Ask /r/formula1 Anything – Daily Discussion – 18 September 2022 – Reddit r/formula1

#Welcome to the /r/formula1 Daily Discussion / Q&A thread.

This thread is a hub for general discussion and questions about Formula 1, that don’t need threads of their own.

Are you new to Formula 1? This is the place for you. Ever wondered why it’s called a lollipop man? Why the cars don’t refuel during pitstops? Or when Mika will be back from his sabbatical? Ask any question you might have here, and the community will answer.

Also make sure you check out our [guide for new fans](/r/formula1/wiki/newtof1), and our [FAQ for new fans](/r/formula1/wiki/faq).

Are you a veteran fan, longing for the days of lollipop men, refueling during pitstops, and Mika Häkkinen? This is the place to introduce new fans to your passion and knowledge of the sport.

Remember to keep it civil and welcoming! Gatekeeping within the Daily Discussion will subject users to disciplinary action.
