Trouble with Touring Cars is that the driving is very unsophisticated at times. Too much pushing and shoving, tapping your opponent into a spin, using the grass on the inside of the corner etc., Enjoyable nevertheless, but I don't take it too seriously.

Great stuff!. Looking forward to tomorrow!!. I think it is going to be his race. His tyre management is the best, and he is very intelligent regarding tactics.

Well that was a enjoyable qualifying,congrats to Sir Lewis ,smashing it again ,very impressive I for one never thought Michael’s records would be matched or beaten for a long while it all seemed unbeatable,but they say records are there to be broken and new ones made ,Lewis is well on the way to being the new benchmark for upcoming drivers in F3 F2 etc ,although as a life long Ferrari fan I must admit a big improvement on last season but just a tad disappointing as Charles looked good yesterday running P3 for a while but looks like P4 good result tomorrow.as ever we shall see
Also good to see Seb (got through to Q3 last weekend)getting to grips with the Aston and Stroll coming on well now to

Better than it could have been, but about as exciting as watching an ocean dry up, as predicted. Don't see the issue with Portugal, less so now.

Excellent tactics. When people complained to Sir Frank Williams about his team making things boring by always winning, I am minded even now of his reply. 'It is not up to us to go slower, but for the other teams to go faster!'
How true!!. Well done SLH and the team.

Just found this video that sums up very well our favourite Russian (the less said about him the better ) ...(In case anyone hasn’t picked it up yes I am being sarcastic....)

People forget about Ferrari's dominance. Teams have periods of domination and collapse. Liverpool, Manchester United etc etc. This is no different!

Great video Max...Just goes to show what money can do in F1 for a team in desperate need.

It does if it weren’t for the likes of Hass and Aston Martin/Racing Point /Force India it would be a very limited field on the other hand ,just could have picked a more suitable driver in my honest opinion...they could have looked into the American market load of good drivers that could have got the seat from IndyCar for instance. ,the likes of Williams ,McLaren and Ferrari are different as I view these as heritage teams and will unlikely never be short on a funding and b talented descent drivers and c never leave F1 ...although given Williams recent situation they had to make a quick funding alternative and almost re start the team from a new perspective.but seems they back on track now

At the moment, between races, the most exciting thought is whether or not Mazespin gets through first practice at Monaco without altering the shape of the barriers!!!.

Right!. Paul Hawkins was the last diver . :)Into the harbour, not the swimming pool. Survived that, lost his life at Oulton Park.
