I mean realistically you aren't. That Ferrari looking pretty trash rn.

Which is going to make it that more interesting when Lewis gets ahold of it. Right now it appears to me ferrari are favoring the wrong driver. Development could be limited by this. When Lewis shows up, there can be no mistake as to who to listen to and develop the car around. You wouldn't sign Schumacher or Lauda and setup/develop the car around their teammate obviously. Hamilton is lesser credited for developing cars, but if you look at his track record, he stacks up.

Can’t wrap my head around why Red Bull re-signed Perez still…
as we joke in the latin comunity,

he has the "most caps sold" championship, the "most babies made" championship, and the FP1 championship. The first one is particulary relevant to Red Bull

He hasn't had the FP1 championship lead in a long time

Might be if I was tifosi. In the absence of that, it's just simple analysis, unless you think Ferarri is making the right choice keeping the underperforming and historically erratic Leclerc over Sainz
Ferrari's cars are a crapshoot and adding LH, regardless of who he replaces, isn't going to fix the problems with the team

I am so happy for Lewis even though I am far, really far, of being one of his fans, but he fought for the victory and he earned it fairly.

So sad for Russell, Piastri and Norris. Yeah, McLaren has the car right now, and definitely Norris is capable of winning with the best car BUT with those strategic mistakes...
Rossuell woulf have fought Hamilton for the victory and that would have been lovely in the British GP but, sadly, as soon as the track was dry (and Verstappen chose the right tyres) the win was just a matter of time... Luckily the race was not long enough.

Happy to see some fight finally. Maybe the FIA should delay the 2026 rules since they are actually succeeding in the goal of the actual rulebook: balancing the teams and having at least 3 teams fighting for victory.

My favorite racer is actually Raikkonen in any series. And before someone else wants to jump on the half fucking Mexican guy for being racist, it's because he's not a pretentious fuckwit. And he actually won a championship for Ferrari.

You could be right be there, but if there is any driver that might help lessen that crapshoot nature at this point, even if only because they will want to listen to his feedback more than others, it's Lewis. Also, if I was blind and only went by my ears I'd say he's an italian!

Personally, I think he WILL help them regain the consistency they saw during vettel's best years, minus the sanctions
