    So much for Haas getting better each year like their competition has. I really don't think it's the drivers' fault.

    I'm surprised Haas hasn't pulled the plug. That a huge amount of money to spend running around in last place.

    Isn't the Ferrari engine down on power. That could be much of Haas problem which is leading to some cracks in the drivers. I liked Grosjean in the early years when he was calm about the teams growing pains and Gutierrez was being a primadonna but recently he's been wearing on me. I sorta like Magnussen. Seb ain't my favorite driver but I can't decide if I feel bad for a champ being treated by Ferrari like he is or if it's his just desert. I doubt he'd go anyways since that is a Ferrari based machine.

    Yeah I think they could do with at least one new driver but they seem to have inherited Ferrari’s woes this season too. Vettel might be a threat in the racing point if their car stays strong but I can’t see anywhere else.

    They are all whiny bitches, except Bottas and Kimi. For F1 Sake podcast had that theory that we feel the drivers now are a bunch of soft divas because we get to listen in to them bitch during the race, but if we heard radio from the Prost, Senna, Lauda, Hunt, or Stewart eras, we would probably think the same about them.

    Magnussen is a warrior. He's already stated that he would gladly sacrifice his life for the sport. That guy is nutz.

    I went to some car races back in the 70's where a friend of mine's father who was pretty good was competing. This was the championship that eventually morphed in the British Touring Car series so was a pretty high standard. I couldn't stand it, all the drivers seemed to spend their time whining about this, that and the other, it also seemed to attract a right bunch of dickheads as spectators too. Haven't been to a car race since 1977 because of it.

    Yeah but he really needs to stop defending like his life is on the line when he's being lapped for the third time by the fifth placed driver.

    Roger Penske was seen yesterday giving the FIA president a tour of the track!
    It's not set yet, but F1 WILL be back at Indy, and I think pretty soon.

    Is David Ralf's son? It would be cool to see 2 Schumachers (cousins ?) in F1.

    One of the Bahrain races is using the outer loop. Predicting a 55 second lap time. Wonder how many times the Williams is going to be lapped.

    I think the FIA is already chiseling Hamilton's name on the champ trophy.
