Latifi starting tenth?

Fark user imageView Full Size


Looks like the race will be dry, and tyre wear will be an issue. Lap when Lewis complains his tyres are gone? Fifth? Second? Parade lap?

Wait, the race starts at 3pm BST, so that should be 10am EDT, shouldn't it?

Yeah, the headline initially said 9am, but some admin's fixed it.

Safety car and bumper, did this just get interesting, or are those misnomers?

I'm sure they put him on tranquilizers before doing these.

I was wondering where our F1 thread was... and Latifi somehow starting in P10 could make things interesting, as even Latifi is amazed at his starting place, and he is not expecting it to last long.

Oh, and Toto once again screwed up, and told Hamilton to back off on his next-to-last Q3 run to make a go at a hot last qualifying lap (said last lap got hit by the rain), costing Ham a shot at P2. Needless to say, Toto probably got an earful from Ham after Q3.

Oh, and the FIA apparently figured out how Red Bull and Ferrari are dealing with the whole porpoising issue: by, possibly, having skid plates and other parts bending more than the rules currently allow on those cars... and that the FIA will start checking on that once the new rules dealing with porpoising go into effect.

He hit the Kimi Raikkonen "racing for the memes" stage of his career.

there's this weird thing that seems to happen with a lot of f1 drivers where the moment they realise they're not going to win titles anymore they mellow out.

Some of the interviews with Schumacher before his ill advised comeback made him seem almost human.

It was his birthday this week. I'm not sure how old he is because I lost my Canadian years conversion chart, but he's most definitely a lynchpin.

I thought it was the suspension going more rigid after a certain speed threshold -- not active suspension per so, but certainly sort of emulating some of the functionality

Good morning, Fark1 Fam!

Hoping for another exciting race. Rain, Mercedes upgrades, Copse, COVID raging through the maskless stands, and Carlos Sainz on pole.

Predictions
- Lewis complained about his tyres this morning
- Latifi 51Gs it at Copse all by himself
- Crofty audibly farts immediately after saying "press the red button" on air
- In the rain, Max falls two spins short of Bottas' 2020 Turkish Grand Prix record of 52
- Vettel gets black flagged after taking the lead because he had Mansell's '92 car painted in Astin Martin livery
- VER LEC RUS

TBF, his son likes driving in sand too.

Looking at the weather radar for the uk, if there is any rain it's not going to last long. Biggest chunk of it passed over the circuit about an hour ago. Lots of small showers in the area though.

Because of course they are.  Listening to Horner and Marko lose their sh*t should be fun.

Pirelli says a two-stopper... so, of course, the teams are all thinking one-stopper (either start on the mediums and then change to the hards early, or start on the hards then change late to the mediums)
