    F1 Heineken Grande Premio De Portugal 2021

    This was a great race in Portimao last year, so hopefully it delivers again this weekend. The weather is unfortunately looking fine for all 3 days, so we are unlikely to see the skating rink we got at the start of the race last year, but at least the track lends itself well to great racing in the dry too

    The DRS zone on the main straight is being shortened by 120 metres as it was far too effective last year, and they have also added a new DRS zone on the short straight between turns 4 and 5, which may help for some Danny Ric style sends.

    Im crossing my fingers that Max can continue to put the pressure on Merc, and that McLaren continue to punch on at the head of the mid field.

    Roll on Friday night for FP1, which I am certain will be like peak hour traffic out on track

    Pumped for this. It's been a really interesting season so far. Double header too with Spain.

    Hoping Danny Ric has got himself comfortable.

      Poor Bottas, having to use cross ply taxi retreads.

          The biggest surprise for me after fridays practice sessions, was where the Alpines ended up...they havent shown any real pace this year, and then BAM, both cars are less than 4 tenths from the fastest time.

          I wonder if there is something specific to this circuit that suits their car, or if they have made some set up changes that have brought the car into a better window

          Mick Schumacher was not too shabby again, only being 1.7 seconds off the fastest time, and 2.3 ahead of Mazepin in P1 and 1.1 ahead in P2, and more imporatantly, his race pace was better than 4 or 5 other cars. Hopefully this trend continues

                  Anyone know what the latest hotness is in 4K steaming of F1? I recently got rid of Foxtel and have Kayo, but dearly miss 4K. If I can find some 4K Ace streams or equivalent plan is to have Kayo as a backup.

                      Nope just HD, and sometimes shit HD. I imagine they do all sorts of compression to get it to run smooth.

                        Kayo for that sweet 360p experience lol. Kayo is great for its convenience but can't hold a candle to Foxtel's 4K.

                              McLaren were the only team on mediums when everyone else was on softs. The risk worked for Lando. He did talk about trying to adapt to a new driving style beforehand.
