  1. Albon and Sainz just don’t seem to be able to stay away from each other when it comes to their respective grid-positions, and neither in the races except for the Belgian GP.

    Turns out my dad was born on exactly the same day as Alan Jones. Happy 73rd Birthday AJ and Dan

  3. McLaren has made impressive gains forward! If they keep doing what they do, they could become a serious problem for the top 3 next season.

      Just a couple of comments about the venue. I’ve gone each year since this track opened, and they continue to improve things. However, there were a few things this year I think went backwards, for the spectators. Food vendor variety was significantly reduced, with a couple of the largest (and best) not there, and those that were there had multiple venues. Alcohol outlets were also fewer, looks like the Circuit now has a monopoly on that. The toilet trailers are nice, but last year they also had a hand washing station next to them, and this year it was gone. Hand sanitizer only. Also, I did not see the BIG F1 store, just the smaller F1 outlets (maybe it was at a part of the track I did not get to, but was not in the center area where it has always been).

  4. Interesting directive by fia: power cable near fuel flow sensor prohibited.
    It seems that was the trick Ferrari used.
    The electronic ‘s were influenced resulting in more fuel during bics

      1. And others, media will catch up soon.

        1. But FIA already declared Ferrari’s PU ‘100%’ legal after recent inspection?

          1. It’s not the engine itself. It’s about tampering with the fuel flow data by placing the main power cable next to it. Only working during accelerating with full hybrid active.

  5. From where I was sitting (turn 15, looking all the way up the straight) it looked as if Lewis gave Valtteri a great tow. Everyone’s second run was slower, because the wind dropped to nothing.
