Formula 1 British Grand Prix. SPOILER ALERT !!
« on: 14 July 2019, 16:28:09 »

I know F1 has massive underlying problems, but today at Silverstone it produced a superb race. Im sure even TB enjoyed it.
Wheel to wheel battles all over the place and Hamilton winning a record 6th British GP.
Couldn't have asked for much more. :)
Time for Vettel to hang up his helmet I think. Hes now so desperate Im almost embarrassed for him.  :D ::)

Why anyone would want to watch the grass grow at the tennis or cricket is beyond me.  ::)

In order to avoid the whole shite, including the traffic issues this week and next, I've ensured I'm an awful long way from it ;)

I believe this year is the last one there :)

Great race. Felt sorry for Lando.

10 sec penalty when already at back of field. That is a joke.

I thought Silverstone had resigned for six? Years more with F1.

Its possible I've missed something, but I thought they were trying to wiggle out of it, using a break in the contract, due to costs.

Five year deal signed four days ago.

It would have been unthinkable not to have Silverstone in the calendar. At one point they were planning a stupid London race.

I always much preferred Brands Hatch, but elf n safety would never allow them to race there now.
Yep, Vettels penalty was a joke. He should have got a one race ban imo.

Bit jammy with the safety car.
WTF were Mercedes thinking about, pit stopping him with five laps to go?

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

One race ban would have been more appropriate. Trouble is the fans would be denied him racing.

Maybe best thing for everyone would be for Vettel to hang up his gloves during the summer recess and for Ferarri to hire Alonso for the rest of the season. He could help bring on Leclerc too. Plenty of good up and coming drivers to fill the spot next year.

They had to pit Bottas as he chose to run the same tyres on the first stop. Maybe he didnt like the uncertainty of different tyres ? Plus the game plan would be to get one point for fastest lap on those new tyres. Shame Hamilton did it on old tyres. The mark of a great driver.

Or, at least, the penalty to be applied at the next Grand Prix.

My daughter went there for the weekend with her 3 kids, where the middle one, whose 10th birthday is tomorrow, is mad on F1 & that was his birthday treat. Callum in years to come will be able to say, I was there when history was being made. :y :y :y

Vettel after his number 1 driver track position advantage where Leclerc has to yield is now only 3 points ahead of him in the drivers standings. Not sure Vettel will cope with the pressure here on in. :-[ :-X ;D

Ah, I've not been home in that time, so missed out on the local gossip.


Grrrrr

Never mind that. Watch the race. I think you will be pleasantly surprised for once.  ;)

From what I've heard, there were 20 laps or so where Leclerc and Max were going at it well. Silverstone is normally around 70 laps?

I think it should be wheel to wheel, flat out, no stops, hell for leather, biggest balls wins, for the complete whole race. Without false aids.

I completely agree, but within the restrictions they are confined to, the drivers produced a really good race yesterday. :y
