    F1 MUST improve safety for the guys in the pit. The incident today should never have happened. It just shouldn't.
    Early reports suggest that the mechanic, Francesco has a fractured tibia and fibula in what looks like a horrible lateral impact.

    My thoughts are with you Francesco. Stay strong and I hope you get through this to a full recovery.

    “Fernando...Honda is faster than you...can you confirm you understand the message?”
    Cheap shot, I know, but I’m so happy, been saying since 2016 that McLaren chassis is not nearly as good as they think.

    Brilliant race from Ricciardo. One of the best races in ages all round...except for the TR result. To be fair, they always indicated they'd struggle with pace in China, and so they did.

    I have never said that the Honda engine was a great one. They definitively have had a lot of issues with the PU, and still have performance issues. But what pissed me off is that McLaren put all the blame on Honda, they told everyone the reason they were at the bottom of the speed trap was because of Honda, and their chassis was at the same level as Red Bull. We just found in 2018 that it was a pile of bull and the chassis is mediocre at best.
    And also neither Honda nor Toro Rosso have made statements that the engine is at the same level as Mercedes or Ferrari.
