    Easy pass for Bottas on vettel.
    Lec should pot after couple of laps. Vettel have mediums under him, don’t know why they kept him out still. His hard tyres are gone

    It's pretty clear we have a top notch mid field contender in the form of a prancing jalopy. 2019 was an exciting season and a very promising 2020 championship coming up (sarcasm)...

    Look at the grandstands and then spot how much grey you see and then how much red.

    F1 is a soulless corporate entity that only races in countries where the people don't care nowadays. Getting the stands filled to the brim in Europe, make customer cars legal and allow for three cars per team and that new series would be viable as a European/American alternative to the farcial crap that's F1 today.

    The Max fans are only there for him and if he's convinced to join the new series F1 would look as deserted as a Qatari sporting event. Us no longer being there for the Grands Prix would be a game-changer.

    Look at this forum... There used to be tens... sometimes hundreds of pages in each race thread.

    Ferrari are playing dumbness, they secured the 2nd in WCC, they don't care about the WDC. Prize money is base on WCC standing.

    Internet forums and F1 as a sport are out of fashion. All I know is that the European/Western World races are still rather packed. The others aren't, except Singapore. F1's expansion eastward has backfired royally and Liberty Media are only making it worse by adding what the hell events like Vietnam.

    Not having a race in Germany except on brief occasions is disgraceful. Just one race in Italy is disastrous. Continuing to threaten Silverstone and Spa... this can't go on forever until the bubble collapses. Who's going to want to watch 25 races of this on all the weird timezones in the world? Really?

    F1 worked when it was a 16/17-race scheduled dominated by European tracks. Bernie and the FIA got greedy and destroyed the sport with the expansion and all the gimmicks with tyres, DRS etc. Merely going back to a 1998-like schedule and simplify the points system would boost F1 a LOT.

    It's time for Ferrari to go our own way and least go out swinging with our own series.

    Would leave the FIA in the dust for good.
    You have my vote. Anything to stay clear of totalitarian FIA F1.

    I would rather watch SG GP again than Vietnam or Korea r any asian venue... SG is money's worth before and while racing and after the GP there's concert with a famous band.

    Probably more fans would have shown up here if Ferrari were winning some WDC/WCC lately...

    I think we really lost our engine advantage. remember when we were untouchable on straights even when others had DRS? all that is gone....sadly.

    Hamiltons fl on super old tyres. Our car is just garbage compared to theirs. You can't compete with that. How is that even possible?
