It was extremely tacky. They're trying desperately to Americanise the sport, pandering to spectacle over substance, when the sport was doing just great without it. I really hope this doesn't become a permanent addition.

I think I'd be ok with it if they kept it just for the US GP; pretty much the only place they could get away with this, as it's their schtick. At least it provided a few funny moments, like Kvyat formally being nicknamed "The Torpedo".

No contest for Driver of the Day this time; Hamilton deserved it 100%. And well done to Verstappen too on breaking Montoya's race lap record from 2004.

F1 didn't tweet the usual timing screens for the practice sessions this time, and I can't be arsed to screenshot them, so straight to qualifying!

 

They're also revealing a new logo tomorrow: https://auto.ndtv.com/news/f1-2017-all-new-formula-1-logo-to-be-revealed-at-abu-dhabi-gp-1779943

 

So qualifying was the last time we see this one...

Hard to believe it's 23 years old.

It'll take a bit of getting used to I think

It reminds me of the Wipeout games, so I quite like it. Obviously not as good as the previous logo - it could really do with some colour in it - but at least they didn't go with one of the other two...

It's very PlayStation-like, especially the font. Too much red for my liking, though; I reckon a black F (or double-r, more like) with just the red 1 would work better. I knocked up a quick-and-dirty version of it just now from the Twitter pic...

And now we wait four months for the new season. In the meantime, there are other series to help fill in the gaps...
