Heroes:
Hamilton showing how champions snatch victory from the jaws of midfield running.  After qualifying and a poor start, no one would have been disappointed by a podium for the 44 car, but he won, convincingly.  Over 50 seconds to second place?  Those are 1950s finishing numbers.

Verstappen.  Second place?  For real?  He's not a champion yet, but only because he drives in the Lewis Hamilton epoch.  Red Bull still knows how to win, a solid effort from driver and team to produce a second place when even scoring points seemed like a stretch.

Sainz.  I fully expected him to be second fiddle to LeClerc at Ferrari, but I think he's settled into a great fit.  I think he might be the piece to lead the scuderia back to championships.  A great race from a driver who really is talented, skilled, and ready to take the opportunities that come up.

Noris... it should have been his win, but Lewis and Mercedes really got into his head and stole the win from him.  It's a lesson learned, but he's going to have nightmares about this until he actually wins.  A great dry weather drive, choosing his moments and dealing with what a driver needs to deal with... in the dry.

Russell.  Sometimes getting that 'vote of confidence' is all you need to go from good to great.  Russell has the backing of Mercedes, not just as a teammate of Hamilton, but his replacement.  It's helped him put in some truly solid performances.  He might be best on Saturdays instead of Sundays, but you've  got to have something to build on.

Zeroes
McLaren.  It's your job to support the driver.  Of course, Noris was in control of when he came in, but he really doesn't have all the information.  Mercedes knows that Lewis has final call, but there is a trust/rapport that Lewis usually has the information he needs to make a call.  Noris isn't ready to fight for wins, but neither is McLaren.

We thought this year would be another Mercedes cake walk.  Or that the only story would be a showdown between Hamilton and Verstappen.

Instead, we're seeing a resurgence of 'the big three' teams.  Ferrari, McLaren and especially Williams have been almost comically incompetent in the turbo hybrid era, and yet here they are qualifying 1-2-3.

Sure the rain helped, and Hamilton getting lost on his way to the pits helped out too, but it was a solid performance from cars/drivers that I certainly didn't expect in March of 2021.

I'm glad the back half of 2021 is more surprises than predictable.

Haas has resigned Shumacher and Mazepin for the 2022 season. No real surprise. As a Haas fan, I'm very happy that the team will still have Mick and a great big pile of fertilizer rubles.

Check out the official picture. Mick sure looks a lot happier than Niki.

This was a first. A regular feature of pre-race TV broadcasts here in the States is having a driver do a lap of the track in the pace car (aka safety car in the rest of the world). Romain Grosjean did it for this past weekend's race at Laguna Seca. He put the pace car into the tire barrier at the entry to the pit lane.



Seriously, Grosjean has become a very popular driver in IndyCar. He finished third at Laguna and got the biggest cheers of anyone on the podium.

He did get a little lesson in American style racing from former NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson in The Corkscrew:

I'm quite unsure what the governing body want to do as yet another gimmick is indicated. Why they think this is going to attract a new younger audience I really don'y know.

He just doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.
Mercedes have not made an issue of any possible injury to Hamilton and Hamilton has just said that some stiffness and headaches have got worse so he thinks he should get checked before the next race.
No 'song & dance' yet it could have been so much worse.
But Marko still has to make callous and unnecessary remarks. The Red Bull PR machine must be cringing!
