    You were right! Max on the pole. Albon with his highest qualifying position ever.

    Should be a really interesting race. No Merc qualifying in the top 3 is rare. Still, Lewis behind both Ferraris, trying to get on the podium should be good to watch. Also, that track has a really long straight so Ferrari trying to get past Max on that could be interesting.

    Vettel made a cluster of the start. Completely squeezed Hamilton off the track.

    Wish Max hadn't cut the tire. He might have made the whole thing a lot more interesting.

    Lewis has had the benefit of a top car through this run with Mercedes, but lap one this week shows why he's the best driver. He's won championships by keeping his car out of harm's way where other drivers wreck.

    Everyone oohs and aahs at Max and the like and their overtaking moves, but one one 4 times they end up out of the race. Ever since the year where Lewis and Nico kept crashing, his calculus of when to push and when to give a guy room has been what's won him these titles as much as anything else.

    Strategic and calculated is boring as fuck but it will win 9 times out of 10.

    Really interesting proposed layout for the Miami GP in 2021. Hopefully this race gets final approval and is early in the year.

    In addition to. At least for two years I believe. I think Austin is under contract through 2022. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Miami is the perfect American city for an F1 stop. Hot ass chicks, yachts, stupid money. I really hope that tracks location is beach side.

    It’s ok... multiple super long straights might lead to lots of overtaking.

    I'm sure they have figured out how to handle this, but couldn't they just hide pnl on the engine supply side which gets spread across the customer teams?

    Now that was a race!! One of the best ones I've seen while actually following F1 closely.

    I don't have anything against Ferrari and actually like both their drivers but did chuckle at Seb knocking both of them out.

    Ferrari better get its shit in order for next year. Because Seb thinking he’s the #1 ain’t it.

    I was blown away by Seb. He was going to keep the position. He came over way too early and he knows it. No way Ferrari can allow him to be #1 driver net year.

    Next year is such a waste season. All changes come the following year. Curious how much money teams are really spending on 2020 vs 2021

    In a way it could make for good racing as there is diminishing returns on development gives us a level playing field.

    He was the highlight of the first season. I’m almost convinced they kept the driver lineup so he could provide the entertainment for this documentary series.

    I think they were so lost with the car that they thought it was pointless to change the drivers.

    They were the 4th or 5th best in qualifying but 9th in race pace.
