Re: 2021 French Grand Prix Race Thread

I'm so very happy for Perez. One of my favourite all time drivers
He's getting his dues. Great guy, and solid, reliable racer. At the start of his career was unfairly dismissed by some as a pay driver.

Marshall running across a live track. Another safety problem in F1.
You get the feeling that too many Marshall's are not versed in the safety history of the sport.

Re: 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix Race Thread

If the race does restart wouldn’t they be better doing a rolling start instead of standing restart so there’s less chance of something like that happening again.

Why does the medical car look like it's dropped it's coolant??? They had shots of it parked, and sky commentators were discussing that it had been checked. But they didn't seem to notice the coloured liquid which appears to have spilt from it. Which I speculate is coolant

I think I read that Grosrean bristled at Tost's suggestion of a drivers salary cap, saying that F1 drivers are the one's risking their lives. If so... that he would be the one to have a crash that so starkly reminds all of that is.... at the very least eery

Hamilton is overdoing it with the politics

I can take the BLM writing on the helmet, I can take the activism... but the political slogan at a podium ceremony is not activism. It is a stunt. It's boneheaded. And I am not a white male. *edit* not white at all. Can we please, please, leave the overt politics out of at least the podium ceremonies?
