Early April Fool's from Renault: Hulkenberg and Ricciardo going for 6th and 7th until their cars gave up three laps before the end.

Ferrari can't ditch these stupid problems no matter what year it is :wall: Dominating the whole weekend and then the last 15 or so laps happened. Another BS win for the brit troll...

Glad Leclerc still held on to the podium with some safety car help :p

Ferrari blows another race when they should have 1-2 on paper. Vettel is absolutely useless in wheel-to-wheel action, Leclerc is the real deal, enough with geriatric asses of Webber and Raikkonen boosting Vettel's profile. Unless Ferrari applies blatant TO, Leclerc should be the team leader going forward IMO. Cannot trust Vettel holding his own under pressure ever AGAIN.

It's pretty much 100% certain (fine, let's go with 99,99%) that tomorrow Heineken, Chase Carey and others will officially annouce next year's return of the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort :cheer: :woohoo:

 

It's been off the calendar since 1985 and since Max Verstappen's insane popularity talks have been getting stronger and stronger about it getting back. In recent weeks it has been 'confirmed' over and over again, with the words used for example by Jan Lammers (boss of the Zandvoort part of the talks) getting stronger all the time. More or less everything is now reporting (of course copying each other) tomorrow will be the day it's officially announced :)

Sadly I have zero expectations for this circuit in modern F1. It's too narrow and lacks long straights while being in the Imola/Catalunya mood for dull racing. Maybe some heavy rain will save this from being a boring procession year after year.

 

Still, replacing Catalunya is probably the right choice.

Long straights don't necessarily make a track interesting. Baku has a huge straight and all that happens there is super duper easy DRS overtakes :p

F1 is DRS these days. That's the only way they can create overtaking tbh. Power-to-weight ratio is massively skewed as the hybrid-engined cars weight is twice as big as in the early 90s and triple as much as the 60s.

 

Only people who haven't seen any racing at Zandvoort over the last several years can be fooled into thinking this is a major upgrade.

Nope :)

 

I'm massively in favour of old classics coming back and very, very strongly opposed to DRS-tracks like Vietnam which is unique in absolutely no aspect at all.
