Here is Hamilton's replacement at Mercedes for next year.

I'll say this.
He has an F-1 name lol

I dont see how Leclerc & Stroll didnt get a penalty for making contact on purpose during P3.

I can only assume that F-1 is desperate to have a close points race with Verstappen so they didnt want to penalize Leclerc. Meaning they then couldnt penalize Stroll. I dont know. The people making these decisions are dumb in my opinion.

The dog and pony show known as F-1 has been getting progressively worse. They are inconsistent, incredibly biased, and a bunch of greedy, protective, and incestuous jackasses that would cut of their own noses off just for something to do.

F1 this year has been getting progressively better. You don’t have much clue who’s going to win qualifying right now, and you have no clue who’s going to win the race based on qualifying. Right now 4 teams are really quite close with RB hanging on to the top spot.

Sometimes a blind squirrel finds a nut. After a Norris-Verstappen late collision/mishap, Russell and Mercedes take the F-1 Race in Austria.

The whole time I watched it. I am getting the feeling that Verstappen gets away with more than the average bear. Nothing was even noted, until after they both had blown tires.

Doesnt seem like Verstappen is used to be on the defensive anymore.

Was definitely good news for the rest of the field though.
I think this was the 1st time in a very long time you didnt see any red bull on the podium.
Also glad to Leclerc place outside the points.
Kudos for Riccardo & Haas placing in the points.

Yep. I agree, Schmoopy. Verstappen is such a baby and the F-1 numbnuts cater to his whims. When there is competition, the racing becomes better and more exciting. Since Stewart-Haas announced dissolution and Haas returning solely as Haas Factory Team, Haas's F-1 endeavor is improving. Now if we can get the F-1 douchebags real drunk so they approve Andretti's bid, then F-1 may get even better.

I wonder if Mercedes has finally turned a corner?

Things are looking up. I may get to do a proper victory lap tomorrow in Panzerwagon.

He’s probably got millions of reasons not to worry about it too much. I think it’s not gonna bother him too much one way or another because he’ll be driving a Ferrari?

Little kids growing up going vroom vroom vroom don’t usually go I’m in a Ford, much more likely they say I am in a Ferrari.

Maybe different in the States but in Europe it’s likely Ferrari.

Ferrari is iconic to F-1
