And Turkey instead?!?!

I'm still undecided if I want to go to Austin this year, but I think Austin is still undecided too. There's normally communication from the track and still, nothing.

"Ok, Pierre."

:p:p

What do you all think of the new qualifying format for this weeks race?

Can't get that link to display anything? I have the PVR set to record quali and the race. Just watched today's results on the F1 YouTube channel. I'll have to read up on the new system when I get home from work. I loved racing the Silverstone track in the '67 Grand Prix Legends sim, but that was before they added all of the dumb chicanes everywhere. :D The two races in Austria were fun to watch.

Darn PVR recorded the pre-show but had a conflict with the Sprint so I had to watch highlights on Youtube. I don't mind traditional qualifying but I think the Sprint is good for the sport. Much more excitement for fans on Saturday and adds some unpredictability.

I'd be curious to read a transcript from the race stewards on the Verstappen / Hamilton race incident. After hearing various opinions I am leaning towards a racing incident. Verstappen cut in with the expectation that Hamilton had backed off but Hamilton still had room between his car and the apex, so they both contributed. The stewards were crafty. By assessing the lesser 10 second penalty they gave Hamilton enough time to catch LeClerc and give the crowd a British victory. Co-incidence? :D

First off, I'm not sure I liked the format so much. Best scenario for a driver is they move up a couple of spots on the grid. Worst case is there's a mishap, there's not time to recover, and they go to the back of the grid. In the end it really only effects the race for those who had mishaps.

As far as penalties, I'm of the opinion that the stewards are overzealous giving them out. Let them race! Most the penalties they administer are just racing incidents and should not have penalties. By assessing penalties for these they discourage the type of racing they want to encourage! It's totally absurd. Keep penalties for just the full on stupid mistakes. Not for drivers trying to go wheel to wheel and race through a turn.

I watched a Netflix special on Schumacher. Like Hamilton, he started off from very humble beginnings as well. IHO, he still ranks as the best Formula1 Driver out there because he took Ferrari which was a very broken team with a really sh?t car and transformed Ferrari back to their former glory. He would close up shop with the mechanics looking for ways to improve the car while the car was in development. He treated the Ferrari team like an extension of his family. Its easy to win championships in cars that are already the best in the pack but quite another to nurse and develop a sh?t car into something viable and start winning races. Ferrari's last trip to the podium before Schumacher agreed to drive was back in 1979, the year I graduated from high school.

I enjoyed the Shoey documentary too.

It's also why I put a * on Hamilton. No doubt he's one of the greats. However, MB cars are so far ahead of everyone else's. So much so that no matter who they put in the 2nd seat that person is vying for a championship and taking wins.

Cool, that's on my list to watch. Loved their Drive to Survive series and the doc on Senna.

I have to watch that one next. Schumacher and Senna locked horns a few times and Senna tried to show the young upstart who was boss but Schumacher wasnt having any of that.
