Scratch that he's disqualified.

Terrible luck foe Vettel. AM screwed up. Williams just about saved i hear.

{Ed001's Note - that is a shame for Vettel.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 21:09:04
Heard vettel and a few others are facing foul of the 1l fuel rule . uh oh.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 16:26:29
Good race after the incident. Great to see Ocon and Vettel up there. Alonso though, definitely prevented Hamilton attacking the front 2. I say Alonso in a top car is still top 3 driver in the grid.

{Ed001's Note - that was good racing, but I fail to see a difference in what Alonso did to what Hamilton did last time, other than Hamilton had the sense to avoid him, whereas Verstappen just drove into him. Both should have just been left as racing incidents, it is what the sport is about to me.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Im not so sure we can compare. Different tracks with different characteristics. Different points in the race. Max has has grown up a lot in the last few years. But he is still only 23. Lewis was also very aggressive and 100% earlier in his career. With more experience, Max would learn when to back off, when to not back off. Right now, in his mind driving is giving it absolutely everything every time in a battle no backing down. Might be his downfall this season.

{Ed001's Note - I am not having a go at Max for it, I have no problem with what happened, it was racing. Just that I am saying it is harsh to penalise Hamilton for that when it was so similar and nothing will be done to Alonso. After all the whining Red Bull did, it was clear Alonso deliberately cut Hamilton off, whereas Hamilton looked to back out of his move, so why penalise him? It should be just get on with it and let us enjoy them racing wheel to wheel, accepting that sometimes there will be a crash.}

How bad can Bottas be that bad in the rain. Destroyed what should have been a fantastic race in wet. gutted for Leclerc and Checo.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 14:11:40
How bad can Bottas be that bad in the rain. Man has experi Destroyed what should have been a fantastic race in wet.

{Ed001's Note - you could see he was going to take out Norris a mile away.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 14:18:10
My rage typing has eaten away at my words lol. Meant to say i thought Bottas has rallying experience driving in the wet.
Mate he has absolutely destroyed Mclarens race. I think he just saw Lando get away beautifully and Checo on the outside too and just couldn't handle the pressure. on the positive we'll have some new drivers on the podium hopefully.

{Ed001's Note - he defo blew it and now Lando is out as well because of his idiocy. He just tried to make up time after making such a huge error on the start.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 15:29:39
Wow what a start Horner trying his best with Masi.

{Ed001's Note - would you give Hamilton a penalty?}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 15:51:27
Not sure 1st lap and all that after the penalty it could be a Dream for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - I would love Lando to win.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 16:02:21
All seem's to have calmed down. Maybe the pit stop's will change a few things.

{Ed001's Note - disappointing when they start looking after tyres like this as nothing happens.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 16:06:00
Agreed maybe trying to advantage of Hamiltons penalty. Le clerc in trouble good chance for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - Leclerc's issue could make it exciting.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 16:16:32
Bad pit stop for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - nearly ruined his day.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 17:04:35
Wow what a finish then. Did Perez do the same to Raikanon.

{Ed001's Note - I was thinking that. It looked similar.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 17:11:42
I think hamilton deserved the penalty. He had enough space to hit the apex in that corner. Nevertheless drove brilliantly after that.
Hopefully Max is ok.
As a Ferrari fan, would have loved to see Leclerc win.
As a Check fan though disappointed. He needs to do better.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 19:54:45
What happened with Perez / Raikonen.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2021 11:00:15
Ed what was your opinion on the turn one incident? I thought Hamilton had plenty of space on the right to move if he wanted. But at the same time he didn't really run Max off the road. tough one.

{Ed001's Note - for me Hamilton was on the limit, on the onboard pictures he looks only slightly offline and there was plenty of space for Verstappen to go round him. I would say both were at fault, Hamilton had gone in hard taken a chance and so took a chance, Max was too aggressive in trying to cut him off and drove into him doing so. For me that is a racing incident and so, if anything, a ten-second penalty is a bit harsh, but you have to accept, if you are Hamilton, that you did have a part to play in Verstappen ending up in the wall and move on. By the same token, Max needs to grow up and realise that he has a big lead in the championship and should be thinking of that and being more cautious. Give a bit more room as you have more to lose.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2021 09:09:18
I don't know if they take it into consideration but I thought the 10 seconds was fair.

The red flag effectively gave hamilton a free pit stop to fix the car due to the incident. If the race wasn't red flagged I think it would of been called a racing incident as Hamilton would have been penalised enough having to pit to fix the cars damage.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 11:02:35
What did people make of the sprint race? Personally I thought it was too long. And effectively became a procession as per the races.

All the action was in the first few laps. So I'd make it a 5 to 7 lap race. The cars would have barely any fuel, could all stick on the softs and push the cars and tyres to the absolute limit. Admittedly wouldn't last long but I think it would have more action then a 17 lap race.

When I looked, the Hass' cars were 40 seconds behind, hardly keeps it interesting.

{Ed001's Note - I got my times mixed up and missed it. Judging by what I read it was not a big miss!}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2021 16:12:13
All excited for the big announcement about 2022 on Thursday at 2pm?

{Ed001's Note - I didn't know there was one! I missed that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2021 20:44:32
F1 YouTube channel Thursday 2pm I believe it's the unveiling of the mock up of the 2022 Cars. I'm excited.

{Ed001's Note - ah right, yeah that would make sense. I will have to try and remember to catch that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2021 19:29:49
I'll try and ping a post to remind you beforehand.

{Ed001's Note - F1 just sent me an email (well it might have been sent hours ago but I have just opened it) to tell me when it is and that it is to reveal the new cars.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 07:17:28
Oooh check you getting emails from F1, masi's best pal eh? 😂.

{Ed001's Note - it is just advertising stuff mate, if only it was more interesting. It is just to keep abreast of rule changes and stuff mainly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 16:09:22
I'm sold on the new car. Looks quite good to be fair. Here's hoping it achieves all that it claims and we see great racing.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 15:54:07
Well that race was more interesting than last week 🤣.

{Ed001's Note - Perez has some questions to answer though, as do the Alpha Tauri drivers. That extra 20hp 'reliability' upgrade Honda made was clear to see in Verstappen's performance, why were the rest unable to make use of it?}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2021 15:05:01
What a qualifying, well done Lando!

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2021 16:43:09
Absolutely brilliant from Lando. George aswell getting that Williams to Q3. Gutted for Alonso though, his weekend is completely ruined.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 07:35:26
Definitely I forgot about Russel due to to my Lando haze lol.
On mediums no less! Has to be a shoe in for the Merc job!

{Ed001's Note - I am really excited to see what Russell can do.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 08:41:42
Lando seems to be going from strength to strength.
I expect having a rich father has helped him on his way but there’s no doubting his talents, so best of luck to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2021 15:53:36
Good qualifying that. Lando and Gasly are having the season of their lives. Great to see. We are getting to see Alonso coming back to his best.
What a season this is turning out to be!

{Ed001's Note - I really thought Lando was going to get ahead of Hamilton for a moment.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2021 20:39:06
So mercedes got their way and as of the Hungarian GP no more 2 second pit stops . for safety.
What a joke!
Dr Marko said they were saying RBS's out guns were illegal I thought he was joking!

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen anything on this, what is happening?}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2021 09:32:03
"teams" have complained about the safety of sub 2 second pit stops .
So as of August the pit stops will be slowed down to ensure wheel nuts are safely on .
In other words, the one thing red bull consistently beat Merc on they've complained about.

{Ed001's Note - it is a good point though, I don't think any other racing series allows them to race in the pits any more.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2021 15:51:52
The safety reason is a bit of a farce though. I mean Redbull have never had any issue with safety due to their fast pitstops.

{Ed001's Note - every team has had problems due to rushing, so that's not true.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2021 16:24:10
Well, I enjoyed that race. Max was brilliant wasn't he? Though I'm happy for Checo. feel sad for Bottas, he was totally screwed over by his team. Especially when both drivers knew tyres weren't going to last.
Good to see Danny Ric getting into the groove as well.

{Ed001's Note - it is bizarre that Mercedes were unable to see that it was clear the tyres wouldn't last. Why not bring in Bottas and at least let him have a go at the fastest lap?}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2021 16:50:11
Another impressive performance from Norris as well. At one point he was 12th but worked his way brilliantly up to 5th.

{Ed001's Note - I was surprised they left him out so long, it was looking like a mistake when they did it, but turned out to be a brilliant decision.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2021 16:53:49
Absolutely mate. Mercedes doing bizzare strategy calls. Not listening to Bottas and Lewis here. Also not listening to Lewis in Monaco regarding the setup. They really are messing it up big time.

{Ed001's Note - the lack of 2 stoppers is why the late stop worked for Lando. If the rest 2 stopped, which was clearly faster, they would have got him. They were all so cautious and it cost them. The only team that did go for the 2 was Ferrari and they left it too late to make it work, as they left him out far too long. There is a real lack of risk taking in the field these days.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2021 17:02:06
Yeh some poor merc calls today.

Great drive by Norris and Max but I do question why he wasn’t penalised on open lap for missing turn 1 and not going through the mini chicane on re entry. felt a bit like we can’t do that it will ruin the race call from the FIA.

First entertaining France GP in a long time though. Qudos.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2021 20:48:50
Max wasn't penalised as he made turn 1 it was turn two he fecked.
What a race and what a drive from max!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2021 15:28:07
They was a very entertaining qualifying. Going to be a good battle tomorrow between mercedes and redbull.
On a side note, Sainz with a brilliant lap.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 16:23:41
I really have no idea what to say about that race. Apart from the annoyance of the channel I was watching it on constantly losing signal and missing some of the best bits, it was just insane. How does Hamilton end up last when he had it? And Vettel coming 2nd?

One thing that did stand out for me is how slow race control were to react to the two crashes. Immediately they happened it was blatantly obvious it needed to be a safety car immediately, yet they took ages to put out the safety car both times. What on earth was the hold up? It was the two clearest and most obvious safety cars I have ever seen.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 19:47:56
Crazy end to the race Ed. Maybe it was just fatigue with Hamilton, making an error like that. Always easy in hindsight but why take the risk when 2nd place would have put him ahead of Max in the standings.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, he didn't look to be taking a risk, he looked to have it under control and braked in plenty of time. The car just didn't slow down.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 19:53:24
Those crashes mate, phew. At 300kph, i'm just glad both came out unscathed.
It's the most disappointing for Max though. He ran a perfect race up until tyre decided to blow up.
The podium was super though. Checo coming into his own, holding of Hamilton for so long. amazing drive. Great to see Seb so happy too.

{Ed001's Note - they were proper crashes them! So good to see both drivers completely unscathed afterwards.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 22:53:32
That race was everything I had hoped for in Baku! , Hamilton accidentally hitting the "magic" button was absolutely unexpected.

{Ed001's Note - it is so rare he makes a mistake, it really is a genuine shock when it happens.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2021 17:12:27
Drama filled but not entertaining that quali there. Lots of drivers unlucky to not be able to get in their 2nd laps. Ofcourse it's great to see Leclerc on pole. Hopefully he can translate it onto the race.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 10:54:15
People are saying sainz crashed deliberately. what is going on?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 11:40:53
That's funny mate. I dunno, people talk all kinds of rubbish don't they. Tsunoda pretty much cancelled the session with his crash.
What's going on with Tsunoda though. Pressure of F1 seems to be getting to him. He needs to knuckle down and work double hard now to fulfil his potential.

{Ed001's Note - I think being made to move closer to the team is not helping. It means he is in the middle of settling into a completely new life while trying to get an F1 career off the ground. It can't be helpful.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 12:27:41
Interesting mate. Wouldn't it be ideal if he moves closer to the team though. Maybe doing it during the season is the issue. I think this season is a bedding in season for him to iron out issues. Hopefully we have him at peak performance next season. There are 4 redbull juniors waiting in F2 for a chance. Next season could be make or break for him.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure it matters if he lives close or not personally. Not many of the other drivers live near their teams.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2021 09:50:04
Baku week!

{Ed001's Note - hopefully it is a good race.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2021 11:52:55
Can't be worse than Monaco.

{Ed001's Note - true.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 18:04:36
Great weekend. Ferrari on the podium. Max brilliant and Checo doing well. Liverpool make it. Couldn't have asked for more.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 22:59:43
I don't see a mention of Lando there! , 🤣.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2021 12:45:40
The next British World Champion?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2021 17:51:17
🤣 Lando did well, but I have my Checo hat on tight and secure.
Seriously though, I agree Lando has been phenomenal this season. Personal view, but I think he has overtaken Russell as the next big British challenger. Russell is stagnating in that awful Williams car.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2021 13:11:38
I agree Lando has surpassed George, the fan fair around him is because he's mercedes and managed by toto.
Lando had the luck of flying under the radar as he was "just a McLaren driver"

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 15:45:48
NORRIS ON THE PODIUM. I REPEAT NORRIS ON THE PODIUM! Yes my house is a McLaren House hold.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 14:01:33
Well Charles does not start. wow.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 14:34:20
Your hunch about the gearbox being knackered turned out to be a major issue it would seem. Looks like they took the risk not to change it, rather than lose the grid places, and it’s backfired.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2021 16:16:09
It's why I said there was absolutely no way he would have done that deliberately, was too much of a risk and a lapse by Charles cost them dearly and helped max and red bull.

Agree0 Disagree0
