Excited to see Danny Ric send it in a Merc powered Mclaren. Hopefully they were able to package it in the car effectively.

F1 Should be good with a few driver changes.

RIC sure looks happy with his new Merc powered Pumpkin.



Still waiting if my local race will allow spectators or not.
My last year tickets never got refunded yet …

The new Alpine has a lot of top weight, which makes me worried. Hopefully they've figured something out with keeping the bottom clean for air flow and it will offset the higher center of gravity.

I just hope some of teams have closed the gap to Mercedes, nothing against Mercedes they have a great team, I would just like to see more competition in the races. Gets boring knowing every race, your watching the race for 4th because 1st 2nd and 3rd are already decided 75% of the time.

Even if they are much in front of the pack doesn’t mean there is no quality racing happening at the back of the pack.
Just makes your appreciation of the ones where the second group of drivers win.
Sometimes wonder If HAM is as satisfied expecting winning pretty much everything compared to when
NOR RIC GAS RUS STR PER have a great day many cars behind the leaders.

Sometimes we have to look at the bigger picture to enjoy the spectacle.
When I go to races I find myself not really consumed by following the Big boys in the lead but what’s
going on around me and the ones having a bad day on the track are the ones that can generate the most attention.
Once attended a race where a Viper owner was the fastest car there but just could not hold it in,
many spectacular spin-offs and incredible passing to get back to first, but never won that one.
I don’t remember what car won it was unimportant due to that crazy man.

With the cars mostly remaining the same until 2022, it will almost certainly be Merc out in front and RB well ahead of the rest of the field.

I can't wait to see the midfield battles though. Ferrari, Aston Martin, Renault, McLaren should be pretty close in terms of performance. That means we'll have Ric, Alonso, Lando, Leclerc, Sainz fighting it out hard at every race.

The weekend testing is over, 2 more weeks to wait for the first race.

The new guys did well I find and looked consistent.

Perrez had his RB engine cover fly off and shatter spectacularly after
getting out of a Williams slipstream on Saturday.
Wonder if there is a witch hunt trying to find out who did the install…

Nice getting a looky at the new Liveries.

During the weekend someone referred Mercedes floor as a pasta floor (lasagne)



Well the wavy front has that look...

That must be a concept.
The real car has Longhorns on the front and spinners.
