    Hamilton to equal Schuey this year, Merc's DAS system is genius.

    Other teams can complain all they like but it is legal.

    The Ferrari thing on the other hand needs more transparency.

    Corona virus to disrupt the season and possibly make it a shitshow.

    Hard to argue with any of that.

    I think Verstappen can take the fight to Hamilton but he’s not going to get the same support that Hamilton will. Bottas can mix it up front but I doubt Albon can cut it(despite what the biased British journos are saying)leaving Verstappen to fight on his own.

    I think Ferrari were sandbagging a bit but I don’t think they have the ultimate pace needed. Add in the driver rivalry & I see them having a similar year to last year.

    The whole engine ruling is very suspect but not surprising - it is Ferrari & Jean Todt is the head of the FIA.

    Think Ferrari are going to start third best. Going to be interesting after the first race with Red Bull saying they will protest the result if Merc use DAS, plus I think I've hear Renault and maybe McLaren will protest Force India if they are successful.

    McLaren have withdrawn from the AUS gp. Pussies I say. Already here so might as well put on a show. Apparently one person got sick.

    Agreed. Unless it’s Sainz or Norris then race on. Very disappointing & throws this round into disarray. I suspect they won’t be the only one to withdraw & puts doubt on Bahrain IMO.
    I’m pretty pis*ed with Hamilton bagging the sport for racing this weekend too. He talks about ‘cash is king’ all the while playing hardball with Merc over $$ on a new contract.

    Wouldn't be surprised McLaren are being political in this call. Thinking they can benefit in someway.

    Hamilton is safer in Australia than he would be in Europe. Daily life for everyone is normal.

    We are seeing very reactive responses from say the likes of the NBA (most likely China related). I'm sure Hamilton will win a record equal championship with only racing 5 races this year

    The teams were saying 21 races for this season was too many & it should be reduced. Looks like they got their wish.

    I hope the drivers don't get paid. Particularly that whinging bitch Lewis Hamilton.

    Gives teams more time to try and copy Merc's new tech - I bet they're spewing a little bit just quietly.
