    Remember Miked Hawthorn driving in a tweed jacket and spotted bow tie?
    Anyway, I am all for a bit of brave colour!
    Is that Hamilton's dog?

    I thought Roscoe died a while back.I'm absolutely astonished that he is allowed to take a dog anywhere near the circuit since mere mortals haven't been allowed such a thing for a very long time.They aren't the sort of things that drivers like to encounter at any sort of speed.

    Agreed, You beat me to it!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    The Daily Telegraph denounced Hamilton as going in for “skulduggery of Schumacher proportions”, but this was just a few days after the brexit media had tried and the “government” had tried to whip up racism against the England football team and failed badly, overall.

    It’s hard to see where the truth lies.

    Verstappen has been weaving in the braking zones his entire career. It's dangerous: it can flip the cars. It's only been more experienced drivers awareness that has avoided a great many accidents. If he's going to give it out, he's also going to have to take it, which he (and Horner) clearly can't. Red Bull (Helmut Marko) have encouraged 'aggressive' driving since struggling with the new engine format and have caused very similar accidents many times. They were running lower pressures earlier this year to get advantage against what Pirelli allowed (why his tyre exploded in Baku).

    Hamilton was running less aero and had the advantage down the straights. With the overspeed he was going to put it up the inside at the end of every straight round that first lap. Hamilton knew that. Verstappen knew that. Toto knew that. Horner knew that. The crowd new that.

    Verstappen has speed and car control but isn't bright enough to win a war. He doesn't see the long game, like when he crashed into that back marker at Brazil. He's going to have to become a wiley old fox to win multiple world championships if he doesn't always have the luxury of the best car to win the odd race or the odd championship. Prost was the brightest guy I ever saw race.

    The comparison to Shumi isn't the same. Shuey did purposefully either block the track (Monaco) or take out Hill to win (he steered into him). He considered that sporting and is to his detriment. Hamilton doesn't race like that. I thought pulling the same move on Leclerc took some balls.

    Continuing to develop this years car to win a championship is likely to cost Red Bull next year. Even if they know they can't win, the more Mercedes can push Red Bull to have to do that this year, the more ahead Mercedes might get ahead in 'development' for next years radically different cars. That's also what's going on beside the Ham v Verstappen show.

    Yes.

    And the Aston Martin fuel story. And Hamilton has long Covid19.

    Bottas taking team orders to protect Hamiltons back a little too seriously.

    Never seen a one car on the grid start before. Better than expected. Alonso still got the gift, if not the car.

    I'm giving up on F1 until there is a realistic lower age limit. The brain can.t properly measure risk until about age 25. It;s scary to see children like Lando Norris hurtle around the track.

    You think it's scary, he probably has another opinion. It's correlated with his talent and his cognitive skills. Perhaps these young guy's have a slight 'data processing" advantage over the more experienced drivers. In other words their lack of experience is compensated by their talent and (cognitive)skills. The older drivers compensate their declining cognitive skills with experience.

    Most of them have been racing in some form or other since they were about seven.Then there is the continuing effort to make the cars safer which boosts the driver's sense of invulnerability.It seems to be working quite well in spite of the efforts to explore the limits.

    The televising of today's race managed to convey something of the atmosphere and the longed for home win was very popular.I haven't checked but it could be closer to me than the British GP.

    It hasn't got bigger at the same rate as the cars have grown.This image circulated quite widely a while back and the older cars are at the right.The longest Mercedes to wear the three pointed star is the current steed of messrs Bottas and Hamilton.

    I think I stopped watching somewhere around the seventh car from the left.
    Watching Senna at San Marino took all the enjoyment out of it for me.
