    Knockhill, Scotland.

    Only because it's, like, a 2.5 hour drive away.

    Oh wait: no fans :(

    Looks like Perez is out for the both Silverstone rounds after a positive COVID test.

    Yup, rumors are going around that Hulkenberg will fill in, what are the odds of it happening and him finally getting that podium? :D

    From BBC: "Temperatures were extremely high at Silverstone on Friday, hitting 35C during the course of the afternoon."

    Now I do wish I was there, but I suspect that would have been a nightmare in the tent that evening...

    F1 should just go the WEC route, go multi-class, make Mercedes ‘F0’ ,run separate championships and call it a day :lol:

    Great finish to a boring race haha.
    Next week will be interesting as the whole field will be driving on softer tires, two stop strategy maybe?

    Remember there were two long safety cars today. This should have been a two stop already.

    If Nico gets a podium tomorrow it'll be a better sports fairytale than Brawn or Leicester.

    Very strange race today, but very exciting!

    Shame about Hulk.

    Had to leave after the first twenty minutes only to get a text from my dad later on that Max suddenly won :lol: that's how it goes haha.
    Sad to see Hulk didn't get a podium though, but I'm sure he'll still be getting some calls for a potential spot next year (my money is on Grosjean's seat)

    F-Zero already exists as a Super Nintendo game, and the Zero stands for zero gravity.

    Thank god for the F1TV, not paying what cable costs in the us to watch it on espn.

    Yea I know haha, almost makes it more fitting though seeing what Mercedes is capable of :lol: Then they just need a driver dressed as Captain Falcon doing some demo runs at promo events and it's a done deal.

    Today will most likely be a snooze fest, not looking forward to it too much but hey anything can happen I guess.

    I really really really can’t wait till we get to the new tracks, with some luck they’ll bring some exciting situations.

    I thought today was a pretty decent race, at least interesting. And you know, Ferrari drama!

    In other news does anyone else think that Daniel Ricciardo looks like young Petrucci?
