I'm just a very casual observer of F1, though understand a few fits here are more landed of the the series.

What are your thoughts on the driver protection devices?

Halo v aero screen.

Aero looks better to me, and it seems the Ferrari sysyem could impede a drivers vision.

Shocker, Max Verstappen promoted to Red Bull with immediate effect:

F1 News - F1 Spanish GP: Verstappen in shock immediate move to Red Bull

Kvyat 'Demoted' to Torro Rosso.

F1 News - F1 Spanish GP: Kvyat 'demoted' to Toro Rosso for season

I'm guesing this is after the Russia crash.

I didn't expect them to do this during the season, but I was thinking Kvyat was the most likely to get punted out of RBR. He has had some good races here and there, but overall has been too inconsistent, and while they deny it, the Vettel incident might have been the deal sealer.

Verstappen has been on a lot of teams's radar, I wounder if this move had something to do with preventing him from joining another team

I read he had a clause in his contract that if he didn't get a 'Works' Red Bull in his 3rd season he was a free agent.

I personally think the kid is a little over hyped. Time will tell but remember all the fuss that was made over Kvyat in his first season....

Good for Max! And glad to see Kimi on the podium. Suppose the tension in the Mercedes garage is similar to the Yamaha garage?

I laughed hard when I heard the Mercedes has crashed, I laughed even more when I saw it. They are like children.

Call me skeptical, but once RBR figured out they could win that race, I think they changed strategy to try and get Verstappen into the lead. It's nearly impossible to pass around that circuit and being in the lead is easy to hold onto. I just find it too coincidental that the first time RBR has a chance of winning a race, Verstappen wins. Meh, call me an old man yelling at a cloud, but his win outlines why F1 is a colossal joke. In no other era would he have even gotten to the grid at 17, let alone won at 18 because it took awhile to truly acclimate to the cars. Driving to deltas isn't exactly like driving to the limit.

Hamilton was completely at fault for that crash, he drove into a disappearing gap and refused to back off for no apparent reason. Total moron. I wasn't thrilled it took Rosberg out because that means he didn't score points either. But Hamilton scoring no points is always a lovely thing.
