Sad news indeed. Thanks for letting us know about his passing gadjo_dilo , and I'm sure that it has left a void for you. I'm glad that his family allowed you to let us know, and if you interact...
Similar to Taz, I rate Ocon as a pretty good driver.
But like him or not, Fernando has huge talent and a hefty mental game. Depending on how they can change the car to his liking, I expect that...
I managed to avoid all spoilers, and just watched the race split between yesterday and tonight.
Crazy race all around. With all the offs and big crashes, it made it interesting, and everyone came...

Though the front of the pack was predictable from lights out to podium, just about everything after that wasn't.
Great showing by the Renaults, and it seems like Ricciardo had big pace left in his...

Well, RB and Max threw a wrench in the Merc plan, and it worked. Lewis charged hard at the end, but it was too late in the game to recover. In hindsight if they had used that strategy for Bottas he...

Bottas is doing a better job the last season or so, he is just in a bad situation being paired (and thus compared) to Lewis. It's a similar situation to whoever is driving with Max right now. A...
A top four finish for me after my season start is a welcome change. But they will be rare unless Merc falters or RB really ups the game. But then again I knew that when I made my picks, so I dug my...
Holy crap, I actually ended up with a 7th place finish. Too many Merc/Merc combinations out there!
It seems to be a strange situation really. I think they would have probably called a penalty if he was limping it to the start with others passing or close behind, but as it was only Max was closing...
Well at least there is an active thread about the qually today! :laugh:
Overall no big surprises, and Merc continue to dominate. I'm not sure I can agree with Ferrari getting away with Leclerc's...
Kind of a boring race overall, but some on track action that was at least interesting at times.
Sainz and Leclerc were really clean again, they will make a great pairing.
Those pink Mercs seem...
Lewis in control at the front from qually to race finish.
Except for that, everything got pretty wild.
Leclerc pulled a bonehead, but owned it the best he could. I'm sure his afternoon talk...
Well well. Alonso retuning to Renault. About as likely as Kimi returning to Ferrari. But that happened too.
I guess we will see what he still has. It's almost a shame Daniel will be gone when...
It's weird having race weekends again. But I'm glad we have something to watch and I hope things keep switching up to keep us on our toes!
Well just when I thought that race might end up boring, it all turned around in a big way.
Sucks to be Max, and my FGP is toast being I picked RB as my primary team. But he might have had a shot...

Thanks for keeping this alive!

I really don't think Vettel will be considered by the top teams, as they have solid driver lineups. And I somewhat doubt he would consider a Renault level team, as his ego seems to remain at a...
I think the world is a bit stir crazy, and we all want all this mess to end sooner rather than later. Most of us want to get back to work, social events, sports, and Formula 1. But we are walking...

Well that won't stop us from speculating that Seb would be tossed to the curb to make room for Lance to race with Charles.
Or will Lance race with Lewis, and Seb and Charles go to Merc?
Well written piece Nitrodaze.
What the future holds we don't know, and now we have the COVID-19 and another big wrench in the picture.
And thanks for that photo of Massa on the podium. ...

Who saw this coming?
The new regs could certainly shake things up, as all the teams will be finding the balance and handling characteristics from essentially scratch again. I suspect the cooling issues will also be all...

Well that sucks. Being that we have time on our hands, do we try to find another pickems type thing?
The big thing that the new regs will help with is following and attacking. The wake behind the current winged cars is just a massive plume of dirty air. The ground effect cars will cut this down...
In F1, current downforce has a lot to do with the flow over the front of the car. Since this flow is grossly disturbed when a car lifts off the ground, all aero goes to crap regardless once a car...
