It was a helluva race. He hunted down Verstappen at the and.

I've been thinking of making a thread for the whole season and update it week by week. If this thread gets some traction I'll make it.

Lewis the GOAT.

Yeah man I'm really enjoying it. I started watching it occasionally a few years ago during football season when I'd wake up early for fantasy updates.

Then after I watched the Netfilx series F1: Drive to Survive I was hooked and I've watched every race this season.

Highly recommend that Netflix series for anyone who hasn't seen it. It's the best way to learn all the drivers and teams and the production value is top notch.

How long until he retires? I remember somebody telling me that Formula 1 drivers typically don't drive as long as NASCAR drivers.

I’m not sure about that at all, good question.

Correction: 2 in a row, Max won the second race of the season. 100th pole and 98 wins (he’ll hit the century mark in no time though). Regardless Lewis is doing his thing this year and he’s got Max as a worthy adversary finally

I thought it was his 98th win? Either way..

Came back from :20+ down with six laps and passed Max like he wasn’t even moving.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas is the GOAT



And this isnt any hate on Lewis - i fu*ks with my plant based dude and he puts the cherry on top of the best team in F1.


But F1 has always been about the best/richest team.

Yeah they're next level. Toto Wolff is the man too.

Christian Horner married to Ginger Spice though.

Does he still drive for Mercedes?

I don't know sh*t about F1 and only watched Drive to Survive on Netflix for one or two seasons so I always wondered this about F1: if you put another driver in that Mercedes would that driver be just as successful as Lewis? Or what if you put Lewis in another car?

People seem to praise the drivers for these races, but it seems like the cars/engineering team deserve the majority of the praise because some cars just flat out perform better than the other cars on the track.

Here’s the thing about Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton in a nutshell: 95% of the field of drivers in F1 could win in a Mercedes, but 95% of the field couldn’t beat Lewis in a Mercedes...that’s what separates him

So if 95% of drivers in F1 could win in a Mercedes, then that means 95% of the field can't beat anybody in a Mercedes?

More or less . Depending on the circumstances (rain, mechanical failure, strategy fu*k up) other teams have, and do win. In this current season only Redbull have that opportunity to really go head to head with Mercedes. If you look at the history of F1 championships, it’s always been streaks of dominant teams winning (Merc, Ferrari, Redbull, McLaren) with a few other teams peppered in there here and there.

Regardless it doesn’t take away from any of those drivers who were champs because they’ve been proven/highly skilled in other cars (Schumacher, Vettel, Hamilton, Senna, etc)

Yeah I was following F1 for a bit after watching the series on Netflix, but it seems like Mercedes just wins everything. Felt like I was just following along to see who can beat Mercedes instead of who won.

Definitely a cool sport, but the advantage some cars have over others, regardless of the driver, seems kinda unfair. You can have the best driver in the world but if the car doesn't have money thrown into it then it can never win.

Yea Mercedes outright dominated the hybrid era, before that it was Redbull k*lling sh*t with the V-8’s, but there will be new FIA regulations that are enacted in 2022 that bring up new engineering changes/philosophy so it could be someone else on top

I think they are also limiting the amount of money teams can spend on R&D annually or something like that which will also have some impact.

I vaguely remember season 3 of the Netflix series mentioning something about a regulation or a rule that would even out the field more starting this season.

Mercedes still dominating.
