  • Re: The Formula 1 Stuff Thread


    Mercedes | Hamilton / Bottas
    Ferrari | Vettel / Grosjean
    Red Bull | Ricciardo / Verstappen
    Force India | Ocon / Perez
    Williams | Wehrlein / Stroll
    Haas | LeClerc / Magnussen
    Renault | Hulkenberg / Sirotkin
    Toro Rosso | Sainz / Gasly
    McLaren | Alonso / Vandoorne
    Sauber | Ericsson / Matsushita

    To elaborate:

    Mercedes: They like Ham and Bot and vice versa.

    Ferrari: Kimi out because old and because Leclerc finna win the F2-championship and now needs a drive. But Ferrari don't do rookies and Haas is competitive enough to please young Charles. Grosjean moves up because he's good, Ferrari likes him and Perez doesn't open up a spot for Leclerc.

    Red Bull: Honestly, they should consider making their own engines, Red Bull could maybe pull it off. Because Max' biggest gripe is the Renault-engine. Still, both drivers are very pleased and settled within the team.

    Force India: No better place to go for both drivers, with top-team spots hard to come by. Ocon won't mind, as this is effectively his rookie-season.

    Williams: Massa retiring after all, stays around the team to mentor Stroll. Wehrlein to Williams because Mercedes and because Sauber is getting Honda-engines. I hope he doens't **** off the team.

    Haas: Grosjean leaves, F2-champion Leclerc joins, Magnussen has proven to be a solid driver who could lead the team, so stays.

    Renault: Hulk still kicking himself that he isn't at Mercedes right now, but whatever, maybe Renault is actually good in 2018. Next to him is Sirotkin, who has been linked with the team for a while and is the main reason Renault was only handing out one-year-contracts for the second seat. Can't imagine it being anyone else but Sirotkin. Well, maybe Alonso, but that is a huge stretch.

    Toro Rosso: Kvyat drops out because he's been crap since his demotion. Gasly gets the chance to deliver. Sainz is stuck.

    McLaren: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Sauber: MAUAUFHUAFOAUFJA THEY ACTUALLY SWITCHED TO HONDA-ENGINES THE FOOLS oh well, they're getting in a Honda-protege now then. Also Ericsson is never leaving. How much money can a Swede have, really?

    Wouldn't exactly say that it evens each other out when Bottas grabs wins when Hamilton has an off-day while Raikkönen just finishes behind Vettel when he has an off-day. Bottas, when finishing ahead of Hamilton, has almost always also finished ahead of Vettel, taking two race wins and a podium away from him.

    At the moment, thanks to the bigger points gap between 1st and 2nd and 3rd and 4th compared to 4th and 5th, Bottas has actually taken more points off from Vettel than off from Hamilton. It's 17 to 10 and I'm not counting the Canadian GP where Bottas finished 2nd and Vettel 4th, because even with a weak team-mate, both Mercedes' would've ended up in front of Vettel.

    So if Lewis had a vastly inferior team-mate, he'd have been further behind in the championship now. Right now, the competitive team-mate strategy is working better than the designated second driver strategy.

    Oh look Grosjean is crying about the brakes again, no idea why people think he's good enough for Ferrari....
    You're having problems letting things go, don't you?
    Nope, just stating a fact, it's you who has a problem with my opinion.
    I have a problem with your attitude. As in not caring enough to actually reply to an argument in a topic, which is fine by me, but then to go on to make your point in a different topic the second Grosjean is having issues, because you're having issues with people rating Grosjean enough as a potential Ferrari-driver at the same time.

    Also, Grosjean not being good enough because he complains over a radio isn't a fact. Just your opinion. Let's be clear on that one.
    Wait what? Reply to what? I'm not sure who is arguing about it, having the opinion that he isn't good enough for Ferrari isn't an argument.
    Different topic. You know which one.

    And it isn't a fact either, so stop pretending it is one.
    What? So it's not a fact that he complains about the brakes each and every race? What the hell have you been watching. I get it you don't like my opinion,  but guess what, I don't give a crap what you think, get over it already...
    That much is obvious. Which is why you dodge arguments whenever people disagree with you and respond with anything beyond two sentences, yet you still are petty enough to click dislike-buttons instead of attempting to conduct yourself in a discussion. It's why I rarely discuss things with you. Seeing things from different perspectives aren't your strong suit.


    You basically implied Grosjean isn't good enough because he complained about brakes. The issue is that I've tried to debate that, you've ignored it, which is fine by me, but then you make a remark about not getting why people think he's good enough for Ferrari the second he has a team-radio about brakes, in a completely different topic. Talk about needing to get over stuff. It's like if Grosjean got 3rd or something and I'd say something like "and people think he is the least deserving driver to sign for Ferrari". Like I said, having trouble letting things go?

    How about you get over me disagreeing with you without demonstrating how appalled you actually are by different opinions with snide little remarks like that next time? Or click a disagree-button if you're not up for it, whatever.

    How so? It's not my fault you don't understand the word I used.... 

    You know, that's an ironic statement to make when someone gives you the definition of a word, explains how his stance is based on that definition and you still don't get his point and read over what he's saying.

    The point is that Wenger as a man is not a bottler, because he is not fragile mentally. He rarely responds to heavy criticism in an erratic manner. Wenger as a manager is responsible for teams that bottles a title campaign. That does not make him a bottler as an individual. Same way Mourinho's teams are known for deliver in crunch time, but I would not look at Mourinho as a person as the beacon of mental strength at the same time, because of the way he lets so many stuff get to him and provoke a reaction out of him.

    That's the point EUfkdup is trying to make here. And it doesn't mean Wenger isn't responsible. But being responsible =/= being a bottler in his sense of the word. And seeing how he backs it up with a definition, I think he makes a valid point.


    To put it in an analogy, if Wenger tried to kill himself on his own, he would succeed. He would not bottle his own suicide. If Wenger managed a team of people who would all try to kill themselves, they would just end up as quadriplegics in hospitals with broken necks, but they would still be alive. The group of people Wenger is responsible for, bottled their own suicide.

    tl;dr: He isn't a bottler, but he breeds bottlers.

    In the end, I still ended up making it grim....
