And it appears the medium and soft tires can be fickle, a few made them work well late and a few were better early. The top 10 is split with the front runners on mediums and 6-10 on softs. It looks like it's a multi class race with 1-5 running well, 6-13 running somewhat together and the rest spread out.

Announcement for US fans is 3 more years of ad free coverage on the ESPN family. Races will run live on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC with on demand replays on the app. Yes, it's still the SkySports feed.

Well done Bottas, what a lap he did there. Lewis down in 5th, he needs to keep out of trouble at the start. Very messy between him and Max

Check this out, you don't see them whinging about bumps!

Is it possible for the drivers to point out there are bumps and that this is a challenge without them being branded and softies and not like the hard driver's of the past? Or should they keep their mouths shut so we don't even know?

I'm not saying no one is whinging, but most of what I've seen has been measured.

I'm not saying no one is whinging, but most of what I've seen has been measured.
I think some of it is the new common whinging about tracks not being perfectly smooth so when actual bumps become a problem it just sounds the same. It sounds like this round is actually a problem for some drivers but others have found a way around it or dealt with the bumps. I think some of it is also the modern car, the engineers know exactly what the car "needs" and when the track isn't perfect the problems are much worse than in the past.

But I think that same thing applies to car design and why there isn't the insane variety of the past. They've had say 30 years of "modern" F1 to keep refining the car and we've hit that peak. And the rules don't help. I don't think even the new rules will shake things up that much. I've been wrong before and will be again and often but it doesn't seem like teams are that worried about the changes yet.

I wouldn't call the variety in the past insane, though there were some insane designs. It was how designers back then, as they do now, interpreted the rules. However, in the past the rules governing F1 car design were not as rigid, as they now and therefore there was much more room for experimentation in both car and engine design.

It was a nice shot.

SKY seem to be injecting some good hype to the grid walk. Getting excited for the start because of it.

A clean start as Hamilton gets up to forth. A slight coming together with Albon and Sainz..

Ferrari can't even do a formation lap correctly anymore. Absolutely were not ready for the race start.
