    LOL, I honestly wonder if you had a smirk on your face when you typed this. Seriously man, you are as biased toward anything Bristish/Mercedes/Hamilton as Daytona355 or myself are toward anything Ferrari. It is not a crime to admit it, but to deny it come on. :)

    Nuvolari carried a record copy of the Italian anthem for luck so it worked out in the end :D

    It's not amazing at all. When I fly at least 50% of the passengers unbuckle when the sign turns off.

    Oh yeh at least 50%.despite advice to keep them on when seated.There is a reason the drivers up front keep them on.But hey if they want to risk injury hitting the roof etc then up to them.

    Sucks for Kimi, though. He drove a heckuva race, for most of it.
    Yes, he had an off-track excursion into the runoff swimming pool that dropped him way back.
    But then, even Max had an on-track 360 spin, at one point. ;)

    If you crash in close proximity to the pit entrance, you're going to try to enter the pits (penalty or no penalty) rather than drive a complete circuit with bits potentially falling off the car. Quite simple and obvious really, and all other drivers would have done similarly.

    I certainly didn't rake Sebastien over the coals last year... but it was mistake made in isolation while under pressure (there may or may not have been mitigating circumstances.) Lewis crash was at least in very good company - on the wrong tire at a particularly chaotic part of the race...and the race unraveled from there. That's racing. Max was best on the day, but also could have very easily ripped the floor off the when doing his 360 over the curbs. The point being the margin between hero/zero in races such as these is often extremely small.

    Apparently he had a victrola in the trunk of his personal car with the Italian anthem record, so he simply carried it up to the public-address microphone and played the record! I'm certain the Germans were suitably embarrassed.

    Great race by Max, Seb, Kyvat and dare i say Stroll, boy did the Mercedes drivers choke big time for their home race, curious how this gets edited in the Netflix show. Max continues to show that he is the best driver right now, Seb is not bad when others actually have to drive hard and I feel for Leclerc, today could have been his had he not gone off. I think today showed again that the strength of Mercedes has made its drivers look better than they actually are and Gasly showed once again that he needs to go.

    "Under pressure" is the usual drivel from the LH44-fanboys in the try to put that as an achievement of Lewis as well... both Lewis and Seb crashed out front, there is ZERO difference. If there is a difference then that Lewis crashed at the very same place as the car in front so he should have been warned and the safety car coming out anyway...how stupid is that???

    And that everybody would have tried to get in the pits does not change that the penalty of 5 seconds compared to the extra lap he would have needed to drive is a joke, especially when you compare it the the penalty the Alfas got for their clutch... how much time did they earn with their start compared to Lewis with that pit entry?
    I love it that the fanboys still want to tell us how great Lewis did finishing and getting 2 points at the stewards table...
    Or how great he was last year winning from the back but at the same time Seb is a "tortoise" only waiting for the track to try up to get his dominant Ferrari in front when finishing 2nd from dead last

    Btw: that stupid comparison of yesterday's GP with Nivolaris win at the Nuerbirgring is hilarious as Toto is far away from being a Neubauer

    We are invested in the team and have a right to have opinions on them. You claim to have no interest in anything but racing, so why do you feel the need to show any interest in individual teams, if you really have no interest in any particular team, why go to bat for Elton so often, and why denigrate ferrari, and of course, wish ill on Schumacher with such viscous evil comment? It shouldn’t interest you to discuss anything bar the actual racing, if we are to believe you, yet you engage time and again against any positive comment about ferrari, or negative about Elton/Mercedes

    Article 1V (4)

    b) During competition, access to the pit lane
    is allowed only through the pit entry.

    d) Except in cases of force majeure (accepted
    as such by the Stewards), the crossing, in
    any direction, of the line separating the pit
    entry and the track by a car entering the pit
    lane is prohibited.

    Not only that, he didn't seem to mind potentially dragging grass and debris into the pit lane.

    Using the word prohibited means something more severe than a mediocre "slap on the wrist" 5 second penalty. That's reserved for "not allowed", Prohibited infers a much harder directive and thus a harsher penalty. Yet more inconstancy from the stewards.

    Jo bauer had to do something to get some points for the chosen one didn’t he, the FIA would have had Toto moaning had they not given some points. I’m just surprised max and Seb weren’t disqualified for being wet at the weigh in, stroll penalised for driving a pink car in such a manner as to cause others to change their tyres, and Kyvat for having the gall to have a baby the night before and not park his car prior to the line in celebration.

    We all knew the season was over at race three, completely over. Tifosi watch on a race by race basis hoping that Ferrari get it together. There is no title fight, anyone who thinks there is needs to see a professional about that, because there’s optimism and then there’s total fantasy..... Races like today are simply fun, and separate the men from the boys a bit. Why the FIA needs to get involved after the race with ******** 30 second penalties for a torque setting is pathetic and makes them look stupid, and Mercedes like poor losers.

    I love the use of the word ‘evaluating’ for describing the sight of a pit crew falling over, tripping each other up, throwing tyres around the garage, whacking each other slapstick style with various equipment, and finally managing to match a set of tyres with the right colours on over the course of FIFTY SEVEN SECONDS, an absolute age in F1 pit terms...... very diplomatic, hehe. Oh, and half of them running about without the regulation safety helmets on. Apparently that itself wasn’t noticed by FIA observers STOOD WITH THESE MUPPETS as no penalty needed to be applied - Lucky none got hit on the head, and it really was more luck than judgement. Still, new Netflix comedy coming out soon for the millennials I guess - the Three Stooges in ‘The Race’

    We also saw several mercedes pit crew without a helmet on during the pitstop. Completely illegal. But zero from FIA.

    Thirty second penalty at least you would think, so Elton comes behind the Alfa’s again..... never going to allow that are they mate.... imagine Netflix title might have to be ‘The Race - Tears of a Clown’ when Elton starts blubbing about deserving points for his spins and crashes, all cos he has a bit of ‘delhi belly’

    convenient no, being ''sick'' the day netflix comes and film? Almost as if he wants the world to know his "greatness".
