@RaceControl Does this instance not federate with elekk.xyz? Trying to follow @aetios@elekk.xyz and I can't find that account from this

Haven't even caught up on the yet...maybe I'll get the time tomorrow

as if the Silverstone team (Racing Point Force India Whatever) weren't already complete heroes in my eyes

Yesterday I spotted the car behind me had the same bad driving habits I do...nice to spot someone else with a little competitive experience

Bottas merely 0.366 down on Vettel right now despite medium tyres

Qualifying will be close even if it doesn't rain tomorrow morning and wash the surface

At first I thought Merc were being far too cautious and conservative keeping Bottas but

this year the driver merry-go-round has basically been a total mess so far and I imagine how nice it must be to not have to worry about any of that and just get on with the actual racing

"Okay you guys can take over the Force India entry but you'll need a new name if you're racing. Oh, and you'll lose all your points. What name do you want me to put down"

"err..."

If this weekend is the end of the Silverstone team (originally Jordan, recently Force India, will be a new name again if it does survive) I am going to be so so gutted.

They've had their ups and downs but their achievements in the sport are incredible for one of the smallest budgets and personnel numbers.

It's a week short of twenty years to the day of their greatest race, that unbelievable 1-2 at Belgium in 1998.

Regarding Wickens

it'll be a huge shame if he never races again but he's a young guy with serious focus and drive, he'll be successful at whatever he chooses to do. At this point I just hope he is okay.

Any word on who's going to be at Toro Rosso next year? Anyone want to have a guess?

Vettel has been nowhere near good enough at Ferrari and Enzo would have sacked both drivers by now. They have the best car and the reason they aren't leading both championships is clear.
