    Re: Formula One

    We had a couple of fun races in Austria and Silverstone. However, Barcelona was parade and a boring race. Clearly, the Mercedes driven by Lewis is the best combination and a class above the rest. This is just as bad as Ferrari and Schumacher in the 2000’s.

    Good to see Red Bull - Honda performing better as well as McLaren and Renault. Also exciting to see Racing Point being competitive as well - regardless of the brake duct controversy.

    Sadly, the Ferrari’s are so bad they should be called “Scuderia Porky”. Not to mention that Vettel is underperforming in the worst way.

    You are right, at least it would have added some excitement to the race. However, Lewis is so good on the rain, he would have still won.

    You mean the car , not so much lewis is so good , IMO there are at least 2-3 drivers faster than Lewis currently ...

    Would have loved some rain myself , rain is a good equalizer , Max would certainly have been able to steal another win again...

    Re: Formula 1

    New formula one fan here (last couple of years - didn’t know it existed until the Netflix series). It is interesting to me that Lewis and merc are so dominant, yet I still find the rest so fascinating. Wow, it would really be fun if there were competition at the top. Lewis looks like he’s just driving in a track with no one around him.

    You might be on to something. It will be interesting to watch the next season of the Netflix F1 series and see folks reactions behind the scenes.

    A lot of people at Williams were naive to think it would be ‘business as usual’ after the acquisition. I’m not surprised the new owners made swift work of replacing Claire.

    Re: Formula One

    Even with the sentimental perspective of the Williams family, with a 7 year tenure as the team leader, it is time for Claire to move on. Williams is racing with the best F1 engine (Mercedes) but their cars have been consistently the worst in the series over the last 3 years.

    Change is good. Organizations that don’t reinvent themselves eventually disappear.

    Agree that change is good. But if you are the owner of the organization you can still instill change without having to relinquish that role.
    What I see here a situation that affects most family-owned business: they don’t make it past the third generation (second in this case). Lots of studies and reasons why that would apply here. There is a famous write up by Peter Drucker on that.

    Re: Formula One

    In every interview I've seen with Claire, she really admired her dad in ways daughters usually do. Watching her fails, its evident she's neither the rainmaker or 'Indian chief' her dad was. its best for all concerned she step down, especially for the new capital partners.

    Re: Formula One

    If you think so and BTW Max and Danny not doing one off’s , not to mention completly being schooled at Monaco by Danny ..

    Lewis is better than Vettel for sure (faux4) but not as good as the original Faux 7 (Schumacher) who had enuff epic drives to prove some worth ( can you name one epic drive by lewis ) he will never be regarded with the great same as Schumacher too many easy wins and orders for Teammates to move over , In equal cars he wouldnt be able to beat Danny ,Max or Sainz , Crap he struggled to beat Nico a midfielder at any level ..

    Nope Lewis is just the new Faux 7 less than the last one, stick him inna RB and show me a win ,

    Re: Formula One

    You mean 12 off wins ...

    Button did sully him as a teammate too , promptly ran off to Mercedes , to an easier target, which Proved not . Bottas current Numbing ambition is another safety zone.

    Bottas move over , lewis would like to pass ..!

    Now thats the F1 spirit

    Lewis handed Alsono his ass in '07, a two-time WC and it was Lewis' rookie year! Alonso being #1 at McLaren (best engines, best mechanics, best engineer!) wasn't able to catch Ham: 6 poles vs Alonso's two and 4 wins vs Alonso's two. Schumacher was always number 1 at Ferrari and hardly drove a clean race (Portugal 1997?) and who can forget when he pulled that crappy stunt to steal the WC in '95 away from Hill. Oh, almost forgot, Benetton was cheating in '94. We now know they were using traction control (formally banned) at every start. Except for Piquet at Bennetton, MS never had a WC at Ferrari as a team mate and team orders were strictly followed by the horsey team.

    Murray Walker's take:

    Lewis Hamilton better than Schumacher, Senna - Murray Walker

    Handed Alonso , hahaha

    You should go deeper Puro, Lewis feed off of Alonso data and help right up until the split and with the might of Ron and Mcclaren still couldnt muster to beat him in the end ..

    In case you missed it Alonso was always rated higher than lewis right up until the end, there’s a lot on behind the scenes info available if you are interested .. Start with Lauda interview with lewis and him explaining how fantastic Alonso was and how he needed his data to match him ..

    BTW Lewis couldnt carry Senna ‘s Jock straps , i do see him trying them on thou ..


    Schumacher , well had issues, so no argument there , but he did have epic drives over his reign, Same as Alonso , Go ahead and name one of lewis’s epic drives, granted both he and Schumacher had to force teammates to move over to let them look good at times , Schumacher had Barrichello thou who is even faster than lewis IMO at his peak so Schumi had an excuse, you gotta take points off for asking Bottas and
    Nico to move over ..

    Now tell me how fast Button was beating lewis or Rosberg , Max, Danny, Bottas , crap even Heiki ...! ,

    When you are in the best car in history and spent all your career driving top cars its not only how much you win as expected but who you lose to and how they are rated, is what determines your real worth ..

    Brundle said it perfectly when he said Hamilton is as good as his car and not like Schumacher , Senna or Prost who could win races above the level of their car , today only Max and Danny is doing/has done such ..!


    Lewis is barely Top 10 greats if at all ....!

    A faux Champ same as Vettel before him ...!

    Sad news today with Sergio Perez forced out at Racing Point. If it weren’t for his investment a couple years ago the team wouldn’t have survived. Rumor has it that he and Hulk will replace KMag and Grosjean at Haas.

    Checo Pérez has been a pretty good racer. Unfortunately, he may never get a chance to drive a top F1 car. I do hope he can stay in F1.

    Re: Formula One

    I'm sure Checo was paid very well by Stroll to dissolve his contract. He's a very good driver, keeps quiet and doesn't complain. He deserves to get a top drive but I agree he might never get the chance. Why do I feel Ron Dennis put a label on him that still follows him????

    Reading the reviews of the Netflix series, I can only conclude that a lot of folks (specially younger American folks) who had never cared about the sport will become followers. Mercedes and Ferrari saw the response to the first season and quickly signed up. I wonder when will the 3rd season air.

    Well, there is something to it. I think we all understand that if Max or Charles would have been in Bottas' car over the last 2 years things would have looked different now.
