I switched the channel every time Putin was shown during the broadcast lol. Great race though. Was wondering how long until the conspiracies came out!

I don't really believe in a conspiracy....... yet...

Very strange though the amount of shite coming LH's way... and maybe the oddest of them all is why did Mercedes this year change all of Lewis's mechanics for all of Nico's...??

I am surprised Putin doesn't race... naked from the waist up of course..

Formula Farce continues.

I actually predicted on the German F1 forum that Lewis' car would not make it through qualifying in Russia either. I was right.

After seeing Lewis take the first two poles of the season, the incidents of the last races virtually guarantee Rosberg's WDC this year (huge points gap, more penalties coming for Lewis etc.)

8 Merc engines. Only Lewis affected. "Freak failures", they say.

Nico Rosberg has praised moves by his Mercedes Formula 1 team to swap mechanics between his and team-mate Lewis Hamilton's cars for this season.

Unfortunately for F1, there will be no championship battle this season.

Engine penalties kick in when the sixth component of one of six items - internal combustion engine, turbocharger, MGU-H, MGU-K, control electronics and energy store - is used.

Hamilton is already up to his third turbocharger and MGU-H with 17 races remaining.

"I'm running out of engines so that's on my mind," he said.

What a fucking joke.

8 engines, 20 dynos, running with bulletproof reliability. Except for Hamilton's. When problems occur on any engine, issues are found quickly and rectified. Except for Hamilton's. He's the one and only exception in the Mercedes universe.

Maybe his driving style breaks engines?

Kvyat's kindergarten driving has earned him a demotion to Toro Rosso. Verstappen and Ricciardo should be fun. Now I have a reason to root for Ricciardo!

I wasn't even aware that such a driver switch would be possible at this point in the season, but apparently the contracts allow it. Will Verstappen's points at Red Bull simply be added to his Toro Rosso points?

I believe drivers keep their own points, and teams keep points drivers made them while driving in their team. Simple.

Mercedes has admitted it is still working on fixing the engine problems that have thwarted Lewis Hamilton’s championship campaign so far in 2016.

In China and again in Russia, the reigning triple world champion struck trouble with identical problems aboard two different V6 ’power units’.

Then in the Sochi race, the Briton was lucky to see the chequered flag due to a water leak, which boss Toto Wolff says was caused by a "cracked carbon pipe".

"We are trying to analyse and find the root cause for the problems and it’s not evident," Wolff admitted this week.

Rolling Eyes

Not evident, he says.

So how does this work?

Marko believes Red Bull could win races and championships again if it had a three tenths deficit on the engine side because it has such a strong aerodynamic record.

http://www.espn.co.uk/f1/story/_/id/15474772/helmut-marko-red-bull-biggest-beneficiary-new-rules

So what if they measure (I believe Barcelona is the measuring stick) the gap, and it's a whole lot more than 3 tenths? What happens then?

I think it totally unfair to Mercedes and anyone else for that matter that produces an
engine better than anyone else....  Would Marko be happy to give up some of his
aerodynamic or chassis advantages??

I also do not believe there was anything wrong with Nico's car.... just Mercedes trying (but failing) to
look balanced...
