Toto Wolff feels every weekend since 2014 that Ferrari/RBR are close. He also has a lot of pretence. Wait for the challenging times.. He will crack and how.Restomaniac wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 3:34 pmI agree.

I think that's why we go racing. Everything looks in a certain manner on paper, but we go to the track to see if it really is that way. I think that's what brings out the excitement in us fans. It is these 'iffy' moments that make the good one's really sweet.
I think from a personal point of view, I would have loved to see Sebastian take the WDC this year. But, Lewis winning it doesn't make me bitter/sour. I think he deserves it. He's been in PlayStation mode after the summer break. I just find the Mercedes PR tirade absolutely unbearable. The funny thing is, I'm not even a Hamilton supporter. Hell, if you cast aside the massive respect I have for his abilities I might even dislike him. I think I was actually more disappointed last year when Hamilton didn't win and Rosberg did.
As for the Mercedes PR they are not in their own Look at Renault when the heat started over their new FIA employee. They quickly saw it was becoming a PR disaster and quickly extended the supposed gardening leave (I don't buy there will be no info shared behind closed doors). Big companies play the game of maximising PR.
Niki Lauda finds everything 'unbelievable.'
I have also seen a desperate urge in the Mercedes ranks to make 2014-17 look like they've been the underdogs and somehow managed to win. I mean, it's one thing to be diplomatic and underplay your chances and quite another to treat the fans like fools.
