The North American events are almost certainly a no go.
Apparently they must run eight events to declare a championship, they have those.

Let's hope they do better this weekend, both Honda and Red Bull supposedly have fixes for the mishaps last week. Fingers crossed!

Nice to see Honda back where they belong in F1,  and all respect to Red Bull / Torro Rosso for their faith in Honda,  and working with them,  unlike Maclaren who seemed to treat Honda like a junior partner and expected them to shoehorn a power unit ( can we still call them engines ? ) into a space in the chassis that was too small, which resulted in all sorts of problems.

I don't think we can be too hard on McLaren. They were working with the chassis they could afford. There are the have's and have nots in f1 just as everywhere else.
Brilliant docuseries on Netflix on f1 that is well worth a watch.

It's the demise of Ferrari that is something we are not accustomed to, they are sadly way behind this season especially Vettel. This weekend Vettel never made Q2 and Leclerc didn't make Q3, 17th and 13th respectively. The power unit performance may be a major cause after they were warned off last season for having an illegal fuel pressure system. I don't think that Vettel's heart is in it anymore after not being offered a contract by Ferrari for the 2021 seaon.

Watched the highlights from Mugello, my first f1 experience for a long time, and that was some race. I have raced Mugello a hundred times on the Xbox (Forza 4) and wanted to see what it was like for real cars. Like the game, turn 1 is really the only overtaking spot, however, in the game, a bit of pushing and shoving gets you past in a couple of other places as well.
