    I wouldn't say no change, McLaren race pace seems to have dropped off with their latest upgrade as well. Qualifying pace realistically had no change, Alonso made it to Q3 only because he ran Q2 with the softer tires which really fucked up his race as well. Ugh.

    Mercedes was "helped" by Pirelli apparently. They brought modified tires based on Mercedes complaining about blistering in pre-season testing at Barcelona, and the new specification of tire will be used for a couple other races where Pirelli believes blistering will be a problem.

    Grosjean penalty seems weak based on what he did.

    He also got 2 penalty points I later read. Total of 5, on the way to 7 for a race ban.

    The grosjean incident was like a mustang leaving cars and coffee
    They did never televise riccardo spinning. I was wondering why he had dropped so far back from max.
    Also, why is TSN trying to find ways to be more shit. Post race was only on TSN GO as they definitely needed to show sportscenter. . I pay for the channels so I can watch it on TV.

    I heard TSN is shit for commercials during the race too. Lucky I have ESPN, full coverage of the race, without interruptions, thanks to Mother's sponsoring this year. Such a huge improvement in coverage.

    This was also the first race where TSN didn't show the post race show. I get it, there's other stuff that needs to be shown, but they have 5 TSN channels to choose from, and instead, cut off the post race show to show Sportscenter that's repeated on 4 other channels.

    Can't wait till F1 TV is available in Canada in 2020. 1.5 more years!

    TSN's broadcast is getting absolutely ridiculous. In yesterday's race, they had two commercials within a span of 8 laps, iirc. Each commercial interruptions takes two laps and it ALWAYS seems to pop up during critical/interesting times in the race.

    I checked the schedule and there were 3 premier league games, 1 IIHF game and sport center. I hope they paid a lot for the rights as they are idiots. Like yea, tell me more about the RLX. I guess the NSX and RLX are similar because they both move no units a month

    Looks like Pirelli actually ended up helping Ferrari with the tire switch.

    That is a ton of damage, but aren't those the hypersofts?

    If I read correctly , same tires, just more tread depth that retains heat and overcooks them.

    I was just wondering if it was them comparing such a soft compound to the mediums and softs is why these got chewed up so bad. Thought it might be the weather but looks like it was like 20 C there which isn't much warmer than the race was.
