    McLaren needs to talk Gulf into being main sponsor again. That livery is just the best.

    The only thing the 2 sports have in common is rich people tend to like both. That's it.

    New cars won't be enough to make this an actual race. Monaco will forever be decided in qualifying, reliability, and a little bit of pit strategy/luck.

    His image was likely helped by being the more likeable of the two with Rosberg. Then from there everything has been easy.

    Even though the race sucks I still love watching/listening to cars drive in that setting. Usually this race falls under Memorial Day weekend so it's good to have on in the background and not have to be glued to it.

    Read that Monaco is the one race in the calendar where a local production crew works the race. Some sort of perk for the Kings cousin or something. There’s a different British feed out there that ripped into the crew just after that cut to replay.

    Should close that 2 second gap within 5 holes and then have a chance for a pass.

    To whoever posted the Mercedes debrief videos in this thread, thanks. They continue to fascinate me.

    Lot of good stuff in this one from Monaco, call it excuse making or what have you, but the bit about Verstappen maintaining a certain gap to eliminate pit windows for others (subsequently helping enable Perez's overcut) was really fascinating. Whether that's revisionist propaganda or a strategic stroke of genius from RB I suppose we'll never know, but it was certainly interesting to hear. (relevant part starts around 2:45)

    Hope Baku is interesting but I'm thinking it's going to be a standard Merc 1-2 finish. Could be an interesting fight in the midfield though.

    There’s an FIA tier 1 race track at Indy as well. One they just renovated too so it only uses the front straight

    Indy and F1 have said they haven’t spoken yet about going there this year.

    I wonder if Brazil is another race that might be up in the air as well. So two in Austin make the most sense to cover that contingency (especially considering they’ll be able to do a full house) If they’re looking to do something separate than that then I personally think the sport could really benefit from a successful return to Indy.
