  1. Look out, there comes Maldonado jr…

  2. Turn 4 makes this race such a bore fest any car following another car loses so much time and downforce there that whatever is gained on the straights is just gone, if that long corner wasn’t there this track would be a lot racier..

    1. That corner is one of the best on the entire calender, it really shows what an F1 car can do…

      1. And didn’t we see 2 overtakes in turn 4(RIC on MAG and some other pair) and a few more that happened because someone tried to attack into turn 4 which left them vulnerable into turn 5. (RAI on BOT -> HAM on RAI. And the one mentioned above that gave GRO an opportunity to take RIC).

  3. Seeing what an f1 car can do..? come on.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjbnwPl-8Cs&ab_channel=rferrerF1 to me that is seeing what an f1 car can do.
