    Anyone been watching " Formula 1, Drive to survive" on Netflix? Loving it, just don't watch when the kids are around the language can be choice!

    Doubt it. The red cars have a cudos that no others can match. 'I drove for Ferrari'! Their form is already returning, and this slow pace is just a blip in their long, illustrious history.

    He'll crash it.


    It's an interesting season. Cars that were dominant (Ferrari, Red bull) are now being surpassed by cars that were mid order at best (RP, McLaren). Even Williams are no longer back of the grid!

    Back to F1, and Lewis showed just how good he, and the Mercedes car are breaking the lap record twice in qualifying.
    Nice to see Racing Point split the Ferrari's and that McLaren is going to be a a seroius rival for Mercedes next season when they have Merecedes power units instead of Renault. To be beating the works Renault shows how well their car is designed.

    And at last.................Williams no longer back of the grid. Nice to see after the troubles of the last few years.

    Perez tested positive for Covid yesterday and is being replaced with the Hulk this weekend. Hulk could end up doing both Silverstone GPs and also Spain, depending on when Perez tests negative and how long he has to isolate for

    ^ The last 3 laps made up for what was a pretty dull race otherwise.
    Mercedes are head and shoulders quicker than every other team and unless they have problems or make a mistake they should finish 1/2 every race with that car.
    Felt for Bottas today who was certain to pick up big points today until that puncture. Thats the kind of luck that will stop Bottas winning a World drivers championship. Lewis has one hand on it already.
