I hope Ferrari go better at Montreal and the Ferrari things are less for Chas and Carlos, I read Mekies is starting to get ready to leave before long for Alpha Tauri.

A lot of news going on whether tots' employee will sign up again, there are so many up coming drivers with superb skills who could partner the Russell boy for a fraction of the price, the long delay to possible re-signing shows the greediness and fat cat money grasping that's going on behind the scenes.

"Max Verstappen: Red Bull driver hopes 'animal' Fernando Alonso can win Formula 1 race in 2023"
https://www.skysports.com/f1/news/12...1-race-in-2023

"Verstappen has always talked positively about the Spaniard, previously stating he should have more triumphs in the sport.
« I like him. He's a real racer and I think he deserves it [to win]. He never gives up and you can see he loves the sport, » said Verstappen.
« Sometimes I think 'after so many years of having a car which is only capable of driving in midfield maybe you lose a bit of that love'. But he's a real racer, he's an animal. So if you ask me, one driver who I would like to see win a race this year it would be Fernando. »"

It's nice of Max to say something positive about FA winning a race

Yeah . Fernando's Aston got a new floor and new sidepods in Canada .

Won't be enough to beat MAX's scalpel driver skills , but hopefully It's just enough to drive the Merc's 'off(!) the podium .

BTW : Checo ran in Spain with a copy&paste from MAX's RB19 setup.
And the lastest rumour is that Charlie will move to Alpine in 2024...

I read that about Chas and Alpine earlier and his F23 has no upgrades for this race so it's not looking good for the reds, unless Carlos can pull something out of the bag.

Red Bull
Mercedes
Aston

I honestly think all the managers, from 2007 have had their hands tied since Monty left and in the way the F23 is being developed now, some say that and the Merc needs new chassis and to start from square 1 again as it's like flogging a half alive horse to go faster with the present set ups improving a bit but then coming to a dead end.

Technical difficulties....

currently the most interesting footage is of a marmot chewing on some grass or so....

I see the clock is ticking for FP1 when it should be stopped? The cameras malfunction and a low loader on the track should mean stop surely.

Sure . But actually Ferrari Isn't coming from the top ..

In the last 4 years , Charlie only won 3 races and 2 with the Ferrari cheating 'Strawberry PU .
That's only 5 Ferrari victories in the last 4 years .
MAX wins what ? Like 5 victories in 10/11 weeks ...
That's 4 years vs 10 weeks !

Honestly I would love to see Charlie in the front to fight with the Merc's for the podium .
That would be awesome . But also ALO vs LEW !

LEW : That's some dangerous driving man !

Kees said today : Mercedes can win this race !

1• The Russel boy torpedoes MAX
2• LEW takes the victory
