You stop posting in this forum until your hero MAX wins a race.
Making it easy, just a race, not a WDC because that would be a life sentence.

Or are you too chicken to accept?
Not that confident in your hero? He is the best right....

Queue the running for the hills and excuses to not accept this challenge.
yeah right mate.

This is how good and fast the MERC really is ....
Just read through this thread.

Still havent seen a response to the Bottas argument.

If it isnt the car, why is it always 1-2 Merc?

Serious question, I have no skin in the game. I watch every qualifying and race. Both mercs are within 0.1s on pace and 3rd is usually+0.5-0.6.

So if Hamilton is the best driver then Bottas is the second best driver.

HAM lost there 20 sec. with his walk in the park , not bad for the GOAT ! While MAX danced a 360 X 2 in P2, because in the pit they transformed his front spoiler in a horizontal Pisa Tower !

At the start MAX lost 6 places and 8 sec. by the lack of grip . All the other teams started the race in second gear and found by this much better traction .
The HONDA PU can not start in second gear . The Honda would stall in second gear .
I'm not sure if any other driver could finish the race in MAX' car .
Regarding MAX's issues during the race , is P6 absolutely not too bad.
Umm besides the guy right behind him in the same car?

^ ALB's wing wasn't 14 deg out as a whole, it makes driving an F1 car somewhat tricky if not impossible adding the conditions.

7 plus and 7 minus from point zero makes a difference of 14 last time I looked.

Good maths except.... Red Bull have confirmed to Formula1.com that it emerged after the race that they made a mistake with a front wing adjustment. On one side of the wing they were seven degrees of turn short, creating an aerodynamic imbalance.
And Motorsport.com: Unfortunately for Red Bull, any progress made with this package was scuppered during the Turkish Grand Prix, as a mistake during a pitstop meant that the angle of the flaps on either side of Verstappen’s wing differed by approximately seven degrees. This led to the aero imbalance that hindered him.

One turn is usually 1/2 a degree.
A team very rarely adjusts the front wing by 7 degrees for a routine pit stop fine tuning of the front downforce.

It doesn't matter how much it was , it really s@cked for the driver . The result was showed ! It was a serious handicap to drive with !
Disrupted balance and aero was guaranteed at higher speeds ! Crazy front tire wear and vibrations included !!!

Even mr.Magoo would see that and stop the pretence from some that Max was faltering because of inexperience..

Pancakes with honey pear syrup right now . Later this evening lasagne bolognese .
Dessert is Sabayon ..
As always everything is here fresh and home made .

Note : There is a lot of misunderstanding regarding F/fries (French/fries)
Fries origins are invented in Belgium . Have family in France and their fries tasted terrible !

The whole fries history from back in the late-1600's => https://wonderopolis.org/wonder/belgian-fries

So , It's actually "Belgian fries"

The US-military called them French fries during the war . Because they were in the French speaking part of Belgium in the Ardennes (Wallonia)
"Bastogne the war of the bulge" !

Every year during the summer I visit the Belgian "American soldier cemetery"
I'm always lost in words ...
This year I was not , regarding the damn virus .
