Seriously. After his time at the team you would think they would treat him with more respect. It's not like he is a crap driver. Most teams would kill to have him in their car.

RB nailed the strat with getting Max through Q2 on the hard tire. I was surprised when so many opted for the soft, I figured everyone would try to get through on the medium. It is rare to see the overcut work out.

Was quite surprised as well no other top team/driver tried that. Figured this was going to be a strategy game with no one trusting tires.

Great season for the fans this is becoming.

On a lighter note lance has suggested to dad he would donate his prize possession to get the car parts to conform with those required by the rules.

Really Ferrari? Going to throw your name into the hat on the RP appeal?

Lets not forget fuel flow gate, and your dual battery pack.

So the 2015 winner of the 24 hr Le Mans admits to be in talks with 2 F1 teams.
Talk about a career revival all due to this C19 thing if it can happen for him.

Makes for strong rumours Kimi will retire…

Meh, not much of a revival. Alfa has 2 points right now to Haas' 1 point and Williams 0 points, I'm sure he could've been scrapping at the back of the grid this year if he hadn't turned his nose up last year at driving for the back markers or taking a one year deal with Renault that was on the table. Interesting comment by Vasseur about their previous relationship, might've had something to do with his confidence in returning to F1 if they had that conversation of 'I will replace Kimi with you if you want it'

Just a list, they tried.
Gotto make it what you want.

Just like reading the click baits about the 10 best cars,
The ten best universities,
The 10 best Beers…

How come my best drivers don’t even make it?

Always changing.

The whole premise of how they came up with the results is BS. Heikki is rated so highly because he did ok against Hamilton, and then did well against a past-it Trulli who was good in qualifying before, and suddenly he is the 8th fastest driver since 1983? Get outta here!

Yeah why is Prost #20. It seems like the data is skewed against those who had a lot of good teammates. Prost was only teammates with the likes of Senna, Mansell, Lauda.

Whats going on here ?
What will Ferrari do , did they have the same agenda?

"the controversy of the start of this season should be put behind us".

Going by the overwhelming amount of comments here over the past few days about that Spa race, we must agree that it was a great parade. Even Max was bored that he had nothing to do but follow.

Notable sparks from Daniel , Gasly and Kimi for passing Ferrari.

More fun coming this weekend at Monza!

I haven't gotten to watch it yet since I have the basic subscription. It looks like a snooze fest from the highlights, I will watch it tonight. Great result from Danny though, and that Gasly pass through Eau Rouge was awesome. Was really bummed for Sainz, his luck this year is terrible. How come every time a Spaniard goes to Ferrari they suck?

That Bahrain outer circuit looks interesting.
