So my 'strategy'
Checo on softs can possibly outrun Lewis at the start making way for Max. I hope

27 years ago we lost Ayrton Senna and Ronald Ratzenberger @Imola

(and a month before that Kurt Cobain.... )

Anyway. San Marino is in Italy like Vatican City is in Rome/Italy.
This is for our STRIJDER DER NEDERLANDEN (Belgium & the Netherlands) sung by a very famous good old Italian artist.


Only half an hour left....

Cheers
Robin

Because he's only succeeded in 4 major changes in rules and regulations in F1. Sometimes I really think you started watching Formula One about 3 races ago.

Sir Lewis the only driver in the history of F1 to win a race in each season he's raced in Formula One.

And as far as him being scared of 2022 there are a few things you should consider:

1. Paddy Lowe's Quote about Lewis in testing; "When we get the car back from Lewis in testing, we know that every bit of performance has been extracted from the car. I can't say that for any other driver I've worked with." Now if you go back and look at the drivers Paddy Lowe has worked with, you will understand the import of that statement.

2. The importance of a driver with Sir Lewis's experience in testing a new car in a radically different formula cannot be overstated. See statement 1.

3. Anyone who doubts the skill level of Sir Lewis at this point is probably 1 of 3 things.
A. Completely ignorant about F1 and what it takes to win a race, let alone, a championship, and way beyond that 7.
B. Doesn't like Sir Lewis and think's he's lucky. (I'll be generous and place you in this category.}
C. Doesn't like Sir Lewis because they are racist. There are lots of these who try to hide in category B.

Instead of the vitriol, why don't you try reasonable engagement and make this a better place. We already have people who are vitriolic and divisive on here which can make it a very challenging. Be a good forum citizen and don't contribute to propaganda. You were/are a cop. Don't be a consistent instigator. You wouldn't tolerate it in your professional life, don't bring it here.

Cheers-mk

Shouldn’t Perez be penalized for overtaking under the safety car? When he ran wide, lost places, then took them back?
Edit: they’re looking into it

HAM goes off on lap 32 of 63 but clears his debacle and returns to track with a deranged front wing

RB fans would cry out for what happened in the first corner if Lewis d made the same thing to Max..

its a part of racing..

but one thing that i dont understand why lapping cars cant get the dry line on slicks while they re lapping.. that caught Lewis quite badly to brake on wet surface on slicks..

lets see what happens in the 2nd part of the race..
i guess Russell will take the blame on that crash.. he had enough space..

What do you expect him to do when backmarkers are on the day love and they’re not giving him room except on the wet line?

Cheeky comment. It was a back marker that caused him to go onto the wet and tried to pass. But a rare mistake none the less.

Race ain't over yet.
