    Apart from his lack of racecraft ie. Every overtake resembles a 12 year old playing gran turismo....has Stroll came of age?

    Hard to tell...

    I mean Stroll (and also Max) both benefited massively from Bottas, Perez and the Ferraris bottling it in various ways early on, so Stroll and Max didn't really have much to do (other than not stuffing it into the wall).

    If he has 5 or 6 good races in a row then yes, but he's had the odd good drive before, then goes right back to tooling about in 15th for the rest of the season.

    Delaying the inevitable?

    Interested to see how these races go. Imola doesnt strike me as an exciting wheel to wheel race despite some very memorable events and dont have many good memories of races at Nurburgring.
    A bit of rain can change everything tho as can it being a 2 day event hopefully.

    Portimao, like Mugello could be interesting, or it could highlight why f1 doesn't go there to begin with.

    Also means Ferrari can get spanked 'at home' three times.

    Will wait and see where it falls on the arcade-realism spectrum. I wouldnt care much for it if was just a reskined F1 game with new tracks. If they are targeting esport then maybe it will have decent wheel support.

    The developer/publisher's previous titles are the NASCAR Heat series and that's about it. I'm not excited.

    Feel sorry for the guy but it was obviously going to happen to someone at some point.

    All the elbow bumping and mask pulling it's hardly a sterile environment is it.

    ...and are we expected to believe that on the flights between countries everyone keeps there masks on

    All things considered F1 has done a decent job... but positives were inevitable, as F1 themselves admitted.

    Yeh that wasn't meant as an F1 overall attack but I've seen people slipping on protocol so to speak.
