ed001, what do you make of Vettles move to Aston/ racing point?

He is obviously a bigger name then perez, but the way he has been treated, being axed by text is a bit sour for me. Perez has done well in the merc of last year and deserved better imo. Obviously Stroll is safe as houses with his dad as the owner and if he wasn't that lucky he would be the one to go.

Plus vettle looks to have lost his mojo so I think I would of stuck with perez personally.

{Ed001's Note - it does look like a huge mistake. Though he might well rediscover his fire with the way he is being treated by Ferrari. That is their only hope really, is that he is driven by bitterness. Other than that, it looks a crazy decision. For both parties to be honest. Why would you want to join a team owned by the father of your teammate? He is clearly going to be favoured with better equipment and get the pick of the strategies etc.

It must be pointed out, Perez was only there initially because of the sponsorship he brings with him, which gave them money to go racing. So he was always likely to be pushed out of the door once they no longer needed that money.}

Didn’t know that about Perez, but it’s a shame he's leaving he’s doing wonders for my fantasy f1 team so hope it doesn’t effect him.

I think vettle has been broken by merc and Hamilton. I feel that Aston want him for the name and he’s gone as it’s the best offer he was going to get. I do think it’s destined for tears. And I can’t see them competing much higher up the grid then their current efforts.

As for Perez wonder where he will end up, potentially Indy which seems to be where a host of past f1 drivers end up.

{Ed001's Note - someone will take Perez as he brings good sponsorship. Good driver too, so he is not just a pay driver unlike some.}

I don't know where is available though ed001, I think it was only Haas and alfa that have space and he is better then that. Itll be a shape if he has to take a drop down the grid at the expense of vettle.

Hopefully vettle proves me wrong and he is a success. Personally I think he will be battling with Mclaren for the best of the rest behind red bull next season.

{Ed001's Note - both Ferrari-engined teams, which is a bit of a problem as that is the worst engine now they have blocked off the avenue for them to cheat. However with him being backed by Carlos Slim's billions, he could turn them into a competitive team.}

Anyone see the incidents in P1? a loose drain cover destroying the williams, then a bridge having the audacity to get in the way of the recovery truck, then pouring its hydraulic fluid all over the Williams?

Luckily we can laugh about them but the drain cover could of caused serious injury!

{Ed001's Note - that is madness, but it is what happens with street circuits. They have to have special covers to cope with the downforce ripping them up.}

Don't they normally weld them? either way just glad the driver got away ok. Can't say the same for the car.

On a seperate note, when are you managing to get away from editing to see Endgame? I am off to see it tonight but the hardest part will be not being able to talk about it for a few weeks to avoid spioling it for others!

{Ed001's Note - they do, but it weakens over time. It is just a part of street racing the added dangers, but that is why they are so exciting.

I saw Endgame last night mate. Unfortunately it started just as I thought 'I need a pee' and I spent the next 3 hours trying not to wet meself! It hurt so much by the end, I am just glad there is no end title sequence so I could run for the bog the second they started!!!}

Alonso has the second part of his triple crown, just Indy left. I would love to see him win the f1 championship again but think he will leave the sport at the end of the year which would be a shame. Can’t blame him though, he is a quality driver who wants to win races.

The way he drove today makes it look like he has had enough and wants out.


2.) 29 Jun 2018 16:16:39
Just seen this ed001, i'm of the same opinion that he is off at the end of the season which is gutting. But I think he will go full time indy and try be a super triple crown winner,
F1 champ,
Endurance champ
Indy champ (and winning indy500 in the process).

{Ed001's Note - I think you are right, I think he will try and win all 3 world titles.}

I know this will never happen but for me Bahrain proved that re-fuelling needs to return to the sport.
Firstly I understand it’s about safety but Ferrari proved accidents can happen, so as long as re-fuelling was done to minimise risk to both drivers and mechanics this shouldn’t be an issue.

It adds an element of drama to pit stops as it is something teams can get wrong and cost drivers seconds.
But my most important reason and why Bahrain showed re-fuelling should make a return is because of the strategy. Just like in boxing where styles make fights it’s the same for statergies.

That race was only exciting because Vettel and bottas had different plans, if Ferrari had always planned a one stop and put him on the mediums it would of been a boring procession as usual.
But as there was an element of tyre degradation there was an element of what if and the race victory wasn’t decided until the last lap.
Currently cars struggle to overtake so adding re-fuelling adds a different element and more strategy to the sport.
Like I said I know it won’t happen but yesterday’s race was the best in a long time and that was largely down to differing statergies.
