It is an absolute tragedy. The sport has taken enormous strides in safety in the last 50 years but as it says in big letters on the tickets when you go to watch: motor racing is dangerous. It will never be completely safe as long as drivers are in the cars because of the speeds and energies involved. That is why drivers are worth every penny they are paid, they are putting themselves at risk for the sport they love and to entertain those who watch.

Every driver loves to race. Let's hope we get something special tomorrow in memory of Hubert. He wouldn't want anything else

As for qualifying, Leclerc seems to have a significant advantage over one lap. But the race is a different matter. And since Albon has been tuning his car for race pace he ought to be good to watch coming through the field. The midfield are all close on times too, there should be some good battles

Another convincing one two for Mercedes at the Russian Grand Prix, but it seems Ferrari just gave the win away by
allowing Vettel to ignore team orders when Leclerc was clearly the fastest Ferrari driver on the day.
The Ferrari management may have to be firm with both drivers I think.

On a slightly different note, can I give a shout out to Johnathon Rea MBE from Northern Ireland, who today won the World Superbike
Motorcycle championship for the 5th year in a row - the first person ever to achieve that feat ! :cheer:

I'm not really into F1 as I think it's "false" racing with DRS zones etc, but love all bike racing and delighted Rea won his 5th Championship on the bounce. This is even more remarkable when you consider that Alvaro Bautista won the 1st 8 races on the bounce and everyone had written Rea off as yesterday's man.

Brillaitn and thoroughy deserved.

Too true F6C - I tend to only watch the F1 highlights these days as it as you say false, but I too love my bike racing and tend to follow both
Superbikes and MotoGP.
As you say Bautista did win the first 8 races but Rea finished second in everyone, and he and his team never gave up and kept plugging away,
and in the end thoroughly deserved to win the championship !

Another case of Ferrari throwing a win away. They are over thinking team orders and making a very public mess of it. Another great drive by Albon brightening up an otherwise dull race
