    This season is bad.
    I don't see how it could go any more to shit, but I'm sure we'll find out.

    The way I see it, the worst possible end would be if Mercedes wins every race except Abu Dhabi.

    Actually, the worst would be if Lewis wins every race from now until Brazil, and then Mercedes doesn't win in Abu Dhabi.

    At this point, I hope they could win all of the races, just because they deserve it

    Absolutely. We might want a spectacle (who doesn't?) but right now the team who has nailed the formula, has the right people in the right positions, the right allocation of time and resources is reaping the rewards. Not saying other teams haven't worked hard - they all do - but Mercedes (and especially with LH) have just smashed it.

    What a lesson in managing expectations.

    This season is boring as all hell, but I’m still watching practices, quali and the parade on Sunday because F1 can’t wait for the next procession

    Holy shit best race of the season, and almost could have been slightly ruined by stewards penalizing Max but they didn't. Also fun fact, this is the first race in a long time with no DNF, so we got an amazing race without resorting to safety car drama.

    Great race! Looks like Mercedes need to start all over again for the 12 win streak.

    China 2018 was the last one, though Hartley didn't see the chequered flag he was classified, before that Japan 2016. 7th time ever!

    It's the classic F1 story. Small team gets in bed with shady sponsor. Like Arrows in 1999

    I'm just looking forward to seeing exactly how many cans they sold, and hopefully from that we can work out exactly how many were sold to people outside of r/formula1.

    This might belong in first world problems thread...

    All the merch stands at Silverstone ran out of adult size Lando Norris caps before midday on Friday. I mean, seriously? The lad's having a cracking rookie season, for McLaren, at his home Grand Prix.

    :facepalm:

    Damn! Hopefully they'll have more tomorrow. Have a good weekend, was at Silverstone in 2015 sitting at Luffield/Woodcote.

    We're looking at Abu Dhabi this year.
