A few team logos I had to go and refresh my memory on. It really is amazing how the F1 landscape has changed in the short span of 20 years.
If Ferrari can come out of the gate in '22 with a design that isn't a flying brick, they'll be in a very good position. LeClerc/Sainz is a talented 1-2 lineup.
Yeah Boathouse hasn't impressed me at all this season. I know even the dominant cars can suit one teammate over the other, but I'm surprised he can't get more out of the car considering #Blessed's post penalty charge in Monza. I don't remember where I saw it, but someone posed the question who's having a worse season boathouse or Ferrari?
McLaren (Scoring 218 driver points vs Ferrari’s 204) should have won the WCC… but… McLaren lost their constructor’s points for Hungary because ALO held up HAM in the pit during Quali in retaliation for HAM not allowing ALO by on track earlier in the session. ALO got a grid penalty, and the FIA penalized the team and took all their points away.
The loss of those Hungary points would have put McLaren in 2nd place in the WCC, but it really didn’t matter since they were disqualified for the whole Stephneygate thing.
What a mess that was. ALO knew about the espionage, and threatened to go to the FIA if he wasn’t made the #1 driver (or something like that).
2022 is going to be wild. I hope Hamilton and Bottas are still with Mercedes and Williams improves enough where Russell isn’t fighting to get out of there at the very first opportunity. I want them to succeed, and I doubt they get another driver as good as him anytime soon, even with a better car. I’d hate for Russell to end up at Alpine or Red Bull, and I’m guessing Wolff would too.*
*unless there are some kind of junior program rules that prevent it. I don’t know enough about that.
Had he won, he'd be sitting on 8 trophies. Crazy how close many of those seasons were.
