BOT actually isn't allowed to win the race , and he already knows it . Because HAM needs the 25 points from P1 to hold MAX off in the ranking !
While BOT needs the driver points badly on P5 with only 16 points in the ranking !

If you ask me : This can be really interesting ....
With Bot's growing disenchantment of his life at Merc it will be very 'interesting'' to say the least if he emerges as the leader after the first bend.
He's been holding the mantle of lap dog for too long and being the quickest quali man it's now his chance of putting his stamp down.

While two dogs are fighting for a bone, a third dog (MAX) runs away with it !

I would say that would be the ideal freshly set strategy for Max

15 min. ago , I was reading a Dutch article regarding Helmut Marko's latest comment after Q3 !

I'll try to translate the Dutch article to English ..

Marko cynical after qualifying in Portugal: "Mercedes is very sporty" !!!


MAX saw his first fastest time in the third part of qualifying. It meant that the Dutchman had to work hard again in the final phase, although that run did not go as desired. In addition to the bad track conditions, according to MAX, this was due to traffic, in particular to Sebastian Vettel in the third sector. Before that, Norris had already heard over the on-board radio that MAX was on his way: "MAX still has to set a time, don't give him any presents," McLaren whispered in his ear from the pit wall.

Helmut Marko turned out not to be pleased with that message and even suspects control by Mercedes, which supplies McLaren and Aston Martin with engines. "During the second run, Lando Norris was told not to help MAX, very sporty from the Mercedes team ...", Marko says somewhat cynically to the Austrian Servus TV. "After that, Vettel was of course also very busy keeping his own car on the track ... Anyway, it was pretty unfortunate."

It's good you put that on and it figures in that blocking Max by other Merc supplied teams would hinder him in some way. I've always said that dirty tricks can play a role coming into play but it's good at least that Checo is there with Max to have a sporting chance at raining on their parade.
That Max had Alb last season who was rarely up there yet managed to win two races without back up shows a true Senna talent.

More ....

"The Mercedes sporty conspiracy" Helmut Marko was right !
It's for sure , something unusual happened there during his last Q3 lap...

MAX's language of frustration over the onboard radio ! He wasn't happy ... Enjoy !

Positive my friend .
BTW : The vibrations on MAX steering wheel and cockpit from yesterday was a bad set of Pirelli tyres .
The tyres were very bad balanced during the production process and ran out of spec . That's why his steering wheel and cockpit were shaking like crazy ...

No new warp speed mode in the W12.

Max didn't deliver in a faster car. They even brought upgrades.

Don't start making excuses, my friend. There are hundreds of posts on these forums with the speed of the RB16B and how Max is the future 2021 WDC.

This is F1. You don't help your competition with a tow.

Have you noticed that each time Max doesn't deliver the excuses come out to protect the fragile baby?

Another day of excuses, let's see what excuses are used tomorrow. Maybe he will expect cars to move out of the way tomorrow.

Wasn't a good outting for Ric. He was a long way off Norris in q1. Hopefully he can pick things up.

F1 REALism is here.

HAM has 7 championships and VER has 0 yet there are those who say VER is the best driver on the grid. VER has 120 odd races, 11 wins, 4 pole positions and 11 fastest laps. He's The Most Hyped Driver in the history of Formula One.

What tow ?
Lando and SEB knew that MAX was in his last fast lap of Q3 .
But they didn't moved for MAX while he was coming , by this MAX couldn't run on the fastest lines of the track and he lost precious time ...
But if HAM would come in his last fast lap , they would "jump aside" !

The fragile baby ?
We'll see that tomorrow who will protect the fragile baby (HAM) , when BOT pulls it from P1 .
MAX won't need anyone to protect his A$$ , as he is used to make his own race alone without the help from a lap dog like BOT .
And "IF" It's really necessary , "There can be only one" And BOT will be sabotaged by Mercedes !
It wouldn't be the first time ...Ask the Russell boy !

What kind of excuses had HAM at IMOLA in the gravel trap ?
As he is the ultimate rain driver ?

Let me help you mate ...
His A$$ in the gravel was saved by the RED-Flag , because his lap dog BOT crashed just in time ...

If his A$$ wasn't so lucky , MAX would lead the ranking with 26 points ahead !

1 for facts - 0 for your BS !

Right ! The F1 Mercedes conspiracy company ( actually 8 cars in the run ) screwed it up for MAX .
In other words : Lando and SEB in MAX's last Q3 fast lap .
But we aren't worried mate . This season isn't over "YET" !

Grandma the lap dog took the pole ?
I agree , hope for him they won't sabotage him ..
As I said above : It wouldn't be the first time !

More excuses and nonsense.
If they impeded Max they would get a penalty. Who would risk that for another team?

Norris and Vettel jumped aside for Max, mate..

i watched Max's, Norris' and Vettel's lap while Max was on fast lap as well.. both got the gap info systematically from their race engineers to Max.. and they moved aside.. its at 1:30:30 if you want to see it yourself..
