    Seppo team , Kraut driver , Gopnik money. It's quite an operation.

    Anyway fuck was I glad to see those white cars on the podium. I would have preferred a Hamilton DNF and Max win but I'll take it. Could have been far worse.

    Oh FFS, you are clearly going senile. You had to have parc fermé explained to you, and you have the audacity to mention someone's F1 knowledge when you have time and again shown your lack there of.

    Unbelievable.

    err! No I didn’t.

    Are you suggesting that your prediction for the Schumaker boy was validated by his high finish, or the breathtaking success of his American team can be overturned by a n error in predictive text?

    There’s gullible, then there’s you! lol

    Snubby remind us how high up the table Haas were going to be in a couple of years of starting?

    The Feminazis got their knickers in a knot over a joke made by Max Verstappen.

    I haven't seen it yet but per Twitter. He was asked on the fan question time , what was the most expensive thing he bought ? And he said his girlfriend I think he was just implying that she has expensive tastes.

    Why he's dating some woman who's older than him and has just popped out a gopnik sprog, I'll never know. He should have stuck with that tight fresh uni student from 2017.

    Unlike you, Max had the choice. Money is not a problem for him, he isn’t broken and bored like you? He probably didn’t lose loads on a bitcoin gamble, or dodgy jeans, so he can afford to choose how he spends all that money that you don’t have.

    How did you manage to not address one of the points of discussion in my post ?

    Point 1. His comment about buying his gf and whether it was appropriate or not
    Point 2. He's one of the foremost bachelors in the world and he's dating some woman 8 years older than him who had a child in 2019, presumably vaginal delivery.

    No shit. Huge news. The dynasty is breaking up. Luise Hamilton getting his 2022 paycheck from the House of Saud.

    Petronas to end decade-long relationship with Mercedes-AMG, Aramco set to become title sponsor

    Malaysian state-owned oil company Petronas is to conclude its title sponsorship agreement with Mercedes-AMG F1 at the end of the season, after 11 years since it joined forces with the German team.

    Decalspotters understands from sources that Petronas is departing from its association with Formula 1 and the Mercedes-AMG team as the 2022 season concludes, with Saudi oil giant Aramco set to be its replacement.
    Petronas has backed the Brackley-based team since its return as a works team in 2010, having won 7 World Contructors and Drivers’ Championships together.
    Mercedes’ success in the F1 hybrid-era is commonly attributed to the rapid evolution of Petronas lubricants and oil formulas which were developed across the years in Malaysia and at Grands Prix.
    Since its association with the German manufacturer, Petronas has become an important name in motorsport, alongside Mercedes’ projects in GT and a short-lived prospect in MotoGP.
    The Malaysian oil company has suffered massively in its finances from the COVID-19 pandemic, as it recorded multi-million loses since 2020 due to lower oil prices and demand.
    It comes as no surprise Petronas would reassess its marketing efforts in F1 and implement cost-cutting measures after a huge economic hit and the announcement of the company’s withdrawal from motorcycling racing in August.
    As such, Petronas is to be uninvolved with world-class motorsport championships for the first time since the early ’90s.

    Old friends, new chapter

    Aramco is the name of the title sponsor to-be, another state-owned company from Saudi Arabia.
    The oil giant signed as a Formula 1 Global Partner at the start of 2020 on a multi-year deal valued at more than $450 million, including naming rights to 3 Grands Prix and supporting F1’s Esports division.
    Since the announcement, F1 fans have been vocal about the sport’s involvement with Aramco, criticising the Saudi government’s human rights record and sportswashing attempts.
    Aramco sponsor boards at the Hungarian Grand Prix
    However, this isn’t the first time Aramco has been involved in talks with Mercedes-AMG, Decalspotters learned, as the company was discussing signing with the team instead of F1.
    Despite the successes on-track, Petronas higher-ups were unhappy with the team’s treatment of its title partner. Upon knowing of the talks between Mercedes-AMG and Aramco, Petronas also began negotiating with Formula 1.


    If Aramco signed with Mercedes, Petronas would become Global Partners with Formula 1, and if Aramco went with F1 then Petronas would stay with Mercedes
    At the end, the German manufacturer renewed with the Malaysian company and Saudi Aramco went to sign with the sport.
    Another factor comes in INEOS, part-owner and main sponsor of Mercedes-AMG F1, having signed a deal with Aramco and TotalEnergies in 2019, investing in the construction of three plants in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.


    The team’s partnership with Aramco is set to kickstart in 2022, with the company’s green-blue colour palette replacing Petronas’ turquoise accents on Mercedes-AMG’s branding.

    Aramco has been involved in F1 sponsorship for some time.
    Petronas lost money globally last year, with a review of sponsorships likely to bring changes anyway.

    Most teams have dodgy sponsors, including tobacco companies and oil companies. Haas is doing really well, without either. lol

    Tobacco, oil, alcohol and other less than popular outfits throw money at teams, and few are in a position to refuse.

    With a Saudi GP next year they will be keen to sportswash, or diversify their input. Not much hope for a carbon neutral sport anytime soon. Your article is based on supposition and says little that wasn’t already known, or assumed by the controlling group Liberty Media, which is a US company who lost money last season due to the pandemic.

    Money may be the root of all evil, but F1 thrives on it, even if they try and disguise it. Is this why you love Haas and Verstappen so much?

    Petronas already pulled out of MotoGP, so they're obviously trimming budgets.

    What better replacement than the richest oil company in the world?

    Checo fastest in FP2.

    Its a home race for him considering the US illegally annexed Texas from Mexico.

    This is in the sports room. It is not for you to post any of your wild political perceptions. That’s a completely different sub form jackass.

    Just put the drooling spastic on ignore. It cleans up threads nicely, and you're not missing anything.

    If I was the Red Bull boss, I'd be telling Perez to run Hamilton as agressive as possible. Hopefully try and cut one of his tires. Pile into him. Michael Schumacher won a championship doing that in 1994. And he tried it again in 1997

    No but it might be only 30 minutes of actual race broadcast with all the commercials.

    Yeah the cars stop as well, during the advertisements. Been this way for years.
