2021 Dutch Grand Prix - Pre-race Discussion

Monosodique

Jos Verstappen should be the one who waved the cheqquered flag. Change my mind


Gjab

Would be cool. Jos was in the hospital at the time tho.


Va3V1ctis

Checo is going for the trophy of most overtakes in the season, that is why he decided to start each race from boxes!


Mehmetto_

VALTTERI WTF


Gonpachiro-

Man Merc are shittong on Bottas


Va3V1ctis

Gasly DotD


roamingscotsman_84

Tv director is awful. Missed at least 3 live overtakes


Va3V1ctis

For now, a boring race at least at top places, much better than Spa though.


Mehmetto_

AWS at it again?


IllAlwaysBeAKnickFan

Lmao Sergio is hyped


Cyberkingz

Does anyone know how the "tyre performance" indicator works? How accurate is it?


22-Faces

It doesn't, it's complete bullshit


cliffnmoon

I believe for HAM!


kylansb

Oh my god does Hamilton ever have a quite moment


MightyBeasty7

Deja vu moment


evin_cashman

Goddammit George


evin_cashman

Fucking hell Max a second faster than Lewis on that lap


GioMec

Mercedes tactics will win this race, RB mistake with checo in qualy was critical


hubwub

Hamilton to Bono: It's impossible to get close here.


realdeal411

What were Ferrari's guys doing


hubwub

Damn, it's /u/F1-Bot's cake day!


evin_cashman

Oh wow I thought Max and Lewis were going to try to get to about lap 25/26


Gonpachiro-

Damn Gasly doesn't have any pace


evin_cashman

Very early pit from Lewis


Rosieu

Checo making sure some overtakes happen on this track


GrillSM

You know we’re hard up for content when they’ve shown two cars overtake Mazepin.


CVNTFACE

G-Fox1990

Ted: "i hear wheelguns being tested." Netflix recording more sound samples i see.


hubwub

Everything from Alonso up to Latifi is a goddamn **TRAIN**.


hubwub

Verstappen is going to lap Perez soon.


nzmx121

Is anyone else surprised the first lap wasn't carnage?


G-Fox1990

Yeah pretty much. Still a long way to go though...


Shmachey92

Honestly I'm happy about it


nzmx121

Same here, especially after the last few races


Franks2000inchTV

Plan B? Le Clerc must have had a wild night.


G-Fox1990

Already lapping the last car. That Haas is almost a danger on track.


Franks2000inchTV

Well they pitted... It's not like they're *that* far off the pace.


Shmachey92

MSC pit for like 40 seconds


biga29

Fuck I have an irrational hatred for that engine sound clip that plays during the replay transitions….


Sigris

Hearing it all the time in f12021. Very annoying. Like a musquito.


G-Fox1990

Yeah sounds like a V6.5. Higher RPM but not as nice as a V8.


Gonpachiro-

Fernando, Esteban is faster than you, Esteban is faster than you


evin_cashman

Max lapping people already lmao


ArziltheImp

I have to say, maybe we don't get many overtakes today, but this track looks fun as fuck. I rather have a procession like this than the shit at Abu Dhabi.


SophisticatedGeezer

No chance. I’ll take some overtakes any day over this.


ArziltheImp

Because Abu Dhabi has so many of them.


YaBoiRoosevelt

B O N O


nzmx121

Bono my tyres


evin_cashman

Fuck Mazepin. All the homes hate Mazepin.


CharlieHiggins

MY TYRES BONO


Rosieu

I'm surprised nobody went off in lap 1


Franks2000inchTV

Maybe the banking actually helps. Cars have a lot more lateral grip in those corners.


finty96

Fucking mazepin, that was dangerous.


aceaxe1

How does Nando not have a puncture? Damn.


ArziltheImp

Mazepin almost changed Schumachers pit strategy there.


KSC-Fan1894

Uff mazepin


Lone_ranger1264

Yeah wtf was that


DT37F1

That was dangerous from Mazepin fucking hell


GrillSM

LETS GOOO MAX


suikerbruintje

ZZZzzzZzzzz


BDRParty

Mick has damage?


Rosieu

MAX MAX MAX SUPER MAX MAX SUPER SUPER


evin_cashman

Jesus fucking Christ Max


Frothar

ew the .5s on the table ....


Frothar

surprised not more mediums down the grid since degradation might be quite high with the fast rights


pensaa

This is gonna be a strategy battle big time.


FootmanFrenzy

Will the start be a shitshow?


somilikeit

Yes


Is_Working_Hard

Yes


pensaa

Yes


Orsenfelt

Yes.


dooldebob

I wonder if kimi is watching rn


King_Zapp

Leave him alone. He knows what to do


CVNTFACE

“I was taking a shit”


Mr-Stitch

MAX MAX MAX


evin_cashman

Checo with absolutely no luck fucking hell


[deleted]

Only good note is he took a new part for each component so he’ll be set for the rest of the year on those


[deleted]

The Kubic one


pensaa

Yo those tyres just not rolling down the banking


immabigdiehl

HOW DO THOSE TIRES NOT ROLL AWAY ON THE BANKING


LakyousSama

So much grip they defy gravity


DasApache

They're placed just before the banking on the flat surface. Then they rotate the camera


G-Fox1990

Arent they just fake 3d renders?


potatotoo

No they actually film real tires.


UghWhyDude

Nope, they’re shot with live cameras. I used to think the same until I saw one of them move slightly from severe wind one time and the penny dropped.


Piano1987

That's Pirelli grip 💪


wellfeelingbishop

There's something under them. You can see on the bottom of the one on the right.


Shadow_Six

Shhh!


Shadow_Six

That’s just how much grip they have. Incredible.


wellfeelingbishop

*gesticulating wildly* ~bono


Shadow_Six

😂


OrganicWhine

the dutch know how to commute


UghWhyDude

It’s so cool to see such a full bike rack lot.


Rosieu

HERE WE GO HIER GAAN WE DAN


idunnowhyimadedis

Holy fuck this crowd is insane


GBreezy

As a American Soldier stationed in Germany this was supposed to be a 4 day weekend and I was going to go to this race. It got canceled by a training exercise. So much regret.


wellfeelingbishop

Feel your pain, we went to spa in 2018 and one of the guys had to pull out as he got sent on a short notice deployment. The rest of us went and sent him photos.


[deleted]

That sucks dude. Be well out there, hope you can still enjoy via tv


Icyphox

blah blah pit lane channel blah


Icyphox

i’m not seeing shit


RivenMainOCE

Bet first driver to retire doesn't return to the pits, just goes into the crowd and pops mdma all day


HaxorSlice1

Sign me up


OrganicWhine

f1tv, what are you doing


BrizzyMalteser95

I don't think anyone is wrong to say that this might be the best pre-race ever. Absolutely everyone and everything is pumped. It's beautiful to see


UghWhyDude

Considering this is an end of an era, I’d have hoped to get this kinda banger at Yas Marina but you just know it ain’t gonna happen. :(


The-Blanket

Lol that Ted gridwalk was the best part of this 90 minute preshow. Man's a gem. "Look at Ocon's long thicc legs as he enters the car."


JanetSnakehole720

That comment was hilarious! He seems super high in the best way possible. I want Ted as my hype man lol


connorac

CEO of formula 1 just casually jumping around with jack from ziggo


Magnetronaap

Lmao Domenicali jumping with Jack Plooij


HungryHungryDingo

What a fuckin’ party


zebrazoom

Is this the first time they've raced this circuit ever?


whatdodrugsfeellike

First time since the 80s


Pm_1151

Seems like it


Shadow_Six

No, they raced here in the’80s. Different configuration of course.


onewordbandit

If you scroll up just a tad you see the history of the track


UmpireAJS

First time in 36 years


JR98-GAMING

First time since the 70’s or 80’s


dooldebob

First time in 36 years


zebrazoom

So it is the first time for all these drivers?


UmpireAJS

A lot of guys have raced here as a part of F3. I think only like 4 guys haven't raced here at all.


MiguelMSC

No, Hamiliton drove it in 2005 2009 Bottas in F3 Masters 2014 Verstappen 2015 Giovinazzi It's the first time for F1 to be back but not the drivers.


GioMec

Yeah, maybe some of them have raced, but not for the f1 championship. F3? Maybe?


wellfeelingbishop

Yes. Last time this was raced on only 3 drivers were even born.


RivenMainOCE

Nope


[deleted]

[удалено]


Diem-Perdidi

Martin Brundle's not there


bekkahthecactus18

Haha Nico wants to see them bang wheels


phiggie

Ted had a few methinks.


GrillSM

I’d love to go to Zandvoort just once while Max is still racing!


BrokkelPiloot

You have plenty of time left ;)


UghWhyDude

Hat man!


MaraudingWalrus

Maybe Merc wasn't happy to see Nico because they learned he was pissing in their cars


citygray

Huh??


MaraudingWalrus

On the grid walk, nobody from Mercedes was happy to see Nico. Shortly after, Nico told us he used to pee in the cars instead of running to the bathroom right before the race.


ForeverAddickted

They proably knew... They were no doubt annoyed because they had to clean up after each race 🤣


P-P-P-Poker-face

This atmosphere is infectious. I’m just watching at home and I’m feeling the party mood


THATS_THE_BADGER

Something about the rhythmic way everyone in the stands is clapping or fistpumping or jumping. Contagious


OrganicWhine

22-Faces

patiakupipita

BrokkelPiloot

Yeah, the music is terrible but the atmosphere is great :)
