Man it feels like the start to last season for McLaren. Lando gets a good amount from the car to cruise comfortably into Q3 and Daniel continues to struggle and he’s out in Q2.

Red Bull top end speed too much it appears as long as they last for the entire race.

Max is going to run away with this if his car doesn’t blow up.

Safety car to make things interesting here. Have no idea what Gasly was doing. His performance clearly fell off a cliff after contact with Alonso. He probably should have retired the car.

Ferrari screw up the tire strategy under caution there? Horner seems to think they did.

Are they doing the podium in Orlando or what? This is weird.

So you think Ferrari will able to do anything to catch up to Red Bull in straight line speed advantage? If not, don't see them beating Max/Red Bull.

I think they can but it won’t be easy, they supposedly have a significant upgrade package coming for Spain.

Brudle trying to interview the guy who looked like Patrick Mahomes was pretty funny.
Ya, Thought the same. Really classic honest live scene imho.

Was really enjoying that guy from SkyNews just innocently trying to do his job in that frenetic pre race rush scene surrounded by celebrities.

I haven’t watched the race yet so I’m trying to avoid spoilers, just wanted to post this:
Liberty Media is buying up some LV land (39 AC. east of the Strip) ahead of the race for pre-development (approx. $240M). The pre-hype machine will be unreal.

Las Vegas just getting even more of a massive influx from professional sports leagues and related developers from around the world.

Yeah, Las Vegas off track is going to be wild. Not only do you get the whales like Monaco (maybe not quite as big), but it'll be maybe a little bit "accessible" to a more casual person as well.

By accessible I mean they might serve beer at $25/glass instead of only champagne at $125/glass
