Thanks to Max for making it worthwhile to tune in. What a talent. I haven't browsed all 30 pages of this thread, apologies if repost



Footage in that vid prompted me to find this one. Always fun to watch an F1 talent around a circuit you've driven.

Floridian? I went there last year in one of PCA club events and only then I appreciated how fast race cars are when LMP1 can do it in 1'43"something and I did it in 4'11" (although I did it in an old 911 &#129322. But that video is seriously cool.

Not officially, but spend some time and try to hit Sebring as much as possible.

yes, the Alonso lap.. posted that elsewhere. Unreal!

Just a friendly and humorous gesture here for sure, in my time anyway (before the snowflakes made their presence) but in Ocon's case well deserved and a warning for a pest as I saw it.He looked like he stumbled over something when he went backwards??

In fact this is a fundamental skill from Max. Top tyre management makes all the difference.
IMO, Max is the best in this respect since Alain Prost.

Knowing MAX when the car runs like it should be ?

This season isn't over yet !
Merc have had success with das working under THEIR terms and conditions. Catalunya coming up has one long straight and a variety of turns but without the long high speed curves of Silverstone that caused havoc with their 11's tyres.It'll be more of a challenge but hopefully high track temps will again curtail the das advantage somewhat and hopefully Alb will come into the picture also.

Yes O's baby face is no excuse for ruining what would have been Max's 10th victory up to now from then and with his add to insult s******ing I would have put his head in a fire water bucket

Trying to recall any race -- when has a split Merc strategy ever worked out in Bottas's favor?

i dont recall as well but it doesnt mean it didnt work for him in some race.. but one way or another yes Bottas is tying to beat Hamilton but no one is getting mad at him except himself or people around him if he cant.. cause he is #2 driver that tries to be champ in the end.. there was a talk like this during the race comparing him with Barrichello.. as long as he doesnt crack under pressure which he did few times or demotivates himself easily he can still fight for it..
