Happy 100th birthday to the world’s oldest living #F1 driver, Kenneth McAlpine. Born into the McAlpine civil engineering giant, he started 7 GPs in the ’50s, for Connaught, which team he eventually financed. Pic: McAlpine in the Connaught-Lea-Francis A-Type, ’53 #GermanGP. https://t.co/k0yypNfqX2

A few thoughts on a driver who, due to perceptions on his very right to be in the sport, isn’t getting the credit he deserves. https://t.co/El0jYG02a2

Sent a few tweets earlier today to try and show the good in someone who had shown me love and support in my career. Their latest message shows a disappointing lack of contrition, awareness and humility. Feeling a bit deflated as a result. So apologies. For that. And this.

On this date in 1996, DJ Shadow's 'Endtroducing.....' LP was released in the UK. What's your favorite song from the album? https://t.co/ha13yapXKM

The single most influential album of my lifetime. Hard to pick one song Building Steam, Number Song and Midnight in a Perfect World obvious choices But Changeling is utterly staggering. https://t.co/QZ6ySzVuhN

Thing I love about being part of the Aramco Power Rankings is seeing the final averages and working out how my colleagues have scored racers. This week, I rated three drivers higher than the driver who ended up P1. https://t.co/scljQluhP0

A thread on this morning's Twitter playground. I regularly do voluntary assemblies in primary schools, teaching the kids about journalism, while also running workshops to write football match reports. The reason I do this is to help with their creative writing.

Mega thread. No matter your opinion of the paper for which he writes, he’s a good journo and a good egg. Today’s little moment of twitter poison has I think reminded us all of how and why we started and the advice and encouragement we received along the way. https://t.co/g4G6LUEaYA

Eurosport today launched the new Cube for our coverage of the US Open and we were thrilled to welcome number one seed @KaPliskova as our first-ever guest in the mixed-reality studio with @Babsschett after her first round win. https://t.co/MC5Wrk6g7i

After a good few weeks on the road, I'm only just seeing this for the first time. Incredible use of the available tech to create something unique. First question has always got to be why are we doing what we are doing and how can it be better? Love this. https://t.co/JBYUZ5AOJ2

The unseen brilliance and absurdity of a heroic last place. @eddstrawF1 explains the excellence of @RGrosjean's #TuscanGP - featuring a very broken car, endearing radio messages and some bold overtaking: https://t.co/ezKM2lqf3b

This is 👌 https://t.co/O8mjhem3Bh

Anyway, I like it. Always have. Really hope it sees the light of day and gets tried out. Might work, might not. Who knows. Variety is the spice of life etc.

It's not as complicated as it's being made out and it's nowhere near the anathema of competition some claim. Look back 2 races to Monza. Lewis was last on lap 29 and 7th at the flag 24 laps later. Imagine that kind of a run on Saturday, then his Grand Prix from 7th on the grid.

The only thing that would be reversed is championship positions. That would be done to create a grid for a sprint race, whose winner would receive only pole position. No points. No trophy. The finishing order of the qualifying sprint is the order of the grid for the GP itself.

Think it's maybe time we move away from "reverse grid" as an explanation for what's being proposed as it's confusing a few people.

This is how the grid would line up for a Qualifying race at Sochi 2020. 

The result of this sprint race would determine the grid for Sunday's GP. https://t.co/4uMfxktuMN

Ok @Nandi_Bushell....Round 2! Every superhero needs a theme song. Here’s one for you! Mad props to The Grohlettes for the background vocals. https://t.co/js9xBasbpw

Dave Grohl putting a large slice of pure unfiltered joy into 2020. This is wonderful. https://t.co/NZRaxcgjhq

On closer inspection, top 10 are together. Its P11 who has left the gap to the field ahead and may have been driving slowly. That was Russell...

After seeing the Sainz onboard a number of times, we have to be incredibly thankful for Halo. The absence of it in that incident doesn't bare thinking about.

And... it is VERY easy to mistake a small acceleration as ‘Go’ when you’re 10 cars deep. You can’t see that far ahead, so react to what’s in front of you. Nobody wants to miss the jump, and there are always natural fluctuations in pace in the bunch, even with a steady leader.

It's so hard to make it out, but I think Kvyat is slow on the straight. There's a visible gap between the top cars and the Alpha Tauri. Carlos is forced to slow behind him. Latifi is accelerating and dives out the way but Gio can't help collect the McLaren ahead = chaos.
