How did you guys get started into following this?  It seems so impenetrable.

I'm not into it but watching the Netflix show seems like a great gateway. It's good even if you aren't into the sport

I learned about it at a pretty young age, between Ayrton Senna Super Monico GP, and watching movies like Grand Prix with my dad.  So street circuits and road courses are where my racing interest developed.  Then all of the nuances they have for races that dictate strategies.  Formula 1 has really become accessible for most people in the last few years with the ESPN coverage.

The series on Netflix would be a good entry point for someone that wanted to get into some of the extra stuff that goes on.  Grand Prix was good, but its from the 60’s i think, so it may not resonate well with some wanting to jump in.  The movie Rush was really good at telling the story of James Hunt and Niki Lauda, and was pretty entertaining.

If i were to tell someone where to start, i’d say watch one of the time trials on Saturday morning for qualifying.  It starts with 20 drivers, in Q1 they take the top 15 times and they go to Q2, then they send the top 10 times to Q3 and Q3 winner gets pole.  That usually only last an hour.  And the races are short as well.  It’s not out of the norm to get races completed in 90 minutes.  As opposed to the 3 hour marathons of nascar.

Really an incredibly bad year for Ferrari strategy. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mercedes finishes above them for 2nd in the constructors Championship. All they have to do is stay out of the way and let Ferrari self destruct. I was hoping Mercedes would finish 4th or lower behind McLaren and Ferrari this year after dominating for so long.

Yeah, Merc has been the definition of consistency outside of Russell’s ill timed and confusing dnf.  But i don’t see anyway that they finish lower than third (and most likely second).  Even when Ferrari has a good race strategy , the drivers find a way to eff up.
