Checo was doing ok, engineer requested he switch the differential settings from 5 to 4, next turn he spun.

Mercs are flying with incredible top speed.

Hammy botched the start and Bottas lifted to accommodate.

Alonso kept swerving to keep Lando behind.

Poor Bottas. If looks could kill.

Not a fan on the sprint race but withholding judgement until Monza.

Russel’s punted Sainz by overdriving his car.

It’s rarely peculiar that Bono/James/Toto apologize to Hammy post-race. Seems odd and forced.

I think I like the sprint qualifying but too early to tell. I'd like to see 50km vs. 100km. I think that would really have everyone going for it. Today sorted out like a shortened race with the only surprise being Perez further back due to misfortune. Sainz had a great come back drive though. Hopefully tomorrow is a great race!

Strange . Because Checo confirmed in his latest interview that he spun in dirty air coming from the car in front of him .

Checo is a team player and not the type of person to cast blame (positive attribute). I’m sure turbulent air was a contributing factor but he got caught out by throttle application.

This is the distance to Lando right before the spin.

Checo isn’t made for sprint races, could be an absolute monster in the World Endurance Championship.

Max is driving at an entirely different level. Hammy’s scolding/panic to Bono on hitting the start specs and confusion about not being ahead is telling. And when did it become a thing to say “extra work in the sim” paid off, it’s your job to perform on the track, if sim work is required then just do the work.
If a student skipped a party before an exam to study, don’t come to me looking for a “that-a-boy” and a cookie.

Pretty sure Lando, LeCrash and Max live in the sim and Danny R just got one for his living room.

Silver arrows have the top speed, if Hammy gets out in front he will be very tough to pass.

Poor bottas, I’d love to see him with a competitive ride next year.

I quite like sprint qualifying!!! I normally watch free practice 2 on Friday but it's kinda boring. Sprint qualifying produces 3 days of excitement instead of just 2. Don't think I'd go through the trouble of heading to the track for a 100km race but it's good for TV. Ratings and money will tell if it sticks around or not.

I've also never liked the top 10 drivers having to start the race with the exact tires they qualified with in Q2. Exact specification maybe? Used tires no!

I understand cost cutting but be real. Tires aren't that expensive in the grand scheme of things. Drivers should never have to worry about saving tires or running out.

Give the teams 10 sets to pick from and let the best man win.

I kind of liked the sprint race too! I think making it a little shorter may even produce more excitement. Perhaps 10-12 laps instead of 17.

I also like the sprint race.
But what if there are a lot of crashes?
That could really impact results on race day, also for contenders that were innocent victims of the crash.

I don't know if I would still like the sprint race if MAZ would take out VER is some foolish way..

Whew.. it's getting 'as I was in the seat' tech now
I'll just stick to the fact that Checo is good at one thing and that's the race and not so hot in set up and quali/P1 &2.

I think it may be to do with tyre wastage and re-cycling also I believe, that is being taken into account even in F1.

Today , the Silverstone track will 'chew crazy fast through the tires ...Blistering !
After 10-12 laps , most of the tires will be gone.That's why I'm thinking more of a '3 X pitter today .

Currently at Silverstone : It's even hotter today , with a air-temp of '30C° + in the shade !

The best tire - management & strategy is the race winner from today ...

Definitely more than one stop there's no way one stop will win this race and as usual Max has it all on his shoulders with BOT being the 'slave' for hammy who will be used snidely.

Exactly my friend !

One thing is for sure : Today the tires will overheat in no time..
The drivers will have to deal with extreme vibrations coming from the tires !

Great opening segment on the GP Sunday pre-race show this morning....Lando Norris driving an old public transit bus and picking up the Sky Sports announcers in London.

Off-Topic !
I'm fine , thank you my friend

Well , considering the circumstances . I'm very , "VERY" grateful that my house , garage, cars , and everything I'm owning ..is on a high hill (higher-ground)
I'm fine , I have electricity ,Internet , food and drink water . 12 miles from my house ,+/- 35,000 people at Liege and in the Belgian Ardennes are hungry and without electricity and drink water .
They lost everything...

Currently the 'Belgian death toll is : '28 dead and 123 are still missing ...
Today a Belgian farmer found on his field in the mud a 15 year old girl , she drowned in the river 'The Ourthe !
The missing people were called on their smartphones , our media providers said there is no incoming signal...

***May they RIP***

#NeverForget !!!

Because this is a car forum , I'll post these ..
This Isn't a river ! These "were highways !

UK viewers don't need to know that the race is being shown live on ITV for free but it's easy to miss for those that haven't sky.
