Well Doohan only got 1 Lap...but RIC did well in Quali.

Suck it, Jacque!!
Yea. Seems to have motivated him at last. But let’s see how he does in race. Personally, I’m more with Jacque.. move over and give a younger driver such as Doohan or Lawson a spot.
 
Yes if he doesnt start performing better his days are numbered.

TSU resigned to RB, keep Honda happy...PER to Red Bull, plenty of sponsor $$$ and NO threat to VER...spots are running out...
 
RIC jump start call was a bit rough...but at least he got points and beat TSU.
Always a better race with some H2O added.

Such an enjoyable race!
From start to end, there was genuine racing the whole time. Such a nice chance from Monaco last week.
I love a wet race where strategy really comes into play.

I'm happy, my 2 favs got points for the first time in forever! (Daniel and Pierre - it's been a VERY hard year being a fan).
 
Glad I saw it and the wet track and changeble conditions made it a race of skill and not so much horsepower or DRS, but unfortunate timing that the safety car gifted the lead to Verstappen from Norris, as the Red Bull looked unconvincing in dirty air, but is unbeatable in clear air. Piastrti continues to impress me, he will be beating Norris in quali and race pace soon.

Same here. I was going to skip watching the replay after I heard the results. I did watch the replay on the bus back from Sydney, and it was interesting enough that I didn't skip forward at any time. The whole race was engrossing for a change.

Agreed. RBR definitely don’t have it all their own way now. Clearly they’re still the team to beat, but it’s nice to see that the race isn’t necessarily a foregone conclusion before the weekend even begins.

Well, yes, PER certainly doesn't seem to feature into any sort of podium result these days ;)

Ouch… threaten his contract again. That’ll get some more performance out of him! ;)

Must say I think RIC actually had a decent race too (even if the results suggest otherwise). The RB package was pretty poor all weekend, but I don’t know that RIC could have gotten much more from his Sunday without a safety car intervention?

Fair comment and at least now he is holding his own vs TSU. Hopefully he can keep that consistency going for the rest of the year.
 
PIA did well in the Sprint.
More bad publicity about Jos and Christian. Gotta side with Christian on this one...Jos is hardly a Legend...lol!

Yep, good opportunistic move from Oscar. Ultimately didn’t have the pace for to get Max. Maybe Lando could have done it, but I still feel like Max ultimately would’ve prevailed.

The whole situation with Jos is just childish. Like a toddler who’s been told he can’t have another “wowwipop” :rolleyes:
