But that changed very quickly !

As we can see that the Merc W12 PU found extra new power translated at the track in warp-speed ..
It doesn't matter how many wins or poles MAX has , the new Mercedes domination goes on ...
Same situation with the Mercs balance issues , that changed also very quickly by knocking on McLaren's door !

HAM's rear end was sometimes twisty today , by this we can see how powerful the W12 actually is ...

And it isn't over.

That's right my good friend ! Let us hope so...
I mean hopefully HONDA can find more power to battle the Merc's warp-speed .
How it looks like after today ?
Bad ! Very bad !!!
Currently MAX can't beat the warp-speed , he did everything and he pushed his 16-B beyond the limits !

By the Merc's warp-speed it isn't looking good for Red Bull and MAX !

Same for the rest of the field , the 18 drivers out of sight in the background...

As you say : a bit foolish ?
Actually it isn't foolish ! These are facts !
Not gonna waste time reading this long ass post. All i see is a whole lotta typing for a whole lotta losing

One thing is for sure : It was never easy to drive in the 16 or 16-B .
Gasly ?
Albon ?
Last year the 16 balance was even worse to drive with...

The W12 runs like a cruise boat to the next victory !
Ask the Russell boy , and meanwhile Checo already misses his Pink Mercedes...

Probably within 6-7 races the time is right to call Kevin Magnussen...
Otherwise It's too late in this season to get a Red Bull race strategy !

Yup. Just a whole lot of the same.

Not quite going to say Checo is way behind Max, even though I bet on Max against Checo.

I don't see how anyone could defend Max and RB after watching this race.

HAM outclassed them today. What a beast reeling him in with a 23 second deficit.

Ok guys,
4 races done, time to do an early assessment of the new boys!

Perez (new to Red Bull / Verstappen)
Quali 1-3
Race 0-4
Points 32-80

Ricciardo (new to Mclaren / Norris)
Q 3-1
R 1-3
P 24-41

Sainz (new to Ferrari / Leclerc)
Q 1-3
R 0-4
P 20-40

Alonso (new to Alpine / Ocon)
Q 1-3
R 0-4
P 5-10

Vettel (new to Aston Martin / Stroll)
Q 1-3
R 1-3
P 0-5

Verdict: Perez, Alonso and Vettel miss. Ricciardo and Sainz adapting to the new team quite well but still need to step up their game to become a hit.
So what do you think?

Hamilton and Toto to start talks on next years contract before the summer break!
So that will be another year before Verstappen has any hope of winning a drivers championship.
I can almost hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth from here.

mate you re finding a lot of excuses for Max.. he doesnt have a right to have a real shoulder problem?

he already out-qualified Max in his second race weekend with RB.. he has what it takes..

edit: shoulder pain is quite serious actually.. it means he is not 100% comfy in his seat or his seatbelts are not perfectly positioned.. its a shame for his mechanics.. not him mate..

So what do you think?
Hard to really say for sure. With the limited time for testing in F1, one can argue it will take more time to adapt. I dont think Perez all of a sudden lost his race craft. Alonso, the bar is higher for him because of his past success BUT, two years is a long time to be away from F1. That or he may not have it anymore. I would give both Perez and Alonso until the middle of the season. Vettel is definitely past his prime IMO as he has been underperforming for years now.

As I have been trying to stay out of the jibber jabber and just provide my takes, here they are:

- Merc strategy won that race as well as Ham making the most of it.
- RBR seemed to have missed 2 windows to actually let Max have a shot at winning, pitting the lap after ham for mediums or pitting around lap 50 for softs when Ham was still 10 seconds behind him. Would have made for a much more interesting finish.
- Norris had a lonely race but that late pit stop for softs paid off
- Alpine was struggling at the end
- Interesting how AM cant make it work with the new regs, but Merc can.
- Leclerc was amazing again
- Good to see RIC up there finally
- I really thought George was going to find some points this week
- Bottas will certainly get a talking to, hes just being a spoiled child at the moment, he had the shot at the race and blew it then tried to hold up Ham out of spite.
- Mick seems to be making the most of things
- Mazespin is just oblivious out there when there are cars coming on him to lap him
