I refuse to believe the validity of TBK's post. There must be some sort of reverse psychology thing going on?
I think Bottas has reached a point where even the most cynical and dispirited fans...

Carry the torch?

I was talking to Nitrodaze, and it was his signature I was referring to. The first two lines of my quote refer to you, the last one to Nitrodaze.
Ok, Hakkinen probably favours Bottas when he...

What, now you're not going to respond?
Just to digress a bit, re-reading Nitrodaze's posts.
I think there has to be an acknowledgement of different points of view. What you see is not...

There's merit in saying Bottas is quicker than Verstappen in isolation. But the point of this thread is to diminish Verstappen, since there's merit in saying that Verstappen is overall inherently...

That's why we're going to watch.
RB probably, but not Ferrari if the designated no1 was winning.
Otherwise, have you ever considered why he's been given contracts, when a lot of fans...

What is it that you don't like about my comparisons? They are fair stats. Verstappen has never driven a top 2 wcc car. He's mainly driven a car 3rd in the wcc. Hamilton has had two seasons in a car...

Since MB became the dominant team. At 326pts (even 323 excluding fl points), Bottas has scored the second most points for a guy 2nd in the championship.
What is the minimum you'd expect him to do?

Schumacher is just another guy for Hakkinen to beat. It's you that exaggerates Schumacher's driving to Hakkinen.
Mark, the host of the podcast -
"The incredible complexity of...

Don't forget. Rosberg would've beaten Hamilton in 2013 if it weren't for reliability, and team orders.
edit: A way to closer define the contexts of performance, you'd have to find as many...

Like I said Hakkinen's opinion> Your opinion.
For you, and many other fans, F1 is just a tv show. Whereas Hakkinen has lived through all the experiences F1 has to offer.
Hakkinen gives the...

I don't think you do.
I don't like this opinion of yours. Schumacher is this great character that is the barometer where all drivers are judged by. A heroic character like in the movies. From...

Nope, the 3 of you have demonstrated a lack of being able to decipher when he's telling as it is, and when he's milking it.
So, in a 1 hour conversation, some of you pick out one light hearted...

Bro, if you actually did listen to the podcast. You have to understand that you're disputing with someone who knows the industry of F1 intimately. He has a greater range of experience than what ever...

Hahahahaha Oh dear, how can one get such a sore arse so easily as TBK???
To boost Hamilton, Ricciardo is just a guy who's won 7 races. But to denigrate Verstappen, Ricciardo is now a good enough...

But speaking of the 2019 season, I'm linking this podcast of Mika Hakkinen's summary of the season.
26th December 2019, 04:30
Let's take a moment to take stock that in a thread about the 2019 season, TBK has posted about 2016 and given Nico Rosberg a dig.

Something Bottas had done in America that I don't think Rosberg ever done (certainly not form 2014-16). That is passing Hamilton on the track an winning.

Something unique when Hamilton does clinch the championship. It'll be the first time he's won 3 titles in a row.
It'll be good if Bottas can win and clinch 2nd. Obviously up against the super...
I'll tell you something else, the "budget restraints: are also a load of BS. It wont affect the big team that already spend over it, as they've already spent their money on their cars, and there's...

Bottas v2.0 smh.
He was probably given Hamilton settings, and Hamilton wasn't allowed to use those settings.
MB only have themselves to blame for retaining him.
He's an idiot.
3rd November 2019, 04:04
I've seen the onboard replays from Hamilton, and at no stage was alongside him so that he could see. I haven't seen the positioning of the beginning of this moment, but Vettel probably did...
The first thing two things they have to do is get rig on mandatory stop and forced use of multiple compounds. The ebb and flow of the race changes to a more natural way, and give the best opportunity...

Bottas' race affirms un my mind what he should be doing if he isn't already ahead of Hamilton in the races. Be close enough to Hamilton to take advantage of any errors he makes. This is what I was...
Now that he has a new contract for next year. I think Bottas not only has to race to get as many wins as he can (because it makes you feel good) and secure 2nd in the championship. But I think it's...
