    needs something to mix it up, they are trying to stop racing point from getting close....

    it's all got so complicated with sporting regs and technical regs, it's turning into a farce.... if they just made the engines all suck air through a regulated orifice, have to complete the race on 100 litres of fuel, make the car fit inside a defined box, and everything else is free and unregulated, we might actually get some real innovative design and something a bit more interesting.

    the way it's going/gone they might as well make it a single car formula, as, if you take all the livery off, you wouldn't be able to distinguish the cars anyway


    oh, and stop the special treatment of ferrari. F1 isn't ferrari.... while we are on the subject, guessing the racing point 'controversy' is a handy distraction from the FIA/Ferrari engine farce and cover-up over the winter! (or will that only come up again if ferrari gets further up the grid again?)

    You wish came true Jonathan ... and the ‘something’ turned out to be tyres ...

    So with some more hot races coming maybe the season may not be as predictable as we were beginning to think ...

    Congrats to Max and Red Bull for setting their car up for the race in Qualifying, not chasing pole position, but going with a strategy that suits the car. Well done to Alex for a series of great overtakes.
    Mercedes looked as is they were really struggling the entire race.
    Le Clerc seems to have a different car and engine to Seb, the Haas and Alfa drivers...
    Why Racing Point pitted Hulk can only have one answer - to let Stroll through.
    McLaren & Williams were a bit of a non-event and Danny Ric was unlucky trying to pass slower cars.

    Hopefully that will mean that in future races, the Mercs will have to cover that angle and the races up front will be much closer.
    Hopefully The Hulk will be racing again in F1 next season.

    hulk might be racing the rest of this season yet, how long does it take to get over and test clear of covid????

    i mean the whole quarantine thing is to give time for the virus to show itself, assuming you enter the country with no symptoms, and if nothing after 10 days then you are good to go.... Perez has tested positive, so the quarantine period was irrelevant, he now has to wait til he's not flagging the covid test, and who knows how long that is.....

    From what I've read Covid-19 can leave pretty undesired residuals like fatique and less concentration for example. Being a F1 driver is a pretty demanding task. Free of Covid-19 doesn't mean he'll be able to drive a F1 car. I hope Perez recovers fast without such issues.

    My understanding is that Checo's asymptomatic, so I wouldn't expect this to have any long term impact on his health.

    Ther is another way we could conceivably see Nico in an F1 car this year...a red car! If the Ferrari / Seb debacle continues I could easily see one side or the other crying 'enough'!

    So on to Spain and some nice hot weather. Does anyone know the tyre choices for this weekend?

    Seb is already out at Ferrari , probably explains his sulky attitude there.

    Carlos Sainz has been confirmed as his replacement already, Riccardo to McLaren, Alonzo to Renault .... Seb hasn't got many options, depends how much Aston Martin want a big name, and if Perez or stroll get dropped from stroll snr's race team...

    Albon struggels with the RB16 like Gasly last year (maybe a little bit less) but they give him more time. The RB16 seems to be a wild horse only MadMax is able to tame.

    I don't know the tire choice next weekend but it seems as if Pirelli has it in its hands to give more spectacle by going softer and raising the tire pressure.
