    Two articles of interest this morning.

    Not cool...don't want to see McLaren with a Honda engine next year, probably mean Alonso is also gone if that's the case.

    It's a shame to see Alonso like this, so much talent and experience. It was really nice to see him push limits in Q1 squeezing in a good time with the tires

    And this:
    http://www.skysports.com/f1/news/124...t-seasons-cars

    F1 will introduce the controversial Halo cockpit protection device onto cars for the 2018 season, the FIA has announced.



    The sport's governing body revealed the surprise move after a meeting of F1's Strategy Group on Wednesday, at which all 10 teams were represented for the first time.
    However, Autosport has claimed that the majority of teams voted against the Halo at the meeting, with the FIA pushing it through on safety grounds.

    An FIA statement read: "Following the unanimous agreement of the Strategy Group, in July 2016, to introduce additional frontal protection for Formula 1 and the repeated support from the drivers, the FIA confirms the introduction of the Halo for 2018.


    "With the support of the teams, certain features of its design will be further enhanced.

    This rule was inevitable and unfortunately will lead to close cockpits like these. I like it ( I think)

    Watching F1 Live from Sky Sports. Historical and current F1 cars on the streets of London, uber cool! Imagine the sound of the V12s echoing off the buildings... wow. Wished we had this kind of F1 coverage on this side of the pond.

    Yeah Liberty media is stepping up the game.

    Funny comments I heard from some of the F1 pundits, wondering where the money comes from for these events? It's called PROMOTION, these free to public events will bring in new fans in the future -- investment into the sport instead of just trying to milk everyone for everything.

    I do agree, I want an open cockpit. Don't you find that better than the Halo though?
    BTW with that window they will need AC.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Not a bad race!

    - Not much passing at all though.
    - Bonehead move by VER that ruined any good result from Red Bull.
    - Honourable switch back from Hamilton, was surprised, kudos to him.
    - Great race by Alonso and even pulled off fastest lap. Double points for McLaren.
    - DiResta did okay despite his lack of running in a 2017 car, but still 20 secs behind his rookie teammate. Horrible race for Williams today.

    I think HAM has clued in the BOT can be an ally rather than a threat. Play nice and it may pay off later.
    Similarly for VET and RAI.
    VER took a chance...didn't have enough grip...too bad his teammate was in the way. I think those guys are going to need couples therapy to make it to the end of the season.

    My other car is 10 motorcycles that don't start
