"If we can unlock the potential of the car" - that's what Russell actually said
Good lord how clickbaity can articles get.
They know nobody's gonna read the article so they'll try to generate as much attention as possible with just the title and that's 8/10 times enough to get their article spread around.
If my aunt had balls she would be my uncle etc...
If I can unlock the potential of my legs, I can beat Usain Bolt.
I don’t think the potential of your legs is better than usain bolt’s
How do you know that?
Yeah. I heard Williams feel they can also match Red Bull and Ferrari on pace... If they make the car fast enough.
So,Albon world champion?
I'm rooting for Latifi
I see,a man of true culture you are.
I like to think so man. I have my Lavazza Late with SoyMilk.
Not if Aston match RBR and Ferrari by also unlocking the potential of the car, then its "Lance 22, Lance 23, Lance 24..."
And then Lance Stroll wakes up.
With 3 WDCs
"Multi 185 Seb, multi 185..."
I'm gonna pretend I didn't read that and just go bonkers over the headline
If we keep Red Bull and Ferrari behind, P1
This is the way.
True. But still no way they are matching Red Bull or Ferrari.
I am almost certain that title is misleading.
LOL, he did not say that
He used the word "obviously" three times. Is "obviously" Russell's version of "of course"?
Good answer 😂
Honestly, sort of
I dunno man, presumptions like that.... Dangerous.
Am I going crazy or does he never say that.
>Regarding where the team's performance might be relative to rivals Red Bull and Ferrari, he said: "I think probably on their pace. I can't see us being ahead of them.
>"Especially on Saturday, they definitely seem to have the upper hand in qualifying, I think we're the only team that closes the gap to the front on a Sunday, rather than that gap extending.
>"Normally those gaps always extend when you go to the race. And I think that shows a lot of promise for us. Because we are just lacking downforce at the moment. But there is actually a good race car there. And what I just said about closing that gap clearly shows that.
He does have a good point about how normally cars might do well in quali, but then they fall back from the leaders on Sunday, whereas Mercedes have now done this multiple times, where they get out qualified, but end up actually closing the gap on the leaders instead of falling back from them like nearly everyone else.
It's something I don't think I've seen much of before, so maybe they're right, the race pace kind of proves the car is difficult to nail down under a few quali laps, but somehow fixes itself over a full race.
How much of that is due to a safety car towards the ending stages of the race though?
Spain is the best example of this, Hamilton just blitzed through the field to finish behind Russell that day, of course they weren't faster than the front runners but they weren't far
I wonder why no one has posted or tweeted a single picture of Mercedes.
Was wondering the same
Just how big of an upgrade they're bringing? Is it gonna shave off a full second?
He litteraly said the opposite on the F1 podcasts he was just on. He expected improvements, but *NOT* To be on the level of Ferrari and redbull
Should be an easy win for George when hamilton takes out Max on lap one and both ferraris explode.
And checo in the gravel?
That's a given. Or his gearbox explodes and Sainz ends up in the gravel.
I first have to see it to believe it, however I'm definitely up for a three way
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I dont know how you made that face at the end, but it made the whole comment funny. 😋
The quickest way to do so: [https://textfac.es/](https://textfac.es/)
Honestly a 4-6 way battle for a win would be peak f1. Especially in cars that can follow closely
Aren’t we all.
Read the article
If Russell keeps all other drivers behind, he will be 1st.
You'll need a decent car for that... Ouch.
I mean if you read the article it clearly states the combination of their updates, but more specifically the nature of the circuit which they believe should suit their car (similar to Barcelona).
I expect my mom to marry Jef Bezos
I’ll believe it when I see it. Hope they have a good weekend.
Where’s my F’ing Hopium
And i hope they can only match the williams.
That doesn't make sense.
I want the merc to be slow...
Inb4 Mercs matching Williams with Albon 1s per lap faster than Max 😂😂
I think this will be their best race of the year so far but not enough to challenge Red Bull
>"If we can unlock the potential of the car"
You are only going to match and not beat?
If rb and ferrari don't bring any positive updates to the car. That's it, isn't it?
Quite long odds on a Hamilton or Russell win at the moment, could be a good £10 bet.
Really? Will be cool to see but let’s see.
im very sure he did not say that
Mercedes really is the new Red Bull/Ferrari. They were behind significantly every other race, I doubt they swing it around after one.
“If Mercedes’ have the fastest car and finish in front of Ferrari and Red Bull, well they have then beaten Ferrari and Red Bull”
-Will Buxton (probably)
Such over hype setting up the fans for a huge disappointment
