Didn’t expect that... he’s a staple in the paddock.

Will Buxton barely containing himself yesterday morning before FP1...really hits home how much F1 is going to miss Charlie. :wtc:

Commentary kept going on about how exciting the race was, but it was a train in the midfield and nobody except Verstappen made a pass in the top 6. :confused: was I watching a different race to the BBC crew?

Snooze fest, dunno why Failrari didn't stop Leclerc to key him make a run for fastest lap, and WTF was up with them not letting him pass Seb? Only upside of the race was Bottas having an amazing drive hopefully if it's Merc winning it all this year he gets WDC...

Hmm, i really enjoyed this race...even tho there wasn't a lot of passing, I felt like the battles were really good and the cars were able to follow pretty well.  Maybe at a track that isn't so narrow, they'll be able to get by.  Maybe ya'll just jaded, lol. 

 

Some points that I took away: 

-Where the fuck was the Ferrari that was in testing?  This better not be MB championship again....

-Lewis looked defeated...he didn't even go for the fastest lap at the end.

-I *love* the single point fastest lap...it really adds an interesting mix to the end.
-I'm mixed on Red Bull Honda...love that Honda is finally showing that they weren't the whole problem, I like Max well enough - but damn...I hate Red Bull.  Tired of their threats of pulling out of F1.  but man...fuck you McLaren, fuck you. 

 

lol @ Bottas:  https://streamable.com/nltj2

Seb has not exactly lived up to expectations since that crash in the rain last year when he was clearly dominating the field. He needs to lose the stache and get his pointy finger mojo back.

No question Leclerc belongs in the red car. Total class and a future world champ.

I hate to say this but they should have sent Seb to Sauber and let Kimi stay at Ferrari...

Seb has been making silly mistakes for the past 2 seasons... He probably could've won a 'chip if he'd go back to driving like he did at RBR...
Maybe the hype training around Leclerc is true?
Also... Failrari

Vettel is definitely driving in his own head right now...sucks when you're there. 

Gotta feel bad for LeClerc - but yah...the hype around this kid is real.  I'm also impressed with Lando too...not bad for McLaren.  Maybe Ferrari can pull Ric in?!  Lol

Nice gesture by Lewis at the end there too, both on the mic and in the room before the podium...starting to like him more as well now.

Have you guys noticed that in 2 races, the top 3 teams have really had difficulty setting up their cars?  I wonder if this year's aero package is much more sensitive to track layouts...if so, that would be awesome and really mix up the bag.

I mean, throughout testing, Ferrari had the pace, than in the 1st race it looked like MB was sand-bagging.  Second race, and Red Bull is struggling with setup while the MBs were nowhere in pace and the Ferrari's were out in front again....:x:

Probably will settle down within 2-3 races. There is just too little data so far.

I'm most of the way through the Netflix Formula 1 shows... the thing I found most interesting was the Ricardo/Renault/RBR bits... so much drama all tied in together.

I think Kimi is better at driving around a less than perfect balance than Seb, but Seb is outright faster. That being said, I think Leclerc might be as adaptable as Kimi but as fast as Seb. He just needs to work on consistency.

RIP Niki :(  

The stories coming out about McLaren and Alonso and Indy is just fucking hilarious.  Lack of steering wheel before testing, inability to convert metric to imperial, losing 2 days of testing because the paint color was wrong lmao.  

Who the fuck still believes McLaren knows how to win...that entire team should be fired.  Including Alonso.
