I don't follow F1 that much, but why was Lewis Hamilton effectively penalised and had to forfeit his 11 second advantage? Almost a certainty to win with only a few laps to complete. A travesty.

Safety cars happen. It's just bad luck. What isn't bad luck though is the race director breaking the rules, rules he publically stated he had to follow in a similar situation last season, to decide the result of the world championship.

Had the rules been followed and Hamilton lost, that's just the way it goes - regardless of the lead he had just before the safety car.

Agreed. Listening to the on board some of the other drives clearly thought it was utter shit too. Lance Stroll, Vettel, Sainz and Danny Ric all saying it was fucked up.

That's the thing for me. I'm going to be biased in favour of Hamilton to almost the degree I am with the Villa. Every independent voice is saying the decision-making by Masi was off.

Itís any stick to beat Hamilton with. Forgetting the tax haven that is Monte Carlo is where mr Verstappen lives. Itís a shit decision by massi in more than one occasion. Sure the Netflix fans love it though. I dropped out of the sport in the mid noughties returning in 2014. Itís all a bit of a shit show nowadays. I really hope the close racing promised in 22 materialises to bust the wdc wide open

New season this weekend - does anyone fancy joining an H&V fantasy F1 league?

It's the most open season we've had in years.

Sky have recruited Naomi Schiff as one of the crew. She talks with authority and looks like a goddess.

Itís good when Sky change-up the team.

I guess that Brundle is at Le Mans, where his son is driving this weekend. Ant Davidson is also there commentating.

This makes Paul DiResta the main co-commentator. Heís a natural replacement for Brundle at some point.

Not sure where Ted is.

Naomi Schiff might not have been quite good enough a driver in the W Series, but sheís a great addition to Sky.

Di Resta is such a red bull fan boy he gets right on my wick.

The new cars that were designed to follow still can't over take

The new floor rules make the cars awful to watch as they bounce about so much, and now I am fairly sure that the bouncing is starting to effect the reliability of some with the engines being pretty sensitive things.

Oh and they are still changing the rules to suit Red Bull as we saw in Monaco last week with crossing the pit lane line. Last season there was a genuine title fight and it was pretty interesting. This season has been largely Red Bull telling Perez to get out the way for Max, Ferrari shooting themselves in the foot and everyone else driving dog awful cars. Garbage season so far.

Silverstone first  lap accident.  Looks serious for Alfa Romeo and Zhou Guanyu.

That was one of the worst crashes Iíve seen in a long time. Incredible that Zhou is ok.

Car was upside down across the gravel, sailed over the tyre barrier and hit the fence protecting the spectators

Good race but totally spoiled by Sky interviewing Richards and Lescott at strolling around Silverstone.
