It was boring as f
There was a little first lap chaos, good amount of overtakes, late action in the top 6, strategy mishaps (lol Aston). Boring as f is a bit harsh.
It’s GK…he probably lost money which lead him to that view.
Expected Max to push Bottas a least a little bit. Dont think he ever even made it into DRS range
I put on a replay and the only part that made me pay attention was lap 1 and then Perez holding off Hamilton for that battle.
Great drive by Checo today. Huge to hold off Lewis, then bring home a podium
Who knew Bottas could drive on a wet track.
That race sucked. It's okay to be critical
The race had no crashes or safety cars so the simpletons who only like the spectacle of a wreck think it sucked.
That's my critique of the situation. I was told it's ok to be critical.
Go to bed
Look, it was the conditions and guys couldn't push out there. You just aren't going to get a good race when that's the case. That's okay.
I enjoyed the short checo and Lewis battle
So if that’s ok, why are folks complaining? A bunch of the tracks are set up for “boring” races I guess.
What's wrong with complaining? I'll complain and tune in again next time hoping for better conditions for racing.
You seem to say it’s ok to complain about a boring, but then say that the race was set up to be boring. Seems counter of what your original point was.
If it was set up to be boring, how can anyone really complain about it being exactly that.
When did I say anything about the set up? They don't choose the conditions.
unless I’m misunderstanding, right here.
I'm not seeing how those are mutually exclusive
Anyways I can't keep going on and on, it's killing my likes to post ratio
I really wasn’t bitching that much I just said I found the race boring
lots of sporting events can be boring
There was .2 gap between the two cars in race pace going into the race. The battle was always if Bottas did a Bottas and got behind the Ferrari and Redbull. It never really played out like that.
agrreed the race was far from boring. But it were comparing it to the last race I guess I can see the case but it’s not a take I would have coming out of this. Monaco is ducking boring…
I enjoyed the race personally. There was the threat of strategy changes at really any point.
Seb took a risk and went on the mediums and looked like a baby deer. Had that worked it would have been real fascinating to see who stuck on the inters vs switching over. The dry line being a car widths wide. It woulda made for some very interesting overtake chances on slicks with a wet track.
I would imagine at Andretti would want to make an announcement in the very near term if they deal really is at the finish line. So they can Make a big deal of it at Austin.
I personally love the idea of a second American team, and what makes Andretti different from Haas is that the former is involved in all motor sports for the most part. Not just NASCAR like Haas is. I’d expect them to be a decent mid-field team.
I don't know much of anything about Andretti and the Andretti family but I assume it is Mario Andretti? Was he not born and raised in Italy? The talk of them being an American company confuses me.
ABOUT THE TEAM
With a name like Andretti, expectations are high when you enter the world of racing. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, and led by racing legend Michael Andretti, the Andretti Autosport team fields multiple entries in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires Championship and the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship LMP3 division.
Also under the Andretti racing umbrella are its Andretti Formula E program competing in the ABB FIA Formula-E Championship. Additionally, the team competes as Walkinshaw Andretti United in the Australian Supercars category through a partnership with Walkinshaw Racing and United Autosports and is set to field an entry in the new Extreme E championship via Andretti United Extreme E.
The Global racing enterprise boasts over 200 total race wins, four IndyCar Series championships, four Indy Lights titles, one Indy Pro 2000 and one USF2000 championship, a Silver Class GT4 championship and has captured victory five times at the famed Indianapolis 500-Mile Race.
I’d be on the Colton Herta bandwagon day 1.
ill still root for lando/mclaren
Not F1 but figured this thread would appreciate
Been to IMSA and vintage there. Cool track/venue.
Connect a few of those together and he'd go tricky and get unlimited turbo boost
Want that Ricciardo jersey
Jerseys are cool.
what’s up with Danny’s face lol
Dolphins fans could get away with it with those colors plus the block M on the sleeve.
Russia finally surrendering?
Not pairing Canada with the earlier US GP is interesting... That's a shit ton of traveling for those teams.
There were rumors that F1 was not going to renew the Austin race (this year is the last year of original 10 year agreement) because the city/state was balking at the ~$25M they pay F1 to host. Guess they got that sorted out
there is an asterisk next to Austin
To be replaced by [middle eastern dictatorship here]
Oh damn, didn't even notice that
I question that considering they'd make way, way more than that in simply ticket sales alone. In 2019 the three day attendance was 286,000. I understand that many of those attendees would have purchased a single 3 day pass but still, if you say $100/ticket average (which would be low) that already equals $28.6 million. Add on profits from parking and concessions and that's millions more. Plus the overall economic impact of all the hotels and restaurants that get a boost.
Yea but if they pay less than $25mil, they can make even more money! #capitalism
We’re trying to keep foreigners out here in the Lone Star State
Sure, but dropping out all together is what I was referring to
They won’t. Way to much money involved and to be made.
Plus haven’t they paired the weekend with a major concert Sunday night? I think one year they had Taylor Swift performing.
