Vettel is the priority over Leclerc
Good? Maybe so. How long that will last?

Over years perhaps some fans didn't know that, others know about it but chose to ignore it. I fall into a group who knew this for quite a while, and chose to believe that this strategy remains in place even today, although Arri might have violated this tradition to small extend last year. From friendship he wanted Kimi to win Monza as good bye present. Needles to say it didn't go well with Vettel.
RasputinLives in both of them incidents he was thinking far too short term & not enough long term. in Singapore in 1 off race or title decider I would have probally agreed. it was a move he had to make to keep the lead of the grand prix & just became unlucky of circumstance. but vettel had no need to make such drastic move he was on pole his rival was in a struggling 5th he was on verge of turning around a 3pt deficit to a 12 pt advantage with 6 races to go. even I could see as clear as day before it had started raining. it was of upmost importance that vettel got through the 1st corner clean, even if it meant short term pain in 2nd. but no he was too impatient & broke the famous racing rule you cant win it at the 1st corner but you can certainty lose it & after that race where vettel should've had a 12pt lead, becoming a favourite to win a 5th title Ferrari 1st in a decade. Ferrari faced a 28pts gap & it all steadily unravelled to point where lewis was able to coast with 3 races to spare
same in Italy Ferrari 1-2 on their home turf, just easily beaten Mercedes last time out, momentum was with Ferrari it was obvious that he wouldve had the race pace to win that race & then with momentum they go into Singapore 1 of their favourite track with the chance to go level at the very least with victory with lewis in championship with just 6 races remaining but no again his impatience shone through. I have to have it on the 1st lap even though there are 52 laps & 1 or 2 pit stops left. does a ridiculous move that was never going to work
F1Brits_90 Hamilton did the exact same starrline move at the next GP (with no crash) so was he short sighted too? Hindsight often brings wisdom.
but it wasnt hindsight. i said on the Saturday that verstappen can stick 1 up the inside on race day. because if vettel has any sense he will jump out of the way
there are so many times that vettel impatience has cost him & blame verstappen rightly for the same issues 1st 6 races of 2018 but forgive vettel for same issues
Ferrari's Binotto sees 'heavier' 2019 cars 1.5s slower
Only until lights out at Melbourne. After that it’s meaningless.
For indirect tobacco advertising. I find this quite confusing but I suppose they are really fighting for the consumer here. They are ready to have the cars seizured if the sponsorship of smoking products is ascertained.
Sorry, couldn’t find a link in English.
Vettel "will run" first day (and sleeping in cockpit), Leclerc next day, which is better, I think. There is usually very little action on Monday, as systems have to be tested, etc. This was a good job for junior, however as it happened, and I do not want to keep score, but for start - advantage Leclrec.
Why Sebastian Vettel at last has Red Bull at Ferrari
Pressure, real or perceived, is ON!
Luckily Seb is not usually reading "news" about himself, however Ferrari fans have a lot to cheer for going into opening round. Rivals are probably unmoved, hoping Mercedes will tighten "screws" shortly. Well, this year its not just Sebastian and the "other one". Le Clerc, Verstappen and maybe several others cannot be discarded either. Its going to be tight in the first corner.
Our dear friend Meph had a very interesting hypothesis about matt surfaces and benefits to airflow, he got all scientific on it and it really did make a lot of sense as he'd done some very detailed research.
Let him know
Lose his phone number
Let the forum decide! Can we add a poll?
Get the curmudgeonly old bugger back on board.
It's becoming more apparent that TBY has handed his moustache back and exited stage left so we need some of that off the wall humour back.
Plus his nemesis was banned a long time ago. (for which, as so long has passed, I can now reveal was for making a physical threat against a forum user in a private message!!)
All together now:
"Bring back Meph, Bring back Meph, Bring back Meph, and while we're at it Corona lemonade but that's another issue, Bring back Meph! "
