I just feel letting drivers chuck their car up the inside, push the other guy wide and then drive off into the distance is one of the reasons this sport has gotten so dull with so few overtaking opportunities. Obviously not being able to follow the car in front closely enough is the main one, but restricting the likelihood of battles and drivers coming back at cars that try to overtake, is a fair contributor too IMO.

Surprised about that, Autosport were talking about Sainz as a possible Gasly replacement. I guess they locked him down quick in case he was asked back

The F1 2019 Thread

The Rich Energy/Team Haas debacle is going great guns at the moment, first the logo theft, now the Twitter account “ hijacking” and we have no idea if they are out or in.

Just been listening to where’s the money coming from and it appears it’s the same con-artist who did (and then didn’t) buy Forti Ford in the 90’s, The Shannon Group. It seems this could go all the way to the Russian Mafia and .... murder

Thrilling to watch, Silverstone is such an awesome circuit, lots of high speed bends and no stupid street circuit!

Yep, just what I was thinking. Meaningless penalty because he was lucky enough for his car to stay running.
