Nice....OMG though, I had forgotten that Croft was such an appalling commentator. Its like listening to fingernails down a blackboard.

I bet Verstappen is praying that it won't rain for this weekends race!

Also real shame for Leclerc last year as he had the race in his poche

I used to be quite an Alonso fan...right until he developed the habit of shooting his mouth off. He had no one tell him to keep his rants...about the team, his engines performance, other drivers or whatever...to himself or behind closed doors.
He was a PR nightmare and it certainly cost him and teams he has driven for.
Which is a shame because he is (was) quite the talented driver especially when winning DWCs in that understeering Renault monster.
Similarly...Someone in Verstappens personal circle should be advising him to stop ranting and be far more circumspect on his car radio and when making media statements...although it may be too late to get a seat at Mercedes...at least any time soon.

yeah especially with the technique Alonso was coping with understeer by sharp steering wheel actions at the slower point of the corners.. he was great at that..

i believe as long as he can shave off some ego and let the team can run by itself as well a bit more things can work for everybody.. he looks like a new person with much less ego it can be good..

Red Bull don't get to "disagree" with the regulations.
" The FIA technical representative observed thought the telemetry during the race that the fuel flow was too high and contacted the team, giving them the opportunity to follow his previous instruction, and reduce the fuel flow such that it was within the limit, as measured by the homologated sensor - and thus gave the team the opportunity to be within compliance. The team chose not to make this correction."

They wanted the performance benefit from exceeding the fuel flow regulations and got disqualified.
Same as they chose to ignore the regulations regarding their front wing flex and got disqualified.

Red Bull and those pesky rules!
