  • Re: 2017 Snapchat British Grand Prix


    Dude, you liked RBR and Vettel, so of course you'll see it differently. For those of us who didn't, it felt like he won every other race. Which if he won 45% of the races is damn close to being true.

    And if RBR won 53% of the races during that time, that is still domination. Less so than Merc, but still domination. Do you know what the percentage for the other teams are? Like what percentage did Ferrari and McLaren win during those seasons?

    And personally, I'd rather watch 14-16 again over 10-13. 2012 was a very good season, but seeing Vettel just erode Alonso's (who was in the 3rd best car) points lead in the last part of the season was depressing. And then being gifted positions in the final race after the collision he caused at the start sucked complete ass. I'll never watch Brazil 2012 ever again.

    Really trhough man, this is all just a matter of perspective, which I guess we've already established. People who like Vettel and RBR enjoyed 10-13. People who like Hamilton and Merc have enjoyed 14-16. Simple as that really, stats or no stats.
    And people who like Ferrari have been suicidal for close to a decade. I feel like we're all in the same boat here.

    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.

  • 2017 OVO Canadian Grand Prix / 2017 Grand Poutine du Canada

    Greetings.

    We've reached that time of the year where Formula One has landed on American soil. North American-soil. Because luckily for Sergio Perez, we are not in the United States of America, but in Canada. Home of maple leafs, Drake, ice hockey, Drake, maple syrup, Drake, mounties, unconditional hospitality, Aubrey Graham, Degrassi, poutine, countless American refugees who are sick of their own country, a probably unhealthy fascination with professional wrestling, the 6ix, Freddie Ljungberg's alias known as Jacques Villeneuve and Drake. And it's a hometown-race for Canada's very own Lance Stroll! And seeing how the last hometown boy in Jacques Villeneuve drove like even a bigger nutjob as usual every time we've reached Montreal.....Well, I'm sure everything will go alright.

    What it does not have is BACON. CANADA DOES NOT HAVE BACON. THEIR BACON SUCKS. THEIR BACON CAN GO F-

    Bacon is overrated guys.

    The Grand Prix du Canada almost was over before it even got started with Lewis Hamilton having trouble getting over the disappointment that Montreal is not a smaller part of Toronto, the only city that matters in Canada. I feel his pain. Why won't we do a race in Toronto? Post-race podium-interview held by the 6ix god himself, Drake, oh man, oh man.

    Anyway, despite what Barney Stinson told you, Canada is awesome. Montreal usually is awesome. And despite the fact that I find it weird that a bunch of faux-Frenchies are singing God Save The Queen during its anthem, the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve usually is awesome too. So expect people to screw up. That Wall of Champions is probably going to get rammed so hard, the people of Montreal will mistake it for Vince McMahon's nose after he screwed Bret Hart at the Montreal Screwjob in 1997. Who will be screwed at Montreal in 2017 though is most likely, definitely, without a doubt, Fernando Alonso. Imagine being that talented and having to deal with McLaren-Honda's screwups.

    Talk about screw-ups, meet Lance Stroll. He's young, he's rich, but he's young, but still people expected much more. Canada is the perfect place to find great success in smashing into lots of cars, so watch this space. They actually speak French in Montreal. So here's the French translation from a special guest writer, a true French-Canadian.





    Bonjour.


    Salut.

  • Re: MMXVII Formula 1 Grand Prix Predictor Forum Game

    I am not fuzzed. I am well aware of the force of the Afro, I am also aware that the competition is aware of the force of the Afro. With great Afro, comes great envy. Therefore, in order to stop the Afro, I will assume that our nefarious rivals is NOT above altering your great premonitive insight by drugging you, causing acute selective amnesia in order to stop the great rondure of the Afro Lords from delivering you with elitairistic predictions.

    This is a heinous act of which you should take no blame, my Afro-bro.


    In all seriousness, this is just a forum game and uni tasks are obviously much more important. So good luck with them and I hope you'll do good.

    If things really are starting to pile up, I'm willing to take over for a couple of races.
