So you are going with Honda/Red Bull suddenly gaining a significant performance improvement in the space of a couple of weeks just in time for the last race of the season...having not managed to get close in the past years?
That really is pretty unlikely.

That was then but this is now. With so many Merc PU customer teams now it's getting like a creep show so you better bet on lucky 33

NO. NO. NO. They got it right for the last race after years of languishing on performance and are ready to roll into 2021 ON TOP!!!

A reminder of the promise of Sir Lewis after the 1st race of his 1st season in F1.

Prophetic.

Greetings MK -
Such a great post - Lauda nailed it and so did the other F1 pilots quoted in the article....

As I previously stated, I've only attended one F1 GP and it was the 2008 Monaco GP....the first third of the race was in the wet....the second third was establishing a dry line....and last third was WFO....we had unbelievable seats in Casino Square - the Casino was straight ahead and the Casino Hotel was just to our right - we sat at the right hander in front of a huge screen so we could see the rest of the GP action on-track....there were many fast F1 pilots but the only one that did not lift through the right hander in front of us....HAM - who won the race in his second year in GP.

Is it the end for HAM.

Apparently only a reported 20m $ on the table for HAM.
20% drop in Merc sales and 10,000 redundancies with a top gun ready and waiting to take over is bad reading for the champ.

Agreed.
But the Merc car sales going down 20% is real and happening. The timing for Lewis to negotiate a new super deal seems bad.

LOL! They made about 20 million dollars last year. And the advertising value based on screen metrics was only over 5.4 billion dollars. The value of the team is well over 1.2 billion dollars.

Conjecture hmm you can speak about that with Ola Kallenius. I personally think there is more to it than just the figures you quoted for last year but..if HAM wangles a deal through then good for him!
