F1 Week One in the Books (1 minute read)

Mario, Princess Peach go on a new adventure in the animated film, Super Mario Brothers

Well, it’s the first week of F1 in the books, and I don’t think there was a single surprise. Max Verstappen and Red Bull looked as dominant as ever. We probably won’t get a real match-up with them for the rest of the year. After FP2 and hearing the Mercedes was hooked up on the track, I thought we’d be able to at least have someone trailing Red Bull at a somewhat competitive trailing pace…. WELL, THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN, lol.

It seems like Adrian Newey is just in his bag, and we’ll have a similar year to last year. I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing, as the midfield looks to be super competitive. As a whole, Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren, and Aston Martin look to be poised all year long for an incredible mid-field battle.

There’s quite a bit to cover, but we’ll keep it simple.

I thought Lewis had a poor overall weekend. I don’t understand how the seven world champ is outperformed by George all weekend. If it wasn’t for external factors on both sides, I believe Lewis would have finished in 6th, and George would have had a podium.

Sergio Perez continues to look mediocre next to Max Verstappen
Lando and Oscar look like Max and Checo 😂

I would love to understand why Charles and the team TRULY got it so wrong. For him to be locking up the entire race and saying that he could never control the front end is crazy.

Popcorn continues as the Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda drama will play out over the year.

And another year, another loss for Lance Stroll against his teammate.

I’ll check back in soon to discuss the state of the union with the race-fixing allegations and what the Max to Mercedes / Red Bull empire crumbling before our eyes means!
