It was brutal to watch.

i agree, had i seen it live i would have worried i saw a fatality, the halo saved a life

 

he was also very lucky that it was the first lap and the medical car was on the scene in seconds

Mclaren have unveiled their new car, looks very similar to last years for me but i have zero observation skills

This site has a good side by side comparison. It's hard to tell in the launch photos because they only give away the stuff they can't change (the front wing will be completely different by Round 1).

From what I can see they've gone to the Mercedes style nose and the floor is a little different near the rear wheels. Otherwise it does looks pretty much the same.

i only just found out that bathurst is starting the season

Yep, I'm not sure if they are going to make Gold Coast a night event but that is the last round this season. It was planned to be a supernight event along with Perth and Eastern Creek last season.

i think that was by choice, they do have mazepin driving for them so i assume they expect to be facing the wrong way around most of the time :P

It's sketchy as hell after the WADA decision. They banned all Russian athletes from competing under the Russian flag, banned them from using things like the two headed eagle symbol they regularly use and banned them from displaying the word "Russia" unless the phrase "neutral athlete" is equally or more prominently displayed. Since F1 is a signatory to WADA they have incorporated the ban into their rules for the next two seasons.

Now we have a car that is basically the Russian flag, sponsored by a Russian company whose colours are normally green and red, and this is all apparently fine. I've also read a few things online from American fans who only follow Haas because they're the American team. The launch happened to suit Russian time so it was 3am in the US and the ones who stayed up got to watch their "American" team launch a car with a Russian flag on it. They're starting to wonder why they bother.

Any minute now, the team will be called either Team Mazepin or Team Haaschinikov

Yeah just heard. Sad news although 97 is a good run. I’d forget how old that really is until he told anecdotes about pre-war drivers or how his favourite driver was Fangio.
