    That sounds about right actually, Ferrari never entered the Indy 500 when it was a 'Formula 1' race, there's 10 or so races where Ferrari did not enter in protest (but North American Racing entered with Ferrari cars) and there's a few races they've missed over the years for various other reasons.

    It's going to be awesome seeing F1 at Mugello, although with the speeds they'll manage round the corners there will no small accidents. I wouldn't put it past a driver or two to have physical issues with the track, from the exit of turn 3 until the entrance to turn 10 an F1 car more or less won't have to brake.

    I know it's wet but, twice on the bounce a Ferrari doesn't make it into Q3 and the other only just scrapes it.

    They'll be happy about Carlos and his performance, this year already looks like a write off.

    As for Hamilton, that's one way to remind everybody who's boss.

    10/10 for Verstappen's ice skating performance.

    Rain is a great leveller for the cars, never expected to see such a gap between team mates like that.

    Vettel has requested an interview with Martin Brindle before the Hungarian gp. :eyebrow:

    There's probably plenty of blame to go around, but let's be real, this team has had 3 WDC drivers (two multi-WDCs) in the past decade and always failed to deliver. Moreover, they somehow manage to find reasons to treat these prize drivers poorly, leading to acrimony in the garage before the eventual inevitable parting of ways. Ferrari needs to be torn down and rebuilt as a professional racing outfit. Which will, of course never happen (because-a they're-a Itaaaaliannn *gestures furiously in Italian*).

    So be it. Keep paying out millions to lose.
