So the first race

What a farce, the cars are ugly the halo is a pointless monstrosity

Back to allowing Ferrari to cheat for the win, how an earth can it be possible to be faster through the pits with a tyre change under a safety car, virtual or not!!!

Don’t think I will watch anymore races this year, Vettel will be world champ and not by his driving ability or the cars performance,

Pointless two hours of my life I’m not going get back

It's turned into a pantomime, results are manipulated to generate TV audience/advertising revenue. Maybe Liberty will divide up the money more fairly and bring Todt into line...but I doubt it.

Just seen a 2018 car, what on earth is the boomerang thing all about!! :shock:
Stopped watching it years ago, rather spend the time out in my car or in the garage.

That pit stop - race neutralised, car way in front has a lead, stops and returns within that lead - no surprise just really lucky timing of virtual safety car for the car that happened to be in front. Haas would call it something far different.

Boomerangs/halo - ugly, waste of both aerodynamic opportunity (most teams) and seemingly advertising (at least put drivers name on them as we cant see the helmet anymore)

Pace is the fastest hence outright lap records - fast is good

Three teams competing (probably four by the end of the season) - best in years

Smoking Ferrari - burning oil as fuel, surely not as that's illegal and no-one cheats or bends rules in motorsport!

Things are looking good for now
