I like his channel. Some good insight & analysis.

His 2020 schedule, or 2020-2021 Superseason are both decent ideas.

I just rewatched the 1994 San Marino Gran Prix. Tough weekend all around. I can’t figure out why they didn’t have a tire barrier at Tamborello.

The organisers of the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix – scheduled for June 12-14 – have announced the postponement of the race amid the ongoing global coronavirus outbreak.

The news follows the announcement that F1 are working with promoters on a revised 2020 calendar with the actual sequence and schedule dates for races likely to differ significantly from the original 2020 calendar.

In a statement, the Canadian promoters said they “would have been honoured to host the first race on the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship calendar” and that they were “saddened” to have to postpone the race.

Very cool. Is there an app on Firestick that can be used to stream this or can I at least push it from iPad similar to Youtube?

If I have to watch on iPad only that will suck.

I'm not sure. I'm going to see if there's an app for my Samsung tv. Worst case, I'll stream on my computer while working from home.

Edit: no go on a Samsung TV app

I e been rewatching old races and highlights. There have been some nightmare races from an organizational standpoint. One of the worst, Zolder 1981.

Zolder circle jerk.

Different times but that was a corner with serious damage potential. Normally it was a flat, no lift corner as long as something didn't go wrong. Gerhard Berger had a big hit there a few years before but was ok.
Hard to say if it would have made any difference for Senna. His car's tub was pretty intact but the corner came off and the jagged broken suspension parts hit his helmet and punctured it causing his most serious injuries. That level of damage could have happened with a tire wall too. After that they required the wheel tethers so a suspension corner couldn't reach the driver or fly off into a crowd.
Watching the races from 20 plus years ago and seeing the safety level compared to today makes you wonder why there weren't more like it. At the time the cars were considered to be so safe (at least compared to a decade or two earlier) that there were no fatal accidents until that weekend, and there were two.
A big wake up call.

No pit lane speed limits, minimal pit crew PPE. Crazy times.

Re: Senna. I've read that 6in higher/lower & he would've walked away from the car. No bruising or broken bones; it was the suspension puncture & impact to the helmet that was fatal.

1955 Mille Miglia


This race was won by Mercedes-Benz factory driver Stirling Moss with the aid of his navigator Denis Jenkinson. They completed the 992-mile distance in 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds- an average speed of 99 mph (160 km/h). The two Englishmen finished 32 minutes in front of their second-placed teammate, Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio.

This race was on pubic roads not a race circuit.

Sad to see Sir Stirling Moss gone.

The Best F1 race I saw was 2000 Hockenheim. The run through the forest was fantastic.

I just rewatched a shortened version of it.

F1 CEO Chase Carey provides an update to fans on the latest developments on the 2020 F1 calendar, including a target start date and location…

Although this morning it was announced that the French Grand Prix, due to take place in late June, will not be going ahead, we are now increasingly confident with the progress of our plans to begin our season this summer.

We’re targeting a start to racing in Europe through July, August and beginning of September, with the first race taking place in Austria on 3-5 July weekend. September, October and November, would see us race in Eurasia, Asia and the Americas, finishing the season in the Gulf in December with Bahrain before the traditional finale in Abu Dhabi, having completed between 15-18 races.

Most likely to be a European based series this year with a few other races. They will want to keep their costs as low as possible and meet as many contracts as possible.
Also depends on how things go (health wise) once people dip their toes on the water.

From what I saw on an F1 podcast (WTF1) the minimum requirement is 8 races & 3 continents for a championship.

They cited the regulation, but I'd have to go back & rewatch to find it.
