F1 never sleeps. It’s a 750-mile journey from Portimao to Barcelona, yet here’s the scene at the Circuit de Catalunya less than 48 hours after the chequered. Williams already working on their cars #F1 #SpanishGP

Love the idea of Seb Vettel in an Aston Martin in 2021. He's more English than the English, in many ways, and he'll relish being back in a small, nimble team. As for Perez, he deserves to stay in #F1 . He Haas to stay in F1... #MugelloGP #F1

This from Mattia Binotto, boss of Ferrari. Bravo! “As we often say, we should leave the drivers free to fight, as overall this will be good for F1. So ‘bravo’ to Verstappen, he drove a fantastic race today as did Charles. There will be new opportunities for us in the future.”
