Your Thoughts On The 2018 F1 Season So Far?

Tue Jun 12, 2018 6:56 pm

Good afternoon! I'm not sure how many F1 fans are on this website, but I would love to get your thoughts on the 2018 Formula 1 season so far. To me, the season is quite interesting, I am hoping to see Ferrari win the championship. Can't not wait for the race at Paul Ricard!

It has been a more interesting season than before, more competition. For our local champion, it has been quite a disappointing season, not in the last place because of what Max did.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Yeah its been really good, though the race at Canada was a snoozefest. Everyone said that the Halo was going to make F1 unwatchable, but it's actually fine. I hope Seb can win the championship this year. Nice to see Honda doing fairly well and I'm enjoying McLaren's woes also.

Haven't watched a single race.

Did watch a video of the Tyrrell Project 34 at Imola though. Lovely machine.

Nice Grand Prix of Austria. Max Verstappen won after a remarkable race. He begins to turn around his season.

Problem is that noone apart from Vettel, Kimi, Bottas and Hamilton can win the championship as their cars wont allow that. This is what hopefully will change after 2021.

Even if Red Bull gets a win or two they cannot still be considered serious contenders for the title.

Let's see what Silverstone brings us...some rain hopefully? :)

Austria was a great race. We need more races where a marginal one stop or a two stop strategy is required. May the tires ever blister!

Dull as dishwater, even the four times world champion is calling the current racing cars "crap".


The halo is awful, ruins most on board pictures as you can no longer see the front of the effing car.

It could well be. Stunning drive from Hamilton, who might have won even if Vettel didn't self-destruct.

Greetings Folks,
This years F1 is developing into competition between teammates.
The most obvious is between the Red Bull drivers while Force India are not too far behind.
Young Daniel ,the master of the "overtake" ( reference to the weekends race at Hungering ) is very entertaining as distinct to his teammate who takes no prisoners at times in his efforts to forge ahead.
The summer break is a well earned rest for both drivers and viewers
Let's just enjoy the balance of the season without unnecessary criticisms .
By the way the Indycars are also very competitive in the rivalry between teammates.
Cheers,325i.

It has been confirmed that Daniel Ricciardo will leave Red Bull Racing at the end of the season:
Daniel Ricciardo has advised us that he is to leave the Team at the end of the 2018 season.

Having joined the Red Bull family in 2008 as a member of the Red Bull Junior Team, with whom he won numerous junior titles, Daniel made his F1 debut in 2011 at the British Grand Prix. After two seasons with Scuderia Toro Rosso, Daniel joined us in 2014 and to date has brought the team seven victories, 29 podium finishes, two pole positions and 904 championship points.

Commenting on Daniel’s decision, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner said: “We fully respect Daniel’s decision to leave Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and we wish him all the best in his future. We would like to thank him for his dedication and the role he has played since joining the Team in 2014, the highlights of course being the seven wins and the 29 podiums he has achieved so far with us.

“We will now continue to evaluate the numerous options available to us before deciding on which driver partners Max Verstappen for the 2019 season. In the meantime, there are still nine races left in 2018 and we are fully focused on maximising every opportunity for Max and Daniel for the remainder of the season.”

Can´t help but think Ricciardo could well be the laughing third man in the fight next year.

Red Bull pushed Renault beyond the FIA´s 15 May deadline for contract renewal & when we did hear they were going to Honda we heard later on that the deal was still being negotiated with Honda. Seems to me Renault saw which way the wind was blowing & helped put Honda in the negotiating driving seat by not giving Red Bull more time beyond the deadline. I´m not that convinced that the current Honda is on par with the Renault. I could see Red Bull having a serious fight on it´s hands with the Renault powered teams next year. 3rd in the constructors championship could become an interesting fight.
I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences.
