    Not a fan of street circuits or in fact F1 much anymore but Baku looked like an interesting old city to visit?

    It was phenomenal, but the one advantage McLaren had over the Williams (and the rest) was their TC system. Undoubtedly played a role that day.

    This and crank up the volume (after 38 sec). Play it loud, very loud.

    Do bear in mind that todays world of safety regulations just about castrates rider´s balls on track.

    In Verstappen´s case they even reformulated some rules specífically to keep him in check.

    It's the first of 9 European GPs this weekend as the F1 circus makes its way to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the scene of Ferrari's dominance during the test sessions in February. The Italians have an engine upgrade due in Spain and this may well assist them in halting the German juggernaut, however Mercedes have dominated the circuit for the last few years with 6 consecutive poles, 5 from 6 front row lock-outs and 4 from the last 5 race winners. Add all this to the fact that 25 of the 28 races held at this circuit have been won from the front row then Ferrari really do appear to have a challenge on their hands - if their engine upgrade can get them on the front row then they may have a chance, if it doesn't...

    Carlos Sainz Jnr will be looking to continue McLaren's form on home ground, Racing Point's Sergio Perez was 4th a couple of years ago, Haas tested well in Spain and George Russell's chassis has been repaired, and will be compensated for by the Baku F1 organisers, in time for tomorrow. Renault are having a shuffle of their technical staff with new appointments in both engine and chassis development, Red Bull's paddock Energy Station is to be replaced by their new "Holzhaus" and 2019 is to be the last year for Brasil's Interlagos, which I personally think is a real shame. For me the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, to give the circuit's full and proper name, is the spiritual end-of-season race even if it hasn't been the literal one for a few years, unfortunately money talks though and that was the motive to move to a new Tilke designed track in Rio.

    I actually feel quite sad that Interlagos will be no more.

    Well... strictly speaking it's probably the same one, just another time.

    So has Hamilton slipped or has Bottas picked up his game?

    Great drive by Botas. Lewis looked a bit subdued, but another lock out by Mercedes.

    Ferrari fail once again.

    I watched the GP2 this morning, there was three laps of racing then they enabled DRS, after that it was push to pass, I hope the F1race isn’t like that.

    I think at Barcelona DRS just ruins everything

    Swap Lewis and Bottas, but for the rest the same, with Red Bull Honda moving up in the pecking order.

    Even throwing in the safety car couldn’t stop it looking like a precession, it really wasn’t an exciting race.

    What happened with Norris and Stroll? Racing incident?

    Yep:

    ...The Stewards believe that the driver of car 4 could have backed out of the attempted
    overtake into turn 2 and also that the driver of car 18 might have been more aware of
    the possibility that car 4 could be on his inside.

    Accordingly, we believe that neither driver was “wholly or predominantly to blame” and
    therefore in accordance with Article 38.2 a) of the Formula One Sporting Regulations,
    “no penalty will be imposed”....

    Ssssssjt. Don´t be a spoilsport. We all know that ´not exciting´ is not disguising the prohibited ´b´-word...

    What are doing near the tele anyway?? Go enjoy the sun!! The sunset now.

    No need to swap the top two, the better driver won.

    There was a huge amount of rubber laid down on the grid. Most of it over the 2nd place position.

    I wonder whether this helped Lewis's launch.

    Not very exciting apart from lap 1 - but we cannot blame Mercedes for that. The other teams/drivers really do need to step up.

    Its sobering to think the last time Ferrari won the WCC was in 2008 - that's 10 years ago.

    As demonstrated today. And no need for team orders to ensure their defending world champion got max points.

    Your lunchtime and/or bedtime analysis from Mark Hughes is now available here.

    His eloquent and lucid description of the latest Mercedes aero upgrade utilising vortex generation put me in mind of a story I once heard about the quantum theorist Werner Heisenberg. On his deathbed Heisenberg reputedly declared that he would have two questions for God: why relativity and why turbulence. Heisenberg continued saying, "I really think he may have an answer to the first question."
