  1. For the 2023 season, what is the over/under for number of race weekends before Alonso punches Stroll in the face?

    1. Oh Jim. Alonso has been very vocal recently, I can’t wait to see how he will react at Stroll’s Sr team. I expect fireworks for sure. But hey, the pay is better at Aston Martin.

  2. Unnecessarily risky defending by Ocon & Stroll against their teammates.
    Ironically, Alonso still re-caught & passed him towards the end.​

    1. Hilarious, I missed Alonso getting ahead of Ocon.

      The move from Ocon on Alonso was stupid undeniably, either Alonso let his frustration get the better of him and drove into the back of him or he’s tactically making Alpine weak for next season by helping McLaren to get in front.

      It’s Alonso, who knows the devious plots going on in his mind!

      1. he’s tactically making Alpine weak for next season by helping McLaren to get in front.

        If I am not mistaken, Alpine gets more time to improve aero if they finish behind McLaren, don’t they?

        1. Wind tunnel time is reset on June 30 each year. The situation of the championship on June 30 this year is that Mclaren is ahead of Alpine so they will get less wind tunnel time though if they will finish ahead in the championship they will get more prize money than Alpine.

  3. I missed the sprint. What happened to Albon??

    Glad to see Mick Schumacher in 12th place after the Sprint Session. Let’s see if he can get higher in the race tomorrow as a take that to the naysayers
