Even in past seasons Perez failed Q1 quite a few times, a lot considering he had the best car by miles. And on those occasions sometimes he would get stucked in the middle of the pack.

In this race we saw that RB was very off balanced, with Max into the gravel twice, changes got better for him (him driving style) since RB put Sebastián Buemi working on the sim during friday night to fix those issues, but they had lit run time with the hard tyres and the car was harder to drive, once Max get the black and white warning message and so he reduced the pace to avoid getting 5s penalty for exceeding track limits.

Mercedes had absolutely no pace at all, very slow. Ferrari were looking good until Q3. In race they weren't game for Max and then again don't know what they tried to get with pit stops since we knew undercut was powerful. There was a time that Leclerc looked liked he could get close to Norris but was just a couple laps and then Norris got away and he chase after Max.

The Denver Nuggets are leading 53:38 against the Minnesota Timberwolves at half time in Denver. This is the last game of the series, the 7th. If they win they'll play the Dallas Mavericks, so Jokic against Doncic! Dallas won yesterday the 7th game against the Oklahoma Thunder by a single point after been down by 17 at one point. Oklahoma lead by a point when the Dallas' player was fouled 2.1 seconds before the end. Today the Indiana Pacers swept away the New York Knicks 130:109 in New York and meet the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference final. Truly fantastic basketball!

Yes, at least Doncic is still in, I like him (and Dallas) way more.

Perez's car got turned into a trike by the looks of it. Don't think I've seen an F1 car looking like that before. So much debris everywhere.

Romain Grosjean Bahrain?

That car is gone. But survival cell made its work. That was totally unnecessary move by Kevin Magnussen. He has 10 points. Usually situations on first lap aren't penalized but he should, and with that we would top 12 points on superlicense and get a ban for a race.

Sainz got flat tire after contact with Piastri but with Red flag will have second chance.

How about this contact between the 2 Alpines with Ocon highside motogp style?

If indeed the top 4 are going to the end without stopping this gp is basically dead unless some mechanical problems/SC happen.

The McLaren might stop Norris later if the gap with Russell is enough.

Charles Leclerc finally wins at home, with his step brother just behind him. :D

The accident just killed the race since they didn't want to stop again and kept running in a low pace. Still they gave a lap to almost everybody and 2 laps to a lot of drivers!

Only point of interest was possible free stop for Norris but as we saw with Verstappen, a slower car in Monaco can held a faster one. Now into Indianapolis.

According to the bookies, Real Madrid is the favourite.
After 1st quarter and a few seconds, Madrid has 12 points advantage.
