SKY's in-depth assessment of the 2020 MB W11...."the fastest F1 car that ever lived" and MB's James Allison's technical assessment of why the W11 is so fast was a great insider's look at just why MB continues to dominate the F1 grid.

Max is on the clean side of the track while BOT is on the dirty side, should be an interesting start.

Hopefully he can get away clean. His last few starts have been horrible.

He may have injured his feet a bit but I must say the crash tests and requirements certainly saved Grosjean big time, looks like he collided with the pack that made him a passenger. Did something break on the Haas? he veered off before hitting Kvyat.

Na, just classic Grosjean error. Glad he’s ok. Don’t think anyone will complain about the halo ever again. It stayed intact piercing through a steel barrier.
