Hamilton has put his Merc into the gravel during this mornings testing!
Apparently just before he went out on track, he had been given some tips on how to go fast from the Sultan of spin himself.

With Max not on today it was expected that Checo wouldn't set the timing screens alight and yes Hammy drove as if he had a hangover

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'd like to be the first to congratulate Valteri Bottas as the FIA Formula One World Champion (for day 2 of testing).

After a scrappy first day, Valteri showed his worth and delivered a shocking performance pipping the Alpha Tauri of Pierre Gasly at the very end.

Ohhhh...C'mon ! Let's think further ..
Mate . Yesterday there was a lot of wind ! The wind blew MAX off the track !
In other words : Yesterday the Bahrein track is been hit by a sand storm !
MAX's helmet and visor looked like it was sandblasted ! He had to change it twice .
SAND = Lack of traction !
Today the conditions are a lot better .

MAX yesterday in the sand .This is how it looked like...

No gentlemen, the real difference is that HAM has 4 pole positions driving the 6th best car on the grid in 2009 which is more than Max has after 5 years in a top 3 car.

He could be driving anything on the grid and I wouldn’t like him.

Does he have talent? - yes
Is he an arrogant spoiled brat? - yes
Does he blame everyone else for his mistakes? - yes
Will he win a WDC anytime soon? - no

I had a really good chuckle the other day. Rewatching F1 Drive to survive with my father-in-law. Max leading the race, Ocon trying to unlap himself...a smart driver who knows how to win would have just gotten out of the way and let Ocon go and gone on to win the race.
Max “Hold my beer!” My ego is as wide as the track so no one can pass me....you know the rest of the story...

Even my father-in-law (who used to race midgets and was one of the first to build/drive a rear engine one) was like WTF is Max doing there, he cost himself the race, he should have just let Ocon by and cruised along to a win.

things i ve got from testing even if its not finished yet..

- McLaren found a great way to maximize the rear of the car probably better than others.. and car looks like one of the best cars on the grid for sundays so far..

- Alpha Tauri somehow changed the chassis to attach last year's RB double bulkhead.. its still a modification but they managed to get away with it.. (?)

- rear downforce loss seems like to punish low rake cars like Merc', Aston Martin.. RB will take advantage out of this..

- i didnt miss Alonso to see in a F1 car.. sorry Alo fans..

- Merc' is working hard these days to manage put back some downforce on rear.. there are some problems.. definitely Lewis realizes how less rear grip there is now.. different setup approach or parts is needed surely.. maybe even in front.. thoughts and ideas probably flies already..

- Alpine has a massive airbox..

- Honda seems made enough pressure to put a Japanese driver in AT that wasnt looking that bright in last 2 years but it can be interesting.. he seems like a good lad though..

- Perez will need less time to adapt than expected..

- this season we might see much much closer races..

- Alpha Tauris white rims looks nice..

- Carlos Sainz might need more time to adapt Ferrari..

- Leclerc can shine this year even if Ferrari wont be in front..

- Alpine looks like a grippy car..

- Haas looks like will have some drama this year (a lot of wankers will be flying)..

- Aston Martin and Merc' looks so similar because of the colors on TV..

- not sure Vettel will smile this in AM.. his steering inputs are much much smoother than Ferrari which is pretty cool.. i hope he ll get some racing he is looking for..

- Ricciardo already adapted to the car.. wait for late lunges again.. awesome!
(not telling this because he had faster track available in the last session)

- AM and Racing Point cars are quite different.. actually totally different mid and sidepod areas..

- even if Sainz has a 2 year deal with Ferrari, if Ferrari academy driver manage to snatch F2 tittle this year.. it can be interesting.. Ferrari can go impetuous about that..

- except Merc' transmission and Ferrari no dramatic reliability issues in 3 full days of testing..

- RB can get a head start this year if Merc' cant figure out the problem until GP weekend..

- Vettel carries a green notebook around..

are the ones comes to my mind now..

BS !!!

Unlap himself , to get what ??? He was not even in the points !
If HAM was the leader of the race . Ocon would get out of the way ASAP !
Ocon did it intentionally ! Afterwards he thought it was very funny with his mentally disturbed personality !!!
He should have been banned for the rest of the season !

In short : Ocon is a piece of 5H1T !

They raced against each other in the youth karting competitions .
As you know LeCrash was also there ...
Back in time MAX won pretty much everything .

The envy of MAX's success started already there ..

Ocon and LeCrash are both pieces of 5H1T !!!

I agree about Ocon, but MAX still should have just let him through.
Max's stubborn nature cost him the race.

Mate .What would have happened if HAM was the leader of the race ?
What would Ocon have done then ?

The same Kamikaze Torpedo move ?
