        So am I, but I think the circuit being a lot newer will take away a little bit of pucker factor compared to Mugello.

        Its still going to be another exciting weekend, with the drivers and teams finding their feet, and the variables that will throw up.

        Hoping Dan can get another solid result, and that McLaren have a stronger race than the last race where they went right off the boil.

            This place is a rollercoaster. is already cool as fuck. Corners completely blind, huge elevation, high load corners, hard enforcement of track limits. And absolutely no grip lol.

              I'm thinking each season should have at least 1 wildcard race. These old school tracks are much better to watch.

                Verstappen and stroll crash knto each other, gasley catches fire.

                Bottas topped both sessions, with Hamilton second in fp1 and eighth in fp2.

                Lando Norris third for McLaren. Ferrari better with Leclerc fourth two places ahead of Vettel.
                Sainz in there with 5th
                Dan in 13th.....

                    It certainly looks wild on TV, and is giving the drivers a lot to think about...the tyre graining is fierce, and nobody seems to be that comfortable yet.

                    Its just a shame that the final corner is a long fast curve, as after a few laps, cars wont be able to follow close enough, and the drs may be a moot point.

                    Q3 will be an exciting session....Bottas for pole?

                      I think this season has showed how much the show is improved with some new tracks. Imagine if there was a rule that apart from a few sacred ones (Monaco, Monza etc) you had to alternate each year? So, Melbourne alternating with Adelaide. A bit organisationally challenging, but I reckon it means you get huge events.

                        Yep, the teams not having relevant data to look at before the event means far more difficulty finding the optimal setting quickly, coupled with drivers adapting to the tracks a different rates, which all adds up to a more exciting show.

                        The only issue with lots of alternating races is that Liberty probably wouldnt be able to make as much money in the long term, due to race fees having to be lower to entice various tracks, to invest a lot for just a 1 year deal. More of an issue with street circuits where set up/pack down costs are aatronomical if you dont already own the gear, like Melbourne does. 10km + of barriers and saferty fencing cant be cheap...

                              Gutted for Bottas to be pipped at the post after being ahead in every other session.

                              Seems odd in Q3 for the team to send Lewis out so much earlier than Bottas, so he could do 3 laps to his 1.

                              Looking forward to the race, regardless.
