    Wow, McLaren ahead of Red Bull and ALO 4th!

    Better bring the updates quick!

    Think Mercedes is on the back foot already, they need to recover at the next race.

    Either way it is shaping up to be a good championship, not a runaway from one team.

    Just watching the replay... what's with the sparks that spit up on braking?

    They look like holiday sparklers.

    Too early to say, but Mercedes looks fragile this year. The Ferrari looked so planted and it’s balance was a large factor in Vettel being able to manage his worn tires for the final 10 laps. That, and his ability to manage the deployment of his battery to counter Bottas’ DRS-aided charge.

    And that Torro Rosso! The commentators spent so much time talking about Hamilton and they almost totally neglected Gasly’s drive. His placing was based on merit.

    Agree on Gasly. And Hartley drove a heck of a race too.

    Puts pressure on Danny Ric that he’s replaceable at RBR. Hope the Ferrari seat comes through.

    Someone's got to be at the rear of the pack... but yeah, seems pointless. If they don't have prospects of moving up, they should move out.

    Somewhat related. LeMans cars are crazy fast too.

    Modified title-winning Porsche WEC LMP1 car beats Spa F1 lap record


    Porsche's 919 Hybrid LMP1 car has broken the unofficial lap record of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, beating Lewis Hamilton's pole position time for last year's Formula 1 race.

    World Endurance champion Neel Jani was at the wheel of a modified 919 Hybrid 'Evo' on Monday, and recorded a lap of 1m41.770s around the Belgian Grand Prix venue.
    That compares to Hamilton's 2017 F1 pole time of 1m42.553s, which is the official fastest time set by a car around the cirrent 4.352-mile configuration.

    Porsche is embarking on a 'world tour' with is now-retired LMP1 car this year following its withdrawal from the WEC's top division, and has made numerous changes to the 919 in a bid to demonstrate what the car is capable of free of its usual restrictions.

    "This additional success is the result of the LMP team's hard work and a proud day for the engineers," said Porsche LMP1 boss Andreas Seidl.
    "One can only congratulate Neel and the entire crew for achieving it.
    "All six 2017 LMP1 drivers contributed to the project. It was our target to show the Porsche 919 Hybrid's abilities when we ease the restrictions that came from the WEC regulations."

    Among the changes made to the 919 Evo are an enlarged front diffuser and rear wing, the addition of DRS at the front and rear, and considerably more power.

    Jani registered a top speed of 223mph thanks to the 2.0-litre V4 engine being tuned to produce around 720bhp - compared to the 500bhp it had previously under restrictive LMP1 fuel flow regulations.

    The hybrid system was also tweaked to deliver an additional 40bhp compared to the 2017 version.
    "The 919 Evo is brutally impressive," said Jani. "It is definitely the fastest car I ever drove.
    "The grip level is at a fully new dimension for me, I couldn't imagine this amount beforehand.
    "The speed on which everything happens on a single lap with the 919 Evo is that fast that the demand on reaction speed is very different to what I was used to in the WEC.
    "We are not only faster than the F1 pole from 2017. Today's lap was 12 seconds faster compared to our WEC pole position from last year."

    The 919 Evo will next be in action ahead of the Nurburgring 24 Hours in May, with further runs planned at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, at Brands Hatch in September and at Laguna Seca in October.

    I don't want to discount the speed of that things, that's very, very fast, but I'm now wondering how quick an unrestricted, modified F1 car would go around the track, then again, unrestricted would no longer technically be F1.

    Just like this isn't an lmp car anymore....

    Pretty sure tho that an unlimited clean sheet design "f1" car would be limited by the meatsack behind the wheel. Hell, any unrestricted clean sheet design probably would with today's technology.
