    Pretty crappy strategy for Ricciardo.

            Foil yarmulke on for a minute -

            I'm calling jiggery pokery on the failures of renault and probably LeCleric


            Leclerc's energy recovery goes tits up - although reported as the MGU-H.. the coasting into corners would indicate no energy recovery at all.

            Within 100m? of each other - the two renaults go tits up... will be interesting to see what the logs say - could the hulk's engine failure be caused by an ecu issue? can't see why not - no notice, not under full power etc.. then Dan's car essentially turns off.. then neither can be made safe... can't get the battery isolated...

            and then the Jackal retires... three laps from the end? under the safety car?


            remember when the redbulls turned off in singers? supposedly when they went over the tram tracks?


            Just in case I wasn't clear - yes, I think the renaults were attacked with a portable projected energy weapon. :)

                Awesome race. Those first few laps were intense. Shame about the result but congrats to Lewis "Steven Bradbury" Hamilton on the W.

                  What an awesome race - was legit excited to see a new F1 winner and Charles seems to be an awesome kid.

                  Great race too - tons of action up and down the grid. Felt like a F2 race!

                    “Daniel will continue his familiarisation in the car during this week’s test conducting performance-related work."

                    Pretty sure Daniel is familiar with the Renault engine experience

                      Wasn't similar caused by a washing machine or some shit in testing 1 year?

                        It was good to see some pace from Renault early on, let hope they can get things moving along as the season progresses.

                          anyone heard which part of hulks engine decided to leave?


                          also, apparently Hulks poor Qualifying performance was due to the engine being in Limp mode.

                          and apparently Lerclercs engine wasn't a hybrid power issue, but it was running as a V5 when he was down on power towards the end of the race.

                            Probably just a lead fell off the distibutor.

                                So Renault this weekend.


                                1. Run the entire qualifying with engines in safe mode
                                2. Made Ric the only driver in the race who didn't get to pit twice
                                3. Blow up/kill both engines at the same moment, with only 2 laps to go
