Very sad. RIP Charlie Whiting.

 

 

The main benefit of C4 potentially losing its coverage of F1 is that we wouldn't see so much of Steve Jones. If coverage goes exclusively to Sky, I dare say many people will just boot up their laptops or Kodi more often - the little naughties.

That is very very sad news, he always seemed to me one of the most sane and sensible people in the circus that is the F1 world. RIP Charlie.

I thought Lewis's personal trainer finished last year? She was back with him again after the qualifying ...

I'm no expert but being aware of the above and whilst watching Quallies today, have Ferrari already changed their front wing to a wider one?

Well done Valterri. Excellent drive. Two other things:

 

Mercedes say the floor of Lewis's car was damaged during the race. But they didn't say this until after race ended. Wonder whether this came from Engineering or PR department... Hmmmm

 

Leclerc asked his engineer if he should stay behind Vettel and got told Yes.  He needs to learn not to ask those sort of questions, just ask for forgiveness...

 

Interesting times ahead I think!

Ferrari had issues with their power unit and couldnt use race mode due to fear of the engine going pop. Once they sort this then i think it will be much closer.

 

It was good to see how close they could follow too. Should be a great season.

Go Lewis!!!!!!!!!! Ferrari are clearly on the ragged edge, trying to beat the Mercs.

 

Vettel MUST lose the moustache.

That for me was a great race!

 

I did feel a little sorry for LeClerc, but Vettel is starting this season like he finished the last. I really like the fact how close the cars can follow now. this season may just be worth the subscription.

Gutted for Leclerc even though I'm a Lewis fan. He drove superbly but that's motorsport for you.

 

Was a great race I agree, if we have more of that this season, I will be very happy.

 

I think of the new drivers in new teams, one of the biggest strugglers at the moment is Gasly - where was he for Red Bull yesterday?
