    The Leclerc DNS really hurt me. I used my turbo driver on him.

    Well that was an interesting race. All this marshal policing is getting a bit tiring.

    Still not sure how I feel about what happened. Hamilton's post race celebration seemed excessive though (or a bit tone deaf), especially considering what happened on lap 1

    I think, coming from 5th on the track (realistically 3rd in race position), 15s behind the leader with 24 laps to go at the home race on the circuit with a portion named for him... in a vacuum it would be hailed as one of the greatest drives in modern F1. The way he was pounding fastest laps for like 8 laps in a row on hard tires was remarkable. I can understand feeling it in that moment, even if it felt a little off as a spectator.

    As for the incident... it felt like it was a long time coming. And I immediately thought of Brundle talking about Senna. (starts at 6:00 since I can't seem to get time embedding to work here)

    Yeah, Sorry for Max, but that's racing. Both guys going for it, that's the job.

    Hammy can absolutely drive, I enjoy seeing him chase to the front, vs simply leading from the start. I'm not a Lewis fanboy, but man, I respect his skill.

    Horner was/is protesting loudly, I'm sure Toto would be doing exactly the same if the outcome was reversed.

    What always gets me his just how fragile modern F1 cars are. The slightest hit and carbon fiber yard sale. yes, I realize they are designed to do this, but in the past cars seemed to be able to duke it out without instant dnfs.

    This season is not boring at all!.

    What do you guys think of the sprint racing? I don't like it. Qualifying is the fastest lap on the track in my book. Do the teams really want to risk accidents racing before the "real" race?

    I found the sprint race wildly entertaining and the racing was superb… but it kind of just doesn’t feel like F1, you know? Like, F2 and Moto3 are often more “entertaining” than the top rung, and that’s ok. The top class was always about near perfection and the slow burn to me, and I’d prefer the classic format, but maybe just because I’m old and in the way.

    Yeah. I was at the Indy Car race in Detroit last month and those things (and how they are driven) are like bumper cars in comparison. All the aero bits are super chunky and simple compared to F1 and while it's no NASCAR, those guys are definitely rubbing.

    I hope the car of 2022 is a little less fragile than the current car.

    Or maybe Verstappen needs some of these for Hamilton:

    My favorite thing about this incident: Toto, car and driver intact, with free repair time during the red flag, still manages to be pompous and ridiculous:
