Daaang Mercedes qualified 1 and 2, 0.704s faster than Ferrari at 3. The rest of the field has lot of work to do if they want to be competitive this season and prevent Mercedes from running away with the championship again.

Oh and how the mighty have fallen; Williams qualified in the back.


anyhooo... weeeee less that 2 hours till the flag drops :)

The sound these full electric race cars make takes some getting used to, but it's not bad..
heh it's like Super Mario Kart how the cars have to drive over power ups on the road to get more speed.

The only race I like to watch
What is up with this? twice the usual number of horses killed at this track. Statistical anomaly or system failure?

23rd horse dies Santa Anita racetrack, two days after racing resumed - March 31, 2019
Park officials said they were working with state regulators to determine if there was anything that could have been done "to prevent today’s tragedy."

Another racehorse died Sunday at California’s Santa Anita Park, raising the death toll there to 23 since Christmas, officials said. The fatal injury came two days after racing resumed at the thoroughbred track with new rules aimed at improving horse safety. The horse that died in Sunday’s race, Arms Runner, suffered a fatal injury after colliding with another horse at a dirt crossing, park officials said in a statement.

Mick Schumacher took to the circuit in a Formula 1 car for the first time on Tuesday and thoroughly "enjoyed" the experience.

Son of racing legend and seven time F1 champion Michael Schumacher, the 20-year-old clocked the second fastest time at the official Bahrain testing event behind Red Bull's Max Verstappen. Schumacher was signed by the Ferrari Development Academy earlier this year and appeared comfortable performing in the famous red car.
