Lawrence Stroll gets some bad press from time to time, but the exemplary way his new Racing Point company is paying up suppliers and other creditors shows not everyone in F1 is has the manners of a shark. Good for him.

Formula E has begun testing their 2ND gen cars. Looks more like something you'd see at Le Mans than as an alternate to F1.

Oh did I say 'Brit'? I obviously meant rookie because I'm not partisan obviously!
George Russel at Williams would seem to be a good fit. I also hope that it means they will be getting a little more help from Mercedes (they definitely need it!!).

It looks like Liberty's streaming scheme is what drove NBC out of F1. NBC offered $40 million for a seven year contract extension, starting this year. Liberty's live stream torpedoed the deal. The most optimistic projections showed that they would make $1 million streaming to the U.S. market. That was before the streaming service went live & turned into one huge bug fest.
A source at NBC says that the sluggish forecast reflects the network’s findings. “Formula 1’s audience is older, it’s wealthier and it is very sophisticated. But while they love technology in Formula 1, they don’t want to watch it on their phones or their iPads or their computers. They want to watch it on a big screen."
BTW, the live stream isn't available in the UK as per their contract with Sky.
And that is how we F1 fans here in the States went from one of the best race broadcast commentary crews on the planet to a copy of the Sky feed on ESPN
Fun fact - Sean Bratches, Liberty's commercial honcho, came from ESPN.

It looks likes like Honda is using direct F1 tech transfer for their production CR-V turbos. Some owners of 2017 and 2018 CR-Vs equipped with the new 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 have been reporting stalling and reduced power output, resulting in a top speed of 20 mph. They are promising that the next version will be much better - just like they do with their F1 engines
