Reject of the Race - Canada 2022

Post by Londoner »

1. Yuki Tsunoda. Embarrassing unforced error that'll crop up in "F1 Fail" compilations for years to come.

2. Haas. Started 5th and 6th, Mick's car died while Mags ended up plum dead last on an utterly ridiculous strategy.

Yuki Tsunoda -- Crew gave him an amazing stop, and 15 seconds later, he binned it.

McLaren -- shite.

So many choices:

Haas - Converting 5th and 6th into nothing.
McLaren - Double stack and hash both pitstops and completely uncompetitive.
Tsunoda - What are cold tires?

But my personal favourite from the day.
Ted Kravitz - "I'm on the edge of my seat and I'm standing up."

  1. McLaren, for throwing away a potential double points finish by forgetting how to double stack.
  2. Ted Kravitz and David Croft, for getting so high on copium in that last 10%, so much so that the former was giddy recalling why the Wall of Champions has its name, and the latter having a worse grasp of history than the average Ruscist or Republican.

Haas - Converted a third-row lockout into last and a DNF

Sky Sports F1 Commentary Team - Successfully turned an objectively quite interesting Grand Prix into a conversation about what sorts of books Ted Kravitz could write. Also the regular mistakes, consistent shitting on "DRS passes" even while the pictures on screen might be showing (a) a successful defensive move by Alex Albon or (b) a non-DRS pass by Zhou Guanyu.

Also the already nominated Yuki Tsunoda crash and McLaren double-stack

1. Haas - their trademark mid-season slump in full flow. 5th & 6th on the grid to 17th & DNF. How on Earth Magnussen finished several seconds behind Latifi is beyond me. The front wing problem was ancient history. He was 12th before the SC IIRC.

2. Yuki Tsunoda - it's one of the easiest pit exits here and he skated right off into the tires. Really?

HM: Sky F1 - I'm really done with their English humor commentary. Ted Kravitz needs to STFU.

Haas is my serious nomination. 5th & 6th into nothing is a feat only Haas can deliver. Magnussen finishing last is embarrasing mostly due to a questionable strategy and ruining his own race by being needlessly aggressive at the start and racing Hamilton into a corner where it was never going to work.

However I have to include a nomination for the The Sky Commentary Team I mean there's just no charm or enthusiasm in their commentary. The banter is dreadful, they trip over their words, frequently make mistakes, and fail to enhance the experience. Most of the time, I mute them just to shut them up. Its infuriating when you have a fairly decent race and the commentators just sound so bored. God I miss James Allen.

a huge amount of choices

Hm Haas- Going from 5th and 6th to a DNF and last place. For Once it wasn't Mick's fault so progress I suppose
HM Mclaren- Pitstop blunders and no pace again!!
HM Vettel- Not sure what he was doing all race including the formation lap!!

2nd- Sky Sports commentary team- God they were dreadful in the race- so many mistakes again and Kravitz was at his absolute worst. Missed Plenty of action and fudged facts all through the race. Very poor

1st- Yuki Tsunoda- Either a very foolish and stupid mistake or doing a piquet to help red bull out to keep his seat- Please all rise and Stand!!

Haas: I didn’t expect them to stay too high up after Saturday’s heroics but that was a dreadful collapse. What does Mick have to do to score points? K-Mag put on a horrific strategy. A day to forget and for a team who started so brightly to now being ahead of only Williams in the WCC is quite damming.

McLaren: What a crock of 💩. No pace, a dreadful double pit stop and no points. Could be down to 6th soon if they aren’t careful

Yuki Tsunoda/AlphaTauri: Textbook definition of cold tyres for Tsunoda’s crash. Not seen someone do that for 15 years. It capped off what was a pretty miserable weekend for the team who were too slow.

HM to Vettel’s strategy at that final SC

Reticent to nominate Haas as it was just a catalogue of misfortune rather than anything the team did. Thus...

1. Tsunoda - a desperately silly moment of brainfade.
2. McLaren - pitstops had the grace and decorum of a reversing dump truck.

1) Yuki Tsunoda: Embarrassing way to go out.

2) Haas: Good chances to get points instead squandered.

1. Tsunoda - a classic FAIL moment
2. Haas - Schumacher's car failure was one thing but Magnussen strategy was also bad, having not pitted for fresh set during late SC.

1. Yuki Tsunoda - Classic reject stuff. Amazing.

2. McLaren - Those were spicy pitstops indeed.

HM to the Sky F1 commentary. Just terrible all around. The banter was horrific and Kravitz and Croft in particular were in terrible shape. Croft forgetting Ocon won a race at some point was just complete :shock:

I'm just going to nominate one:

Yuki Tsunoda

We all know that at some point we'll see a glorious, genuine act of rejectdom unfold on our screens and today were were presented with a treat that will be a highlight in the GPR history books. God rest his soul, we can only imagine the reaction Murray Walker would have voiced on seeing Tsunoda bin it coming out of the pits. This is what the ROTR awars is all about, and there is no reason to consider any other candidate for the 2022 Canadian GP

I would go along with this nomination.

Seeing you all nominate the tools at Sky really makes me thank the maker I switched to the F1TV feed last year.

For my nomination it just has to be Haas. Ferrari P/U issues aside, how can you fudge up a weekend that bad? No they didn't truly "deserve" 5th and 6th in quali, but even with the conditions resetting to the mean on Sunday, they should have scored SOMETHING. Michael Andretti on line 1.....again.

I'm really surprised by the all the Sky nominations. The strongest elements of the broadcast (Brundle) are great and the weakest (everyone else I guess) are pretty much dead on the median for quality here in the US. Is the average sports announcer in the UK and Europe + everywhere else in the world just light-years ahead of the US? The amount of mistakes and inane babble that occurred in Canada was barely noticeable to me, especially compared to any other sports I've ever watched. I need someone to explain this to me.

Oh, and Yuki takes it for me. It may not have been the biggest "fail" of the weekend, but it was the most traditionally rejectful in the classical sense.
It's just unbelievable...that Formula 1 could be such a ridiculous melange of idiots.

I'm going to invoke my arbitrary rights and award the Reject of the Race nomination from Canada to Yuki Tsunoda, as any other winner would have brought shame upon the name of this very award. His exit out of the pits, however much one can blame "cold tyres", was the fault of only him, and his comedic headfirst punt into the wall nearly cost Verstappen the win when they all bunched together at the end! But really it's the sheer dumbness of it all that towers over all else. Well done, Yuki :pantano:
