Any fans here?
Will Leclerc steamroll the competition?
Is Ferrari back to winning ways?
Is Russell really second in the championship after 3 races?
Is the highest placed previous champion in 5th?
What is going on?

Russell is the new #1 at Merc. Lewis is just done. It is painfully obvious that his heart isn't in it. Sure, the car stinks, but great drivers elevate the bad car, like Senna at Lotus, or Alonso at Ferreri, or Kimi at Sauber. His race at Imola was pathetic. I am a Ferrari fan, always have been and I am glad to see them have a car that is competitive, but their race management needs a lot of work. LeClerc is great but the choice to put him on soft cost way more than it gained at Imola.

New car regulations certainly have mixed the field up, and there is good racing in the mid pack.

Found this interesting F1 Inverse WDC standings. Basically who's been the worst performing driver so far. Disclaimer, not all are where they are because of something they've done.

Does someone have tickets for the American F1 next weekend?

No I didn't want to deal with traffic and the overpriced tickets. Sitting in the AC watching on TV = priceless. You see a lot more too btw...
The coverage was excellent with no commercial interruptions and they showed a lot of the background stuff incl. that idiot reporter... :rofl
We also have F1 tv so we could pick any driver we wanted to follow using the on board cameras. Handy when the yellow flag came out. Both Max and Charles gave an excellent performance. To me it was a huge success .

Good race in Montréal. First half was a bit slow but I’m glad Max won ,but the last couple of laps were close… Carlos Sainz did a great job putting the heat on the Redbull driver…

What I saw was good. When things settled down, I had to rest my eyes from the 125 miles woods ride yesterday. Listened though.
