Yeah, not a fan of that decision, but that’s the world we live in now. Liberty have also confirmed that the European races and the Brazilian Grand Prix, are being pushed back by an hour and 10 minutes. So, that’s changing from 1pm, to race starts of 2:10.

Why?

To suit American audiences picard

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it springs to mind.

In other news, McLaren look like they’re going back to their historical papaya livery.

I don't really care about grid girls either way. The races mainly being predictable and lacking action are far bigger reasons to not ttune ime in

Haas VF-18

Been looking forward to Paddy Lowe’s & Dirk de Beer (ex-Ferrari aero boss) first car, and here is the Williams FW41. Unsurprisingly, there’s elements of a Mercedes aero package in there, along with the Ferrari side-pods.

True, but the reasoning behind it is all screwed up IMO. Apparently its sexist and demeaning and the girls shouldn't have to put up with guys ogling them...which is BS. Most of the time they wore pretty modest attire and I've never read or heard any reports of them being subject to inappropriate behaviour.

Also an idiotic decision to replace them with "Grid Kids". I don't see them having the capability to stand still for long periods of time (at least not without their phones). Will also require adult supervision so they don't get lost or wander off somewhere they shouldn't... picard

Confirmed. It will be replaced by the race livery when they start testing in Barcelona.

Cars are looking pretty good so far...though I predict the RB could suffer overheating issues in the Middle & Far East with those sidepods.

Naturally a good looking car isn't necessarily a good at but the Renault is absolutely beautiful
