What we're about

In our humble opinion, Formula 1 is the ultimate form of motorsport. 20 of the world's best drivers line up on the starting grid for each race, and when the lights go out, it's a roar like nothing you've ever heard. F1 is a global phenomenon, so we can't attend every race (even attending one is a challenge), but we can watch race coverage on ESPN and still get the thrills of first-corner clashes, daredevil slipstream passes, engines on the limit, and lightning-fast pit stops. Nothing really puts you on the edge of your seat like 20 cars flying down to the first turn all at once, and there's no better way to experience it than to share it with a crowd full of fans, all screaming in unison.

That's the idea behind the Triangle Formula 1 Meetup: we're just fans in the stands, only we know each other on a first-name basis, and we all have stories to share with one another.

Whether you've been following Formula 1 since you were a kid, or are new to the sport and just want to see what it's all about, please join us! We'll be excited to meet you!

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAN PREMIO DE ESPAÑA 2022

Needs a location

## The inaugural FORMULA 1 CRYPTO.COM MIAMI GRAND PRIX 2022 both did and did not disappoint. The atmosphere around the track was pure Miami excess but the action on the track was a mixed bag. The combination of extremely long straights with one intentionally diabolical technical bit meant that the teams had to compromise their set-ups one way or another. The Ferraris were overall faster over one lap but the Red Bulls leaned into their top speed advantage and, once he got past Charles, Max was never seriously challenged.

## Hamilton’s run of bad luck continued with another safety car at exactly the wrong time but the Mercedes showed its potential and came away with another good haul of points. On the other end of the luck spectrum, everything that could go Albon’s way did and he came away with another couple points for Williams. You have to think Latifi’s days are numbered.

## Bottas’ and the Alfa Romeo finished comfortably in the points ahead of the Alpines and McLarens which are, arguably, faster but still haven’t got their stuff together. By now, you’d think we would be on to McLaren’s “will they, won’t they” performance dance. But like Charlie Brown and Lucy, we always trust and they always pull the football out at the last moment.

## This week, we head to the track that all the teams are most familiar with, Barcelona. Most of them are bringing upgrades so there’s a very small chance we’ll see some upsets. I’m curious to see how the new cars are going to perform on the first track of the season which has not seen changes since the last time we raced there.

## The group will be back at The Goat in Durham. Hope to see you all there.
