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==>

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.

I saw some great drives by Vettel in the Toro Rosso in 2008 (didn't he take Toro Rosso's only pole position, and win...ever?), especially in the rain! He became known for his rain skill back then, even temporarily stealing Hamilton's 2008 title from him when he passed Ham in the rain in the last couple laps at Interlagos. He went on to become the youngest pole sitter, race winner, and world champion (only one of those records has been beaten thus far, although I can foresee Leclerc beating the latter since he's gotten a Ferrari seat so early in his career). He was very close in 2009 as well, missing out by only a couple positions in the second to last race if I remember correctly, after a big drive through the field.

The fact that he hasn't been as impressive in recent years doesn't negate his achievements in my opinion.

He was labeled the “Crash Kid” in his younger years for a reason.

Vettel saw Verstappen was taking over that title and he wants it back.

While I do admit Max makes the races exciting, at times he's such a crasher. And there's 2X more times where he pulls a move that could have easily resulted in a crash where the other driver has to avoid him. Some consider that good driving I guess?

The others are growing wise to his maneuvers. His move on Vettel almost exactly mirrored last year's incident, but this time Vettel knew it was either get speared our play the slightly longer game.
