    Hindsight is the only accurate science. At the time, I thought Norris did the right thing. Don't think anyone expected that much rain. With so few laps left, I thought he'd make it. The guy behind is alway the favourite in those situations. The guy in front can't risk pitting first.
    He'd look a right ass if he pitted, Hamilton stayed out, and the conditions didn't get worse.

    If the conditions hadn't got worse he'd still have caught Hamilton.

    You're right that it's far harder in front, but the lap times had fallen so far it was almost risk free.

    Difficult decision, we had similar choices to make when our cat use to knock the car off when my kids played with scalextric, whether to put cat out or put kit away.

    Doesn't seem all that long ago I was watching Schumacher and thinking that I'd never see anyone get close in my lifetime.

    There is a good docu on Netflix about Schuey Wuey

    Back in the day it seemed like Schuey won every bleedin' race every bleedin' Championship every bleedin' year but as you can see below, when he got bored at Benetton and decided the finer challenge was to bring Ferrari back to the top, he missed out for 4 years in a row... just imagine if he had stayed at Benetton or gone to a better team!!

    Hamilton too, won it and then took FIVE years off fannying around not winning the title... what a waster. Someone will surely come along soon and blow these records out of the water.
    Someone young like Verstappen who stays on it instead of messing up for year after year after year after year, bloody losers. I can drive gud me.

    Watched the doc, was good but only covered initial Ferrari win and that only happened in final 20mins. he obviously broke the record with Ferrari, so seemed a bit silly to leave all the other wins out i thought.

    Have to say i do like the special livery Red Bull using this weekend
