If max ends up winning hopefully it’s by more than 5 points after that horrible “non-race” at Spa which IMO should not have been run and no points awarded.
I suspect teams will focus their setups exclusively on qualifying since it’s probably going to end up being a near Monaco like procession. So everything about the DRS zones is largely irrelevant.

Yeah, well they drove around behind a safety car for a few laps but I’ll respectfully disagree that a race was held. IMO no green flag laps means there was no race, regardless of what technicality they tried to […]
There does need to be a 0 option. This wasn’t even a race. I understand the issue of driver safety but they should have just cancelled it and not awarded any points. It’s baffling why there isn’t some minimum […]
+1 Thanks for the nudge. I was one of those that did scroll past and am glad not to have missed it.

The line on his face looks like a mark from the helmet padding.
The right side graph of lap time deficits really does a nice job of illustrating last season’s bunching of the midfield teams with Mercedes ahead and Red Bull stuck in no-mans-land between them.
I always watch the races time delayed and this is the first one I’ve ever fast-forwarded through and then didn’t even bother to watch the end. I’ve never rated any race lower than a 3 but gave this one a 1. If […]
I noticed that as well. Certainly not a world impacting issue, but it did bug me for a split second.
I see it differently. The halo made it possible for him to get out of the car. Without it his helmet would have taken a direct hit from the armco and likely have been pinned it against the pod. Even if he did […]
Looking at the photos of the pod wedged in the barrier after the fire was out, there was a piece of armco basically bisecting the top opening of the halo. It crosses from the front center support to just left of […]
Any track on which the race tends to be a procession (i.e. difficult to overtake) would be completely wrong for the horrible reverse grid qualifying idea for many reasons that have already been discussed. As an […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Ban on 'quali mode' reduced overtaking at Monza – Hamilton 1 year, 1 month ago
+1! All this race did was force people to see what’s been there all along *if you look for it*. Taking the top 3 teams [of the hybrid era] out of the picture left the midpack as the only thing to watch. This […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, FIA "very confident" quali mode ban can be enforced 1 year, 2 months ago
Yeah! If FE fan boost or anything remotely similar shows up in F1 I’ll find and another use for my time. Things like DRS, questionable tire design directives, single team/driver dominance I can easily live with […]

My thoughts exactly.
IMO If this would have been on the formation lap then I think it still would have been “coaching” since the instructions were to go to the grid rather than to box. Telling him to go to the grid in that state was […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Mercedes reach longest win-less streak of the hybrid turbo era 1 year, 5 months ago
Most of these are the kinds of statistics/records that typically come with the dreaded asterisk.
I still wonder why people think there will be any races this season. The same conditions that resulted in the first round of cancellations will be still present, if not stronger, the rest of the year. Closed […]
