The problem is Pirelli are locked in as the only supplier, so they don't have to worry about another tyre supplier coming in if they thought they could do a better job and so don't necessarily have to make the best tyres they can

1. How to keep the track free of debris
2. How to make the tyres more debris-resistant
Verstappen Snr has always been a loose cannon as evidenced by his past behaviour. As for the track clean up problem, get rid of carbon fibre and the problem goes away. It is simply horrible stuff when it gets smashed and has caused lots of incidents after crashes.

The only thing is carbon fibre is a very good material from a car structure point of view. It is light very strong and is able to be made into complex shapes, it also performs very well in impacts as evidenced last Sunday or Bahrain last year.

I must have read way more into this exchange than anyone else. It was like an illustration of why stroll is just a rich kid driving and not a serious racer. Where verstappen or most any other driver would be ****ed and upset at a race ruined, stroll's first thought was "get me out of the car/track". It is perfectly understandable, and I'm not faulting him for it, but it felt like someone who isnt fully committed or chasing a burning desire type of thing. Then that got me wondering, how many years will he be interested in racing in f1? At that moment, I thought maybe only another year or two. Then I wondered if he would move into a team principal type role, or if daddy stroll would keep the team after his kid is done, or what. Lots of wandering thoughts during the caution period, haha. Also, probably me just reading way more into it than what was warranted.

Yeah, sorry but think you're reading way more into it. I can think of many a driver who has switched very quickly to survival mode as a shunt has happened - understandably as you say. If I was strapped into a canoe with other cars bearing down on my at circa 200mph it'd concentrate my mind on that as well I reckon.

Not a great fan of Stroll junior - don't really rate him at all driver wise but I'm also conscious that I might be being a bit unfair and ultimately, he is at least capable of piloting an F1 car midfield or higher.

As Martin Brundle said, Stroll was fighting really hard to stay to the side of the track when he had his accident. Had he spun into the middle of the road and been hit by another car, it would have been dangerously similar to Anthoine Hubert's accident. For this reason, Lance Stroll would have felt both terrified and relieved when his car came to rest, and it is not surprising that his first thought was just 'get out of the car.' I think this is always the first thought of drivers when they have dangerous crashes. The one that springs to mind is Nico Hulkenberg in Abu Dhabi 2018: 'I'm hanging here like a cow! Get me out! There's fire!'

I must admit that from the in-car footage I was impressed that during the whole crash sequence Stroll appeared to by trying to control the car (or what was left of it) as much as possible!

Yes, I was too. He was clearly trying to stop the car moving further out into the track.

agreed a very well made observation.

imo, if the young man was more interested in staying home and enjoying his family's money he could have easily done so after contracting covid. like many of the athletes who have gotten it, he too experienced a reduction in his conditioning but came back and scored a pole and a podium. that means he put in the work.

im not saying that makes him the best or anything, but i do think it proves his desire to not only be a part of but also to be a respected member of the grid is genuine.

also much love for Canadians!...and also its not Latifi's fault so penalties should be applied to his team instead of points on his licence!
