On that note, as much as I love Kimi (we all do), I kinda hope he calls it so we can see another rising star get a chance.

Esteban Ocon has signed a 3-year extension for Alpine. Finally we can put those ridiculous Gasly rumors to rest. (I love Gasly, but him going to Alpine never felt right to me.)

Also former F1 driver Kevin Magnussen will make his IndyCar debut this weekend, subbing for Felix Rosenqvist who was injured in Saturday’s race at Detroit.

French driver for a French team. Makes too much sense not to keep that going.

Romain Grosjean gives the AlphaTauri a virtual lap of Paul Ricard. As boring as the race usually is, it does look fun to drive.

In terms of upcoming news, the first trial for Sprint Race Qualifying will be next weekend at the British Grand Prix.

I don't feel like it's going to work out well, but it might be worth a shot. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the reminder. I’ve had trouble finding time to watch qualifying this year, but given the different format, this week I’ll have to find a way.

I watched the Indy Qualifiers a few weeks back at Road America, my first visit to the track. That was so much fun

Been to countless Indy 500s but never to a road course race. Really would like to see one sometime.
