Yes mate . I would love that too . But as we know the prancing horse is too slow for the moment .
In normal circumstances he will only see the Red Bull 33 tail wing .

So. I wonder if the improvements Ferrari is claiming for this weekend, a week early, benefit the Other Ferrari powered Teams as well. Or just the factory team?.

Hilariously, almost everyone that learns his name asks if it is from Star Wars.

Interesting tactics - as said by Lewis last year at the Monza qualifying.


But realistically, Bottas is usually slower in race form and probably wasn't holding Lewis up. And maybe he was pushing real hard in quali and genuinely screwed up.
Yup. I thought the same thing about the race. Seemed like Bottas knew about the penalty and was trying to back him into the pack. I wouldnt blame him if that was his tactic, is pretty smart. Those 15 points could be huge!

actually i thought about the same right after the decision that Lewis ll have a penalty.. could be fast swap and Lewis could stretch out a bit but i guess they didnt do it since cars were problematic and its the first race of the season.. but something tells me that Bottas wont be a team player that much this year.. if he can be champion it can work but if he wont im not sure big heads at Merc' d like to keep him for 2021 as a team player.. its a very thin line for him and both sides except the straight line is full of poo..
