This WAS a review of the 2020 Belgian Grand Prix. The last 5 minutes though were hijacked by the emergence of… Cuffing Season. Listen in, if you dare. Editor’s Note: I haven’t laughed this hard since the Shag, Marry, Kill segment.
In F1, Lewis Hamilton wins from pole… again. A sweet tribute to Chadwick, though. The race’s only major highlights – Antonio Giovinazzi hits inside wall, collects George Russell with a loose wheel, another W for the Halo. It was a catastrophic Ferrari weekend, neither car scores points after a double Q2 elimination, ALL Ferrari powered cars towards the back. However, Daniel Ricciardo almost steals a podium, with Pierre Gasly on fire (dunked Perez through the floor at Raidillon!) We also noticed that Bottas was told not to push against his teammate. Are we done here already?
In F2, there were loving tributes to Anthoine Hubert, a year on from his tragic passing. Yuki Tsunoda and Nikita Mazepin go to war in Feature Race with Mazepin winning… but he gets a 5 second time penalty for repeatedly forcing Tsunoda off track. Mazepin loses his shit, runs into P2 board and nearly hits Yuki, gets suspended 5 place grid penalty. MP Motorsport also collided as Nobu hits Drugovich’s rear.
In the Sprint Race, Tsunoda takes out Illot in Sprint Race, gets 5-second penalty and finishes 9th. Nissany and Ticktum collide at Les Combes, Nissany smashes into wall, Ticktum gets a crippled car and falls to 10th. Shwartzman wins via parting of the leaders, Mick Schumacher 2nd, Zhoutime 3rd, Vips through the Pits takes 11th. Also, Dre dunks on Peter Windsor. #BringBackDavide
And in F3, Zendeli avenges (See what I did there?) Silverstone and takes 1st win in Race 1 from Pourchaire and Beckmann, while Logan Sargeant wins battle with teammate Zesti Vesti to take Race 2 and Championship Lead, Lawson 3rd over Smolyar.
And finally, Cuffing Season.
