Had too much tequila last night and ended up in 2003 this morning.

Getting spoiled by 2021...Turkey's race would've been a good one in 2019, lol.  

I hate Max, but I want Honda to win but also don't want LH to win another...I'm so torn by this year's chip!

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Max either, but I'd much rather see him win it than MB get another one...

WDC is like leaving a really bad job to me. At a certain point you're not looking for something better, just something different.

 

Even if Max sucks, at least he's a different kind of suck.

Just one single non-Mercedes turbo era championship winner before the full regs overhaul, is that too much to ask?

Yup, exactly!!!  I'd even settle for it being a damn, I can't even bring myself to say it...  red car.

But I like Chili and Eclair in the Ferrari so I'd be okay with Ferrari winning one

My fear is after the full reg change, someone's gonna figure it out better than the others and we're going to see domination again...but with a powerplant freeze, hopefully the gap won't be that bad.

This is it - you need to open up development after the reg resets.  The NBA doesn't have a draft, a trade window, and free-agency every 5 years.  It's wildly anti-competitive - and simply not entertaining - when advantages get locked in for long stretches of time.

I want Max to win it...

I want Lewis to get an 8th title, just not this year

Car regs are going to be interested as the engines are frozen... so Mercedes still have an edge I think. We'll see what RedBull does with the Honda power plant now that they are taking over.

Not an exciting races, but definately nervous until the end to see the Max vs Lewis final laps...

Also, Kimi seems to do well here at COTA... Spa 2.0?

 

Lastly... Max and Lewis are just leagues ahead of everyone else, it's not even close... if either of one of them left, the series would be a 1 man show...

I think if there were more teams with similar quality machines you might see more guys up there. Right now it is only clear that HAM >> BOT and VER > PER.

Let's see how things are next year with George making the step up
