Oh wow, F1 just put the full Malaysia 2001 race on their official Youtube channel. Liberty media finally convinced them the internet is a thing.

What an absolutely insane race though not always for the best reasons. Think I might watch it all again, there was so much going on. Hot take: I'll be surprised if Ocon doesn't get his butt kicked by FI management despite his 6th place, it was a poor move on Perez and probably cost the team a decent shot at the podium.

When the news came through my only reaction was and still is:

This makes the wait until next year so interesting though.

Follow up from Sergio via The Guardian:

“When I read the comment I didn’t find it funny at all,” Pérez said. “I have decided to split with the brand because I am not in favour at all of the comment.

“They are very sorry and I am very sorry, too. I know the owners and they have done incredibly well and the relationship was going to be very successful. But my country and people come first and I want to support them and won’t let anyone make fun of my country.”

Difficult not to respect him over this. These troubled times aren't a joking matter.

Sergio Perez has declared via twitter that he'll be breaking off his agreement with sunglasses brand Hawker after a tweet suggested Mexicans could use their glasses to "hide their crying eyes while building the wall".

"Really bad comment, today I am breaking my relationship with @HawkersMX.

I will never let anyone make fun of my country."

Hawkers had released their 1st pair of Perez-branded glasses just last week.

Just woke up to learn of Vettel's penalty, such a weird series of shenanigans post race. Guess cant really say without having a look at the telemetery but this one seems dangerously in range of the "let them race or don't" debate/sentiment.

Almost certainly at some point, will wait to see what games & features it'll have when. Could be at launch if it really excels as a portable gaming device.
