As a relatively new fan of F1, I am finding this year far more entertaining than the last couple of years.
While Mercedes are unquestionably dominant (again), it’s been really exciting seeing the mid field and back field light up. The pink cars have found amazing pace and are fighting at the opposite end of the grid, as compared to years past. Renault is looking like they may well be the best if the rest and if it keeps going, maybe top 3?
What about Gasly’s amazing drive to 4th until safety car put him in his place, sadly.
Also, Ferarri. I feel great frustration for Seb. He’s such a talented driver who never resorts to BS and speaks thoughtfully. I find it odd how heavy the mantle of a shit car is on Vettel. Neither he nor Lecoerc can do much about their situation, but Seb, in particular, seems to be getting treated like he’s old and in the way. How quickly we forget all his accomplishments.
Anyways, this has been really interesting, so far. How do you all like it as compared to season past?
Also, if you had to pick 1 season as the most interesting/best, which would it be?
