    Will the ugly Goomba kneel for the anthem? I hope not. Will Count Von Messerschmidt have something devious up his sleeve?
    Bring on the circuit of the Americas..!

    Where is R154...? I thought there was a Beyond Sausage party at his place for this race?


    Murcia....!!!!!

    Alonso extends his McLaren contract 1 year (rumoured longer).
    Verstappen extends with RBR until 2020.

    Alonso contract is rumoured to be 1 + 1.
    Lewis said he won't take a knee but who knows.
    I'm sure the FOM has told him to keep his nose out of it.
    The Max signing is a bit surprising to me, contract must come with a bunch of performance clauses.

    Don't miss the driver's parade. It's either going to be epic, or cringeworthy. No inbetween.

    I can't stand TSN either, especially when they do their PIP ads.

    Trust me, it's better than NBC which feels like they have 30% more commercials with no PIP. I like having both in that I can flip back and forth to minimize commercial time.

    Can't wait till F1 streaming becomes a reality. With TSN on yearly contracts and US NBC contract expiring and moving to ESPN next year, I'll bet F1 has provisions to allow them to sell F1 streaming packages as soon as it's available. Basically cut off my CDN TV subscription for good.

    FOM is in talks with Netflix.
    Might just be for a catalogue of past races and not streaming.

    Was about to ask if there was a subscription service like MotoGP has. Hopefully that makes its way to market. The ads kill me, especially when there is battles going on, or pit stop drama.

    I wish they would do the same with the soccer where you can pick which camera you want to watch.

    So Hamilton tops the Free practice. Vettel is in 3rd place. There is a lil hope that LH can wrap this up this weekend.

    There's a good chance he'll wrap it up. Vettel is going to be on the offense and do something stupid, or his Ferrari will break down again lol.

    Seems that way, he was complaining about a loose front end in today’s practice, they brought the car in and tore the front axle appart.

    I wanna know what kind of pixie magic they’re trying to run that melted a spark plug but not the valves or cylinders

    New tub is now being fitted to Vettel's car. Might've cracked it when he spun around or maybe the other way around.
    I really doubt Lewis will wrap up the title this weekend as much as I want to. Even if he wins, i doubt Max will get in between Lewis and Vettel. Bottas has been nowhere and Ric could potentially get in between.
    Wouldn't mind LEwis wrapping up the title though, at least I'll be able to watch the remaining races calmly.
    But then again crazier things has happened, just look at the last 4 races.

    EDIT: In regards with the spark plug I'm guessing it's just a manufacturing defect. Merc was notified about the spark plug as well, the difference is that they were able to replace theirs before the car reached the grid. Ferrari decided not to do it and take their chance as they wouldn't have had time to make the change.

    Well, the stage is set for Tomorrow. Hamilton continues to slowly eat away at Shumachers Legacy.

    I always undervalue the effects of a tailwind at a race track, There's been a few times I've almost ate a concrete wall on my bike because of it. I could only imagine what that does to an F1 car.

    I hope Vettel wins tomorrow, but the Merc Ace is looking on point as usual.

    Didn't even bother to watch qualifying on Saturday because I knew Lewis owns this track. Watched it this morning just to see how Hartley and Sainz would do. Too bad Nico never set a Q2 time for a true qualifying battle.
