Jelle van der Meer commented on the post, Hamilton confirms he will take grid penalty at Spa 8 hours, 12 minutes ago
If Mercedes and Hamilton are smart they get everything done at once:
1) Break a minor rule in FP1 or FP2 to get his 3 reprimand and incur a 10 place grid penalty
2) Change gearbox unless he starting with a new […]
I am Dutch so maybe biased but I would agree with Keith putting RIC above VES however I strongly disagree with the gap between them same that I disagree that VET is placed higher than VES and Sainz is only 1 place […]
@Keith – maybe good to swap Kvyat & Verstappen in above table – now Kvyat is next to Riccardio and Verstappen next to Carlos.
Looking at the Red Bull driver stats it is interesting to sell Riccardio avg grid at […]
This weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix marks the 30th anniversary of a race which was a radical addition to the schedule in 1986.
That is correct however it will be the 31st time F1 comes to circuit and race on t […]
Rosberg is under investigation and has to report to the stewards for exceeding the maximum time between safety car line at pitlane exit and safety car line at pitlane entry during Q1.
Being Dutch I can only say […]

Keith an error – Riccardio didn’t do 60 laps on a set of softs. He pitted lap 14 and 60 – Verstappen pitted only on lap 15 doing 56 laps on his softs.
Max age is really extraordinary if you consider that not until the last race of 2016 has anyone been younger to participate in an F1 session. Vettel is next youngest with 19yrs 56 days, by then Max already raced in 40 races.

Why start the interview at 05:10, why put such a headline on the article = it sets up the reactions you now see. The headline is not false but he also did not exactly say it that way.
I read it again but understood it differently.
Everyone gets 13 sets of which 7 are left at start of qualifying – the 7th set being the softest available compound for Q3.
Anyone making it into Q3 must start […]

If you would measure F1 excitement based on the # of different drivers or teams to win, the last 2 years have been the most boring in F1 history.
For the 8th time only 2 teams shared all the wins however till […]

You serious??? Getting a Toro Rosso into Q3 is not an achievement?
Also various folks are commenting that he only could overtake due to freshes rubber – well Perez and him were on equally old medium tyres – […]

I voted Max Verstappen.
Quotes from Lewis Hamilton – 3 time world champion:
“I had good pace it’s just you can’t overtake here,”
“I was behind Nico and he trapped me for some time so I just killed my tyres, […]

For me it was Max Verstappen for his great recovery drive from 17th to 9th following yet another qualifying impact by car failure.
Due to lack of Renault engine power overtake was certainly not easy, several […]

For me Lewis was Driver of the Weekend all the way simply because he was the best in every session.
When was the last time a driver finished 1st in every session held during a Grand Prix weekend and set the […]

Next to the drive through penalty Max also got a 10 place grid penalty due to engine change – HOWEVER the engine change penalty is NOT for a NEW engine but for putting in the Spa engine but breaking the seal […]

You obviously have not watched qualifying or bothered to read further than just the qualifying results. How did Sainz schooled Max?? Because Sainz started 10th on the grid and Max 18th? Did you realize both made […]
Jelle van der Meer commented on the post, McLaren pile up penalties with more engine changes 1 year ago
I already questioned why teams didn’t use this loophole at the Canadian grand prix. Use new engine after FP1, another one after FP2, another one after FP3, another after Qualifying just to get loads of spare […]

Max, only 10 races into his career, can tell his dad he has scored more points than him (Max 22 and Jos 17), Jos participated 107 GP weekends with 106 starts.
Adjusting Jos points to today’s point system Max […]
Would it not be smarter for Red Bull and Mclaren to put 5th engine in 1st practice, put 6th engine in 2nd practice, put 7th engine in 3rd practice, 8th in qualifying and 9th for the race.
That way they get like […]
