  1. Good job by Nick DeVries today. Very impressive yesterday and today

  2. Oh, so we CAN end the race under SC if there is no time to Do all the procedures required to end the SC. Well would you look at that!

    1. And utterly unsatisfying it was too.

      1. +1 exactly!

        1. So?
          The make pressure to change the rules properly. Do not invent procedures like last year.

      2. It doesn’t have to be satisfying. It has to adhere to the rulebook.

        1. It can be both, but today is wasn’t.

        2. Absolutely possible to be satisfying + adhere to the rulebook, check abu dhabi, when they say “lapped cars will not overtake”, I bet that was a typo, it was meant to be “lapped cars will now overtake”, and if that’s the case they would’ve made in time to unlap them all.

  3. Nice to see Ferrari still challenging Red Bull this year.

    1. They didn’t really challenge though, did they? This was a bit disappointing for me, verstappen had leclerc covered in either scenario and perez looked good too, showing the car was stronger.

      1. I should say time has come now for MV winning the championship very soon and Red Bull dominating this year.

        I know Ferrari and Mercedes has nothing left to do but they did their best actually.

  4. All the “fans” who complained that Abu Dhabi 2021 should have ended under SC are now complaining that the FIA listened to their complaints and ended Monza 2022 under SC

    1. Horner is that you whispering?

    2. This is such a transparent comment. Congratulations on your utter predictably. Keep it classy

    3. I disagree i complained last year. I believe they did the right thing today.

      1. I believe they did the right thing last year and wrong this year, don’t like SC finishes.

  5. How the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP should’ve ended.

    1. Gladly they didn’t!!!

  6. That’s a hell of update Red Bull brought for Verstappen in SPA. His car is insanely fast. It doesn’t matter where he starts, he loses no time at all.
    I wonder how much time it will take for other teams to figure this out.

    PS: For those who thinks, “oh, it’s only Verstappen” – well, he wasn’t that fast in the first half of the season. They definitely upgraded something on the car.

    1. New ligjter floor etc…

      1. Max is still driving the pre-Spa floor. Lighter floor will only come later.

        1. Surely the pre-Spa floor would be illegal as it breaches the new TD that came in after the summer break. As far as I’m aware Max has a new floor and Perez doesn’t.

          1. @rob8k what do you mean, surely? The allegations put towards RBR for supposedly being in breach were only ever rumors and never stated as fact by the FIA. Horner went on record multiple times saying they weren’t worried and that he didn’t expect to have to change anything.

            Max has the pre-Spa floor. Checo has a new one.

          2. @mattds FIA wouldn’t state anything if the part in question at the time was legal. The TD went into effect at Spa so if RB changed the floor then it would be legal and nothing would be said from FIA. Still it was even on this site that stated Perez was using older specification floor which was due to cost cap issues.

          3. @rob8k indeed, the FIA wouldn’t say it. Which is exactly my point. It was all rumors and gossip.

            We’ve seen by now who was impacted and who wasn’t. Red Bull have clearly not regressed. Ferrari seem to be having a harder time. They were nowhere in Spa and Zandvoort. And while better today, even without (V)SC’s probably still would’ve lost out to Max starting from seventh.

            And no, sorry, Perez is really really really using the newest spec floor while Max is on the older floor. If this site has said anything other than that it’s wrong.

            Here’s some info:

    2. Red Bull got faster?
      Or Ferrari have impact from the flexifloor TD and have gotten comparatively slower?

      1. The 1 million dollars question.

      2. Mercedes generally speaking is closer to ferrari, so who knows, I would think the 2nd option.

  7. The Sky-Commentary from Croft is getting more annoying by the weekend. Last week it was the ‘Mercedes is holy’ show, now he’s raking up Abu Dhabi again and shoving rules aside and justifying boo’ing of a driver who didn’t do anything wrong.

    Luckily Brundle and Karun are puling him into sensibility more often than not, but blimey: it’s anti-everything as long as it doesn’t come from the UK…

    1. Well, Red Bull is also mostly a British team, isn’t?
      So that couldn’t be the reason for Sky’s bias. Maybe they have a ‘special’ relationship with Ineos after the takeover of their cycling team.

  8. The SC problem is deep-rooted IMHO. You can’t lose 6 race laps to recover a car parked on the side of the road.
    Full stop.

    1. There are dozens of gaps where cars can be easily pulled behind the barrier. Maybe it’s time the FIA starts penalizing drivers who drive past a bunch of those to just park in a random location. Vettel showed how it’s supposed to be done.

      1. this has been the most puzzling question for whole of f1 for me. i understand that some tracks they cant make parks/escape routes on very few select tracks, but majority of tracks are suitable for certain mods for safely parking cars, or just get some special vinch/crane/lift system. or to remove any controversial race ending, any parked car to bring red flag if it is in the last 5 or so laps. so if there is advantage, all gets it! right now, any car can park anywhere they want and this is really a bad idea that cause so much stir up/controversy. and you cant blame people when some teams own/partner other teams, and those side kicks causing these stuff. like one time just at the right time, not one but 2 haas cars created sc issues. similarly last week AT caused a controversial stop/VSC situation and certain partner gained advantage massively. last year ending was disgusting enough, and suddenly they stick to the rules. funny enough horner wasnt busy over the radio lobbying green flag race… it was only one ferrari driver… max was too quite as well. where are all those green flaggers now?
        they always create one controversy and they say will fix it afterwards… once damage is done, it is done and it is disgusting! and f1 is really not learning anything from past (intentional or quite obvious) mistakes and never admits to those mistakes to exempt themselves from any wrongdoing. they always create a loophole to stay blameless

    2. Albo94 if you watched F2/F3 this weekend it takes ages to recover cars due to the Monza being prehistoric in nature.
      FIA stewards are aware of the delays in lower formula recovering cars after crashes so when tractors was on track they knew that it would take time to clear so a red flag and restart would’ve been fair.

  9. De Vries, absolutely DOTD. First F1 race, with points finish.
    Ferrari actually didn’t really screw their strategy much, except they could have put Charle on the hard tyre, which could have given the win.

    RBR strategy again spot on, getting both drivers in the Top 6.

    1. RBR again sacrificed Perez race, only to take away fastest lap point from LEC. Would have lost him 2 places, if McLaren didnt also pit Norris afterwards for no reason.

      1. you cant blame mclaren after last year’s ending? can you? these cowboys do whatever they want, so they tried the safer option, yes they lost a point or two but what if they green flagged it. i wish they did just that exactly last year just hear voices of rbr’s reaction

  10. It’s never a good day in a sporting competition when 9 out of 10 participants seem clueless about how to challenge for the win. At least Ferrari made qualifying interesting, but the rest of the teams has been miles off the pace.

  11. Will be interesting to see how many Hamilton/Verstappen derangement syndrome comments we’ll see over the next few days

    1. that is why some of us in the comments have the moral obligation of make fun of both.

  12. Pretty hard to believe VER and PER are racing the same car.

    1. Didn’t you see how perez was holding up with hard tyres that ran basically the whole race? He was gonna end up 5th without any SC or silly pit stop, he had like 14 sec margin and wasn’t losing enough to justify a pit stop, so silly move by red bull, but if anything perez to me confirms red bull was the fastest car.
