    So...anyone think Honda will fix whatever they need to this year? I just really wanna see Alonso fight for wins again.

    And I like Honda being in F1.

    The drivers are saying it will be even harder to pass with the new setup. Once again, pending a pit screw up or mechanical failure, the race winner will be established on the first turn of the race.

    Or in the pit.

    The McLaren-Honda looks worse than it has since Honda has returned. They won't last the season before McLaren is with another engine supplier.

    Actually I was just reading an article about McLaren speaking with AMG for engines.

    It may happen. Maybe next year.

    But I'm still holding out hope for a Honda turn around...

    I can't believe all the fans running onto the track on the cool down lap. Those idiots with the Ferrari flag looked like they were trying to get hit.

    Yeah it's been a long time since I've seen the fans flood the track before the cars were parked.
    If I'm thinking of the same particular group of idiots (flags, thumbs up, on the track after the pit entry), they knew the cars were taking the pit lane.

    Great opening race! Hopefully it will be a competitive season. One thing that concerned me though: with the extra grip it seemed nearly impossible to pass on the track.

    Yeah there was talk of that leading up to winter testing. There weren't many passes on track (I think I read 5) at this race. Next race will be a little more representative. They're already talking about extending the DRS zones haha.

    On a related note, it's cool that Formula 1 is finally putting official videos on YouTube.

    Power? 1 megawatt (1341bhp) for a weight limited to 600 kilos. That's the biggest power to weight ratio in F1 ever. #RS2027vision

    Great race!  What a battle.  Speed, strategy and bumping tires.  Cant ask for much more.
    I will be going back to Montreal this year!

    Well the weather was shit last year!  Good thing I had models bringing me cappuccinos. :)
    Still waiting to see what kind of tickets I will get this year.  Fingers crossed for another Paddock Club experience.
    Check your PMs as the race gets closer! =)

    Not sure it will happen again, I think that was a one time thing.  Maybe I will get the invite because because McLaren is still pooping the bed. We shall see stay tuned.
