i coulda slept in

Sidenote, I think its pretty funny that the fia have fuck all in terms of procedures for a rain out now that they cant tell the drivers to suck it up and drive blind anymore. Handled that like a club race.

MrSmithers96nah it was. i like russell but its a complete joke calling that a race and awarding points for it

What I never understood is why they insist on not awarding any points for qualifying, even if it's just a single point for pole like in F2, but suddenly when it rains they insist on doing some parade laps behind the safety car so the drivers can be... awarded a bunch more points for qualifying. Either just cancel the race and don't award any points or start recognising that qualifying is a skillful and risky display worthy of at least some reward. Even worse is that they now award points for a sprint race, which is just an extra twenty laps and a standing start on a Saturday tacked on to the Sunday race.

It will be intresting to see how the 2022 cars deal with the rain since the way they generate downforce is completely different and maybe there will be less spray from them?

albaIt will be intresting to see how the 2022 cars deal with the rain since the way they generate downforce is completely different and maybe there will be less spray from them?

Most of the spray comes directly from the tyres themselves(it's something like 400 liters per second that the tyres throw into the air), but the 2022 wings and diffuser are designed such that some of that water would be thrown higher in the air, so I'm not sure how that would work out in practice. It also crossed my mind while watching the "race" that next year's cars might be more sensitive to aquaplaning because such a large portion of the downforce is to be derived from the underfloor.

i dont think i would be anything like the f1 fan i am if he hadnt absolutely lit up the '03 season. absolutely better than his 1 WC suggests, he unfortunately had schumacher/alonso/hamilton in his prime.

that being said, its definitely time. hes carelessly driven into more than one person this year, and the results arent coming to him anymore

I guess that essentially confirms what the reports were then that Kimi was retiring, Bottas is going to Romeo and Russell is going to Mercedes

barring any comebacks next year, alonso will be the only driver on the grid remaining from when I first started watching F1. it's pretty surreal watching all these drivers go by
