    Haha at the Ferraris falling over each other.

    last few laps was really good and the pit stop strats kept it interesting.

    I love this* - a genuinely interesting bit of innovation that has left all of the other teams scratching their heads.



    * assuming, as James Allison said, it's all above board.

    Once you get over the '3 teams vs the rest' the racing was actually excellent last year - I'm hoping for similar this year.

    Merc are an amazing team - there is so much that other industries can learn from the way these folks operate at the very echelons of performance - closer to perfection than anything else.

    Shame they'll probably be gone from the sport soon.

    Well, yes, the rumours are rife but there are various pointers in either direction so I don't see it as a given to be honest.

    I'm not sure it matters in terms of atmosphere since it isn't as if you can hear the fans over the engines, it'll be more interesting when they have no fans at football games.

    I can see very few, mainly oil states, that can really afford to fund it without spectators although they may not have any choice.

    Tune into to any of the Serie A games today or tomorrow (Juve vs. Inter) - they're all being played behind closed doors.

    I can certainly see races like Baku being cancelled - they use it as a tool to drive tourism and if they can't do that there's very little point in holding it.

    Nothing official yet but it seems a total no-brainer to call it off.

    Yep - it was pretty much inevitable... shame though, I was looking forward to it!

    Anyone else watching some of the eSports / online streaming gaming we are getting at the moment? Yes, it's not the real thing, but some of it is good fun :)

    I've raced against a lot of them on iRacing. Good to see it getting mainstream coverage now.

    I haven't watched any of it directly but I've seen snippets in the IG stories of Albon, Norris and Russell.

    Yep - the tech is very good, though the official F1 game seems inferior to others such as iRacing - Max V refuses (so far) to play saying it's shit :)

    Must be strange to not rely on the g force and other sensations that they are used to.

    They have all spent alot of time in their own team simulators, so yes and no at the same time to be fair....
