I watched the first one haven't watched the second one yet.  I hope things get better than that first race because I am going to get tired of watching the Ver parade real quick.

I picked up F1 TV right before Australia and am fully caught up.
I figured I would give it another chance after watching Last season via the Netflix special

SA
You will like this past weekend's race.    That's all I will say.

Second race Red Bull ran away with it, but 3rd place down had some great racing.
Hell 10-15 was pretty insane
Kudos to the Bearman.   That was a heck of a drive for his first F1 Race

I'll wait for others to confirm they have seen Australia

So far in the off season we have:

Gunther is out at Haas

Ham is headed to Ferrari in a year

Horner is being investigated for misconduct.

Did I miss anything?

What was up with Horner?
I never heard anything.

He supposed to have been inappropriate with a female RB employee.  She was suspended with pay and moved.   Horner appears to me be making a grab for team ownership/control.    Max's dad is against it and is rumored to be the source of the information.

O damn
Never heard about that.

So last race was quite interesting and I think Sainz is doing a great job for his CV. 
Comes back from surgery to win

Apparently Ferrari poached some MB personel for next season which was a big part of why Hamilton is moving to them.

Finally watched Australia much better than the first two.  Did anything come from the Russell crash investigation with regard to Alonso brake checking him?

Is it me or did Max's dad appear not to be in the pits the last few races?

Alonso got a 20 second race penalty. It dropped him from 6 to 8th.

I don't pay attention to who is in the pits much, so I don't know.

Verstappen and RB are still winning, so why would there be drama between Verstappen's father and Horner?
I'd assume people would not want to rock that boat.

Finally got to watch Japan, not much to comment about.  Is Williams going to have two cars for China?

China is this week and Williams still don't have a spare tub.  We will find out this weekend if they have repaired the one damaged.

I don't think it was, they said during the broadcast but I don't remember for sure.  I do remember the one wrecked was the same one that was wrecked before.

So far only 1 Williams
That was a heck of a battle for 2nd place in qualifying.  Sprint was pretty exciting as well.   Some people really got their elbows out in some turns.

You didn't look far enough down the order :)

The actual race was kind of a let down except for the safety car restarts.  I feel for Riccardo he got screwed by Stroll.  Miami is a sprint weekend as well.

Do you think Miami is going to have the 30 min driver intro this year or did they decide to give up that crap?

Nothing like watching a parking lot race with fake boats and water.  You would think they could find some place in Florida that actually had a real marina.

Italy was good as well except for the winner.  Second place was lest than 1 second behind.  McLaren and Ferrari are making great strides.  Hell Hukenburg was in Q3


FWI - Formula 1 is releasing a 24/7 free streaming channel in the US.  It will feature F1, F2, F3, and F3, not sure what all you can watch or when it will be available.
