He’s hinted it will be a Bond girl name... any takers on what it will be?

Obviously it should be Honey 😝

Edit — please tell me someone caught the reference 😂
After today's drivers' conference it's got to be Honey!! 😂

Summing up the biggest difference from Ferrari to Aston Martin - "beans for breakfast, not just a small espresso!" Seb is a class act.

Well well well, i guess Lewis really didn't like Russell's outing last year during the covid cold. I would have expected AMG to simply use Russell again if there's another contraption, and Williams would have to use their reserve. Hulk for AMR makes sense. for Both AMG AND AMR?? that's a bit. well, will be curious if for some madness situation both Bottas and Vettel have Covid the same race weekend. Would also be pretty balls to see Hulk get in the AMG seat and actually win a GP though.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Vettel's horrendous luck continues. Hope he would be able to complete the race tomorrow & use it as a testing opportunity to understand the car better.

Otmar has basically said that a low rake concept doesn’t work so 2021 is over.

P6 in the championship if we are able to maximise it. Alonso & Ocon will be tough to beat.

Shame, they sounded rather enthusiastic so far, surely they knew from simulations this would happen.
All on 2022 then.

It was a smart idea before the 21 rules were postponed. It is what it is.

I’d actually not mind them having a complete dud year. Of course, as a fan it’s going to be hard to watch but that also means they deviate to 2022 quicker.

Get your 3D cameras out then, and find another concept to copy.. those grapes are super sour at AMR aren’t they...

They took the gamble, paid off last year. Except finishing 3rd, team achieved whatever they aimed for.
I don't mind lonely '7th' this year; it might be a blessing in disguise. Apart from switching early to 22 car, they will also get more wind tunnel time( If I am not wrong) compare to teams finishing front.

Feel bad for Vettel though; his suffering has no end :( :(

But for 2022 they have to make a car
I don’t think Mercedes will share 2022 car plan so it will be difficult
