  • I feel in the end the mercrs will find the answers not only that i just freel Lewis with his experience and racing know how will just edge it. But i also feel after this season lewis will retire. And max is the future. We are all so lucky that we have all these amazing talented drivers in this era. But max is the new era and in my mind Lewis will find the way to win the championship this season 😊😊😊

  • Guess focus on next year and not doing any development on the same year toward the end made Mercedes relax and perhaps a bit afraid to try new things. Though it did made last year more stable and the car flying with accustomed drivers.

  • We don't know what the difference in raw pace is yet. I meen it's not like this is the first time that mercedes has been pushed in the opening race. In 2018 Vettel was leading the championship after the summer break so this isn't really that unusual. But still great tho!

    CobratrapsCobratraps7 napja
  • Mercedes isn't that far behind. They were better on Mediums in race pace. Yes they are overall probably slightly worse but it's not as if Red Bull is far ahead. Not to mention, who knows what Merc will bring to Imola.

  • My prediction- Lewis & Max fighting wire to wire but at the end Lewis will bag his 8th/9th title and retired. For 2021/2022, Alonso & Hulkerberg/Russell will step to Mercedes while Max Verstappen stay at RedBull bcause has no escape clause bcause RedBull still have the fastest car.. mercedes win by strategy..

    ArifSynerGreenArifSynerGreen8 napja
  • It's going to be close, but I think Mercedes will probably edge it out by the end: with strategy, the drivers delivering their best and hopefully reliability as well. They have managed to do it before, and I think they could do it again! (That is unless RB come up with a big clear advantage and carry it through the entire season, in which case I see Mercedes potentially drop 2021 development, sacrifice their 2021 title to RB and focus on 2022 instead.)

  • Uuhhhh , not siding for Max but Lewis got overtaken by max even when cheating 29 times ad corner 4 and only won because of the race director being selective in the regulations. This was absolutely ridiculous and ruined the race for us fans.

  • My money is on *Red Bull.* The new regulations highly favor Red Bull and they're the kings of development. Merc was lucky *Perez* started from the pit lane otherwise they wouldn't have been able to *undercut* Max during the pit stop window. Red Bull just need to make sure Checo's car has no more issues going into the race.

    • yeah! Mercedes so strong at a race strategy, but we know that they're had many times failed pit stop strategy as like as other teams. Just, I mean Mercedes makes 2-4 mistakes every season! Look at 2020, 2019! Russia GP - start testing for LH44; Silverstone- Hams 3 wheels finish and Bottas fail! Germany GP - crazy rain race and 1 minute pit stop for LH44; Bahrain -Russel and Bottas failed at PC pitstop ; and others. I think RB have more chances for win 2021 right now!

    • They don’t. They just have the luxury of two cars being #1 and #2, usually. When your cars are in a position next to eachother, there’s more options than otherwise. Other teams have equally smart people that do their strategy.

      Joe FelonyJoe Felony8 napja
    • Best second driver - merc (Beta Bottas is still the best beta) Best car - probably RB but not much and nothing the Merc engineers can't catch up. Best Race and Tech Engineer - Merc (base on previous season) Best Pit Crew - RB (Merc sometimes fumbled up and ruin their race) Best Driver - I would still say Lewis, his experience and his shameless ability to exploit loopholes are still beyond' Max's reach.

      Gel MirGel Mir8 napja
  • We’ve said on our podcast that it’ll be decided by Bottas and Perez. Lewis and Max will both be neck and neck and therefore it’ll be dependant on the 2nd drivers and because of this I can see Red Bull winning.

    Sports TorqueSports Torque8 napja
    • This is exactly why Mercedes has the upper hand. It will take a long time for Perez to get to his full potential in the RB car.
