Max speaks like a Dutch guy, definitely not Flemish. Most importantly: he feels Dutch, not Belgian

So let's end this silly argument - he Dutch
1- Where are you born ? And what is your nationality ?
2- How many ( % ) of taxes do you pay on your yearly income in the Netherlands ?

The only Dutch thing about Max is his F1 driver license , that's what Sophie Kumpen said ( Max mom )
And that's not silly , but financial speculation . And personal (if I had the chance) I would do the same

I can picture Daniel “doing a Prost” and getting into shit about the lack of development of the POS car.
I know it seems insane but I can see Hungary, Monaco and Singapore being good chances if they can manage their downforce levels and mechanical grip. It's not too far fetched...

Indeed, you are insane!

Cyril is looking for a new PR guy

As much as I would love for him to place in any race, just can't see it happening this year. They're more likely to explode than win a race.

I think this year will be more of a development race than anything. Mercedes won the first race, Ferrari comes back and grabs the second race, Mercedes dominates the third race.

For Baku I see either Leclerc again dominating, or Vettel finally getting to the front. Either that or Max takes the win. Of course last year Perez was on the podium for Force India in 3rd, Sainz in the Renault in 5th and Leclerc in the Sauber in 6th with 7 drivers with a DNF, so really anything can happen.

Fear-rari - 3 races, 3 team order interferences.
Mercedes - 3 races, 3 One-Two finishes.

Get it together Ferrari. This is embarrassing.
sadly MK, this meme from late last season turns out to have been prophetic==>

do you mean "Vettel may stay at home next year..."?? There's already a few journalists saying he might retire. Quit while his reputation is not completely ruined.

He won his championships by being in the fastest car and leading from the front. It's different now. It's become clear that he's not the guy who can take a team to that next level. He still can put down a hot lap second to none (well maybe one). But his skills in traffic were never exemplary, and now he's in traffic more and the mistakes are piling up.

Yet another baseless analysis. You're certainly entitled to have those opinions, but none of those are facts. He took Red Bull to the "next level", from not WC to WC. His skills in traffic were exercised much more often at BMW Sauber and Torro Rosso, than HAM at his teams. His "mistakes" are his desperate attempts to get ahead of a faster car, before it drives off into the sunset.
