Lets hope the safety car domino's fall in their favour for a change given this track


Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.

Wasn't a bad race.

About as good a result for Mercedes as was possible, but I was worried by the way Hamilton struggled to get out of his car. SWMBO moves like that when her lower spine is causing her pain, but she is a bit older than Lewis. Her back has been damaged by falling off horses, the damage is cumulative. The FIA have to sort out the problem before a driver is told by the medics to stop driving.

I feel for Ferrari, 4 out of the 6 ferrari powered cars DNF.

Pillastro back in the rack!!! I think I will need to go back to lemonade. Was this just a false dawn for Ferrari? After all they looked so good at the start of the season. Most unusual for one of their engines to give up like that along with the other Ferrari powered cars. There could be some blood shed in Maranello today.

If you were team manger, as a rule of thumb you'd prefer to be trying to make a fast car reliable (Ferrari) than a reliable car fast (Mercedes).

The bumpy road surface seemed to produce more proposing in many cars, and still almost none in the Red Bulls.

Canada used to be thought of as a bumpy track, because *winters*... iirc there was some resurfacing in recent years: is it enough to help the porpoising cars?

Have to say I was impressed by Vettel - and equally unimpressed by Stroll.

I certainly was Keith to the extent that I have just ordered a case of nice McLaren Vale so as to sympathize with Daniel.

This new directive today is going to hurt Ferrari and Merc big time but well done FIA protecting the drivers must be a priority......

Bringing back this thread

Enjoyed the Austrian GP. Carlos engine blow up is something you don't see very often these days. Looked like cluster trying to figure out how to stop the car and get out without the car rolling away.

And a good result for Mercedes. They are definitely moving in the right direction, but have a little way to go.

And congrats to Charles. He looked very dominant. I even wore my hat in celebration. We'll, sort of wink

A good race indeed, the winner was, if I may say so, Formula 1!

I feel for the Ferrari technicians stripping down that car and power unit to find out what failed first, the fire appeared to be mostly on the RHS. It was spectacular as bits of metal were ejected from the back and side of the car.
