Perez will miss the upcoming British GP (and probably 1-2 more races) after testing positive for covid-19 today.

We'll see who replaces him. Probably Gutierrez, who's on standby for Mercedes, but they could opt for someone like Hulkenberg too.

It's Hülk. Didn't think it'd happen for him, but it makes sense after all - really, there wasn't anyone else. Gutierrez hasn't driven enough kilometers in a F1 car since he's out of the sport (he's there as a sim driver, not as a reserve) and Vandoorne is occupied with Formula E. With Alonso signed for Renault ... kinda slim on other options ^^; Could have tried for Nico or Jenson I guess, and hope to get an exception, theoretically. But Hülk is good enough, knows the team, and has effectively just missed three races.

Hulk couldn't get his Racing Point out of Q2 despite the car being clearly able to do it (Stroll qualified P6 in the end, but only just got into Q3 with 0.000s to spare). I foresee Hülkenberg struggling in the race, does he really have the stamina to protect his neck through 90 minutes of these high-speed turns? It will be very hard for him, especially in the second half on lower fuel and higher speeds.

I do see Hülkenberg doing better next weekend, assuming Perez isn't cleared to partake by then.

F1 was bought by Liberty Media in 2017. This graph shows members in the subreddit r/formula1 over time. Liberty is doing something right for sure.

Checking this against the general growth of reddit seems it's more like "reddit does something right".

From what I could see, Reddit pretty much doubled its users from 2017 to 2020. So that doesn't nearly stack up, that'd put the subreddit at 350k users rather than 1.1m.

Ex-F1 racer Takuma Sato triumped for the second time at the Indy 500, taking the lead a few laps before the end and then leading the field across the line under a caution caused by a nasty Spencer Pigot crash.

Marcus Ericsson had made up 3 places to run 8th when his car lost control and he slammed into the wall after just 25 of the 200 laps. Slightly disappointing for him (and me!), he was looking fast enough to battle for the top 3.

Qualifying at Monza is a joke, and Dangerous. It's only a matter of time before we have another Billy Monger. What they need to do is release the cars one by one. When one car finishes it's fast lap, the next one is released. If the conditions change, tough luck

Well that was a race.

Thank God for Monza, everything about it makes it unique and that can produce results. Toro Rosso won in 2008, AlphaTauri in 2020. I love it.
