Both Mick Schumacher and George Russel topped the time sheets driving a Ferrari and Mercedes beginning of the week. I think George is a better driver then Lando Norris, it's a shame that he's driving such a poor car.

Rumours have it, that if Vettel does not improve, he might get dropped for 2020, despite his contract ending at the end of 2020.

Haas is sponsored by the energy drink maker Rich Energy. But have you ever seen a can of Rich? Probably not!
So if you've ever wondered where Rich Energy gets enough money to be the title sponsor of an F1 team, you might find this an interesting read;

Really Interesting read G..thanks for that..,didn't know of "Sugos" involvement... :lol:

F1s always flown close to the wind...Prob worlds best means of worldwide advertising,
but not sure now....especially over here,there'll be a lot less people watching now cos
of the TV rights thing,all going to Sky,so they might have missed the boat over here,
would still need to pay for a Press/TV Campaign,to kick it off

Be interesting to keep an eye on tho..

Always wanted Red Bull to take us over....just our fuckin luck,someone similar comes in and it's
backed by Sullygold..... :lol:

Well, Bottas nipping in ahead of Hamilton, and the Ferraris comfortably outpaced by the Mercedes on a track that should have suited their alleged power advantage.
Three races in and Ferrari don't look as good at this stage as they did last season.

After the shenanigans between Verstappen and Vettel in Q3 I'll be watching with great interest if they find themselves battling for the same piece of tarmac tomorrow! :lol:

I can't believe Ferrari are shooting themselves in the foot again. Favouring Vettel, who increasingly looks less competitive than Leclerc, after 2 races, seems utterly stupid.
Fair enough ordering drivers not to crash into each other, or even to hold position for a tactical advantage, but ordering Leclerc to let Vettel past, who then looked slower and cost Leclerc a place?
Ferrari look like they've learnt nothing.
Still Mercedes looked supreme in a race where Ferrari should've been favourites. That record 6 championships on the spin looks within touching distance.
