      Been to a few gps (Melbourne, Monaco, Malaysia and Montreal) and I would say one thing that is really useful regardless of where you sit is to have a good timing app, preferably with commentary.

      It's really easy to get lost to what is happening at the track. You often can't really make much out on the big screen and the commentary is drowned out. It's very easy to just sit there and have no idea where people are in the race.

        Thinking with the grandstand approach is based on what we want our experience to be. This will be nopics' first race weekend of any kind and we like the certainty of having set seating. We spent some time last night looking at videos taken from the various seating options (including GA) and both felt that a view over either the 1st/2nd or last turns whilst being able to see the start and pits was the view we wanted.
        Last time I went we sat in the Schumacher stand and it was honestly pretty crap. We had the afternoon sun in our faces and the view of the cars coming through had no variety (other corners you can see different lines etc). The only advantages were that you could see people going into the pits, the screen was visible and I spent the time with my dad and brother. I'd go just about anywhere else. Also, be prepared for your phone to constantly lose connectivity and for the timing app to be basically useless. I got it working about half way through the race and by then nothing interesting was happening (typical Aus GP).

        Good luck with the stand selection!

              And just stepping into a new role too.

              I really hope that if I even manage to make it to his age, that I have half the drive he has.

                    Has been for some time - Bottas is a bike fan of cycling, and riding her like a bike it seems.

                      Had Rob Smedley on a work call the other day discussing what they’re doing with data in F1 now, and how they’re using AI/ML etc to provide new data (the AWS insights stuff on the TV), was really good. I didn’t get the chance to ask if Fernando was faster than Felipe.

                        Did you tell him the AWS stuff is still utterly shit?

                              I’m pretty sure the only AI and ML in the AWS stats we see is an excel spreadsheet that averages a bunch of numbers and “predicts” the outcome.

                              there is literally nothing in the stats shown that wouldn’t be a flat “model”.

                              All they’re doing to leveraging the P2/P3 race sims lap time data and mapping that to in race pace, tyre compound and age and coming out with a bunch of “predictions” that really are more like “XX driver is 1.2 secs a lap faster, so it will take laps to make up a 21 sec deficit”.

                              What the Teams do back in their HQs will be way way more interesting.

                                He's got a type and he sticks with them. Good on him (plus you know that if you give him team orders he will dutifully come second)
