Bottas is usually good for a win or two a year and I'm sure there will be craziness along the way with failures/crashesOdds that Max and Lewis will finish 1st and 2nd in all 23 races?
Toto sounded more frustrated than motivational tbhKind of sad when you need the whole team to cheer lead for you for pace. Lol
Probably a smart decision by RedBull to pit Max again. That fastest lap point could be decisive at the end of the year.
Well, there's Hamilton.... and then everyone else. The unnoticed thing is with the Mercedes supposedly handicapped with the new rules, now Hamilton has to fight like hell and he still decimates everyone.
Mazepin is making no friends, but I don't care. When you can block your teammate on the straight (Giovinazzi), put him out of the race on the second lap, and only get five seconds, pretty much everything has to be fair game. You can block the leader, or you can take someone out in a straight line with a bunch of stupid swerving, and the penalties are the same, so what's the point of even having those rules to begin with? This is all going to change once someone launches a car into the stands.
I was really hoping for a better race than this. Really like this track but another disappointing F1 "race".
Raikkonen distracted by switch change on steering wheel when he hit Alfa Romeo team mate Giovinazzi | Formula 1®Kimi Raikkonen has taken the blame for his race-ending clash with Antonio Giovinazzi early in the Portuguese Grand Prix, the Finn saying he made a misjudgement while making a change on his steering wheel.www.formula1.com
They brought the hardest tires and it was a pretty cool weekend so there wasn’t much grip or degradation to be had, that’s why pretty much everyone one-stopped unless they went for the fastest lap point.Hopefully they can do something about the surface and lack of grip before F1 (if ever) goes there again.
However, the lack of grip on a wet track usually makes for a good race, so what happened here?
The surface is still fairly new, its going to take time, but I really like Portimao. I hope it stays on the schedule in the future.They brought the hardest tires and it was a pretty cool weekend so there wasn’t much grip or degradation to be had, that’s why pretty much everyone one-stopped unless they went for the fastest lap point.
These are the "best drivers in the world," so they just have to deal with it. I can only recall a couple of spins all weekend, so it couldn't have been that bad......nothing line the black ice at Texas for sure.They brought the hardest tires and it was a pretty cool weekend so there wasn’t much grip or degradation to be had, that’s why pretty much everyone one-stopped unless they went for the fastest lap point.
