Unfortunately the title will most likely be wrapped up at this race. I wonder when the next time will be that the championship is decided at the last race, seems like its been forever since 2016...

A real pity. Even though I am happy for Hamilton to win the title, I would have loved for the title to go to the end.

I'll be there. Leaving tomorrow morning to tae my brother to his first Formula One race. I'm completely stoked!

Being there to watch Lewis win his 6th cHAMpionship will be epic!! I'll be sitting in the Red Bull section because I'm their guest.

Unfortunately I wont be attending this year, all of my motorsport buddies had previous engagements

I'll be there in three weeks as a marshal though for a 24h endurance race.

Let us know how your experience went after you come back from the race though!

Will do. I've probably spent more laps as a driver there than any single track. I absolutely love it. I've been there for 3 driving events and probably have between 3 and 4 hundred laps there.

And thanks for marshaling. You and your colleagues are absolutely heroic. Most people don't know what it takes to do that job.

Cheers-mk

Surprise surprise, Ferrari allocated the same tires for VET and LEC. That means they will not have enough data on all compounds. SMH

No worries. Those charts have deceived my eyes on a few occasions as well.
