And on this general topic, there's an interesting piece at https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/45812129. All speculative ifs and buts, of course, but it's hardly much of a spoiler to say that it doesn't make very happy reading for Vettel and Ferrari fans.
Eye opening that Ferrari have dropped that many points! For me the turning point was the Germany/Hungary double header with Vettel binning it when leading in Germany and then Hungary a race that Ferrari should have won ending with a Hamilton win after a wet quali mixed the grid up. I think that was 40ish points in 2 races and Ferrari haven't really recovered since.
What are peoples thoughts on the new women only series that's starting next season? Aim is to give them more chance to reach F1 but I think it may do the exact opposite.
