    Max didn’t have wins... but still no championship
    Lewis can do with out wins but not without Mercs car

    Give the same car to Leclerc, he will show Ham the real boss. Ham needs a comfort teammate, who doesn’t push him to extreme. When it does happen, you can see his results against Nico & button who are not all great drivers.

    Vettel told RTL that Ferrari won't have upgrades this weekend and that it is basically the Hungary configuration just with a different rear wing. He said that if they got lapped in Hungary, it won't be any better this weekend.

    Ferrari fans be strong this weekend.

    Would you say that you can be happy now that your contract has not been extended?

    Seb: "I think.....I don’t know what to answer to be honest (laughs)."

    Obviously I feel for the team because I have been and still are until the end of the year part of this team. Everybody is very committed and working very hard to make Ferrari win. Obviously there are reasons why that didn’t happen in the past. I think for Charles it is probably a bit different because for him it was always up and now it is the first sort of down again from last year but I think as he mentioned he is motivated to go through and in this regards I wish the team all the best.
    We had good years and not so good years but in terms of passion and dedication there is no doubt. So actually I feel for the team. Obviously it’s a tough year this year that we are going through. I have had the experience in the past where maybe years were not so good.

    Funny is that last week RB found problems which they didn't understand.
    One week later they now understand the problems and gonna fix them.
    Why do we need to waste years and still not identify our problems?

    Hamilton, Grosjean cleared air over protest misunderstanding

    I’ll save you the read, basically Hamilton told Grosjean it’s your responsibility to force everyone to kneel so I feel good about my self.

    How does he contract Covid? They are supposedly in a controlled bubble. Serie A soccer and other European soccer leagues, NHL for example are all working in a controlled bubble. No positives as of yet. Seems strange to me...he must have left the “bubble” between races.

    He was "vacationing" in Sardinia and ate in a restaurant in Mexico. Pics were delieted by his wife on Instagram.

    Yeah, he should have stayed in a bubble.

    Hulkenberg looks like a replacement.

    True that....arguably he had the car in 2018 and through the faults of his own mostly...the team did same mishaps as well, but he had a decent car to put up a fight till the end....but what did he do best?? Spin like a professional ballerina

    Binotto: "I am not the technical director anymore, I am only the team principal now."

    ➡️ : He said that they are looking for people outside of Ferrari and that they are not looking at the nationality but they have to find the right people.

    It’s a local F1 News website so not sure how much it will help.

    Yes, Ferrari is joining in on the Racing Point protest with Renault whom have lodged 3 protests already.

    Softer tyres will be used this race weekend in Silverstone. Ultrasofts make their debut. Minimum tyre pressure will be increased to try to avoid tyre failures.

    ha...ha...but seriosly though, both Mercedes experience front left tire failures.....as well as Saniz. All three incidents probably due to over-extending the tires limits on the track.

    Kvyat's right rear tire blow-out is still being investigaed.....which is different from the above 3....mostly likely his right rear tire hit some debris on the track.

    So instead of Mercedes choosing to run higher pressures on their cars, they make a minimum tire pressure increase that effects every team. Why should everyone suffer just because Mercedes had problems?

    They will claim its on the grounds for safety, even though they aren't seeing blowouts like they did in 2013. What can you do, maybe it will help Ferrari hahah.

    I have to believe Merc and Lewis himself didn't want to finish the last lap on 3 tires. If he didn't bring the car home in 1st place , Merc could very well have finished with zero points.

    I agree and back in the day, drivers did not need DRS to make passes on other drivers.

    Schumacher was naughty and so was Senna.

    Hamilton, Alonso, Button, Webber, Ricciardo, all have clean racing style

    Hey, maybe Merc will be caught cheating, or in bed with the FIA for the last 6 years and be stripped of all titles? A guy can dream cant he? lol
