Hopefully F1 will never race at Mugello again. It's a beautiful circuit but I don't believe it's right for F1. Very fast, twisty and narrow.
Great to see Albon on the podium but I was sad to see Horner play down this success by saying it was a shame Max's car failed as they could have challenged the Mercs. Poor really, he should have been supportive of his No 2 driver not belittling the achievement. Still, I suppose he's running out of business partners to blame.

Hopefully they do. And if we chose only circuits that are right for F1 then we don't have any races.

In the bit I saw I thought Horner was quite nice about Albon

Sounds like a perfect circuit to me. Agree that it's different to the wide open spaces we're used to these days but to me Mugello is a "proper" circuit - takes genuine commitment to go fast, it's demanding and tiring and bites hard if careless or the talent runs out - it presents the type of challenges that circuits should provide.

The location and scenery simply make it breathtaking! Unlikely we'll see it again due to being in Italy and number of races per country etc but in an ideal world, F1 would go there again (& again).

At Mugello the earlier the leader gets on it on the start straight the bigger the tow he’s gives everybody behind the more of a sitting duck he is at turn one. For me he thought about it and did the right thing , unfortunately Hamilton had more battery and a tie anyway

It would definitely be a step up on Barcelona. For a radical departure from tradition, how about replacing Monza? It has a few good corners and lots of slow chicanes.

I thought he wriggled a fair bit when asked the direct question about why Albon hadn't been confirmed for next year.Before finally admitting that there was a long contract in place that needed the team's confirmation of the seat.


I thought the circuit had a lot more going for it than some of the Tilkedromes that have been foisted on us over the years.Maybe it could be included on a list of those hosting a European GP in future years.


I am curious as to how the Hamilton shirt saga will play out.The tradition of no political statements from the podium has led to repeat visits to races hosted in places with extremely dubious human rights records.Liberty and the FIA might be more than a little nervous of a repetition.It has to be said that the USA might be a little less welcoming after a high visibility criticism of it's law enforcement personnel.

Does anybody know what the cause of Sroll's puncture was debris or wear as I have seen no mention of it ?

While preparing the chequered flag for the end of the penultimate race of the day at Donington yesterday, one of my colleagues told me that I'd better have set my DVR to overrun the Grand Prix recording... So I knew I had something to either get excited, worry, or cringe about when I got home.

Turned out it was all three!

Mugello is a beautiful, non-sterile circuit. The elevation changes themselves are pretty unusual compared to most circuits, and it bites.

But... Well... The race. Not sure what to think, really, the lap 1 incident was just a mess, too many cars in too small a space, mainly caused by the glitch in Verstappen's electronics. That happens. The restart incident I initially put down to Bottas as the leader isn't supposed to weave once they have control, but winding back and watching again it was definitely on those who hung back and wound up for a run on those ahead. Fell squarely into the "what were they thinking?" box, unless what they were thinking was "let's fly into a load of slower machinery and cause ludicrous amounts of damage".

Stroll was unlucky.

Hamilton nailed the restarts and did what he needed to do to win, again. Bottas... what can he do? Probably nothing. Hamilton has him on the ropes.

Albon worked hard for his place but definitely benefitted from the carnage (as did Gasly and co last week).

I might have to watch it through again when I'm not nodding off though! Just to be sure, like
