Heroes
Oscar Piastri.  First GP win.  He's not the first driver to get their first win with 'extenuating circumstances'.  He earned the win fair and square, drove a great race, and it was fun to see his 'cool as a cucumber' approach to winning.  Looking forward to seeing Piastri in the limelight in the future

Hamilton.  Mercedes seems to have finally woken their champion driver from whatever post 2021 torpor he's been in.  Even got to see some classic Max vs Lewis racing.  I didn't start watching F1 until 1996, I'm sure there are other racers who have been as contentious on track as these two, but they're the ones that stick in my mind with years of on track animosity.

Leclerc.  Sure, he should be doing better, but definitely needed some sort of result, and got it.

Stroll in the top 10.  Stroll seems to be having the most vanilla season of all time.  The team isn't as good as they should be, but Stroll is hanging in with Alonso.  Maybe Alonso has lost a step, which makes Stroll look better.  I don't know.  But Stroll keeps just showing up and doing okay.

Zeroes
Max/Lando.  I understand why the radio broadcasts are public, but I don't want to hear these two 'super stars' whining.  What other sport do we listen to the best of the best just complain about the event we, as fans, are supposed to be enjoying?  If you don't like it, leave.  You're not as irreplaceable as you might think.

Alpine.  I thought they were getting their act together and becoming competitive.  I think they're a good example of how good the sport really is.  There used to be 'big teams' and 'minnows'.  Now they're all big teams.  Even if Alpine is misrun and making mistakes, I feel a team at their level could easily win championships in the 2000s (and they did!).  They're an example of you've got to keep getting better just to stay in the same place, which is a great state for the sport to be in, even if it stinks for Alpine.

Maybe he never went away it seems that while everything is going his way he's fine but once it isn't he's not.
I doubt he'll ever change!

Seems to me when a driver drives a heck of a  race
and has a 6 second lead and his teamie can't make
up the ground maybe he deserves the win. Maybe I'm
wrong :(

Radio from Q1, paraphrased for concision:

Verstappen: [indistinct query]
Lambiase: "What are you worried about?"
Verstappen: "The…" [response drowned out by Perez crashing]
Lambiase: "If it's the rain, you can come back in…" [red flag, camera still looking at Perez who was going to need a scooter to comply]

Had that been a deliberate comedy skit, it could not have been better timed. Unfortunate for the team, though - those were tricky conditions and there were a couple of times it looked like Verstappen could join Perez in the "hit the wall" club (but gathered it up without leaving the track).

Haas has announced that Kevin Magnussen won't be back for the 2025 season:

I'm really disappointed in this. The word is that Ocon is in line to replace him.

The McLaren team hub (hospitality suite and 'home base' for team personnel on the race weekend) has been catastrophically damaged twice this year, first with an electrical fire, and now flooding due to roof failure.

I know that 'these things happen' is a perfectly valid explanation, but asking if it's haunted/cursed is far more exciting.

Swiss tribunal awarded Mazepin Snr $9m and F1 car, it appears Gene has changed his mind since agreeing to arbitration process.
F1 shark club is still alive & well it seems.  :D

When will corporate leaders & bodies learn that basking in F1 glory is best achieved by leaving capable experts to get on with it.  :crazy:

Run the car company and leave F1 team free to rise or stumble.
Only interfere when underperformance means heads must roll.  |-(
