Somebody's got to take Hamilton down. I would hate to see him retire as the F1 champ.

He may not. But he sure will retire as the GOAT. And mad Max sure aint gonna get that title!

Would be good to see rising star Tsunoda promoted to the senior Red Bull team soon, and give Max a run for his money.

I agree with @ Fighto! Hamilton is the GOAT. There's no denying that in my mind.

Maybe more practice less social justice warrioring.

GOAT ?... Short memories?

Senna?

I guess Senna’a ‘Social Warrioring’ foundation that helps millions of poor Brazilian kids doesn’t count, since he isn’t black

Senna's foundation does some actual good. Hamilton's kneeling, not so much.

This just shows how clueless fanboys can be. I don't know if Max is going to be a "goat", I hope not, F1 has been so boring for the last 7 years with Lulu and his unbeatable machine, and the help of his Finnish lackey. Ferrari and McLaren are on their way back and Lulu finally getting some opposition within his own team from next season, things are looking excellent. I really don't care who becomes champion, mad max or Lulu, either deserves it this year, but let it be a battle till the end.

LOL.

And the jokes keep coming!

What about his Mission 44 foundation? Still too wokey / virtue signally / media elitey etc for your charming brand of politics?

The start was pretty much a foregone conclusion as Max had the well-known and long-discussed benefit of drag up to the first corner. No real surprise there.

On balance the Red Bull do look good. Behind the scenes of course Lady Luck and The Fates will be weaving their magic spells.

Mission 44? Not sure if its a tax dodge or a PR stunt, or both?

Fair point, I think it might be both. Money and petrol to burn in abundance.

Hamilton, for all his virtue signaling, getting Merceds to change the team colors to black in support of BLM, coercing other drivers to take the knee, etc, has not a single black person on his team. Not one.

So true.
