Heartbroken at Leclerc's misfortune, but I am hopeful for the future of Ferrari. Now please, can any of these top 5 teams don't choke on China?

the same can be said about williams, mclaren and mercedes
especially mercedes, considering they obtained theirs via malicious regulation lobbying :0
also I don't see why winning in the past and having a 12 year drought needs you mean to suffer

blankkgeorgebaiiOnly thing i'm hoping for this season is that Kubica gets some good results for his comeback.Good result in general or for a Williams? At the moment if I was him my main concern would be making the 107% rule every race lol.

Pray for rain

Think it completely depends on what aspect of motor racing you like, personally I think F1 became boring when all the cars became identical, any new ingenuity got banned instantly, and teams too scared to waste money exploiting design loopholes. But that's probably because I'm more interested in the cars themselves than the drivers and drama. Still entertaining to watch the highlights of modern F1 though.

My biggest problem with Modern Formula 1 is the advancements in Tyre technology. It has completely changed the way the sport works and not for the better. It's similar to how the advancements in both golf ball and swimming suit technology can and do make the sport more boring.

Another problem with F1 is that it's not about pure skill and it is not a race about the drivers but rather it is a team sport. We have seen 1 mistake in the pitstop cost the driver his victory and vice-versa. Basically the team with the most money to spend on drivers, mechanics and research will always win and long gone are the days of outside companies making it because you just cannot beat Mercedes or Ferrari when they have so much more money to invest in the cars.

I still love watching F1 but there is no denying that the sport was at its very best in the 70s-late 90s where it was just far more dangerous and exiting, as well as being more about skill and innovation rather than whoever had the most expensive tyres, mechanics and sponsors. On the lower end of the grid, some of the drivers there have literally been bought by their billionare dads so that they could race in F1 *cough* Williams *cough*

No you're both right, that was also Williams.
Before moving to Force India (now Racing Point), Lance Stroll drove for Williams which then was funded by his father Lawrence Stroll. Lawrence then later took over Force India where Lance is now driving.

yeah I know but sheepy said 'bought'
he was more of a paydriver at williams, his dad funded it but held no shares in the team

The point was that the dude was only driving for williams because he had a rich dad who funded the company and they couldn't get a better driver because of this.

yeah
it's really unfortunate for a team with a history like Williams' to end up like this but in a way I'm not surprised. They've been in a shitty downward spiral since 2006 and only delayed their demise in 2014-2016 by having Mercedes engines. I hope things can look up for them soon.
