    5:00 Honesty! Although everyone knows so there's little reason to say otherwise but another driver would have articulated it differently! Maybe it's his English skills but he's not at all bad now as he used to be

    From 2018 to now i doubt there is alot of difference to get used to. The R25 is what f1 is missing. The sport has changed far too much. Tech has become too much of a focus point. F1 has never been about showcasing automotive developments and relevancy to road cars. You used to have an actual steering wheel and a gear stick, now its all buttons and dials like a video game

    These cars need to be returned back. It's bs thinking having smaller engines eco safe means it saves the world! The oil kings will not let anything become eco friendly. We all know this. FIA needs to be fired as a whole so F1 can breath again. If F1 had half a Brian they would bring back v10s and watch the fan based triple overnight!

    Alpine-Renault should bring back Hulkenberg instead of Ocon. I think he's a much better driver. Pairing with Alonso will make them a formidable force probably 3rd best after Hamilton & Bottas , Verstappen & Perez. Red Bull made that choice with Perez over Albon and they will get the dividends next season.

    15 years later this Renault 25 is still a beast. 105 kilo less weight, no DRS and a small 2 seconds slower than a 2020 car, its very impressive. And the V10 sound only, you can,t compare to the 2020 cars.
