I’m hoping Williams and Haas pick up a few wins this season
The latter confirms the former winkhehe

Sadly there's no chance in hell either of them will win a race, they are whole seconds a lap slower than the usual front line cars frown
Yeah this isn't the premier league where the relegation candidates can have a blinder at home and pull off a fluke 1-0 win against the league leaders. You are looking for these teams to punch above their weight in a few races or try a risky strategy that gets them 9th or 10th.

A wet/dry/wet Monaco with a combination of crashes and safety cars puts Mazepin into the lead.

For the remaining laps everyone is too terrified to try and pass him...

Just wait 21 seconds, at a respectable distance so you have time to dodge the debris, and he'll get himself out of the way.

What struck me more is everyone in the team is terrified of him, which isnt really a healthy thing for a team like they have.

He is clearly a driving force, but not in the Zak Brown mold of encouragement, more a do it or you are toast merchant. laugh
At the team briefing, both my wife and i thought he looked like a Mafia Godfather.
He comes across as too emotionally involved and too angry to be a good leader. Doesn't mean he's not successful, but he doesn't inspire. His whole brake rant just comes across as spoilt baby.

If you can't deal with the fact that other teams will use EVERY method to beat you, you shouldn't be in F1.
I find those who invest their own money are usually more emotional.

Zak Brown is just an employee. There's a big difference.

Gene Haas is seldom seen, Aston Martin/ FI are one of the few teams where we get to see the money man.

I do wonder why the Turkish GP was almost totally absent. It was a great race for Lewis, a great answer to his detractors and a total spectacle, but I guess it was embarrasing for too many people.

It was the one race I especially was looking forward to and it was near invisible. Instead we got the TV gold of Grosjean's crash being milked for every second it was worth and - may the saints preserve us - far too much (ie , any at all ) of Ricciardo (aged 13 ) wittering on about Abiteboul's bloody tattoo .
