What did he do now
Didn’t get out of Hamilton’s way. Toto was not pleased.
Hahaha of course
Trying to watch villa and F1 at th same time
I’m barely awake, was it not Bottas that Maz impeded?
Lew going with the double pit.
Damn, Merc with the 2nd pit stop
Ok less boring now
This has to be Hamilton’s. He’s burning this track up.
Then he pits
Max just racing for second, doesn’t want to lose it to Bottas.
I’m no expert, but it seems really dumb that Red Bull tried to ride it out on those tires
Mazepin only 40 seconds behind mick
Max fastest lap. For now.
Was mazepin 3 laps behind lewis?
Good race for Ricciardo.
They need to cut that track.
money talks though
Agreed. Although that was the best Spanish GP in a while; mostly due to Mercedes deciding to do a two stop strategy.
Everyone is bitching about Red Bull’s strategy saying that they should’ve brought Max in after Lewis’s second stop. It probably was the better option, but there was no guarantee that Max was going to win. It still would’ve been the same result; two Mercedes against Max.
Before Lewis' second pit, it was still Lewis always enabling DRS down the straight and Max only maintaining an edge by re-establishing a ~1 sec lead through the turns. In this kind of chase, it seems almost better to be in second so you can use that slipstream and DRS.
If this track were decent it would be the best place to travel for a race. Too bad
Drs is kind of stupid tbh
If they didn’t have it you be saying race is too boring there’s no passing
That race was boring
Fix the aero
Well looks like his engine was down on power because it was going to break down!!!
not sure why they didn’t do an engine swap knowing it was likely to happen.
This track is notorious for being a train show. Just following the leader. It really is a poor track for action.
You rarely see glimpses of F1 drivers going balls to the wall all out for an entire race. Tire allocation, and compound structure has caused nearly every race to be about tire management.
Today was a rare day to see someone push a F1 car all out for the entire race. Was awesome to watch. Last time I can remember someone doing this was on this very track during Alonso’s final season at Ferrari. That dude may have pitted twice or three times and still won the race with ease. Was also super fun to watch that day.
Aero and a narrow track is a bad combo.
Next year's regulations appear to be addressing the right things. The return of proper ground effect for the cars will theoretically significantly reduce the effects of dirty air, which should really improve the ability for these cars to overtake.
Ferrari has been putting a ton of resources into the 2022 car, with the expectation of returning to contending for race wins. Mercedes is just ridiculously good at all aspects so I'm sure they'll be up there too, and Red Bull has historically been a very good chassis/aero team, so hopefully we can have a proper 3-way fight for the title.
I'm not writing off 2021 WDC/WCC yet, but Merc seems to have ironed out a lot of their issues. At least the battle for 3rd should be interesting with Ferrari and McLaren the best of the rest.
Turkey canceled. French GP moved up a week to June 20th and a second Austria race has been added
That car looks like a pharma ad
I think that's the point
Monaco still a go?!
according to the F1 site.. yes
Why wouldn’t it be?
Turkey is off because it was listed at a “red flag covid zone” by the UK government, and with a vast majority of each team made up of UK citizens. Getting in and out was looking to be a challenge. Turkey ask to trade weeks with Baku, but they said no because they’re hosting the UEFA final or something on the weekend turkey wanted to trade.
I think a second Austrian can be fun, especially considering the potential for conditions to play a factor like last year.
PSG thread icon?
No Monaco.. So idk..
If we could just get an F1 logo that would be fantastic
and a fan of icon
After watching the Formula 1 show on Netflix I’m now hooked. For Monaco this weekend what channel will it be on and what time live?
Qualifying Saturday 8am central on espn2 and the race is Sunday at 8am on espn2
Sunday morning on one of the ESPNs
Definitely tune in for qualifying. Given the nature of the Monaco track, it is typically very hard to overtake, so qualifying has extra importance this weekend.
