    Hello.:)

    It´s not 100% definite now but they mean the drivers points not the constructors.If it´s not this year then next year definitly.Has something to do with the quote to get an decision between Liberty Media (thats their idea) and the F1 Commission.

    Ok the drivers' championship, or WDC. I've never heard of it referred to as "WM".
    I think a point for fastest lap would be nice. It would lead to a little mini-race at the end with all the unplaced drivers pitting for fresh rubber and putting a charge on. :D

    Thats the idea,the last Laps all major teams are running on "safe mode" in the past.Now this is a little incentive for all.:toot:

    Hello.:)

    There is it,the extra point for the fastest lap.:grog::toot:
    The only condition: the driver MUST finish in the top 10 classement.
    And it added also a point to the constructors championship.

    Let us look at the disillusioning but to be expected matters of facts:

    - Mercedes TOP as expected.Both drivers has "provided" (Bottas had a little "rod in the Window" rumors that he maybe replaced on the continously season against Ocon if his performance is not as expected.:unsure:)

    - Ferrari - a little to great "distance" to mercedes.At least Vettel showed who is the Number 1 (at the moment).

    - Red Bull - disappionting/disappointing/disappointing - 2nd Driver Gasly/performance of the car/distance to mercedes (Dr.Marko was a little too "optimistic"). Postive how Verstappen is pushing the car,again.

    - Haas F1 - like last year,very very strong BEFORE the first race,both drivers seems to be in very good shape....(remember what happend then last year ?)

    - McLaren/Lando Norris - great,great job,what a difference to Alonso days.....let us hope for more to come.The car/engine seems powerful AND reliable.The Mood in the team seems very positive.He´s teammate Sainz very disappointing at the moment.

    - Alfa Romeo/Raikkönen - good,solid job,a little behind what we have hoped after free sessions.His teammate seems a little behind him after Q1,but he has much to lear nfor his first complete season.

    All other Teams specially RENAULT are far from that what we hoped/expected after Tests/Free Sessions.

    BUT:

    To lay the PARTY Mode from mercedes aside:
    The Gaps between the Teams are not so great as to assume the worst.

    Let the RACE begin.:toot::grog:

    All decent observations, but Albert Park isn't always representative of the rest of the season. It's a bit of a unique track, plus teams aren't always 100% up to speed with their cars in the "first week back at school"

    Shocking from Williams, though. Just shocking :(

    The fastest lap rule seems to be working quite well.

    Hello.:)

    If Mick had the genes of his father then this will be the least problem for the driving in Formula 1.
    If he had the right people around then also for his "growing".( and i don´t mean his actual managerin...)

    The story about his father after his accident was very unclear for the fans.This maybe could be more burdening for him.The reporters/interviewers today are really like uninformed maggots,thats why the plead "experts" for getting information.But I´m sure,Miss Kehm has to prevent this.
