Well thanks for jinxing it, Charles.
Poor Chuck and his awful luck
No good luck since he was called Chuck....hmmm
Hopefully the chassis will feel good this time
No luck Chuck
it's not luck, it's Ferrari thowing
I don't get it, is an engine failure not unlucky for a driver?
It was an error from the team. We could say with that logic that anyone who didn't have the best car is unlucky.
Yes but that's not how we perceive luck as the F1 fanbase. I'm sure you're well aware that when we refer to luck we're talking about engine failures, bad strategy timing, punctures, collisions which weren't their fault, etc.
but that's not really luck. Punctures and factors like somebody else crashing into you are luck, i.e you cant control these factors neither can your team.
Engine failures sure since they can't be controlled by the driver, but they can be controlled by the team and F1 is a team sport.
By this logic Charles is very lucky that he is in a car that can contest the championship, unlike say a McLaren.
Strategy, especially Monaco wasn't luck at all. He could have made the call like Carlos.
Even if it isn't luck, that's not how we perceive it as the F1 fanbase. I'm sure you're well aware that when we refer to luck we're talking about engine failures, bad strategy timing, punctures, collisions which weren't their fault, etc.
I repeated my argument because it was clear you hadn't taken mine into account. I've acknowledged your point but have argued with it. You've just kept on saying the same thing without responding to my actual point.
I'm saying that the F1 fanbase treats luck differently to you. No matter whether it is or isn't luck, our preconceived construct of luck doesn't align with what you're saying.
And crappy pit stops, basically anything the driver has no control over.
Man said the quiet part out loud. Double DNF for Ferrari incoming.
He did exceptional last year, hope he can go one better now he has a car capable
Yeah Monaco & Baku 21 was pretty special
He’s talking about Silverstone 2021
True Leclerc was rapid on the mediums in 21 Silverstone but Lewis went ham on the hards.
And Leclerc had engine trouble
Yeah that plus the fact he was driving the best car on the grid and should have always been considerably faster than Leclerc. Leclerc was just on another level that day
And people still think hami is better than max and Charles 😭😭
Did you miss an /s?
The guy winning championship after championship was slower for a part of one race and people STILL think he is better, isn’t that scandalous.
Leclerc in 2022 reminds me of Lewis Hamilton in 2012 amazing in qualifying but having bad fortune suffering from reliability & pitwall errors.
Leclerc to Mercedes next year confirmed(in the place of another retiring 7 time world champion)
*Aw fuck yeah! Can you imagine?
Now that I think about it...I hate that your right honestly 😭
Hamilton in 2012 is the win-DNF paradox, it’s more like Max’s start to the season
Is there any gravel trap for sainz to park his ferrari?
Leclerc has been exceptional here in the last 2 years, I think he might win this
I enjoyed his 2019 drive as well as he fought with Max.
And he was running best of the rest in the Alfa in 2018 until the team fucked his pit stop. Leclerc is mighty around Silverstone.
Hulkenberg was ahead of him when he retired but it was clear on strategy and pace Leclerc would have got him.
Nope, Best we can offer is Pole position Charles.
Hope he wins man, it’s been 2 months since a Ferrari was on top
Honestly same, I’m excited for FP1 soon enough. I know redbull is going to be on our asses… I sense Mercedes might have a feather in their cap too. Need sainz to be almost perfect as well.
I'm a RB fan and of course I want for either Max or Checo to win, but what I want the most is for the races to be exciting, so, I really hope for Ferrari to get their sнiт together and bring on the fight to Red Bull.
If the car doesn't break, he's my favourite this weekend. Car suits the track and traditionally he's done very well here over the years, either in F1 or Feeder Series.
Goddamit, no more jinxing pls ISTG 😭
I forgot that Leclerc is racing this weekend - hasn't been involved in any of the drama so everyone seems to have left him alone.
keeping my fingers crossed. this is one of his better circuits so he might just pull off something special this weekend
If Ferrari keeps being Ferrari, sadly, my dear Charlie, it won't. (The Grande Strategia from the Pit Wall + the engine and hydraulics.)
Everyone please give this lovely man an internet hug, because he aint getting what he wants
Rooting for him to win this weekend.
I think almost everyone is hoping this Chuck
Championships are lost by having bad weekends, and won by how you deal with those bad weekends.
So far, Max/RB seem to deal better with having a bad one than Charles/Ferrari.
In what way could Leclerc have dealt with these bad weekends better?
Only Imola he couldve been more patient. But other than that?
Charles only really Imola and he locked up quite a bit in Baku before the retirement. Ferrari really needs to step up on the strategy side.
How was that a clean weekend? He locked up in the race..
One would think he is referring to things outside of his control since that is what has plagued him ever since Miami..
I think this can be shown by the fact he hasn't been on the podium since that race and we all know why he hadn't...
Leclerc and Ferrari need to raise up their game, because it's getting way too easy for Max.
Haha, ‘no way’
I'd say since Aussie Charles.
And they’ve touched Martin, this is fantastic!!!
Ferrari: That's gonna be a NO from us fam
