    Tried to watch the albon onboard but it is just blank and 10 hours long on f1tv. Norris onboard was neat though with the input on when to use overtake and for how long.

    I watched Norris and Hamilton/Bottas onboards through the race. Interesting that DAS isn't used in the race at all. Was only used during SC periods. Looks like it was configured for tire warming and not straight line speed/tire management. Seems like a heavy weight penalty for just tire warming. Wonder if they'll be using it differently in future races.

    I forgot to even watch out for DAS. Getting the tires up to temp faster after the sc car would be a big especially running on harder tires. I wonder if it was maybe the track temps being high that they didn't need to use it during normal running.
    Will be interesting to see also when RB fits there since from the rumors make it sound like it is ready to go if it was deemed legal.

    This is what you’re supposed to do on the outside when given less room:

    Notice that HAM was going to go for it, but because he was well behind he didnt do it. Albon was well ahead so he did do it. Totally different IMO.

    Also, your pic of turn 1 doesnt really count given that there is a run-off area unlike the gravel trap on the turn in question.

    Look guys, theres no sense of arguing about this because nothing will change and Ham accepted the penalty because he f'ed up. Shall we move on?

    Time and time again, being ahead by a wing has nothing to do with it when racing for position. It's just considered side by side. Albon might've won the race if he just used all the track. Again, if one is entitled to the track for being slightly ahead, then why even race? Everyone that's being passed will take up as much room as possible. Some like Max and Leclerc won't even give any room whatsoever and force you off the track, which oddly enough doesn't get penalized nearly enough. At the end of the day, it's just wildly inconsistent, and mildly annoying. I've always had the same stance here, just looking for consistency, and penalizing on the crime, and not the outcome.

    Come on man, there's 5 days before the next race. How else are we supposed to stay entertained?

    Looks like Alonso's back in 2021. Poor Zhou, he was doing pretty good in F2.

    Looks like Vettel is out of options. Maybe Lewis retires after getting beat by Bottas.

    Word.

    I don't think HAM should've been penalized but I wanted Lando to get podium so I'll let that go.

    ALO to Renault?! Sheeeeit

    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.

    for you. for the video. It shows Albon on the curb. That's wrong. If he was on the curb he wouldn't have ended up in the kitty litter.

    Lewis can retire after he wins two more championships.

    Rumors are that tomorrow seats will change early. Vettel could be out or spiciest rumor is that he goes to RBR. I don't want to see my boy on the sidelines.
    I would feel the worst for sainz though having to switch from a competitive car

    I saw that rumor this morning too. Picking up steam.

    Vettel to RBR would be hilarious, feel bad for Albon if that’s true. Feel bad for vettel too as he’ll get smoked by Max. Can’t see it happening tho, there is zero reason why rbr would want to pay more for vettel when Albon is doing so well.

    I agree about Albon and Vettel not going to RBR. Unless Bottas is getting the boot, I don't see Vettel having a seat next year. But I do see him waiting it out and coming back in 2022 at a top team.

    I am neutral on this and would have much preferred to see Alonso with Redbull. Honda is too salty though.

    With that said which driver pair do you see mounting a challenge to Mercedes. Max/Vet or Max/Alex?

    The change would be a tough one for Albon but at least he will be able to relate with Gasly or Kvyat...
