Let the games begin...

 

I'm saying 1 Merc and 2 Ferrari's on the podium

They say the bullshit stops when the flag drops, seems the truth bombs started falling earlier this year

 

read something about Ferrari running a less aggressive version of their new engine for 'reliability'

 

KMag says he only did low fuel runs

 

Jenson says they don't actually have enough downforce to compete not only with Merc but 'a couple of other teams'

 

did I miss any?

Oh yeah this GvG saga is pretty awesome, Sauber could have their assets seized.

Sauber really fucked themselves over by having a contract, good on Garde for not rolling over when he knew he had a signed document. Hopefully people will understand when you sign a contract it's legit and not meaningless.

You'd figure Sauber would've had an exit clause in there somewhere to get out of this before signing another 2 drivers.

Am I a bad person for hoping Sauber get their shit seized and Kaltenborn gets arrested? Well I'm sure nobody will mind the latter.

Furthermore, van der Garde's chances of receiving a superlicence to drive the car seems slim now as well, while Monisha Kaltenborn who is making her first appearance in the paddock this week is now present but not answering questions.

Meanwhile, bailiffs could be instructed to move in to seize Sauber's assets if it cannot fulfil its court order to allow van der Garde to drive, forcing it out of the event.

 

not even one free practice yet and F1 is full of drama. Apparently Garde is wearing Marcuses race suit as he doesn't have one with all the sponsors or team info. What a cluster.

This is the best start of the season yet. 

 - Merc 1+ seconds ahead of everyone else

 - Manor still running a 2014 car with software issues

 - Sauber can't get their shit together

 - McLaren running a whopping 13 laps combined

 - Fred out of commission

 

:rofl:

Other than the races that come on before midnight, looks like I won't be watching any races live this year either...  Sucks that it's going to be a race for 2nd in the Constructors and 3rd in the chip again :hsd:

Pretty lackluster for an Australian GP. Hopefully Malaysia brings more racing action.

Nasr is clearly the man.  Honorable mention to Verstappen and Sainz.

 

Outside of that, what a shit show.  The only thing worse than the state of McLaren is the state of the sport. 

 

Let's not rubber band the team's performance, but the homologation, lack of testing, and change token strategy is just a fiasco.  All it is a perpetual penalty for early design mistakes.

 

I absolutely will not watch another season of Hamilton shitting all over the field, solely thanks to an engine designed 2 years ago.
