    I am not sure about Ferrari's strategy with LeClerc. They seemed to have screwed up on that one. But still, not bad going from 10th to 5th.
    The odd thing is that Ferrari seems to win practice but Mercedes turns it up for qualifying and the race.
    Probably the best finishes in that race was McLaren finishing 7th & 8th. Both cars in the points. They aren't where they should be yet but they are a long way from where they were.
    And the Honda power unit seems to have some serious beans.

    If you haven't seen Nico Rosbergs recent interview with Daniel Ricciardo, it's a must see.
    Long but very honest & I'm going to watch more of Nico's interviews, he's awesome.

    Well qualifying for Canada was actually exciting, phew. Some mistakes by Bottas & Verstapen.
    Awesome lap by Vettel.
    Ricciardo pulled a lap out of his hat & starts on soft tyres while those around him are on Mediums.
    First corner is going to interesting at the start.

    Race was really interesting too.
    The results don't do justice to the effort.
    Spoiler alert
    Controversial decision by Race direction for the end.
    But that's racing.

    If you can't watch, then read the report.

    I was actually enjoying the race, then it went all stupid. It will take me a while to get back into F1 after that fiasco. If I do.
    Not only was it a stupid decision, but they took too long to tell the team / driver.
    At least MotoGP is fun to watch.

    This last one was a bit of a sleeper.
    The penalties are the interesting bit. Ricciardo was blatantly stupid in this incident.
    Not sure if the below video will play direct. If not try this link. https://youtu.be/KuH7O6kX4cc

    I flipped on for the talking head to say Roman Grosjean was settled into 7th which was good for him. Watching how awful the track looked with all of the fecking stripes painted along the course had me flipping on.
    Such a dull sport these days. Cars sound like vacuums now, Hoover is close to Dyson who is killing Electrolux, Oreck, Miele and Dirt Devil. Yawn.......

    Mercedes are clearing up in 2019 like Red Bull did a few years back, they do need to spice things up, how about the fastest cars start at the back?
    40 odd powered two wheelers over 40 odd years. Currently in the garage are a 2016 Tuono V4 1100RR and a '79 Honda CB550F

    That would make qualifying a farce, who can go the slowest to get pole.....
