Anyone watching C4 coverage?

The guy sent DC and Webber to hunt down Toto like turning the dogs on him!!! I loved it Lol

Edit, they found him talking to kids of the mechanic in the motor home.
Reality TV
Yeah, Toto sounded pretty gutted, but took it quite well, even doing pretend weeping on Coulthard's lapel.

He neatly dodged the elaborating on what tricks Lewis was talking about with a round about response, but with some hints tha Mercedes are looking to replicate those tricks, so long as the FIA deems them legal.

Toto also seems to think Monza would be better for Merc, but I'm afraid the tea leaves scream Ferrari.

I wonder if overrated Hulkenberg will get the well deserved race ban or not ...

also lol @ everyone praising the halo because of some scratches on it in an area far away from the head
I was thinking since the car went from behind, halo probably didn´t help. But you can´t assume it was not useful because the scratches are far from the head. Scratches are there, so the car passed at that point pretty close to the head, how can you know the car didn´t go closer or directly into the head but halo did deflect it?

I wonder what ‘little tricks’ Hamilton was talking about.
Classic Hamilton sooking, it was all fine when they had the dominant chassis and engine :roll: :roll:
Yea, Hamilton bitching about being down on power and hoping guys are going to catch up. Also repeating few times that he did what he could making sure that he has slower car. He bahaves as he has a second slower car than Ferrari.

Germany 2018. Short-term memory loss.
Go back and look at your own idiotic posts from that thread. When was the last time you honestly congratulated Mercedes and Hamilton when they won? Your behavior has been blatantly stupid.
Well since you put it that way, I am an Alonso fan so you should understand my bitterness.
I had tears in my eyes when Hamilton won in Hungary 2013. I don't have to praise Hamilton just to show you hamboys if I like him or not. I don't hate Hamilton, but I certainly hate hamboys.

And sorry I could not resist lighting your a*rse on fire with my previous comment. :lol:

Ok, well I came on here to mention what a bad sport Lewis is - casting aspersions on others when they dominate, yet his years of having by far the most dominant car in recent memory are all fine - but I can see it’s pretty clear to everyone (but the fanboys).

Ultimately he still has a fairly healthy championship lead - and Mercedes have extended theirs despite starting a car at the back - so there’s plenty to be optimistic about on their side. With the way this championship has gone, scoring like that on a weekend when you’re slower is what it’s all about.

From a personal perspective, I hope Ferrari can make the most of their current pace, as i’m sure Mercedes will be back at certain races in the back 8.

I´ve always enjoied Lewis driving, but IMHO time is proving best driver in F1 will be out of F1 next season. Lewis lacks mental strenght, he´s easily demotivated. And Vettel makes too many mistakes.... ok not that much, but when compared to Alonso, yes, he makes more mistakes by some margin

Hopefully he´ll win the triple crown in 2019 and someone will offer him a top seat in F1 for 2020 or 2021. He really deserves some more title

Has someone won F1, WEC and Indy championships? I think he can change the definition of triple crown ;)

Did something happen to Hulkenberg's car? There's late braking, and there's being unable to brake properly. Seemed like the latter consider how much speed he carried. Enough to launch Alonso's car over another car. Otherwise that was a huge error.

I saw Bottas hit a Williams from behind at the start of the race. It was Sirotkin then, I didn't realize who it was.

So the best he could start from would be P17 - would make sense to take another PU then.

He misjudged the braking so badly. He braked once, but it was not enough to slow him down properly. He sent Alonso's car like a torpedo over Leclerc's Sauber!
