Formula Feud is back and all new following the season opening Formula 1 race in Australia. After an amazing race, Brad and Brandon share their views on the headlines of the weekend. It is a miracle that Fernando Alonso was able to walk away from the horrific crash that he endured. This will surely put even more emphasis on a system for head protection to be built in but some people are torn on the what the best solution is.
Thankfully, after the Mclaren driver was safe, the race was able to continue. The two Ferrari’s were able to pass Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg on the opening lap but it seems like an error in strategy could have cost Sebastian Vettel his 4th win with the Scuderia. Ferrari also forfeited a fair amount of points when Kimi Raikkonen’s car lit on fire. It seems that the new tire regulations, as confusing as they are, might be able to offer the edge that some teams are missing. It will certainly be interesting to see how the strategies will play a part moving forward.
Further down the pack, Max Verstappen showed he was a true Formula 1 driver when he got caught behind his teammate and became frustrated to say the least. The critics call this lashing out a symptom of his youth but we all know that all the F1 drivers act the same way.
Unfortunately, not every event over the weekend was a success. The new qualifying system was a complete failure and it was scrapped the next day. It seems like Formula 1’s latest band aid was not the cure it was meant to be. The race was so fantastic though, so who cares?
