    Leclerc to Ferrari and Kimi to Sauber (on a 2 year deal; rumour has it he will be part-owner of Sauber after 2019).
    I was really hoping Kimi would stay with Ferrari for another year :(

    Crazy!  I wonder how much of Kimi's contract is being paid by Ferrari. I'd guess the ownership rumors are true because I cant see Kimi agreeing to drive for Sauber without big dollars.

    I think you nailed it, and I was thinking the same thing about Ferrari still paying him to go to Sauber.
    I'm torn about the move.  Leclerc shows a lot of promise and is likely going to be a star, but I love Kimi and don't want him gone from F1, yet don't want to see him fighting the Toro Rossos for 8th every race.

    Kimi is not helping Seb win the title.  LeClerc will be a better second driver for Seb. I would love to see Kimi win a race in a Sauber.

    Well he isn't anymore, no, haha!  Vettel is making too many errors, I'm losing faith and regaining my learned pessimism.
    I would also like to see him win a race, as unlikely as it seems.

    Heading back to Austin next month.  Four years in a row doing both Montreal and Austin.  May have to mix it up next year.

    Maybe but still nothing wrong with those two venues!
    What races top your list?

    Another exciting competitive F1 race in Russia!  I guess that is the deal you sign with the devil when you get the Mario Kart with all the super power-ups equipped.

    I thought the race was entertaining.  Max had a heck of a drive and the tire and pit strategies made it worth watching. Title hunt not over yet.  If Ferrari can put something together for Japan the end of the season could get interesting.

    I've pretty much thrown in the towel on this season.  Hambone is driving too well and his machinery has been bulletproof and Vettel has squandered too many of the chances he's had.

    Congratulations to Kimi, so happy for him!
    most likely his last victory in F1

  • Vettel  continues to drive with immaturity .
    He has thrown away a very good chance this season because that Ferrari has been his best car for a while this season. 
    But panic at the vital moment has seen him blow it. 
    Hamilton must be well happy to have it in the bag because at the half way stage it was so close.
     Everyone loves Kimi and there is a big fuck off to the boss of Ferrari.  
    Max is so good to watch. Drives like we all would want to.

    Great race by Kimi!
  • Get_RightGet_Right Posts: 11,280
    Was at the race.  Looked like another Hamilton run away.  Great race.  Suspect that Hamilton could not go the distance on the same tires as Kimi with fewer laps on them. I think a Dubai prince paid off Mercedes and Ferrari to have the title won in Abu Dabi.

    Kimi = Best Finnish driver of all time (21 wins)

    Mercedes changed their rims back for the race as well, fearing a post-race protest by Ferrari.  They had implemented a rim with holes in it which allows better temperature control for the tires, and Ferrari asked the FIA to look into it (which they did, and gave the green light to) as Red Bull implemented something similar a few years ago (2015?) which were banned.
    The previous spec rims probably didn't help their tire management in the race.
  • Get_RightGet_Right Posts: 11,280
    Meh.  Ive seen Hambone go 49 laps on softs.  In any event super exciting to see Kimi win.  The crowd was nuts. 70% Ferrari fans.
  • RygarRygar Posts: 8,629
    I think Vettel also said they reverted to a previous spec car, i.e. they removed a bunch of updates that weren't working.
    Everyone loves Kimi, I hope he wins the remaining races!
  • Get_RightGet_Right Posts: 11,280
    Already booked my place for Austin next year.  What a fun time! We shall see if Montreal is in the cards.
    Looking forward to see how the last three races play out.

    Man the mercs have been so slow the last two races. Destroying tires like gummy bears. Is there a chance that Ferrari could win the constructors championship?  Will the mercs now show up and dominate the next two races now that the drivers championship is decided?  At least there is a reason to watch.  That Mexico track is strange. Rant over.

    If anyone plays the F1 game on PS4, F1 2018 is on sale for $30 on the playstation network.  I played a little last night and can happily confirm that the understeer issue present in the 2017 game is gone.  I was able to beat my best lap 2017 time in Australia within 10 laps with making zero changes to the car setup.  In 2017, it seemed almost impossible to get through turn 15 without running off the track within five laps, even with making aggressive down-force mods in the car setup.

    The game is much easier using a PS4 gamepad as well.  I've yet to use my wheel yet.
