Azerbaijan was quite eventful besides the same general outcome as previous races. The circuit at Baku, with its trademark ultra long straight, lends itself to teammate slipstreaming and low downforce, but not everyone was able to take advantage. Gasley, arguably the biggest loser of the weekend (Russell's loss of a floor to a loose manhole cover in FP1 aside) had unfortunate circumstances take him from the top of Q1 to starting from the pitlane for a previous infraction during FP2, only to not even finish the race. Meanwhile, Bottas, fresh off a bad start after taking pole in China which lead to his 2nd place finish, got the job done in his start and took that lead to the checkered flag after Ferrari didn't execute so well on strategy, losing their typically strong bet on a safety car. That brings us to the strategy conundrum for Leclerc (see video below), who crashed in Q2 and baked himself into starting 8th (and got fresh mediums due to those damaged during the crash), was that his long-run pace was much better on the mediums than the field on softs which led to him taking the overall race lead, but the window in which he could've competed for a podium position passed while Ferrari's strategists waited for solid gap or a safety car; the gap passed, the safety car never came and Leclerc ended up on an island in 5th, behind Verstappen and way ahead of Perez. The silver lining was that he snagged fastest lap points with a late pitstop onto the softs, keeping Bottas from taking it. This is important, because this shaved a point off of what Bottas would've had by the end of the race, one position ahead of Hamilton. The Racing point boys had a great race, Perez taking 6th in a very strong field. McLaren took 7th and 8th, Sainz getting the better of Norris on a great weekend for both drivers; looks like they're getting a bit more consistent in the mid-field. Kimi took the final point for Alfa Romeo in 10th. Haas bad luck continues with Grosjean DNF, Ricciardo too never saw the flag. Gasley and Kvyat round out the four cars that didn't make the end. Ferrari was fast, but not fast enough in race, so they'll be looking to rectify this issue once again in Spain. Merc has managed another 1-2 finish in a row and the manufacturers championship gap is growing at an incredible rate. Verstappen continues to play spoiler, he's only one point behind Vettel through race 4. The Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Bottas, Hamilton (-1), Vettel (-35), Vertsappen (-36), Leclerc (-40), Perez (-74). Spain should be another exiting race.

Enjoy your weekends.

Last we left off in China, the 1000th F1 race, Bottas took pole, Ferrari looked suspiciously slow and inept with strategy and Merc took another 1-2 in a row. Renault had another mechanical failure related DNF, Hulk the victim by himself this time around, and Ricciardo finally finished a race. Verstappen split the Ferraris again, which is putting Maranello in a bit of a pickle. If they can't keep up with Merc it leads to them shooting themselves in the foot by not covering off Verstappen with their strategy. Also, if Leclerc is as good as he appears to be and Ferrari seems to be favoring Vettel with the benefit of team strategies, this lack of letting their drivers race each other will likely decide this years Championship; probably in favor of the silver arrows if they continue to remain as reliable as they've been thus far. Albon crashed out in P3, which took him out of Qualy, but he made it up to his team by taking back one championship point from the starting at the back of the field during the race -- great drive to take 10th. Gasly finally performed up to expectations, finishing right behind Leclerc in 6th. He also wisely snagged the fastest lap since he had a big enough cushion to pit late for softs, keeping the front runners from holding onto it. Kimi took 9th, Perez too 8th and both Haas couldn't find any real pace and finished out of the points. Daniil regained his torpedo status with a 7-10 split of McLaren's on lap one, which he got penalized for, but it lead to both himself and Norris not finishing the race. Sainz finally finished a race, but it was only in 14th. Hamilton's start proved to be both decisive and the deciding in this grand prix; he never looked back and drove an excellent race. He now leads the championship.

With the checkered flag dropped the current Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-6), Verstappen (-29), Vettel (-31), Leclerc (-32), Gasly (-55). This weekend in Azerbaijan should be another entertaining race, we'll see if Ferrari can respond after a lackluster performance in China.
Enjoy your weekends.

What can you say about one of the most exciting and plot twisting races in quite a while, in the 2019 Bahrain GP? Poor Charles. He dominated all weekend, took pole position on Saturday, made a bad start Sunday, got back in the lead quickly, then he essentially experienced a dropped cylinder with about 15 laps left. This should've been his maiden grand prix victory, but it'll have to wait a bit longer. Hamilton, ever the opportunist, ran a strong race, was faster than his teammate, out dueled Vettel when team strategies lead to them going wheel to wheel, which put him behind Leclerc when his issue came up. The loss of that cylinder dropped his lap pace to over 3 seconds a lap under the field, which lead to him potentially finishing in 4th or 5th place -- but then the motorsport gods shined down upon him in the form of both Renaults breaking down with about 10 laps to go. It took so long to get Hulkenberg's car towed off the track, Ricciardo's remained through the checkered flag. Leclerc took 3rd under caution, which not only ensured his wounded car took third, but also ensured no one could break his fastest lap which came shortly before the engine problem. With these points he's leap frogged his teammate and put him fourth in the Driver's Championship. Vettel spun his car when Hams made the move to pass him (sound familiar?), but he salvaged the race by making his way back to fifth, behind Verstappen. I think what makes this season so great is that we have two young drivers on the top three teams which have the ability to compete for race wins and podiums; this is something we haven't had in a long time and it's mixing some things up. That said, things are looking up for Hamilton if he keeps turning out great results -- Vettel has a full on rival in his own team which will be limiting his ability to get max points everyweek. Bottas had a great first race, but didn't look as strong in Bahrain, so until we see more Hams should be the priority in silver. Verstappen will be a spoiler when the top two teams aren't strong enough which will further reduce the amount of points up for grabs. If Gasley could keep up with Max Red Bull would be an even bigger threat, but that isn't the case yet. Oh and Mclaren is still quick, with Norris taking 6th, but Sainz DNF'd again. This season is shaping up to be pretty interesting.

With the checkered flag dropped in Bahrain the current standings are as follows: Bottas, Hamilton (-1), Verstappen (-17), LeClerc (-18), Vettel (-22), Raikkonen (-34). This weekend's race in China is the 1000th F1 grand prix race, it's a track where power is rewarded with long straights and Merc will have their hands full once again trying to keep the red cars in check. If Leclerc takes the win in China will the team become his? We'll have to tune in to find out.

Enjoy your weekends.

Last time around in Australia...Merc showed themselves to be tops once again, Honda got on the podium for the first time in the hybrid turbo era, Grosjeans luck continued to go awry for another year via wheel related DNF, Ferrari looked slower than expected and Leclerc was seemingly told to back off once he reeled in Vettel due to some undisclosed (at the time) issue. Bottas lost out to Hamilton's qualifying mastery, by a tenth, but got what really mattered most to him, a (dominant) win and as icing on the cake, the single point for fastest lap (new rule in 2019). This brings him to 26pts after the first race. Hamilton didn't seem to be in too bad of spirits after wondering why he lacked pace during the race, as he explained he knows why the problem arose so theoretically it'll be resolved next time around in Bahrain (see vids below, re: floor damage). McLaren's Norris was able to make Q3 which was positive, but Sainz unfortunately channelled his inner Alonso and had a power-unit failure, smoke spewing out of the back of his car around mid-race. I just thought about how Alonso could've been suffering that failure if he was still on the team, but Norris did make it to the end of the race in his Renault powered McLaren. Ricciardo's home race was disappointing to say the least, starting off bad with his front wing getting ripped off on a bold starting move where the ground clearance was misjudged. The rest of the race deteriorated from here and pretty close to the end the team decided to pull him for some data on the screens that didn't bode well. With the checkered paddle dropped, the current race standings are as follows: Bottas, Hamilton (-8), Verstappen (-11), Vettel (-14), Leclerc (-16), Magnussen (-18).

Bahrain is a different style circuit to that of Melbourne, so it'll be interesting to see if Ferrari figures out what's going on, if Leclerc is allowed to flourish or just be the permanent #2. How will Hams fare against Bottas once his issue is resolved and how strong can Haas be when both cars can finish the race. Will McLaren be able to resolve the issue that lead to the failure and be able to have both cars finish? We'll have to tune in to find out.

We've been waiting for this weekend all off-season -- the start of the 2019 F1 season. F1 testing sessions up 'til now show Ferrari with the edge, Merc getting things together and Red Bull ironing out kinks with its packaging in order to maximize the new Honda power plant. Haas and Renault look to battle it out in the mid-field and McLaren has some pace which they hope to prove is real this weekend. Meanwhile, the IMSA 12hrs of Sebring is also taking place this weekend, as well as a World Endurance Championship race on the same circuit. This should be a great start to the full motorsport season.

On a sadder note, our thoughts go out to Charlie Whiting's friends and family, as he passed away this week. Charlie went from a Brabum engineer in his younger days to becoming the F1 Race Director, overseeing high level motorsport for decades. He not only watched over races, but worked with teams and drivers on regulation nuances, requirements, safety regulations as well as working with the circuits themselves to ensure they were as safe as possible for each event. He'll be missed, to all of us motorsport fans as well as everyone in the motorsport world that relied on his technical acumen and effectiveness in his multiple roles.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

Enthusiast Topic: BETTER THAN AN M3 - CRAZY 327i BMW E30! (MonkyLondon)

Monky London showcases Jack's five year long E30 build. 1992 318 shell, Alpina crank'd 2.7L M20 and standalone, built head, long tube headers, straight pipe exhaust, ITBs, lightened flywheel, 3.73S, MTech2 bodykit, Zender rear spoiler, DTM mirrors and BMW motorsport handles, MTech doorcards, E30M3 rear bench, wilwood 11" front brake upgrade, BBS, polybushings and coilovers, etc., etc. It's always nice to see an E30 project coming together, even if there's more on the to-do list. I can't say this is better than an E30M3, but it's arguably a better use of money at this point in E30M3 values.
