Honda is to good to stay where they are. They will catch up and become competitive I think. It just might take some time.

If they have a problem free weekend I think both could score in Monaco. I want to see them conquer Force India on a consistent basis before i set my sight on Red Bull.

That said if they are out in front of Red Bull by mid summer maybe I can get my wish of landing Ricciardo.

I'm amazed how big of a baby nico is being this year. First complaining that Lewis is driving too slow, then the other day blaming the Kimi pass on his brake failure. Even if it was a brake failure he was catching you at a second a lap. Idiot.

Yeah, I rooted for him last season, if only because I hate Lewis Hamilton that much. But this season he is just being a pouty little girl about everything. Don't get me wrong, I still loathe Hamilton, but I no longer want anything good for Nico. It seems Mercedes as a whole have gotten to cocky, then whine when things go awry. Go Vettel/Ferrari!!!

Funny stuff. Lotus F1 Team Mad Max Hybrid.



From the article:
Described as an F1 car "reimagined for a post-apocalyptic future," the Mad Max Hybrid features scary spikes, flame throwers and five-spoke alloy wheels with off-road tires. It also has skulls mounted on the front wing.

4 pictures and full article

i just find it funny that the two drivers with the highest tendency to be involved in a "incident" have mad max on their side pods

The whining last weekend was just too much. These guys have cars with the most down-force of any race car and they still whine and bitch about not being able to pass and I can't do this and I can't do that. Shut up and drive. You wanna make a pass.......keep your foot in it and make an attempt instead of crying for a blue flag (Vettel) when the car is about 2 seconds in front of you. If you can't pass it without the blue flag, you need to go back to go carts..........

Now Bernie and his cronies are having another meeting to discuss how to make F1 good again. Well..........get rid of Bernie first.......

The simple answer to this is to remove all aerodynamic aids. Dan Gurney & others have mentioned it before - yet we all know it'll never happen.

F1 has evolved into its own death over the past 20 years. Your best bet is to watch:

1 - Indycar
2- NASCAR
3 - WEC
4 - MotoGP

-Bernie needs to go
-limited aero
-rock hard tires
-shitty brakes
-full manual gearbox
-beast engines with 1000+hp and torque to make the Earth spin in the opposite direction

Voila, you now have a recipe for great racing, whilst separating the men from the boys
