re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread
Mazepin has long been rumored to buy the team from Haas. Makes sense I guess.

Not sure who takes a risk on Rich Energy again.

That’s a beautiful looking car.

I'm expecting it to be Haas in 10th and make Williams look like rockstars. It doesn't sound like much optimism from Haas recently. Sounds like they're pretty much fielding their 2020 car with 2 rookie drivers. I'm expecting these first few races for Haas to be brutal.

The new Manor Marussia.

I see that Kvyat is now the reserve driver for Alpine.

Not sure all of this can be traced back to Paddy Lowe, but that is a story that I wish would get told one day. Something was never right with that.


What did really happen with him? I never looked in to it too much. It was all hush-hush, and I'm assuming that was for a reason.

I think Williams scores points this year and I think they score them in multiple races. It might only be for P10, but dammit, they're going to score points.

Just saw that Alpine. That's a good looking car. The best yet.

Allegedly Lowe made some bad decisions on design and Williams was poorly run leading to whatever happening. Lowe has never returned and Claire had to sell the team. Maybe both screwed up enough to take the blame.

My memory is that the car showed up with a blatantly illegal setup during testing that had to be modified, but that means either Paddy screwed up or that is what was needed to make the car halfway driveable.

Heads needed to roll if you don't show up with a working car for testing.

It is sad that the Williams family sold the team

Those Drive to Survive Williams episodes were brutal.

Tasty. I think I might like that even better than the Alpine. Absolutely love the color. I'm not sure I'd call it British Racing Green but it's gorgeous.

I like the touch with the pink(ish) stripe as a nod to Force India/Racing Point

That's the one thing I was kinda meh about

Would have loved to see it yellow like the classic livery, but I think it still looks pretty damn good

Haas went full Russia. The livery looks good but the red/blue/white arrangement is a bummer instead of being red, white, and blue.

frickin Mazepin

Was honestly hoping HAAS would continue their alternating of black and white liverys... but now Mazepin turned it into Russian dog shit

Guess that's what happens when your main sponsor is a-hole's daddy

Eta: for those that dont know, Uralkali is owned by Uralchem (Dmitry Mazepin is the owner)

I do like it - but it’s clear who owns the team
