Default F1 2019

So I forced myself to watch the qualifying and ended up surfing the net with it on in the background.

No drama, no spectacle, nothing to hold my interest and the Mercs are at the front of the grid by a huge margin.

Yawn.

After 27 years of never missing a single qualifying or race, I think this will be the season F1 loses me.

Very little overtaking, very little drama and large quantities of money and resource consumed in the process.

I'll admit the fastest lap angle at the end kept my eyes on the screen for about 3 minutes, but the rest was effectively just background commentary whilst I did other stuff.

Th engine noise is still a big factor for me and the lack of overtaking is no better despite all the tweaking and new wings etc.

I'll give it a few more races then likely give up and just maybe catch the odd highlights show if things don't improve.

It was very boring after the first couple of corners. The fastest lap thing was ok, but a bit false in my opinion. Really hope it's not going to be another Mercedes walk over this year. Also, bring back Ted's Notebook !

At least Hamilton acknowledged he was gifted the win I suppose. Leclerc was amazing though. It looked like Vettel just couldn't cope with him.

It's not a good showcase for race 1000. Other than the Vettel / Verstappen tussle it's been bit quiet.
edit: Merc even had time to double stack in the pit stops and still cruise to another 1- 2 finish !

Going by current reviews, I am pleased I have not watched any yet.
