Say hello to my little race day thread...
 
I'm so sorry, I think I'm stuck in David Croft mode after trying to predict which Miami pop culture references he would crowbar in this weekend. Anyway, so here we are, going to Miami and what have we learned? Well, that the track has definitely caught a lot of attention thanks to the determined approach the organisers took to being denied permission to build a track around the bay, no problem they just built their own marina...and their own water:

I'm going to level with you, I think the fake water is quite clever and that the whole thing is pretty funny in a good way. Less smile generating is the track itself, already seeing a huge hit which ruled Ocon out of qualifying. Fingers crossed for the race because nothing's going to change ahead of the race. In quali itself, this is how the drivers ended up:

No sprint race, just fast laps and Leclerc starting on pole.

When is this thing on?
 
Late! And unusually, half past the hour:
 
UK:
20.30
 
Local 15.30

What about the weather?
 
It has been raining. It may rain again. Let's have updates in the run up.

 

Also, because like F1 at times, I'm stuck in the '80s, please get in the Miami mood to the tune of Crockett's theme, which I suddenly realise reminds me powerfully of West End Girls

I predict a race that is either incredibly chaotic or incredibly tedious. Anything in between would be a very pleasant surprise, and that is certainly what I hope for  :up:

Tim Truman's Season 5 Miami Vice score beats Jan Hammer IMO! Listen to those rocking guitars! And Crockett looking cool on bike

Hopefully that Testarossa comes with authentic car phone. And mirror only on one side.

Can we nominate the track as the ugliest? Give me the Ardennes forest over this place any Sunday.

I sooooo want that white Testarossa. My favourite Ferrari road car. Look at how cool it is.

Ferrari missed a golden opportunity to run a Miami Vice white livery with the neon blue and pink as accents. Complete with the hats, shirts and other merch, it would have been a collector’s item.

I too appreciate races that only last for 2 laps behind the Slowpoke-car.

 

Oh, and i predict that today is the day when F1 goes full IndyCar.

Hey, if you have one of those image graphics which shows the time everywhere, that would be great! My googling skills failed me.

Looks like he has abandoned 2 of his 3 watches. Maybe he is trying to wean himself off them...

So, Verstappen has returned one set of Hards and both RedBulls have 1H 2M at their disposal.

This could have huge implications for the race.

both mediums are used tyres , the hard is brand new

Are you thinking that Max can go for Medium-Hard-medium?

Ferrari cannot afford that they have to go with Medium-hard-hard, or soft

No, these are the brand new tyres everyone has saved. If it's a one stopper then no big deal, everyone will go M-H.

If it's a two stopper, then we could see that one team got it wrong.

Something like that.

 

 

Which explains why there were so few people in the grandstands for the W Series race.

Pirelli thinks it's a two stopper, with the MHH and MMH combinations being equally fast.

I think it'll be a two stopper without any SCs. Don't see too much difference between M/M/H and M/H/H, if anything the former will give you a better undercut opportunity.

Should also be quite a long race by modern F1 standards, just about hitting 90 mins without SCs.

There will be at least one SC, though not the red flag diarrhoea of doom many are predicting.

The real deciding factor will be which lap Latifi crashes on and how that'll impact Ferrari and Red Bull.

Actually… this is a very good look for him. I really like it. My complexion is quite close to that of Lewis, at least in summer, and I would rock it too… if I dared to.

Why so many complaints about the asphalt on this circuit? is it because they used a different aggregate to the other circuits? There was an article that they used limestone along with granite at this circuit, while everywhere else it is granite. Is it so bad or divers just exaggerating? How was it in the Formula Women's race?

LATEST RADAR — A number of showers have developed to the west of Miami Gardens that could bring light rain to the circuit in the short-term  

Just over two hours until the race begins at 15:30 local time.

[Adam Cooper] A lot of good things about Miami but teams and sponsors not happy with the quality of service in the Paddock Club, run locally rather than by the usual F1 organisation. Tickets are $13,000 so people expect 5 stars... First world problems I know, but lessons to be learned

Bloody hell... 13 grand for a sporting weekend. I'd expect to eat the finest yellow fin tuna sashimi off Charles Leclerc's stomach for that price.
