So… How do you call yourself an American team with the Russian Federation flag draped all over it? How can you call yourself a Formula 1 team when you’ve already foregone the entire 2021 season with no development on the calendar? Is it any wonder why this sorry excuse for a team – which gets its chassis from Dallara and pretty much everything else from Ferrari – continues to be a backmarker? Fuck it being an “American” team. Hope they crash and burn and disappear from F1 altogether.
Does this actually surprise anyone? Grosjean has shown flashes of brilliance in the past but JUST flashes isn’t going to cut it. As for Magnussen, there’s still fuel in the tank but will he get another shot somewhere else? Not likely. Perhaps he can follow in his old man‘s footsteps and do sports car racing.
As for who may replace the duo, whispers of yet another trust fund baby entering the sport are abound. Do we really need Nikita Mazepin sitting alongside other trust fund babies Latifi and Stroll on the grid?
