Good grid for Monday morning.
Piastri decision to go to McLaren may have ironically saved Dan’s career. Demonstrating how bad their car really is what may keep the memory of the good Dan was in a better car.
P19 Piastri with a broken McL
should have stayed with Alpine
If you have a chance watch the formula e race at Monaco. So good with cars that can overtake on the course!
Might be no race this weekend as Imola is under flood threat.
yep - race cancelled
the decision has been taken not to proceed with the Grand Prix weekend at Imola.
The Formula 1 community wants to send its thoughts to the people and communities affected by the recent events in the Emilia-Romagna region. We also want to pay tribute to the work of the emergency services who are doing everything they can to help those in need.
Following discussions between Formula 1, the President of the FIA, the competent authorities – including the relevant Ministers, the President of the Automobile Club of Italy, the President of Emilia-Romagna Region, the Mayor of the City and the promoter – the decision has been taken not to proceed with the Grand Prix weekend at Imola.
The decision has been taken because it is not possible to safely hold the event for our fans, the teams and our personnel and it is the right and responsible thing to do given the situation faced by the towns and cities in the region. It would not be right to put further pressure on the local authorities and emergency services at this difficult time.
Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “It is such a tragedy to see what has happened to Imola and Emilia-Romagna, the town and region that I grew up in, and my thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the flooding and the families and communities affected.
“I want to express my gratitude and admiration for the incredible emergency services who are working tirelessly to help those who need help and alleviate the situation – they are heroes and the whole of Italy is proud of them.
“The decision that has been taken is the right one for everyone in the local communities and the F1 family as we need to ensure safety and not create extra burden for the authorities while they deal with this very awful situation.”
FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem said: “My thoughts and those of the entire FIA family are with those affected by the terrible situation in the Emilia Romagna region. The safety of everyone involved and recovery efforts are the top priority at this time.”
Weird to leave F1 only to come back.
Honda have done that lots of times
That quickly though? I mean why leave and come back after 2 years?
Then again, maybe someone at Red Bull annoys them.
I’d guess the ‘leave’ decision was made for marketing/business reasons when they weren’t winning and then the ‘stay’ decision was made when they were winning.
That’s where i’d like to watch a race from.
is the shittest race of the calendar done yet?
No it’s on right now.
Perez hits the wall in Q1.
Qualifying is definitely the race. Still my fave though.
