Have to say, I disagree with George Russell on the incident. VB comes across from left to take line, stops when he realises Russell is there, Russell's already shat himself, puts two wheels on grass and that's all she wrote.
Agree wholeheartedly with @theinventor about the smacking of Bottas' head as well. VB is still in the car, unknown if he has a neck injury and whilst the blow had as much force as a fart, it's still a stupid thing to do, regardless of who was at fault.
I loved GR's outing in the Merc last year, handled it very well and made VB look a little bit pedestrian, despite having vastly more experience than GR.
I see that he hasn't calmed down his rhetoric even some time after the race. I suggest Toto gets a grip of him and shows him the steering traces from VB's car, showing he didn't turn into him.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who failed to make any sense of that post.
Not to forget the biggest annual event of new multi-million ( billions?) of bespoke Super-yacht commissioning & "used" ships.I don't really watch F1 these days, the only occasion that I might would be Monaco.
It isn't really about the racing, it is about glamour, the setting etc. Cars have been too wide to race properly there since the 1970's. I can't imagine F1 without Monaco.
Close your eyes for a moment and it's a rather pleasant image.
Was it just me or did yesterday's venue look an utter crock of shyte?I humbly disagree.
Whilst the racing at Monaco is really second rate, it is the jewel in F1's crown. A lot of business deals get done there during the unique four day weekend.
The cars look stupidly fast on TV as they navigate the twists and turns of Monaco and there is always the opportunity for an unexpected end to someone's race.
I for one, wouldn't like to see it replaced by another faceless, dull Tilke track with no history behind it.
Very dated old school track that hasn’t had much money spent on it for over 20 years. Tilke designed new pits about 15 years ago, but that’s all.Was it just me or did yesterday's venue look an utter crock of shyte?
Formula 1 will trial shorter Saturday races at three events this year in a new format called Sprint Qualifying after the proposals were voted through by the F1 Commission.www.skysports.com
I'm a bit torn on the above, I am all for a bit of additional wheel to wheel stuff, but not sure how it will work in practice.
