What would you do if you work in Munich and your boss tells you that you have an assignation in Dusseldorf and you have to drive there Saturday, Oct 10th. Additionally you've realized that the town of Nurburg is in the way between Munich and Dusseldorf, and also it was confirmed that German F1 GP is to be held in Nurburgring and they would allow the fans to come and enjoy the race. I got myself an early Christmas present.

Mask was mandatory but even if not I would have wear it. ~9 C and windy.

Highlights: sitting in tribune T4 in front of turn 1, allowed me to see Vettel losing and recovering the car, Kimi tossing Russel away, Bottas losing the first place, Hulckenberg getting in the points, and Hamilton tying Schumacher record 93 wins. I don't know how was on tv but the fight for the lower positions was on during the whole race, specially Kimi and Vettel.

Deeply touching to see Mick give Lewis his dad's Mercedes helmet.

No words.

I couldn't helped but to remember when he got Senna's helmet after tying the record for more pole positions, this could become a nice tradition, although both records are very hard to achieve.

...and drivers change helmet design every now and then

It will be easy to break Lewis' records once they start giving 50 points for win and so on, plus everyone within Top 20 gets points, and there will be 40 races per Year....

We don't look at F1 records with points anymore because they don't make sense for comparisons between decades.
But number of wins, number of pole, of hat-trick of championships and so on are still relevent.

For the number of races, you can have more races, but you can't have 40 a year. Or at least, not in a close future

I have plotted the number of races per year in F1 for you, we only have 5 more races per year compared to the 80s Smile

And I'll conclude by "records are meant to be broken" — Mark Spitz

There will always be a Schumacher, Vettel or Hamilton, a driver who will be considered number 1 and will have the full support of his team, although I recon that Hamilton's team mates have not been simple squires. They all have in common a team that notoriously dominate the grid, a formula that seems to be very easy to repeat

The steamroller Team Mercedes of the Hamilton-Bottas era is feeling a little more and more like the steamroller Team Mercedes of the Fangio-Moss era.
