    I love the genuine productions values and the commentary.
    That was weirdly compelling :-)
    That was (surprisingly) great. Who'd have thought it?!

    It's not everyday you race against Juan Pablo Montoya and can say you passed him, even if its because he spun then quit out of the race, he spoke in chat to moan during the first laps.

    I think that music made him spin and quit

    Amazing what hoops they will jump through to try and justify his championships as something more than they are any way they can. Don't remember this sort of talk when it was Schumacher and Barrichello.

    Sounds like Alex Zinardi has been involved quite a serious accident on his hand bike. Currently undergoing neurosurgery :(

    This should be really interesting. Graphic overlays computed from 300 sensors on each car.

    Or possibly complete bollocks, like the tyre graphics were.

    I know, I'm hoping for just the raw data as such, like one cars speed in a corner compared to another, or how much over-rotation the tyres are getting coming out of a corner etc. All appearing above the car in real time. But we're also going to get driver ratings - like a game of Top Trumps or something, which could be a load of bollocks.

    Seat moisture sensor. lol

    But yeah, the data on oversteer / understeer could be interesting, if accurate.

    hey, they are going to be able to tell you stuff that you could see with your own eyes, but with numbers. Or that is of no practical use.

    With 4 GPs coming up in the next 4 weeks NowTVs offer of a month of Sky Sports for £25 looks pretty good

    I canít believe you have to pay extra to get it in HD in 2020

    Another shockingly uncompetitive season on the cards....

    Well, not shocking really.

    Yeah, I'm not going to bother with the NowTV subscription.

    Sure, the midfield might be interesting but the championship is a foregone conclusion.

    Half a second over a lap that takes just over a minute, on a track where they are usually spotty at best.

    Completely pointless.

    Vettel was 19th through the speed trap.

    Basically confirming Ferrari could only catch up with the Mercedes' positive feedback loop by cheating like fuck with their engine.

    A hopeless set of regs and a shame they are going to continue for another year. Roll on 2022 I guess...

    Wow - just watched qualifying. Unless Bottas can keep it together for a season, the championship is done and dusted

    Good to see McLaren near the front, and Williams not (quite) at the back

    Mercedes are making everyone else look like a bunch of semi-professionals, you discount their lap times and the rest of the field is incredibly close.

    We will be in for a good race....so long as the race director doesn't watch the Mercedes cars too much.

    @Psychotext Usually by this point we are nearly at the halfway point in the season, this year the drivers and the teams still won't know what the race pace of their cars is actually like.

    We have a rough idea of the raw pace of the cars tomorrows race could see a lot of mistakes.

    Also the Ferrari is an absolute shitbox. Wonder if Sainz is regretting his upcoming move.
