Always love to see the C17s doing the beat up over the track before the race. They're an incredible machine and always amaze the crowd so much more than a buzzy little fighter zipping by. 300 tons of metal, doing 550km/h at only 100m off the deck is just God damn cool!

Mercedes designed their car with the theory that they'll never have to deal with dirty air again perhaps... And to be fair it's not exactly a bad design ideology for them at the moment

I guess we should have seen that coming with all the sliding about. Did they call him in or is he going to just skulk around in 8th?

Ferrari's seem to be holding up ok. But we don't know how much Hamilton has in the bag.
