In the last few Grands prix:
British grand prix: won by a British driver
Belgian grand prix: won by a man born in Belgium.
Dutch grand prix: won by a Dutch driver.
Italian grand prix: won by a man with Italian heritage

The Russian grand prix is next.

It is normally a decent track for Bottas is it not?

His dad would have to have a couple of snipers in the stands for Mazepin to make the podium!

he will be last or spin out at some point! haha

amazing still to this day that an average/poor driver can put up a load of cash and get a seat in F1

even worse down the "pyramid". if you have enough cash you could go and race touring cars at the weekend

Struggle to believe that a driver who has had so much money thrown at him, even to the extent that his Dad was paying for private tests in the Merc, can still be such a poor driver

I worry about him being in F1. I think he is going to cause one almighty accident. He hasn't got the talent needed.

Nothing wrong with the touring car model. BTCC is much mriw enjoyable to watch up and down the full grid than F1 is.

In truth, unless the leading drivers are just playing bumper cars every week, F1 is by far the dullest form of track motorsport. Assuming you don't count drifting, which you shouldn't

The cars are too extreme and drivers too closely matched for any real action. There was an IndyCar race in St Pete one year with 366 on track passes. Compare that to, say this years Monaco where I believe there was one. AND that was due to pit strategy AND we missed it.

For me the magic of F1 comes from the politics, the midfield battles and the way drivers get treat. Which is why Mazepin, as a "pay" driver, is intriguing and infuriating in equal measure.

In the same way that Ricciardo is justifying the Italian bit, I hear that Hamilton's granny was an avid collector of those dolls inside other dolls :ROFLMAO:
