    I've grown to love the Finnish national anthem. Every time it is played, the Diva is NOT P1!

    Vettel's season so far;

    Australia Q 3rd R 4th -1
    Bahrain Q 2nd R 5th -3
    China Q 3rd R 3rd +/- 0
    Azerbaijan Q 3rd R 3rd +/- 0

    I know it's only four races into a long season, but really?

    :(

    An interesting race to Watch, for me at least, confirming my expectations
    Ferrari lost this race during the qualifs really. They probably had the fastest car but failed to capitalise on it.
    Vettel was never on it, and Leclerc had to overcome a low grid position, but he drove well.
    Then during the race, the Superior Mercedes strategy completely outfoxed them.
    It's really difficult to undestand Ferrari pitwall décisions.
    It looked like Red Bull was absent today.
    Good race for Racing Point and McLaren. Stroll is even in the points !!
    Disaster for Renault and Alfa. Same old for Williams.

    To be honest it seemed a victory for both cars to make the race, and finish, between a manhole cover and a hard visit to the tek barrier...... they are in a deep hole and it will be hard to climb out.

    Ricci and Kvyat summoned by stewards, I'm guessing a penalty/fine coming for Ricci :(

    You can measure a driver vs his teammate and also the overall team strength vs the field in a given season.

    I'll say this-----give a Schui or a Senna the fastest car and he WILL win, often if not almost every time barring complications beyond his control.

    But Vettel is not in the same paragraph.....

    Leclerc just admitted Ferrari told him he had no chance to catch the 4 guys in front of him. They kept him out hoping he would hold up the Mercedes for Vettel, a guy not interested in chasing down the mercs. 3 of 4 races they have intentionally f*cked him over. The need to get their head out of their ass and see what everyone else sees. This is a joke. The season is over and it’s april. Here’s to hoping Bottas keeps challenging Hamilton. That’s all we have to hope for.

    The results are terrible so far but I think the car is better than that. I'm missing that Bahrain win more and more.

    I think the car is better as well. The car would be better had they kept Binotto in a all technically consumed position within the team rather than team principal. Now the car will suffer along with the strategy and Binotto will collect his check and pontificate through the rest of the season.

    Binotto isn't head of strategy. Whoever the strategist is needs sacking (long time coming) and someone competent hired. They can walk into the local mcdonalds and find a better person to manage strategy.

    They put some other guy a top Jock Clear in the strategy department. All strategy needs to be sacked now.
