I was watching live when he had his crash and it was pretty bad. Rick generally doesn't complain but others say it killed his road racing ability since he couldn't operate the pedals properly with the constant upshifting and downshifting required.

I liked Mears. Maybe if he hadn't had those accidents he
wouldn't have retired and won his 5th Indy. I would have liked
to see him in F1 for just one year

It's all down to Pirelli as they have been adding cumin, turmeric and chilli to the tyre compounds to spice things up!  :D

 :DD :DD :DD

That would certainly explain the blowouts in the last race. But maybe they only did this for Mercedes powered cars as I seem to remember it was only Mercedes powered cars which suffered blowouts. The conspiracy deepens!

That makes sense, Mercedes is German, and while Germany is known for many things, 'spice' isn't one of them. Red Bull is a Thai company though, and we know that Thai food has a fantastic blend of spice!

Yeah good find Dare, I enjoyed reading that.  :good:

Hard to see how a pothead, albeit a fast one, would be good for F1 in the 80s, even though we had a spate of hard living/drinking drivers in the 70s.

You might like this short piece about 'Rocket' Rick Mears brush with F1, courtesy of Bernie, Dare.

Well to add to the conspiracy, Lewis has said he was suffering from long Covid for a lot of the season. Or maybe he was instructed to sandbag to keep the season interesting? :D :D

Conspiracy theorists.....chime in.

I can't see that being the case as the other Merc-powered teams would have to be on board.

I can see Liberty & FIA wanting a closer season so doing all in their power to advance Red Bulls chances and retard Mercs.
