Wow, that thing is fighting him all the way round. Amazing how slow it is compared to last year's F1 cars too. He has to wait so long to get the power down in 16/17/18 too, where the F1 guys are basically flat all the way.

Hamilton's 2018 pole lap as comparison:

I read somewhere that it's around 15 seconds a lap difference. They are just a tad slower than LMP1 from a few years ago.

Next time as Alonso is yelling "GP2 engine" he means it's going well :P

Excellent, another series that will be seen by a few thousand people rather than a few million. I can see why these series sign up to Sky so willingly...oh, er...

Looks like the aero screen didn't make it trough the crash testing (the word is that it did stop small debris but wasn't successful at wheels and big car parts/etc etc)

Did anyone expect the plastic screen to stop a big lump like a wheel/tyre combo at high speed? Really? :shock:
