    Hamilton has had a great career thus far. He'll come back & have more success

    He's made amazingly fortunate decisions about picking teams.

    It's funny how the reaction to this is split. Some think Kvyat was disrespectful, while others think he defended himself like the aspiring star he is.

    Speaking English is the rule. Alonso got reprimanded for communicating with the Ferrari team in Italian.

    Unbelievable start to the Spanish grand prix. The two Mercedes drivers take each other out on the 1st lap. 18 year old Max Verstappen - who was promoted to the Red Bull team this week when Kvyat got demoted to Torro Rosso - becomes the youngest driver to win an F1 race.

    Good for Verstappen. I haven't kept up today with F1. Looks like Hamilton got blocked, then wrecked into Rosburg.

    Rosburg has a commanding lead. I don't think it will hurt him that much

    F1: Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo got screwed by his team. Qualified on pole, he was leading the race, masterfully handling a wet track transitioning to dry, when he was called in to pit, and the crew didn't have the tires out. A normally sub-3-second pit became 14 seconds. He finished 7 seconds behind Hamilton.

    Neat. Here's an example of how extreme aero is in F1. This is the front wing of the Mercedes. f1-australian-gp-2014-mercedes-amg-f1-w05-front-wing-detail.jpg

    European Grand Prix this past weekend was the inaugural race in Baku, Azerbaijan. It was a surprisingly cool city, in which the race ran through the streets. It's one of the most interesting and challenging F1 tracks around, with many elevation changes, some really tight turns, several high-speed sweepers along a wall, and the longest straight in F1 at 1.25 mi. This was Nico's pole lap

    Almost 350kph on that course? Wow

    They get so freakin' close to the walls, and then they take the last left-right turn leading to the long straight at 195 MPH, while pointed right at the wall! Big balls.

    From Formula1.com:
    Hamilton may have missed the podium, but the Briton did at least clock the fastest recorded speed in the race - 364.4 km/h (226.4 mph) at the finish line, which is also the fastest recorded speed seen this season. Not bad for a street track…

    F1 race on CNBC. I guess the Tour de France is more important on NBCSN

    Rosburg tried to force Hamilton off the course. Now he missed the podium
