Stroll's really having a hard time driving this Williams - and he comes from  really solid background.  This is a good start to the new F1 regs requiring a much more physical car again.  I like that...or he could just be the next Crashanator.

How'd they get worse? Seems like the problem goes way beyond Gilles Simon.

RIP Surtees...

Everytime I see him in an interview, he's always smiling...an absolute legend in mind, being fast in a car and bike was incredible...

I understand the words individually in that article. Put them all together in some form of context and I'm a deer in the headlights.

Something about airflow and vanes and inlets. Got it.

I wonder how much a wheel rim goes for. I'd love 2-4 of them. Make a coffee table or something.

How can Honda build a MotoGP and IndyCar engine but can't do F1 after 3 seasons.

I blame the sample size. Every one else is discovering and fixing issues with 3x the number of engines running concurrently. If F1 didn't have testing restrictions then this would be a non issue, but since testing is so regulated it's hurting Honda.

They also need to get better correlation between track and dyno testing, so probably more work needs to be done on the simulated environment, but you can't do that if you're constantly in crisis mode
