Interesting to see how FP1 played out with the improved regulations to stop teams using cheaty bendy wings and low tyre pressures...coughredbullastonmartinferraricough.

Talking of bendy wings wonder how the Merc front wings are stacking up.Setting a quick time is all very well so when will the tests start on BOTH wings.

so no gravel traps.
the blue is abrasive to slow the cars down.
the red more so.

the blue looks like Yas Marina Blue.

does that mean that I can now call my car colour Paul Ricard 2021 Blue?

things are looking much better for Mercs comparing with the last 2 races.. Bottas looks like he nailed the setup and happy with the car while Lewis is still not happy with the car completely.. for now pole looks like can go to 3 drivers but for the race Mercs look stronger..

You were not joking about the wind there my friend, it already blew Seb and Mick S into the barrier earlier.
Also BOT ran over a high kerb totalling a front wing with tens of thousands of euros damage underneath (hammy's tub) car.

45%vol alc makes it a potent aperitif and one to sip slowly I think my friend. I see it's part of the Pernod group which I know of well... I might check this one out myself.

It's the legendary Mistral wind!
The 1,8 km long straight at Paul Ricard/Le Castellet is in fact called the Mistral straight. Unfortunately they added a left-right chicane halfway through.

By doing this, they took the soul out of a very special track. The blue and red paint made it even worse.

This is how it used to be:

The chicane may be a blessing to cut down on top speed with the risk of tyre blow out seemingly present more now.
