Watched qualifying for Bahrain.  Haven't watched any F1 stuff for quite a while and was use to Lewis Hamilton dominating everything so it was good to see Max Verstappen get the pole.  I have been so out of touch with F1 that I didn't even know who Verstappen was until I saw Ed and Greg42 mentioning him here on the board.  I think Fernado Alonzo is the only other name I recognized out of all the current drivers.

Question for F1 fans - I like the halo, and am fine with the look and definitely glad to see the additional protection it provides the driver, but when did they increase the wheelbase/hike up the back of F1 cars?  The cars look awkward to me, compared to how they looked the last time I watched. They kind of look like the 2 Seater that Mario drives before the Indy Car races.  I also don't like the shiny plastic looking sidewalls on the tires... I hope that look doesn't catch on for street cars!

As we get older, we resist change, but for me those cars just don't pin the cool meter like cars of the recent years.  There's probably some 20 year old out there that thinks this year's cars are the coolest ever (although I don't think they use the word "coolest" anymore.)  Maybe some of you F1 guys can provide some info on the changes.
