    The F-1 boys roll into Japan this week-end and the Mercs have returned with a vengeance. In the wake of what occurred in Russia, Ferrari is coming into this race in shambles and this development was rather sudden. We shall see if Ferrari can recover as Hamilton looks to seal-the-deal for another championship.

    appears a typhoon will impact the race, qualifying moved to Sunday. I would guess some remaining rain will stick around.

    I will be out of town so this is a tough guess

    Verstappen
    Hamilton
    Leclerc
    Bottas

    Motherfucking fuck fuck!!!

    Qualifying happens my time 6 PM due to the postponement.

    So I'm thinking "Perfect, the cusp of happy hour!"

    Nope. TSN, our carrier who has 5 fucking channels on my cable box is instead showing the BC Lions-Edmonton Eskimo game on 3 channels, UFC on 1 channel and fucking US college football on the 5th channel.

    So I have to pay attention to internet to see who qualified where, etc.

    Plus that fucking storm cancelled a rugby match I was stoked for, England-France.

    All kinds of drama going on here.

    Leclerc given 15 seconds of penalties, first for losing control of his car and bouncing Verstappen out. Then also given another for not pitting to fix the wing which eventually broke off and missed Hamilton's head by a foot. Crazy dangerous. And it illustrated how the halo isn't enough. F1 needs to adopt the aeroscreen.

    Racing Point filed a complaint alleging that Renault is using an illegal brake bias system and has been for some time. So, not only is Renault's result here in question, but all of their results this season. Their very future in the sport is also in question.

    Mercedes wins their 6th straight constructor's championship and now only their two drivers are capable of winning the driver's title which guarantees a 6th straight 1-2 in the driver's title too. Insane.

    15 seconds is fuck all for that.

    He ruined Verstappen's race, he ruined Norris' race (crud in a brake duct), etc.

    I have no idea what he was thinking.

    And he gets 15 seconds.

    Maybe that's why McLaren moved on to Mercedes. They could foresee Renault biting the dust.
