It's for losses like this that I'd love if F1 was more relaxed on the rules and more open about doing parades, memorials and such. Imagine something like this in Formula 1:
They'll need more than a few. A new working group is probably the minimum.
I was thinking about how they should do something like that this weekend. Like they could do the first lap without racing to honor his memory (as a gentlemen's agreement between all drivers and teams).
I don't think taking the fun out of the first lap would be very beneficial. They should do something before the race.
Not quite. There's a video by Scarbs mentioning that the tip of the end plate was slightly pointed inwards to generate a vortex to accelerate the flow of air outwards. And Merc pretty much confirmed the first week testing package is a representation of where the car was around Autumn last year...
Well yeah, but it would be like a rolling start after the safety car. I don't think it would rob the viewers of drama if they did it instead of a normal standing start.
Oh wow... wtf... arson?Slight off-topic, but the all-electric motorbike racing series that was supposed to start this May, MotoE, is now in jeopardy as a major fire at the Jerez testing destroyed the entire paddock with all the bikes.
I see, I'll root for him, too! Lewis Hamilton looks like a great guy but he's won too much! Gotta give love to some underdogs too.
Yeah so many things to look forward too. Danny at Renault and their progress as a team. Leclerc at Ferrari and their supposed advantage over Merc. RedBull Honda partnership. Will McLaren start getting their shit together? What about Lando Norris. Also Alfa Romeo progress. . So excited we are finally getting there.

Not goodChannel 4 last year had 65.7% of the total audience watching F1 in the UK, according to the sport's official figures. It says its average audience for live race coverage - lights to flag - was 2.9m. For the entire live race programme, the average was 2.5m.
It is aiming to keep its programming as recognisable and distinctive as possible, despite the loss of live race coverage.
The on-air line-up remains pretty much the same. The most high-profile figures - presenter Steve Jones, analysts David Coulthard and Mark Webber, and commentator Ben Edwards - are still on board.
Also highlights programs can not start until a minimum of 3 hours after the race has finishedSky has imposed a series of restrictions on C4 in the contract for the highlights races, which will affect both the race coverage itself, and what happens around it.
For example, only 50% of the total running time of C4's programme can now be taken up by the on-track coverage - down from between 60-70% last year. They are not allowed to do interviews in what is known as the 'pen' - where all the drivers are taken to do a round-robin of broadcasters after qualifying and race - or in the pit lane. Any 'pen' interviews they use will have to come from Sky. The amount of interviews C4 can do in the paddock is restricted. And they have been forbidden from doing a 'grid walk'
Naa As much as I'd love it to still be on the BBC, they don't have the money for the rights. Its not like Wombledon who don't even want to put it on anywhere else.
