    Alonso has got something to say tomorrow about his next year plan/contract it seems.

    Anybody know where's RB? He hasn't been active on this forum for quite a long time now.

    I'd answer your question, but we don't need politics in here. He's fine.

    Maybe for Monza FP1 they should put Stoffel in Alonso's car and Norris in Stoffel's car and see what happens.

    Ocon is screwed next year. Unless Merc gives Williams another discount on the engines.

    Bottas can be funny. "Marketing people, acting busy", "This is toto's office , he hates when someones puts their feet on his table" then proceeds to do so. "Oops there's my contract", then he steals something.

    Abolute carnage into T1. The Thug goes on to a dominant victory, extending his lead over The Legend even into the final laps of the race.

    Yeah, massive carnage there. Almost reminiscent of baku 2017. Prancing donkeys have had a superior car for sometime and the drivers have been under performing. The thug with massive car advantage takes the win and will likely do the same at Monza. Merc need some development/upgrades soon.

    I like how quickly the whining over Ferrari’s dominant car has begun after four years of absolute domination of the sport by Merc.

    Like this? First it was that lever behind the steering wheel, then the electronics and battery design, etc. Even the people from Sky, Peter Windsor, and every other brit are saying things like Ferrari is cheating somehow, that is why they are beatimg Merc

    Did you see how Lewis squeezed Vettel to the left on the approach to La Source? I mean you don't just open the inside like that at the start without knowing the cars behind will not attack you. Plus I think it was an invitation to the Force Indias to dive down the inside to take at least 2nd place from Sebastian. Was it also the reason why Ocon aborted his lunge at Les Combe? Admittedly the move on Vettel will not stick but he could've slotted behind the Ferrari ahead of the Merc.

    Watch the start to see what I mean:

    Or waiting for Seb to be blocked by both Force India, it could have ended with some pieces gone from Seb's Ferrari and at least the front wing on Ocon's car...

    Anybody notice the 'johnny walker' trophies?

    Before Liberty entered the picture had an F1 trophy ever been sponsored?

    I agree the trophies have sucked for ages but this is not a good direction imo.

    They are lame. Used to be big metal plates or cups. Then went to plastics or run of the mill stuff. At least these were better than that monkey from the French GP

    That was an almost unbearably dull race. Too bad for such a cool track.

    My favorite trophy is Australia, with the old steering wheel.
    Interested in vintage cars? Ever thought about racing one?

    ^ I did like the old steering wheel.

    Was watching some Goodwood Revival yesterday.

    Simple wreath around the neck from a beautiful lady does the job.

    It's classy, cultured and speaks to the heritage of the sport.
