And for a 46 years-old gentleman driver, Giuseppe Cipriani is not doing bad at all.

Watched the first race and its like wacky racers :lol: . Half the field lost their noses at the first corner.

Sitokin looks very quick, although having stalled off the line he was a lap down and didnt have to worry about the tyres.

Yeah, it's a mess. Coming into pits to change tyres with broken wing, but nah, let's leave wing as it is :lol:.

Sirotkin looks very quick indeed, fastest lap after fastest lap and in the end his FL was 5 tenths faster than next guy.

Sirotkin is the star of the future surely. Hopefully he will make his way in F1 not as a pay driver

Someone needs to tell these guys what a braking point is!!! Crazy stuff! :D

That Soritkin looks pretty good, considering his age and experience level thats pretty impressive, quickest guy in both races, if only he hadn't mucked his race 1 start up. I'm going to keep an eye out for him.

If it's not superior car then Sirotkin is mega talented. It's scary how fast he was yesterday or today.

BTW. Driving standard is sooo bad.

Well they do not know when to break. And 4 cars wheel to wheel do not fit into a corner. But yeah epic race. Let us see what WTCC is about in an hour.

I wonder how much of a weight advantage Sirotkin has. Probably has much more ballast to play with - still a pretty impressive drive. Looks like he's also doing Italian F3 this year.

Entertaining race in any case. I suspect De Jong wasn't the only one with massive brake problems. And i still think a ban on tyre warmers in F1 would be a nice idea to spice things up.

About 75% of the drivers decided, at one point or another, that their braking point was bout 100 meters later than usual causing crashes/chicane hopping (literally in one case) and generally poor driving standards, fun to watch though!!

:lol: @Mastah Fong certainly has had a few to many spring rolls!

Great win for Sirotkin in race 1 at Valencia. Flew past Quaife-Hobbs at the start and had him comfortably for pace.

Yep, comfortable win :up:. And his English is already very good, so watch out VitPet, watch out, there's young compatriot coming after ya...

He'll do 5 races this weekend, yikes.

Indeed. Started to watch him since this year, maybe first decent russian on the way i hope. Though Quaife-Hobbs will be tough to beat.

Sirotkin has the legs on Quaife-Hobbs but due to his lack of points from the first weekend, he has lots to do if he is to win what is a short championship.

He's already at 16 got better pedigree than Petrov and speaks far better English than him.
