  1. F1 this season as always has been spectacular and beautiful with all the stylish and sassy cars and breathtaking aerodromes for tracks. Its the sport, i.e. the racing, that has been taking hits with it becoming more and more artificial, dull and controlled. However I do have some (very less but still) hopes from the next season.

    With the continuing decrease in ‘raw racing’ quotient I wonder till when people will come to see F1 just for seeing the cool cars and the grid girls and the engine noise while reminiscing the old times.

  2. Great photo of Perez. It must have been taken in FP2 as there is not a whiff of a capacity crowd in the background.

    1. Yeah. That one is stunning. So beautiful.
