Probably the best sprint race since they started and not just because Merc passed RB.

After yesterday, I was not sure if the race would be as good, and it was even better.  That was a very exciting race.
Lots of bumping, loads of passing.
Huge Congrats to Russel for his first win.  That was also a hell of a drive by Lewis to take second.

Can someone explain to me what happened with Verstappen?  I thought him and Perez were on good terms?

So did I but something must have happened.  I expect the team principle will be having a long chat with him.   Lewis seemed very pleased for Russell and his first win.  During one of the restarts I think it was George who asked if he was to give up his spot to Lewis (not in those exact words) and the answer was 'you are free to race, just keep it clean.'

Yea, I really think Lewis was sincerely happy for George.
He also seemed thrilled with a 1-2 after a very difficult season.

Great race!!!!!

I love that Merc is back in the mix.
I love that Russel got his first win.
It was great watching Hamilton move back up thru the field

I?m not a VER fan. And he did nothing to change that today.

I like a Vettle more now than I did a few years ago and I hope somehow he comes back next year in a good car.

Going to be lots of jokes about Toto staying away for more races.

 LeClerc- if you want 3rd ~ go get it. I get you were put in the wall. But Sainz drove a good race. You can?t ask him to give up a podium.

Sprint Race was great. I?m good with more of those. It was so good to see the joy from HAAS getting pole for sprint. Too bad for KMag he got knocked out early.


F1 needs more like this.

Trouble is very few tracks are built like this and do not allow for the sprint race to be exciting.

So, what are options for streaming F1?

Got to watch a little earlier this year, and I'm curious. Definitely not what it was 5 years ago or so. But, I have no cable subscription, so if I can't stream it I won't watch it. (Says this diehard O's fan, who can't stream even a single game due to licensing rules...)
2005 Chevy Silverado Z71 Crew Cab, LM7 4L60E (What I traded my Kappa for. I regret nothing.)
2012 Chevy Camaro 2SS RS LS3 TR6060.
2021 Ram 2500 Cummins
2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. 3.6, manual trans.

And Max still isn't repenting over the Perez incident.  Quoted as saying " I have my reasons, I have told him and no one else needs to know "  or words to that affect/effect?

That was the best sprint race so far.  Still not a fan of the sprint race though.

Max is a selfish ass. I would have loved to see his pit crew hose him like they used to do to Richardo and cost him the win today just to show him what team work is or isn't.  I guess in the end it didn't matter but that kind of dick move can come back to haunt him.

Russel finished ahead of Ham for the season.

Did his selfish move cost Checo second in the driver's championship?

The points Checo lost in Brazil did not factor in the final outcome of the season.  Perez needed to finish ahead of LeClerc in the race in order to get second place, so he ended up third overall.

Pretty decent season. Looking forward to next year. Hoping for solid competition between big 3? and solid mid pack fighting.

Happy to see Hulkenberg back in F1

Some interesting changes mid pack for next year.
