2020-21 Formula 1

The new season is upon us. Time to bury the 2019 thread and start a new one.

My random predictions:
1 HAM, 2 VER, 3 BOT
Bad year for McLaren and Renault
Two podiums for Sergio Pérez
Black flag for Leclerc
Williams will beat Haas
Many LOLFERRARI's to be had

Hopefully we will not lose any more races to that stupid virus.

Looking forward specifically to Spanish GP, which I will assist live

Lmk when the new Netflix season comes out. Always found f1 really boring when one team's cars are dominant but the reality show version is entertaining.

Scored VIP tickets to Melbourne because people can't make it from China. Will post some pics if it doesn't get cancelled or done without publix.

I am not a fan of Formula 1 but the two seasons of Formula 1 on Netflix were really good. It seems to be the team with the most money wins though it sounds like they are doing something about it.

Shocked me to learn the difference in salaries for the #1 driver and #20

re: 2020-21 Formula 1

I have finished Drive to Survive season 2 and I was a bit disappointed.

I think there was too much Ricciardo. I like him, but his story wasn't interesting and he doesn't have the guts to say why he really left Red Bull (Reason is: I want to be World Champion and I cannot do that in the same car as Max. Ferrari and Mercedes are unavailable, so I hoped to luckbox Renault having some miracle car for 2020. Oh and the money is good).

They didn't include the Vettel/Leclerc incident in the chapter about Ferrari.

Some background comments on the Vettel/Hamilton and Verstappen/Leclerc incidents would have been interesting imo. Verstappen not being punished set a really important precedent.

Norris should have provided material for at last half an episode. His bad luck and character makes it really hard not to like him.

I think Gasly, Hubert, Hülkenberg and Williams got covered really well.

Lauda got covered less well and they didn't say a word about Charlie

re: 2020-21 Formula 1

I can hardly wait for the weekend.

Bahrain, no fans, that’s going to be strange, maybe, maybe not. Nobody on the grid will be weird.

Is the F2 race still on?

I wonder how Ferrari will be affected by the lockdown in Italy. I guess, “I’m with the F1 team” gets you past many roadblocks.

The people are already in Melbourne so cancelling only moves them to pubs and clubs where transmission is more likely. I am biased though as I just landed in Melbourne.

McLaren withdrawing from the race. A member of the team is coronapositive.

That is really bad news.

This might become a very short F1 year.

Bored in a Melbourne hotel with some paddock passes that now only look pretty. This was so badly managed. Took ages for the news to get out this morning that it was cancelled.

re: 2020-21 Formula 1

I know it's not the same and I feel bad for everyone who travelled to Melbourne but for the rest, the F1 YouTube channel is really quite good. Obv loads of idiots in the comments who think they're better drivers than, you know, the drivers, by if you need to keep yourself entertained for a bit, it's pretty good.

Also I only recently discovered that there's Nürburgring Crash compilations on youtube and my life is much better for it. Delightful stuff.

Nurburgring is the greatest track OAT, the old one.

This clip is peak insanity imo
