    Shane and Vince would be proud of that level of match fixing.

    Max Verstappen is putting together the most dominant season in F1 history; since Abu Dhabi he’s been hearing the haters and living that MJ “And I took that personally” meme.

    Consider this, the single season records that he’s chasing down:
    -11 wins (Schumacher/Vettel, 13)
    -335 points (Hamilton, 413)
    -116 point margin of victory (Vettel, 155).

    Even more impressive when you remember that Max had DNFs in week 1 and 3.

    If Charles Leclerc wins out and gets every fastest lap, he will max out, pun intended, at 375 points.

    RB figured out a way to exploit the salary cap. Completely ignore your second car and driver and only develop one car. They are smart. That is how you win titles.

    Bumped, because the release of “Drive to Survive” means that a new F1 season is upon us.

    Bahrain is a week away, I can’t wait.

    RB and Max are going to run away with the season I feel.

    Definitely have to go with the dude who’s looking for the three peat…Max was absolutely dominant last season and I don’t suspect that car drops off performance-wise.

    My hope is Ferrari can minimize/eliminate the race management issues that plagued them last season; the drivers and cars are both top-quality, the team needs to be right there with Red Bull.

    The quality of the Mercedes drivers should be able to overcome most car issues, but they’ll end up a step below Red Bull/Ferrari.

    As far as the rest of the field, it’s a complete crapshoot; between the driver turnover and the teams that underperformed last year, I’m not sure who ultimately ends up competing with Mercedes. I’d say the drivers with the most to prove are Stroll and Piastri: Stroll needs to perform to prove to Daddy that he deserves a ride in 2024, Piastri for the way he is associated with a very popular driver losing his seat.

    Both Mercedes drivers are up at the end of 2023, but I can’t see Russell walking away from that team after only his second season. If you’re Lawrence Stroll and you have a chance to upgrade from your underachieving kid to a seven-time world champion, you probably back up the Brinks truck…

    The hype around the Aston Martin team seems unbelievable. I would love for another team to actually be competition up there though.

    I suspect though that Ferrari and Merc probably will still be comfortably ahead of them. Hope AM can prove me wrong. Alonso has the ability to do so. Stroll...well he's Canadian as well so he gets at least some patriotic points from me.

    Red Bull looking damn near unbeatable. Aston Martin outpacing both Ferrari and Mercedes is very intriguing. Ferrari really needs to go on a podium run, like soon, before the other two pull away.

    Imola GP cancelled due to flooding in the area, disappointing but ultimately the right move.

    It’s not even like FIA built themselves some wriggle room into the schedule in case of unforeseen circumstances such as this. Looking at the remaining 2023 dates, there is really no place to put Imola 2.0 without compounding the risk for the drivers…

    I know that part of the world well. The flooding has been really bad there.

    To re-up from last season:

    Ten races left in 2023 and The Bad Guy has 314 points, 10 wins and a 125 point lead on #2 in the Drivers.

    The records are 454 points (Max in 2022), 15 wins (Max in 2022), 155 point margin of victory (Vettel in 2013).

    That race for second in both the Drivers and Constructors will be very interesting…
