… It comes after a period of decline for McLaren, which has seen the team finish third in 2020, fourth in 2021 and fifth in 2022. After two races in 2023, they have yet to score a point.
No surprised pikachu face.
> The Grands Prix in Azerbaijan, Austria, Belgium, Qatar, the USA and Brazil are the six races Formula 1 has chosen to host 'sprint' events in 2023.
so 6 sprint races confirmed
As for this
> The format of the event will remain the same as the sprint weekends this year.
there was speculation about changing format and points awarded to drivers, but all stand as in 2022
What's your opinion on Sprint Races™? I think the core fans doesn't bother too much, as Grand Prix ™ is the pinacle of the weekend anyway and we would watch **any** Qualy/Sprint format they bring on.
Only five drivers have scored more wins than Daniel Ricciardo in the last decade.
Arguably none of his eight wins were achieved with the fastest car on the day. It's a brutal game sometimes.
Edit title - I didnt really think verstappen braved anything more that the other drivers. In form best car hes ahead by a mile. ALONSO! and Haas woo! I havent watched a canadian GP before but looking forward to the midfield scrap.
Hopefully Norris/Russell can charge up the field as they seem to be good for the overtakes. Vettel Sadface.
From the initial performance Looking like business as usual - Leclerc taking pole but Verstappen blasting past on the straights. Perez must like his chances but who knows how may redflags / escape road exits will be taken in the race...
After last years disappointment I hope he can take the race this year. Blistering pace by the looks.
If there is one race I can skip in the season it’s this one. I don’t know why F1 is still here given the car size / track limitations.
