If anyone still wants to do a quick write up on a team, driver, or track now is the time.

Only drivers left to write about are Will Stevens, Roberto Merhi, Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, Felipe Nasr, and Giedo van der Garde (lol).

Only teams left to write for are Red Bull, Sauber, and Toro Rosso.

And the only track left to write about is Bahrain (lol).

Will Stevens. As I said to my sister, "who the gently caress is that". She said "gently caress knows, thought you did".

Sums him up. Also he is tiny.

We could see 16 cars start this weekend if Saubers cars end up in a Melbourne warehouse and Manor DNQ

Ignoring the 05 US GP when was the last time 16 cars started a Grand Prix?

Between Carlos and Max, Toro Rosso did 63 laps so more than the GP distance.

Meanwhile McLaren only did 13 laps.

Hey Mclaren are clearly so confident that they don't even need to bother with this whole testing/practice business!

The McLaren garage looked very, very tense.

Of course the Mercedes are also 1 second plus ahead of Bottas, but I'm wondering if the STR's both being in the top six is actual pace or a real strange fluke. Guess we'll wait and see!
