Just read that the car is from his fairytale home Monza win, so that’s pretty cool

Mazepin FP1, does not disappoint.

Someone has to take over for Grosjean.

Deciding if Vettel is the horse for a rainy weekend for my fantasy team vs. Lando

I’ve sort of wondered how Fantasy F1 is like to play. Is there any diversity of strategy considering that there are only 20 drivers and i can’t think of any other strategy than “pick HAM”?

I kept seeing the F1 Play app advertised at the races on TV so I finally downloaded it last season. You answer 10 questions. For instance, pick P1-3 (clearly some combination of HAM BOT VER most likely), winning margin in seconds between P1 and P2 and highest finisher among a random selection of drivers. It's far from skill based but it only takes a few seconds.

I actually did fairly well for Bahrain this year. I’m usually in the 3-4/10 group so 6/10 isn't bad.

I see, so something akin to super bowl betting where you pick winners and a bunch of prop bets

There’s another game where you pick a team of drivers (with a salary cap) and get points for their accomplishments.

That one seems to be even more non-diverse, although maybe there’s fun in finding arbitrage in the mid-pack. But maybe even that may have been rendered pointless during Lewis’s past-season rampages.

In the early days of Fantasy NBA, they used to make Michael Jordan undraftable because there was no way to have parity with him present. Maybe that would have been the way to go with Lewis? Maybe the point is moot now that Mercedes no longer seems so far in front of everyone else...

Stroll is thanking the gods for Mazepin’s presence in F1. Nearly all of the anti-rich kid ire is now directed his way.

No kidding. Although to be fair to Lance, he shut a lot of people up when he started podiuming.

Not fair to judge Mazepin on one race, but he seems like such a waste of air that so many of us are rooting for him to fail

Damn it. For a moment, it looked like Lando had made the first row before the penalty was handed down. He was fast as #### though, and tomorrow is going to be interesting.

Kimi is the MAN. Sound asleep with helmet in car. Scroll to the end to see him wake up, rub eyes, get back to the important work of being the MAN.

His resting heart rate, is 5...
