If Zak ain't worried about him then I ain't worried about him.

Alpine putting a good showing in FP2 so far. Maybe they have figured some things out for the year.

Is that crash the best thing to happen to Romain’s popularity? Did anyone like him before it?


I think people who're relatively new to F1 in the last ~5 years(myself included) don't have much appreciation for Grosjean's career as an F1 driver. More often than not he was a backmarker, but the guy has been around for about a decade in the sport.

RoGro had some high profile bonehead moves and that sort of became his meme. Kind of like how everyone waits for Mazespin to do a 180 these days.

The Spa crash of his could be seen as costing Alonso another world championship.

Woof Red Bull is slow so far. Mercedes seems to have the advantage this weekend, no shocker this year. But if RB falls back to the midfield in this race, going to be trouble staying up there in the championship with Mercedes.

I don't know what was up with RBR in FP2. Merc threw out a lot better time on mediums than Max could on softs. Maybe it was feul load or something, but Max came in for one lap on softs and it was not good at all.

Max definitely didn't seem happy after so it seems more actual performance than them doing race sim or fuel load.

Yeah, I can't stop laughing when someone is trying to warm up their tires and hits the wall.

Abiteboul vowed to make Ricciardo regret leaving for McLaren. I didn't think they could pull it off, but it would be great to see these two teams mix it up all year.

Cyril left too. New role is still Renault/Alpine related, but no longer team boss.

Apparently he is still down for the tattoo though.

Not to mention Grosjean's incredibly reckless Spa wipeout could have easily killed Alonso.

Damnit. Hamilton is so good.

I think Max is forcing him to up his game and he’s enjoying it.

That last stint in Q3 was head scratcher with everyone +.300 or more... wind?

Also, I'm really impressed with what Alpine is putting together this year.

Hamilton was genuinely surprised how young PDLR still looks. PDLR was relegated to McLaren test driver when Hamilton was signed in 2007, and was in that role for three seasons, so they know each other well.

Old guys Alonso, Vettel, and Räikkönen are not looking good.

Wow, I really thought Perez would finally be the decent teammate Max needs, but he also seems to be crumbling under the weight of that pressure.

Really needed someone other than Hamilton on pole for some intrigue on Sunday.

Otherwise battle for second down tomorrow should be great. Everyone else will be bunched together

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread
What frustrates me is that with no refueling, there needs to be a big enough difference in the tire compounds that alternate strategies are common. An S/M/S two-stopper should be competitive with a S/H one-stopper (or something like that). Or better yet, don't require using two compounds in the race, make S/S/S comparable to M/M and H/S. Now that would make the racing more interesting, and if someone has an early race incident and has to pit early, it gives them a viable alternative strategy to get back in the mix (requiring two compounds can really mess with this). Pirelli does nothing but disappoint. I'd love for Michelin or Bridgestone to return.

Lost a ton of respect for Yuki and glad to see people calling him out for it.
