like crazy , visibility was zero by the spray as well ..

May the best win today !

Yes...may the best win today.

This was an interview recorded earlier. There was no adrenaline flowing. This is concerning!!

Enjoy the race, my friend!!

I was watching the same video. It was telling. Different racing lines, as well. As I stated earlier...it's ominous that 7ewis says he could find more time.

Best Comparison of Max and Sir Lewis

This is from a pretty hard-core international racing forum. The member details why Max isn't ever worthy of a conversation about Sir Lewis. A brilliant analysis. Edit: English is not his first language.

I don't see RBR being able to defeat Merc even after Ham retires. If Russell gets the Merc seat, the championship battles of the future will be Russell vs Leclerc.

RBR & Max will likely move down the pecking order to a midfield team. Mclaren is on the up and up again and I think Williams might find it's way with the increased Merc collaboration.

Mate . "The Merc seat" is the keyword in your statement !

The rest is tons of *BS ...

Read my signature, my good friend. It says it all.

"Lewis wins the races he is supposed to win AND the races he isn't supposed to win." -R. Brawn, F. Alonso, S. Vettel, all said at various times over the past 2 several years.

"Max doesn't win the races he's supposed to win such as Monaco (several times) and Turkey 2020." -MKSixer, et. al. 2017-2021

'When will Max win his first championship' is in itself a sarcastic exclamation stating the obvious.

There's no denying Max can be quick but if he doesn't become a Champion this season or next he's time will have passed.
Granted that all true F1 fans would like to see Max & Lewis racing with equal machinery but this is F1 & it's rare that two or more teams run equal cars, Max just hasn't been driver enough to make up for the current disparity....unlike the truly great drivers that have been able to take Championships without having the advantage of having the 'best' car.

That's not meant as disrespect to Max he may well become a once or twice Champion but he will never be up there with the greats....that's just a fact, sorry Phillippe I know Max is your guy & If I had to choose between Max & Lewis to have a beer or two with I'd have the beer with Max but to be fair I'm not especially a fan of either of them
