2 F1 Fan comments on “Race Results 2019 Azerbaijan F1 Grand Prix

  1. Rod

    I am shocked that any F1 fan still believes the pre-race hype coming from Mercedes re the so-called "Ferrari edge". It doesn't exist. All they're trying to do is get fans to watch in the hope there is such a thing. But there isn't. This series, after more than 50 years of great racing, is dead in the water.

    Once again tyre management is the big focus for all teams. When will Liberty realize fans want to see true wheel to wheel outright racing without drivers having to " look after " the tyres.
