Summer break.... For all the peddling that the new regs have improved it, the whole thing is still too predictable. Was good to see 3 teams in the fight last couple of races though, would be even better to have 4 up there with an actual chance of winning.

Very strange choice by the team.
Maybe Merc are starting to edge Lewis to the exit door?

What's the point of this circus anymore? It has not been a competitive sports event for a long while now. A team develops and dominates for about 10 years. That team regresses and another moves forwards and dominates for about 10 years. Meanwhile they play with rule changes like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic but nothing makes the race a sport.

I’ve started watching GT 3 races, endurance racing and btcc. The F2 is better than this as well.

Maybe F1 should buy Adrian Newey's contract and then loan him out to a random team every year.

And yet it's more popular than it's ever been.

I have some sympathy with where you're coming from, but in a world where the excesses of the past are no longer acceptable (both technically and economically) the unfortunate by-product of a static set of regulations for 4/5 years is that the team that nails those regs in year 1 is highly likely to be the team to beat throughout.

If you want lots of overtaking, there is lots of motorsport out there for you, but as the pinnacle of getting a car to go around a windy track as quickly as possible it's pretty spectacular.

Verstappen and Red Bull are at the absolute top of their game but it’s a boring old watch this season. It was done after the first corner today.

I reckon it's nigh on thirty years since I bothered watching a F1 GP

It’s all a bit made for Netflix at the moment. Proper yawn fest
