F1 2021

New thread.

So what do we think this year?

I’m sticking my neck out and going for a Merc and Lewis double with Max second in the championship.

Looking on skybet Russell is 33/1, looks like they’re hedging their bets.

Oh and Silverstone tickets bought for me and the old man for 2021 so hopefully this madness is all over we have a full season and we can all play out at some point

Hamilton to get his 8th

Its a very long season (if all races go ahead) I think bottas will pip Verstappen to 2nd but only becuase bottas will finish more races than max.

I'm also I am incredibly jealous you are going to Silverstone. Haven't been since 2017 highly doubt I'll be going this year as I'm hoping to buy a house.

Read today that Daimler don't want to pay the wages Lewis is asking for
If that’s right they’ll find out the hard way this season what a difference he makes. I’d probably lump on Max if that was the case.

EDIT - As an aside I’m very interested in seeing how McLaren get on, probably my 2 favourite drivers on the grid in one team.

As a polar opposite, Seb and Stroll rolling around at the back would be class, mugs.

I can see Hamilton leaving F1 if he wins his eighth title.
He must be thinking a bigger challenge to him and the team would be to lose the title.

If he does leave I can see him either doing Cross Country Rallying like the Dakar or GT's. The GT World Challenge Europe. Spring Cup or Endurance Cup. He would brilliant in that. In a Mercedes AMG-GT3. I would love to see Lewis do that.

I think the new guys coming from F2 will do well.

They probably don't but that's a stage every salary negotiation gets stuck at some time or other. This is late mind! Ineos are now an equal partner so I expect it's something to do with them expecting the other stakeholders to bear more of the cost, bit of posturing, line in the sand stuff.

I'm also going to stick my neck on the line and say Lewis and Merc to clinch an 8th title.

I think McLaren are going to be a bit of a thorn in the side of Merc and Red Bull this season, I wouldn't be surprised to see them pick up a couple of wins with the Mercedes engine in the back now.

I'm also hoping they'll confirm George Russell for 2022 by the summer break, but not before Bottas has another "to whom it may concern" moment.
 
Going to make sure I don’t miss a race this year. I think it could be Lewis’ last year but he will become the undisputed GOAT.

Going to try to get to one or two, hopefully Spain, maybe Britain.

Lewis to win it.

I would like to see Alonso and Mazepin have a miserable time as both lack professionalism. For differing reasons.

Max needs to have more cleaner races without incident.

McLaren to continue to improve and be “Best fun team”

And hopefully Williams to make improvements.

Daimler boss and Toto apparently are not best buddies. If Lewis or Toto left for whatever reason I could see the other one following them out ze door!

I've just bought tickets for Thursday to Sunday from F1 official. Farm corner.

You can always get cheap tickets for Monaco if you are willing to sit on the hill.

The hotel we stayed in Nice was a fortune.

They all put their prices up.

I nearly got on a boat one year but got let down as I was not important enough.
