Russia was another interesting race with some unexpected results for unexpected reasons. Hamilton took pole again and was poised to taking his 91st GP win, starting from the front and getting clear of Bottas who qualified third behind a very quick Verstappen. However, things didn't quite shake out that way once FIA handed him not one but two 5sec penalties (and two points on his super license which were later withdrawn) were applied to Hams after he did some practice starts too far out of the pitlane after his pit told him he was good to do so. This effectively put him in mid-field after the penalty was served, which was even rougher since he had to qualify on softs in Q2 after losing his lap time on his first run for going beyond the line on the final corner then Seb putting his car into a wall bringing a red flag with two minutes to go and Hamilton on a flyer. He barely made the cutoff to start a qualy lap and already had too much distance on his mediums since they would be race tires. In other Merc news, Bottas was an opportunist and used this chance to get as many points as he could over Lewis, which ended up being a delta of 11 points; he managed fastest lap and Hams finished 3rd behind Verstappen. Outside of this top three there were some important result and critical news. Renault looked extremely strong, with Ricciardo taking 5th after getting a 5sec penalty himself and Ocon taking 7th. Sergio took 4th in this installment of the 'give me a seat for 2021' tour. Leclerc took 6th, performing much better than anyone from Maranello expected, but notably, positions 8 through 10 were two AlfaTauri's and Albon brining up the rear, in tenth. The reason this is important is because these three cars, along with P2 Verstappen, are all Honda powered -- Honda just announced they were pulling out of F1 after the 2021 season. This is going to have big implications as Red Bull and Alfa Tauri will need to either get Renault power-plants again or go Ferrari on either one or both teams. Red Bull and Renault are like Alonso and McLaren in some ways. With the smoke cleared, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-44), Verstappen (-77), Norris (-140), Albon (-141), Ricciardo (-142). Bottas' and Verstappen's point delta to the driver they're behind is quite the coincidence and there's a virtual free for all from 4th back.

This weekend we're heading back to the Nurburgring for the first time since the early 2010's and you know Merc is looking to show out at home. Bottas is feeling good about himself and Hamilton is trying to correct the blemish that was Sochi, so I'm sure he'll be on it to finally match Schumi and get this milestone behind him. Ricciardo is still trying to get a tattoo on Cyril and McLaren is looking to bounce back after an awful weekend in Sochi.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

Coming off another exciting 24hrs of Le Mans, the F1 circus arrives in Sochi, Russia. The last race, the 1000th Ferrari (Tuscan) GP at Mugello, was one of the wildest in some time. The retirements and red flags were high, accidents on top of accidents and after the smoke cleared Hamilton took both pole and the race win. Gasly (lap 1 accident) and Stroll (rear puncture accident on lap 43) were no where to be found at the checkered flag, unlike the prior weekend in Monza, and more senior driver's made some great showings, including Kimi taking 9th in a relatively weak Alfa Romeo. Sainz had some bad luck, DNF'd as well, Ricciardo got close but not close enough to put a tattoo on Cyril in Italy, taking 4th. Bottas had a better race weekend, but still wasn't able to reel Hams in; had some bad luck with trying an alternate tire strategy, but pitting before Lewis. Mugello isn't really a passing circuit and with all of the fast corners disrupted aero will ruins tires and slows lap times. Albon came through for Red Bull to take the final podium spot, in the wake of Verstappen getting hit and beached in the gravel on lap one, after having another challenging Saturday. Very quietly, Verstappen has DNF'd himself out of the Driver's Championship in a short period of time. Lastly, Vettel was able to get the last championship point, taking 10th, Leclerc in 8th. Further recaps below in the vids. With the smoke cleared the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-55), Verstappen (-80), Norris (-125), Albon (-127), Stroll (-133). Sochi should be another exciting chance to see who in the mid-field can stand out while Hamilton tries to equal Schumi in race wins.

Italy is the backdrop once again this weekend much like the back to back races in the UK. This time around, however, we're at a different track -- Mugello. First off, a late farewell to the Williams family at the helm of the Williams F1 Team, including Claire Williams as Team Principal and Sir Frank Williams as founder and proprietor. This historic era came to an end at Monza last week and the paddock has tipped their collective cap to the last privateer outfit in F1. The silver lining is that Williams F1 have new backing and will be in F1 for years to come. Secondly, congrats to Pierre Gasly after taking his maiden grand prix victory due an extraordinary sequence of events, some impeccable timing and a strong drive to hold of the advances of Carlos Sainz who wanted to make his own incredible storyline come true before coming to Maranello. All said, there was a refreshing podium last weekend, with Gasly, Sainz and Stroll spraying champagne and we had an Italian anthem being played for a team without a red paint scheme, that of Scuderia Alfa Tauri. Speaking of teams with a red paint scheme, Ferrari had as bad a weekend as you could've imagined. They were slow and didn't make it out of Q2 and when the race came they had a double DNF highlighted by a rear brake failure(fire) for Seb and Charles' misfortune of losing the rear end on the way out of parabolica, with a snap/catch and very rapid impact into the tire barriers. This latter incident brought about a red flag that ended up giving Stroll a free pitstop while in second behind Hams, at the time, with his original tires as Racing Point bet on track position rather than fitting new tires during a prior yellow flag (after a mechanical failure for Magnussen's Haas, right before the pit entrance). Magnussen's retirement was key in this race, because when his car broke and the track marshals decided to push his car towards the nearby pit entrance rather than getting a crane and flatbed, the stewards closed the pit. Seconds later, the collective Mercedes team (including Lewis behind the wheel who was apparently making settings changes on his steering wheel) didn't notice the two boards showing 'X' and had Lewis box to take advantage of a quick pitstop. Antonio Giovinazzi and Alfa Romeo made the same mistake shortly afterwards and both drivers got 10second stop and go penalties costing them both about 30 seconds, effectively. But before the pit closed and after the yellow flag came out, Pierre Gasly stopped for a tire change and this very opportunity helped him compete for the win after the red flag grid restart. After serving his penalty, Hams came back onto the track in last place (~17th) with about half the race left, and grinded his way back to 7th on a weekend where Bottas was trying to make up Driver's Championship ground with Verstappen retired for mechanical issues and Hams  just about dead to rights. Whatever happened to Bottas' car during his terrible race start and scrap with other front runners seemed to have limited him from showing his pace from Saturday; the same pace that Lewis showed on his comeback drive. But more importantly plenty of teams took advantage of the chaos, the grid restart after the red flag Leclerc brought on (he walked away from the accident, btw) including Renault and McLaren. This is important for that third manufacturers spot for this season. With the checkered flag dropped, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-47), Verstappen (-54), Stroll (-107), Norris (-107), Albon (-116). As you can see, Stroll and Norris are here to play and just out of view are Sainz and Gasly. Mugello should be another interesting challenge for everyone, but what most will be looking to see is if Ferrari can genuinely compete in their thousandth grand prix as a constructor.

Spa was quite the race, but don't blink yet there are two more back to back races as the F1 season aims for 17 total races this year, using some old and brand new race tracks. Italian Grand Prix followed by the Tuscan Grand Prix, both at the legendary Monza circuit. This was a great weekend, but it's been a short week so I'll really stick to replay help this time ha. I feel bad for Carlos with a second Spa DNF in a row through no fault of his own, Hams is unflappable, Bottas is good, but is missing something, Verstappen is doing what his car is capable of, Ricciardo has been on form and Renault is looking fast, Ocon with a great showing. Gasly is still showing great skill and Ferrari are bringing up the rear of the mid-pack, again. Monza has always exposed those with a lack of power so it's going to be a long two weeks. Hams is still on top of the pile, with Verstappen holding onto a 3pt lead over Bottas in the Driver's Championship standings for the time being.

Enjoy your motorsport Labor Day weekends.

We're heading to Spa for another F1 weekend with the new technical directive of removing high-power 'party modes' from the entire paddock, come the Italian GP. The race in Spain was as hot as ever, but Merc's changes post-70th Anniversary GP seem to have worked. Their tire management was solid and race pace was typical top shelf quality. Hamilton broke more records this weekend with his 156th podium while taking his 88th race win, spoiler alert, but what was more intriguing was what happened elsewhere in the field. Bottas had a bad start which has lead to him spending the race trying to get back into his starting position, without success -- he tried to salvage it a bit by taking the fastest lap point on a new set of tires, late. Verstappen split the two Mercs, taking 2nd, showing really good race pace and tire management although Albon got caught up in mid-pack fighting and took 8th as result; his performances on Saturday are what he's trying to get a better handle on. Leclerc had some really bad luck, with his engine cutting off late in the race, requiring a restart, a long pit-stop and some seatbelt re-fastening, which lead to a retirement decision. Seb's strategy from Ferrari was a bit flakey, but he ended up one stopping after no safety cars showed up and his tire management looked ok and was able to hold onto 7th for his first points in some time. Perez came back from quarantine and picked up right where he left off, looking strong in the race and finished 4th before a pretty odd blue flag penalty (based on the replays I saw) and it's associated 5-second penalty was applied, leading to him swapping spots with Stroll who was 2.3 seconds back at the checkered flag. Stroll had a great race and between his strong outings and Perez looking consistently sharp, the decision for the Racing Point 2021 driver line up will be difficult to say the least. Mclaren got points from both cars despite this not being a strong track for them and Gasley finished in the points once again, just behind Albon, who replaced him on the top Red Bull team. With the checkered flag dropped, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Vertstappen (-37), Bottas (-43), Leclerc (-87), Stroll (-92), Albon (-92), Norris (-93). As you can see, there has been some shuffling at the top, but this season is far from over. Spa rewards top end power so this should be another Merc powerplant favorable circuit. We'll see how the new regulations, tire selection and temperatures all factor into the race finish.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

Short week so I'll keep it brief. The biggest takeaways from the second race at Silverstone was Max Verstappen was right, the Merc doesn't like high temps and rear tires with the upped pressures enforced by FIA to avoid tire blow outs, and fortune favors the bold. Some nice one stoppers out there for points, Hulk's Racing Point fires up on race day and he scores points in 7th, while Perez recovers from covid. The strategy didn't pay off for Bottas, but it seemed more like trying to mix things up turned out to work better for Hams after thinking Bottas covered off Max; the Red Bull's pace was just too strong in the heat for the Merc. Max earned that win, Hamilton did well to take second with fresh tires late, but took a little to long to pass Leclerc during his second stint. Bottas, dropped two spots from pole and will have a bad taste in his mouth heading to Spain. Merc is going to have to figure out why they can't handle the heat; it could be too much downforce based on discussions from post-race, but we'll see how the long run tire performance looks for the teams comes FP2. Everyone is heading to Spain in August so it should be another hot one. With the checkered flag dropped, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Verstappen (-30), Bottas (-34), Leclerc (-62), Norris (-69), Albon (-71). As you can see, Bottas' 11th place finish in the BGP has cost him quite a bit and he has good reason to be peeved, but there's a lot of bad luck in play which he can hopefully shake going forward.

Some would say it's better to be lucky than good, but when you're good and have luck on your side, you're unstoppable. One of the most incredible finishes in recent memory, chaos across the board late in the race in the form of hard tires unraveling across the field and causing some serious mayhem. It appeared to happen with Kvyat, it happened to Sainz; it happened to Hams on his last lap and most importantly it happened to Bottas with a few laps left, taking him from hunting Hams down late to getting held off from the final championship point by a recently struggling 4-time world champion in a red car. With Hamilton making it across the finish line, with sparks flying and his LF tire carcass almost completely separated, Hamilton's record collection was pushed even further along, but his point total was also increased by a margin of 25 over Bottas'. Valteri got a pretty bad draw and in reaction to all of the tire destruction and plans of going with even softer compounds for this weekends 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, at the very same tire abusing track, Pirelli looked into this matter quite seriously. I'll leave the other race highlights to today's video, but strong performances by many drivers in the top ten, including Ricciardo, Lando and Charles. With the checkered flag dropped, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-30), Verstappen (-36), Norris (-52), Leclerc (-55), Albon (-62).
Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

The Hungarian Grand Prix was a relatively uneventful race at the top, with Lewis taking another pole and his 8th win in Hungary, his 86th overall GP victory, but with plenty of interesting details elsewhere. Bottas had a close call with a false start that didn't count against him due to his movement falling within the error threshold and the constraints of his grid box -- lights on his steering wheel almost goaded him into a major error. The weather was mixed through out the weekend and while it didn't create the drama of the previous week's Q3, it did lead to Verstappen breaking a tie rod about 25mins before race start; his mechanics did a hell of job replacing everything with about 20 seconds to spare before they would've taken a grid penalty. Ferrari looked a little bit better out there, both cars finishing the race, but Racing Point showed speed once again producing one of the most notable events of the weekend, which was Lance Stroll taking 3rd in qualy and 4th in the actual race. The legend of the 'pink Mercedes' is growing so plenty in the paddock will be interested in what comes of Renault's protest of Racing Point's brake ducts and their legality. Vettel had a pretty good run in the race, making up some spots after the chaos of the first lap, taking some good points for Ferrari. He even out qualified Leclerc, taking 5th to lead the all-Ferrari third row. Leclerc had challenges with the car and tires throughout the race and was beat out late for the last points paying spot, by his future teammate, Sainz and Haas' Magnussen, respectively. The order was pretty jumbled up as the race began with rain and everyone starting on inters, then the gambling began with folks jumping on to slicks and for a while there the two HAAS cars were in the top five. Both HAAS F1 drivers were unfortunately penalized for their gamble as it took place during the formation lap as result of communications with the pit wall, but Magnussen was still able to snag one point taking tenth after his 10 second penalty was imposed. As pit stops rattled in as teams were waiting for rainfall that never materialized, the strategy evolved from there. Hamilton was the fastest by far and Bottas' clunky start put him on the back foot early, recovering to nearly chase down Verstappen late in the race. Albon had another strong showing, despite some controversy with the stewards over RBR members drying his grid box before the race, and finished three spots behind Vertstappen in fifth. With the checkered flag dropped, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Hamilton, Bottas (-5), Verstappen (-30), Norris (-37),  Albon (-41), Perez (-41). Merc also has a 66 point lead in the Constructor's over Red Bull, with McLaren and Racing Point following, ahead of Ferrari in fifth. We're headed to Silverstone for another back to back, a la Red Bull Ring Rounds 1 & 2, so we'll see if McLaren and Renault can fight their way back up to the mid-field lead after a tough race in Hungary for both teams.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

Another solid race weekend with another coming next week from Hungary. Lando Norris, what can you say; he's coming on form and has delivered yet again. While Renault is protesting the Racing Point Mercedes cars for being 2019 Silver Arrows, the real problem is that they're breaking down and McLaren is giving it to them with the same Renault power unit that they're running. While qualifying was exciting, I didn't get to see it in real time due to the rain delay on Saturday so I caught up on what happened during the SkySportsF1 pre-race on Sunday. Lewis has always been strong in the wet and on this occasion out dueled Max in a fantastic back and forth for purple laps until Lewis put the hammer down the hardest in Q3 to take pole. Williams' Russell got his car into 11th with a little bit of penalty help, but got his car within a tenth of Q3 which is something George can hang his hat on despite being in a back field trailing package. Bottas didn't qualify as well as he wanted, but made up for it in the race in dry conditions and Sainz drove his ass off in the wet to take P3. The race was relatively predictable Merc dominance, but there were a couple of important things that took place which can't go without mention; Leclerc's enthusiasm lead to a Ferrari double DNF when they needed to get data on to try getting ahead of their correlation problems given the lack of running on Saturday, which was a major setback. The mid-field battle raging right now is very important as Racing Point, McLaren, Renault and AlphaTauri are all mixing it up. Ferrari powered cars are struggling and many things need to be sorted out before the balance of pace changed from where it is now. The mass attrition from last weekend didn't repeat itself and only 3 cars DNF'd, the red cars along with Esteban Ocon who had to retire with a mechanical problem. Perez, despite Norris' strong outing got my vote for driver of the day. He went from 17th to 6th with a tremendous drive and this is likely why Renault is protesting their car, because Lance was right behind him, finishing 7th. The Red Bull boys took 3rd and 4th to try making up for last weeks Albon DNF; Albon had another close call in this race which could've ruined his race, but fortunately it played out much differently; he raced strong and held off Perez who looked to have the faster car. Max did as best as as he could've with his car; the tire strategy fell away from him early after Bottas stayed out for another ten laps when he pitted. Ricciardo raced well too, but his car was only so good. With the checkered flag waved, the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Bottas, Hamilton (-6), Norris (-17), Leclerc (-25), Perez (-27), Verstappen (-28). No one tested positive for another week, so cross your fingers, we're on to the Hungaroring.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

What a race weekend. From beginning to end it was full of unexpected surprises aside from Merc being the season front runner, again. From practice to the thrilling qualy (Bottas nipping Hams for pole by .0012 seconds before the 3-grid spot penalty on race day), to the solidarity between the drivers on race day for equality to the battle of attrition that was the race. DNF's all abound, from electric gremlins, to poorly attached wheels to gearbox issues to the curbs becoming a natural deterrent, to Albon's shattered dreams after tangling with Hams and Hams getting a time penalty again, to Vettel getting spun around, but fighting back to get points, to only 11 cars finishing the race. For Norris getting his first podium by taking fastest lap on the final lap and just making it inside Hamiltons time penalty window; for Leclerc making miracles happen despite Ferrari's lack of pace to Bottas starting off another season strong. I missed F1 and was happy it was back. We have a short week and the gang will be back in Austria for the next race. With the penalties assessed and checkered flag dropped the Driver's Championship standings are as follows: Bottas, Leclerc (-7), Norris (-9), Hamilton (-13), Sainz (-15) , Perez (-17). With all the covid testing performed last week everyone has stayed negative, so hopefully we'll have another clean, uninterrupted race weekend.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.

As you can see above, all the sweet sweet motorsports are back for this weekend (even NASCAR is headlining in Indy this weekend) amid all the worldwide pandemic fun you could ask for. There's worldwide social unrest too, which has been sparked largely by the #blacklivesmatter movement's resurgence and growth here in the US, beginning in late Spring with thousands of public protests across the country, in response to several brutally vivid killings of black people by non-minorities (both by public law enforcement and civilians) caught on video. These videos hit the internet and news outlets and were then consumed on the largest worldwide scale that I can remember in my 43 year old lifetime. Outrage, anger, sadness and sympathy spread to other minorities, but most notably these emotions spread to many more non-minorities than these events have historically, which has lead to some of the largest multi-cultural protest gatherings in history...all during a pandemic. Downstream of these civil rights protests many matters of day to day race relations and equality have come to the forefront, around the world, from many different minority groups in various walks of life. Lewis Hamilton is not only arguably the best driver in F1 (inarguably the most decorated active driver in F1), but is the only black driver in F1. Lewis took this opportunity to push F1 to look at what it can do to support the sport's diversity going forward. In support of this initiative, Mercedes AMG will be running Lewis and Valteri's cars' in a black livery this 2020 season to stand against discrimination and support diversity.

I stick to racing and car related content on this blog by design and will continue to do so. Cars, racing and driving (and barbecue for that matter) have always been a prized outlet for me that have been free from the often agenda driven media news cycles which have become inescapable as of late. Some of my best life-long friends came through mutual enjoyment of cars and modifying them, going to races and shows and sharing that automotive passion with one another. I'll leave it at this; living by the golden rule goes a long way. Considering and empathizing with what others go through and how another persons' life experience may be very different from yours, goes a long way. Accepting and respecting one another's views, whether or not you like or agree with what you hear from the other side, goes a long way. Every last person on the planet is looking to improve quality of life for themselves and their loved ones, where ever possible and as human beings every last person has the right to do so. And I know, this is all 'no shit' information for most of us, but still worth stating. While it takes a proverbial village to make macro-level differences in this world of ours, at a micro-level every one of us that make up this village have some amount of power to push and pull those around us in whatever direction we choose. The internet and smart phones have shrunk the globe and you can influence someone in another country, someone down the street or in another state, in just a few seconds, all without much thought. With this in mind, try to avoid being socially divisive when sharing your thoughts, ideas and actions with and upon others.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming -- the 2020 F1 season is looking to start over after the debacle that was the Australian Grand Prix. Thought out COVID-19 precautions are in place and there will be two races in Austria, back to back, to kick things off. Lewis is trying to match Shumi and has chosen not to move to  another team next year. Will Toto leave Merc? Driver moves a plenty for 2021. Vettel is leaving Ferrari after this season and Sainz will join Leclerc. Ricciardo is leaving Renault for McLaren and Valteri is looking for an opportunity to seize not only a chip this year, but a driver's seat for 2021. The 2021 regulations have been pushed to 2022 so Merc should have the edge for this and next season; I mean, they have a dynamic toe-adjusting steering column. On the other end of the paddock, famed Williams is looking for future dollars to keep the team around while getting off the last spot of the grid. Plus many other story lines I didn't get to, but yea, excited to see FP1 tomorrow. Here's hoping everyone has race weekends without covid incidents so we can continue to follow our favorite international motorsport events on tv and internet, once again. 

Enjoy your Independence Day Weekends and stay safe out there.
