  4. Never a massive fan of F1 but I did used to like Button , Hill and Mansell but from day one I could never warm to Lewis Hamilton and even more so now when he starts his preaching .It just seems way to serious , sterile and with drivers with zero personality .

    Again like last year most of the action and focus is off the track
    Only a few more weeks and BSB starts

  6. Exactly right , if it wasn't for the hype there wouldn't be the supposed interest in F1 - end of .
    The cars may be the pinacle of motorsport development but that doesn't make for good racing , look at literally any other series and it's far more entertaining . I'm sure they're already planning the next rule tweak to make things interesting because that's the only way to generate interest - the actual racing is stale .

  7. As an aside an interesting fact generated from the 'super' commentary team was that Verstappen had equalled some pole position record or other set by Jim Clarke . How the hell they think comparing today's racing with the legendary drivers of the past is just pathetic . No mention of today's drivers having a 23 race season yet back in the '60s it was around 10 races for the year - that's 10 opportunities for pole position with crap tyres , hand change , pit stops , lethal circuits and virtually no safety equipment so who are the real heroes then ..?

    Rant over , F1 is just a money machine ...

    Was wondering whether we’d bother with this years thread!!

    I was optimistic after the practice sessions and a relatively close quali…. They the lights went out and Verstappen was 1.2 seconds clear on the first lap. Even the DRS activation on Lap 2 didn’t help!!

    I’m going to stay optimistic, I’m hopeful that there will be a closer gap, but what is evident is that Ferrari, Merc and Mclaren are going to be quite close throughout the season and with the undercurrent of Hamilton’s move to Ferrari I think there will be some sparks. Rus v Ham, Ham v Lec, Sainz vs Everyone… Norris vs Piastri might even get a bit tasty.

    Ignore the Red Bulls. Watch the real racing behind

  12. ok so some f1 sites reporting that Jos relationship with Horner is not good and he wants him to go - could be an interesting development.. also reading that Jos has met with Toto (remember there is an empty seat at Mercedes next year?)

  13. Like I said , it's all hype and action off the track ...

    Jos never had a good relationship with anyone.

    ... then watch a rookie driver come 7th because he was shoe-horned into a fast car. Not much about driving is it? The qualifying is more fun than the race.

    OliverBearman, not a bad showing for a last minute replacement and only 19 years old.
