I'm not sure how that race was dull - I don't get why people say it was.
Monaco is normally dull but at least had the excitement of tyres being destroyed.
Some races are processions with not enough overtaking but generally there's enough in the midfield to be excited about as well as up front.

I flippin' love it still.

I think I agree with all of that other than ths stewards thinking twice as I tend to feel their ruling was in line with precedents

The penalty is only required because the aerodynamic regulations make overtaking near impossible for similar cars.

Formula E is attracting more car manufacturers at the moment, they can run a works team at reasonable cost and the racing is close.

Yes, agree wholeheartedly, best race this season imo.

I didn't see anything wrong in Verstappen's passing of Leclerc, quite surprised that Ferrari called it, if anything the touch was down to Leclerc...

Bravo Max

Over two hours later and still no decision.
I assume some stewards want to take the victory away but others worry about how it makes F1 look with such a late contentious decision to take away a win after the champagne.

I think it was the right decision.

Both were just about on the grubbier side of the grey area that encompasses 'racing incidents'.

Only the petulant child in me would have been happy to see Verstappen get a penalty because he's such a massive wanker.....but the right call was made so fair play.

Rich Energy announced that they are pulling out of the deal with HAAS, blamimg poor performance by the team at the A1. I assume that means HAAS is tired of not getting payment and they were about to announce the court ordered removal of the Rich logo, was not going to be replaced. Let's hope no major affect on HAAS.

Edit: seems business as usual, the tweet was more bizarness from william storey ( the bearded Rich guy)

Anyone been to Indycar?
There isn't much quality Motorsport in WA, so I am going down the road to Portland at the end of September for the Portland GP. I dont follow Indycar closely, but I get the impression it has taken quite a hit over the years, and it isnt quite the quality it was a decade or two ago. Anyone here been to Indycar? How was it?
