  1. Lewis? Really? Yeah, qualifying was lightly impressive but the race? Winning the drag to the first corner and then staying in front while driving a more powerful car doesn’t mean all that much to me.

    Dan? Botched qualifying, again. He did make the one pass that meant something in the race though. And he played the clown to the crowd on the podium while Lewis was trying to bask in his own greatness.

    Maybe we’ll give it to Max and his fancy orange helmet. He had the wood on Smiley all weekend. Neither did he drive into Smiley all weekend. AND for putting on the exaggerated, pantomime head shake as he ground to a halt in front of 80 million Dutchies (according to Sky).

    Yep. Max. Suck it up, son, your time will come.

    • HAM’s quali was monster, the fact that Vettel even got close was because of a tow from RAI; otherwise HAM would have had the field by a half-second. These days that’s pretty huge. Then there was the pass on RAI out of Eau Rouge which was a pretty good move to line him up and stay flat, at least in my book. Or the fact that HAM could seemingly pull out Sector 2 best times at will (which is not a power sector) every time Vettel looked to be a threat? The Mercs seemingly were on the wrong tires at the end of the race too (couldn’t figure that strategy choice out); why not SuperSofts?

      I don’t think the Merc is substantially more powerful anymore, except maybe in quali mode. The Ferrari is right there. On Sunday, we saw the best side of HAM; undoubtedly we will see the worst as well.

      • You make a good case but in my own mind I’m always right so you’re wasting your time.

        I just pick facts that support my long-held, illogical biases and dismiss any contrary evidence as the ravings of a deluded fan-boi.

        Please refrain from trying to disrupt my lazy, self-serving reality.

  2. Danny Ric. He should never have been on the podium. Knows how to drive a car without breaking it. That’s why he’s Red Bull’s number one driver.
