    This might sound crazy, but I dont care. My step father and his father were friends with a billionare friend of Ross Brawn, they used to go fishing in the river my step father owns. I talked about f1 and casually brought up Ross Brawns crazy win, and he went on to say he used to drink wine and beer on our porch with him. I didnt believe him of course, but when he showed me actual photos of him with Brawn and some billionare friends of them, it blew my mind. I've been trying to get in touch with Brawn since I learned this, but I have no idea of how to actually do so. I can say that this was in Norway, but I wont show photos. Brawn and his friends asked them not to show the photos during that time, since it would end up in every single newspaper in Norway. If anyone have any idea of how to actually get in touch with Brawn, please let me know. They would meet every year for atleast 6 years, but its been around 5 years since last time. The friend of Brawn built a replica of a f1 circuit on his land at some french villa. I didnt get his name, perhaps some of you might be able to. He also owns 4 or 5 of schumis championship f1 cars.

    High positices are due to high testing. The tests lead to LOADS of false positives in a test group with low positive response. It's how tests work. Listen to Kary Mullis, the PCR test inventor and Nobel Prize winner. He died August 2019, conveniently... Listen to his opinion of leading CV19 decision makers such as Dr. Fauci.

    Why does everyone think Merc power in the mclaren is going to be a Great Leap Forward? There’s little to base that on. The Renault power unit is very comparable to the merc. How about thinking on the repackaging of the merc in the back could cause them reliability issues next year?

    I've been a Lewis Hamilton fan his entire F1 career, and I've loved watching him win his 7th title, and continue to break records. I say all that to say that my Driver of the Season is Max Verstappen. He's been constantly up in there. Pushing the Mercedes. Out driving his car. Completely outclassing his team mate. He's provided so much excitement this season, and an X factor at the front of the grid. I really hope that Red Bull can produce a car that can challenge Mercedes all season long. I want to see Lewis get challenged again like he did in 2018.

    Unique? 2020 F1 was just as boring as 2019, which was just as boring as 2018, which was just as boring as 2017.... At least F2 is exciting.

    @Petidani0330 no it was better. F2 isn't a technical as f1. F1 has a lot more interesting right down to the half seconds. F2 is just the same car's. Might as well watch reliant Robins race. Or maybe you don't understand the technical side of f1

    @Lachlan McMillan How were most of these races you brought up amazing? Apart from Turkey, the temple of speed and overtakes of Monza and the 'spectacular crashes', they were all the usual borefest. If however you really found those races thrilling, I say you're way too easily impressed. Do you even know what's an amazing race like? I recommend watching F2, usually it delivers them. Compare those races with the ones you brought up, and only then say to me that this F1 season were full of amazing races
