  1. I like Ocon’s Schumi tribute helmet design.
    Hamilton arrived being quite considerably over-dressed for temps well into the 20s, LOL.
    Surprisingly, the speed bumps from Variante Della Roggia have got removed, but not the ones from Prima Variante.
    Once again, I don’t get the present obsession with removing speed bumps, sausage curbs, & or baguette curbs from places that have been in use for a long time.
    Rarely (or never in some places) have they caused issues, especially at slow-speed corners where they’ve mostly only got put.
    Still, people suddenly started becoming slightly hysterical about them in the recent past, even though they’ve existed for a reason.

    1. You might want to reconsider your opinion about kerbs at the second chicane

      1. @hollidog Still, inconsistent to treat the two chicanes differently.

        1. @jerejj you’re right, they should be removed everywhere. They are hugely unsafe and not fit for purpose.

          Look at Peronis crash from a few years ago at the same track:
          The punishment doesn’t fit the crime, going half a metre wide shouldn’t launch a car 15 metres into the air and into a marshals post.

          Look at Sophia Floersch in Macau a few years ago. There was another one at Spa in the gp3 days at the bus stop as well. We should consider ourselves lucky not to have seen incidents of this severity in F1, yet.

  2. Why not get rid of the first chicane instead? It’s rubbish and always has been. What happened to the plan to bypass Curva Grande using an infield access road?

  3. SUV as Medical Car. Still ridiculous. Safety is paramount but marketing is more paramount. I’m curious to see the first SUV Medical Car incident where this thing just rolls over.
