    Looking forward to it especially as C4 has a full weekend of coverage.

    The cars stick to the track so much these days a lot of the high speed corners are flat out, which could give Ferrari enough to give Mercedes something to think about.

    Plot twist, Silverstone has turned some of their asphalt run offs back into gravel.

    Exit of Luffield it seems.

    Do we thank Cosicave for that?

    not606 power influences again!


    As track limits go, Silverstone is not the worst, hopefully other circuits follow suit and bring back strategically placed traps where track limits has become a perennial issue.

    Has there ever been a more appropriately named driver than Lance Stroll? I mean the most inappropriately named was Scott Speed, but....

    Russell has fastest lap in FP3!!!! Well he is only one to set at time!! Pity the Williams can't get off the back of the grid at the moment. Really hope they can pull things together next year.
    Williams getting some great tv time for their sponsors.

    Just to mention if anyone is using a series link to record the F1 then Quali and the race doesn't series link from previous highlights series link. Well that is on Freeview not sure about FreeSat, Sky etc.

    So beware check your scheduled recordings to make sure you will be able to watch the 'Live' F1 on C4.

    Bizarre quali at Haas. Grosjean quicker in Q1 despite reverting to Australia spec, then struggles to get within a second of his own time in Q2!

    What are Ferrari doing with that strategy? Leave Charles on the mediums, surely?
