I was on about the pre-race cheese-fest with all the drivers coming out of a fog-filled tunnel, all announced by some guy in a lairy white suit who seemed to think he was at the WWF.

Jesus... it was agony to watch.

I have only started following when Max Verstappen started getting in the news over here. Not to familiar with the whole F1 thing yet.

I kind of liked the WWF back in the early 90's. Never been a fan of racing.

Max Verstappen is a decent driver - just needs to be a bit less reckless.

Dunno if you're aware but Jos Verstappen (Max's dad) was one of the main reasons why in-race refuelling was banned, because of this (he was fine, by the way, except for some minor burns):

Yeah, that move on Raikkonen was rather nice in particular.

Pretty good race to be fair. I am a bit gutted not to see him on the podium and to be fair putting a penalty point on his license for an evasive, but clean overtake seems way over the top from the stewards.

He was all four wheels off the track (by quite a way, too), and under the rules he exceed the track limits to gain an advantage.

The pisser is, sometimes they enforce that rigorously, and sometimes they don't give a flying shite. I don't have an issue with the penalty, but I do with the consistency with which they enforce it.
