As it would be nice to think that Red Bull can
finally Stop the Silver Arrows Smothering Dominance, since All (Streaks)
Dynastys must end…

Having won every Stinkin’ Drivers and
Constructors Championships since the Power Unit (PU) era began in 2014, will
this be another Ho Hum season? As Im simply getting extremely Bored by the
Golden Child, Err, Uhm Sir Lewis Show, YAWN!
W12 chassis is simply an evolution of last year’s All conquering Silver
Arrows W11 challenger which racked up 13 of 17 wins! So even if the W12 has
appeared to be quite skittish in the Uber brief three day test outing and
languished Mid-pack on the Time Sheets. While Lewis Hamilton never got
comfortable with the car, along with the unexpected Gearbox problem on Day-1,
you’d have to Arse-sume’ Mercedes will iron these issue out toot-sweet, righto?
And the driver pairing remains intact a further
season, since I’ve since long Cooled upon Valtteri Bottas, who is definitely a
Number Two Driver and will Never Beat sir Lewis for the title! And even though
I know it was only a single race,but after George Russell’s magnanimous
Debutante Merc’ outing at Bahrain, are Bottas’s days numbered?

Not sure why, but I cannot seem to find
anything definitive ‘bout the new RB16B on Ye Intrawoods’ which seems really
Cornfusing. As I’ll simply Arse-sume’ that it like all the others is an
evolution of last year’s F1 Challenger. As the RB16 can’t be calld a bad car since
it won two races, both in the hands of Maximus Hothead’, aka Max Verstappen,
including the season finale at Abu Dhabi on December 13, 2020.
I did read that Honda brought Thar planned for
2022 engine upgrade as this year’s Power Unit since we All know that Honda’s
leaving Formula 1 at seasons end, when the newly established Red Bull
Powertrains unit will take over next year managing the Frozen” Honder’ lump
thru the end of it’s lifecycle, i.e.; 2025.
Presumably chassis Genius Adrian Newey’s
managed to slough off the RB16’s low points and make this year’s car more well
rounded to Max’s liking, which means new Red Bull recruit Sergio Perez will
have his work cut out for him.
But this duo’s currently chosen as my second
best Driver tandem on the grid, having after all finished P3-4 in the Drivers
standings, and Checko’s never a slouch when it comes to finishing a race, so
Red Bull could potentially Harass Mercedes for the vaunted Constructors Cup
this year, whilst Verstappen will be chomping to knock Sir Lewis Off of his lofty
As I just hope that this year’s “Winter Olympics,” nee F1 Testing won’t Fool us all since Red bull led most of the three days Time sheet results with Verstappen going Quickest Overall on the last day and making everyone think Red bull’s looking incredibly strong out of the gate…
