Damn… hope that the rest of the weekend nothing more happens. Sean Gelael in Formula 2 ran over 2 marshals.

I can see it happening, on the first lap the leader crashes somewhere near the castle, on the really tight bit, and the next 5 or 6 drivers pile in. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red bull all out on the first lap.
I smell a chance for Williams to get a podium!


They will be so far the rest and slow enough to avoid trouble when hell breaks loose :P

So DRS is going to be super strong here as Leclerc just showed, a large chunk of that 7 tenths came on the main strait when he had the DRS tow behind max.

The big rear wing working well for Ferrari in sector 2.

And still faster than Merc in S3, probably explained by engine modes though.
Or slipstream obviously :)

Wanted to hear that radio message by Bottas (?). Instead I heard all about dry ice and cooling the intakes.

Worst production ever. Why can't the radio stream also go into the ears of whoever is talking? Astonishing.

Anyone know why they keep pulling Lewis's engine cover off? This is like the second or third time this session.
