    Maybe it’s slightly different where you live, but where I live in Canada, every second car is AWD. I’m not really fussed by the idea that F1 has to have road relevance, but some people are, and for them, AWD is a lot more road relevant than big-ass wangs and tons of downforce.

    I agree that the 2021 regs are a step in the right direction, and the cars looks pretty good. If the LCD board is anything like what they have in Indycar and IMSA, it’s marginally useful for fans and you’ll barely notice it at all. If you can get used to the HALO, the info board won’t be an issue.

    I don't hate it. Would love to see better pictures, though.

    I seen a rumor that the Mercedes team is for sale and Penske is in talks about buying it for 2021. Mercedes will still supply engines. They even offered to supply RBR, apparently.

    Video talks about Red Bull pulling out of F1 if it can't get its way on new engine regulations beyond '22. They want a simple engine that everyone can build, and with a standard (spec?) KERS. Sounds reasonable to me.

    I suppose F1 has to try and find a balance between keeping a formula that manufacturers see value in their technology still being seen as cutting edge but also relevant to what they are doing with their road cars, but also a formula where as smaller engineering outfits - the Judds, Harts, Mecachromes, Nicholsons, Ricardos, Cosworths, etc, etc, can also have a shot of being part of the circus and give the current F1 teams better choice and therefore better value.
