Yeah I know . The temperatures from the weather prediction are always *average* temperatures .
This means landward (inland) temperatures are +/- 3C hotter than average temps.

Let us not forget the heat glow from the tarmac on the circuit, this will chew through the tires . As for thunderstorms , we have them always with extreme heat . For the moment we have to hide us for the sun . Sun burns like it's fire in the sky ( never seen) Spectators will also suffer from the sun .


RB will run with a new chassis . From the tests the chassis will save the tires more ...
Anyway . Think everyone would love to see another fight between MAX and Charles . MAX vs HAM would be even better ....

Weather will almost guarantee a HAM victory. He's won the last 10 rain affected races if my memory is correct.

On the highlighted portion: I would hope that we, as fans, can wish for the competition to increase their competence rather than the class of the field stumble. While a W is still a W, there is no glory in beating a downed opponent, only a hollow victory.

SF and RBR need to up their game. McLaren is on the mend and will be much closer to the sharp end of the grid by the end of the year.

Better racing with stronger teams, not winning because of failure. HAM's victory over LEC's failure at the beginning of the season is not what we as fans should want to see.

Cheers-mk

Agreed, from a purely fan of the sport's perspective your right on. But from the perspective of a spectator that just wants to see excitement, an interesting race is an interesting race.

Kinda like that NFL game last season (I can't remember who it was playing, maybe Browns vs someone else?) where the teams individually had horrible records within the NFL, but that individual game was really good because of how evenly matched they were.

I also would prefer even racing from the teams without external factors, but I gotta take an eventful or exciting weekend when we can get it.

im pretty hasty for HAM breaking the victory record of Schumacher.. and we havent watched any race like Ferrari dominance in those years.. so each race that HAM is leading is pretty exciting.. at least for me..

and i guess this time we ll see big cooling gaps on the cars from Merc for not repeating A1..

The Mercs will run in special liveries in Germany.
In 1934 they removed the white paint to make the cars lighter.

I'll be going to the GP, will miss practice due to work but the qualifying and race are on. Have never been in person, but not as excited about F1 since the 90s-2000s.

That doesn't look very nice.

They should have gone for the plain silver look, of Silver Arrows of old.

Perhaps Toto can stop by and offer his services to Mattia.

Mercedes reliability vs Ferrari's unreliability....
Perhaps this is why the Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal's name is attached to their transporter with Velcro....more heads will roll.

At what point do Ferrari leadership start getting canned??

There's literally been at least 1 mistake per race across all areas.

What a shame for Ferrari. This looked like the perfect opportunity for Leclerc to get his first win and for VET to be in the mix but their team failed them.
