The chemical reaction of the F1 Russian GP starts with “rain”. Whether it is the surprise of qualifying or the surprise at the end of the race, all the content of the previous dull game has been washed away. However, in addition to the chemical reaction of “Rain”, as outstanding newcomers gradually gain a foothold, this strong group of new-generation drivers is the “taste” of surprise that really changes the plot!
It’s another critical period when F1 starts to be sentimental and look forward to
In addition to the drastic changes in racing next year, the maturity of the new generation of “drivers” makes people look forward to next year’s exciting situation, but it will also quietly roll the prelude to the replacement of the driver generation! Everyone originally cast their eyes on Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. However, Lando Norris and George Russell also showed their applause strength this year. Together with Carlos Sainz who has adapted for a period of time, these people are on average in their twenties. The new blood directly shocked the author.
In the former F1 world, it was a rare gift to produce real super newcomers. And it only accumulates after many seasons. For example, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso, the son of Spain who set a precedent for skipping grades, will reappear Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton after many years. The birth of each strong player has a little time difference. Unexpectedly, after the current improvements, a more complete racing training system and talent mining of various teams, so that the current F1 battlefield, almost every year there are super newcomers born!
This not only allows fans and friends to feast their eyes, but also greatly enriches the competition and performance on the track. But this has also greatly compressed the fault tolerance of each driver, and quickly promoted the replacement time of the drivers on the field. This is a huge change in the ecology of F1 drivers today. Such a change has ruthlessly compressed the original excellent, but the age is around 30. The driver space, these drivers will not be the same as their predecessors teammates, have room for smooth righting, instead of being eliminated early or relegated. Whenever it comes to this period, the author will start to feel that “speed” is not necessarily the “crisis” of the rider, but years are a ruthless knife, and good newcomers are the hand that holds that knife.

Compared with the previous story of Benz dominating the Sochi circuit, this year due to the rain in qualifying, Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz, George Russell won the top three, and because of Max Verstappen, Valtteri Bottas replacement power unit must start from the last ( Although one of them may have been forced to change their tactics), coupled with a bunch of people who retire or accidentally get stuck in the back row, the start of the race is full of excitement! After all, the second turn of the track after the start, basically yellow flags every year!

Just when we thought Sainz would lose 1 or 2 positions, because the route just had space, In addition, Sainz ate Norris’ wake, but surpassed Norris, who had a good start, to take a temporary lead! And Lewis Hamilton, who started with Benz power, encountered a bad line squeeze, failed to take the position after the start, and instead fell to seventh.

Benz uses Valtteri Bottas to break after tactics fail
Benz, please don’t talk to fans around the world, Valtteri Bottas is not replacing the power unit to implement “tactics”, because it is a kind of disrespect to the audience. The author believes that most fans and friends can understand the strategy of Mercedes-Benz. After all, this is one of the ways to protect Lewis Hamilton from winning the annual driver’s championship, and it is also a tactic that the team should make.
