    I'm partial to Ferrari and Leclerc, so was happy with his 2nd place finish after the team's not-great practices and qualifying.

    Haha, no problem. I was thinking the team might be about to turn things around... but today after Leclerc crashed into Vettel in the first lap and ended up putting both Ferrari cars out of the race, I started thinking that maybe I should just enjoy the races and not root for anyone in particular. :p

    know we don't have an indycar thread and sometimes co-opt this one or the nascar thread, but that was an incredible drive from felix rosenqvist at mid-america in a very strange, wreck-ridden race. indycar has so much good young talent.

    I've gotten into F1! Mostly thanks to Drive to Survive on Netflix but partially becoming friends with a big F1 fan during quarantine. Watched the race Sunday morning, great start and finish. Could have never guessed Ferrari would be out of that so quickly lol

    I think Ferrari will do much better next race in Hungary. They will need to do something about that lack of straight line speed quickly though otherwise they'll be nowhere at the Silverstone races and Monza and Mugello (that would be embarrassing at their own track).

    watching qualifying in hungary, looks like rain will be a thing for the second straight week.

    i know there's only a few of us who regularly post in this thread, but sadly, our group will be without one, going forward. this has been posted elsewhere across the boards, but sith i-5, a longtime user, passed away in early july. he was a big fan of F1, and was especially happy to see it come back.

    send my best to his family and friends - he will be sorely missed.

    Things didn't improve yet, but hopefully sometime soon. It probably won't be a quick change, though, especially since it sounds like almost everything about the cars except for aerodynamics is "frozen" for changes during this limited season. Mercedes seems to have gotten the right mix in "before the lock", and of course it also helps to have a driver as amazing as Hamilton.

    Edit: Ferrari announced a reorganization / restructuring of their technical department today.

    If one good thing has come out of COVID-19, it's F1 at Imola.

    engine won't even fire, looks like. tough for rp and nico.

    edit - insane finish. hamilton rides home on his rim, bottas out of the points. danny ricciardo p4, very nice.

    And Leclerc and Ferrari in P3, pretty good given the recent challenges the team has had. Bottas' tire helped Leclerc be in the top three, though.

    Those last 3 laps were absolutely insane. Just crazy, what could have been times for Verstappen.

    My post about Hulkenberg aged rather badly, maybe this week, huh?

    Racing Point has been fined €400,000 and docked 15 constructor's championship points after Renault's protest over their rear brake duct legality was upheld. FIA ruled that the ducts were a carbon copy of Mercedes' ducts and not the team's own design. However, Perez and Stroll keep their drivers' championship points, and the stewards will allow them to continue using the illegal brake ducts because they cannot "unlearn what they already know".

    Racing Point is considering whether to appeal the decision, and the 2021 regulations will be amended to clarify and tighten the rules on car copying.
