Mercedes powered silver car vs Ferrari car.
A brit and a finn in the merc, a german in the ferrari challenging them.

Except that the finn is the slower one driving the merc this time, but not by much.

A bit of a Deja Vu isnt it?

Also there's a canadian driver on the grid (in a Williams), two other german drivers, a danish driver called Magnussen

I was thinking the same thing.

Top two teams miles in front, a big team with a rebadged Renault engine in third and closer the 4th and 5th than 2nd etc.

Just after a big rule change as well.

Only difference would be that this german is nowhere near Shumacher. If only Lewis and Michael would have been the same generation, we would have seen a battle between two of the best drivers of all time.

If that's the only difference you must think Lewis is just like Coulthard.

On the back of a regulation change as well

Although instead of intending to go narrower / slower they've gone wider / faster

A Canadian in a Williams
A hilarious Brazilian in a white car (okay, a bit cruel on Massa)
Verstappen in the Stewart/Jaguar/Red Bull (although we can expect him to replace Magnussen after Monaco)
A disappointing start for the British guy and his German team mate in the black and yellow midfield car. (I'll get my money on a Palmer/Hulk 1/2 in Spa, after Vettel's attempt to er... lap Hamilton goes awry.)

What's Esteban Tuero up to these days?

I didn't think that through properly, did I? :) Back then it was the Finn vs the German. I actually rate Mika very highly and even Schumacher said he was the best he has come up against. But imo, Hamilton is probably the closest you can get to Schumachers ability and longevity from this generation, thus my statement about Lewis vs Michael.

Tuero is only a year older than Kimi. I am sure he could still do a job.

Very similar to the 1998 season in some ways, it will be interesting.

8O

Genuinely surprising given that he left the sport nearly 20 years ago but actually makes sense.

I didn't think Tuero was all that bad to be honest. Should've been given another chance.

Tuero did extremely well given how under qualified for F1 he was. He wasn't actually pushed he retired himself. He didn't like being an F1 driver.

Damaged his spine I thought, although I reckon he got a healthy pay off from Hakkinen after. :nod:

After 2 races in 1998, it looked like Mclaren were going to walk the title.

At the moment, things look pretty close between Ferrari and Merc.

Before the final race, I will send Ferrari a large package of dry ice with a message: DO NOT LET THE DRIVER DOWN AGAIN.
