    Martin Brundle was saying that this yearís cars are making more braking Gs letting off the throttle than Sterling Mossís last car made with the brakes. Nutso.

    F1 email announcing F1 TV Access, says that the app will be launching in May.

    Gives a link to a clip of the 1993 European Grand Prix where Senna dominates the field on the first lap; says that all subscribers will get access to historic F1 video archive. I want to setup a TV at my house and play every race on a loop 24/7.

    Holy crap what a race!!! Ricardo’s drive was unbelievable. And it looks like the top 3 teams can compete with each other.

    Amazing race, Ricciardo caugh Ham sleeping, then managed to pull another one on Bottas and do a 1.35.7 at the end... he was on fire.

    That was amazing for sure! All about the right tire and the timing of where on the track they were.

    Lol, "sometimes you just gotta send it!"

    Happy for DannyRic. Verstappen had his chance but Danny is a master and has superb spatial awareness and car control.

    The two "championship contenders" got schooled today.

    Dirty way to win when you have your teammate torpedo Vettel on purpose. Bad precedent.

    What are you talking about? Ric passed Vettel cleanly and Vettel fell off the pace. Then Verstappen and Vettel got together. It had zero influence on the race win. Did you watch the race?

    The safety car rule is how he won it.

    It allowed him to stop for a better tire while the leaders were held up in safety car traffic jam. They would have lost a lot of track position if they came in for fresh rubber. They should plug that into the simulators on Monday.

    Anyhoo, riccardo then had better grip to challenge the leaders. It was predictable and not very exciting.

    When the SC comes out, pitlane should be closed, and then open after the field is lined up behind SC.

    but then they have that only 1 pitcrew per two cars thing. - they could just line up as they entered pitlane, unless you stay out of course, that's a good gamble.



    - disclaimer. I watched the race knowing the result,.. how the fuck is he going to win this.. wait for it.. bang SC debris, there it is. wait no, verstappen is.. oh there we go.

    The safety car indeed changed the outcome of the race, but the race was still exciting to watch. Ricardo passing Hamilton was awesome, goes to show the difference in grip between the new and used tires. I somewhat agree though, the SC should perhaps close the pits but Red Bull was also very sharp to call both cars in. Very cool that Red Bull was able to change the tires on both cars as they did and I like that the fact that Red Bull was on the ball and won the race.

    I thought Verstappen should have had a penalty for passing the Toro Rosso on pit lane, no?
