Glad that I tuned in to watch the start yesterday. Utter chaos and then the bizarre sight of only one car lining up on the grid for the restart.

I've always admired Alpine since the Chrysler/Talbot collaboration in the late 70's. Hopefully this will open a path for the likes of Hillman and Simca to return to F1.

My Dad had a Sunbeam Rapier series 3.
What a beautiful car. Those rear fins and red leather seats.
Overdrive aswell.
Very nice.

Strangely enough a mate of mine's first car was a Simca. He does up old cars as a hobby and he was complaining how expensive they are now. Presumably because most of them had fell apart by 1981. ;D

Next years cars should allow for closer racing but itís been a great season this year so far. Plenty of folks moaning about dominance of Mercedes but Williams and mcclaren of the 80s and 90s.......The modern fan who knows nothing about its history is funny to watch on social media. Thank fuck SM didnít exist on the 80s and 90s 🤣

Theyíre going to try to start and race for an hour. Could be entertaining chaos

Most farcical podium ever. Spoilt Dutchman closes the gap by doing nothing.

Iím no Hamilton fan, but it seems wrong that he loses out points-wise after a ten minute safety car controlled pootle around.

Absolute shambles. You can't see any logical rationale for what happened yesterday other than money.
