I do enjoy watching VER chase history like this - but would like to see '23 to play out as a full competitive season. Maybe Ferarri stop doing Ferrari like things and Mercedes start doing Mercedes like things.

Yeah, I'd love to see Max close out the most dominant season of all time and then some real competitive seasons in the future.

The old days of maintaining track position are over - multiple times Merc has made the decision to maintain, then get passed by cars on fresher tires

smarten up already - adapt

Also their clumsy body/aero system shines only on a few tracks and the fitter Russell than the older Hamilton wrestles the silver eye sore 13 to a podium.

I'm not confident that he'll beat or match Seb's 9 consecutive wins. If he wins in Singapore then I'll be much more confident in this one.

I think the highest likeliness is that he breaks Schumacher's/Seb's 13 wins. He only needs 3 more for this so he may break it by more than 1 race. There's 6 races left and I think we may see a 15 or 16 win season here.
I think the 9 wins in a row is not important than matching the 13 in a season and if attainable another win for Checo should be given for his support and loyalty.

Their car is so sensitive to everything.

Wind speed, wind heading, fuel load, etc.

All the cars are sensitive to that but for some reason Merc is affected worse than anyone. 2 kg of fuel gets used and it turns into a rocket. Another 2 kg gets used and it turns into a boat again. Someone in the grandstands farts and the car has no grip.

I don't see that happening. Checo seems to be falling off pace.

Would be fantastic if Checo wins in Mexico. Mexican fans are next level.

Would be awesome to see Checo get another win but he just hasn't been able to progress with the evolution of the car like Max has. Cannot see him being able to outpace Max on any given weekend at this point in a car set up tending to oversteer. Excellent driver but just doesn't have that level of skill in him -fastest with a bit of bias towards understeer and that has been worked out of the car.

No wonder SF sucks this year. They were busy making the most beautiful SUV I've ever seen. Completely destroys the Cullinan, Urus, Bentayga.

Maybe not through race skill compared with Max but could be 'given' to him if the gap is safe to the chasing pack.

I was thinking of this race in particular for a Sergio win where he came third last year.

Not an SUV fan of any kind but that one is a beauty, makes the Maserati look like a prehistoric fish.

Some cars were lapped even twice !

The W11 had also more inventions , actually advantages like wheel cooling in the rim , the Party-Mode , DAS ,ect ..
We've seen also a Mercedes with a Rocket Grenade PU , at least that's what Wolff said .

I haven't seen that from the RB18 yet ...

Sure . There's a big chance that MAX can do it ...

On the other hand :
If the opportunity arises , Checo will get a win from MAX .
Because MAX hasn't forgotten yet , what Checo did for him at Abu Dhabi 2021 .
