I'm honestly not a huge Alonso fan. I honestly think he's over the hill now, but we'll see.Fernando Alonso has been incredible with testing for Alpine. They're going to be very interesting to watch this year.
That's really impressive I had no idea. I wonder after he retires if a team brings him on to consult on their cars or something.I'm honestly not a huge Alonso fan. I honestly think he's over the hill now, but we'll see.
What I did find fascinating over the weekend, however, is that listening to the F1 commentators apparently Alonso has made the bold claim that every time he joins a team, he increases their speed and cuts 0.5 seconds off the average lap time. And that's not just his car, but his teammates car too.
So the F1 commentators thought this was too good to be true and they dug into the data... and it is true
So credit where credit is due.
If Honda is leaving F1 they're going out with a bang i guess. If they think it's more powerful than Mercedes' engine last year that's remarkable.Interesting article on Honda's new powerplant for F1 this year. I thought they couldn't really change the engines... this sounds major.
"The purpose is to change the shape of the combustion chamber while also reducing the overall size of the engine, lowering the centre of gravity, and changing the airflow on the camshaft. Cylinder bore spacing has also been shortened to make it more compact."
Honda’s 2021 Formula 1 engine for Red Bull is smaller than the “size zero” concept pursued in its McLaren days. This is how it achieved itthe-race.com
Looks like the streak is over! Hamilton gets the job done! Also great race for Yuki Tsunoda
Everyone wants to get the most out of their cars before the regulation changes kick in next year. I think it's going to come down to the wire for the driver and constructor championships.Damn... Max was soooo close. I think when he gave back the position at the end he gave too much to Hamilton.
Overall it was an actually fantastic race though. This could very well be the best season in decades.
