The Orlen cash has just cleared. Kubica's driving tomorrow. I'd rather see Schwartz, Illiot or Mick in that car, but OK, whatever.

Made the mistake of getting in a dispute with the rabid Kubica fans.

Kubica fans: Alfa will sabotage him and that's why he'll be slow tomorrow.

Me: Or maybe it's because he is slow, Russell 21-0 remember?

Kubica fans: He'd not driven in 10 years

Me: Renault - Hungary test 2017
Williams - Oct and Nov 2017
Williams - Spain FP1 2018
Williams - post season test 2018 (+ Russell, but Kub did more laps)
Williams - year of sim driving in 2018

Kubica fans: It would be embarrassing if Russell didn't beat somebody with one arm who hadn't driven in a decade in an unpredicatable car.

Me: So, when he's slow tomorrow, is it because of that, or because of Alfa sabotaging him?

Kubica fans: It’s practice. Who cares. He’s their test driver

Blant track, but usually good for racing. Looking forward to it.

:rofl:
Whoa. You really can't get over the fact Kubica scored more points then Russell last year? Hell, Russell's been given 14 more races this year and he's STILL scored less points than one-armed Kubica :rofl:

Are you the manchild behind Has George Russell scored points yet?

I really hope Hamilton will quit at the end of the year, Russell gets his spot, Perez gets the Williams drive, Hulk the Red Bull drive and then Russell thrashes Bottas and takes the title next year.

If you are right on all that (I'd love it if you were) could I trouble you for the winning lotto numbers sometime please? ;)

Not going to happen.... for a start Hulk has admitted talks with Red Bull have stalled and he has heard nothing for weeks. Plus Lewis isnt going to retire. Just an idle threat to negotiate a better deal. This week he was saying he has a few years left in him yet.

@Star I wouldnt be asking @DoubleFart about lottery tickets, although maybe whatever medication he is on might be the way to go. :suspicious: :haha:

Russell might score points in DTM though. There's always hope :whistling:

I almost feel your pain. Russell's F1 results don't give his fans any real proof to defend him so they have to rely on "What might have been" fanasty stories :tongue: Even Latifi didn't crash under safety car!

admittedly, and in defence of @Vassago - the Williams this year has been a more competitive car than last year's edition was. Season isn't over for Russell, however.

The irony coming from a Kubica fan, whose entire premise of championing him are "what might have been" stories about Ferrari contracts and if he'd not crashed his rally car.

PS, was 21-0 a "what might have been" fantasy story, or was it a comprehensive thrashing that binned Kubica's chances of another F1 seat?

It's incredibly obvious which driver is better. And Russell is only 22 so he's excused.

Should Verstappen be making mistakes like he did at Turkey though, after 6 seasons in F1?

I commend Robert for what he achieved in dealing with his limitations and actually making it back to F1, but the reality is he is not contributing, or worthy of a drive on pace. I think even his most ardent fans would understand his principal role within Alfa Romeo is as provider of funds for the team from his Orlen association.

Im not really sure where his future within motor racing might lie. His performance in DTM was hardly impressive. As this article asks, is it time for RK to call it quits.

Thanks for the heads up @Everso Biggyballies :thumbsup:

I seriously doubt Hamilton will retire but then again, how much more of a deal does he need? Isn't he on something like £40 million a year already?

Meanwhile, Haas are looking to leverage their experience in American ovals to have one up on everyone else:

I saw a clip of.. I wanna say Lando Norris, passing Dani Kvyatt around the outside of turn 4, at Sakhir. It was outrageous. Someone wanna do the hard work for me and root out a clip?
