How is the team Davide Brivio joined doing? Suzuki is missing him mightily, his departure screwed team Suzuki Ecstar. Davide is an interesting person, his interviews on technical specs and differences between the MotoGP machines are fascinating. I hope he does the same thing as he becomes more familiar with Formula 1.

Alpine is a middle midfield team, IMO.
They have Alonso, a 2 time champion & Ocon, an, IMO, solid midfield driver.

Results so far:
Bahrain: 13/Ret
Imola: 9/10
Portimao: 7/8
Spain: 9/17
Monaco: 9/13
Baku: 6/Ret

Currently 7th in the constructor's, out of 10.
Drivers are 11/12 out of 20.

Points in F1 are for the top 10

Any word from Pirelli on the tires? Also heard that Pirelli also recommended a pressure change.

Last I saw, they were claiming debris induced. Said LH had some cuts on his tire too.
I'm skeptical. Bottas a couple years ago, you could see the debris on the track.

They mandate minimum pressures and had bumped it up a pound the second day from 19 to 20. Still looks low compared to the pressures required last time they were concerned about load induced tire failure.
Right now they are trying to say it was punctures.

They also momentarily increased rear pressures during the red flag, then reversed & left it as is.
Watched a brief Schumacher onboard that had a lot of the communication with his engineer & it was mentioned during the red flag wait.
Also, not shown on the TV broadcast, that I saw, but Mazepin made a really, really, late defensive move on Schumacher on the main straight on the last lap. Just a bit more & it could've been another bad crash.

Not a bad French GP.

Feel bad for Bottas, screwed by strategy & he sounded pissed.

Max made it work & drove pretty flawlessly.

If I saw it correctly, I believe McLaren took 3rd in the WCC from Ferrari. Leclerc seemed to struggle a lot today.

Mercedes couldn't make the two stop work for Hamilton once Red Bull pitted first but Bottas had a huge gap behind and nothing to loose so that really didn't make much sense.
The race was pretty good but that track shouldn't be allowed on the calendar. The place looks like a large parking lot with the track painted on. The Austrian track is such a contrast as one of the more scenic on the schedule and a classic road racing track.

Yeah, it's a tough call for which is worse: Paul Ricard or Sochi.

All in all, I enjoyed the French GP. The Ferraris were so slow. Alonso is beginning to show his skill, as is Checko. Max drove an excellent race and never quit hustling that car.....I think he was tired when it was over. All of the cars finished the race, and the Williams driver did himself proud!!

moderately boring race except for the start and the excitement at lap 51-1/2

nice to see Chinstrap lose

wish Ferrari did better but they're hobbled for the entire season

On to Austria. Seems like Ferrari has issues with mid to high speed tire management that accelerates wear - and Binnotto says they won’t fix until next year. Hate to hear that - enjoying the McLaren and Ferrari back and forth and would like to see that throughout the season. Props to McLaren - they keep finding a way. Norris continues to impress but makes a few too many mistakes here and there, and Riciardo looks to be coming alive.

I’m not a hater of Hamilton, but I’m glad they now need to earn their paychecks - and RedBull team is pushing them.

If true, that's a huge change.

Depending on how much downforce it takes off, it should lead to better racing. There might be a pass at Monaco.

I guess we'll see how much they're able to exploit the new ground effect allowance.

Even so, cars should be able to follow closer since ground effects produce less turbulence than wings, winglets, and winglets on wings. It’s worked gangbusters for IndyCar.

Definitely looking forward to seeing how each team interprets the new ruleset. Car debuts & winter testing for '22 should be exciting.
