    Hamilton in Mercedes. There might be a couple of others to notice.

    Hardly noticed last years effort and find it increasingly irrelevent.

    The FP2 session had four different makes in the first four places....

    We might get real races.

    In terms of?

    Already matched the title record (7) poles? pole positions, having qualified first on 98 occasions. Michael Schumacher is second with 68 pole positions.

    Don't get me wrong, Hamilton is a great driver, no question. But he is also racing in a whole other era these last 14 or 15 years. Had his career not been cut short after 10 short years and were he able to race in some of the modern cars with the significant increase in safety, who knows what he might have been able to accomplish.

    I am of course talking about my boy Ayrton Senna https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayrton_Senna

    Always makes the list of the 10 greatest F1 drivers of all time, often holding the #1 position. Sure LH has more wins, but for pure style and sheer bravado. . . he is my all time favorite driver. Lauda and Schumacher are in there as well, but Ayrton is special.

    It appears that Honda have worked really hard to ensure that their final official season is a successful one.It also seems that Williams may not be condemned to be a fair bit slower than all the others-Haas seem to be destined for that and have already announced that there will be no upgrades this year.I like the Aston-Martin paint job but hadn't expected them to be so far from the front.I wouldn't bet on Alonso or Vettel seeing the season out.

    My only knowledge of F1 is from the Netflix docs. In four episodes, Lewis has been sanctioned twice. Once for entering the track from the wrong spot and once for entering the pits when pit road was closed. Both were obvious violations, but it seems (or was edited to seem) that he just didn’t care.

    It looked like a good race from the highlights:

    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    in other news, for 2022 we will see the return of ground effects and the possible end of drs

    ground effects are to be highly regulated of course and we will see the end of, temporarily at least, barge boards, fences, endates, and attached spoilers

    i'm not understanding the mini front wheel fenders, is their purpose to clean up airflow?

    They have got a bit busy in some areas.



    Not to mention the sheer size of the things.The longest car with a Mercedes badge is the F1 car.Close to 12 foot wheelbase.
