I do not know if any one else noticed (watched the highlights again) that both the McLaren and Ferrari following Verstappen exceeded the track limits consistently on one or maybe more corners.

 

I expect that RB will be bringing any observation to the officials notice. We did not want a repeat of a past event where the stewards composition was queried, then being seen as to Anglo Saxon in composition. 

 

Are RBs easy wins behind them, if so it did not last as long as the Mercedes dominance. 

 

Verstappen needs a better team mate, than his present one, to keep the pursuing hoards at bay, as the unwritten team interest prevailed at Mercedes.

Evening all!

 

Monaco this weekend,  and some interesting leaderboards coming out of P1 and P2.  But first, the customary reminder!

 

Don't forget your predictions!

 

P1 saw the best times set by Mercedes and McLaren.  Hamilton set fastest time ahead of Piastri, with Russell and Norris next.  Verstappen and Perez set 11th and 12th fastest times - though that was on 'medium' compund tyres, rather than softs.

 

P2 saw Leclerc setting fastest time from Hamilton with Alonso third and Verstappen 4th - though still over half a second adrift of Leclerc's time.

 

So, once again, as I wondered last weekend - will Red Bull get their act together for P3 and/or qualifying and/or the race?  P3 is tomorrow at 11:30 UK-time.  Might be a good idea to set some predictions now and be ready to update them (or not!) after P3.  Qualifying follows at 15:00,  with Sunday's race at 14:00.

 

Bonne chance à tous!

Evening all!

 

With channel 4's programme safely finished,  it's time to look at our results from today's race;

14 15 0 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 66
15 14 1 The JP Specials johnpflyrc 54
16 5 4 Mannschaft Carl Brotherton 37

 

Quite a spread of scores today!  But top spot today is taken by Charles with an impressive 202 points.  Well done, Charles!

 

Second today on 166 points is Tony, with Pete just 2 points further back taking 3rd place.

 

Well done again to Charles and to the rest of our 'podum places' today.

 

Several of us failed to even reach double-figures with our scores today - myself included...

 

Looking now at the overall table;

Team Manager Pts
1 1 1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 1363
2 2 3 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 1329
3 3 1 Revers Racing Pete B 1302

5 5 4 Mannschaft Carl Brotherton 1248
6 6 0 PSS Power Flyer 1237
7 7 4 Hidden Cucumber fat brownie 1181
8 8 0 Iqonic racing iqon 1179
9 9 1 Pitts Specials john stones 1174
10 10 1 teewrex John Tee 1154
11 11 4 LetsGoTotoLetsGo GrumpyGnome 1133
12 12 0 Torque of the devil Stu 1102
13 13 1 GASTON Formula Chris McG 1061
14 14 1 The JP Specials johnpflyrc 1027
15 15 0 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 967
16 16 0 Hans Brake Zoonie 944

 

So Tony is back up to top place.  Carl had briefly taken top place after Imola, but unfortunately his last place score of 55 points today means he falls 4 places to 5th. Charles' win today means he jumps 3 places to 2nd, with Pete moving up a place to 3rd.  

 

Amongst other changes, fat brownie is also heading upwards,  4 places up to 7th, and GrumpyGnome moves down 4 places to 11th.  

 

Canada is next, at Montreal, in 2 weeks time - and that means evening qualifying and race times for us in the UK.

Monaco is less a race, more about qualification.

 

Felt for Chico, the suggestion that there is and was a reluctance to implement a penalty as the potential offender would almost certainly be suspended, again calls into question the authorities and vested interests, than consistent impartial decisions.

 

As for being bottom.😢

Evening all,

 

Back to North America this weekend.  Its Canada this time, and specifically Montréal.  And of course this means everything is a few hours later than normal for us.

 

P1 was delayed by a rain storm, and started 21 minutes late.  As the track dried out it was only in the last 5 minutes that any vaguely-representative times could be set,  and Norris was fastest ahead of Sainz and Leclerc.  Hamilton set 4th fastest, though over 1.5 seconds down on Norris with Verstappen 2 seconds adrift of Norris in 5th.  

 

So not really a useful indication of anything - except for how badly weather-affected the session was!  P2 starts in around 90 minutes from now - at 22:00 UK time.  P3 is at 17:30 tomorrow with qualifying at 21:00.  So, the customary reminder...

 

Don't forget your predictions!

 

Get them done before 21:00 on Saturday.  Sunday's race is at 19:00.

Morning all!

 

By now the Channel 4 highlights programme should be well underway, so anybody who is watching that and doesn't want any clues about the results - please look away now, and get back to watching the race!

 

So first, our results from Canada;

And some close scores at the top!

Today's winner is Ade with 143 points.

Iqon is just one point behind with 142 points and takes second.

Kev is only two points further back on 140 and takes third.

 

Well done to today's top 3 - and the close scoring continues,  with just 6 points separating the top 5.

 

Looking now at the overall table after Canada;

Tony holds on to top place.  But there are a few place swaps,  most significantly Pete moves up to take 2nd from Charles who slips to third,  and Ade and Simon exchange places, Ade taking 4th, Simon 6th.

 

Next up is Spain in two weeks time.

Evening all!

 

Back to Europe this weekend,  and it's the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.  So first, the customary reminder;

 

Don't forget your predictions!

 

We've had P1 and P2 already today.  In P1 Norris set fastest time from Verstappen, but only by 0.024 seconds, with Sainz a third of a second slower in third.  Russell was very slightly slower, ahead of Perez, Piastri and Hamilton. 

 

P2 was even closer, with Hamilton fastest, 0.022 s ahead of Sainz and 0.055 s ahead of Norris. Gasly, Verstappen and Leclerc were next,  the top 6 being separated by only a third of a second.

 

P3 is at 11:30 UK-time tomorrow,  with qualifying at 15:00 - so get your predictions done (or updated!) before then.

Sunday's race is at 14:00.

 

Good luck everyone!

Our clear winner today is John S with 167 points.

Second today, almost 20 points behind, is Pete B with 148 points.

And joint third. just a couple of points back, Tony and GrumpyGnome both scored 146 points.

 

Well done to today's top 3 (4!)

No changes in the top 5,  or in the bottom 7.  All today's changes are mid-table.

Iqon moves up 1 to 6th with John S moving up 2 to 7th.  Heading in the other direction, Simon moves down 2 to 8th, fat brownie is down 1 to 9th.

 

Next up in a week's time is Austria and it's a Sprint weekend.  That means our predictions must be in my the start of Sprint qualifying on FRIDAY.

I'll be travelling to Vancouver on Friday and will be away until after the British GP - so my updates for Austria dn the British GP might be at rather odd hours of the day - UK-time!
