That was fantastic timing for Piastri & Prema.

Just got out before VSC / SC.

It’s a bit of a sorry state when the only British F2 driver is Ticktum - I’ve defended him in the past, but his last 2 seasons haven’t really shown him in the best light, personally or professionally - this is the weakest season of GP2 / F2 for British talent I can remember.
surprised/shame not to see Ilott

I saw it Ticktum tried to go from the outside to the inside right on the apex of the corner.
It was inevitably he’d be hit.
swooping across the track at turn one at the startlaugh

Did he have a date he wanted to get to?

That was always going to happen between Piastri and Ticktum.

Don't really see that as Ticktum's fault - he had half a car length and speed on Piastri, and Piastri wasn't even that close to the kerb, just tried to scare Ticktum off the apex.

Ticktum's driven good race today.

Ticktum can’t go near another car without hitting it

Another quality feature race. Shame for piastri. He was my tip for the title and he's looking good already.

Ticktum may be a tt with a temper but he's not actually a wreckless driver when his emotions aren't rattled. Wasn't ticktum's fault that one at all.

No, and doesn't credit the 6 or 7 quality overtaking moves in the last 10 laps, including the one that forced Piastri into a poor decision that 50% of the time would have seen both of them out.

Well the stewards said it was a racing incident, no further action against either driver.

yeah, I'm a paid up member of the have-a-pop-at-tantrum fan club but that was piastris calamity all day long, should have given the corner up as a lost cause. Still, first weekend in f2.

Even my mrs who's an Aussie and also loathes tantrum called it that way ffs.

No support races this week - at least no F2, F3 or W & nothing else being televised that I can see.

Next F2 race is Monaco.
F3 is Barcelona.
W-series is Paul Ricard.

It's a long wait for any support action.

Formula Regional Alpine is at Imola, with coverage free to air on Youtube (apparently).

Very good entry list, so the races should be worth a watch. Races times are 16:20 tomorrow and 11:15 Sunday (BST times)

Ruben's son, Eduardo Barrichello, is competing in this - first I've heard of him - be interesting to see how he goes.

First race on now, live on YouTube. This is what I think we used to call the European F3 Championship.
