    Roger Penske is buying Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indycar series.  Could mean a return of F1 in the distant future.  Indy will be in good hands.  It will be interesting to see if he starts dumping money into the track.

    Possibly, but Texas is re surfacing their track this winter and Miami is still rumoured to get a race in the near future. 
    Would be interesting to see an American driver return

    It was an amazing weekend.  And then Alain Prost sat down next to me on the plane back to New York.  No Shit.
    Chase Carey wants 25 races a year. Entirely possible that more US races will be scheduled.

    Went back and re watched the last 20 laps

    feel bad for Albon, Lewis owned up to the mistake, would have probably passed him anyway 

    Seb is still a D bag!!!!!! 

    Good to see a mix up in the results, hopefully a trend in the coming years with the new rule changes

    congratulations on your first podium Gasly

    Tremendous race. Ferrari can not get out of their own way. What a story for Honda.  Amazing.

    I would veto this transfer if I was Ferrari's boss. There are so many talented young drivers out there. Agree with the Wolff veto though.

    picked up F1 2019 for 75% off and just finished the Australia GP.  the course is challenging due to being so flat.  the 2nd to last turn was one of the more challenging turns to master on any track out there ... up there with the final turn of Laguna Seca that make you curse the gods

    *subject to change
    I liked the Netflix show, but wish it focused on the racing more than the personalities.  Really looking forward to this season.

    Montreal postponed.  Looks like I will not be seeing any F1 this year as we pulled the plug on Austin as well. Oh well. Crazy times.

    Confirmed last year at Ferrari for Vettel.  Odd feeling, I hated him at RBR but grew to like him in his time at Ferrari but I think that is more down to his personality coming through that he is actually a good guy.  Made some mistakes in the last seasons which are heightened because of his winning history and the team he's driving for.
    I kind of hope he goes to Mercedes and Hambone goes to Ferrari so that Schumacher's record isn't broken and the Hambone sheep can look for a new excuse.

    Edit - I just read that Sainz is to be confirmed as his replacement in the next 48 hours (according to "reports").

    Ricciardo and Sainz have been the two rumoured to replace him for the last week or so, the "Sainz announcement in 48 hours" is new.

    Oh Danny? I really like this guy! He reminds me of Barrichello. Two of the funniest guys in F1. Competent pilots as well.

    Yeah I'd be ok with either driver to be honest, I like them both.

    Races without spectators, hard to imagine!
    Even harder to imagine is the venues paying F1's prices without spectators.

    Ricciardo to McLaren. Where will Vettel land? I would love to see Racing Point scoop him up since the big three wont touch him.
