golden boy not getting penalty points is killing this sport..hamilton is driver and he should know the rules. the car cannot be driven from the pit! and he is not equal with m.schumacher. 60+wins hybrid time mercedez is not that good achievement because he is getting always more power or more something.kimi is king. bottas is just another driver.
 
Are you really crying about that? Daniel didn't even finish ahead of Perez, not even close actually. But I guess you do not have an excuse for that right?

Bottas talking **** on the radio, like this victory wasn't handed to him, as if he won on pure merit. He didn't even have the balls to overtake Hamilton on T2, he was ahead and let him go, said a "bee" ruined his overtake. Pathetic.

your comments shows that you are not clear with f1 aerodynamics.
just continue with the sledge
 
Whatever about the Mercs I think the mid field is really interesting at the moment. It looks like there are a lot of cars that can compete with each other between 3rd and 10th positions. Good to See Ricciardo in a more competitive car.
 
Another farce with Lewis Hamillton and AMG-Mercedes. Team told him to do practice start to set bite for clutch somewhere near on the end of pitlane. Team personnel are supposed to be intelligent educated people. He did another on track that was also dangerous. The rule was to give back Lewis 2 penalty points and fine team for telling him to do something dangerous on track. Lewis has to be on his best best behaviour if he looses more points he can be banned for 1 or more races. This could give tittle to Bottas or Verstappen.

They removed those 2 points they gave him yesterday. Final penalty for yesterday is: 2x5sec for Hamilton (done in race) + pocket money fine for Merc. No penalty points for anyone.
And ban goes for one race if it happens, which will not happen. As same with any driver in last few years as soon as someone is close to 12 they avoid giving points to them. ;)

Do you ever look at Vettel and think, what if he never won those 4 WC, would anybody even care about him today? Just a driver who makes a lot of mistakes like that spin in quali..

That greatly depends of what you think happens in 2010-2013... Is he in RB? Is RB car that it was in those years?
For me, I would care if he is on the grid sure. I still care for Hulk more than for 55-80% of this grid.

Same as Hamilton doing crap in the Maclaren between his 1st championship and moving to Merc?

In those years Hamilton was 5th, 4th, 5th. 4th, 4th

Vettel since his last championship was 5th, 3rd, 4th, 2nd, 2nd, 5th, Not bad considering that was during the Merc dominance.

And I'm no Vettel fan, he's a weird German...hot headed, not something I'd associate with a German, pretty calm, calculating people normally IMO.

I'm no Vettel fan, but it seems to me that the Ferrari is 'difficult' to drive. I'm more into MotoGP personally, and have ridden various motorcycles on track. From my very limited experience some bikes 'feel good' and talk to you, some (one of mine I didn't enjoy on track) don't. Obvs I could just ride at whatever pace I wanted, it was for fun, but I suspect sometimes cars/bikes just don't gel with a particular style/driver/rider. They have to push on anyway (they get paid ok) and that means it can look like they've lost their speed/mojo/talent. I am interested to see how he goes at Racing Point.

A Monkey can do the job in other words 6 or 7 of the grid can wdc with that car. If merc have balls.. put Russel in that car or Max or Norris or Ricardo, Le clerce
Russel learned what he knows about driving from Lewis. He has said this numerous times, and if you are unaware of this fact then you just don't know. Verstappen can't do a simple drive to the grid on a wet track without crashing. Norris is cool, and Ricciardo is a great driver. Leclerc is talented but he's not the driver that Hamilton is as a whole. I mean he's managed to take out both Ferrari s in a race. I would take Vettel over Leclerc in a heartbeat. The fact is that Mercedes always wanted Lewis and only Lewis in that car.
