Monaco might be where its evidenced the most, but the problem is the cars being so huge these days. I think they should make them 30% smaller in the next formula if they really want to see racing and stop half of the tracks being a procession. Lets go back to the 2005 ish sized cars and see some driving!
The cars are as big as they are for safety reasons, see Checo’s crash from yesterday, unfortunately they will probably never get much smaller.

Nothing new other than perhaps the unanimity and level of disenchantment that the drivers and teams are feeling. Monaco is going to be fully resistant to change, so the issue will be if F1 can muster up the sack to call their bluff and threaten to walk away.

When Stroll is judging you... the bar must be very low... so low you can't even see it anymore.

he wears an F1 helmet and knows that bike helmets don't do that much to protect against serious head injuries.
:puzzled: Maybe this belongs in the bike thread, but I'd be interested to know what evidence you have to support this claim. Everything I've read states that bike helmets don't protect against concussions, but do likely protect against serious head injuries.

my observations come from the safest place in the world to ride bikes - the netherlands. most people there ride bikes at least once a week whether to get to work, to visit friends, to do groceries, etc. those same people also never wear helmets which draws the conclusion that helmets are not that useful a tool for cycling safety. infrastructure obviates the need for safety equipment.

Theres only so much bike lanes can do if your head hits asphalt. Or you crash into a car.

I applaud his personal choice to do what he wants.
I always assumed most guys wearing bicycle helmets were hiding hair loss, just like you never see an old dude in a convertible Corvette without a cap on.

Cap is to not get sunburned on your head.

As someone who is old and bald, sunburn on your scalp is miserable. That said, sunscreen. I never wear hats.
