    Shall we talk porpoising?

    Yes, it is back. The bouncing up and down of the cars that was not so much of an issue in Canada, Silverstone and Austria, is a problem again in France.

    Some have got it worse than others. Lando Norris was bouncing all about in FP1 and it looked mighty uncomfortable. Same too for Carlos Sainz.

    Less so for Max Verstappen, but it is still occurring. Stiffer planks from Spa and new sensors in place next season to stop it.

    Spin for Schumacher

    The Haas man has been earning some praise recently for his performances in the race, less so for that spin though.

    He's managed to keep his car out of trouble and apart from ruining his tyres, remains all in good shape.

    Penalties for Sainz

    If you missed it earlier, Sainz will face a 10-place grid drop on Sunday for new components on his Ferrari.

    Remember his car caught fire last out in Austria and Ferrari have taken a new control electronics on his power unit, triggering the penalty.

    Leclerc topped FP1

    The Ferrari man was the quickest in the morning session ahead of Max Verstappen while Carlos Sainz was third.

    George Russell was in fourth in his Mercedes but there was no Lewis Hamilton, who was replaced by Nyck De Vries as part of a routine swap to give young drivers some experience – only he's 27.
