Young Mick seems a chip off the old block in some respects. His fellow drivers have complained about dirty tactics and dangerous driving, and other teams have complained that they cant understand how his mediocre car suddenly became much faster than every other car on the track half way through the season.  ::)
His name was always going to get him into F1. Time will tell whether or not he deserves it.

I would love to see Lando Norris (I think his name is - Took Hamiltons seat when he had covid)  end up in the top 3 at least.

He surprised quite a few, Just like Lewis did in his 1st year. :y

Silly me. Was George Russell ::)  Not Lando Norris.

The evidence so far hints that the Honda power unit has quite an advantage over the Mercedes unit.
Things could be interesting this season.  :)

I know it is not possible but I would love to see the drivers (at their peak) from the sixties and seventies against the new drivers, in the same car(s)

They wouldn't stand a chance...... much the same as the 'new' drivers wouldn't stand a chance in the 60's/70's cars.

Yes, but I think that old drivers could adapt to the new technology given time, and that new drivers (if their balls are big enough) could adapt to driving on the ragged edge in something that could quite easily kill them if they crash.

Overall I think the old drivers would come out on top because they would just need to 'relearn' power, speed, acceleration, grip levels which would soon become second nature to them.

New drivers would need to overcome the fear they could very well die in a wall of fire. This is the harder thing to overcome and I'm not sure many current F1 drivers would really be up for it.

Just like learning anything....... depends on how much time you allow.

You are basically asking a Cessna 152 Pilot to captain an A320.  The basics of flying are there, but the controls are a whole different ball-game.

Well they certainly won't be able to learn it all in an hour or two.......but give the 25 year old Jim Clark a couple of months to adapt and he'd be up to speed.


Adapting (willing) to lose your life in a 1965 Lotus made of old crisp packets is much harder to learn.

I agree. Talent is talent.  :y
Although years ago Schumacher had a run in Villeneuves old Ferrari from late 70.s / early 80,s and got out saying he wouldnt push it because it was a death trap.
He was a woose though. ;D

O.388 to find for Hamilton. No time at all when you are waiting for a bus but quite a lot in F1.

Yep......it will be interesting. :y
