so maybe patience is beginning to run out on Max given he's had enough time in the time but he seems to be crashing more
A potential front row and 1-2 opportunity all gone in a bang How long is it before Max Verstappen gets labelled being more Maldonado/ De Crasharis like rather than Senna
I am trying to compare Verstappen's career to Hamilton's and I just can't remember the number of times Hamilton actually buried the car into the barriers as that often as Verstappen. People were on Lewis' backs waiting for him each time he got into an incident.... Verstappen is living on reputation at the moment. Lucky for him they are not people in the Red Bull hierarchy questioning his position in the team and touting for other drivers like some other famous orange and red coloured teams do
If Ricciardo wins this race, as is likely, then he will have taken both of those opportunities that Verstappen blew. That’s not a good look for Verstappen, and the first real challenge of his fledgling career.
teabagyokel It had to come eventually where Max will face his toughest test
I am cheating a bit but the F2 races ... disastrous weekend for all the Brits including Albon with poor race results except for Norris who stretched his championship lead to a massive 29pts already
Renault development driver Markelov moves to 2nd with a win in the feature race
Latifi whose Dad bought a stake in Mclaren could only muster 9th and 8th so hardly a case to justify promoting him to Mclaren next season
Max Verstappen in the wall at Monaco.
Further down the grid the following deserves praise
Ocon- 6th - where did that come from ? Besides Verstappen missing from quali
Sainz 8th - he is a bit of a specialist on the track but not getting the results
Gasly 10th - just a reminder to Red Bull that Sainz is not the only driver trying to get the Red Bull drive
Sirotkin 13th - That to me is some performance given how awful Williams were last race and he has struggled but he has managed to put 0.5 seconds on Stroll and make it into Q2 - I hope he is not still trying to use his PS4 to learn the track. I did not think Williams were going to make it out of Q1
No matter where he finishes, as long as he finishes, his drive will be lauded as magnificent. If he scores points it'll be through strategy and others's misfortune and not through his own skill.
In fact, given the hype-machine, nothing less than a win should be acceptable.
Galahad He had better figure out soon because I think Red Bull might be start wondering did we bag our eggs in the wrong basket. Usually the Red Bull production line as a string of drivers ready to take over so it wont be long they start discussing the pairing should be Sainz and Gasly
I thought what Ricciardo said was telling that at Monaco you can't overdrive the car. Now Verstappen binned quiet badly at Monaco twice
Il_leone please don't post about F2 in the F1 thread. Some of us watch it on catch up
Il_leone you have to wonder. We know its likely that red bull will lose a driver in 2019. Now will they think that Verstappen is just too hassle for the worth. Will keep the consistency & depenable Riccardio his new contract. Verstappen would be wanted at mercedes maybe ferrari, but i think leclerc has jumped him in the queue replacing kimi
