re "Marc Marquez will continue to hold the outright record as the youngest world championship debut rider when he contested the 125cc 2008 Portuguese Grand Prix aged 15 years and 56 days." Easily disprovable, for example Jorge Lorenzo started the 2002 Spanish GP race on 5 May 2002, the day after turning 15.
It's good he's got a ride without crowd funding, hardly think Forward would have been his first choice though.
I agree, F1 won't be a poorer place without him or indeed any driver. The sport must always be bigger than the participant. Remember this guy has been paid a ludicrous amount of money to lose. Perez shoots himself in the foot when he mourns Alonso moving on by stating what we all know, the car is now king and as long as the driver can maintain a constant body temerature he will win or lose accordingly. The great, as opposed to good drivers can make the most of what they've got, Hamilton has proved he has the ability to bring the car home in the best position he can on the day. As the late, great Frank Gardner observed of the equally late, great Jim Clark, "He could make a leaky sack of wet coal perform by simply picking the thing up and carrying it!".
Daft weather summary. Just noticed it lists both Sunday and Monday as being the 19th but Sunday is expected to be sketchy.
We are broadly in agreement on this one I think Codger!
It will interesting with the possibility of mixed conditions, wet, and a flag-to-flag race.
