    The cutting away after is still a joke. It's like when they say they cover qualifying they literally mean just the time when cars are qualifying. After that it's over as far as they're concerned. Really disrespectful

    It's probably that, but honestly you're not missing much.

    I actually enjoy the interviews and listening to the drivers talk about what they did. I get more enjoyment out of the "how" in life than anything else.

    F3 this morning proved that overtakes into turn 1 are more than possible so hopefully the same happens tomorrow.

    The F2 feature race is also proving that too. So far, it's seems like 95% of all overtakes have been down the straight to turn 1. That being said, I'm positive the F1 race will just be about tire wear.

    And maybe mechanical failures. The constant high g's combined with Sundays forecast (86F, hottest day thus far), and I think we'll see at least a couple mechanicals (probably from Haas/Alfa/Ferrari)

    If the F2 and F3 races are anything to go by, Safety Car restarts here are absolutely manic into T1 and through the first section of corners. If we gat a full SC that restart could be mental.

    It's really fun to watch them trail brake into these long sweeping curves. :D Mugello is so different from what they usually race on.

    If the racing is going to be crap in F1, I'd rather see crap races on beautiful and flowing tracks like this, than crap races on boring parking lots. In my nutcase opinion. :lol:

    3,000 spectators have been allowed on site today, that's nice.

    Assuming the Mercs run away with this (likely), I'm looking forward to seeing if Gasly can slice his way up into the top 6 from P16. Also hoping Albon can turn P4 into a P3.

    Verstappen's having engine troubles already on the reconnaissance laps. Just need Bottas to fluff the start again and it's plain sailing for Hamilton.

    What is wrong with Verstappen's race starts? He should never have been that far back.

    Verstappen is fuming and rightly so.

    The burgundy looks great in the sunlight but it's too dark everywhere else.
