Re: 2019 Canadian Grand Prix Race Thread

Without looking, I recall the last couple of Canadian GPs being right stinkers in terms of overtaking.

Max and Bottas will rue starting so far down.

Re: 2019 Chinese Grand Prix Race Thread

Whoever was in charge of the broadcast today must have been suffering through a serious hangover from last night. So many bad shots were cut to: cameras moving around, odd zooming into cars at the final corner, some shots being held seconds longer than they should have been. Woeful!

I appreciate Autosport is probably working (and will forever work) on a skeleton crew, but it's pretty disappointing tipping for round 2 were unavailable.

All the more worse given the Australia tips look very different to the Bahrain ones.

Surprises of the session seem to be Red Bull (who would have guessed Verstappen to be so close to the top?) and Renault (who would have guessed Ricciardo to be so far behind?).

I suspect (read: hope) Renault were performing heavy runs for much of the session, though.

Re: Renault & McLearn leapfrog Red Bull

It depends. A well-timed one is pretty hard to defend against, as is any good overtaking move. If it's a case of a driver flying up the inside and missing his/her braking point, then hanging onto the racing line and being ready to swoop back by when they go too deep is pretty traditional.

Max needs to grow up, regardless of what happens on the track. Excessive swearing on the worldwide broadcast is one thing, but getting physical with another driver crosses a line.
