Well mate , I heard that Kimi was having a 5H1T before your Hammy went ..
The smell was caused by the Belgian high quality beers !

But I noticed on the grid : Hammy's 5H1T was an emergency situation as well !

Hamilton had a nice long post saying the race should have been cancelled and that waiting for three hours was pointless, but I never heard him say that all day. No driver wanted it cancelled.

Hindsight is always 20/20 and I think the directors clearly wanted to do some form of racing today but unfortunately there just wasn't a window that opened up.

On the other hand if Hamilton was on pole I guarantee you he would be happy with taking 12.5 points. Courtesy of f1troll

IMO only good thing to come out of the race today lol. Pretty happy for George.


Otherwise I guess the work up to this GP was just a bunch of extra repair costs for RB and Mclaren, and more wear and tear for all the teams on their new engines all for nothing lol.




Glad I didn't wake up early for this one lol, especially after a late night of watching MMA.

Currently I have no idea . Didn't got news about the whole situation .

On the other hand : The Francorchamps circuit is going through difficult financial times .
Last year they didn't got incomes by the damn Covid pandemic ,last month the circuit was damaged by the floodings and now It's a bad moment as they planned circuit constructions regarding the safety at Raidillon/Eau Rouge .

Hopefully they are having deep pockets ..

What a bummer. Sucked enough watching at home, feel bad for the fans on track. Spa is one of the best tracks of the year, the weather cheated us.

Oh well, ready for Max Mania next weekend. That place is gonna be rocking!

Have to say this was a joke. Should have hit the golf course this morning instead of watching a “race”.

We are good. All hatches battened down. We inspected the rental property last week and took care of last minute items Friday. Just a matter of waiting now. Winds are gusty but not too bad as I type this. Watching The Mandolorian as I relax.

Thanks for your concern!!

It wasn't about the points received it was really a waste of time. Just like us, we're complaining with the long delay, I'm sure the drivers were thinking the same. At a certain point with all the data, those in charge should be able to determine whether or not a race is possible.

Interesting how events balance out resulting in a zero energy universe.

Weather happens, life isn’t fair. Short term memories will prevail.

Instagram warriors will move on to the next disaster/injustice/cause in the next 48 hours.

Looking forward to the next race.

For those looking to kill some time, check out the Fernando Alonso documentary on Amazon Prime. 2nd season was just released and it gives a genuine look at the life of an F1 driver. Well done series.

WTF

A green flag condition was never shown and only red flag conditions and a race winner was declared....this sounds like something that could happen at a local figure-8 bubba race and not at the highest level of motorsport.

The FIA was quoted as saying "it was impractical to delay the race until the following day"....this is incompetence at the highest level.

Masi stated in an interview that it was a genuine attempt to race under green-flag conditions before the rain got worse. The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile noted that it was impractical to delay the race until the following day. Formula One Management is now planning to have discussions with the teams and the FIA regarding changes to sporting regulations to prevent such a farcical occurrence happening again, trying to seek a more satisfactory alternative minimum requirement is achieved in order for a classification to be achieved as well as discussing the possibility of putting written provisions in the rules to reschedule a race should it be unsuitable to run a race on it's original dateName:  image.jpeg
