    Remember the rumblings that Jean Todt would come back to Ferrari?

    Supposedly, there have been changes within Ferrari that have influenced the probability of Todt's arrival.
    These changes make it highly unlikely that Todt will re-join the Scuderia.

    Just to cheer you up:

    The final Abu Dhabu race resulted in this absolute gem The middle part of the song with the "MICHAEL, TOTO" stand-off slaps like crazy!

    Just got it randomly recomended after being out of F1 for 3 weeks, its so good It will never get old!

    Just been reading an article that states merc dropped their appeal under the premise that the FIA sack Michael Masi and one other person. It also says the FIA must do this to avoid hamilton taking a sabbatical. They have of course denied any such deal or conversation took place.

    I understand "Mikey no no " Masi has been inconsistent.
    But, to sack him just to appease Lewis?
    Now, there's some spoilt spoilt-brat ***** right there!

    This is a good opportunity for Hamilton to retire, perfect excuse. He goes out of F1 at the top and doesn't have go up against Russel who could give him more of a run than Bottas and tarnish his reputation.

    I love how all the butt-hurt ham fans pretend that Wolff didn’t beg Masi not to send out the saftey car. He was trying to influence the race. He has been the first one on the phone with Masi throughout the year influencing decisions that will help Hamilton, also sending emails to Masi etc. Now he, his wife and countless delusional ham fans want to say that F1 lacks credibility? They have the gull to request Masi be fired? And say that team principals shouldn’t be allowed to talk to the race director? It’s unbelievable to me.

    I hope Hamilton retires, F1 will be a less toxic place when he’s gone. At least Merc is returning to silver cars and regular uniforms. Maybe the drivers will stop kneeling finally and get on with it.
    ~FORZA FERRARI~

    Absolute Garbage!

    MM had some large shoes to fill. And yes, his decisions had been inconsistent, including the last race, but he is still new to the game. He has also had one other toughest years and rivalries to cope with.

    He did not have the luxury of additional advisors. And the inconsistent decisions are not just his to make, but also rest on the shoulders of race stewarts.

    The way I see it, he tried to get a race going to possibly not end the season under red flags and have a race for the championship right up to the end.

    Charlie was good, but made far bigger F-ups, at times costing lives. If he wasn't let go for that, I don't see why MM has to be let go for a couple of bad calls, with team bosses pounding his ear at every corner.

    Frankly, the FIA should ensure only 1 way communications between the Race Director and teams. There is no clarification of rules on the fly! The teams use this to get a byball... and when the decision does not go their way or they interpret the rules differently they call for the race directors head!

    Merc are behaving like kindergarten cry babies. Get over it!

    Maybe these rumours are true and Ross sees the writing on the wall. F1 has turned into a circus and the real ring leaders are Team Bosses.

    If MM is sacked. I will be giving up on my Sky Sports package. Sadly too many off us pay for this and not get anything in return.

    Seem the indian government got something right! F1 is entertainment, not a sport, and the biggest start to bow down to is Lewis.

    At the current rate I would imagine MBS probably has invited Lewis to his Palace and has Lewis and Toto dictating a new rule book.

    It will be bad optics if they fire Masi. Keep him as race director and change the rules. If they sack him at Mercs request, then it will really look like Toto and Merc run the FIA.

    Here's my opinion on Masi getting sacked. (If this is true).

    It was MbS (new FIA Director) who said to Mercedes-->" Drop the appeal and we wil get rid of Masi."

    Looking at the 2022 FIA organizational hierachy, Masi is no longer there......so it might be true.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I'm sure Luis want's to go out with 8 WDCs. It should have happened last race. And for sure Russell is the driver to worry about, 2 1/2 seasons with zero points. A 5 DNF race and a rain out race got him finally in the points.

    It's ok for this reaction to Massi but was sore loser and ridiculousxwhen Vettel swore about Charlie Whiting on the radio at Canada 2019. 1 rule for 1, 1 for the others. Liberty love this though, keeps F1 in the spotlight at a time of year casual viewers forget what it is. WWE F1 back soon, Drive to Survive in a few weeks.

    Of course he wanted to. Just not sure with the major rule change if Merc will be as dominant or his team mate will be as keen to move over for him. He might have to work for his next one and hopefully against a dominant Ferrari.

    Ferrari has the drivers. Lets hope the car is as new as what we are reading about as far as moving up into the top 3 . As far as Russell being Rubenized in his contract it remains to be seen. Todt's "Let him pass" on the radio is long gone. F-1 needs Ferrari back on top !!

    If Red Bull are useless it benefits Ferrari? If Max would have a gokart engine it would be one less problem trying to win.

    You mean you've never heard of the phrase "Valtteri it's James"?

    Will Hamilton retire?

    Or is he and Mercedes just trying to force concessions from the FIA?
