A sad start to the F1 back to school after hols season.

We lost a young man all of 22yrs that was destined for F1.
Anthoine Hubert died doing what he loved.
Driving as fast as he could to entertain the crowds.

F1, F2 are dangerous sports, which I suppose is one of the attractions.

Seeing men controlling these beasts at incredible speeds.
But some time these beasts escape the drivers control and devour them.

Earnest Hemingway once said:

“There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.”

Anthoine Hubert, we the public salute you. RIP.

As for the race. another bad day at the office for Haas.
Pretty forgettable.
The car still behaving like a diva. Sometimes it works and then most times it will not.
But we live in hope. Maybe in Monza we will get the real Haas deal.
