    Guessing they'd announce such a thing first, if that were the case, before announcing drivers

    This might be old news but according to an article on The Athletic, Max isn’t participated in the Netflix show because he doesn’t like how he has been portrayed.

    Is it just ICE? I think that's only a 5 place grid penalty if so.

    CC_Nole Well-Known Member

    Yes, just the ICE and the penalty drops from 10 place grid penalty to just a 5 place penalty. Bottas should still be on for a podium.

    Yeah - you never want to put too much stock in FP1 but Merc looks extremely rapid out there.

    Anything can happen but I think Mercedes feel Perez isn’t good enough to have Red Bull compete for the WCC (even with grid penalties for Bottas) and so they are just using Bottas as a guinea pig for Hamilton.

    Hard to cover up the fact he's an arrogant entitled little asshole... I get he's a gifted driver and maybe the next great one and I guess a ton of his popularity is based on that reason alone but he's such an unlikeable person.

    I agree with parts of this sentiment, but this is taking it to 11 where it probably should be dialed back to a 6 or 7

    From a broadcast viewing standpoint, it's so much better when F1 Grand Prix's are anywhere other than North or South America. One of the small things that I've grown to love about F1 is waking up on a Saturday and Sunday and there being live racing on immediately. Especially during football season.

    I'm excited af for COTA this weekend and it's a great track but I just wish quali and the race weren't on at the same time as football.

    If I were to handpick 5 cars that I preferred would be out in Q1, it would be exactly the 5 that didn't make it so that's good!

    $12, and the beer lines suck. I think they have staffing issues like most places these days.

    Saw 21 Pilots last night, went to a snooty after party last night, and Billy Joel tonight. I’m basically a Saudi Prince now.

    I’m GA this year, which I like, cause I like to bounce around.

    Turns 7 and 9 are good spots though.

    I’ve been to the last 6 of these, so when next year comes around, feel free to ping me. Logistics out here can be challenging, but I think I’ve got it figured out.

    Just so you know, I witnessed a Major League Eating contest in which a guy ate 9.75 cans of Spam in 8 minutes, so this is an event for The People.

    I've never had Spam but I can't imagine that's good for a guy.

    Also, you know Texas is always going to find a way to make an F1 Grand Prix truly American. Good ol fashioned eating contest of processed food.

    I wish I enjoyed life as much as Daniel. I mean, I probably would if I lived how he lived but that's beside the point. He's earned it. Always good to see happy people.
