Can't wait for the next race!

Personally I think Mercedes will prevail - they will run the slimmer rear wing for speed advantage and with the momentum they have now in the championship LH for title number 8!!!

There seems to be a stream of ex racers including John Watson now who have joined in offering non stop advice for Max.
What they fail to realise is that you can't change your character in a flash and the blatant ramming by Merc drivers should be being addressed by them not how Max should be
'savvy'.

''stay largely the same'' ''there will be performance updates''
I love F1 speak from the top to the masses about the 'same' engine but at least they are saying something while MIB just talk in circles.

I'm pessimistic when it comes to F1. To me, largely the same = no new ideas
Updates? Everyone will claim updates

MB is in stealth mode when it comes to the '22 engine. Makes me nervous

There is a budget and you can see now Merc are in trouble employing their hit and run tactics so in '22 the field at the front will be closer to each other,Ferrari like Merc are keeping quiet so far of what they're going to do and if Lec wants a transfer then you know it's not a good situation.

So far Ferrari is still not going with the MB split turbo design for '22. Thinking they are the only engine in the field not to do so? MB showed the path, why not follow it?

They're saving the money from split turbo design to do something 'radical' it may be either something different on their standard PU config, 18'' wheel suspension, aero,or gearbox design.

Apparently carrots were white, yellow or purple until sometime in the 17th century when you clever cloggys started turning them orange, which the House of Orange found very pleasing

With rule changes come more opportunities to find loopholes & exploit them better than your rivals.

Personally I'm looking forward to next season

And here we are, 300 years later, carrots still orange despite that we have the technology to probably make any vegetable any colour we want.
And carrots loved/praised that they are so good for our eyes because of the high β carotene content that makes them orange.

BTW I also read that it might be a myth though, making them orange.
But I don't know, I wasn't there. Sounds more like story to promote something.

It was the year of the lord "1533" Yes I said "1533"
And that's why the carrots are 'Orange and the Dutch MAX fans as well => https://www.delft.com/william-of-nas...liam-of-orange

Surely isn't it 35000 who can't attend and 70000 can if a third of tickets are cancelled. Drinking problem journos can't add up 2+2 lol

Well that's not going to just "buff out"

Ouch - sad that some people only watch motorsport for the accidents, eh? These are still real people taking their lives in their hands for our entertainment. It's Gladiatorial but they don't need to die for our amusement.
