    2020 Turkish GP

    Ohhhhh baby this qualifying is unreal. Fresh pavement plus rain plus a thousand horsepower equals good viewing

    This new asphalt is something else. Interesting for sure.

    Yeah, pretty much the worst possible situation for grip

    What a grid. For all the crap Stroll gets, that was a mega effort. Stewards are reviewing multiple yellow flag violations, there could be some changes.

    Yeah, that was a thriller. I'm curious what will come of the yellows. Magnussen made a good point; he slowed down through the yellows and others didn't. But it's so hard to know who was going fast or slow in conditions like those

    PHD Lance on pole, Perez in 3rd to start. Should make for a very interesting race

    I'm actually looking forward to getting up at 330 to watch this race. Quali was riveting.

    Damn, that was a good race. Legend takes the championship with style.

    LOL Stroll. Nice work by Checo, too bad the thug is taking his seat. The thug had a good drive though.

    MAX could've won this, too impatient and poor racecraft.

    Disaster for Bottas, he was spinning so much i thought the thug was in his car.

    That was the best race in a long time, and the best evidence we've had that high speed and high downforce make for crappy racing. DRS ruined multiple good battles when it was activated, and I'll be happy to see that disappear too. Really enjoyable overall, and it was great not knowing where anyone was going to end up.

    Stroll did a really good job but didn't have the tires under him after his last stop. Perez pulled a Perez and went a million laps on his tires for a well-deserved podium. Vettel definitely deserves that podium, even if it was handed to him in the final corners. Leclerc gave it a shot and it didn't pay off; no shame in that though I'm sure he's LIVID. Bottas was hard to watch, I felt horrible for him. Hamilton did well of course but I don't find it interesting.

    Yea that was good...driving in those conditions made me nervous for the Drivers, although it looked easier than qualifying!...was hoping to see Stroll out front...frustrating day for him for sure.
    Max style and slippery conditions don't seem to play well together!

    Too bad the public/Turks couldn't come out to enjoy their track.

    Yeah, it was too bad the facility was closed.

    Martin Brundle put it well during the broadcast, saying he was tired of seeing drivers able to go flat out through almost every corner, and that mindset leads to mistakes like Verstappen's that sent him spinning off behind the other car.
