    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    It was brilliant! I'm no fan of Hamilton but he showed his class in those last few laps.

    Made a bold prediction on a WhatsApp group before the race that there would be a safety car on lap 1 because of Mazepin crashing.

    Going to make another bold prediction now - we won't see Mazepin in F1 again.

    When the results came in and I saw my points I thought that I'd done pretty well only to find I'm 2nd bottom...

    Need Alonso to have better races.

    The league is clearly unsafe to continue due to COVID so I think we stop it there.

    3rd bottom here. If Kimi, Russell and Gasly can start picking up points that would be grand .

    I refuse to be demoted from my rightful position. I'll take it to Judge Rinder if I have to.

    Imola this week, great track but a bit too narrow for modern F1 cars. Has anyone made any subs in the fantasy league?

    Hamilton on pole, Perez second and Max third. 0.08 separate the first 3. Game on for tomorrow.

    Itís what he does. Max made a mistake on his last flying lap and Lewis didnít, he very rarely does. I reckon weíre going to see the best of Hamilton this year. As much as I want to see Max win the title, Iím looking forward to the battle.

    Good race. Think Russell will be in a bit of trouble with Mercedes - not worthy of a penalty from the stewards but think it was still more his fault than Valterriís.

    For Mazepin to finish over a minute behind his team mate in a half distance race essentially is embarrassing.

    Supreme from Lando today too.

    Formula E.

    I don't like it, it's like sitting in the dentists chair listening to it, but in the absence of anything else I liked on the telly I've just watched the Valencia ePrix.

    On a wet/dry track with a record number of safety cars (5) an exciting race was turned to farce as most ran out of electricity for the last lap!

    Maybe not the showcase the electric car lobby were looking for.

    Tune in again tomorrow, hopefully they will have an extra 50p for the meter.

    Thatís hilarious. Youíd think theyíd have some kind of contingency in place for the cars running low on electricity.

    I don't mind formula e, the sound of it is a bit strange, but races tend to be exciting. Part of the strategy is driven by the need to keep energy consumption within a set limit each race.

    Every time there is a safety car period the FIA reduce the amount of available charge to the drivers so that they have to manage their energy consumption through the race and can't just go flat out the whole time. It means the teams have to manage the set up if the car to try to maximise performance but also make it to the end of the race.

    The race distance is 45mins + 1 lap, so the race distance isn't a set length.

    The teams that ran out of energy are blaming the FIA for making a reduction so late in the race which meant they had no time to recover and the FIA are blaming the race leader at the time for going too fast under the safety car meaning that he crossed the line 15seconds before the 45mins, meaning the cars had to complete a lap more than the FIA had anticipated.

    Given the cars all had enough charge to finish and they are just software limited, surely the FIA could have just not made the reduction in the last lap and let them race?

    Iíve never actually watched a full race yet, but it seems they need to iron out a few problems so that it doesnít happen again.

    I don't think he's quite done enough yet to get himself proclaimed as the worst (or even top five worst) but he is sliding in the rankings. Inoui, Ide, Deletraz, Rosset - can think of quite a few 90s and 00s pay drivers that just now are worse.

    At least he didnít crash today. Itís quite annoying that heís taking the seat of a potentially talented driver because heís can afford to pay to drive. F1 should find a way to fund these teams better, the big teams should put their young drivers in the smaller teams and pay for it. I presume this is whatís happening with Russell and Schumacher, but there needs to be more of it. Guys like Mazepin and Latifi arenít bringing anything to the sport other than money.

    Formula 1 has always had untalented pay drivers, in fact it allowed many teams like Minardi, Arrows, Footwork, Forti, Pacific and the like to operate. In fact, I miss teams like that because on the once in four season occasion that a team like Minardi won a world championship point it felt like they'd won the title.

    It's just now that the grid is smaller and that there are a lot less privateer teams that it's more noticeable IMO.
