I may be wrong but I think it was Jackie Stewart who gave it that name.

Oops. You are right, it was Mr. Stewart.

This is it for me. As a Ferrari guy, I'm pretty much guaranteed disappointment every season. Which is why I'm hoping LeClerc can turn it around a bit.

Haas is just disappointing me thus far, but maybe they'll come back around. At this point I can't put any stock into Grojean. He's a talented driver but entirely too inconsistent.

Looking forward to Baku. Such a fun circuit with surprising outcomes.

Mercedes is unbeatable this year. At least Haas had a double point day and may yet end up fourth in the constructors points.

Man, I stopped watching this stuff a few short years ago and all of a sudden Williams is last in the grid. What the hell happened?

Turbo hybrid era for one and the difference between first and last getting tighter.

Grojean nearly choked again. I really hope he can either figure things out or find a new career in RallyCross or something.

F1 moved on and Williams wasn't able to adapt. It's depressing to watch. I feel really bad for the Williams camp right now

When I started watching in 1994 they were the ones with the best cars in the field....sad indeed how things have changed.

I'd say they where better in 1992 with the active suspension:


The car was just glued onto the track, still I'd say it was amazing what Senna could do in a Mclaren-Honda which was was not good that year:


F1 today gets boring because Mercedez is just dominating with the better car, FIA wanting engines that have become a joke, dumb tyre rules and stupid artificial overtake nonesense called DRS. I'm not denying that Hamilton and Bottas are good drivers but put anyone in the Mercedez that doesn't make mistakes on the track and guaranteed he'd win. So it's more car then Driver and statistics over racing.

Heartbreaking to watch LeClerc take P2 like that, but I have to admit, Verstappen got it honest.

Great race IMO
