I actually think his decision to move to Aston Martin makes sense. But you have to consider it under the context that he was not going to be offered a drive with a top 3 team. For the last decade at least, […]
@todfod Their strategy was almost as if it was a Monaco race – just ensure you gain track position over your rivals after the final round of stops and you win. Under those circumstances, covering off Verstappen […]
Not so surprising. A hit rate of 3.5% and 22 races per season means there is a 77% chance that there will be at least 1 race where one wins from P10 or beyond. (Not sure if probabilities are additive […]
@bakano True, it was a bit of a reach. But unless there’s going to be a Summer Break stats and facts article this seemed the best chance.
At 1 hour and 49 minutes, Esteban Ocon and Oscar Piastri became the shortest lived official driver pairing in F1 history.

@jerejj My interpretation of this, which could be wrong, is that the reason Gasly’s components were replaced “without the approval of the FIA delegate” is because he had exceeded the component allocations for t […]

@chrischrill Alpine contract talks:
Alonso: “I’ve signed for Aston Martin.”
I wonder what they discussed for the other 9 minutes 50 seconds.
Keith Campbell commented on the post, "McLaren and Alpine are just too fast for us" – Gasly 1 week, 5 days ago
@jerejj Sky commentary said Gasly got a pitlane start because he exceeded his power unit components for the year while the RB cars were still within their limit.
@eurobrun Not sure of the context and if this 50% is an estimate or provisional figure, but there can also be different classes of shares available. Even if ownership is 50/50 in terms of capital, it’s likely that […]
It depends. If it was as Seb said and Lance actually hit the brakes on or after the apex then that’s a dangerous move and if it resulted in contact then definitely worthy of a penalty. You aren’t allowed to brake […]

So, any of you guys willing to take a cabinet position?
I get your point. But by the same logic – a grand prix itself is just a meaningless expense for 50% of the grid. The teams at the back still for the most part drive and race till the end even if the chance of […]
@sjaakfoo This is true but what Binotto says here is they were concerned Hamilton would stay out on nearly new hards and be a threat to their win. What they did took this option away from him.
However, given […]
Keith Campbell commented on the post, Double stacking fears behind call not to pit Leclerc, says Binotto 1 month, 1 week ago
The only somewhat valid concern – which is something that Binotto didn’t mention here so maybe wasn’t considered – was that pitting both Ferrari’s would mean Hamilton could stay out on relatively fresh hards and […]

@frood19 I think booing for specific instances of bad sportsmanship, such as Austria 2002 in the CoTD example is fine. You’re allowed to do that as a protest against certain behaviours. What I strongly dislike is […]

It won’t be the complete team principal experience until you can take the race director out to dinner and then petition him for conveniently timed safety cars.
