Chinese Grand Prix Discussion Thread (2).jpg

Welcome to the central discussion thread for the 2019 FIA Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.


The 1000th Grand Prix in the history of Formula One - the Shanghai International Circuit plays host to the third round of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship this weekend - and the field of drivers have plenty to play for following an exciting start to the new season.

Despite the 1000th race celebrations set to take place over the weekend, the serious business of Grand Prix racing remains, and Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will be keen to fight back following a difficult result last time out in Bahrain.

Can Mercedes keep up the current results? Will Ferrari finally fight back? Are Red Bull able to mount a serious challenge? All these questions and more could be answered this weekend..

After 2 practise sessions it shows the gap on top is smaller. Looking at the longruns I vote for Max, without orange glasses!:laugh:

To be fair, you would vote Max even if he was driving last year's McLaren :thumbsup:

Still thinking that Williams is sandbagging. They will win the 1000th race of F1 in style, with Kubica and Russel lapping the whole field twice.

Not surprisingly, SV will "continue to get priority as #1 for Ferrari" MB has reiterated today.

I'm sure he'll find his form / right setup very soon, this is a class driver it goes without saying.

Honestly, at this point of the season the teams shouldn't have a number 1 and a wingman. For like the first 5 to 7 races, it should simply be the faster one being prioritized each weekend. If it's always the same guy fine, you have your team order. If not, like with Mercedes right now, simply let them race.

This whole discussion around Vettel and Leclerc and who's faster and who's better and who has a more realistic shot at the WDC is really annoying right now.
