2019 FORMULA 1 SEASON

Probably a good move lol.
I liked the guy, but who knows about his technical prowess. He’s a Philip Morris guy, after all.

Can’t wait for Leclerc to shine and give Seb and even Lewis a run.

On the Merc side, I truly believe Wolff is waiting for Bottas to fail this season to promote Ocon.

Everyone on the team was excited when Arrivabene was coming on board as team principle. I wonder if this change will be good or bad for morale.

I am also looking forward to see how Leclerc does in testing versus Vettel. I see the potential for on-track fireworks if he runs similar times to Seb.

I just hope RB has some luck with Honda!
Would love to see Max have a fighting chance in every race rather than just every now and then.

Oh he's definitely a cocky little bastard sometimes, but entertaining for now.
He wasn’t like that before. It’s only because he’s now a #1 driver that he’s become cocky. And RB continue to feed him the Kool Aid.

I’d laugh so hard if Honda fails and RB does quit. But let’s hope not.

I think it gets into their heads sometimes. I remember Hamilton at the very beginning was pretty down to earth, and now he's dating pussy cat dolls, has a museum for his trophies, and acts like a baby full of excuses when things don't go his way.

Being cocky is a prerequisite for being a race car driver. They all suffer from it, but some just do a better job of masking it when talking to the press.

I was more a Flying Finn fan over Michael when I was younger. Not cocky, but confident and the best driver to challenge MS. But you’re right, they all have that trait unless you’re Karun Chandhok lol

Too bad for sabbaticals, eh.

I think all athletes (or others at the highest level) have to be, "confident". and it will show when portrayed in the press. But I also think there is a difference between the confidence of Hamilton (and I'm not a fan of his)- self assured to a fault, arrogant and a bit whiney but still fairly respectful of other drivers. and then there is Max- super whiney, entitled attitude, very immature, and I don't think very respectful. I was excited when he first hit the scene, young, exciting to watch and a ton of talent. But his attitude has grown tiresome already and I not sure I look forward to him in the future. He could grow and become more mature, he is still very young, so I reserve the right to like him again :).

Yeah that is pretty my exactly how I have been feeling about him as well.
He's good, there is no doubt, but he needs to get over himself.
Maybe when he starts winning more races he will mature a bit.
Or that could possibly make him worse, who knows lol.
It's not like his father has set a good example for him...

I think he has talent, but I'm not sure it is F1 level talent. Ocon has so much more talent, but his dad didn't buy him a team. Time will tell.

So many great stories this year. Hopefully Ferrari can pick up the pieces and Binotto can do some good. I had mixed feelings about the Marlboro man, but many in the know say he contributed to the second half slump.

Watching RBR in earnest along with Williams, great respect for Kubica.
