    Australia apart all the other races so far this season have been very entertaining.

    Hope it continues.

    Messing around trying to get the tyres up to temp to such a miniscual tolerence just aint racing, its akin to pouring water on certain parts of the circuit or throwing ice onto a corner or putting ballast into the best driverscars to make it interesting. I agree tyres have a part to play but should not govern to such a large extent

    Oh the irony of it.

    F1 could be racing round the streets of Miami next season.

    That'll be the Miami that is slowly but surely succumbing to the effects of man made global warming as the sea rises and starts to erode the very land the city is built on.

    Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

    I thought in F1 they prefer to drive over your foot?

    The irony was in 2014 Miami held a round of Formula e where local environmentalists held demos over the authorities shutting roads to create the circuit

    Only in America.

    Weirdly, it shows how much yhe science of climate change has developed in such a short period of time.

    I was out at a Formula - E event last year and it seemed like most of the crowd had turned up in their Tesla, smugly thinking they were no longer part of the problem.

    It was still gridlock all around.

    So this weekend F1 returns to France for the first time since 2008, and the first time to the Paul Ricard circuit since 1990.

    Apparently the traffic getting to and from the circuit is an absolute nightmare.

    The circuit itself looks fucking horrible. With acres and acres of tarmac run-off - a bad thing that has been proliferating at more and more modern circuits - but here painted garish blue and red stripes.

    And the drivers think the layout is wrong.

    Paul Richard is a great circuit though.

    It’s been mostly used for testing (we’ve tested some stuff there even!) and domestic French races.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Nice lap by Leclerc! Seems like the new Jules Bianchi in some ways - nice guy, with a lot of talent, at a smaller team and with respect to his team-mate maybe we can't tell just yet how quick/good he can be, but pretty good for sure.

    On that same sort of note, it'll be interesting to see how Vandoorne does once he has not only a more competitive car, but also a different team-mate to Alonso. Alonso just called him the most talented young driver of the recent years. But although he's often not far behind, he never seems to be ahead of Alonso in qualifying, whereas obviously Hamilton did it fairly often but also sometimes Jarno Trulli (a qualifying specialist to be fair though) for example so either Alonso found some kind of unbelievable consistency or Vandoorne doesn't quite excel speed wise to any kind of super level, even intermitently, but I guess anyway he'd still do well in a top car and even be able to challenge for an F1 Championship to add to his GP2 one, depending on luck and who his competitors (especially team-mate) were. If McLaren don't manage to really make a step forwards maybe he won't be getting that sort of chance anytime soon though, and maybe Alonso (apart from that comment) isn't doing him many favours.

    The thing is with F1 we can't really have an idea of who is better out of those two I think - Leclerc and Vandoorne. Experts, engineers etc might feel they can form an idea about it though I guess.

    Proof if ever it was needed that cars don't give you the freedom that the manufacturers claim.

    It would have been far quicker if everyone had cycled, but no, far better to keep on belching out all those fumes while they use their air conditioning and listen to shit music in their little metal boxes.

    Silly *****.

    You wouldn't get a sweat on riding at 10kmh, christ I can nearly walk that fast.

    But hey, I forgot that driving your Ford Mondeo made you cool.

    Luckily the girls love virile cyclists, bags of stamina, you see, rather than the boys who've let themselves go to waste in their 'cool' cars

    And of course, the more you cycle, the fitter you get, and thus the less sweaty.

    Are you the same Keith who updates us every couple of months with your latest car purchase?

    The bloke whose twitter I feed I linked was travelling 45km each way to the circuit. He's a punter going to a sporting event with his missus not Chris fucking Froome!

    Hmm, he was travelling at less than 10km/h, that's about 6mp/h.

    I think its a perfectly valid comment considering transport is responsible for half the man made carbon released into the atmosphere.

    While it was a tongue in cheek, throw away comment it highlights as a human race how stupid we are and how narrow minded we are to other options if/where they exist.

    You certainly wouldn't need to be Chris Froome to do it, although I'm sure he'd do the return journey in a couple of hours.

    Sure I've jumped onto the EV carousel. I'd far rather not own a car, two wheels rule, but only use a car where absolutely necessary and that definitely isn't to sit in traffic jams going to sporting/leisure events, that's utter madness.
