    Does it matter. We already know Mercedes will win the constructors and drivers titles regardless who their drivers are. F1 must be the only sport that we already know the result before the season starts. and now with polotics dragged into or day off, Colombo is more interesting to watch.

    I'm going to tell you a story. It's the story about a F1 team that had the best car in F1 history. They had a #1 driver who was perhaps the best of his era. One day the #1 driver got sick and had to miss a race. They promoted another driver to drive this fantastic car for this one race. He qualified on the first row and when the race started he quickly worked his way to the lead. He drove his heart out and many people were happy. But back in the pit lane there was a problem. If this first time, replacement driver, won the race would it cheapen the teams championships? Would it effect how people thought of the #1 driver and his many victories and championships? So at the very tippy top, with their cars running 1st and 2nd, it was decided to call them in to change tires. Somehow the wrong tires went on the wrong cars and they had to be called in again. "How could they make such a stupid mistake?" people asked. At that point the team breathed a sigh of relief. Their #1 was still a true champion. How could they make such a stupid mistake?

    Chinese gp should be boycotted anyway along with events such as winter Olympics.. Sport shouldn't be political but the atrocities that nation has put on the world covid-19, human rights in Hong Kong and conflict in India to name but a few.. To host events like these is a privilege they don't deserve.

    As a Canadian, I'm not expecting the Canadian GP to go ahead in June either. It's a solo fly-away, the track may be on an island but the only access outside of the teams is by subway from downtown Montreal. If they doo have it there will have to be a no fan race and the problem even with that is the downtown core parties like you would not believe for several days and drawss in people from all over JUST TO PARTY! Half of the people that descend on the city watch the race from a bar. In short, it should be moved if possible to line up with the North/South American fly-away.

    Those excuses are not why Formula 1 isn't starting in Melbourne. We have the best contact tracing in the world in Australia which is why we can get on top of an outbreak so quickly and shut the virus down and so that isn't the reason. The reason is that the UK is so full of covid 19 and with the new variant that spreads faster we just weren't prepared to accept the risk of allowing anybody from the UK and europe in to Australia.

    If it really is just about money with Lewis then he is a massive hypocrite. The whole world is suffering because of COVID and he wants to get payed more despite already having the best salary by far. People are losing there jobs everywhere and if you can't see how unethical this is then you're no longer in touch with how real people are living there lives. And you know this would be fine if he was just like every other top athlete but he's not. He's always claiming to want to make the world a better place. If this is true then that just means it's mostly all an act. Despicable...

Visits almost every race and he says he's never seen Hamilton at a race at all. Never.

    Sadly, I’m not confident the American leg (Austin, Mexico & Brazil) races will happen either due to the current covid situation. And if they do, it’s highly unlikely the Australian/Victorian government will not allow anyone who has been to any of those countries to enter without a stupid long quarantine period. As an Australian/Victorian, it pains me to say it, but I think logistically and medically, it would be safer stay in Europe/the northern hemisphere.

The only reason it’s not happening here is because we want them to Quarantine but f1 doesn’t wanna do that, we are the season opener which means you’d have plenty of time! But I do understand that there would be more than 1000 (estimation) crew and including drivers
