The media covering F1 is just becoming too gossipy.

It's the worst.

Of course baseball had a moment this week too, closely tracking a private flight from LA to Toronto because they thought it was Ohtani but it was actually one of the guys from Shark Tank :lol:

So F1 rejects Andretti as not being seen as a competitive team.  3/4 of the field is not competitive!!  Also turning a blind eye to the debacle that is the toro roso or visa crash app or whatever they are called being basically used by the parent team to help funding is a slap in the face.

Andretti/GM could/should have bought into an existing team as engine supplier/whatever as Ford did with Red Bull.

All he needs to do is win and he will be their hero.

How long until SportsQueenSportsBook betting takes over F1? 🤮

The most competitive part of each race will be between Lewis and Leclerc.  Might make the series worth watching.

So.... it was Red Bull Racing Director Helmut Marko who leaked the WhatsApp screenshots that incriminated Red Bull Racing CEO Christian Horner, to the other F1 Team Principles and the Media?   :mask:  There are reports that he is on the verge of being fired.


I thought the reports that Max Verstappen threatened to leave Red Bull was all BS, why would he leave the team that built arguably the best F1 car ever made,  but based on this interview if Marko gets fired he will leave.

He talks about Marko being one of the key people that made Red Bull Racing, no mention of CEO Christian Horner.

Not a healthy atmosphere at Red Bull.  Seems that Jos wants to get rid of Horner as well.  Some dirty politics happening there.  Seems that one of them will have to go.  Wouldn't mind seeing Max at Mercedes next year fighting with Louis at Ferrari.

i have gotten the strong feeling over the last year or so that max is tired of the "yea, but anyone could win in that car" comments that are tagged on to his wins/championships
