F1 nowadays is like a VW Golf GTI try to catch a Porsche on the Autobahn(Freeway):)
Mercedes is too strong for all the others;) Like Fernando Alonso once said. Equal engines for everybody. Period

It is incentive for the other guys to 'up' their game isn't it.
We found out a few years ago that Ferrari are handed $100m just to show up.
Maybe they ought to buy some strategist with some of that 'free' money.
I'm not going to knock Mercedes for their success.
Sure, they're some teams who struggle with limited budgets....but look at Force India from a few years back.
They had one of the smallest budgets, the principal was under constant threat of arrest...and yet they were consistently high in the Championship.
Much better showings can be had with the right people in the right positions.
It can be done.

We went out to the Kart track and had fun this morning so we watched the recording of the F1.

Watched the first lap, mildly exciting for 3 corners.

Fast forward on x20 until pitstops. Nothing to see here.

Fast Forward until the end of the Safety Car, watch the restart. Ho hum.

Fast forward until the end, nothing changed.

Summary: Hamilton reacted faster than Botas, Verstappen is better than his car, Vettel is now trying too hard. The end.

F1 needs a real shake-up to make it an actual competition and race.

A few laps to go and there was only 10 seconds or so between 1st and 5th place, the coverage showed the crowd leaving, tells you everything you need to know.

If you ask me the grid could do with another 10 cars on it. As an event it’s flat.

Nobody. F1 has become such a snorefest, I really don't know why I watch it anymore. Maybe it is just a habit.
Clearly missed all the intense fighting among the midfield cause way too focussed on a battle between Mercedes-Ferrari-Red Bull that just isn't going to happen.

It's a trendy fad to trash Kivyat, but he's had a good season so far.
Toast mentioned he's impressed with the driver's performance, and again some very good moves today.
Verstappen has become reliable podium. One of the best all-round drivers now.

Wasn't a great race to watch overall.

Seriously Max? Verstappen didn't do much this race... Got lucky that Ferrari did an oopsie again strategy wise... I don't get it how he has such massive fanboys that vote for him no matter what.
For the driver of the day, I don't like Hamilton, but he was great today.

To be honest my favourite Driver died a long time ago:( Jo Siffert was the greatest Driver of all time for me. Nowadays I dont have a favourite Driver so you absolutely miss my point;) but what else I should expect of a guy like you. Huuh;) And why you hating on Max???....at least in his case he is faster than his car. I think everybody should respect that. And by the way Boby is written with two B's;)
