    OK! Let Charles race to win. Seb will not allow it! I believe anything to pass the time between races other than talking about wrong tires and their colors.

    Exactly ! That's why Charles should never be held back for the former R Bull legend. During a race is bad enough, now even quali. is being messed with! Seb just needs a little more down force , better tire choices, better steering, more braking power, and less fuel, and yeah; he will be back on top for sure !

    It isn't Vettel's fault that Leclerc crashed into the wall in Baku. Even without crashing, there is no guarantee he would have outqualified Seb. Charles was faster in practice but past 11 years have proved that Seb's best lap comes in Q3.

    Now Seb has to continue those Q3 best laps @ Ferrari! First yr. in his Ferrari ride and 21 yrs. old and Charles is being compared 1 on 1 with Seb. A big compliment weather it's meant to be or not.

    After Nico retired, Hamilton got a lot of perks. I believe he got the veto perk too.

    Right. It's the team's fault they put the both of them on the wrong tire. Leclerc crashed and Vettel nearly crashed. Leclerc was faster up to his crash. The difference is that Vettel knows he can't trust the boneheads to put him on the right tire. Leclerc is just starting to learn of the rampant incompetence that plagues the team.

    Bottom line is Vettel is not spanking Leclerc like so many thought he would.

    That's why they replaced Kimi because Kimi wasn't pushing Seb at all. Charles is a quick driver and will only improve. All I want to see is that team gets its act together in Canada so both drivers can solely focus on driving.

    That's what we all want but the incompetence shown by the team at the tracks so far needs a good shake-up and some of the workload taken away from Binotto so that he can concentrate on the technical side and the drivers given the opportunity to do their job with equal billing.

    It’s other way around lot of them thought Lec would spank vettel. Just like DR vs Vettel 2014.
    Even before start of season, it was reminded like 2014 season for vettel.
    But it isn’t. Now that Lec is also faster, vettel is giving the extreme in quali so that he can stay ahead & still the best.

    Bahrain was the only race Seb was slower, in other races Seb had the margin over Leclerc. And with Canada ahead, which is probably a track which suit Seb, he should be still ahead. Have a good feeling that we could fight for the pole there.

    If vettel gets pole or stay ahead of Lec, there are few of them calling team did a conspiracy in stopping Lec taking the pole or staying ahead of vettel.
    Unfortunately this will be the case of discussion in every race this season.
    Also we are not fighting with mercs, there’s no point of discussion on them. Wts left is vettel vs Lec, that’s it.

    That was a cracking season atleast there is other rival from other team who’s fighting for WDC. Kimi.
    So it’s straight battle between kimi vs ham vs Alonso... In fact massa was there too couple of times.

    Regarding team manager Rob help to ham .. yeah I think it’s down to Alonso where he’s given ultimatum to Mclaren for not giving him preferential treatment. Which resulted him to do some tactics like controversial pit stop during quali.
    But to me Alonso was the best in that era with Ham & vettel.
    Only problem with him is his ego, if he would have made right choices at right time. Then by now he’s atleast 4 time WDC.
    I feel sad for him, at the same time it’s a lesson for other drivers too.

    One correction, the Hungarian pit stop drama that you mentioned, it was Hamilton who started it by disobeying team instructions by not letting Alonso through for his qualifying run which resulted in retaliation

    "Leclerc no happy and wants to leave....Vettel's retiring after this year"...simply hilarious.

    I wouldn't pay too much attention. This is simply click-bait attempt, nothing else. These folks too often just make stuff up or are getting their info from bad sources who themselves make it up.

    Formula 1 has become a boring Mercedes snoozefest so they have to resort to this to still make it somewhat interesting. Worse time in F1 history right now folks, sorry to say it.

    I agree. Almost all the F1 races this season have been deathly boring. I am not an indycar fan but tonight I watched the Detroit indycar race at my friends house and wow it was 100x more enjoyable than all 2019 F1 races so far! Good racing and very unpredictable. Totally unlike the Formula Mercedes bore

    Totally agree but I think or rather hope its only media hype.
    I think its all linked to Flavio being employed by Ferrari to manage the team and who would he love to have with him.............his favourite Alonso!!!!
    All hype to try and keep us interested.

    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.
