Down With That Sorta Thing
- Dec 22, 2003
This is carnage. And they're going to do it again next week. This track is a car killer.
Brundle said in the commentary that he'd spoken to some of the teams and the cars had basically been packed up in boxes for over 6 weeks after Australia was cancelled so they've had a fraction of the time they'd usually have to prepare them for the season after Winter testing.Or the cars are not as reliable this year. Time will tell
Well true, but 2020 cars largely carry over to 2021 except for minor changes - the major changes come in 2022 now.... perhaps it gives him a chance to shape the team to his liking - I certainly expect some controversy / dicking aroundShould be good if they can make a decent car tbh
They've already re-signed Bottas, so unless Hamilton suddenly retires, I doubt Merc will be available. If indeed Merc are around at all by 2022.
I don't think they have either contracted for 2021 yet.....
Well, as I said, very unlikely but not contracted, as Seb acknowleges:Four-time world champion will leave Ferrari after they ended contract extension negotiations, but a lack of available drivers next season could see him facing a year out of the sport – or leaving altogetherwww.independent.co.uk
Alonso is acknowledged as one of the best development drivers around so he's probably coming back because of the new technical rules.We saw Vettel in his Red Bull days cause problems and be ragged at times when under pressure but this was overlooked because he did great in a great car and ultimately won.
Now we move on to his time at Ferrari and he seems to have the same negative aspects as before but with additional negative aspects, he costs a lot of money and is clearly slower than his team mate. In fact there are a number of drivers who are clearly above him at the moment.
The Alonso move is only understandable if his wage demands have decreased significantly.
Yes, this is true, but he is also extremely divisive in teams - Marc Priestly was at McLaren when Alonso was causing trouble:Alonso is acknowledged as one of the best development drivers around so he's probably coming back because of the new technical rules.
Damn thought they had cancelled the qually today cause of the rain. I really wanna know what was in the ferrari engine last year that they had to take out which meant they went from poles and competitive to thisQualifying was grand, here are the closing stages...
A supreme lap from Hamilton, 1.2s out in front.
Ferrari nowhere to be seen - Leclerc didn't get out of Q2 and is under investigation for 2 separate incidents.
I know it was very mixed conditions, but even so, that quali from George was really excellent!Leclerc has a 3-place penalty (for blocking Kvyat, I don't think there's a decision on not pitting under the red flag yet so it could get worse) so George Russell moves up to 11th on the grid.
