It's a video about 'live TV', but it's mostly a case study of how the F1 World Feed is generated.  (Trigger warning, they occasionally show Indy Car clips while talking about F1)



I learned some new stuff, like they don't use satellites to transmit the data.

Hell no is my view!  >:(

Just where does Toto get off with this crazy idea that the car in front is not a competitor like any other.  :DntKnw:

Sure teams can expect their own 2 pilots to perhaps play nice, but when drivers from differing teams are expected to defer to either their engine supplier, manager or future employer then it's going to far.  :nono:

Then we get to the question of should a driver go for a risky overtake in F1? - Well at Imola, with few to no chances to get past, when an opportunity presents itself it's absolutely got to be taken. Look at others bottled up for most of race behind one or more others.
Would Senna, Mansel or Michael, even in their early days, have thought twice about going for the gap? 

Well, what does anyone else think?

Heroes

Lewis Hamilton.  I've never seen anyone recover from a crash like that, in a gravel trap, and finish a solid second place.  Even the people running live timing counted him out!

Max Verstappen.  Fantastic start.  Running in a commanding lead on a wet track can lead to inattention which could have easily lead to a DNF, so keeping his head the whole time, especially in his Fastest Lap duel with Hamilton at the end, that's a 'hero' to me.

Lando Norris.  Put in a great race.  Finishing third in a wet race is an accomplishment no matter who you are.  Holding off Lewis Hamilton in a faster car for even a few laps is also about as heroic as a race car driver can do.

Ferrari.  Looks like they've got things turned around from last year.  Understanding they're not looking at wins, much less a championship, seems to have evened things out.

Yuki Tsunoda.  He's driving like a rookie, taking chances that he really doesn't need to, but he's not endangering other racers, so he's taking SMART chances.  Once he gets a feel for what it takes to race an F1 car, he's going to have a bright future.

Zeroes

George Russell.  I know that an F1 race is a series of split second decisions, and a drying track makes things even harder, but expecting two Mercedes to take the wet line on the same lap just isn't good racecraft.

Alpine.  Don't feel like they're ready to race with the big boys yet.  Alonso is looking disappointingly average.

Honourable mention.

Mazepin has already finished more races than I expected this season.

First piece of news from Imola - pit entry resurfacing was photographed 4 hours ago. Yes, the first practise session is on Friday...

The FIA announced Tuesday that all 3 free practice sessions and quali for Imola will be moved forward 1 hour. This is being done as a mark of respect to the Royal funeral for His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, that will take place on Saturday.

FP1:  11:00 - 12:00
FP2:  14:30 - 15:30

Saturday:
FP3:  11:00 - 12:00
Quali:14:00 - 15:00

Should be simple - the present F1 cars must be fastest surely?

Well this article from Motorsport mag has one or two suprises.

I enjoyed reading it in this waiting time between GPs, hope you find it interesting too.

Who knew there was so much going on with this almost mystical element of race cars?   :swoon:  Not me - anyways!!!
