The FIA have taken some parts of the fuel systems from a Ferrari, a Ferrari customer team and a non Ferrari team to investigate. Doesn’t sound like Ferrari are out of the woods yet with questions over their power unit....

Even if they cheated the FIA wouldn't do gooseberry fool. As their former boss and fat toad in charge would see to it.

The teams are Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Red Bull according to the Italian version of Motorsport.com

Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if Hamilton does help promote them, seems his kind of thing to do really.

Last time I looked (about a year ago) he was promoting L’Oreal Men Expert.

I’ve not seen him do anything for them in a while so maybe the contract has ended on that one?

Impossible, if the adverts told me anything it’s that he eats, sleeps, and gooseberry fools L’Oreal Men Expert. And then he chugs a gallon of Monster Energy.

I got some Formula E tickets for the London race in the summer. Can get five seats for the price of a GA Silverstone ticket.

Silverstone is really expensive, my GA ticket for the weekend (plus camping pitch for Thursday to Sunday) was £285, obviously you then have food and drink on top so it works out rather expensive! It definitely is where Formula E shines, people can just hop on a train, get to the ‘track’, enjoy the session they’ve gone to see before doing other stuff in the city or going home, plus its loads cheaper.

Last qualifying session of the year just getting underway, for a 21 race season it’s gone by remarkably quickly, but that just seems to be the case with everything these days.

Always found Abu Dhabi a weird one as well, good track to drive on the games but produces a pretty awful race most years.

Ferrari are their own worst enemies, messing about trying to find a gap only for them to both be too slow, granted Albon was going slow in front but they both could have been a lot closer so they could have had a semi decent last run in Q3.

Sums up Ferrari’s season really

Good to see Hamilton end the season with a pole

Norris wins quali battle with Sainz 11-10 but Sainz has really had the measure of Norris in the races, even allowing for Norris’ bad luck

It might help if they get rid of the chicane before that hairpin which leads on to the back straight. Just make it a wider radius single hairpin (use the escape road as the track) like the one at Montreal. Doing so might allow the cars to run closer through there so that there is more overtaking on the straight.
