Whatever happened to Labbats? They used to be on Forest shirts as well.

That car was mental and the technical innovations they had planned, I recall them saying they had a plan to predict where the driver wanted the car to go and adjust or something.

Nice analysis from Jolyon Palmer on the start at Spa from the top four:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0ULlzCU6xY

In particular he talks about how Bottas could have not got caught out and had to back off so much and taken the slipstream down the straight later for a go at Hamilton.

Absolutely spot on

Bottas got too tight too early

Wow, end of an era indeed.
Williams will no longer be Williams. Frank and Claire stepping down, now that it’s been sold.
Inevitable, but still sad.

Bye bye Renault AGAIN!

Alpine is the rebrand and Blue, White and Red is the livery.

They're part of Renault, aren't they?

So a bit like the Toro Rosso rebrand to AlphaTauri?

I'll miss the yellow and black livery - it's one of my favourites!

Yep, clearly the recent reports of Alpine’s demise were exaggerated.

these comms don't half get stuff wrong or overly confuse themselves.

Brundle couldn't see anything Lando did wrong even though he was literally watching him hold up Perez on the way in.

Croft keeps repeating a car can't abort the pit lane if there's a light on the way in. So put it on the slip road entry FFS!

These are supposed to be clever guys who know the sport.

They also watch the timing screens too much, again they got an overtake the wrong way round when the cameras cut to Albon/Leclerc.

I get they've got a lot to keep their eye on but the other lads like Karun and Di Resta should be telling them this too.
