F1 Vacation

So! A four week break.

The drivers will be relaxing as much as possible, but I'll bet the teams are still working like trojan horses to fix and enhance the cars as far as the rules allow.

Mercedes for sure will receive the constructors prize and one of their drivers the World Championship.

I'm leaning towards Lewis because of his tenacity and superb driving skills even under impossible odds such as the last two races, starting from the back and finishing on the podium.

I think Ricardo is now a better driver than Seb and will continue to out perform his team mate.

Williams will get stronger and be real contenders for the rest of the season.
Next year I wouldn't be surprised to see Fernando in a Williams.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.

4 weeks is a streach but it is Spa when the come back!

Lewis does seam unbeatable if he does not self destruct. Nico does not appear as fast but better glued together.

In last years car Vettel is a different driver and perhaps ahead of Riccardo, but this year and this car he is getting waxed. I think Riccardo will be WDC one day.

Next year will be a very interesting year. Renault will have a strong engine, McLaren will have Honda and (my guess) a new driver and Ferrari...well they will still have Alonzo, perhaps.

And no vacation for Bernie. He will be negotiating with the German authorities a 100 Million Dollar "deal" to have his trial discontinued...Money cannot buy justice ?????

Of the new comers, off the top of my head Ricciardo, Bottas, and Kvyat are quite impressive.
