    How much longer will last in its present form ? The failure of leadership since 2011 has lead to a nose dive for this sport who has to compete with the finite sponsorship purse world wide. It been unable to attract two further teams on the grid due to capital barriers,media contract handcuffs for sponsors who have simply walked away from teram sponsorship to other sports. Whilst the smaller teams have been unable to compete as the sponsorship monies comming in have not been ditributed uniformly. We are comming to another crunch point when the combustion engine must be replaced by other technologies to meet climate change.The sport finds itself with no chair when the music stops. The latest vacum of leadership has let radical left wing political groups start the corrosive process of exclusion of sponsors, countries, and Brands from been associated with the sport. It is unclear whether Steffio Deminicarli apealsment stile will help this decline. Already he has taken his eye off the ball for the EU legal requirement to introduced quotas for all teams of 5% of severely disabled to be employed at senior level in all teams and suppliers this year and publish in the consolidated balance sheet on how this is going to be acheived in the next twelve months. The European/UK courts could fine promoters of the sport for not complying with this primary legislative requirement which could cancel some races in the European area. The retirement of Frank Williams and Robert Kubica with semmingly no replace of severely disabled replacement candidates has put on the red light to law enforcers and lobby groups. The courts have already warned that the sport must comply with disabled inclusion or risk procecution as they have had ten years to substantially change the sport to comply with the primary legislation. It is pointed out that the blind and severely disabled are the only legally recognised in primary legislation for quotas to be imposed on F1. This is distinct from political lobby groups or lower legislative boddies. How will Steffino and press license holders comply with this primary legislation in the next twelve months after ten years of inaction and deniel?

    These pre-season tests mean nothing to the upcoming season, the whole car is set up for a variety of different reasons, fuel loads are different, engine modes are different, gear ratios, aerodynamics plus many other components are tested.. I have never once looked at the testing times as a marker for the new season, the last eight years has seen Mercedes dominant and won the championship, driver and constructors, yet in each pre-season they have not produced spectacular times in pre-season and so many F1 fans fall into the same trap that Mercedes will not dominant. Mercedes do not have to push to produce the fastest testing times, the other teams will including Red Bull and its done so Mercedes will take notice, its all tactics. Yet come the first race we might see a different car win the race this happens quite a lot, but then the likes of the Mercs change something and they go on to dominant. Pre-season testing is to iron out issues that could potentially be a problem, Mercedes are masters at doing this, yet the other teams are working on raw speed, why? again to show they can compete, but little changes will be made. I do expect a tougher challenge this season from Red Bull and possibly McLaren in third but I can't see anything stopping the Mercs and Sir Lewis from getting that 8th world title.

    always love Horner's replies - he is just to good. Great at his job and funny with the replies to questions. But then he gives a really good reply without giving technical info. For PR at Redbull, he is perfect. Lets you in to the team, has fun, but tells you only what needed. Perfect person for the job. GG

    Rascial justice, what a joke. Dont focus on who's the most talented driver. Lets focus on skin color. Does Lewis ever think about why white people are the minority race in the world but dominate racing? No hes busy in his fantasy world utopia. What he promotes is to steal rhe hard work and dedication suffering and sometimes death from the white families who've created and gave up alot to get where they are at and give it to someone with a different skin color. Hey if arabs, Africans, asians or whoever hes thinking of want to race, let them sacrifice just like we do. Noone is going to stop them. But no, Lewis wants to give them a free ride. Do you really think that will help the sport?

    Bottas is being dodgy because the facts of his place at Mercedes has been both beneficial and limiting. He came in as a Number 2 driver. The team needed a fast driver to replace nico, but considering where lewis was at both in his personal championships and what it ment for the team and their equally great Constructors achievements but also as a whole for the image of Mercedes being on top for so long dominating for now over a decade, crushing the likes of Ferrari, its all fantastic for the brand. SO that leaves Bottas up a creek, because they need Lewis success to continue on, and for Bottas to be somewhat ok with. His reward being future promises as well as being very VERY well paid. And believe me.. Bottas is being paid very well for his contribution as that number 2. But the kicker is the fact that your not in F1 to make the next guy great, or for that matter to sell yourself short of a victory. Your in F1 to win. so their is a painful rub, in that your on the best team with the best car with everything better than great except for being pleased at the very reason why your in the sport in the first place. SO i would think this season is no hold bars. Lewis has achieved that main goal of seven. to at least match Schumi and stand equal. but now its all about the icing on the cake. an 8th championship which is all about raising the bar, and personal glory. I would think Mercedes has now left all options on Bottas plate. if not Bottas will clearly be making his move for self, which he's not only earned, but has done what most drivers would never do for so long. Now... he has to see if he indeed has enough to beat lewis, or for that matter the grid with having arguably the best car and team.
