Such a terrible move. Sad thing is Ferrari made a bunch of changes to the cars they were wanting to test and didnít even get a lap out of em

Well the INEOS sponsored cars were first and second I see. Maybe they will give us tickets or something since I work there. Not holding my breath.

Just watched the Hungarian Grand Prix. Seems like everyone else is just racing for second place.

Yeah...Hamlin is a beast & mercedes has got his car on steroids or something.

Enjoyed watching the tire strategy & was a pretty clean & uneventful race.

Yep. Never knew there was a tire strategy. Totally fascinated by these races. Must be a hoot to be at one of these races. Added attending one of these races to the to-do list. Actually Iíve never been to any car race other then illegal back road drag races when I lived in Mississippi.

Thumbs up

I just got this email this morning concerning our suite tickets! Well, that leaves us 0-3 for races this year.......but it does save me about $30K overall for something else the girls might want.

2020 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix Update
After ongoing discussions and close collaboration with our partners, we can confirm that unfortunately the 2020 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix will not take place this year. As a result, your ticket deposit will automatically roll over and hold your spot in line for the 2021 race.

Your company owner is looking like a genius sir. I could see the back wall in the garage also had INEOS on it. Tell him congrats on his investment! The race in Hungary was a masterclass! Next two weeks in Silverstone are going to be magical and the global audience will be off the charts.

Happened to catch qualifying for tomorrow’s race & Mercedes is on fire...ham & bot both set new track records With third 1.5sec behind pole sitters time. Getting close to 200mph on the big straight.

The lap times are getting crazy, granted they aren't doing those during the race. I couldn't believe how much faster they were than an indycar at the track in austin, the driver looked pretty winded after qualy today I'm sure the G forces are nuts, it makes you wonder how much faster they can continue to go before they start having driver black out like what happened with CART at texas motor speedway in 2001.

Those guys know more than I ever will, but why in the wild wild world of sports did 2nd place pit knowing hams tire was out?? Surely staying on the track with only 1-2 laps to go makes more time than stopping for new rubber??

He ended up what...5 seconds behind??

I donít think he had blown his tire yet. However, I still donít understand why put him with 1 lap left. He had such a large buffet, just take it easy the last lap. Max should have won.

That Red Bull pit stop seemed absurd.
I heard Max say the decision was to get new tires and go for fastest lap, which results in 1 point. And they got it..

But had Red Bull not capitulated and stayed out, they would have won the dang race.

Absolutely!

I don’t recall ever watching a race where the winner came across the finish line with a flat tire and sparks flying! Very dramatic final 3-4 laps.

For sure Hams tire was out when they called the pit...he was only 4-5 seconds behind at the flag so it was definitely a bizarre call that allowed for a 6th win for ham at the brit prix.

The red bull cars tire had 50 cuts in it on that last stop, he likely would have had a blown tire that last lap too, there was debris on the track they missed https://racer.com/2020/08/03/verstap...at-final-stop/ He stopped to get fastest lap and the points that go with it, they don't refuel so at the end of the race the cars are the lightest/fastest they are all race. I never thought I would enjoy formula racing more than nascar but this year so far I have, it was crazy watching the lead go from 30 seconds to 5 in half a lap, those spaceship cars are nuts!

Yes, when Verstappen boxed only Bottas had blown a tire. Hamilton noted on live F1 feed something must have been on the track as it suddenly went flat. Redbull just made the call for fastest lap a few moments too soon......but it was the right move not knowing the very near future! Not sure about the football analogy "Auburn versus Alabama" however. That trend has changed alot also.....only a 9 game gap. Reminds me of how Ferrari always took the checkered flag.....days gone by as the competition grows! Mercedes is running flat out from practice rounds, qualifying and race day. F1 aint messing around.

@bossbowman - thanks for the link to the article. Now it makes a whole lot more sense.

Yes, MB is completely dominating right now, but this is very cyclical. Over the years, I have seen the same from McLaren, then Williams, then Ferrari, then Red Bull.

Iím rooting for either McLaren or Ferrari!

I'm rooting for anyone but ham as it's tiring seeing the same person on the pole & top of the podium...the chap has a ton of driving talent & strong machine.

I really liked that track...amazing how they were taking turns at 150mph. Tire management won today.

Agreed, this tire drama is bizarre. It had some exciting moments for sure.

Well got your wish today, I guess it was the tire compound change???, being on the same track I would have thought Mercedes would have dominated again although development does happen at a crazy pace in F1. Same team winning is nothing new in F! it cyclical, although I didn't follow the series back then Ferrari and Schumacher used to win all the time in the 90's and early 2000's, check out this car from back when Williams was dominant
