Il_leone,

BTW, on one thread you seem to be claiming that Ferrari have been cheating to achieve parity with M-B, yet here you seem to be claiming that Mercedes is not the superior car. How are the two assertions compatible?

Its only a theory based on what Verstappen suggested after the US GP why Ferrari are slow and off the pace when up to now they have been the quickest car. I was more pointing to the fact that if Ferrari were caught cheating I 'd doubt they would be thrown out of the championship and fined $100m like Mclaren were. I never said they were deliberately cheating to be at the front since the summer. It seems Verstappen's words have got Ferrari riled and vehemently defending themselves. I presume their car has been scrutineered to pass the regulations

You are now admitting Ferrari are inferior.. certainly the first 5 races of the season they should have won all of them but they kept screwing things up which the majority of people who have watched the whole season would agree.

Bottas should not be 2nd in the championship ..it should be one of the Ferrari drivers and in my opinion based on performance that should be Leclerc - the number of times Ferrari have screwed him over this season

The last sentence from Palmer's column sums up Hamilton

"If Hamilton is going to have a serious rival next year, someone is going to have to up their game, because the truth is, whatever the car, there is nobody out there at the moment at his level."

He is a class above the rest this season

If 2020 carries on from the previous 6 seasons,some of the records that looked untouchable by Michael Schumacher will no doubt be beaten by Lewis Hamilton. Who would have thought that when he left McLaren at the end of 2012.

I think that his return to McLaren in 2021
if Mercedes will be out from F1
is more real than variant with Ferrari.
Especially since McLaren returns to Mercedes engines.
I. e the configuration is the same as it was from 2007 to 2012

What about the Ferrari drive for 2021 we keep hearing about now?

i dont see McLaren. unless red bull get desperate & re sign sainz. sainz & lando seems set for yrs

you dont have convince me ive had a feeling for Lewis to go to Ferrari for a year. i think the timing is right if he equals Schumacher in 2020. its like england manager job very rarely does it get turned down & i feel there would be a regret if he hadnt raced for tifosi. this is just me but in f1 there are 3 races above all you want to achieve. home race monaco & monza in a ferrari

I will only Express my personal opinion:
taking into account the entire background of the relationship,
I would be very disappointed if Lewis agreed to a contract at Ferrari.

For example, my perception of Ron Dennis changed a lot
after McLaren re-signed Alonso, despite everything that happened in 2007.

Although I understand that it would be interesting to see Hamilton struggling
with a competitive teammate in Ferrari.

I had a Twitter conversation with someone today.

They maintained that Lewis Hamilton had only ever won a championship with a Finnish teammate.






























I pointed out that Nico Rosberg is German.

Well Nico did race under the Finnish flag when he was younger and his Dad is Finnish
