Never been much of a Red Bull fan either. I never liked how they used all grey areas of the rules to their advantage, while giving other teams a hard time for doing exactly the same thing. I also don’t understand what their marketing side is trying to achieve: Red Bull is supposed to be young, fresh and full of life, but their F1 team has always had such a cold vibe to it.
Their latest developments should be taken with a pinch of salt. Compare it to negotiating at the market: something is originally 50 Pounds/Euros/whatever, but you want to buy it for 40. So what do you do, offer 40? No, you offer 30. I think that’s what Horner’s doing here, saying some extreme stuff, but eventually settling for something less extreme.
However, I think this has given them such a backlash, they really need to start paying attention to their image. If Red Bull drops down the order even further, I think HQ will be very quick to pull the plug and withdraw from F1 and the junior categories.
Early in the race – great place to watch
Seb being naughty during an interview:
Race footage (skip to 5:16), not anything particularly noteworthy:
Kvyat’s car being recovered: (will look for something better than this)
Generic racing footage from the final turn – somewhere around the first pit stops?
Great video here: Magnussen’s engine dying on the opening lap:
I’ve been coming here for about five years now and I really love it here. It’s one of the few sites that combines good informative F1 news with sharp criticism on the sport. And of course the community here is great, full of really nice and knowledgeable people. All in all, I’ve enjoyed coming here for years and I’m sure I will keep coming back for many more years! :)
Quick advice if you’re scanning the comments before watching: run, run now, just run, don’t watch it, it’s even worse than Keith made it sound.
