I am sure we have many F1 fans on this forum. This is the place to discuss everything happening at the pinnacle of motorsport. Did you guys enjoy the finish at Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix where Lando pushed Max all the way?

I used to enjoy F1, until the BBC lost the rights and Sky want a fortune to watch it. From what I’ve seen it looked a good race, however overtaking there (and at Monaco) is ‘challenging’ in the politest form of the word :wink:

Even though I could watch F1 I rarely do anymore, highlights is about it these days. To much greed by Liberty and Sky
GM Andretti want to join and Liberty wont let them (??) they have built a huge factory at Silverstone and are already developing power trains so why not allow new blood (££££ $$$$)
For me BTCC is a far better championship

I lost interest in F1 many years ago. These days my preference is for classic motorsport - CSCC race meetings, for example, or classic rallying.

Andretti will eventually be there, maybe not next year but they are likely to be a part of F1 in 2026 or 2027.

Sergio Perez will stay at Red Bull Racing until 2026 as he signs two-year contract extension with them.

Thought they would only give him a one year deal, but I suppose it depends on what Max does.
Think Red Bull might struggle in Canada this weekend.

This time it’s all good. I’m usually up to speed with my bot smasher :violent1: :violent1:

Though to be fair, you folks are good at picking up the ones I miss (normally coz I’m at work).
