    Is Toto getting a cut of George's contract since he's also his agent? I'm sure there is some sort of kick back there even if it's not officially in the deal.

    Is George the literal definition of a Racing Bull?

    The best thing that could happen is they get Piastri’d

    that's a classy way of saying “fuck George”.

    They could probably do an entire Netflix series just on the Mercedes drama this offseason and what’s to come

    If the opening scene of DTS 7 isn’t just an abrupt shot of Lewis walking up and sitting down on the chair and like clapping the clapper thing then idk what we’re even doing

    this is pure PR.

    Max was never going to Mercedes.

    Lewis never prevented that.

    Toto is just fucking biter

    Lol at Max indirectly being the cause of Lewis jumping ship at Merc because they're so scared they might have his 2.0 and don't want to make the same mistake.

    That quote by Toto just cements him as Max's bitch. I don't mind Toto at all but woof at admitting that publicly.

    The biggest revelation in all of this is Merc drama is that George has sleepovers with Toto

    Max was a RB academy kid who got pushed to the top team nearly out the gate. The timeline doesn't make any sense

    This was before he even signed as an RB junior driver. I’m not saying it’s not revisionist history or sour grapes from Toto, just that this isn’t a new opinion from him


    "I spoke to Jos and Huub Rothengatter [Jos Verstappen's manager during his F1 career] when they came to my office in Brackley and that must have been when Max was in karting or the end of his karting days [in 2013] just before Formula 3 [in 2014].

    "And then we spoke again when Max and Jos visited me in my house in Vienna. We spent a few hours discussing his future.

    "Do I regret missing out on Max? Certainly. But it wasn't an option back in the day.

    "We had two drivers that I was extremely happy with, in Nico and Lewis, and when Nico left [at the end of 2016], Valtteri [Bottas] was then the option and Max wasn't even available."

    Good example as to why a team shouldn't be allowed to have a Jr team. It's a huge advantage.

    The tiny fourth wing element that was a big thing during testing has apparently been modified since so that its detached from the outer section of the wing, but it is supposed to be completely attached, or something along those lines.

    I am just loving that Williams stepped into this decade with their steering wheel, while simultaneously making it look like it likely will kill Logan in his first crash, or cut off his dick at minimum.

    Piastri's long run pace was tremendous in FP2. If he's figured out his tire deg issues, Lando can say bye bye to being the #1 driver.

    Yes, this is a premature take.
