    Ohh believe me. Love me some Ricciardo, glad to see him pulling some decent results with that Renault. But as a WDC candidate, I would love to see Bottas win. Vettel seems a bit too far off this year to recover.

    Edit: Forgot to add my hello. Didn't know this thread even existed!! Nice to see some fans about

    :D

    Seb is sadly on the descending branch.If rumors starts in Formula 1 then they become 98 percent reality.His days on Ferrari are counted after this year.
    His contract until 2020 is a patient sheet of paper....:(

    And this is then the chance of your Honey Badger.His LAST presumably.
    I would grant it to him and it would close the circle. He was finally always number 2 (behind Vettel + Verstappen and he runs actual danger also behind Hülkenberg.)

    Seb has been not quite himself lately but at the same time I don't see Ferrari letting him go anytime soon. Who else would they recruit for that seat, that will be atleast at similar levels of competitiveness. Unless he retires, i think we'll see him for a few more years.

    Danny's a bit up in the air still, 2021 may actually come good for Renault. If it doesn't though, he might either end up bouncing around a few other teams before leaving or retire altogether. Verstappen is definitely a generational talent and i can't wait to see him compete for the WDC and I don't think Riccardo is on his level. Although so far, he seems to be doing a good job against Hulk.

    I like Daniel too.A very sympatic and charismatic guy,that tpye that Formula 1 needs more of it.:)

    Seb is no longer Ferraris First Choice,do not forget the Legacy of Sergio Marchionne.He is the one behind LeClerc his "Child protection".
    You know Ferrari is a 100% political Team.There are no "friendships" or such things.Mattia Binotto is the same direction.LeClerc IS the 2020 Number 1.And I can not imagine Seb stays as Number 2.

    Agree. If Seb doesn't step up, he is definitely going to end up number 2. Unfortunately, Ferrari's politics have put them in the position they are currently in :(

    The good thing in the last 2 races until today:

    The distance between the 3 Top teams getting smaller and also to the Mid Field comesup.It is getting a little more interesting now.McLaren did a very good Job to catch up.:yay:
    Renault/Alfa/Haas struggles a little but also getting forward.

    Only Toro Rosso and Racing Point has lost a little ground.Williams ?? Out of order.....:wacko:

    Hamilton is now close to being 2 full race wins ahead of his closest "challenger" Bottas. And it would take 4 race wins from his fastest (though horrendously inconsistent) rival Vettel, with Hamilton scoring no points, before Vetell would be even on points with Hamilton. Even then Lewis would still be ahead in the standings due to having had more victories.

    So even though the fat lady hasn't *quite* started to sing, maybe the question that we should really be asking ourselves is will there be a driver/car combination in 2020 that can step up to the challenge of stopping Lewis matching Michael Schumacher's record of winning 7 driver's world championships?

    What rotten luck for Ferarri

    Having said that, all their issues appear to be on tracks where they have an apparent speed advantage. All those tracks are hot tracks. Are Ferrari only able to go so fast because they are perhaps being too aggressive with their cooling systems in these situations?

    "Adjusted" result after Alfa Team got 30 seconds penalties for both Drivers for "using not allowed adjustements":

    The exact facts are complex. Superior, the stewards accuse Alfa of violating Article 27.1 of the Sporting Regulations. It states that the pilot has to move the vehicle "alone and without assistance".

    This is a superordinate article that gives the FIA the power to ban any type of driving assistance. In fact, the FIA sent a document to all teams detailing such driving aids. Similar to a Technical Directive, this document is considered binding by the International Court of Appeal.

    Specifically, it is in the case of Alfa to the clutch. Although there is a standard engine control unit in the Formula 1, which comes from McLaren, however, the teams may change certain parameters in it - the clutch settings are included.

    So that the launches are more in the hands of the drivers than the engineers, the FIA decided some time ago certain measures. This includes, for example, the prohibition of a second clutch lever.
    It was also made clear that the torque output by the engine must be linear with the position of the clutch lever. This translation may be done with a maximum time offset of 70 milliseconds. For Kimi Raikkonen, however, the offset was 200 milliseconds, for Antonio Giovinazzi 300 milliseconds.
    As a result, both had "possibly an advantage," as the stewards said. Specifically, this could be a simple form of traction control. Especially in the rain, that would be a big advantage at the start.




    FINAL final Standings after 64 Laps (292,736 km):

    1. Max Verstappen NED Red Bull 1:44:31,275
    2. Sebastian Vettel GER Ferrari + 7,333
    3. Daniil Kwjat RUS Toro Rosso 8,305
