  1. I wouldn’t be surprised for a Ricciardo-penalty. Gasly’s pace, though. Getting jumped by two drivers who started behind him.

  2. Ditch this track. I’d rather have Abu Dhabi than this, honestly.

    1. Back to Rheims!

      1. Even Magny-Cours was better.

    Abysmal race by Gasly. Lost positions in the 3rd best car on the grid. I expect a switch in that car.

      Kvyat. He’s looked better than Gasly this season IMO.

  4. That’s more like it from Kubica!

    Putting up a real fight to the best rookie driver and current F2 champ – not bad for an ‘old guy driving with one arm’ so some say…

    Not good by gasly, and grosjean with his unsafe re-enter radio message is just a smack in the face for race fans. Stop crying on the radio and demand action from the stewards.

    1. Its exactly what the fans want otherwise FIA wouldnt cherrypick it to broadcast.

  6. I’ll be surprised if Gasly is still in that seat after the summer break. The gap between him & Max is too big, driving style differences or not. The best drivers have always been adaptable, no exceptions.

      Well yes, Bottas is at least within 20 seconds of Hamilton and has sometimes beaten him. What was this? Can’t remember exactly but i think it was a minute or over. That is way too big. Even when a driver messes up and starts from the back, the gap to their team mate isn’t often this big.

  7. Return the French GP to Rheims – a track for heros.

    1. @gnosticbrian, wasn’t most of the “heroic” aspects about the old Reims-Gueux track the fact that it was mostly made up of long straights, with the two longer straights making up nearly 60% of the total lap?

      Whilst having two massive straights might be something that Ferrari might like, given how quick they are in a straight line, it’d be a pretty boring circuit in a modern racing car. There weren’t any particularly challenging corners around the circuit, and most of the action that occurred at the time was overtaking on the straights due to slipstreaming – and forgive me for being mistaken, but aren’t most fans complaining about overtakes on the straight like that being boring?

      1. anon – Mike Hawthorn won the 1953 French GP at Rheims after a sixty lap battle with Juan Manuel Fangio. Hawthorn and Fangio are said to have swapped the lead at virtually every corner. After 500 km of racing, the four lead cars were less than 5 seconds apart.

  8. 1979 Villeneuve – Arnoux Dijon battle – just imagine how many penalties could be issued to both according to modern rules – leaving track, unsafe crap and banging wheels – but that’s what I call pure reacing.
