Moaning about everything!

Asking for consistency isn’t moaning though

Bottas is a waste of a seat 

He did end up on the dirty side which screwed him, the penalty also put max on the clean side

What a drive from Fernando yesterday! Helped by the VSC and a strange strategy from Perez but fair play to him!

Not really a fan of LH or MV but really hope they're as close as possible, as well as the constructors, going into the last race. Will be toxic and fantastic, whatever people's opinions they've both had fantastic seasons and nice to have a proper rivalry!

Worrying thing for Red Bull is Lewis didn’t even use the engine he won in Brazil with. 

Apparently the Brazil engine is going back in for Saudi.

Karen's reaction in recent weeks shows RB are worried. If only Bottas would show up and act as wingman rather than capitulating on the first lap.

The impact of that engine is being overstated though.

Hamilton wasn't the fastest in the speed traps at Brazil, and the speed difference that people kept going on about was 1) exaggerated, and 2) only on some laps where he had DRS, as well as 3) existing for literally every other driver when they had DRS.

Another part of it was you could see Hamilton changing his lines through the final few corners to get the best possible exit onto the main straight which also adds to it. 2 cars enter a straight at the same speed and same engine, the one with the better traction will be going faster at the end of it.

Now add in that the Mercedes is designed for higher top speed and the Red Bull for cornering speed (simplification, but that's the essence of it) and all the factors add up.

There was more to it than just "new engine goes zoom".

Sir Frank Williams has passed away aged 79 ….RIP 

He was the main man when i got into F1 with what seemed a conveyer belt of top drivers like Mansell, Prost, Senna (rip), Hill and Villeneuve. What he achieved whilst already impressive was all the more remarkable given the injuries he received in his 1986 car crash that perhaps should’ve taken his life and left him in a wheelchair. 

Feels like the end of an era in some ways even if the F1 world has moved on
