  • I don't know how many of you are still keeping track of this but I'm gonna help some of you scrubs out with a few fundamental truths that have become apparent in this game: * if you don't have Mercedes or Ferrari or Red Bull as your team yo…
  • I saw Ed Sheeran in Manchester a few weeks back. Like you, not exactly by choice, but he alright give him a chance. The strangest part of the experience was seeing the Etihad stadium full for once.  Anyway yeah, LMP1 is dead in the water at the mom…
  • fIsince08 said: I've kept an eye on Leclerc for a while, he's fantastic. You talk as if he's some driver that no-ones heard of before. I think most people expected this with his rise through the ranks but my only concern was that he d…
  • Jiggy said: As for the driving style-approach, I get what he's saying, it's that style that has served him very well for most of his career and most of his F1-career too. The problem is that when you drive so much on the limit as Max does, all-…
  • Football matches are 90 mins. Grand slam tennis matches are normally 90-120 mins at least. NBA games are around 2 hours with timeouts taken in to consideration. And most F1 races are around the 80-100 mins mark.  I'd like someone from Liberty to ex…
  • Feel like Ferrari and Mercedes let Red Bull off the hook today. Two stop was the way to go, not sure Ricciardo would've held back cars going 3-4 seconds a lap quicker with low power.  That said, I'm glad Ricciardo won because he deserved it. 
  • Never understood the hype about refuelling. From 1993 in to 1994 (when refuelling was introduced) overtaking numbers declined sharply. Then between 1994 and 2009 when refuelling was active, overtaking was at its lowest amount in the past 40 years…
  • Agree with the pessimism surrounding the blue flag removal idea. It sounds great on paper until a great race for the lead is ruined just so we don't disturb the battle for 15th place. Illogical.  The only F1 TV personality I've seen publicly in fav…
  • GoldenColt said: Ah, a new category: Most prominent team that was blistering their tyres. See, but this is irrelevant to your previous sentiment that Pirelli made these changes specifically to help Mercedes. Which is simply not true, as other tea…
  • GoldenColt said: I was just giving you some of your own medicine, Seb. And surprise, surprise, you didn't like it. Merc weren't the only ones blistering tyres in winter testing IIRC. Apart from that, I remember Pirelli saying that they would h…
  • GoldenColt said: Weird how as long as Merc were struggling with these unpredictable tyres everything was fine, but once that changes for one quali, it's a disaster. But don't worry, they will only use these modified tyres on like 3 circuits thi…
  • Pirelli change tire construction under advice from Mercedes. Mercedes go 1-2. *pretends to be shocked*
  • Obligatory uni event? That's a new one In my experience of living under the unwritten student code, no event is truly "obligatory" more "optional" depending on the effects of the night before. 
  • The best way to get rid of grid penalties is to get to the root of why they're limited to a certain amount in the first place - cost. Lower cost for parts means they can have more of them for the same amount of money. Pretty straight forward.  The …
  • Directly before qualifying I switched out Leclerc for Ericcson, and Hamilton for Vettel. That strategic move cost me 41 points. I also had Grosjean in my team who somehow got -20.   Given all that I'm bewildered to be 2nd. Some of you guys must rea…
  • GoldenColt said: I doubt his tyres were done before he locked up, the laptimes don't bear that out.  The lock-up itself, well, it happens. Especially if you are on the edge trying to keep up with a much faster car. Yeaah. Vettel locking …
  • GoldenColt said: Payback for 2017 for Lewis, about high time he wins this race. Bottas was lucky to be in the lead in the first place, his pace in the first stint was atrocious. Lewis leading the WDC in an inferior car makes this all so much sw…
  • GoldenColt said: I can't help but feel that this season's a joke due to the tyres. Much like the first half of 2012. If Mercedes' gets on top of things and win the title I'm sure that feeling will subside DiRTKiNG808 said: Ev…
  • haydn23 said: Do we have any ideas on how Max binned that? Because it's Max. We always hear about how he finds new ways to overtake and that can be attributed to crashes as well.  That said, all Ferrari and Mercedes fans should count th…
