Especially as there are so few places to shelter at Silverstone it’s so open , had a few drownings there.

Same here but there's also no cover for the sun either.  We've either been sodden wet through or fried to a crisp whenever we've been.

Had to watch it on C4 for the first time in ages. The coverage was shocking. It wasn’t showing half the driver on a hot lap half the time and just showing someone trudging around. Not to mention the comms didn’t even realise someone going faster a load of times too.

I watched C4 yesterday and thought I couldn’t handle that again.

Think the cool down lap by Mercedes the lap before their last one was too slow so the tyres were cold.

Tried too hard to be late across the line rather than keeping temperature in the tyres.

Crowd are probably happy for ABV (anyone but Verstappen).

Well you know what the locals feel about Verstappen... when they cheer on a Ferrari. At Silverstone  ;D

Having said that, it's a lucky pole but I'll take it. Will be very difficult to convert this into a win tomorrow for either car but sets up a double podium nicely.

I don’t have sky on the TV upstairs which is the only reason I ended up watching it on C4. Won’t be making that mistake again.

Ferrari have always had good support in Silverstone even going back to the Schumacher days and even after the run ins with Hill.

Yep, and the commentators making a good point that the sausage kerbs used on tracks are actually dangerous in these situations as they act as a ramp to launch the cars. Seems this incident really showed that. Would expect the FIA to do something about those kerbs based on this example.

I think it's some local time difference and also to cater to the US market. Having said that, in summer a 4 pm local time start in mainland Europe is totally fine if you have a three-hour limit to get the race in. Personally think the three-hour limit is totally bogus and it should be determined by daylight viability. There was absolutely no reason to hang the chequered flag out at 6 pm a few laps early in Monaco.

However, with the way convection works it's usually a bad idea to have races stretch through the latter parts of the afternoon. Especially in mainland Europe this is when thunderstorms build up and release. Therefore I'll always prefer 2 pm CET as the race start no matter what.

Remember this one from F3 in 2019?

YouTube auto-ran into this video, and it's amazing to think that the drivers got away pretty-much injury free in most of these - the impact of the Webber and Schumacher incidents in particular.

Didn't know you did this, Rob - we've a family friend who used to drive trucks for Goodyear, McLaren, and Williams.

Still got fond memories of my first visit to Silverstone, for a test session in 2003 - we were able to get into the garage and I had my hand on Montoya's seat whilst looking down the footwell at the pedals at one point. Can't believe that over 19 years ago...!

You have to sign up for Special Operations before the start of the season, we work for Mercedes, I don't do it, but this week they were looking for additional drivers to help run the trucks over after the race today and I missed the bloody message on the app  :butt :butt :butt
