I watched the opening few laps before flying out of town for work. I saw the end of the race at the airport bar, but didn’t have focus as I was getting ready to board my plane.That was a great last 10 laps...Even F1 drivers can red mist ..Russel was so focused on passing Lando he forgot where he was..Plus he was in hotter dirty air at 100% ..Hammo had less tire deg sailing behind him. Still nice to see almighty RB stuck with a slower car and offside tire strategy..
I was not a fan of the pediatric color commentary,,, Maybe for 50% race distance, then bring in the adults..
Also it was nice to hear the Italian Anthem, very stirring and the guys singing, ect..
That was great and the first few laps where for a moment it looked like Norris might have a chance. But it really goes to show that nobody can really challenge the RB over a race distance. I know it seems exciting that everyone is getting closer to RB but they have been developing their cars over the whole year and I think RB stopped dev. at some point and just started working on next years car fully. I still think they are going to crush it out of the gate next year too.Exciting 4-5 laps between Alonso and Perez. 2 more races to the never ending season, somehow Merc is number 2 despite their terrible car for the first part of the season.
Yep. Also a bit mercurial.Alonso is,IMHO, the most complete race car driver in F1 since Senna, Prost and Schumacher. If only he had an Adrian Newey, Honda powered car…
