It seems to me Ferrari should have known that by giving Seb the slip stream at the start, it was very likely he would end up in front. Who knows what would have happened if he had checked up to stay behind Leclerc. The plan to fix that should have been to tell Leclerc to stay within a couple seconds (easier said than Read more

I don’t get it, either. Surely a grid penalty at the next GP is a risk worth taking to give Leclerc a chance to win today.  Obviously it was possible another safety car or virtual could have come out before Mercedes had to come in, which would have had the same effect.  But it seems odd to me that Ferrari would seal Read more

I agree when they made the call it wasn’t a guarantee Seb would end up ahead, but it was still the more likely outcome. As the leader I understand why Leclerc felt he should have had the option to be the first Ferrari in. Also, we can’t know for sure, but it sure felt like Seb was only faster at the end because he was Read more

At the pace they were being forced to run the first portion of the race, the undercut was always going to be a concern for Leclerc. I’m sure he didn’t expect it from his own team. I think Leclerc, as the race leader and faster Ferrari, is justified in being a bit miffed about that. He should have had the option of Read more

I understand in 2019 we don’t distinguish between ignorant racists and malicious racists, and I’m sure there are probably people who fly that flag who have no animosity toward anyone. But come on. This guy is proud to let the world know where he stands. That can only be interpreted as a huge middle finger to people of Read more

I’m not sure Seb could have done anything differently once he was in the grass. Maybe he could let up (and let Hamilton go by), maybe not. But he was in the grass because of his own mistake. Hamilton didn’t put him there. The result was a dangerous situation that forced Hamilton to check up and take evasive action.

I kinda agree. Even if he didn’t intentionally slam the window shut on Hamilton, it was Seb’s mistake going off and then flying back into the line, causing Hamilton to check up and evade. He could have slowed the car and gotten under control, but then Hamilton would have easily gone by. I’m no Mercedes fan, but I Read more

I’ve tried really hard to give F1 the benefit of the doubt this season. Most races have had at least something compelling to follow. But this one was brutal. Watching Ferrari shit down their leg isn’t interesting anymore. Credit to Mercedes, but they’re getting plenty of help from their would be challengers. Honestly Read more

I’m very biased as a much bigger fan of Indycar than F1, and I appreciate the two series for different aspects. But the on track racing is almost always better in Indycar. It’s not even close.

Is it really, though? Hard to follow on Sky’s coverage. I generally think they do a good job putting on the races, but they spend most of their time on Mercedes vs Ferrari. Rarely focused on the midfield action, unless someone makes a bold move or leaves the track. There’s certainly more competition between those Read more

I assume most don’t care who wins between Bottas and Hamilton, and suspect Lewis will pull it out anyway. It’s also hard to view two Mercedes drivers as a true competition in the team orders era. Who knows if they’ll let them fight it out? I sure hope so, because that’s the only thing F1 could hang their hat on this Read more

It’s true that excitement in F1 isn’t usually centered around passes for the lead, but this was a boring race by any standard. No competition at the front, very little racing further back, no competing tire or stop strategies, and no compelling storylines other than Ferrari getting their tactics wrong again (not that Read more

Boring. Should have read the recaps, watched the first lap, and deleted it off the DVR. I enjoyed Albon taking a point, and the Mercedes double stack was awesome. But Ferrari, for all their supposed straight line speed, were never going to threaten Merc at the top. Red Bull seem to be an even more distant third of the Read more

Coke really isn’t good for sex, at least in my experience. On top of the physical effects, I inevitably always got distracted by wanting to do more coke, which is pretty much all you care about.

Good race with an unsatisfying result. These days that’s a win for F1. Night races are fun to watch, and the DRS zones at Bahrain made for some good on-track action. Overall a fun race. Read more

The whole purpose of DRS wasn't necessarily to increase passing, but to neutralize the disadvantage of a trailing car passing through dirty air. So ideally two identical cars can go the same speed down a straight, regardless of which in front. It should allow for truly faster cars to overtake.

Mainly because Indycar is a spec series that restricts teams from making the kinds of aero changes that would make passing more difficult. F1 needs to decide what it wants to be. If it’s truly the top racing series in the world where innovation and speed rule the day, one drawback is that the racing won’t be that Read more

We all know there’s no defending Louis CK or Gervais here, but I’m having a hard time getting upset with Rock. If he’s comfortable with his friends talking like that, that’s his business. I’m not saying he can give them permission to say the n word. They still don’t get a pass. But his reaction belongs to him alone. Read more

I think Trump could deal with Don Jr, Eric or Jared going to prison. He’d probably throw them all under the bus to save his own ass. But Ivanka is different. She’s the one person I believe he actually loves (I’m aware his affection for her has been creepy and borderline criminal, but I think he just loves his daughter) Read more

How the hell did Seth Abramson not make this list? He’s the embodiment of resistance grifters, capitalizing off of people’s emotional desperation. He published a fucking book that was just a catalog of his stupid twitter threads. He was some low level civil defense attorney and English professor, and he talks like he Read more
