Just don't want it to become like the Politics thread which was deleted.

Thankfully, you never see this at actual races. Racing fans, especially F1 fans are generally some of the most knowledgable racing fans on the planet. It's a shame that this great sport can be ruined by what we are seeing here and in other internet forums.

Merc needs to get Bottas out of the car and give it to Russell or Alonso. We need a three way championship with Hamilton, Verstappen, and Russell/Alonso.
Neither one of those guys are impressive. Alonso is past his prime, and Russell is overhyped.

I agree on the Alonso comment, but I think Russell is genuinely a fantastic driver.

Partially disagree. I don't think Russell is overhyped. I think once he gets in a decently fast car, he'll be fighting near the top consistently.

It would certainly be great if there was just one thread that didn't include endless posts from M5Rick and ///M Power Belgium about how great Verstappen is.

So....how about you two don't post in the race thread started by YCO and start as many of your own as you like?

People said that about LeClaire and he's pretty much irrelevant.

Wholeheartedly agree. When sitting in the stands and listening to the different conversations, I'm amazed and pleased how savvy my fellow race fans are (same goes for the talk sitting at the bar in the evening).

It is possible Alonso is over his prime, all will reach that stage.

LeClerc and Russell are both very good and the results they have based on their equipment speaks for themselves. I mean Russell comprehensively beating Bottas on his FIRST time driving the Mercedes is more than enough proof of that.

In a car that frankly didn’t fit him. I predict Williams will be midfield by 2024 and if Russell is still running with them the comments will be very different. If he has moved on, it will be to Merc and we all know they know their craft better than any of us. If they select him, it says something.

And this is the exact reason why i struggle to see why Vettel, & Alonso are still racing when they havenít beaten their teammates in 3 races. Were they wearing shoes a size too small and driven the car for the first time in fp1?

Vettel is over the hill for sure. Alonso not so as he has been out of F1 for 2 years AND he has finished right behind Ocon the last two races. The first race, he was ahead of Ocon until he retired. The middle of the season will tell for sure if he is already toast.

I raise you, is Ocon really that good?

Letís not forget that Alonso was all but beaten by a rookie in Ď07 after coming off two championship wins. Passed in the very first race.

What is your point? When you get to be GM of Alpine, go fire him
