I finally caught up to the latest changes in the engines. For anyone who got as far behind as me, they are 1.6 liter V-6s with a single turbo and a rev limit of 15,000 rpm. I understand they have a hybrid aspect to them and fuel consumption is down by 35 percent as they recover energy in the hair pin turns. I would use Canadian Tire Formula 1 Full Synthetic in a 0W20 in honour of the Canadian Grand Prix. laugh

I reckon that'd be a bit heavy.

Read here for a possible explanation as to why the grid walks seemed more disjointed than before. Let's see how it goes from Canada onwards, with drivers having to spend an extra ten minutes on the grid for media access.

There's one thing to remember, though. Alonso's ability to predict a winner in F1 hasn't extended to him being able to predict which team to join, ever. The only chance he's had in the past 10 years is his current ride in WEC, where he's on the only LMP1 works team, so it's virtually impossible for him to fail completely.

It seems to me that without Flavio leading him around by the nose, he's lost.

I like how they are showing the anthems before the race. Sky probably did it all along but we never saw them here except for the US Grand Prix.

The foundation has been laid for Alonzo to move to Indycar. I don't think you have to go out on a limb too far to say that's where he'll be in 2019.

I enjoy F1, but 90% of the time, after the first 4 or 5 corners, it becomes a snooze fest.

Especially if Toyota holds it together long enough to win Le Mans this year.

The WEC shouldn't be a a challenge, and the team has already showed it will employ team orders to ensure the #8 car prevails.

That will leave the 500 on the list.

Yes, that's been the norm for some time, even when we had BBC coverage.

The real question is if he can live up to his history of joining the worst possible team. It was too bad to see him retire this weekend. Max kept his head down for a change, and it paid off. Stroll definitely knows how to start a race. It's a pity he can find any bit of bad luck that Fernando doesn't pick up beforehand. Hartley handed off another coffin nail to Dr. Marko, I suspect. I'd agree this was a racing incident, but it was a pretty foolish thing to try in the first place. Getting past Stroll later down the road isn't too much of a challenge that you have to press your luck between him and a wall. Wait for his inevitable lockup or wide run, and you're away.

In any event was nice to see all the Sky guys (aside from those who actually have raced and don't have an apparent agenda, so that group excludes di Resta and is really only Rosberg, Hill, Herbert, and Brundle) and even the Motorsport group ignore Ferrari in general and Vettel in specific and wind up looking clueless again.

Martin Brundle put it best near the end of the race when he told Crofty that Vettel wiped the floor with the entire field. Speaking of the race end, that flag bit was a fiasco.

Regarding the flag incident some poor FIA bureaucrat will probably be found dead at his desk Monday morning over such a disastrous infringement of the rules/procedure/etiquette. They've always struck me as the type who want to have all the deck chairs looking neat as the ship goes under and THIS (or should I say, Zeese), can not happen. Sacre bleu! It is a dangerous thing to have happen but I comfort myself with the thought that there will be one less FIA guy. The ensuing investigations, meetings results and profound statements will then mercifully be a little slower to arrive as the remaining staff, having found a new reason to live, plan a proper funeral.

Isn't it the ultimate responsibility of Charlie Whiting to direct whomever is the wave the chequered flag? I suppose I could check the rules to be sure, but as race director, I would think it would be his. Did someone roust him from his nap too suddenly and he thought he overslept? wink

I missed the end. And the flag. Actually fell asleep about 3/4 of the way through. Along with Whiting, I guess. And I used to go to the Canadian GP back in the 1990's. It has become way too predictable, after the first few laps. Still think doing away with in refueling during the race was a mistake. The revamp of F1 can't come fast enough for me. The Ferrari of Seb sure looked fast. Merc appeared to be on it's back foot with HAM, with overheating issues and saving the PU.
