Fuck yeah, we’re finally here. Drive to survive season 3. I’ve been to 5 races and I love DtS because it’s gotten so many people I know into f1.
Where all my f1 homies at?

ASAPJackBeyond hyped on f1 rn. So glad I found this sport through dts
Super exited to see sainz at Ferrari this year. He’s amazingly consistent. Redbull will keep a lot more pressure on Merc this year. Rosberg was a better driver than Hamilton. Btw in my opinion, Hamilton totally had the opurtunity to give albon more room in Austria. Yuki will have a good season, as he was strong in pre-season testing (yes I know abt the drs thing). George Russel will score points this yr. Lando seems a lot more serious and will put more pressure on Danny than people will expect. I used to think Lance was only a pay driver but he has made his place in my opinion (Turkish gp) and is very strong in the wet. Lawrence Stroll is a very scary man. Bottas is too submissive to Hamilton.
Super great season of drive to survive. I’m surprised they didn’t include George’s drive for Mercedes, but Gasly at Monza was incredible. Sometimes annoying with chronological order of events but it’s such a good show.
Predictions for the constructors:
Merc, Redbull, McLaren, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Alpine, Alfa Romeo, Alpha Tuari, Williams, Haas.
Haas continues to be on the decline to complete disaster. Who is you fav driver op? Absolutely awesome you have been to some races. I watched dts this summer and have been hooked ever since. Never been a passionate fan about a sport like this before.
ReturnToMonkeyEspecially lately with the actual sport getting a little stale, I think it's the unsung hero of retaining fans.
BradFiAusNzCoCaSainz will be super interesting to watch. He isn’t always the fastest but I’m sure it will be interesting, nonetheless. That reminded me of Alonso coming back. I’m so not excited about that. He always irritated me. He just can’t help but just bitch and moan and complain about everything. He really sucks the life out of a team. Plus, I always thought he was pretty overrated.
We will see about Red Bull and Merc. Merc is known for sandbagging in the beginning to trick everyone else.
Yeah, I think Hamilton could have given Albon more room. Normally, I’d say that’s the cost of doing business but what makes it really sad is that that could have been Albon’s only chance EVER to get a podium.
Im convinced that Danny’s string of drivetrain issues are due to A) how he has the engineers set up his car or B) he’s too hard on the cars.
I thought stroll was a shit pay driver until a few years ago. He had a good race (I think it was Canada in like 2017 or something - I can’t remember). That’s when I realized he can race when he wants to. Yes, Bottas is way too submissive but I think Merc probably had a very serious conversation with him before signing. It was just so toxic for them with nico and Lewis. I actually liked Nico better than Lewis. He can be kinda cringe but all the hate is not deserved. He lost to Lewis in 2014 because he had drivetrain issues at the last race. He could have been 2014 WDC. He’s also the only teammate to beat Lewis for a WDC. So for people to say he isn’t up to Lewis’ level is just not accurate.
It’s going to sound cliche but I guess my favorite driver is Räikkonnen. I love his attitude towards racing and he’s FAST even in slow cars. Also, he won the first race I ever watched live (Australia 2013) and I saw him win live the next race he won (Austin 2018 - 5 year gap in winning!). That was the year I started dating my now wife and she is from Finland. So it just made sense ha
I hated him when he first arrived, but I like Verstappen too. He’s just fun to watch. You know he’s going balls to the wall every race.
Leclerc is good too but he’s hit or miss. I always secretly cheer for Bottas to beat Hamilton. Hamilton is amazing, you can’t deny that, but it’s getting boring. I was at the race when he won his 3rd title (Austin 2015) and it was like “wow he’s tied with senna” and it was really cool. 4 titles later and it’s a snoozefest.
Who's your favorite driver?
F1 is extremely addictive. Welcome to the club!
ReturnToMonkeyDoes anyone know if there's a free reliable stream to F1 races this year? Not having cable kinda sucks for sports
BradFiAusNzCoCaYou got vpn?
ASAPJackLawrence Stroll is a very scary man.
chills__This man is terrifying
SessionDTS I think made him out to be a villain for the sake of it. They are really good at painting of a picture of some people in the paddock.
They certainly did not do Max Verstappen any favors.
I'm psyched on the season. Hoping to see Red Bull fight Mercedes. It sounds like this years car is much more manageable than last years, and the Merc looked nervous in testing.
I just wonder how Alex Albon would have done in this years car as opposed to the one from last year that took a prodigy like Max Verstappen to make look semi-good.
New season same old shit... I 've watched F1 since the 80's but this shit is beyond boring.
ASAPJackThis break is killing me. @BradFiAusNzCoCa what are your podium predictions for Imola
