  1. Another case of keeping the race start time unchanged, meaning 4+ hours before sunset rather than the absolute minimum recommendation of 3, even though Suzuka’s sunset times around this time of year allow for 3+ with 15:00, which I therefore expected when the early-season switch became evident via the race calendar announcement, & partly also because April is less rainy on average than September & October, but still better with more lead time & nevertheless likewise unchanged timings also in Europe.

    1. Every. Single. Time…

      1. Not every single time.
        I didn’t post anything on the equivalent Bahrain GP article & don’t plan to do so for all remaining events separately either.
        Only a few selected ones.

  2. The tension, the drama.
    Anyone want to run a book on who comes 2nd?

    1. Sainz for P2.

    2. singpore all over again. sainz wins, russel crashes out and then max smashes everyone at suzuka by about half a minute
