    Happy to see Charles in front of AT and especially McLaren—and less than a tenth behind Bottas—with only 1 Q3 run. Don’t know how McLaren was expected by some to be ahead of Ferrari when Charles was beating them in some races last year with that donkey engine.

    Carlos very impressive too but from the commentary was already .4 back at the first split so maybe a mistake from him. Pretty sure he’s not regretting his move at all especially considering the long game and how this year is meant to be a year of just managing expectations.

    Spare a thought for poor Vettel. I think the team are handicapping him with a poor car again this year. Oh, wait, he’s not at Ferrari anymore, right?

    Well I’m never been a fan of Max. Lots of speed but too cocky for me and if u listen to his peers, he caused a lot of collision, I didn’t see that mature side of him yet.
    Not a Hamilton fan as well but as much as he is disliked on this forum u do not win at EVERY level out of luck. U can say senna, Schumacher, Prost are better that’s fine by me but the guy is a superstar and a great driver... and u know I don’t like him

    Interesting year ahead!
    Hamilton-Verstappen will be very entertaining i guess.
    I’m just worried that the FIA secretly allows Mercedes to develop his car with more tokens to compensate for this difficult start of championship..

    We've had the Hamilton vs Rosberg era, then Hamilton vs Vettel era and now Hamilton vs Verstappen. Reminds me of the Alsonso/Schumacher era as Hamilton/Verstappen is similar in age as Schumi/Alonso then

    Too bad it's a fake fight, the real duel should be between the 2 best drivers, and those are clearly Max and Charles, if the mercs and the Bulls are a match for each other, crapilton doesn't stand a chance against max.

    I think Max will win some battles against Hamilton (he has a better car at this point), but it will take dedication to discipline to win that war. And even then, I don’t think Ham will stop pushing until the championship is settled..

    Team boss Toto Wolff reckoned that Mercedes was losing out to Honda in terms of its derating – which is when the engine boost that comes from its energy recovery systems runs out at the end of straights.

    Speaking about where Mercedes was losing time to Red Bull, Wolff said: “I think we're losing on the high speed [corners]. We can clearly see there's a deficit.

    “We're losing a little bit on the engine side in terms of derate. We are not yet in a happy place with our energy recovery, but it's not one thing we point to where we can say this is the big gap.”


    The strong form of both Red Bull and AlphaTauri in Bahrain this weekend indicates that its engine supplier Honda has made good gains with its new 2021 power unit.

    Wolff said he was confident, however, that Mercedes would get on top of its power unit issues.

    “Honda has done a great job,” he said. “They delivered the power unit which is extremely competitive. Look at where AlphaTauri is. And we just have to take it as sportsmen.

    Vettel now summoned for "Allegedly non-respecting double-yellow flags at 18:18 at Turn 1" (so in Q1) despite the earlier clearance message from the FIA. Has to go to the stewards tomorrow morning

    Ferrari were targeted for tires in past.

    Mercedes with aero. Applied to all teams but favors a rake design run by others.

    I dont sense whining as Im sure Horner is more than pleased and in favor. Tires were also a consideration, again applied to all teams.

    The fun interest is who adapts best and shows performance.
