    Cheers @Shimmy. It just feels like this has the potential for another good weekend, either as a race or in the racing behind Hamilton 10 seconds further up the road.

    I dunno, thanks to the Tilke-ness of most of the tracks that have been added to the calendar in recent years I find the Hungaroring is actually one of the better tracks that F1 goes to. Certainly when it's a dull race it's no worse than many others. And occasionally F1 will screw up and accidentally put on a decent show here.

    I suspect Hamilton will be on a charge this weekend.

    FP2 is boring. Sainz had a squeeky bum moment, but nobody going out now as it's raining.
    Edit: A few out on inters.

    No point in risking the car, weekend looks dry.

    F2 qualifying, 2 minutes in and the session was red flagged as in the damp, someone spun and stalled on the track.

    This could be a fun session.

    I wonder if they offered driver/team points for top 10 (or maybe 6?) positions in practice sessions it would encourage a bit more action.

    Tactically it would add various angles for the teams to cover off, as well as reliability. For example, would top teams risk a crash to bag thr points or do they concede and let midfield teams get some much needed points?

    I will probably get shot down for such a suggestion, but most weekends, FP just isnt worth watching.

    It isn't worth watching because of ridiculous reliability rules. Drop those, and it works again.

    But, ultimately, FP should be there for the teams more than the fans.

    Since when has practice meant to be competitive or a spectacle? It’s for the teams primarily.

    I’d be happy if they got rid of grid penalties tbh.

    Bin the car and get punished for replacing components? Nah.

    Agreed. Take away constructors points, but don’t ruin the show by moving the drivers out of position.

    Traditionally yes. I was talking more of a potential way to make the weekend a bit more exciting for the fans too, and add deeper tactical elements to the weekend overall.

    Lets face it, most f1 races are pretty dull. So teams spending practice sessions setting up would be great if we had a spectacle every race on a sunday. We dont get that.

    So its mostly several days of dull. It doesent do anything to excite fans, attract new audiences or raise the profile of F1.
