Someone explain: the top three qualifiers did their interviews without masks, while their interviewers were masked.

Have all the drivers been vaccinated?

Ham on pole, Perez and Max second and third, Bottas eighth....

Am I the only one wondering how Russell would have done in that car?

RB wanted a driver who could keep up with Max and help him fight the Mercedes. Will they order Checo to let Max past?

Stroll just into Q3 but Seb out in Q2. Those rule tweaks have hurt the Aston.

Not a... You know.

Dsmn it
turn on the tv and first thing I see is the 2nd runner up in the 2020 all Italy Barton Fink cosplay contest.
 
2021-04-18 8:31:46 AM  
And the skies have opened up at Imola, so a lot of teams may be making a quick pit stop to some wet tires.

I was about to say "No, because of the split strategies on tires". And then it rained.
 
2021-04-18 8:35:44 AM  
what are the chances for 3 safety cars?
 
2021-04-18 8:36:22 AM  
LMAO Stroll already on fire
 
2021-04-18 8:37:53 AM  
Boat-ass just had a tire puncture during the warm-up laps, so he is going to have to make a tire change before the start... which will probably result in a penalty, as you are supposed to start with your qualifying tires.

Oh, boy, clownshoes already and we haven't even gotten to lights out.

Ham usually gets a lot of support from Boat Ass, while Verstappen was usually on his own, it's nice to see fortunes reversed in that regard.
 
2021-04-18 8:40:21 AM  
My hope is that the race is better than last year's sleeping aid. Comfortably the worst of the Italian races in 2020.

They're doing repairs right now to see if they can get the car in shape after the rear right brakes actually caught fire and melted things

They're using wets, I don't think he will get one

And Vettel had the same thing happen, so *both* cars are now in the pits getting worked on.

F1's announced a Miami GP starting next year. There's a 10-race deal in place with the venue.

They should've "reverse-engineered" some non-explosive cars.
 
2021-04-18 8:42:23 AM  
And now more rain is incoming... this is gonna be a clowhsoes start for sure.

Wasnt the thing they copied from Merc the brake ducts? I guess since they had to design their own for this year, it just sucks.

Which race is being dropped from the calendar,  Mexico? I know AMLO dislikes F1 for being too... classist or some shiat like that.

Yes, and they were told they couldn't use that plan this year.

Maybe Aston did copy Merc's brake design...


Also, wow... F1 cut away from the kneeling drivers...

It'd be the most AMLO thing to do.

Of course the Italian national anthem sounds like something from an opera.

Good morning, good people. Happy 2021. Was traveling and watched round 1 on delay.

Oh boy - wet start!

Not going to happen. F1 is going to keep every despotic date on the calendar. They'll drop Canada before they do that.
 
2021-04-18 8:47:58 AM  
Lando doesn't get a tent.

Nope, they pay too much bribe money to the rights owners. Mexico is probably the one that is going to get dumped.

That's news to me. When was the last one-car operation? Early 90s?

Sounds like the jets are doing flybys to dry off the track.

Are they keeping CoTA?

Mazepin spent more time putting in his earbuds than he will on the track.
 
2021-04-18 8:51:39 AM  
Force Stroll's car is burning because their race plan depended on rain. Study it out.
 
2021-04-18 8:52:11 AM  
Let's see if Mad Max can avoid pulling a Mad Max move at the quite-wet turn 2 on lap 1...
 
2021-04-18 8:52:30 AM  
Why do I suspect the careful attention of the umbrella handlers is less out of concern for the drivers, and more to save the 10th of an oz that might be gained from a soggy suit.

I like how we have our own "Driver of the Day" when we smart/funny posts like these.

Verstappen taking out Checo would be wild. Hope that doesn't happen.
 
2021-04-18 8:53:09 AM  
Ah, rain. God's hint that he wants to see some hijinks on lap one.
 
2021-04-18 8:54:41 AM  
Is Lewis butt-dialing Bonno?
