Re: F1 Thread

The Russell thing isn’t even amusing. He’s miles better than Latifi but money talks yuck. Don’t understand why Perez isn’t going for Haas. The Haas situation itself is weird. I’d think it should be Mazepin and Schwartzman but it seems it’s not really possible legally with American and Russian teams...

Couple bits from Joe Saward's blog: https://joesaward.wordpress.com/ They say that no news is good news, but I don’t always agree with that assessment.
