13 Formula 1 and MotoGP season updates

Cover for Formula 1 and MotoGP season updates

Both MotoGP and Formula 1 last week produced some great racing. As quick reaction to news is not my forte, I am, as usual, late with my post-race analysis.

Those who are following both championsihps closely, may be interested in my thoughts and reaction to the action on track (MotoGP Assen post race, Formula 1 Baku post race). I am releasing post-race commentary after most races.

Formula 1 will return next weekend and MotoGP has the German GP scheduled for this Sunday.

Raikonnen a solid fifth and Bottass fourth for the Finns in Suzuka. Vettel may not quite be up to it now for a big team. Always bold but now reckless.Verstappen hitting his stride. Stroll retired unfortunately.

Congrats to Hamilton for win and record 69th pole. Excellent race for my Canuck Stroll. You knew a few of the guys who sacrificed themselves for Singapore would catch Lance. Too bad Ricciardo didn't win as his parents are Sicilian and Calabrese. Would have been nice if Ferrari won but Monza is a brute speed track which favours the Germans.

68th pole for Hamilton in Belgium! Ricciardo tries low drag option but is slower. Hulkenburg qualifies 7th.

What a race! Alonso gets sixth. by a good margin but 50 seconds behind Verstappen. Shows the Performance gap between the big three and everyone else. McLaren upped their game. Well Honda has a decent Kart engine. Verstappen needs to focus his energy. When will 2 Redbull cars finish the same race? Still way ahead of Force India. Hamilton was a sport with Bottas getting the Finn third ahead of him and foiling Verstappens charge.

Vettel gets pole in Hungary and a Ferrari lock out up front! Hopefully Kimi R or Verstappen win as they're due. Seventeen drivers beat mighty Schumachers 2004 pole in the massively powerful V10! Alonso qualifies 8th in that McLaren jalopy...maybe the best lap ever! Hopefully Stroll can get points but Williams struggled in qualifying. Handling is making up for power lost through rules. Nothing new. In the 50's you could go 290 bhp at most NA 2.5 litre or 205bhp(realistically) supercharged 0.75 litre! Shockingly everyone chose the Naturally Aspirated engine lol.Viva la Tifosi!

Alonso qualified like 2 seconds faster than last year's pole position. Crazy~~

alonso will soon be shown the door if he doesn't get his act straight

he's better off guiding isis and other terrorist groups with a turban on top of his head with a vtec logo, because he no longer can win or even make it on to the podium with a better engine.

better to call it quits before the end of this years season and get to know the bulls back home and what they like and dislike

Then McLaren will get 10th at best in any race.

Bottas gets pole.

The slight tow up the hill to turn 2 was all the difference between pole and 2nd. Even without the Yellow flags, Hamilton had no chance. It was Vettel vs Bottas the whole way
