The Formula 1 Stuff Thread


Recommended Posts

What other options did they have, realistically? I thought they were very limited. 

Thing is, I don't think Kvyat is bad at all, he is talented enough to warrant a seat. But like you said Hughsey, if he isn't ever going to get back to red bull it's pointless. But I think if he performs well be can get back there, the Kvyat we saw at Toro Rosso in his first season was worthy of a bigger move so there's no reason he can't rekindle that.

For Kvyat, at this point it's just about getting on to the grid. For Toro Rosso, it's filling up a gap until someone like Ticktum is ready. I do wonder how Buemi would've done, but whatever, I don't really care that much now that Toro Rosso didn't had exciting options to choose from to begin with.

Wehrlein and Kvyat would be a pretty handy line up indeed. Hartley's shown he's not quite up to it, so I think Kvyat would be a better choice, although I still can't see what Toro Rosso would get out of it. Maybe they'd just use him for a year until Ticktum is ready.

He isn't? Never knew that. Oh well, never mind then, Wehrlein back in.

I do think he's somewhat average though.
Well I mean Werhlein beat Ocon by one point /s

Honestly I can't say Werhlein is worse than Ocon though as I haven't really seen one being quicker.

I've always rated Wehrlein, and I remember saying after their half season at Manor together that I felt Wehrlein was stronger than Ocon. Saying that, Ocon has clearly raised his game massively since moving to Force India, but I would love to see what Wehrlein could have done there too. I genuinely think they'd be a very close match.

I really hope this Wehrlein / Toro Rosso rumour isn't just media crap and has some substance to it, because I really think Wehrlein deserves another shot at F1.

Ocon wasn't in the Manor-team when Wehrlein scored that point though. He stepped in half way through the season in a backmarker, whilst being over 6 foot tall, which caused problems as the car was designed for the relatively short, even for F1-standards, Haryanto and he kept up and then severely outpaced Wehrlein in very difficult conditions in Brazil. That, to me, showed that Ocon is a much bigger talent than Wehrlein.

Well I mean it takes less than 10 seconds to search it up. It means sarcasm.

Takes less than 10 seconds to be an asshole too apparently. I assumed you mishit something on your keyboard or something, so I disregarded it.

Calling someone names isn't that nice. I had no intention to make you annoyed or anything.

Don't go complaining when your original comment wasn't needed in the first place...
Sorry I wanted to voice my opinion about Ocon vs Werhlein and then just wanted to tell him what /s meant. I had no intention to annoy anyone and I didn't think people would think I was trying to act like a dick.

I'm also not trying to complain. I only mentioned that calling people names isn't that nice.

Passive-aggressively belittling someone for asking a question isn't nice either. In my eyes, you did that twice and could've easily answered the follow-up question without the snarky "it takes 10 seconds to google"-comment. I feel like you shouldn't be surprised I took it the way that I took it.

But whatever, I'm sure I've done that too at times in a natural way, so if you say you didn't mean to do that, then I'll believe you, apologize for calling you an *censored* and keep it moving.
