    And then leaving Ferrari for Honda with alot of information about our Engine. Great idea..

    Ferrari haven't won a title in 11 years. I wouldn't mind RB winning something with a Ferrari engine, better than total Mercedes domination with no end in view.

    In my opinion Ferrari have been guilty of making too many changes in their designers and technical team in recent years, losing that essential element of continuity and so development suffers. We lost Costa to Merc, then Allison, and only Red Bull has a Newey, Binotto may eventually prove to be a success but I am convinced that stability and direction have been lacking for several years. Honda engines are now taking the fight to Merc at our expense, although our engines are the best part of a flawed concept.

    Ferrari has effectively a B and a C car. Make do.

    They need to change the formula.
    They would do it in a heartbeat if we were endlessly winning

    Seems Mercs have been treated extraordinarily well the last few years.

    They will change it once ferrari’s amd Schumis records are broken....
    I'm hoping that the SF1000 proves to be a championship winning car, maybe even a BEAST!!!

    Ferrari need to have more faith in their top people aka designers, engineers etc.
    Instead when things go badly they look for a scapegoat.......often the wrong decision. We are continually employing new people for key positions. Surely they should be the stable long term well respected staff who bring strength and continuity to the team.
    We don't see Merc or RB doing that although some of their staff jump ship or are head hunted!!!

    When you have an official Beta team and a third team that works with you, results are expected. You definitely do not need a client team that right now is beating you.

    Work with the teams you have, make better use, get results. Build on them. Rinse, repeat.

    Seems it’s similar to 2019 cars at first look. Not an expert though to do detailed analysis.

    Back to 2019, where there's Charles there's hope ! There's still 1/2 a 2019 season left for Ferrari to do some winning and podiums. Lewis, Max, Charles and Seb make F-1 still great racing for all to watch. Forget 2020, 2021 for now, there's still daylight shining in 2019! Honda is willing to take whatever penalties, to go with another new engine this season. They want that #1 spot big time! No waiting for next year.

    Plenty to play for 2nd half of the season.F1 is a funny sport a couple of dnfs from mercedes a few wins from other teams will spice it up big time.I expect the butler will make life difficult for Lewis no more Mr nice guy the butler knows he will probably be replaced at the end of the season he might as well go out in a blaze of glory and be remembered as a true fi driver or remain a man who polished Lewis Hamilton's shoes man up butler.

    Very interesting post. Who do you think would be the replacement for Bottas?

    It would appear that Ham is getting his way and Ocon is likely to replace Hulk at Renault. Apparently Toto doesn't want to have to deal with another Ham/Rosburg like camp and prefers the quiet life with Bot.
    Merc have not made a statement though

    Well said R Bradley ! Toto has to know Lewis want's Bottas with him. Bottas is right up there with the top drivers even if it's mostly his car and all it cost to keep him calm is a few poles going his way. If Lewis messes up a race Bottas is a sure possibility to get the flag. They look good to go for 2020. Driver wise so is Ferrari if they just let the boys race in peace, either one in the #1 spot will do the trick. The cars are still a mystery as far as getting them right.

    2019 F1 news/rumours

    On this day in 1997 at the Belgian GP Schumacher showed his supremacy both when it comes to strategy and driving skill. For those who want to relive this here is a link. The audio is broken up but the video speaks for itself.

    That would be great today! Have a spare car set up for the unexpected. Charles today might well have 2 wins!

    Appears what Lewis wants Lewis gets.Mercedes do not want a driver that upsets the golden child or any who can stall his charge to breaking every f1 record on the planet.Bottas the butler is this non disruptive partner.Bottas has a lot of Hamilton's shoes that need polishing yet.

    Well said. Be it the car or car & driver it sure looks like every record will belong to Lewis . At least no one can deny whatever Bottas does willingly or not all the time, the results are wins and records coming to an end. There is no doubt there at Merc who should be the #1, and who should be the#2 driver. Just look at how confusing it iis @ Ferrari. A rookie giving better results when allowed than the 4x WDC. And Seb is truly not to blame. Car wise Lewis gets what he needs and asks for. Lets hope the second 1/2 goes Ferrari's way with either driver winning a few.

    The story, which I didn't quite believe at first was that Toto asked Ham who he would like as
    a team mate. Obvious I should think as Ocon for sure would make Ham's wins less safe.........memories of the boys in pink last season still make me smile. I guess when Seb was asked the same question he said kimi so ferrari went for Charles. If team boss I would do the same. Ham is always on about preferring a challenge well not in his own team I guess. I have nothing against Bottas and believe that given exactly same car and strategy he could beat ham any day of the week. I just wish he would get into Rosburg mode and give it his all.

    Rumors say that Ferrari will go in the direction of Red Bull's car philosophy for 2020. A shorter wheelbase and higher rake.

    No where to really post this, thought everyone would like a laugh LOL

    Maldonado "expected" to join Ferrari after 2013 talks

    "“I was the only one, I was the new guy in F1,” Maldonado said in an interview with F1’s Beyond The Grid podcast.

    It’s like [Max] Verstappen at the moment".
