One of the best motorsport weekends on the calendar arrives this Memorial Day Weekend, with the Indy 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix. The Spanish Gran Prix wrapped up with Mercedes-AMG looking like they figured something out; the tire performance the Silver Arrows have afforded this season has been pretty rough, giving Ferrari the edge to date. However, some smart pit strategy has helped give Merc the edge despite being down on pace. Spain was different in that Merc was pretty untouchable most of the weekend. There was a thinner walled Pirelli making its debut and I think this definitely was part of the full picture, but the general track temps and weather were in flux all weekend. Red Bull had a great showing here, making up for the double DNF weekend with great points including one podium by young Max Verstappen. Vettel attempted a virtual safety car pit jump of Merc mid-race but it didn't turn out the way Ferrari hoped due to the amount of traffic that came along with that pit stop, nullifying its advantage. Another race full of carnage and DNF's, with six cars failing to see the checkered flag. This group includes the ever unlucky Raikkonen (mechanical failure), Vandoorne and a trio of cars caught up in Grosjean's 180* burnout, after losing the car behind his teammate on Lap 1, Magnussen (who finished 6th). Gasly and Hulk were both claimed. Both Spaniards finished the race and lapped with flags in hand, much to the enjoyment of the home crowd, post race. Hams has taken a stronger lead in the Drivers''s Championship, of 17 points, but with Monaco around the corner it'll all come down to qualifying as track position is king. Hsmilton will be looking to rectify the pit stop strategy snafu that resulted in Merc giving the GP to Vettel and Ferrari last year. The current Driver's standings are as follows: Hamilton, Vettel (-17), Bottas (-37), Raikkonen (-47), Ricciardo (-48) and Verstappen (-62).

Enjoy your motorsport holiday weekends.

Another great weekend of racing ahead and ESPN coverage tries to make up for last weekend by providing coverage of all Free Practices on ESPNU (aka The OCHO) and ESPN2. There's supposedly an F1 streaming service debuting this weekend, in related news, but it's not free. In the meantime we get back to action in Baku, AJ -- nothing short of the craziest race of 2018. Last year had Vettel ramming into Hams after thinking he was break checked during a safety car lap. This year we had two Red Bulls take each other out, Hamilton fell into a victory due to some pretty shabby debris clearing by the track workers during multiple safety car laps; Bottas clipped a large piece of metal in the closing laps forcing him to retire after rear tire puncture. Grosjean crashes out while trying to keep his tires up to temp during a safety car lap. Did I mention there were a ton of safety car laps!? Ferrari was fast again, but was out strategized by Merc late, Bottas driving the perfect race. Raikkonen fell short in qualy by made the podium ahead of his teammate. Sergio Perez made the absolute most of what was given to him, taking 3rd place. Seven drivers didn't reach the end of the race, which shook up the points scoring landscape tremendously. McLaren scored with both cars. Sauber finished in 6th...enough said. With the checkered flag dropped the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Vettel (-4), Raikkonen (-22), Bottas (-30), Ricciardo (-33), Alonso (-42). Spain is where everyone tests in the off season, where most teams and drivers have the most laps. This should be another good weekend to see who gets the edge between the three top teams. 
Enjoy your race weekends.

The past few races have been pretty crazy. China once again shows strategy is enough to bridge the gap between the top three teams. Don't have enough power on the straights? Overtake via pitstop, ideally as soon as a safety car shows up and get on the best tires for the remainder of the race. China was an unbelievable victory for Red Bull and Daniel Ricciardo, great race for Bottas and solid grid spot penalty salvage for Hamilton. Kimi is still just off the tip of the Ferrari spear, still getting out qualy'd, by hundredths, by Vettel. Vettel still seems to be a magnet for agressive driver moves, but he still did his best to finish an avoid giving up major points to Hams in the Driver's championship. Verstappen, despite his incident with Vettel and 10 second penalty, drove his ass off and helped Red Bull take home great team points. And in case you didn't noticed, Massa's replacement isn't doing so well; Williams has regressed.

Just when I was warming up to Sky Sports shared coverage of F1 on ESPN, they don't include a live airing of qualifying in Azerbaijan this weekend (or so I can tell right now) -- what a !@#$*(# joke. This weekend should still be an interesting race as we wait to see if Red Bull can build on this success, if Petronas Mercedes can come up with a tweak to help them get on the front row, if Ferrari is still the team to beat this year (despite not leading the Manufacturers Championship) and if Alonso can continue knocking on the door of the top 7 teams.

Enjoy your weekends.

No detailed recap this weekend as I'm still behind; I did watch the Aussie GP though; Vettel via Ferrari takes advantage of a virtual safety car to out strategize Lewis' Mercedes with the expanded 'effective' pit lane delta and never gave the lead up, Lewis took another pole position but finished second in the GP. The new cars look weird with halos, ESPN coverage is not very good thus far, HAAS has some bad luck, McLaren looks competitive and Alonso finishes sixth.

Enjoy your weekends.
