I honestly thought they would try something different. Both drivers have under performed this year as far as I can tell.  Would have been nice to give someone else a chance. Or maybe Haas are simply admitting that their car is indeed that bad.

I'm not making it up!
https://www.autosport.com/f1/feature/9521/why-f1-teams-should-back-the-reversed-grid-revolution

Why would they turn F1 into a farce especially after qualifying in Italy what would go on to get yourself further up the grid when reversed?
When I started watching F1 it was about the fastest cars and the skill of the drivers not reverse grids and flappy rear wings.
I'm afraid its bring back Bernie and get rid of Liberty.

Not sure if there is any validity to this, but the F1 teams want to 'fix' Saturday and replace the current qualifying format with a mini-race.

Clearly the Monza qualifying showed that the current system can be 'gamed' to the point of ridiculousness, but we've all followed F1 long enough to know that ANY rules in F1 will eventually be bent into a pretzel that makes a mockery of the concept of 'rules'.

If F1 wants to create value for paying spectators, maybe go back to the original 'qualifying' of taking the fastest time from practice.  Replace Qualifying with a fourth practice session, and see how many fans skip Friday if it means missing the possible pole position lap.

Alain Prost say that Nico Hulkenberg lost his ride at Renault because he was too negative.


"We don't want pessimistic drivers, which is why we opted for Ocon. He is very motivated after being out for a year. Nico is quite negative, but he's also right about certain things. But we have to look forward, and a driver's negativity doesn't work for us, especially in a difficult season."

I find his statement about lack of development for next season of concern. I wonder how many other team will be looking past next season for the new-spec 2021 cars.

This time it looks like it's really happened.

It looks like the on again-off again saga of Haas F1 & Rich Energy Drinks is finally off for good. The team has issued the following statement on their website:

Haas F1 Team and Rich Energy have amicably agreed to end their partnership together in the FIA Formula One World Championship with immediate effect. While enjoying substantial brand recognition and significant exposure through its title partnership of Haas F1 Team in 2019, a corporate restructuring process at Rich Energy will see the need for a revised global strategy. Subsequently, Haas F1 Team and Rich Energy concluded a termination of the existing partnership was the best way forward for both parties. Haas F1 Team would like to express its thanks and best wishes to the stakeholders at Rich Energy.

https://www.haasf1team.com/news/haas-f1-team-statement-rich-energy

From what I've gathered from other sources, the cars will continue to wear the black & gold livery for the remainder of the season, without the Rich Energy logos.

What was going on in Q3?  Everybody playing chicken and they all lost out.  Wonder what the investigation is going to result in.  I would give the pole to Sainz just to punish everyone for that stunt.
