Did Fangio ever feature on a Christina Aguilera track? No. It’s as simple as that.

Will it become "The Formula 1 World Championship, except 2020" ?
That confuses you, but the rule about Kanye West doesn’t?

Thus losing his chance to get to the recording studio.

Sorry, I’m done, I think.

What a lap by Lewis. Boom!

I still don't get how Leclerc has hustled the Ferrari up there all weekend. It just isn't right.

The Mercedes are freakishly good. They look so smooth and stable, so reliable, theres no way of quantifying this but it might be the best F1 car ever made. Looking ahead to the second race next weekend the weather is going to be really hot again. We have seen in the past the Mercedes struggle in hot weather (Friday too) so things might be closer next week.

There was an interesting video on YouTube a few months ago....can’t remember if it was done by The Race or Autosport but it looked at the most dominant cars ever.....it was either the early 90s Mclaren or Williams but the percentage gap it had over the rest of the field was HUGE when compared to the modern Mercedes.

People look back to that era with fondness, but the ‘competativeness’ Was mainly down to reliability issues rather than cars being equally matched

Croft is trying to make up for it though - the "squeaky shrieker" just about burst my eardrums when LH snagged the pole.

Was just after midnight here in Oz - I was worried about getting a knock on the door and being accused of torturing someone's cat.

Oh & the Q session was quite different - the "slippery" T3/T4 caught a few out & been a while since a Lewis spin. They mentioned gusty winds and at Silverstone that can really make a big difference - wonder if it was that or something more than that?

Feels like the race could be fairly predictable at the front but man the midfield is nuts this year, really worth watching - oh and good again to see WGPE genuinely competitive in that midfield, rather than running as distant tail gunners.

Realistically F1 should just die so something fun and technologically exciting can replace it, like a proper electric single seater championship.

Perhaps start a thread on this? Then the race threads can be about the races and this interesting topic can have a chance to shine. It would save you having to repeat the the same thing each time, as that could be boring.
