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.

It just felt like the F1 season ended not long ago and winter testing brought us back in late Feb. After that concluded it appears we're in a similar configuration to last year, with some improvements among the mid-field. There's been some talking points heading into this first race, aside from the more notable discussion of the corona virus and sporting event planning, and they include Merc's DAS system and Ferrari's unspecified settlement with the FIA over their 2019 power unit's legality. Anyways, we'll see if anyone follows Merc into their FIA legal DAS system loophole pursuit during the season and what, if anything, will come of the paddock heat on the FIA to spill the beans.

3/13/20 - Sorry for the later update folks, but the Australian GP is cancelled. One of the members of the McLaren F1 team tested positive, they pulled out the race and the rest is history. Much like the rest of the sporting world, this may take a few weeks to sort out. 2020 has been a roller coaster so far.

Enjoy your weekends and be safe out there.
