    2017 F1 Thread 10th Mar 17 at 4:22 PM
    Sad way to start it but John Surtees former Formula 1 and motorcycling world champion has died at the age of 83, his family have announced.

    As for the F1 testing it looks like this might be an interesting season as Ferrari are looking pretty good in testing. Mercedes might have some real competition this year. Looks like McClaren's problems are continuing though.

    But that is what makes it , the race otherwise was fairly boring except a couple of good overtakes.

    Leaves the halfway stage with almost level pegging and Vettel just in the Championship lead. All to play for, but more so train for, over the mid Championship break.

    Good luck to Paul di Resta who's replacing Felipe Massa at Williams today due to Massa's illness.

    It'll be a big call for PDR to even get some points, as he'd not even driven the 2017 car before qualifying yesterday, and he hasn't raced in F1 since 2013, but stranger things have happened in F1 before.

    He didn't disgrace himself by any stretch of the imagination. Was a decent enough race as any of the rope 4 could have won it.

    Anyone watch qualifying? The supposed delay of 15 minutes turned into two and a half hours!

    As a big Lewis Hamilton fan I was pleased that he broke the record for poles. He also showed Vettel how to drive in the rain.

    It's not the showing vettel how to drive with in the rain, it's hopefully showing the world that he's better than Verstappen in the rain.

    I get really annoyed in F1 now that everyone goes on about Brazil 16 as verstappens race, showing the field how its done in the wet. He did amazingly, no doubt, but at one point spun it well out of control and saved it because he was on the widest bit of track. Up front Hamilton won by miles without a single error and got ignored. Yesterday verstappen was getting praised again for his ability in the wet to always find grip. And was over a second adrift.

    It sounded like quite a commanding weekend for Hamilton but the next couple of tracks should suit the Ferrari so it should be interesting.

    Welcome back to the thread after a few races off.

    I didn't see the race nor the qualifying as I'm in France. Was Vettel's qualifying that bad that he only timed fifth best, or worse? I read there were grid penalties for a few drivers.

    Yes Vettel's qualifying was pretty bad. He is not good in the rain and it was absolutely tipping down.

    I think he came 7th in qualifying but because of grid penalties a couple of the drivers in front of him had to go behind him! The grid penalties sure are confusing. The commentators on Sky F1 were saying how much they hate the penalties and how confusing they find them

    Missed Q1, but have made it for the important bits.
