Same fantastic drivers performance by MAX just like it was at Spa-Francorchamps ...

His engineer and of course Hannah were the guiding light to his path and the spin could be believed as a victory spin which must have gutted Charlie.

About time someone had a proper "Car Launch" instead of a fashion/media event

Went about three laps without any smoke or flames 🔥 Thatís a good start. Hopefully they will be dependable this year and we will see some close races.

It would appear that Hamilton still hasn't signed any contract, not that it bothers anyone but Wolff but how long can you keep someone waiting. Plenty of others waiting for a fraction of the price?? Hello team boss..

I don't understand? No one is affected nor is anyone waiting to see what Mercedes does - HAM seat is not available and there is no rush to sign any extension.

Until there is any consistent and significant drop off in performance, no one should wait or expect that seat to be available to anyone.

HAM hasn't signed yet for the 2023 drive? so don't you see my point..
Hence my question of how long can he keep a team waiting while he sorts his personal issues.

What? HAM current contract expires at the end of this upcoming season. There would be no rush to sign anything until the conclusion of the 2023 season.

And what personal issues? Itís a contract negotiation. Things donít magically happen when youíre talking millions of dollars. Regardless, HAM isnít going anywhere for the next 2-3 years so whatever does or doesnít happen is irrelavent. HAM could go on a year-year contract and it wouldnít change the fact he and RUS are going to be a pair at least until the new regulations kick in 2026.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has spoken out on Sergio Perez's chances of being able to challenge two-time champion Max Verstappen for the drivers' championship, and he does not seem hopeful for the Mexican driver.
"I think the reality is that in all probability, Max over the season is likely to be the [better] candidate for the World Championship."

Las Vegas oddsmakers feel the same way....in fact the early odds posted show that they feel there are only 4 drivers with a chance. 1 Red Bull, 2 Mercedes, and 1 Ferrari driver...sadly, the other 16 are just there for the show.

Max Verstappen-140
Lewis Hamilton+300

There's me thinking he's not signed yet, he has another year then.
