Great job again, MtthsMlw.

Are there changes to the sprint format from last season? Does the winner of the sprint still get credited with the grand prix pole position?

Thanks :)
Yeah some changes. Pole position is awarded in qualifying again while the winner of the sprint will be just sprint (event) winner. Also more points, now for the top 8 with 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Does the winner of the sprint still start first on Sunday? When they first said that the pole was awarded in the qualifying I was confused

Yes, sprint still sets the grid for the race.

This track has like one place to overtake on right? And I think the only other way to pass was by pressuring your opponent into a mistake. Both ways are much easier to do this year.

How does that work exactly? "Well done. You are credited with pole but you won't start on pole."

Sprint race should just replace Q1 and call it good.

All we really need is a qualifying straight that leads onto the track.

Rain looking like a possibility this weekend. Given where Ferrari seem strong - low to medium speed and under traction, a layman has to assume rain would play to their strengths.

I also have to assume it would help merc who, at least in race trim, seem to have similar strengths to the Ferrari. Rain would slow them down a bit maybe making porpoising less of an issue?

Redbull with an understeery balance and favouring low-load wings and high top speeds, one assumes, would struggle…

But that’s just my best guess. Can’t wait to watch it unfold. Even as an Aussie who just got to watch his favourite team dominate in aus, I’m happy that f1 is back in Europe and some order can be restored to my sleep schedule.

Previously they raise the ride height for a wet setup, I assume that is still the case for the ground effect cars.

If so that would presumably in and of itself help reduce porpoising.

Turned down the chance to meet Vettel at Silverstone in 2007. He was a test driver at the time and I didn't think it was worth queuing!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

The increase in ride height has come mainly, if not exclusively, from the tyres. There is 5 mm difference in radius between dry and wet. This is the same as before. I suspect this year’s cars are more sensitive to ride height. Perhaps the bigger wing, draggier cars will benefit.
