Goodness me, Spain was some good watching.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Max is the first person to win beside Vettel, Hamilton or Rosberg since 24th August, 2014.

Yeah it was alright that. My first thought watching the Hamilton/Rosberg crash was that it was all Hamilton's fault but now I think they were a pair of dickheads.

Yeah, I agree with most of that. When Hamilton arrived behind Rosberg he was already on the grass, so I'm not sure what he thought was going to happen.

I think the races are more interesting without the Mercedes!

I can see why it happened, though. The old adage that you can't win the race on the first lap didn't apply so much in their situation at that track as it was fairly likely that the outcome could have been decided in those first few corners. Has Rosberg said anything about it yet? Hamilton seemed quite reasonable about the whole thing, perhaps realising that Rosberg just did what he would have done.

It's been the same for decades. Remove the two leading cars, whether that's Merc, Red Bull or Ferrari, and it's much better

Technically he had the right of a cars width due to having millimetres of wing behind the back wheel, and Rosberg should have been able to determine that given the pace differential.

However, technically too, Hamilton also had a brake pedal.

Rosberg was moving right well before Hamilton got alongside him, though. He'd have had to react like a motherfucker and perhaps bend physics a little to leave enough room, but he could have backed out earlier and then it would have been okay (assuming Hamilton could slow down fast enough to get around the corner). But as you said, both of them could have backed out - hence racing incident.

Here's a gif to show how far behind Hamilton was when Rosberg started covering his line:

Here's the FIA statement:

Both of them get driver of the day, in my opinion :)

No, DHL sponsor the pit times competition.

https://www.formula1.com/content/fom-we ... -2016.html

Unless you mean "they were fastest before this, and just got better" in which case yes.

This is the first official sub-2 second time, though (I think).

Button is in P3 for tomorrow's race!

If the Hulk gets a penalty for not slowing under a yellow then he's on the front row!

Two people got penalties that bumped him up, but he qualified a pure fifth.

It was a drying track, though.

Yeah, the Ferrari looks good this year.

Here's hoping that they and Mercedes are about the same, and we can get some good racing between people who aren't in the same team.

I always like it when the winning driver is from a team that doesn't win the constructor's championship.

There wasn't a lot of overtaking though was there, it seemed like even fairly closely matched cars with the benefit of DRS couldn't get a run on each other. See how it pans out at different circuits but I'm not sure how much wheel to wheel action there's going to be.

There never is at Australia, especially so this year as they're still getting the hang of the cars.

Good result, though!

First GP I have watched in about three years. Cars look a bit weird but I'll get used to them. I don't like Vettel or Ferrari but it's good to see Mercedes having some competition - their dominance in 2014 contributed to me losing interest in the sport.

McLaren have really lost their way haven't they? :(

Yup, McLaren are really hopeless at the moment.

Kamui Kobayashi's just set the fastest ever time at Le Mans.



The LMP1 class is ridiculous. As technologically advanced as F1 cars, but much more reliable!
