    "Its lights out..." - Formula GupShup - 2021 Season Discussion Thread

    The unofficial official Formula 1 discussion thread on GupShup.

    First order of business.

    2021 Predictions

    1. Will Mercedes sign Lewis Hamilton for 2021?
    2. Will Mercedes remain dominant in 2021? in other words, will it be another year of "GET in there Lewis..." or will be it be a year full of "Bono... my tires are gone"
    3. Will Sebastian Vettel have a good year at Aston Martin F1?
    4. Will McLaren be a competitive team this year? Considering they have the new Mercedes powertrain for 2021.
    5. Ferrari master Blan 2021? sBinalla?

    How & Why?

    Also, please don't let this thread die... like Romain Grosjean's career.

    Also, also, F1 meme's are more than welcome.

    Bonus discussion point: How much do you not want Lewis Hamilton in F1? That uncultured swine...

        Lol, I'd suggest you watch F1 drive to survive on Netflix, it will help you get a grasp on the world of F1.

        Got a lot of desi's hooked on F1 by recommending that they watch the show. Timings a bit unfortunate though, with Mercedes winning every single WCC title in the last 7 years, and Lewis Hamilton equalling Michael Schumacher's all time record of 7 drivers championship titles.

        Hopefully, 2022 will bring about some real action, as the regulations are changing, with limits being put on how much a team can spend on R&D, and drivers salaries being capped at ONLY $30m per season.

        2021 could be an interesting season as well, with slight regulations changes resulting in a ban on engine development and some of the mid field teams showing good potential towards the end of the 2020 season. Who knows, we might just see McLaren or Red Bull snag a world title this year.

        But yeah, I would highly recommend that you watch F1: Drive to Survive, even if you don't know anything about motorsports.

              That's alright, as you can see by my post count, I wasn't around for that long. I used to mod the the 'Machines & Gadgets' sub-forum with Teggy because of my "vast knowledge" on the subject.

              But yeah, 2007 to about 2010. Those were the days.

                  Is there some kind of reunion going on?
                  thanks for the suggestion I'll watch that too, hopefully.
