It's funny watching the vid and knowing that he is not pushing that car at all and the passengers are still getting the ride of their life. I love taken people out for rides when my car was running, they would have a blast. Well at least most. I had one guy who almost threw up in my car.Lewis is alright...............I guess
Details about the car? Come, help a brother out......It's funny watching the vid and knowing that he is not pushing that car at all and the passengers are still getting the ride of their life.

It's was just a 2103 Mustang GT turned race car. Left the engine stock and detuned it to run NASA ST3. Then eventually took the tune off and ran it in ST2. I was way under powered for ST2, but it was more fun as it was more competitive than ST3. Most of the work on the car was the safety stuff and suspension, such as MCS double remotes. Brakes were PowerBrake motor sports brakes (A company from SA trying to get into the US market. Good brake for a good price.) One day I hope to get it on the track and start racing again. Hit a Porsche two years ago now and other expenses took away the racing budget.Details about the car? Come, help a brother out......
I think he's a dumbass (for leaving Red Bull) and maybe he's not as talented as he thinks he is
Interesting perspective. I view it as Red Bull clearly chose Max as their #1 driver and driver of the future. If Ricciardo truly thinks he is great and deserves to be treated as the #1 then he had no choice but to leave and prove himself. Outside of going to Mercedes or Ferrari it was going to be an uphill battle for him no matter where he went. I do think there is a lot of pressure on him to perform and validate his move. I guess we'll just have to watch and see how it unfolds. Max has definitely matured and refined himself so it is looking like Red Bull made the right choice for now.I think he's a dumbass (for leaving Red Bull) and maybe he's not as talented as he thinks he is
For me, it's both. I don't really think that the talent gap is so huge between drivers as the commentators like to think there is. You absolutely have to have the hardware under your butt in order to finish on the podium in Formula 1. The only drivers who I feel are not "great drivers" are Grosean, Giovanazzi, and Stroll. All of those guys can drive better than me, so I'm not casting shade on them. I'm just saying that of the 20, these 3 don't measure up to the other 17 from what I've seen.....and I'm talking dumb things done on the track. Give Lando Norris or George Russell a Merc and they would likely podium. Hardware is vitally important. The 3 best drivers as far as talent go (again in my opinion) are Hamilton, Verstappen and LeClerc....but even these guys would never podium in a Haas or Williams car. They are talented drivers in exceptional vehicles......Similarly related, regarding the drivers that we are fans of... are y'all fans of certain drivers because of their on track style and performance or other reasons?.....
I personally would be surprised if Vettel lasted much longer. The fire doesn't seem to be there anymore. His radio transmission last year after a retirement due to mechanical problems, "God I wish we could bring back the f-ing V12s" revealed to me a lot about his comfort/outlook on modern F1 (and I wholeheartedly agreed with the sentiment). I don't think he is ultimately comfortable with the turbo-hybrid drivetrain and may feel like a has-been even though I don't think he is. LeClerc gave him fits too...younger, faster and nowhere to go but up. If Vettel ever beats LeClerc in drivers standings I would be amazed. The worst thing that could ever happen to Vettel in F1 is if he were to get released by Ferrari (unless he got picked up by Merc). I don't think he could win in this area without one of the best two or 3 cars.I like Danny and think he's move was a good one for him. I really wanted to see how Vettel was going to handle LeClerc this year. Last year LeClerc gave him lots of trouble. One of my favorite drivers is Kimi, he is the best at driver's interviews.
They did so because Ricciardo gave them no other choice. I think his performance did not measure up to Verstappen's in 2018.Red Bull clearly chose Max as their #1 driver and driver of the future.
I had little doubt that Honda was going to come in hard. Honda doesn't take defeat lightly and they're no strangers to F1.I honestly did not think Honda was going to preform as well as it did as fast as it did when red bull took them on. (Did anyone ? Lol ) I dont blam McLaren for dumping them after those 3 years of "growing pains" But is pretty ironic to watch red bull reap the rewards of those 3 years of trial and error at Honda. After Red bull talked so much trash about Renault during the v6 era.
The soap opera of f1 is better than the racing lol
I must agree with you about the noise. Them v10 screamers were something else. I’ve only ever heard the old demo cars they have floating around still, but it’ll make your hair stand up.I think the hybrid technology of the modern V6 is cool, but I miss that demonic V10 scream!
I think Ric or Sainz are real possibilities. I do wonder if Vettel just leaves F1 altogether or gives it a shot elsewhere on a cheap 1 or 2 year contract. Maybe he does what Weber did and races in a different organization to finish his career.Just announced over the evening hours: Vettel out at a Ferrari after this season.
Alright, F1 fans, who Do you think will take his place? I think one strong possibility is Danny Ric, but only because his contract at Renault is up after this season.
All I know is: I’m ready for some racing. This virus stuff is getting old.
Yep.That's about the only team left is the former Force India, Former Racing Point, soon-to-be Aston Martin. Then will Hulkenberg come back to Renault? I think though no more championships for Seb. He was fun to watch in his early days, but now he's a shadow of himself. I think the final straw was when he got robbed in Canada. At least he showed some spunk even after the screwing over by moving the #1 sign and refusing at first to go up to the podium.
No argument he made a mistake, but these rules I think take away from the racing. The save he pulled off actually saved Hamilton. I seriously don't know how he managed to not crash into the wall and/or Hamilton (yes, I know old Louis lifted). However, go back and look at some of the 70's and 80's stuff. Much more aggressive defense and such and I think most would say 70's to early 90's the hey-day for F-1. Shumacher was among the worst at what I'd say was almost belligerent driving in 90's and early 2000's.Seb would have won Canada.... IF he kept it on track... he gave that race away. If he would not have made a mistake that race would not have been "stolen" from him buy the FIA..
The same FIA that seems to be covering up Ferrari engines last year may not have been 100% legal? So I dont think the FIA is as much on Mercedes cock as Ferrari fans tell themself they are
That was just another Seb mistake in the line of them.. cant blame Ferrari for wanting to go another way.
