Nice of them to put all the rookies (and hulk) in the first slot.

u/Manuag_86 Michael Schumacher Mar 01 '23

Even the F1 is pushing the "this rookie is going places" meme when it comes to Alonso.

109

u/Alfus 💥 LE 🅿️LAN Mar 01 '23

That Alonso guy, I think that he would be ROTY this season!

20

u/Muhala69 Pirelli Hard Mar 01 '23

Thank god he didn’t end up with Alpine, I don’t think he’d ever accomplish anything with them

3

u/SwaggamanNMGN Mar 02 '23

Now i'm hungry for some roti

7

u/Sam5qu4nch Mar 01 '23

Young drivers + Hulk

2

u/baldbarretto Who's that? Mar 02 '23

And all the young gun “generational talents” in top cars in the second slot

4

u/[deleted] Mar 01 '23

Technically, Hulk is a rookie. He will never get signed on by the top 3 teams Red Bull, Ferrari & Aston Martin.

79

u/Electrical_Dinner773 Fernando Alonso Mar 01 '23

Nice to see rookies together in their first press conference. Especially the promising young prospects, Alonso and Hulk.

u/dogratt Ferrari Mar 01 '23

I know it’s been race week since Monday but seeing this post makes it so real!

85

u/blastedshark Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

It truly only starts after the Thursday Hamilton fashion post

12

u/EddieGrant Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

I'm an avid fan, watch a lot, keep up with a lot, yet when I see that post come by, I know it's real.

u/DuFFman_ Yuki Tsunoda Mar 01 '23

Thats how my gf knows it's rawe ceek, I send her Hamilton's fit

2

u/Guac__is__extra__ Mar 02 '23

It snuck up on me. I didn’t realize we were already there.

174

u/mar33n Yuki Tsunoda Mar 01 '23

it's time to start "will gasly and tsunoda ever get the same interview slots" watch

38

u/Certified_Fool Mar 01 '23

But atleast we have Carlando

31

u/Gnarlo85 Pierre Gasly Mar 01 '23

Will definitely miss their bro-mance this year, for sure.

u/Jannl0 Lance Stroll Mar 01 '23

There's no reason for him to be in these interviews. He'll barely be at the track and probably won't drive in an official session unless someone is sick.

125

u/OutlandishnessPure2 😺 Jimmy & Sassy 😺 Mar 01 '23

Looks like this year I won't need to keep track of the lack of Max & Daniel in the same group :(

53

u/Rosieu Spyder Mar 01 '23

At least we start the year with the emotional support rivals :')

20

u/SilentViper96 Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

Thank you for giving this to me. I didn't realise this would be a thing since Ricciardo is in RedBull now essentially .

67

u/kolsonk Pirelli Hard Mar 01 '23

Oh yes, all the rookies in the first slot

58

u/antivirals_ 70th Anniversary Mar 01 '23

they just wanna throw that "Fernando, you made your first F1 race entry a month before Piastri was born, who between the two of you do you think will be rookie of the year come December?"

29

u/Potential-Machine396 Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

The rookies and the oldest guy in the group.

25

u/pranay909 Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

Nico isn’t that old. /s

4

u/dianesmoods Lando Norris Mar 01 '23 edited Mar 01 '23

Well, he is the same age as Seb, and he retired, so.. ;)

2

u/guywhoishere Aston Martin Mar 01 '23

But he is the 3rd oldest. It's Alonso, then 3.5 years younger is Hamilton, then 2.5 years younger is Hulk.

1

u/pranay909 Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

Heard about sarcasm? And everyone knows alonso doesn’t age and Lewis isn’t in that group!

1

u/guywhoishere Aston Martin Mar 01 '23

yeah, I'm just adding some fun context.

25

u/Farrisioso Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

The tension between TBC and Hamilton will be very exciting to watch

29

u/storme9 Yuki Tsunoda Mar 01 '23

Interesting round 1 of team personnel is TPs and round 2 is TDs. All good choices though from the news we’ve been hearing on testing.

30

u/Firefox72 Ferrari Mar 01 '23

Well the F1 media manager certainly does not expect Aston to fight at the front i see.

RB, Ferrari, Mercedes and Alpine driver in the same press conference and then you have Alonso in the other one haha. Feels like a missed oportunity if your already gonna have 4 drivers from teams expected to be top 5 you might aswell make it 5/5.

13

u/kaklaman Fernando Alonso Mar 01 '23

Ig it's all the drivers in a new team in the first one

4

u/Brooht Esteban Ocon Mar 01 '23

Gasly is also in a new team though

12

u/Mr_XemiReR Valtteri Bottas Mar 01 '23

It's the rookies (+ Hulk) and Alonso. There's always lots of excitement around the new drivers and goes without saying quite a lot of excitement around Alonso too

2

u/kaklaman Fernando Alonso Mar 01 '23

You're right, idk

1

u/[deleted] Mar 01 '23

Clearly, they haven’t figured out Aston Martin is a top 3 team alongside Ferrari and Red Bull. It’s okay. They will change it for the Saudi Grand Prix.

11

u/bonbonron Heineken Trophy Mar 01 '23

Months of being edged are finally coming to an end this weekend.

11

u/pinkiscosmic Formula 1 Mar 01 '23

Was looking for Ricciardo and Vettel, then realized...

9

u/iMatthew1990 Murray Walker Mar 01 '23

Been buzzing to finally see TBC in a car. Lets go!

8

u/Kyleg951 Mar 01 '23

PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD PRESS CONFERENCE SET UP

22

u/shivasiddharth Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

Still AM have not finalized their driver for Bahrain ? Are they hoping for Stroll to miraculously get fit ?

24

u/Mike5667 Mar 01 '23

Apparently he’s fit but he has to pass the FIA medical check tomorrow hence why he’s not confirmed

3

u/ztpurcell Zhou Guanyu Mar 01 '23

First time watching sports?

1

u/EddieGrant Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

I'm guessing he's at 99% and they'll do a final check tomorrow or before FP1 before deciding if he'll race.

13

u/ZephyrSonic 2022 r/formula1 World Champion Mar 01 '23

As always, I'll have the Press Conferences posted in full quality on my reddit profile shortly after airing. So if you're wanting to watch them from me every race weekend, you can either follow my profile and wait for them shortly after it airs or just hover over my profile and I'll have them out :)

5

u/Self_Tilted Mar 01 '23

I see Alonso and Hulk are on rookie duty for that first interview

6

u/MikeRoss95 Ferrari Mar 01 '23

difference between TV pen and Press conference ?

3

u/Enzown Mar 02 '23

One is a press conference so all media and drivers are there same time and all hear each other's questions and answers. TV pen is where drivers are in an area and will speak one on one with tv crews around the outside of the area.

2

u/MikeRoss95 Ferrari Mar 02 '23

Alright, i thought everyone went to tv pen

3

u/Enzown Mar 02 '23

They do after quali and races cause they have to walk through the area, but this is Thursday so it's a chance for media to get their comments for previews of the weekend.

1

u/MikeRoss95 Ferrari Mar 02 '23

right , thankyou for the input

6

u/BadControllerUser Manor Mar 01 '23

The 3 superstars in one conference including Zhou Guanyu, Pierre Gasly & Walter Koster

4

u/[deleted] Mar 01 '23

Where can I find the tv pen interviews? I only have f1 tv..

5

u/yeyitomx Mar 01 '23

How do I see the TV Pen interviews?

5

u/Phantom_god7 Mar 02 '23

Where can we watch these?

3

u/z0e_G Gasly Papas A La Francesa Mar 01 '23

The banter that will ensue in that second press conference slot lolol

5

u/FaultySky Ferrari Mar 01 '23

TBC for Aston Martin due to the Stroll situation. Not up to date with the rules on that, given AM has known about Strolls situation for more then a week now, does that mean they have to appoint a replacement before the media session or could they technically postpone it to FP1 and skip the media session?

4

u/CakeBeef_PA Safety Car Mar 01 '23

I believe Stroll still needs to pass medical checks, so officially they don't know who is racing

3

u/Plastic-Sorbet-9743 Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

I miss seeing vettels name here already

1

u/[deleted] Mar 01 '23

Can you imagine, the year he retires Aston Martin becomes a race winning contender. Hence, with Strullovich causing a mischief on his bike. Vettel was so eager to take his seat.

2

u/Plastic-Sorbet-9743 Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

If this happens I’ll never watch f1 again lol

1

u/[deleted] Mar 01 '23

I want AM to be a top 3 team.

2

u/Aero__Duck Sebastian Vettel Mar 01 '23

just realised australia practice 1 & 2 is on my birthday neat

u/K-Kov815 Daniil Kvyat Mar 01 '23

that’s a lot of hours

2

u/Eclipsed830 Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

Can I watch these somehow?

2

u/YourUndoing Formula 1 Mar 01 '23

interesting, no Toto

2

u/JonStomach Mar 01 '23

With the wording of First Three Finishing Drivers for Post race doesn’t this technically mean a lapped driver could be in instead of the top 3 finishers. I know that they aren’t doing that but based on the wording that’s what they would do

4

u/shreychopra Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

So the rumours were correct, The Bee Caretaker will be driving for Aston this weekend! Welcome back Seb :’)

4

u/QCHICK Robert Kubica Mar 01 '23

Who’s that TBC guy? Never heard of him, is he fast?

They can fill in that last press conference as well: Sunday, 05 March. Post-Race

1 Max Verstappen (Red Bull)

2 Sergio Perez (Red Bull)

3 Charles Leclerc (Ferrari)

u/MrPrul Formula 1 Mar 06 '23

Welp, I was almost right. Don’t blame me. Blame Ferrari.

u/Ign0r Charles Leclerc Mar 01 '23

All young drivers coming through!

u/_bdub_ Mar 02 '23

Sir Lewis Hamilton relegated to the TV pen.

1

u/Yodplods McLaren Mar 02 '23

I’ve never found how to actually watch these live…. can we even do it?

1

u/Onelimwen Red Bull Mar 02 '23

They should switch it up a bit and do the post race interviews with 3 random drivers instead of the top 3

1

u/Gier32o Mar 02 '23

where can I watch it actually?

1

u/MatK0506 Ferrari Mar 02 '23

I don't understand the TP choices.

Why not Wolff instead of (with all due respect) Stella?

1

u/wannadielmao Charles Leclerc Mar 02 '23

if this is Bahrain time, shouldnt it have started? Is it not available on F1 TV pro? huge L if not
