So the new season will start in March and Australia was planned as usual to be the opening track. Now it looks set to be cancelled. (March 21st)

I have heard via someone who lives in Australia that although Covid related, nothing to do with that per se. More due to the fact, they are not prepared to run it without spectators. It's a street circuit and they make millions from the fans and ticket prices.

I'm inclined to agree with that. The Covid Bubble teams have put in place seemed to work well, 3 drivers out of 20 catching a mild dose and 3 team staff...

It means that the Bahrain Grand Prix scheduled for 28 March now looks poised to become the 2021 season opener.

That's some strange garb Hamilton has got on, is that official Mercedes clothing?

 

Three race weekends in a row - great. Shame this track is so boring though - It makes it look worse with all the painted blue and red lines - It's hard to see the actual run of the track when close up.

Hamilton arrived for this weekend's French GP in a bright green and black ensemble

Hamilton paired his £905 Bottega Veneta boots with a green hoodie, black jacket and shorts

Bottas has got a 'new' chassis this weekend. Always planned apparently. It's Lewis chassis he has used  all season. I bet he wants it back rofl

@Cleoriff I don't think there is much in those times, I reckon Hamilton will be quick on Saturday.

No, it's not engine parts @jonsie 

They've just interviewed LH and he says the chassis feels no different. Not what he was saying over the radio....joy
