Charlie seemed like a fair and reasonable person. He will be missed.

I don’t always watch F1 practice but when I do, it’s the season opener. 10 pm tonight, w00t!

Leclerc should have been given a chance to go after Max.

It is but I think they were concerned about three aspects.

1. Turbo location is low and tucked up against the block for lower center of gravity and packaging reasons.

2. Equal length runners

3. Rather than a 4-1, they wanted a 4-2-1. Probably concerned with the torque curve.

Is it just me or does DRS and other speed boosts just defeat the purpose of skill and fundamental engineering? Just seems to waste more money overall. (Aero design and wind tunnels are probably more expensive than electronics and engine development). Does it even make for more exciting races? I think lead trophies accumulated throughout the season is much more effective to pull back the Hamilton’s and Bottas.

I think DRS should be allowed on any straight that they designate DRS zone at any time one is in the zone, not just 'within 1.5 seconds of a rival'
