But even before he got the damage , he was losing it from Lewis .
Lewis and Bottas were 13 km/h faster on the straights , that's like winning a sea of time !
Let us not forget : Lewis drove 6 full seconds away from MAX in only 5 laps !

Like I said , the Mercs are a lot faster on the straights ...
Think Red Bull needs the Ferrari Jet-Mode from last year !
Hard to believe what we saw last year : Ferrari was even faster than the Mercs , that's what we saw in Monza and Spa on the straights ...
Lewis said at that moment , this looks like a Jet-Mode .
Yes guys ...The word "Jet-Mode" came from Lewis ..

Won't be easy for Red Bull to close the (huge) gap ....
MAX said : I saw enough ! He is already worried and he's getting impatient already by the lack of power , but the balance of the car is pretty good .
So Lewis first said 'jet-mode and what does he call the t/s advantage of the Merc now It's come out the blue the fresh Merc power and we don't know from when and where and also the gearbox sensors were rectified after commenting to media it was next to impossible.

i certainly believe our Belgian friend can telepathically ask Christian Horner or Max to smell Merc's to know if they smell like a fruit juice..



its from last week.. thought Binotto d explain the Vettel situation but not much.. actually maybe Vettel leaving Ferrari ll be a better choice for him anyway.. i hope Ferrari wont be a midfield team..

I'm sure in that moment Mattia would strangle Leclerc for that L driver stunt but has to be seen as a cool collective boss or the drivers would be at each other. If I was the boss I'd take him to a quiet place and ask for an explanation of his action in that moment and if not satisfied I'd act. It doesn't matter if he won 3 gp's last year, including Monza,has contract, if he can't gel with teammate then he's out and someone else is in.

Harsh may be to some, it's not just the other driver but all the personel involved that had enough of the moment of madness my friend. Previous incidents are taken on merit and have passed but that was then and the string has to come to an end somewhere.

Well it's looking more like the Hungaroring is going ahead and I'm sure fans will agree the twisty circuit will negate the top speed advantage of Ham/Bottas having it so easy there.
