    Default Formula 1 - 2016 Season

    As we prepare for the start of the 2016 season, what are you excited about or still frustrated with. Is this the year that Mercedes falters or perhaps Ferrari reigns supreme?

    Will we Grosjean Haas a good year?

    Ou will Renault finish?

    Did McHonda find 2.5 seconds or will we see more of this?

    Loved Maurizio Arrivabene's expressions. Good on Gene Haas. Need to sustain the passion at those levels.

    ^concur.

    Max 'the baby' Verstap...

    Alonso's car is foreshadowing for McHonda's 2016?

    Mercedes strategy rules once again, but Ferrari looks like a contender again.

    Great to see Danny Ric doing so well in front of his hometown fans.

    It looks like we will have action through the field this year, about time.

    Danny R. with his first pole! Hammy with more gremlins and the a near perfect rage lap. The hulk showing off his muscle. Poor max.

    Great to see McHonda into Q3.

    A forecast of rain tomorrow should make things interesting.

    One of the more fun Monaco races to watch, love tyre strategy.

    WTF Red Bull... poor Danny.

    Hammy with a good drive.

    Perez is getting better, excellent strategy.

    Max learning, Sauber needs 2 new drivers.

    McHonda!!!!

    Lost a lot of respect for Hamilton chatting with Justin Beeeeebs before podium and giving him first sip post? Awful.

    this is the same group that left edmonton - and many edmonton businesses - high and dry when they declared a subsidiary bankrupt so they could take their ball and go home. it's my understanding that the feds and quebec give this event so much support - ie cash - that sponsorship from a business community cautious for a number of reasons isn't necessary. they probably don't need title sponsor money because they have enough of ours.

    Clueless whiner.
    race engineer: do not use 7th gear.
    Rosberg: does that mean skip 7th and go from 6th to 8th.
    race engineer: affirmative:

    Interesting race today at Silverston Lewis Hamilton won his fifth British Grand Prix tying Jim Clark. If you look very carefully at the montage at the beginning of the program as Jim Clark took the chequered flag you can see me in the stands to the left and about half way up. ��
