Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

Well, if yesterday's F2 race was anything to go by, this circuit could produce some excellent racing. Perhaps it will give the organisers thoughts about running on this circuit each year.

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Brilliant from George. The fact it's a short lap meant that a gap of a couple of tenths would translate to quite a big gap on a normal lap, but this quali gap means that even if it was tripled, it would be very respectable. Great also from Leclerc and Kvyat.

Re: F2 & F3

Just caught up with today's race. Brilliant entertainment but shocking defensive driving from Mazapin. Double movements and basically blocking, not defending.

Very good again from Schumacher. After issues in quali, that was as good as he could have done, I think.

I just don't get this Slow Sunday reputation Russell has with a lot of people. It gets mentioned on this forum quite a bit.

Not sure about on-screen at the circuit, but there were no replays of the crash on TV until well after Romain was out and had been reported as being fundamentally fine.

You'd wonder what this crash might mean for the future of the Monaco GP, and the introduction of many street circuits of recent years.

Unless I am mistaken, the medics in the medical car have open-faced helmets.

Now, I'm not saying the medics should simply walk straight into a raging fire, but I would think fu...

That way you get a slippery surface, which you can incline to increase momentum loss, for cars, without sacrificing the gravel for bikes. Nice thought, but I'm not sure how ...
