This is excellent news.
More dutch speaking drivers

Mick has had a very disappointing season. He was always the faster driver when Mazepin was on his side, but obviously continously outclassed by Kmag.

My prediction:
1. LEC

5. HAM
6. PER
7. ALO
8. NOR
9. OCO
10. BOT

I think this track will suit the Ferrari's, and that LEC will finish 2nd in the WDC.
I think PER won't be able to keep in pace with the rest.
Mercedes for me is the big questionmark. Their stamina on tyres really impressed me last sunday.
(and again, RUS taking the strategic initiative during the race too; he may whine a lot but his pro active approach on strategy during the race many times this year is refreshing.)
Ferrari has read this memo and will do their best to make sure it doesn't happen

Just look back to two races before Brazil, COTA and MEX. In quali Mercs were down .6 sec at COTA and .3 sec in MEX. Interlagos is just different. Has Merc made gains from their terrible 1sec+ off the pace in early season...sure. But they are still quite a ways off pace at the more modern tracks(which now makeup most of the schedule). Max's race pace was still dominate prior to Brazil.

Love the Yas Marina GP

I was lucky enough to drive the track in an AM GT3 a few years ago.

Uh oh. That's gonna be an interesting pairing. I can hear the team radios now:

"Kevin, please let Nico through."

"Suck my balls, honey."

I'm sure they'll all get on fine then

BTW the Honda is great, it has a HUGE tachometer in the middle of the dash just like on the 911 TURBO.

Wolff has said they are still behind and hinted that Interlagos 'fell into their lap' if that's true.
Max erroneously got those 2 penalty points and no way will it stop him from challenging HAM at the fast approaching Arab race to get that 15th win.
Max and Checo have shook hands so will hopefully do the same one-two as last time there to dilute the Merc threat. Ferrari have run out of money for upgrades apparently so can't really expect them to be up there apart from Sainz maybe with his fresher PU.

Who can believe all the sandbagging BS from Wolff with his malicious pokerface ?

Abu Dhabi ?
That's "MAX vs HAM/RUS "

It won't be easy for MAX , we've seen how fast the Merc in Brazil was ..
Mercedes won the pole , sprintrace and race !
IMHO the Merc will be also very fast at Abu Dhabi .Made by corruption !

MAX has nothing to lose / Mercedes can lose a lot

MAX has said after the race in Brazil : Just wait , at Abu Dhabi I'll take"him" just like he took me !
Sounds very promising to me ...

Can't wait !

Even with Max winning the championship in AD I'm still sore with what happened on the first lap there with Max on the inside of him and 'him' going off with no investigation,what? and at interlagos now Max on the outside getting hit by him, not going off and gets penalised,it must be rao in the stewards also

That's for sure !
HAM cutted off the complete S's , by this HAM got his 2.5 sec. gap and MAX lost his DRS !

Max said over his onboard : Right , and he doesn't to give the position back ?
That moment was a true shame for motorsports !

Rao ?
By this corruption b1tch , the hundreds of millions Red Bull development costs and efforts was all for nothing ..

Long live the Mercedes kangaroo !

Are there yachts in Abu Dhabi? I'd love to meet Checo. I heard that's where you can find him.

Well is Mick Schumacher our and Nick Hulkenberg back in at Haas, lets see how they both get on.

I'd say that's the end of Micks F1 career, going the same way as Ralf?

I think so.

I'd love to see Mick succeed and he's certainly a capable driver but I don't see a championship driver nor do I see any team that would benefit from his presence at the moment.

The only one driver that I think Mick would be an upgrade to, a small one though, would be Stroll.
