In some ways this is more farcical than the 2005 US GP. Or close to it at least. And I didn’t think that was something we’d ever see again in the sport.

I had to do a double take then to make sure it wasn’t April 1st.
I remember watching that Spa 2012 race start live, was really scary. Alonso definitely dodged a bullet that day.
I know they were totally different circumstances, but I actually had a flashback to another Williams driver from 9 years ago when I saw Russel do this in the race (for anyone that doesn’t remember or never saw, […]
I don’t think RBR asked AT to do that, it was just more down to the position Gasly was in where he had nothing to lose by going for it (unless they completely messed up his pit stop). Remember, AT are in a very […]

Seems like a slam dunk DQ, has a driver in this situation ever not been DQ’d? Not even sure why they are summoning him to stewards, what can he/the team say to avoid being penalised?
Toto said the same thing in his interview with Sky just before that.
Great race, loved the Alonso vs Hamilton segment towards the end, shame Alonso locked up but regardless he probably prevented Hamilton from winning and kept the win for Alpine. Don’t think many other drivers […]

As frustrated as some people might be with the end, I think Merc had a much quicker car today so Red Bull wouldn’t have been able to get pole regardless. And Red Bull kind of messed up anyway by sending Max out […]

I was convinced Alfa were going to do a double driver change for 2021, but they ended up keeping both of them. Really bad decision I felt, just didn’t really make any sense because neither driver has any long […]

wow that’s crazy, I knew those guys were going slow but didn’t realise how slow. barely moving for nearly a minute. FIA should maybe change the ‘slow lap’ required time to look at sectors instead, that way you […]
Was ok, at least we didn’t get any artificial excitement from safety cars/red flags. Perez and Bottas was interesting to follow towards the end, some nice racing in the midfield as well to make up for the lack of […]
80% chance of rain during the race at time of writing, so that could be interesting if it happens.
Great race, this was the first race for a while I was thinking of skipping and not watching live due to how boring the previous French GPs have been, but I’m glad I decided to watch it in the end. Probably best […]

I think both Max and Stroll were lucky they didn’t have anyone close behind them at the time of their tyre failures…those sort of random tyre blow ups on a straight could easily have resulted in them being […]

Merc race pace seemed strong enough so should be competitive for Sunday even if they don’t get pole on Saturday.
