First what the hell was Cheko's engineer thinking with track evolution like that saving a set of soft's was stupid. Now you are back with the football hooligans in mid pack and you will be lucky to make it to lap two.

Nice job Ferrari. The car is good and drivers are good but it's still the Ferrari pit wall in the end.

I quite like the 70's red with white lettering but as said before it needs to be the original blood red.

Post-race: no cool down room for the podium finishers - a quick excursion to the lavishly glitzy Bellagio for the post-race interviews.

William Shakespeare, Othello, Act 3, Scene 3:
"O farewell,
Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump,
The spirit-stirring drum, th’ ear-piercing fife;
The royal banner, and all quality,
Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
And O you mortal engines, whose rude throats
Th’ immortal Jove’s dread clamours counterfeit,
Farewell! Othello’s occupation’s gone."

Rotten to the core, it shouldn't depend on what just one particular team says.

I heard about these stringent new post race rules before being made up by Ben Sulayem.

Only fans that had a separate ticket for fp2 get that voucher.
People with a multi day pass get nothing.

These fans are getting swindled. Not only money back, but they of course also made expenses. Hotel, dinner/drinks etc, and only some of them get a voucher for the shopwhere they maybe can buy a hat and a Tshirt that cost $5 to produce....
To me, this is F1 at it's worst. There are companies behind this that are worth billions, and hundreds of millions are being made this weekend.

IT's good that a triple world champion that currently leads the field with double the points speaks up for both the fans here, and also for the situation regarding SAI, that the rules must be changed so that exceptions can be made for damage not your fault, and that teams in general shouldn't even have a say in the rules regarding such matters. period.
I wish more drivers would express their thoughts about this so openly and that the media would pay more attention to this.

The track might not be very challenging/interesting from a sporting pov, but I like the venue, it can yield/produce good video. But the way it's now going, this race is just a shame for sports in general.

If Ferrari has a chance somewhere, it's here.
With the temperatures and slick asphalt, tyre degradation is less of an issue, and as it's such a high speed track, the difference between normal high speed and high speed with DRS (one of RB's strong points) is not so much of a difference.
Ferrari just has to keep their heads cool and don't f#ck up with some stupid strategy or pit error, and they might have a real chance here.

Long runs on the ferrari's looked pretty good.
In monza the ferrari's were also pretty strong, but there it was hot. Here it's cold with more slippery asphalt.

You mean driver rooms and rooms from F1 teams?!?
WTF?

As if these guys didn't have enough on their heads, having to wait 5 hours, driving late at night etc.
Both drivers and teams need their rest. Tomorrow they're going 350kph+ on the track. Both drivers and teams need to be rested and awake. Everything on the car has to be tip top...

BTW, as there is apparently no cool down room moment, is that some scheme to prevent drivers to speak their minds right after the race by the organisation?
Because that scene is totally uncontrolled. the cooldown room is broadcasted live with no guidance for the drivers. they're alone in there I believe.
