I am excited to see what kind of racing Qatar brings us. I love watching MotoGP race there.

Just because HAM did not have a podium place I declare this a good race.

Also this is a Thanksgiving weekend up north here and Turkey (and the cranberries) is always good!

I really enjoyed the Perez-Ham dual and surely Checo did.

ALO for the first few laps looked like he was practicing in some bumpercar game.

Car-loss Sainz showed some aggressive moves and got lucky that they paid off.

What a disaster for VET putting on slicks, reminded me of driving in our first winter snowfall where half the cars are still on summers and in the ditch.

Congrats to BOT & VER at managing their race/Tires.

I would not want to be a HAM support crew today; he was not a happy green tennis ball today after loosing too many positions on the questionable tire change his team decided.

According to Toto's post race interviews the team had it right. Lewis was losing too much time on those worn out inters. He would have lost places or worse. He may have crashed out when the tires let go altogether.

I missed the team perspective(Toto) on the tire change.
HAM seemed to have second guessed his team after the pit but came in when asked to box.
I did see his tires were quire slicks when they did the pit stop.
He may see this as damage control later on in debrief.

Yeah, Leclerc was looking good until the tires just gave up and he had to pit. If Hamilton had a similar incident, then pitted, or even tried to keep going, he would have been quite a bit further behind in the championship.

Did not know of this Scuderia model… seems to have been around in some form since 2010 ?

Charlie looks like he’s riding with 2 Bobble heads in the back.

I like the colour they picked out … bellissimo

23 races already lined up for next year, some of those races are only a week and continent apart!

While watching the Qualifying I saw some tire marks that did not look like they were made by an F1 car, someone had put down a nice imprint doing double donuts for the fans, 4 hrs later I found out who that cowboy was…

I quite like the v8 sound and squeaky brakes as well.

Yep, I saw those same marks and learned as you did. You gotta luv a guy who enjoys himself that much,eh!
Most fun racing I ever had was flogging the snot out of the Camaro Cup cars the school had. Not to be confused with the Player's Cup cars that were showroom stockish with full interiors and street legal. No, these cars were purpose built track machines with loud V8's running open race exhaust, 5 speeds, big brakes, race suspension and no interior. Well except for one racing bucket and one fixed, standard bucket seat.
I played Danny Ric sans the doughnuts.

1st, What a nail biter that COTA race was.




Im exited for you FL fans!

Im tempted to do a road trip in the next few years to check it out if it’s a success next year. It would get me out of my long cold winter depression.


If you can, try to make a long weekend out of it.

Thursday they may have a FREE open pit lane as they do up north here, it’s a perfect time to peek close up at F1 cars & the support program cars and if your lucky spot your F1 heroes walking around for pr appearances…

I usually alternate with general admission tickets to be able to walk around or a different stand locations every other year for my home race. I do find sitting in one place a bit boring in the long run(and too easy to drink too much beer) but than again Im Photo oriented and I just need to vary my view during the day.

Just to clarify what a general admission view can get me around here:

From Montreal 2019

Support race:



Max:



Bottas:



Future F1 fan or Mech on the open house thursday:

This seems wrong.

edit: as in a wrong way of conducting business, or someone screwed up.

Depends on how long the list was.
I'm guessing they didn't set a limit to how many tickets someone could buy.
