For Ocon, to go to Williams would be a bad option, it would ruin his reputation. Kubi, anyone would fire him with immediate effect, There are no parts and the guy rushes the car into the wall!, twice !!!! but, the Polish petroleum PKN Orlen brings a lot of money, that's why he's here...

"Merco has to explain how they went from a 0.5 sec delay to a 1.2 sec advantage...these guys lie as they breathe lol"

How would they know what Ferrari had in the tank?

Hamilton scores 6 poles in a row in Australia Now lets see if he can win the race.

Sorry, my bad.
In this thread we have been talking about races after they had run.
In the future, I'll wait 24 hours before mentioning other racing series.

It seems that at Merco, engineers themselves are shocked by their performance and did not expect it at all.

However, Ham V had asked V4 if Féfé was running empty (at Catalunya winter testings) and V4 replied "no" ! . .


That's why V4 feels cheated and extremely surprised because they talked to each other. Look at V4's head on the videos, stunned and scrutinizing his demon, the new terror of the circuits, W10.

Let's wait for the other circuits to see....

Ham 8 poles but "only" 2 victories, 2008, 2015, V4 3.

watch post #3486, stats: winners since the pole position in the last 10 editions: 3 ; if Ham V win tomorrow, it will be a new exploit, Albert Park is particular and with these new front wings so large, 2 meters, carbon will fly...VSC, SC ...

Agreed, maybe by the 4th race we will know just how had the best car coming in to the season.

I hope the drivers take into account the wings are wider this season and give a little more room.
Otherwise we will be seeing a lot of Safety Cars.

Toto feeling the heat over the Netflix series:

IMO, Liberty/FIA should have mandated participation.
A lost opportunity for the Sport...

Melbourne historiquement une course avec beaucoup de DNF et un dangereux premier virage
Ham V à 8 pôles sur les mêmes circuits Melbourne, égal à Scumi Suzuka, Senna Imola.
Pas de pénalité de grille mais une pénalité de 5K $ pour Haas et Mc, annonce peu sûre hier
Lumières bientôt ...

The curse of the P1 again, Bobo controls the race, Ham and V skated at the start. And 1st DNF, PU, Mc Carlito

Error of strategy at Merco Féfé for their leaders
Haas Grosjean, the wheel, a 2018 remake, how is possible ?

Doublé Mercedes, brilliant Leclerc, but Féfé is behind The Cans Tech Marketing of Salzburg. All the we, I didn't hear Dr Marko, he is at hospital to care Nikki ? Bobo drove like Ham V to win

But where is Renault ?

The fact that we have a race lap 9 seconds slower than qualifying means we have a problem...

Atypical and hybrid circuit, road and urban. We'll see in Bahrain, but Can Tech surprised me because Maxoo came back like a rocket on V4 and then forgot about it. On the other hand, he couldn't do anything against Ham, the management of Lewis' tyres into more worn tyres was enough to contain him. Ham V was never in danger. The PU W10 is well > whether the Cyclops likes it or not.

Kubi ? If he has honour, and I think, he had to retire himself, 1 lap delay compared only to his teammate, not acceptable

After inspection after the race, Merco discovered the cause of the slow pace of Ham V : damage on the floor located before the LF tyre. A chunk of the floor was missing in this sensitive area. Merco didn't know how and when this arrived, certainly not in Q (you have inspection after Q).

Already instructions at Féfé, Leclerc has clearly said that Féfé has forbidden him to pass V4, keep the positions. Radio Féfé , Leclerc asking if he should stay behind Vettel, "should I stay behind Sebastian? Yes or no?", réponse of Féfé : "Yes and back off to have some margin"

Stroll P16 in Q passed the flag before Perez, P10 in Q, I think Perez is certainly in rage but he will no longer be able to impale his teammate's car as he used to do with Ocon. I hope he is enough intelligent to understand that...

A piece of rubber maybe?

From a team POV, it was the right thing to do.
Nothing could be worse than to start a war at the very first race.

No, carbon. And a piece of carbon was found (coincidence ?) caught in Giovi's front wing.

A message from Bottas:
http://gptoday.com/full_story/view/6...ern_f_youquot/
I guess he earned the right.

RB shouldn't count their chickens before they hatch:
http://gptoday.com/full_story/view/6..._cheeky_tweet/
Hamilton had a damaged car and Ferrari....who knows.
What is really important was Bottas' pace; RB wasn't close.

Ferrari excuses:
http://gptoday.com/full_story/view/6..._Ferrari_woes/
Balance wasn't right blah blah blah, no kidding Sherlock.

On this subject, Ferrari of V4, one of the opinions here about his pace, is that he had a PU problem, the red lights were flashing too long, he didn't have high speeds in a straight line and the pit asked him to switch to strat safe. It would be because of this that the Maxoo rocket completely forgot about him by overtaking .
