Race 3: Belgium
Ascari headed an all-Ferrari front row, with teammates Farina and Taruffi in second and third, respectively. The Gordinis of Manzon and Behra made up row two, while the third row consisted of Hawthorn, Ken Wharton (in a Frazer-Nash), and Frère, who was the highest qualifier of the five Belgian drivers on the grid.
Taruffi started badly in the rain, dropping to ninth by the end of the first lap, while Behra overhauled the two leading Ferraris to take the lead of the race. Moss also started well, before his car broke down half way through the first lap. Behra's lead was short-lived, as both Ascari and Farina overtook him on the second lap, subsequently holding first and second for the remainder of the race. Behra dropped to fourth when the recovering Taruffi passed him on lap 13. On the following lap Taruffi spun at Malmédy and Behra hit him, causing both to retire. Manzon overtook Hawthorn to assume what was now third place. Despite suffering from fuel leakage problems, Hawthorn was able to maintain fourth place until the end of the race. His fellow debutant Paul Frère also finished in the points, in fifth.
Ascari's win (with fastest lap), and Taruffi's retirement, meant that the two now shared the lead of the Championship, on nine points each. Troy Ruttman was in third, while Farina's second-place finish raised him to fourth in the standings, three points adrift of the joint Championship leaders.
Race 1: Switzerland
With the withdrawal of Alfa Romeo from the World Championship, Ferrari were left as the sole competitive team under the existing regulations. It was therefore decided to run the Championship to Formula Two regulations.
Polesitter Farina led the race until his car broke down. His Ferrari teammate assumed the lead, which he held for the remainder of the race. Moss was impressively running in third place in the early stages, behind Farina and Taruffi, before he had to stop. The main battle was between Behra and Simon, for second place (once Farina had retired). When Behra had to stop, due to his exhaust pipe having fallen off, Farina, who had taken over Simon's car, assumed second place. However, further problems meant that he once again had to retire, on lap 51, handing second to local driver Rudi Fischer. The Swiss driver took his first Championship podium, being the only driver not to be lapped by Taruffi, who took his first (and only) World Championship race victory. Behra completed the podium, taking third on debut, while Ken Wharton (fourth) and Alan Brown (fifth) took the first points finishes for Frazer Nash and Cooper, respectively.

• • • • • #F1 Há exatos 13 anos, o suíço Gianclaudio Giuseppe Regazzoni perdia a vida em um acidente automobilístico em Parma, na Itália. Ele tinha 67 anos. Clay, como ficou mundialmente conhecido, correu na Fórmula 1 entre 1970 e 1980. Em 132 GPs, obteve cinco vitórias na categoria máxima do automobilismo. Seu auge ocorreu em 1974, quando sagrou-se vice-campeão. Como tributo, eis Regazzoni, com Williams, no GP de Mônaco de 1979. O suíço deu um show à parte no Principado. Após largar em 16°, Rega foi superando um a um até alcançar o segundo lugar. Clay chegou a pressionar Jody Scheckter (Ferrari), mas o sul-africano ficou com a vitória, com apenas 0s4 de vantagem sobre o suíço. Carlos Reutemann (Lotus) completou o pódio.
Exactly 13 years ago, Clay Regazzoni died in a car accident at Parma, Italy. The Swiss driver raced in F1 between 1970 and 1980, obtaining 5 wins. His best season was in 1974 - with a Ferrari, Clay was runner-up. As a tribute, an image of Regazzoni, with a Williams' car, during the 1979 Monaco GP. Clay started in 16th place and achieved an amazing 2nd place, only 0s4 behind Jody Scheckter (Ferrari), winner at the Principality. Carlos Reutemann (Lotus) finished in 3rd.

It’s a snowy, cold day here. Here’s a throw back to a snowy day last year. How is it where you are?
IV Grand Prix Warmii i Mazur w Olsztynie był dla mnie pierwszym startem w sezonie po prawie 3-miesięcznej kontuzji. Mimo że nie miałem jak się przygotować w półtora tygodnia starty uważam za udane 👑 Dziękuję wszystkim, którzy w jakiś sposób mnie wspierają ❤️

The journey from the minute @lewishamilton became 6 time World Champion!
Ps. Thanks @luke_wk for picking me up at the start of the run so my 5ft 2 self didn’t get run over. And for putting me on your shoulders for 5 mins straight so I could see :)
Was worth the duel asthma attack post run too.
Q: Are the new rules an advantage for you from the 2021 season? 18-inch tires, heavier but slower cars?
Seb:I hope the cars don't slow down. If, however, the goals of better overtaking are achieved, you are willing to accept a loss of three to four seconds. Otherwise no then it would be a disappointment. ——————————————————————————— #Interview

Q: You told your friend Bernie Ecclestone on his farm in Brazil that you tried vegan. Are you even on the trail of Lewis Hamilton?
Seb: No, the experiment was already in 2018. The experiment lasted around six weeks and I learned a lot from it. It is up to you how and what you eat. I have dealt intensively with the topic and there is no proper diet because everyone is different, every body reacts differently. What I don't like is a judgment that is too quick. They say that everything is right and that everything is wrong. What has changed for me: I now eat less meat and pay more attention to the quality of the products, which is relatively easy in Switzerland. In addition, more vegetables are now on the plate. ——————————————————————————— #Interview
After the first Formula 1 season with a new engine partner, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner raves about Honda and praises Verstappen’s performance as a driver - Max Verstappen is Red Bull's big hope for the title for 2020. This year the Dutchman drove his most consistent season so far: in 15 of 21 Formula 1 races he got a place in the top 4, nine times on the podium, three of them as Winner. In the end, he secured third place in the World Cup with 278 points. "Yes, I think it was Max 'best year in Formula 1," confirms Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. At the same time, he points out that it was actually a transition year for the team in view of the engine change. "The partnership with Honda worked extremely well from the first race, the podium in Melbourne." With every update that was introduced there was an improvement, Horner appreciates and praises the reliability: "In Azerbaijan we only had one mechanical DNF this year, and with each development stage we came closer and closer to the pace. The three poles Positions and three wins are a testament to that. " Even though the pole in Mexico was lost due to a subsequent penalty, a total of nine podium finishes this year are "a really impressive achievement," says the Red Bull team boss. Although it was not enough for the five victories targeted by Helmut Marko, his expectations were exceeded, Horner says. "The relationship with Honda was fantastic in many ways, the reliability, the performance increase of the engine ... It was an absolute highlight. The way Max drove was also very, very positive." Even the driver change from Pierre Gasly to Alexander Albon in the middle of the season survived unscathed I think that was the right thing, "says Horner. After all, with one exception, Albon was consistently in the top 6 in the second half of the season." Alex has earned his place in the car for next year. And thanks to a very promising result in Abu Dhabi (P2 and P6), we are going into the winter with a lot of motivation. " In view of the stable rules for the coming season, he is optimistic about the 2020 balance of power. "Hopefully we can be the challenger next year. Mercedes has had another very strong year
Q: Have you never seriously considered withdrawing from Formula 1?
Seb: Not specifically. But after more than twelve years, you will surely think about what comes next. It is not good to go through life without a plan. ——————————————————————————— #Interview
ANGELA CONSOLES LEWIS
This is one of my favourite photos from the past year. I shot it as Lewis exited the FIA garage after a non-top 3 finish in the German Grand Prix.
It’s not often he doesn’t make the podium but Angela was there to greet him and guide back to the motorhome with her hand in the small of his back.
A reminder that you’ll find all of my F1 videos on YouTube. At present I’m posting three videos a week and you can access them for free, PLUS next week I’ll be hosting a YouTube live streaming session where you’ll be invited to ask as many questions as you wish. I’ll post details early next week - I do hope you’ll join me.
