    2019 Spanish GP

    Boring race,safety car bunched up the field and made it a bit interesting, glad Merc took another 1-2. Ferrari got an upgraded engine but they still suck. They need work on their aero. Nice sendoff for Dr Z

    They need mechanical grip, 1st sector was good for Ferrari, 2nd could hang with Mercedes, 3rd sector lost 1/2 second at least.
    Monaco is going to be Merc 1-2, RB 3-4, vettel and leclerc fighting Hass....

    Leclerc looks to me like too much hype and is no Verstappen...

    Agreed. Preseason testing was deceptive. Leclerc had one good race and some flashes here and there, but yup, too much hype. Season is still young though..

    Now Ferrari say it may have the car's design wrong and mistakes with strategy are because they are a young team, a learning team......

    Arrivabene, could you please come back...

    They call it Hammer time,and nobody does it like him. Say what you want about him, but he is probably the best out there right now, with Verstappen close behind. Vettel has lost it the last year or so.

    He is clearly the best...to me its no comparo.

    i was a big V fan over the last 5 or 6 yrs...but he really seems to have slipped a bit?....his mistakes are brutal.

    From what I have read Arrivabene was somewhat feared within the team. Now, maybe Binotto is too nice? It shows with the team's indecision with team orders, not just in this race but also in the past ones. Seems like he doesn't want to offend either drivers.

    When Vettel, on a 2-stop strategy came up behind on the 1-stopping LeClerc, they should have moved Charles immediately to take advantage of the quicker pace of Sebastian's strategy.

    Not so sure. Were Max and Ham to fight a full season with similar power, I would not be surprised if Max came out on top, with some spectacular driving by both.
    yay

    +1. I enjoyed him quite a bit. This new guy; less so. Same holds true for the pilots, based on what I've seen, so far.
