Keep the excuses coming, it is entertaining.
1- Last year the Mercs Party-Mode was ruling with 1080 HP .
2- The Mercs tires cooling invention-cheating worked outstanding as well...

BOT got today a red led popping up , and suddenly he got lack of power while he was P1 !
Made by Toto and HAM's overtake was a few laps later a fact .

On another note:

Race Wins:

Senna - 41
Prost - 51+
HAM = 92

Ironically, this represents the transition in Hamilton's career from a Senna-"esque" driver to a Prost-"esque" driver.

His explanation of his thought and action process during the opening laps was a clinic. Compare this to Max speaking of Perez, "HE didn't leave me enough room so HE took HIMSELF out of the race."

Once Max decides to drive his own car he will get the result all of his fans wish for.

These VER supporters must have the most fit minds in the history of the world from all of the mental gymnastics necessary to justify this BS.

1. Last year Ferraris cheating party mode was ruling. No party mode now for qualifying and VER still canít quite get there? Should MB have to run with skinnier tires just so poor VER can be competitive?

2. Agreed it should be against the rules and probably will be next year, but it hasnít always worked flawlessly (Silverstone) and they were dominant without it. Plus other teams arenít being stopped from developing something similar.

3. HAM had already ran down BOT before the overheat warning. Even with that VER still couldnít catch even BOT?

MAX had to start the race on softs .
12 laps later his tires were already completely shot with only 10 % left..


The Mercs ran +/- 40 laps on mediums with DAS ! Mercs tires last forever today !

^This, I said it two years ago after the Ocon incident. If VER matures he will be dominant. If he doesnít, he wonít no matter what car he is in most likely. We disagreed as to whose fault that incident was, but it was/should of been easily avoidable by VER.

Itís been two years since the Ocon incident. There have been a lot of other bad incidents including/leading up to this weekend he keeps getting himself into. Last year in Spaís first corner where he crashed and tried to continue with an obviously broken suspension/steering equipment was the worst of them IMO. He put a lot of people in danger with that idiotic move. So maybe he wonít before itís too late. Talent/youth as most of us here know doesnít last forever.

Complaining about Lewis and the Mercs will never help Max and Red Bull win. They need to go into media hibernation and develop their own car and Max needs to get some counseling to get his head right. Lewis is living there, rent free.

He had to as in had no choice? He had the advantage for the first few laps and did nothing with it. Except fall back to his usual panic mode and run into somebody.

Are you calling me old?!?!!!

You would be correct.

You make the most valid point that can be made about Max. He MUST mature before he is able to mount a championship run. Even with a great car he won't make it with his current state of mind. Of his 9 wins, only 1 has been of championship caliber and that was this year. That isn't a good stat.

100% This.

VS Lewis who said (appx), "I saw that it was very slick and decided to let them get by me and come back at them later." This is the thought process of a champion.

Sure, go with that it is always someone else’s fault. Funny how Max is usually the common denominator here.

And he was behind PER at the time he spun him. But it’s PER’s fault?

By the way GAS didn’t seem to have any trouble with the softs in the early stages of the race.

BOT was shafted again while leading so Wolff's golden boy would get those 92.
There is only one seat in Merc for a world championship contender in Merc..that's why Max and Jos decided on no to Merc.

Because if they did now Max would be the new BOT, and he would be #2. Glad you finally agree. Took a while.

He had 2 chances to take the seat and refused. Completely scared to face HAM.

The truth hurts. No conditions at Mercedes. Max and Jos said "It wouldn't be good for his career at this point to be paired with HAM."

He ran from HAM in 2017.

^ This

It would have been good to see PER on the podium. He was impressive in the first few laps. Before VER span him out.
