Oh dear oh dear, what a mess. Do you remember all those years ago Jenson Button sitting with his head in his hands almost in tears at Honda F1? The same team that Ross Braun turned into World Champions who were then bought out by Mercedes. I wonder what that team is doing now…..
So the question is what does Ron Dennis do now, go back to Mercedes cap in hand for his engines? no point using a Renault engine you only have to look at Red Bull. How about Mclaren – Ferrari or perhaps Ferrari – Mclaren?
Alonso and Button two former World Champions it has to be asked how many more excuses can they trot out? Honda had two years to develop this piece of rubbish, cut your losses Ron.
Montreal was a strange race, Rosberg looked very smooth and I thought he could win this, but then I looked at the Mercedes garage, no he isn’t. Hamilton was most erratic all through practice. The car was on the ragged edge perhaps he really had to push it to win, with strange radio communications over fuel. One thing Hamilton really needs to check is his pit lane speed limiter. Both tyre changes were similar plus Rosberg made an error while Hamilton was in but they were closer together when Rosberg came out.
As for Vettle well he was unlucky during qualifying with a technical problem, however during the race he was very fast and at times dangerous. We all like overtaking but forcing other drivers off the track is not acceptable. He has got away with these type of actions before, remember when Vettle T-boned Button? he carried on racing but Button had to retire. Black flag? or Spoilt child? the one thing I have noticed is that Alan Jones as a steward is something of a safety dinosaur in some cases.
It was good to see Williams back on the Podium. Clare is doing a great job there, but Frank is like the Ghost of Christmas yet to come he seems to cast a pall over the place.
Finally Montreal needs to develop, perhaps they could build an extension to the island, I thought it all looked very crowded and small. Now a-days nobody can stand still especially in sport you only go backwards.
