Whos expectations change on the fly? How do you know what they expected in the first place? And why do you bother tracking that anyway?shingles wrote: ↑Fri Jun 14, 2019 3:09 pmIt’s funny how people’s expectation changes on the fly. Even though RBH has not finished below 5th place and have two podiums, in a first year partnership... now it’s not good enough.
Of course we all want more... but some perspective is probably good in life.
Regarding perspectives, yes it is indeed good to try and look at a situation from angles. You've given two angles, now let me give you some more.
-RBH has no wins to date in 2019 against two wins last year.
-Red Bull cannot claim anymore that they have the best chassis, they are lagging by their own admission.
-They were not the best at Monaco and have gone backwards in Canada compared to last year.
-The Honda partnership was setup well in time for the 2019 season and benefited from the Toro Rosso and RB Technology collaboration, the "new partnership" excuse weares off quickly.
-Regardless of claimed power advances, they are still not on par and behind.
-Red Bull as a team is weaker than they ended last year.
-RBH's top driver on top form has not been competing for wins (~bar Monaco) and is merely racing for the last podium spot.
There are plenty positives as well, reliability being one, but as you see there are plenty of bullet points to be made and depending on how you weight them you can come to different conclusions. Mine is the feeling of slight disappointment. If you think that is unreasonable and "funny" that fine thats your opinion.
I hoped and still do hope for better results from Red Bull Honda this very year.
