Hamilton and LeClerc are the only drivers starting on mediums, so some strategy games are afoot. In my brief viewing of practice I saw Hamilton testing hards. Clearly Hamilton's strategist is thinking differently. Something about this year's car appears to favor Bottas' driving style over Hamilton's.

Bottas I think is a man on a mission (at least until Ham says otherwise ). Remember he should have won last year. If he can pull off a 26 pointer, then he might have some momentum to at least be competitive till mid season.

You mean another fight between Ferrari and Mercedes for pole. I know you probably mean Mercedes getting pole, but this time last year it was Vettel getting all of the poles. Matter of fact for the first part of '08, it was Ham and Vettel splitting all of the poles with one a piece from Ric and Bottas. At least this year, there have been three different pole winners.

According to RB, Max may have been able to beat the Ferraris. That is at least encouraging news. Of course, they botched the final run. Of course, Gasly isn't helping right now either.

Speaking of Gasly, he was way off Max again. I wonder if RB would consider having a look outside the team for a replacement. If Merc dumps Bottas for Ocon, then RB would be a great landing spot.

The top five will all start on mediums.

Does that mean Ham will start on a used set of mediums?

It will be interesting to see who goes for a two stop strategy and who goes for one. It looks like the top five will go one stop with med/hard. Whoever goes for a two stop could grab the fastest lap point.

You always start on a used set of tires. The tires you used during your Q2 fastest lap are the exact same set you'll be starting on.

Familiarizing with tire/tyre rules and regs. Fascinating reading.

https://www.formula1.com/en/champion...nd-wheels.html

One Q3 commentator today said the softest Q3 tire/tyre compound is only good for one lap. Didn't know that.


Mercs, Prancing Horses, and then there was Max.

The softest tyre is only good for one flat-out qualifying lap, but it'll normally do 10-15+ laps in a race the next day. They were talking about its peak performance

Otherwise, half the field would pile into the pits at the end of lap 1 in every race

I’m not sure what the rules are, but it’s an FCC requirement for channel identification. Your local CBS may claim they have enough viewers to still need it to be 4:3 safe. I’m trying to remember where it’s at on our CBS, but I think ours is only 16:9 safe.
Nah the FCC doesn't require it. First of all it's the network identifier, which has no legal baring. The affiliate does; their callsign needs to be flashed once an hour. Don't believe me? I've been watching the Masters all afternoon on CBS. No channel bug, because Augusta mandates a clear screen.

I knew about the top ten having to use the tire they qualified on in Q2. I wasn't aware it was the same tire. I thought it just had to be the same compound.

Hopefully there will be some interesting strategies.

The Torpedo!!
What a beauty. Takes out two in one go!
Champion. This is why Red Bull brought him back into F1 and boy, can the Torpedo deliver.
Another truly great product of the Red Bull young driver program.
Has anyone had more crashes than Finger Boy, Mad Max and the Torpedo??
Yes, our good mates Pastor and Roman have tried hard but they lack the consistency to challenge the elite of the Red Bull school of champions.
Somebody with a liking for maths and figures should do some research and find out just how much Seb, Max and the Torpedo have cost their own teams and the teams they have crashed into.
It's time for other teams to start thinking about sending their repair bills to Dr Helmut Head to pay as the Red Bull highly trained drivers keep crashing into everybody in sight.

He had a snap and had to correct by turning into the slide. Not his fault as explained by Ant in race control and Martin.

Well then, clearly he needs to have a long serious chat with his very naughty car and tell it stop "snapping" and behave.

I'm sure that will do the trick!
Thank you for your help mrtickleuk.
PS. Perhaps you could contact the race stewards and tell them that a grave injustice was done to the Torpedo, that it was his cars fault and had nothing to do with him!
Especially as he has such a clean prior record, it's amazing that they didn't let him off his penalty based on his past exemplary behaviour.

on the Skypad Ant agreed with him that it was a racing incident. But Martin said he'd changed his mind after seeing it post-race and blamed Kvyat. But Nico said that it was too harsh, yes he may have initially triggered the events, but he should not have been penalised. It was a lap 1 racing incident involving 3 cars and they are supposed to let them race. The footage from Sainz's car was the clearest.

That's why I was so pleased with the mature way Kvyat conducted himself in the post-race interview. He was calm, said he didn't agree with the stewards and wanted to speak to them behind closed doors to understand how they came to their decision, so that he could learn. Over and over she pushed him to try to get him emotional or expand on what he thought, but no - "I want to speak to them behind closed doors first". That's not what the old Kvyat would have said at all and he's definitely different. This is my opinion.

Yeah, had that been any other driver, except GRO maybe, they would have been given no more than a +5 time penalty. What he got was based on his reputation. And what a dissapointing race. All hail our Silver Arrow overlords.

Ham wins one hell of a boring race.

Torpedo lost it in a racing incident, but it was still on him. I think you could go either way. It isn't like he was behind trying to make up places. He was in front of both the McLarens and they were trying to pass. Still, he is probably gone at the end of the season.

Poor, poor Sabrina. "I am faster. Let me by." Leclerc thought they were managing tires and the team tells him to move over. Sabrina promptly loses even more time behind Mercedes. Come on Tifosi. Give me your fanboy reaction.

Albon did a great job coming from pit lane to 10th. He held off Gros in the closing laps on old tires. With an assist from the moving chicane.


And the moving chicane. I know there were a lot of people hoping that Kubica was the fairy tale story this year. He isn't and should not be anywhere near a F1 car. Let's be blunt. He only got the drive because of money.

Agreed 'Glo, but since our mate Robert Kubica is not anywhere near an F1 car everything is alright then, isn't it!!
The question is, why would anyone actually put up money for that heap of bolts he has to strap himself into??

Again I am thankful for the QuickMode, 30% faster, playback feature on my Tivo DVR. It only took 75 minutes to watch the Chinese ultimate snoozefest.

My only hope is the drastic rule changes for the 2021 season, but I am skeptical that Liberty Media has the capability to make them.

LOL, you got me there.

That being said, Williams could have went with Ocon and less money. Ocon would have been a good benchmark for Russell.

I used to fast forward through the races as well. It was great to watch a snoozefest in a hour.

It is not up to Liberty. It is the FIA. Liberty and the FIA are working hand in hand, so hopefully they will have a good solution.

One thing I don't particularly care for is that they want to spec everything except the aero and engine. I would rather they speced the aero and left everything else free. Bring back active suspension and CVTs.

In Tivo QuickMode you still hear the announcers and the original sound pitch is preserved - they don't sound like chipmunks, they just talk faster.

I see the flak for Ferrari and Seb is already underway. Of course when it was reversed last week, not a peep.

They need to release a stand alone version for use with the normal speed chipmunks on NASCAR NBC.

To be blunt, that is how a fair bit of the grid got their drives.

Without the teams all being limited to similar spending, new rules won't make a difference after a season or two. So first and foremost, that has to be implemented and enforced and I am skeptical it will happen.

If you truly have talent, then even a poor car can show it off - Fernando Alonso started in a Minardi.

"Well, I have to say last Saturday at Silverstone we were celebrating the motorsport history of Mercedes, being this year 125 years since motorsport started for Mercedes. So I got to drive the W125 from 1937. There was more than 600hp, it felt like a rocket on wheels: no proper brakes, no grip at all. And just imagining those drivers racing flat out on the kind of tracks they were using back then, I have a lot of respect from them. You need some big balls to do it, and every time you'd risk your life 100 percent every time you jumped in the car." - Bottas

To be honest all of the racing was boring this weekend, except for FE. Again. FE may not be a great sounding race and the courses are way too tight but the racing is the best IMO.

I only caught Long Beach, but yup, a total snooze fest. I had to check the guide to make sure I was not watching F1. :-)

A bit of action at the start. A bit of action on the last lap. Maybe a decent pass or two involving Herta (before he binned it) or maybe O'ward, but up front no one was in the same zip code as Rossi.

FWIW, I did watch a bit of FE quali, and I just can't get past the sound. It is "dentist drill" annoying to me.

A bit of action at the start. A bit of action on the last lap. Maybe a decent pass or two involving Herta (before he binned it) or maybe O'ward, but up front no one was in the same zip code as Rossi.

That's it. It's not "it's not great sounding", it's that it's actively annoying. That is one hell of a lot of "it's" in one sentence.

I watched Q also, but not the race.

Best thing about the race was that amazing double stop from Merc. Perfection and grace.
