Stroll gets a lot of unnecessary stick. Decent peddler who, previously, just couldn't qualify well at all.

He comes alive in the rain which says a lot.

He was beaten by Stroll. Ass kicked? Not so sure. He was pretty close in Q2, but missed the cut off, although Stoll had his little mistake.

Still, assuming he lasts the race it will be good seat time and then he gets another go next week and there is still chance to achieve something this weekend.

I don't think you could expect much from Hulk this weekend tbh. As much as many of us want him to do well, he basically landed in the country and jumped straight in the car after eight months of twiddling his thumbs.

I dread to think how he actually fits in the car for a start.

In first practice he had a problem with the seat, causing him some pain. I don't know if they managed to rectify it, I assume they'd at least have eased it, but another annoyance that couldn't help.

Strolls fine. There have been far worse pay drivers than him. That's all he is - a pay driver.

Also, I think F1 should never allow fans back in. It was nice to not have the TV director cutting to shots of the fans, or artificially adjusting the microphone volumes to put "ooooo" and cheering noises in.

Ha! That's an interesting take.

Imagine if the Dutch GP had gone ahead. We'd have never seen any of the actual race. Max in a corner, cut to fans, Max on a straight, cut to fans obscured by orange flare smoke, Max obscured by orange flare smoke, turn down volume of airhorns so director can concentrate on the next corner's fans.

No VIPs to swoon over either.

A race simply isn't a race without seeing Kanye West standing at the back of the garage.

Stroll has upped his game this year, certainly in comparison with Perez. However Hulkenberg is no yardstick really due to the weird circumstances.

Its strange that the TV did not show any of the Mercedes flyng laps. Yes, we know they were going to lock out the front row, but I would still prefer to see either of them over Strolls 2nd lap.

That's true, everyone is talking about there needing to be eight races on three continents, but will the winner be a true champion without the requisite Kayne West quota? I know that is why some don't rate Fangio so highly.

He hob-nobbed with Steve McQueen, so maybe, just maybe he was a worthy F1 champion afterall?

He does.

Though I did think his move on Ric earlier this season was fairly clumsy. And to be honest i cant think of any other passes Stroll has made and the only reason i recall that one is because Norris picked both their pockets afterwards.

Stroll is alright but imo lacks that thing (flair might be the thing?) that is immediately recognizable in drivers like Norris.

Absolutely pathetic from Fangio there, you can't do it years after you retired.

Oh excellent point. I forgot about that. Yes. Lets keep non-essentials banned.

This "8 races on 3 continents" thing is confusing me. To be a World Championship? It isn't like, a law of nature. It's a rule written by the FIA. If the rule cannot be satisfied due to an unexpected world wide pandemic, then what difference does it make saying it was still a world championship? Will it become "The Formula 1 World Championship, except 2020" ?

Seems like fuss over nothing. It's a world championship.
