Last year was my first year, and I did pretty well. For a point in time I was third in the standings. Just read up on who is doing well and who isn't on Thursday, and Friday morning. Also, never pick Haas to finish in the top ten.

That's a pretty solid strategy. Stick with that.

I’m in for the contest.

2020 F2 cars have rims that the 2021 F1 cars will have.

I wonder if the larger rims will make the ride a lot more harsh, without the tires absorbing bumps as well. Maybe they need to re-do the suspension a bit to be more compliant. Or the drivers just suffer more.

Have 8 - $10 entries so far (me, Arsenal, IronMaiden, Jepworth, DFO, btimbit, JohnnyMakarov, Cecil)! Keep it coming if you want to enter for prizes! Looks like 17 total entries as well.

Prepare for protests in Melbourne!! RBR still thinks the Mercedes DAS is illegal (I agree with Helmut), Renault thinks the Racing Point is a little too similar to the Mercedes, and RBR doesn't like some rear brake ducting on the Merc.

Sent this afternoon. I was terrible last season. Stupid me having faith in Ferrari.

Btw I got myself a sweet Toro Rosso jacket on the cheap from F1 Boutique (Now fanabox). Clearance. Rare to buy F1 gear in CDN $ and on sale. Double win. I’ve met the owner a few times and it’s a family business. He even called me to talk about Alpha Tauri gear. So shoutout to them for being awesome. Purchased from them numerous times. One of the few places to have Alfa Romeo gear back in June, didn’t even have it at the track. They look pricey but after USD or € conversions, plus shipping, plus customs, plus F1 gear is always expensive, it’s actually decent.

How am I supposed to distract myself from my own impending doom with all of these sports getting cancelled??

*Note: I fully support the cancellations and am not actually upset.

Ya, my disappointment is 100% selfish. I get it, but I don't like it!

Ugh...well...not sure what folks want to do. Hopefully $10 isnt material to anyone. I can send it back to everyone if the season does get cancelled.
