    Porsche has been absent from F1 for way too long. The McLaren-Porsche TAG turbos of the mid 80's were pretty cool cars - 1.5 liter twin-turbo putting out 1100 hp on the dyno. I'd love to see Porsche back in the mix.

    I am a complete Audi/Porsche fanboy. I cannot wait for their return. Porsche did well in the early to mid-80's, then everyone figured it out and they got run out of F1 with their tail between their legs. All the years of big cylinder cars kept them out, but with this new 6 cylinder hybrid requirement, it's their wheelhouse moment. Porsche/Audi can flat develop hybrid 6s, so I am excited to see what they can do, and with whom. I don't know if they plan to go full ground up ownership like Mercedes, or the engine builder route like Honda/RedBull. I secretly hope it's engine builder route and they team with Haas so I can cheer for Gunther and Porsche together. That is boner inducing to me.
    You want Gunther running your favorite marque's F1 team. You are DEFINITELY a Husky fan!...
    It takes years to properly adapt to getting kicked in the balls, but once you get there, it's really all you want. I just love Gunther. I can't help but root for the goofy bastard. Can you imagine Haas good? Would also be great for an American team to finally do something in F1. And they have Schumacher Jr. Yeah, if Porsche/Audi come in Gunther probably gets fired tbh, but it's fun to dream. Reality might be P/A just do their own team from the ground up like Merc and Ferrari. I'm okay with either, but would slightly prefer the engine builder route so they don't get embarrassed for three seasons figuring shit out.
    Not with Gunther running the team!... I love the shit out of that guy, too, but the impression I get from him (and I'll admit that all I know of him is what I've seen on Drive to Survive) is that he's not the brightest F1 team boss, to put it as politely as possible.
    Yeah, he has seemed to me like a bit of a bumbling buffoon, but hysterical. He is basically what would happen if Peter Sellers had ever run an F1 team.

    In today's sprint race, LeClerc got the jump on Verstappen at the start, but winds up without enough tire to protect himself in the closing laps of the sprint. Max wins the sprint, with LeClerc second, and Perez bringing home 3rd in the other Red Bull.

    Magnussen brings home another championship point for Gunther and the Haas team by finishing 8th.

    The Ferraris looked pretty good today, and so did the Red Bull cars. Hard saying how pit strategy will come into play in the race tomorrow, but it's going to.

    Verstappen steps right back into the WDC with a strong finish in Italy - bringing him to within 27 points of Charles LeClerc for the lead in the WDC. Perez finished 2nd and Lando Norris 3rd, with LeClerc back in 6th place.

    Next up - Miami - May 6-8.

    After another win in Spain, Verstappen takes the lead in the WDC by four points headed to Monaco for the Grand Prix of Monte Carlo.

    Hamilton put in a great effort at the Spanish GP in the Mercedes, who look like they may have sorted some things out with their problematic car.

    The Memorial Day weekend is always a great spectacle in motor racing.
