Central Asian Grand Prix thread

A new track is always exciting. It's unique, with a touch of Adelaide. Lots of criticism from the elder drivers. Only 10 cars finished the GP2 feature race on Saturday. It should be an interesting weekend, let's hope, for the right reasons. Rosberg needs to stop the rot to avoid his 9 point lead being completely overturned, and smarting from turn 2 in Montreal, he'll be taking no prisoners. With a 2.1km-long straight, will the Mercedes powered cars dominate? Or will Ferrari's recent upgrade keep them in with a shout. From Friday, the former appears more likely.

Red Bull have cost Ricciardo three times today. First by not being stronger with Verstappen who was clearly slowing him down. Second by leaving him out a lap too long in the first stint, trapping him behind Kimi. Third by forgetting how to put a wheel on a car in the second stop.

Changes made to make Baku track more narrow, pit-lane looks a right challenge amongst above corners.
Very little margin for error.
I'll be surprised If we don't see at least 2 crashes.

Hamilton ran Rosberg wide like in Austin last year. He had the line, but a bit pushy! No prisoners I guess since Barcelona!

Would love to see a Williams victory this weekend, for something different.

Why do Mercedes always come up with the same car problem

Nico did not have the same problem
