At the end of the season, it's not going to matter. Hamilton will win another driver's title and Mercedes will win another constructor's title.

That’s why I’m a Ricciardo fan.
If there was a reason for Ricciardo to be driving slower did that reason suddenly go away. If he could have been driving faster than shouldn't he have been driving faster.

Ricciardo might be the most likeable of all the drivers.

He does seem to enjoy himself.

Exceeded track limits, if I remember correctly. Only watched the highlights, I don't follow F1 as religiously as I used to.

I'm disappointed that they aren't going to the new rules next year, that would have likely impacted the status quo which needs to happen with Mercedes dominance.

Red Bull has some difficult talks ahead. They had a nasty parting with Renault. Mercedes is at capacity. Ferrari or new are the other options. And new won't get done in time for 2022 season.

Oh boy.

We wanted MORE guaranteed contenders, not less.

Makes sense. With the auto industry heading towards Electric Cars they probably don't see enough return on the investment to do the design changes for 2022 that will cost $$$$$$ at a time when growing number of people are looking towards E cars.

I think they also see that Mercedes is fully engaged and will likely continue to dominate the engine choices in F1.

Who else can get a power unit ready by 2022?
Toyota? Nah.
Ford back in F1? Don't see it. Why would they?
VW/Audi group going with a Lamborghini brand power unit? Probably not.
So...BMW then? Why?
Anyone else?!

Didn't Audi drop out of Le Mans racing?

Is Cosworth still around?

How about Porsche?

Red Bull needs to swap Albon and Gasly back immediately. Albon is a fucking mess and doesn't deserve that seat. At least Maldonado was usually running into walls rather than other cars. Albon is a fucking joke and Red Bull just needs to admit they made a mistake and swap the drivers back.

Porsche is already out of the prototype class and is dropping their GTLM program after this year. They're focusing on Formula E. I'd gather that they have less than zero interest in Formula 1.

Agreed.

Albon seems to have a driving style that puts him into position to collide with other cars. The first few times, the other drivers got blamed, now the pattern is continuing with just about every other driver in the field. It's either all of the other drivers, or it's him.

He may be out of his element in F1.

Good on Hulkenberg for scoring points.

Been a while since there was a race at the Nurburgring...

I went there in 2002, I think these pics are from my new cel phone at the time that had a camera, a real rarity.

Warmup lap at the Dunlop Curve...



Stuck in the middle of hundreds of chain smoking German Schumacher fans... one guy looks like he was wondering what I was doing.
