hmmm... ok its only fp1 but nico seems to be no a run at the moment. most make him free if he knows he can also easily afford finishing 2nd if hammy wins. pressures mounting on hammy. he needs the title this year. this would put him right up with alonso. if he fails, he will end like another villeneuve or hill.... decisive times ahead.

Man of the race: Valteri Bottas

Reject of the race: Sebastian Vettel's mechanics. As much as I dislike the guy, he doesn't deserve that many technical issues.

What, that was legit?! I thought that was one of the pranks that occurred in the Reddit stream. See below.  :laugh:

Also Lewis had a fantastic drive yesterday, 9th to 4th in 1 lap is impressive.

I don't think Alonso would go back to McLaren to be honest, not after the issues he had with the team regarding Hamilton.

I'm not sure if I like this or not, part of me thinks its stupid, but part of me thinks it could provide for some interesting racing, always a lot of action from a standing start.

Yes, it will provide more excitement but this is F1, not nascrash. You get to build your lead in F1 and that shouldn't be taken away from you due to a car issue. Standing starts are 90% of how the car's systems transfer the power to the wheels (and how much grip the tires will have during the restarts). This rule would unfairly penalize drivers.

The FIA needs to reform its contact with its fans, not stupid rule changes to bring people back to the sport.

 

The archaic way they treat media pales in comparison to the likes of WRC and BTCC.

      Electronic Arts officially confirms Codemasters acquisition
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Codemasters, the British video games company known for its wide range of racing titles, is now a part of Electronic Arts. The acquisition has been in the works for some time now, and today, EA officially confirmed the move on a blog post that welcomed the racing giant into the fold.

      The acquisition has been an interesting journey to keep an eye on. Take-Two Interactive was originally in talks to purchase Codemasters with a deal that involved almost a billion dollars. However, EA threw a wrench into the takeover talks by making a "knockout bid" worth $1.2 billion, which Codemasters went on to accept in December.

      "This is the beginning of an exciting new era for racing games and content as we bring together the talented teams at Electronic Arts and Codemasters," said Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a statement. "Racing fandom continues to grow worldwide, and the franchises in our combined portfolio will enable us to create innovative new experiences and bring more players into the excitement of cars and motorsport. Our teams will be a global powerhouse in racing entertainment, with amazing games for players on every platform, and we can’t wait to get started."

      EA's racing portfolio already includes popular franchises like Need for Speed and Burnout. Now with Codemasters on its side, that list is increasing to include Dirt, GRID, Formula 1, and Project CARS, among other series that expand the publisher's scope beyond just arcade racers while also enabling it to have multiple racing game launches a year.

      AWS and Formula 1 announce six new racing performance stats
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Formula 1 With less than two weeks to go for the resumption of the 2020 season, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Formula 1 have announced six new performance statistics that will help fans analyze the flood of real-time data during races. This will help them gauge the performance of the cars on track and predict race outcomes. These statistics will use a variety of AWS offerings, including Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon SageMaker.

      To start off, on July 3-5, at the RedBull Ring in Austria, the debutant 'Car Performance Scores' will display an individual car’s performance using four metrics: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line, and Car Handling⁠. These are vital indicators of a car's race performance and will allow fans to compare different F1 cars on the track.

      The Car Performance Score stats are in addition to the five other metrics that will debut this season. Complete details on those are as follows:

      Vis-à-vis the initiative, Rob Smedley, the Chief Engineer of Formula 1, stated that “We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.” While Mike Clayville, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS remarked that “This year, we’re thrilled to extend the power of F1 data in the cloud and unlock new insights that help fans understand more of F1’s rich complexity.”

      Chinese Grand Prix 2017 is next in the F1 calendar. With Vettel winning the first race of the season, we are expecting a good competition between Ferrari and Mercedes. Will Vettel take the lead or Hamilton pull off something unexpected?

      Here's the schedule.
