I guess the only thing leaving Leclerc out achieved was robbing us a fight between the Mercedes...
Does Grosjean not like finishing races, is he just testing parts for Haas?
Calling it now. Haas finishes the year 8th or 9th in Constructors.
Ferrari is not in the game at all! It looks like it will be another 1-2 for Mercedes
Oh look it looks like Ferrari recognize Leclerc's existence.
Hamilton might get Bottas...
No time left.
Nah it’s over
51 laps of pretty much nothing, again. What a dud of a season.
Gutted for the result, Lewis could have gotten him if Leclerc hadn’t been left out so long.
I do wonder what Leclerc could have done if Ferrari hadn’t put him on the mediums in q2... but I guess we’ll never know. Fair play to Bottas for holding on. Almost!
They're waiting for him to bend the knee.
A good race, better than China. If only Ferrari's strategy wasn't so botched.
These regs have killed F1.
Stagnation in the front, stagnation in the midfeild, with a giant gap that can't be closed between them, F1 has generally been a bit predictable but man these last few seasons you can easily predict nearly the whole grid, atleast on Pace.
I remember when you would get the Odd midfeild runner qualify on the front or second row, now they can't get past the wall of the first 3 teams.
Jesus christ, im telling you its 2015 all over again.
God what a ***** of a season
What strategy? They did nothing wrong. Merc is just a quicker car.
On a different note.... People need to stop talking about how quick Ferrari in pre season testing because it's testing. You never know what the others are doing.
Well Baku being a street circuit doesn’t help.
Anyway great win for Bottas - he said he’d come back harder this season, and so far he has. Even though I’m a bit of a Hamilton fan it’s about time he got a few good views of his teammate’s exhaust going over the finishing line again.
So is there any point watching this later since I was out during the race?
First five corners between the Mercs, a few good overtakes in the first stint.
Highlights will do.
Hell might as well call the season at this point. No point in racing since Merc is gonna win everything AGAIN
Once you’ve dried your eyes you’ll see that the grid is made up of 18 F1 cars and 2 F2 cars.
It’ll make the races more enjoyable when you realise!
I've complained in many places about it; tyres. That's the issue. You have to have multiple (read: more than 2 combinations) strats to make these aero dependent cars seem interesting. Not enough deg, not enough differentiation, and no real reason to be on the harder compound- it's a complete waste.
Who else is ready for another 1-2 in Spain?!
Pretty sure it's now 4x F1, 2x F1.25, 12x F1.5 and Williams.
Lewis said something that I find interesting in the after race interview. It's not that the Mercedes are dominant. They know exactly where they are compare to the Ferraris as such they've been firing on all cylinders to maximize every weekend whereas the Ferraris are not so they don't look as competitive. I think that pretty much sums up the start of the season so far and I hope it doesn't stay that way till the end of the season.
I'm rooting for Lewis this season so I want to see him win the driver Championship. I'm curious to see how close he can get to some of Schumacher's record before he calls it quit. That being said I certainly don't want to see it all being a walk in the park for him.
Ricciardo gets grid penalty in Spain for his driving backwards without using his rearview camera and crashing into Kvyat
@Dennisch : You are right with 1.25 for RBR. I read the scaling backwards. So thought 12 x 1.5 then RBR must be 1.75.
But hold on!!! Ferrari where top in testing at Spain....
I unliked and reliked your post for this.
Yes, they are. That's just something drivers say to avoid a can of worms.
