    To be fair, Alonso did raise the issue before since other drivers may have inadvertently benefitted from this previously. And because there was no concrete directive regarding the issue despite his having raised it, he decided to use it to his advantage.

    Mark of a true champion. hehe

    Qatar to join F1 calendar in 2021, as country signs additional 10-year deal from 2023

    Qatar’s Losail International Circuit will hold its first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix on November 19-21, with the country set to host the 20th event of the 2021 season, as well as signing an additional 10-year deal to host F1 from 2023.

    The Qatari circuit is most famous for its association with the world of two-wheeled racing, with Losail having hosted the MotoGP series since 2004. Ooredoo, the international communications company, will be the title sponsor for the event.

    The race’s inclusion on the calendar will create a three-part Middle Eastern ending to the 2021 season, with the race in Qatar followed up by the first ever Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on December 3-5, with the season rounded off by the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 10-12.

    Oof, rare mistake from the Mercs for HAM. BOT-VER-PER for Istanbul.

    The next 3 races will be brutal for us here (PHT) in terms of session and race starting times. :cry:

    Lewis sounded pissssssed. Jenson called it right, Lewis seemed to think he'd come out higher up the order when he left the pit.

    Leclerc on the radio: “If we stay at this pace, what are we looking for in terms of position?”

    Engineer: “If we can keep Bottas behind, P1.”

    I laughed out loud when I heard that. Surely a candidate for the WTH did you just say award.

    Subscribed to the F1 TV Pro (monthly) this past weekend, and man, I realized I've been missing half my F1 life.
    I can see real time track locations, micro-sector timing (sector within a sector purple times are so cool!), and tire strategies, among other things.

    Super worth it.

    Saaaaaaaaaaaaame! The way I watch is my phone casts the broadcast view to the TV while I switch between driver tracker and/or live timing (to show sector times, tires, intervals, etc).

    I know! I had my phone and laptop beside me and I was watching sector times real time, and I was noting lap times even before Croft, Karun and Jenson would call them out. Soo coool.

    That tingly feeling that this season will be decided on the last race of the season.

    That was a tense win for VER. I marveled at how big the crowd attendance is.

    Celebrity attendance is a big boost in publicity for the sport especially if they are big names. However, they should not let celebrities roam the starting grid and act like they are the star of the show.

    I'm not even sure these "celebrities" are F1 fans. Likely there for publicity.

    Martin Brundle thug lifing on one of these again so-called celebrities when he was denied an interview with whoever TF she was. :ROFLMAO:
