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 in not especially a fan of either of them
My friend your statement , your comment will depend from the RB16-B and the HONDA PU ..
Not from MAX ...
If the RB16-B and the HONDA PU are fast enough . The whole new 2021 season will be a 2020 Abu Dhabi in repeat-mode !

So...The RB16-B has to be faster than the Merc's spaceship , equal would be good as well...

Same old chestnut being regurgitated by Merc every time they have a new PU saying they have 'issues' with the new regulations, preparing for one single upgrade only, have to make sure it's reliable..and right on time

Indeed . It's the same old Merc whining ! And then suddenly...
Surprise ! *Houston we are having a new spaceship to dominate the whole new season !

On the other hand ..The HONDA PU of Abu Dhabi made a big step forwards .
Hopefully HONDA was during the winter stop able to improve it !
It's for sure it will bring next month at least 40 more ponies ..

MAX P1 "first lap" during the race in Abu Dhabi . The HONDA PU sounds very aggressive !

MAX pulled 126 km/h in first gear (Launch Control)

That's a great sound especially on the overrun and it sounds much better than the other teams' PU's which are coarse.
Hopefully a forerunner with that convincing performance for the new season and there's no moaning like from the girls already at Merc

Circuit de "Barcelona-Catalunya" today !

Kelly Piquet went for a drive as co-pilot in Max's Porsche

Seems like she's the Red Bull driver..Click 2 X on the right side in the first pic , and you can watch the video !

I must say Kelly in the RB race suit looks most appealing

This is a fact. When we were at CoTA in 2019 and the Honda PU was easily the loudest and most aggressive sounding engine on acceleration and overrun.

Hmmmmm.

What is Max's number?

Notice the number of people stating he won't win a WDC until Sir Lewis retires. The Universe has spoken.

My friend . It looks like we didn't learn anything from what "George Russell" has shown to us ?
"90% car / 10% driver"

And the GOAT himself ? Just listen to him...

Interesting, if somewhat lengthy read of why Mercedes-Benz is currently so dominant.

Its a fact of F1 racing...the best driver usually ends up in the best car and gets paid the most.
Its just bad timing (luck) for the other drivers that an exceptional driver is in a dominant car.
So maybe just suck it up, quit whining/crying all the time and enjoy the racing for what it is.
