That is a good point, his battery was empty when Max passed him after the SC pulled in. He was bitching at the team over the radio.

Also, as a newbie, I've taken to enjoying watching FP1/2/3 mainly because Crofty and company seem much looser/rowdier during some of the early practices.  They crack me up.

 

Yeah I enjoy their silliness on Fri & Sat. I know Crofty goofs up a fair bit, but I don't get the hate so many have for him. I think he does a good job as the ringleader. That bunch, even with Karun, is miles ahead of the NBC crew. Natalie has been MIA a lot lately though. Do miss her & her legs.

Max went absolute beast mode the whole weekend. IMHO his potential is off the charts.

Lewis has said as much in the past.  That is, when he's not talking about people avoiding Max because he's dangerous. :)

As a Max fan it was nice to see his weekend result. I also agree that he needs to temper himself a lot of times and not crash out so much. He needs to understand the value of always scoring points, but he gets too worried about beating the world at times.

These days Max is no more 'dangerous' than most or all of the grid. That talk is way overblown. He's certainly not a guy who's gonna blink when someone is trying to intimidate him or get him to back down though. He's improved massively at just taking what's there and bringing the car home, which is what's going to make him so tough. There are guys on the current grid who've hardly improved at all in that regard over several years and can only dream of being as quick.

Yeah he was never quite Maldonado or Grosjean levels of danger and crashing. 

Or you can take the way back machine to the era of Andrea De Cesaris who has the most DNFs in history and once had 18 straight DNFs. 

His team even withdrew him from a race before it began because they were sure he would crash and it was getting too expensive to keep repairing the car.

Now they're making the 2nd flow sensor mandatory for 2020.

Also, not F1, but I thought y'all would enjoy this. Amazing ...

Bottas’ plan for next year to beat Hamilton appears to be to divorce his wife as step one.

Damn. That didn't take long.

Breaking his car with an assist from RoGro seems to be step 2

They did great following the midfield for most of the race and then cut the last lap where the two Rennos, a Ferrari, Redbull, Racing point and McLaren all swapping spots. 
 

Fuckers

Yeah it was turrible. Who really cared if Bottas caught the Ferrari?

It's funny. Over on Autosport there's a running thread dedicated to the FOM TV director not showing the actual action. Well over 600 posts now.
