To be honest 😂😂😂😂😂 (do a shot!) I wasn’t sure if it was me being half-asleep while watching it, or the race was actually that boring.

Thanks for confirming it 👍🏻
I couldn’t even stay focused. Kept looking for something else to do.

Also, appendicitis usually takes a good month of non-strenuous activity. So DeVries might be in that car for a few races. At the least, Singapore next weekend.

Not an electrifying race today, but I was doing shit around the house while i was watching it, so that helped it go by quicker :LOL: That was a tough call at the end there. But I think the race director did the right thing, even if it did rob everyone of a photo finish. With the kind of failure danny ric had, everyone would have expected that car to be cleared super quick, but then they ran into issues, and it was so close to the end at that point, and by that time the window to red flag the race had well passed. Sucks, but it is what it is. Ferrari's decision to pull Leclerc in early under that VSC was a gamble, but I don't feel like it was a bad call from them. Leclerc just did not have the pace today.

Sainz had a fantastic drive today

I think it's time to say Russell's debut with mercedes this year has been amazing. He's been the model of consistency and he's now only 7 points away from 3rd in the drivers championship! I am happy.

And De Vries!! Listen, Latifi, I respect the hell out of you, but I think it's time for you to find another hobby. De Vries LITERALLY gets thrown in the car at the last possible second this weekend, makes his formula one debut, and scores points for Williams. How many points does Latifi have for williams this year? Oh thats right none. I mean lets not forget De Vries is a Formula E world champion, so he's definitely got skills, but still.......Latifi please let someone else with some actual talent take that seat.

De Vries could barely even get out of the car on his own after the race. He's certainly a fit person, but just shows you HOW fit you need to be to pilot one of these things. Makes his performance even more amazing. Granted Monza isn't a particularly physically demanding track compared to many others, so I think De Vries definitely lucked out being thrown in this weekend. If he is driving in Singapore in 3 weeks, he better get training NOW.

That’s incredible. Never seen a driver that wore out. Also respect to the Indy drivers with no power steering.

Ayrton Senna, Brazil 1991. He lost most of the gears in the transmission, had to wring everything out of the car using just 6th. His team had to lift him out of the car and was driven to the podium in the medical car. It was also raining.

Why? He’s just another pay driver with an unimpressive record

True. I honestly don't know much about Latifi, what his background is, where his money comes from, but at least his daddy doesnt own an F1 team (as far as i know :LOL: )

Perez - I had to pit [early] because of a brake issue.
Horner - We had to call Perez in to pit because of a massive lockup that flat-spotted a tire was causing terminal vibrations.

So, which is it?

no more Race 1 in Australia?

I thought they were going to make the logistics better with less travel? It does seem improved though.

Well its a more sensible solution than they did way back in the early years, where they had TWO cars, and halfway into the race they pulled one into the pits, hopped into the other one, and away they went :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

I remember #1 when it happened. Like when was this EVER a good idea?? :LOL:

:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I don't remember this, at all!




Confronting Magnussen in the TV pen after he pushed him off the track at the 2017 Hungarian GP, the Dane famously told Hulkenberg: “Suck my balls, honey.”

The two cleared the air earlier this season when Hulkenberg was in the paddock in Bahrain, the 35-year-old revealing he had “greeted him with, ‘Suck my balls, honey’. That’s my exact words to him. He quite liked it!”
