This is like another season break honestly!

{Ed001's Note - it is a long gap. I have a feeling that they will put more races in for next season so there won't be the gaps. Though we will then have the drivers whining about how hard it is for the poor dears. Strange how they find one race weekend every couple of weeks such hard work but other racing drivers will drive about 20 races a day at Goodwood. In the 60s etc the drivers would be doing multiple race series a year and so jumping from car to car. They never found it to be too mentally tiring and it was much more physical then without power steering. Modern day drivers are spoilt.}

It does seem in sports the more money involved the more prima Donnas we get.
But I bet the rookies wouldn't complain racing every week.

{Ed001's Note - exactly and what do the drivers do the moment they retire from F1? They go and join as many other racing series as they can! I do have a lot of sympathy with the mechanics and engineers who actually do work incredibly long hours and very hard. But not the drivers.}

Yea I've heard the mechanics and engineers don't get to enjoy the country's they're at, from the day they arrive till the end of race on Sunday it's build the garage etc then dismantle it.
Its really nice to see Lando and George help with the dismantle to feel closer to the team.

{Ed001's Note - those two I like a lot as drivers because they do build a relationship with the engineers. That is something Hamilton did very well too, it is part of the edge he has over the rest, the garage wants him to win on a personal level. Unlike some others in recent years, such as Fernando Alonso.}

Only other person Incan think of that the engineers feel that way about is Danny ric.

{Ed001's Note - Schumacher snr was another.}

Hopefully Schumacher jnr is the same, it's easier to like a driver when they seem more down to earth less prima Donna like.

{Ed001's Note - agreed, I think that is why so many people hate Hamilton because they think he is flash. Image plays a big part and his is aimed at the USA.}

Aren't most elite athletes flash though mate? I think the hate towards Hamilton is more to do with the fact that he keeps winning and that riles people for some reason.
The most normal bloke on the whole grid, atleast from what I see on TV seems to Danny ric.
Personally, I love Kimi. Dude has hilarious radio conversations😂.

{Ed001's Note - you may have a point there truered. I am with you on those.}
