    exactly , this guy even trash talked the indy500 drivers questioning their talent and now calls it luck & not talent for Seb, when Douche44 has had the luck of driving the no.1 car the past few years. So very very glad Rosberg won last year

    But as far as I remember we did extensive wet tier test for pirelli, it must count for something

    yup....We shall see if Bottas slows Vettel up while Lewis plays catch-up; if it rains, anything is pretty much up in the air.

    totally different car from 2016 to 2017 so to make a comparison, IMO, is pointless.

    My map (weatherchannel) says like a 5% chance around that time.....sooo hopefully, we look to have a dry track.

    Well said. Only guy I think can get close to the Great MS is Max. We should have him. He is rough around the edges, but he is good. He is fast. He is like Schumi in some ways. You guve him a sniff and he is on you like white on rice.

    Max is the most natural talented driver on the grid but hes very inconsistent and loses to many points with silly collisions

    Yes, I agree with you, but I think its because he is young. When he is about 22 or 23, he will be one of the best. He is so good in the wet and he is like spicy arabiata! He can be duche, maybe little arrogant, ok very arrogant sometimes, but very good. I see why Red Bull promoted him.

    Most(majority) of his point loss this year have been DNF's (mechanical failures). I think Alonso has more pts than him just from the Baku finish.

    I also think Horner has matured as well....que/rollback 2014/2015 when he threw Renault under the bus ranting and raving.....NOW, the man is silent and have'nt heard one peep

    about this or that having to do with Renault reliability.

    “I believe there is a bit of rain coming tomorrow at noon so it should be interesting and not that straight forward,” he said. “Lewis will try to come up the ranks as well so it will be exciting.” - Ric

    If it rains, I doubt Kimi will finish atleast.
    Generally he's not good on wet track.
    For me king of wet racing definetly MS. Later Alonso, then button, Vettel
    Recently got admired to mad max of skills on wet track.
