SEN's life may have been spared if the RF suspension arm(s) did not crush his forehead in about 2 inches....

Thats right, they have something called zylon now which runs through some hanger arms, its like 700 odd strands of some space age material in one unit stronger than steel that would likely have saved Senna.

He's one hundredth off on similar program (FP1). He's 0.3-0.4 off on a different program (FP2). Both drivers will be back on the same program in FP3.

He had/has a big fight (big hassle) with Binotto and the Ferrari management...
The latest rumours are saying , SEB will leave Ferrari ASAP...

Are we going to see Binotto with a black eye?
I would call it (Ferrari in trouble) because of he leaves who's going to drive for them?

They'll probably grab Gioviazzi if Vet walks and shove Schumacher into AR.. VET's banging that 1000 into the kerbs as if they were part of the track!

I was just reading about the results of the long runs , and that was really interesting ...

The Mercs ran 6 laps and their tires looked pretty bad .
MAX ran 9 laps and his tires looked still OK . After 4 laps MAX was 0.8 sec. faster than HAM and more than 1 sec. faster than the viking .
Well if you ask me , this makes me think at Silverstone 2 .
Of course as we know ,the race has to be driven yet...

Dutch source mate?
Of course mate .I'm Flemish ! English is my third language , but speak and write in 4 languages .

Well , Lewis is really worried about MAX . He saw that MAX was really fast in the long runs from today .
According Lewis : "MAX is dangerously close to us" !
3 articles in Dutch :

1-Lewis worried => https://racingnews365.nl/hamilton-is...-heel-dichtbij

2-Mercedes (James Allison) MAX is just as fast as us => https://racingnews365.nl/mercedes-zi...o-snel-als-wij

3-Horner happy => Today during the long runs MAX ran outstanding on mediums and hard , no tire issues or whatsoever => https://racingnews365.nl/horner-kijk...edium-erg-goed

That's why he wanted mandatory 2 stops.

I really hope Vettel doesn't get stuck behind drivers who are slower but outqualified him because his tire management was great and on the medium tire long runs he was 4-5th fastest.

One thing that caught my eye was that Verstappen was entering T1 one gear lower than the rest and T1 one gear higher. While Leclerc and Vettel were consistently using lower gear exiting which shows the low torque of their engines.

I wish SEB the best of luck

Vikings had no qualms about raiding Lindisfarne,a peaceful Christian community in 793.The savagery of that raid, one of many by them sent shockwave through Europe. The event was recorded on the famous 'Domesday stone'.
'heathen men came and miserably destroyed God's church on Lindisfarne with plunder and slaughter'
