154 Formula 1 2020 starts today

Cover for Formula 1 2020 starts today

Despite the ongoing pandemic apocalypse, Formula 1 show will go on, with the late season opening race scheduled for this weekend at the Red Bull Ring.

While pandemic situation in America is quickly worsening, Europe seems to have the worst behind it, at least for now. Formula 1 have so far scheduled only 8 races, first two happening in same location - Red Bull Ring, in two consecutive weekends. Further extensions to the quickly changing calendar are expected, with optimistic target of having 15 to 18 races.

18 race calendar, given the late start, would mean 2020 season stretching out well into late autumn. The worst case scenario of skipping 2020 entirely with no drivers and constructors champion for the history books, seems to be avoided. There is no requirement to have certain number of races for a "valid" F1 season. Given this uncertainty, teams will not be able to strategize which races should be prioritized and every Grand Prix will almost feel like championship decider.

As usual, I will publish fastest lap times from Saturday qualifying sessions right here in the Fastestlaps track pages.

I really don't understand how Mercedes haven't fired him, he is clearly unhinged.

Maybe its because he's the most successful F1 driver right now.

Doesn't matter I would fire him in a heart beat. Doesn't matter how good he is if he is mentally ill and projects insane messages on F1 podium ceremonies. Completely ruins the sport, makes it unwatchable. I used to watch F1 but I don't anymore and probably wont in long time. I refuse to pay attention to sports with these kind of people and this kind of messaging and narrative being pushed.

Absolutely disgusting and repulsive. I am shocked, since I haven't watched F1 I literally find out about these things via fastestlaps comments section.

F1 is basically as bad as NFL now. Totally gone.

Nah, its definitely what I said.

While I generally agree that one shouldn't include contentious world issues where they can be taken in poor sport, what he did was totally his choice, and I wouldn't call that an "insane message". Its basically demanding justice.
Nonetheless, the authorities were right to ban this sort of behavior, since as I stated, it is contentious.

I'd argue that its better to add family cars to the website than be a repulsive hater.

Dude, those rainbows have nothing to do with LGBT. I coudn't care less if they renamed "F1" to "LGBT1". What I cannot stand is racism. And those rainbows are racist messaging against me and European people who look like me. Same as what the looney Hamilton is doing.

I promise I won't be continuing on this topic, I think its way too insidious, I prefer to sit back and be amused by all this madness and not get involved.

Oh right, so when I post something which 95% of the sane world believes in, its called being "gay" or "stupid", and when you post your usual hateful garbage, its called opinion. Very enlightening, thanks.

The reason why Breonna Taylor died is because her drug fcuked boyfriend fired at the cops first, hitting one of them in the leg after they broke down the door, facts matter...

Considering how concerned F1 and Lewis Hamilton in particular is about ******, I hope they aren't going to ignore the thousands of ******* imprisoned in *****. Oh wait that might not come without a cost. They are selfish ****** with no interest in stopping ****** or any other problem that doesn't directly affect them. Their only interest is political activism. It's also funny how they are just discovering this problem now.

It's hard to believe that Ferrari are so much slower in a straight line compared to last year but this article raises a number of questions. Ferrari need to get their shit together coz this is simply not good enough.

I wish you guys would keep politics away from Formula 1 related topic, because it is super toxic right now and someone will always get offended no matter what your views are.


User avatar

Some of the things you're discussing here have nothing to do with Formula 1. Like not even remotely.

I'm not watching F1 anymore. I really want to but they trying to be popular by drawing peoples attention to problems that don't exist, not to mention how ****ing *** it is putting bloody rainbows on the cars.

Why is F1 Mercedes allowed to run a dual-axis steering system? They've already got the best overall package without it and this gives them an even greater advantage, albeit very minor. F1 stewards should not have allowed this modification.

Damn, Ferrari are nearly a full 1s slower than they were last year for qualifying... looks like Ferrari are the 5th fastest team now, maybe even the 6th.
