    Congrats Max...job well done.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I don't know what to say... It's finally over I guess.

    Thank God that's over, not pitting Charles under the SC was a mistake but probably wouldn't have made any difference, another embarrassing and painful race. Charles also dropped to P8 in WDC. Arrivederci F1 2020 finalmente.

    Yup doesn’t make any difference. Car & team lacks everything except drivers.
    Race pace/quali/Pit crew/Strategy, Don’t know how these will be addressed next year.

    Decent weekend for Alex. It might just save his seat. I would still love to see Perez in that car but unfortunately it's not RB's responsibility to save his career.

    For once, I think it was the right call. It was lap 9, and we were on hards and mediums. Of course, giving Vettel the team order to over here like Reanult did with Ocon and Ricciardo, would've been optimal. But Vettel isn't Ricciardo.

    Charles got stuck behind Vettel, that was the only bad situation. The strategy call was fine.

    The season is finally over. Plenty of changes to look forward to look forward to in terms of driver lineups. I really hope we turn up with a potential race winner.

    This season has been embarrassing. We've been humiliated as cheaters and beaten by lesser drivers. I hope Maranello has been enraged enough to work ten times harder.

    Wow...am I glad this season is finally over. WDC hopes rest on 2022, but I hope that next year we are in top 3, we cannot be lower then this that is for sure.

    As for the race, boringfest not seen in a long time. Vettel drove his race and didn't give in to Charles, would be bad to call strat call to let him go anyway, its last race we look bad anyway.

    McLaren with Mercedes engine are strong contenders for P2. P3 looks tough, P4 may be reasonable.

    For me, the most unfortunate take away from this season is this.
    As Vettel leaves Ferrari today, we are even further away from being a winning team than we did when Alonso left Ferrari.

    I hope we can somehow find a fix for the engine, as we wait for the new cars in 2022. As I understand, the engine will be freeze soon, and a new formula wont be introduced anytime soon.
    So if we can't fix our engine by 2022, the new aero regulation may not even save us.

    That said, this year I really enjoy watching F1 going to tracks that wasn't supposed to be on the schedule. Loved watching modern F1 racing in Imola
    We owe a huge thanks to all the people who managed to make these 17 races happen in the middle of a global pandemic

    Jesus wept! 13th and 14th in a race duller than most - livened up only by the Mercs NOT winning.

    LEC must be wondering why he signed a long-term deal.
    VET must be delighted to get out.
    SAI must be wondering why he's signed - and is leaving the McMowers just as they find their mojo.
    PER must be sad that a garbage driver like STR gets to stay in F1 whilst he's in theory without a drive.

    Ferrari could save a fortune in salaries if we just signed GRO and STR then, if and when we EVER built a top car, we could buy some proper drivers! #FedUp #Angry
    Angry. Always.

    Mercedes P1 and P2

    RedBull P3.....and possibly P4

    Mclaren P5 or P4 and P6 or P5

    Aston Martin P6 and P7

    the drivers from RedBull, Aston Martin, and Mclaren will be fighting for those positions--> p4 thru P7

    What's reasonable is P8 for Leclerc........and I stress reasonable IF Gasly pulls off another stellar year like he did in 2020.

    He's useless....he does'nt race....he drives an F1 when he's in an F1 car.....as opposed to say like his team-mate or like Gasly...whom Stroll tied with in the WDC standings.....provided Stroll had 7 DNF's in the season (mechanical, Covid, spun-out, got taken out...).

    Not to mention Strolls 7 DNF's and Perez's 4 DNF's

    The difference between Mclaren and Racing Point (who ended up 4th in the WCC) was 7pts.

    The whole team is to blame for Racing Points not making it 3rd in the WCC standings.....although a pecentage bears more than others.

    agreed.....but driving for Ferrari and not winning with Ferrari carries more prestige I guess.......[smh]

    [bolded area] Stroll is GUARANTEED an F1 seat as long as daddy is around to fund their hobby....regarldless how below he ranks against past team-mates(Massa, Ocon, Perez).

    I'm glad dad is funding their hobby...it keeps more than 400 workers from being unemployed.....it's his idea and partly his and his investors money.
