I just want to make clear (bc my posts of today suggest otherwise) that i do support Lewis as a person and for his beliefs. I also quite like him as a driver. However, i do not support Mercedes. Not because i hate them, but because that’s how sports and being a fan of a team works. I happen to be a fan of Ferrari. Some people don’t seem to get that you don’t have to love everyone and every team on the grid.
Just wanted to put that out there.
Oh my fucking god. I´m really shocked to read that mercedes has now money problems, after the crash between Russell and Bottas. Because this year the teams only can use 145 million dollars for upgrading their cars and most money is now “wasted” on the damaged car of Bottas.
This means less performance on the car...
Now, I understand why Wolff is so angry about Russell!

I am a George Russell fan and I understand it was the “heat of the moment” and they “crashed at extremely high speeds” but going over to someone who is in a shaken state probably (with their car on fire btw) to yell at them is just not a good look, ESPECIALLY when you’re the GPDA director.
And then, even after adrenaline subsides, you double down on your opinions, insinuating that Bottas made this move bc of their merc seat beef, and may not have made that move otherwise if it had been another driver (which doesn’t make sense?? I’m sure Bottas would have made that move regardless to avoid losing positions because he’s in a frickin Merc, shouldn’t be in p9, and doesn’t want to lose out on the WDC rankings??)
And that’s not to forget his relationship with Toto - I mean Toto basically called BS on George’s statements today and practically called him an idiot.
My favourite thing from this race (aside from the obvious) was that Bottas was lapped in a Mercedes.

When I said that the reason Netflix left out George in Sahkir is because they were saving that for season 4 to start off the “who gets the Mercedes seat” drama I was so right lol.
ideologically i don’t agree with bottas but he kinda went off with i lost my aluminium foil hat somewhere /j
