    I feel in the end the mercrs will find the answers not only that i just freel Lewis with his experience and racing know how will just edge it. But i also feel after this season lewis will retire. And max is the future. We are all so lucky that we have all these amazing talented drivers in this era. But max is the new era and in my mind Lewis will find the way to win the championship this season 😊😊😊

    Guess focus on next year and not doing any development on the same year toward the end made Mercedes relax and perhaps a bit afraid to try new things. Though it did made last year more stable and the car flying with accustomed drivers.

    We don't know what the difference in raw pace is yet. I meen it's not like this is the first time that mercedes has been pushed in the opening race. In 2018 Vettel was leading the championship after the summer break so this isn't really that unusual. But still great tho!

    My prediction- Lewis & Max fighting wire to wire but at the end Lewis will bag his 8th/9th title and retired. For 2021/2022, Alonso & Hulkerberg/Russell will step to Mercedes while Max Verstappen stay at RedBull bcause has no escape clause bcause RedBull still have the fastest car.. mercedes win by strategy..

    It's going to be close, but I think Mercedes will probably edge it out by the end: with strategy, the drivers delivering their best and hopefully reliability as well. They have managed to do it before, and I think they could do it again! (That is unless RB come up with a big clear advantage and carry it through the entire season, in which case I see Mercedes potentially drop 2021 development, sacrifice their 2021 title to RB and focus on 2022 instead.)

Look at 2020, 2019! Russia GP - start testing for LH44; Silverstone- Hams 3 wheels finish and Bottas fail! Germany GP - crazy rain race and 1 minute pit stop for LH44; Bahrain -Russel and Bottas failed at PC pitstop ; and others. I think RB have more chances for win 2021 right now!

      Best second driver - merc (Beta Bottas is still the best beta) Best car - probably RB but not much and nothing the Merc engineers can't catch up. Best Race and Tech Engineer - Merc (base on previous season) Best Pit Crew - RB (Merc sometimes fumbled up and ruin their race) Best Driver - I would still say Lewis, his experience and his shameless ability to exploit loopholes are still beyond' Max's reach.

      @Kartikey Bhatia Perez at Bahrain went from pitlane (p20) to p5. You said "dude went from p14 to p5"

      @Sten Raudvits not true! It was from P17 to P5 in Spa. He did do it from pitlane (P20) to P5 in Russia 2019 but it was not his debut. Have to add that he was probably in the 3rd fastest car att the time and not in the fastest!
