He's not a very popular driver. For example Lando is loved by not only McLaren fans. Russell it's loved by almost everyone. Albon too.

Well you said Leclerc is a real racer while Vettel is not (a couple pages back), and you seem to always imply that Vettel isn't a real racer. Just wondering what your credentials are for critiquing F1 drivers so harshly. To be honest I don't think you have any.

Ferrari's weekend:

A race weekend that coulnd‘t have gone worse. Chrles in Monaco partying. Promising initial results in FP1-2. Shocking quali sessions, car doesn‘t seem to work in the wet. Penalty for Leclerc. Binotto wierdly reprimands both Vettel and Leclerc for Covid related infringements. Comes raceday and they do the unthinkable ans they can’t even collect data before the ceucial Hungary updates. Binotto again wierdly formulates that he won‘t blame „the drivers“.

Copied

Binotto on vettel spinning (last week)

"The spin and the contact was certainly not a great action from his side. I think he’s conscious of it. I think it’s a shame because today it could’ve been important to score points, especially maybe when our direct competitors are not scoring much points".

Binotto on leclerc crashing

“I don’t think there is much to say to the drivers. It’s somehow a pain to conclude a race in such a way after only two laps. I think it’s the worst conclusion on a very bad weekend somehow, so a difficult weekend for us. I think it’s not time to look for responsibility or accuse, it’s time to work united"

Ferrari ought to do what I've done with this "sport", just pull the hell out and move on with life. Haven't watch a second of either race, boy was I shocked to hear Hamilton and Bottas went 1/2. Who saw that coming huh?

Just full tf out Ferrari, it's a waste of money and the sport is garbage now.

Any real racer would have more than 4 WDCs

I’m back for the Lando/Ricciardo pairing. Might be the most fun team ever

blaming others or something "all the time" for own mistakes is not a real racing material for me.. simple as that.. im very sorry to disappoint you..

Boy do I have bad news for you... Leclerc blamed someone hitting him from the back for the accident before he realized that the whole world saw that it was his fault. So by your own measure he's not real racing material. Sorry to disappoint you 😔

It's a good distraction the Ferrari clash, also the RP's brake ducts how timely, from the real issue of how the Merc has so much power on the straight (13km/hr more) when there was supposed to be no engine development since the cancelled Adelaide race but no doubt I'll be told that it was stored on the shelf packages that were brought in.

Albon says he was having Lewis flashbacks..
nice to see new generations way of talks.. he s getting better each race, his podium or more is not that far.. i hope soon enough Red Bull makes a new contract with him to ease the pressure a bit.. even if he deals with pressure quite good..

boy oh boy the first contact with Vettel was from left rear tire and he was asking if there is damage on the rear since everything started from rear end assuming a hit.. drivers are not watching the race from TV.. and probably asked like 5-6 times before getting an answer from his engineer.. disappointment.. ok..

actually top speed was Merc's weakest point im glad they recovered that.. at least for now.. or they can run W11 with a bit lower downforce than last year.. one way or another we can see if we can have a low downforce track this year..

Ppl seem to be forgetting that Merc shifted 100% of development to the 2020 car since mid 2019 because they had both championships in the bag by then. That’s why they weren’t dominant in the second half of 2019.

*It is apparent to any driver how wide the car is at the rear and the move was a no no even just before Leclerc dived in going well onto green kerb area hoping for the best ,a mental house escapee move.
