    It would be amazing if Hulk podiums!

    Pretty much the only thing that makes this race worth watching. Well that and the last few laps when the tires start going Beirut.
    Lolol

    But the midfield this year is so good.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Goddamn first time I’ve seen a tyre strategy work so well for me.

    This week's race was actually entertaining, Red Bull slayed Mercedes with great strategy. Those merc cars were just destroying tires today in the higher track temps, enjoyed hearing Hamilton complain.

    Great drive by Max from beginning to the end, literally top notch. Albon turned it up near the end once he found his pace.

    Feel bad for Vettel and Bottas, both got fucked properly this race.

    Loved listening to Hamilton’s Boo hoo on the radio about the RB tire pressure.

    The Mercedes has big problems in heat. Combination of downforce, rear wing and heat is hard on the tires

    That spin by seb was.....something special. That ferrari strategy though, way worse.
    Great race by max though, wasn't expecting that performance. Softest tires for every race please.

    Feel bad for vettel for sure. Binottos post race comments were mind boggling. Says they pitted vettel so leclerc can clear, blamed vettels spin for his results. Meanwhile their strategy had vettel run a longer stint on mediums than hards. At this point, they’re just out to fuck him.

    As for Bottas, did not feel bad for him at all. He was put on a race win strategy and couldn’t convert. Simple as that. He put zero pressure on max at the second stop when they both came out on the exact same tires. At least Hamilton tried with what he had, a super long second stint where it was maybe possible to go to the end on a 1 stopper.

    Pirelli needs to be more aggressive on tire choice. That was a fun race, even tho McLaren has lost its early season mojo.

    What's everyone's take on the banning of qualifying modes for Spa?

    I personally don't see it as a game changer. Helmut suggested the mode was worth 0.7 - 1 second per lap.

    Might be true but I think it's simply a balancing act as Honda run more aggressive mapping on race day and Mercedes choose to in qualifying.

    I don't think it'll make a big difference but we'll see.
    Williams might be the biggest loser on this as they might be able to make it to Q2 anymore.
