I would not want to be Cyril right now.
One driver out in Q1, the other in Q2 (at the top, albeit). And both customer cars in Q3 just behind the big 3.
Not to mention where the ex-customer put their car (well, at least one of them, Gasly's ghastly!)

Sometimes, situations aren't fair. Max Verstappen's pole time of 74.572 seconds was 0.878 seconds faster than Pierre Gasly's best lap. How much of that difference should we attribute to Gasly being bad and how much of it is due to Verstappen being the best driver in the field right now? Would Daniil Kvyat or Alexander Albon be able to match Max's performance if they were driving the second Red Bull? Kvyat already lost that seat once because he wasn't performing as well as Verstappen, and Max is driving better now than he did then.

He's made fun of by the drivers ahead, targeted by the drivers behind (and fans like me, though my opinions are of no value or impact :) ). Ouch, not a good time to be him. That said, I feel for him, given the immense pressure he finds himself under.

For all of Gasly's poor performance, I have to say that RBR has never seemed the kind of place that has bothered to mentor or mentally support any driver who is not the favoured one. Ricciardo was the only one in such a position who succeeded (and even then, that was only against a Vettel who was negotiating his exit, things went sour once Max arrived), every one else from Webber onwards has been short-changed by the team.

Kvyat's reasonable form this year after a stint away from them is probably the most striking proof of Red Bull's perform-or-perish conveyer belt approach to drivers. So, it's not unsurprising they're not finding new fodder for their drivers mill.

Alexander Albon is being promoted to the Team to drive alongside Max, while Pierre will return to the Red Bull sister team, Scuderia Toro Rosso.


Barely a week after saying that they intended to see out the season without any driver changes, RBR have elected to promote Alex Albon into the big leagues, making Toro Rosso the squad of demoted drivers.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/rena ... o/4513205/

Season average of each team's fastest lap as a percentage of the fastest lap for that weekend:
100.091 Mercedes
100.489 Ferrari
100.744 Red Bull / Honda
101.676 McLaren / Renault
101.798 Haas / Ferrari
101.888 Renault
102.021 Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
102.091 Toro Rosso / Honda
102.408 Racing Point / Mercedes
104.373 Williams / Mercedes

The gap from 4th to 9th is smaller than the gap from 1st to 3rd. The midfield race is tight.

The gap from 9th to 10th is larger than the gap from 2nd to 9th. As pathetic as that is, it's actually closer than Williams were to the rest of the field earlier this season.

Silly season is progressing.
As expected, Valtteri Bottas will retain his Mercedes seat alongside Lewis Hamilton next year.
Esteban Ocon will actually get the Renault seat alongside Daniel Ricciardo next year that he was promised for this year.
Nico Hulkenberg is looking for a 2020 ride and Gunther Steiner is looking at him as a possible replacement for Romain Grosjean in the Haas alongside Kevin Magnussen next year.

The shorthand version. Dismal weekend for racing fans with the death of Anthoine Hubert in the F2 support race on Saturday. Prayers for his family and friends.. Ferrari on front row in qualifying, LeClerc head and shoulders above the pack, Vettel again looking human, with Mercedes in form right behind. First lap crash takes out Verstappen, who lost his steering and eventually hit a wall, with Raikonnen sustaining enough damage to where his Ferrari powered Alfa Romeo could not compete up front. Ho hum race except for Hamilton catching and passing Vettel three quarters of the way in, but could not quite catch LeClerc at the end, (maybe one or two more laps), who now has his first Grand Prix victory. Rough day for Lando Norris, running P5 all day behind Ferrari and Mercedes, until engine failure at the beginning of the final lap. All in all, not as exciting as the final month before the summer break.

Now for the real question. Where the "heck" is JAE? The season is not over, yet.

I know the format for the site has changed, but without the F1 discussion, it seems like a ghost town.

My two cents.

I was supposed to be vacationing near Jupiter Inlet, but Dorian has caused me to spend the first weekend of my vacation in Tyria, instead.


It was good to see Charles LeClerc get a well-deserved first victory after missing out on at least two opportunities earlier this season.

It was a really tough break for Lando Norris that his Renault engine gave up one lap short of the finish. He was all alone in P5 all day, easily clear of the rest of the pack and easily far enough behind Ferrari and Mercedes that he wasn't trying to mix it up with them.

Expect Ferrari to be even stronger next week at Monza, the one race of the season that most favors high horsepower and low drag. Although the customer cars at Haas and Alfa Romeo took the new upgraded Ferrari engine this week, the works team saved the introduction of the fresh powerplant for their home race. Maybe Vettel will break his year-long win drought or maybe Leclerc will get his second win.

Watching the excellent racing in the mid-field makes me wish even more fervently that the people running the sport manage to right the ship and make distributions to the teams more equal instead of allowing Mercedes and Ferrari to spend their way to massive performance advantages. I'd be fine with the cars being slightly slower overall if the racing were closer. Since the mid-field racing is so close, one mistake in driving or in strategy can result in a significant change in positions. What do you suppose Danny Ricciardo was thinking as everyone but the two Williams passed him near the end of the race to drop him out of the points? He dropped from P7 on lap 33 to P15 on lap 42 as he was passed by Kvyat, Albon, Giovinazzi, Gasly, Hulkenberg, Stroll, Magnussen and Grosjean.

I didn't get the Formula 2 race here, but folks need to remember the risk of fatalities when we're arguing about stewards' penalties for unsafe driving.

Remember Toro Rosso in 2017, after they announced their move to Honda power? It felt like the Renault in the Toro Rosso was blowing up as much as the Honda all of a sudden :)

I don't subscribe to the notion that Renault might be indulging in sabotage, but I do believe that there is an element of "product binning" at play that is inherent when there is a works team involved as well as customer teams, and given the fragility of the Renault PU, it might be coming to light under race conditions.

The final runs in Q3 were farcical, and had me laughing as everyone masterfully tripped over themselves.

All those drivers, angling for a tow, but still petrified of giving a close competitor a tow.

To steal a popular phrase from Guenther Steiner: "they looked like a f***ing bunch of wankers".

Not like he was ever really "in".
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.

Standings after fifteen of twenty-one races
527 Mercedes (out of 660 possible)
394 Ferrari
289 Red Bull / Honda
89 McLaren / Renault
67 Renault
55 Toro Rosso / Honda
46 Racing Point / Mercedes
35 Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
26 Haas / Ferrari
1 Williams / Mercedes


296 Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes (out of 390 possible)
231 Vatteri Bottas, Mercedes
200 Charles Leclerc, Ferrari
200 Max Verstappen, Red Bull / Honda
194 Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari
69 Pierre Gasly, Toro Rosso / Honda
58 Carlos Sainz, McLaren / Renault
42 Alexander Albon, Red Bull / Honda
34 Daniel Ricciardo, Renault
33 Daniil Kvyat, Toro Rosso / Honda
33 Nico Hülkenberg, Renault
31 Kimi Räikkönen, Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
31 Lando Norris, McLaren / Renault
27 Sergio Pérez, Racing Point / Mercedes
19 Lance Stroll, Racing Point / Mercedes
18 Kevin Magussen, Haas / Ferari
8 Romain Grosjean, Haas / Ferrari
4 Antonio Giovinazzi, Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
1 Robert Kubica, Williams / Mercedes
0 George Russell, Williams / Mercedes

While Ferrari's team managers probably felt good about manipulating their race strategy for the sensitive Sebastian Vettel to get his first victory in 13 months, they run the risk of alienating their new young star with these shenanigans. Leclerc isn't like Bottas to continue to meekly accept team orders as when Mercedes instructed him to slow down and let Hamilton ahead of him.

Lewis Hamilton has come out very much against any reverse-grid qualifying races, but it's competitive overtaking on the race track that most race fans like to see, not cars trundling around at the front of the pack running at 80% without any overtaking.

We may have a recipe for some overtaking this weekend in Sochi:
First, move all of the Honda-powered cars down the grid from where their speed would normally place them (as each of the four takes another fresh spec 4 engine to get ready for the next race at Honda's home in Suzuka):

Additionally, sprinkle in some rain to make the drivers' skill and bravery more relevant and fiddly aerodynamics and boring tire management less important:
