    WOO HOO!!!

    F1's back. I wish we still had Hobbs, Varsha and Matchet as commentators.

    TALON got box seats to watch practice and I'm envious.

    Lots of surprises in qualifying, but a McLaren in Q3 tops all!

    A pretty slow race until late into it. For a while, the only action was Giovanni trying to protect Raikkonen. Finally, some passing at the business end of the field when Verstappen got by Vettel. Speaking of Vettel, what was up with the team calling off Leclerc? Let the boys race, Ferrari!

    The end of the race was enlivened by the battle for fast lap. Come on, Bahrain!

    Man, Hamilton doesn't like getting beat by Bottas! He didn't say 2 words to Bottas after the Azerbaijan race . He was willing to talk to Vettel.

    Poor Charles. He had the weekend in hand right up thru Q2 and his little oopsie.
    Its good to see Kimi being as competitive as he is in a not so superior car.
    Wish Ricciardo would have better luck. Not seeing the usual permanent-grin that he usually wears.
    Kubica, coming back, is awesome but what a crapper That Williams missed the aero boat so badly. Hopefully they’ll introduce a better upgrade package soon.

    Well that was an interesting race. Boring for the most part but taking the win away from Vettle was very uncool. I don't think anyone was truly happy with the results. Even Hamilton said that's not the way he wants to win.Boy, I wonder what sort of fines and repercussions Vettle's gonna get from the FIA after not parking the car where he should have, switching the signage between his empty spot and Hamilton's car, not being present for the interviews and such. Can't say I blame him one bit, though.

    that was a BS call, it's hard to say that Seb didn't do a little block on his entry but it could also be that had he tried to keep it left he may have lost the car and taken them both out.
    in my opinion they should have told him to let Hamilton by and fight back for the position. What could have been the best race of the year with Hamilton fighting for the position was ruined, Hamilton would have been stupid to then risk crashing out of an on track position when he knew we wins if he can see the car in front.

    but Hamilton was asking for Mercedes to ask for a call from the stewards, a win is a win. Was he sincere about saying he would have preferred to win from the front position, yes, will he feel badly about it every time he looks at the trophy, not a chance, it's all for the record books. I place all blame on the FIA.

    I just watched the British race again, and was that one of the best races in a long time? Action all through the field, and a ton of nose to tail battles. It may have just been a one off, but the cars were able to run much closer together. I'd go into all the battles on track, but I'd have to watch again with a note book. Gasley finally looks like he's come to terms with the Red Bull.

    Agreed. The last two races have been quality.
    The British GP was exceptional - other than the MB crew just waltzing away.
    The Verstappen/LeClerc battle was stellar.
