  • The breakout continues Bltcoin could be in the process of seeing a "volatile reset." By the start of this week's trad!ng session, moving between dips and rises is a typical neutral weekly outlook which makes it a tough decision for lInvestors to decide how best to utilise the current market; as for me it can't be more obvious that trad!ng B!tcoin is way more lucrative than just hoding and waiting for the price of B!tcoin to skyrocket. I didn't think it was possible to make constant win from trad!ng tillI came across Jorge Kennedy's program for Investors/newbies who lack understanding on how trad!ng B!tcoin works, to help them stack up more B! tcoin, since late last year till dateI have made over 19BTC from 2.6BTC with Jorge's help.

  • Whatever team finishes 3rd, will get less time in the wind tunnel for next year, I think McLaren will "try" to get 3rd this year, and maybe take it easy for 4th in the championship during the last few races. Ferrari might be thinking the same thing. Who knows

    RobboRobbo29 napja

      Gábor MiklayGábor Miklay29 napja
  • McLaren has the better drivers (even if only just) and the better management (by a lot). So with financial resources coming closer together I really can't see this as much of a rivalry going forward. McLaren will outpace Ferrari easily.

    SufferingAddictSufferingAddict29 napja
    • @Aiden Whelan leclerc has not had a worse car than Daniel for the last 3 years mate. And if you actually watched Daniel in his early years, you’d have seen he is a bit of a specialist at single Lap qualifying i.e. his toro Rosso days.

      AdrianYoungs81AdrianYoungs8125 napja
    • @AdrianYoungs81 nahhhhhh how ? Leclerc beats Daniel in qualifying like week in week out even in the worse car

      Aiden WhelanAiden Whelan26 napja
    • @Terminator_GV07 bit of an exaggeration...I would say Leclerc more times than not has a little more single lap pace, but Norris is on average better overall in race pace and not making big mistakes. Ricciardo is also on their level pace-wise but with better racecraft than both through experience. Carlos is also faster than many realize; I think he was playing it safe being the first race in Ferrari. It’s gonna be really close!

      johndough247johndough24728 napja
    • @Delirious User lol leclerc is 50 times better ...........................

      Terminator_GV07Terminator_GV0729 napja
    • @Delirious User I do think Norris > Leclerc. Norris is just as quick but crashes a lot less.

      SufferingAddictSufferingAddict29 napja
  • After last year I sure wasn't expecting Ferrari to be on the level of McLaren. So the fact we're even having this discussion is pretty amazing. They really improved a lot.

    CatbirdCatbird29 napja
    • Me neither. Pretty impressive.

      abcabc29 napja
  • Anything less than victory is a disappointment for both 🤦

    • Sure but Ferrari won the last race in 2019 and the last constructors in 2008. Mclaren won the last race in 2012 and the last constructor in 1998

  • Ferrari and Mclaren fighting for the midfield while in the past they were fighting for top honours. How two powerhouses have fallen over. Seriously if only Enzo and Bruce were alive to see this disgrace.

    The BossThe Boss29 napja
    • @Danny B I started watching F1 in the early 90's, just as McLaren hit their post-Senna slump. 1994-1996 was quite poor for them, and their title renaissance with Hakkinen turned out to be short lived. So truth be told, even though they've won lots of races over the last 20 years, they haven't been consistent title challengers for a while now.

      Jaco SchutteJaco Schutte28 napja
    • @The Boss Bruh lol. It's really either 0 or 100 with you, isn't it? Get all your motorsport knowledge from Talladega Nights? You know there's such a thing as "this is lower than we'd like to be right now but we're working our hardest to get back to the top?" There's nothing DISGRACEFUL about being slightly behind someone who's just doing it better at the moment. That's racing. You act like "If you ain't first, you're last" is actually how it is. Even in the movie he said that's a ridiculous thing to think lol. You think all the other teams out there are just a disgrace to the sport because they're not racking up those precious stats? Grow up dude.

      Box Car RacerBox Car Racer29 napja
    • @Box Car Racer it is disgraceful when you are not racking up wins, podiums even championships. But are content on staying in 4th to 10th. So you prefer being mediocre?

      The BossThe Boss29 napja
    • @The Boss It matters because you called it "disgraceful." It's not disgraceful. It's racing. I think people like Bruce and Enzo were smart enough to know that.

      Box Car RacerBox Car Racer29 napja
    • @Box Car Racer why does it matter??? Enzo and Bruce mclaren had the mentality of winners even if they did not win for a long time they wont be satisfied with it. Thats the difference. Either try to be a winner or stay a loser.
