@wsrgo You’re right, not sure where I got the national Formulas idea from, but I’ve been forgetting heaps this week, sorry.
Looking at de Vries’ dominant form in karting, though, I think most people expected a little too much from him last year, myself included. 5th isn’t bad at all, but like you said, he’s nowhere this year and there doesn’t seem to be a obvious cause for that. I’m curious how McLaren are helping him too, as I hear about Stoffel Vandoorne going to train at McLaren all the time, but de Vries not so much, but that could be social media integration.
Shame about Eurosport yet again delaying the broadcast until nearly 11 here. It’s been ages since I’ve caught a race live.
