A Gravel Trap museum review!

Evening everyone :deletraz: It's time for another occasional tourism-related Gravel Trap, where Klon has very kindly reviewed the Automuseum Prototyp in Hambug, a museum which may have the only surviving example of the rejectful 1991 Porsche F1 engine! Read it right here today! Trip into the Gravel ...

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Britain 2024

1. Lewis Hamilton. What a way to snap the winless streak. If I were him I'd be reconsidering that Ferrari contract ASAP.

2. Lance Stroll. Outperformed Alonso all weekend.

Reject of the Race - Britain 2024

1. McLaren. Complete strategic incompetence cost the win for both Norris and Piastri.

2. Whoever stopped for inters the first time round. Their races were destroyed within laps.

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Austria 2024

2. The battle for the lead. Yes it ended in tears, but an actual battle for the lead? In Formula 1? I thought that was illegal :pantano:

Reject of the Race - Austria 2024

1. Max Verstappen. Complete and utter head loss, not what we've come to expect at all. Even before the inevitable contact he was all over the place with constant reactive moves against Norris.

2. Fernando Alonso. Retire old man.

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Imola 2024

1. Takuma Sato. The guy's pushing 50 and he still continues to amaze us. Putting a Rahal car into the Fast 12 is one hell of an achievement.

2. Rinus VeeKay. The sheer size of this bloke's grapefruits to get his car into the Fast 12 having crashed a couple of hours earlier!

1. Alex Albon/Williams. Dangerous and ultimately silly.

2. Fernando Alonso. This geniuenly felt like the first weekend ever where you could argue Alonso's age was a factor against him. The guy's damn near superhuman but Old Father Time still remains undefeated.

Reject of the Race - Abou Diaby 2023

1. 2023 Abou Diaby Grand Prix. 58 tedious laps to wrap up a season so awful it makes 2002 and 2004 look like the good old days of F1. It's exactly what Liberty Media and the FIA deserve.

2. Jorge Martin. A ridiculous choke at Valencia.
