    You all know I love Charles, but all three penalties today were nonsense. As Tom rightly says, they dug a hole for themselves with the first one for Lando, so Sergio had to get two for his (more aggressive) moves on Charles.

    But we want racing, surely? (Though Fernando and George did show that you don’t actually need to push the guy on the outside off).

    I thought this might happen , Sad but there you go . I know Australia has very low infection rates ( which is a very very good thing ) I think they need to get their virus jab to star in Ernest .For the sake of the Australian public if nothing else .

    If mods aren’t happy about the COVID comment please feel free to edit ‘ delete . I think it’s all tied in because of the reasons for the sports cancellation .

    Mark Cavendish won another TdF stage today, his 3rd of this Tour and his 33rd TdF win, just one behind Eddy Merckx’s all-time record.

    Edit: Just seen Jasper’s!

    Mark Cavendish wins Stage 13 in Carcassonne, his 34th TdF stage win to equal Eddy Merckx.

    Astounding.

    Carlos Reutemann I meant to add in my first post .

    I always thought he lost the 1981 championship because he had head problems ( not Patrick ) .

    Now although that certainly didn’t help , I watched a Peter Windsor tribute to him today where he said that Carlos raced the Southafrucan race with the promise from Bernie that it would be a championship race .

    He won , the race ultimately didn’t count costing him 9 points !

    barring that he would have been champion .

    The french rugby team playing the Australians earlier today contained a player called “Ibrahim Diallo” - I’m pretty impressed ….. clearly doesn’t just play for Saints then! <yikes>

    It will be interesting to see how the sprint race for qualifying goes on Saturday. There will be the typical style qualification for grid positions for that sprint race tomorrow night.
