    Di Grassi is leading by 18 points. There's 29 points available today (25 for the win, 3 for pole, 1 for fastest lap).

    Gonna be very tough for Buemi to get that gap back.
    Oh. Well, De Grassi is not exactly a nice fellow either. So one is a shithead on the track, the other one is a shithead off the track. Wish someone likeable would challenge for that title for a change.
    We need Sam Bird to up his game! And Vergne too.

  2. I'm gonna be sour and say I hope that Di Grassi's gets taken out in turn 1 by Prost. The cheating bumhole is only gonna win this because Buemi had to skip 2 races. The second best driver will be champion without Prost's intervention!

    And yea Buemi completely lost it yesterday, but it was fucking hilarious to watch :p

    I thought so too, but now I know it won't be. That's because I've actually acquired some new sources, from some French Monsieur, who wishes to remain nameless, and he tells me that it's actually Kvyat who will be going to Ferrari! 

    He also says Red Bull and Toro Rosso to quit F1 at the end of this year, Peugeot to re-enter F1 with McLaren, and Pastor Maldonado to join Liberty Media in a role called 'Director of Entertainment'.

    Sounds mad, but believe me on this folks! If I'm wrong, I'll ban myself!
    I wonder if Eddie Jordan has any French roots.

  4. How many times do I have to spell it out AMS? You don't consider the races during Hamilton's title years as exciting, because you don't like Hamilton. I disagree, as do other Hamilton fans. I find the races during the Vettel years less exciting, you disagree as do other Vettel fans.

    You can't look at it objectively, you can't just say "oh if it wasn't for the title", and you can't say Red Bull didn't dominate when they won the championships 4 years in a row. I'm done because we'll never agree and I can't be arsed to just repeat myself over and over.

    Is that better than a meme? I'm not pissed off at you, or even upset with you, just I can't be bothered to constantly have to repeat that I find the Hamilton years more exciting because my favourite driver is winning, while you find the Vettel years more exciting because your favourite driver was winning.

    I'm talking purely as a neutral on this one. Take out the Vettel-Alonso battle and it is still a great race. I forgot just how long Hulkenberg led the race for, such a shame he made a stupid decision to overtake Lewis when he did.

    Edit: Hamilton didn't have much competition all race from what I remember, he was mostly just going around in 4th. I was mostly waiting for the last few laps.
    Here's the catch, you can't speak as a neutral no matter how hard you try, cos you support the driver who won in 2012! I can't either, cos I support the driver who won in 2008. You'll always favour the races your favourite driver won, whether or not you say you're being neutral.

    Like I'm guessing you don't consider Canada 2011 to be probably the best race of the last 20-30 years, mainly because Vettel stuffed it and didn't win.

  6. Here's mine.

    Mercedes | Hamilton / Bottas
    Ferrari | Vettel / Grosjean
    Red Bull | Ricciardo / Verstappen
    Force India | Ocon / Perez
    Williams | Massa / Stroll
    Haas | Leclerc / Magnussen
    Renault | Hulkenberg / Kubica
    Toro Rosso | Kvyat / Sainz
    McLaren | Alonso / Vandoorne
    Sauber | Ericsson / Wehrlein

    I can see Grosjean going to Ferrari over Perez, mainly because in Canada he wouldn't play the team game, and after Baku just straight up blaming his teammate (even though he's mostly right) rather than moving on and forgetting about it. It's almost like his ego has inflated a bit this season, and I think Ferrari would rather go for Grosjean who'd be more compliant overall.

    With Haas more or less being a Ferrari B-team it'd make sense for Leclerc to fill Grosjean's old seat if he carries on with his cruise to the F2 title.

    I can definitely see Renault bringing back Kubica, cos even with a gammy arm he'd be faster and more consistent than Palmer.

    Sainz is locked into his Red Bull/Toro Rosso contract, and Christian Horner has said today that it's likely Kvyat will stay, despite Gasly waiting for a seat.

    Alonso will go for a 1 year extension at McLaren cos none of the big teams want him. The rest will more or less stay the same.

  7. Apparently this is the Shield cockpit protection. Pretty much just Red Bull's aeroscreen but going down the nose further. Gonna be tested next weekend at Silverstone, by Ferrari.

    Pathetic, how can we seriously lose a track like Silverstone??
    I don't think we're really gonna lose it bud. I think they're doing this because they want to renegotiate their contract with the news owners, because they know they won't be squeezed for money in the same way they would be by Bernie.

    @RevolvingPrawn So I have a new neighbour. He's 26 and in a wheelchair, it's a 1 bedroom bungalow, already my bastard of next door neighbour has shown his true colours. The day the new guy moved in my next door neighbour sent him a welcome card, then this morning I heard him say why should a bloke like that get a bungalow. He really does have a hatred for disabled people and is a cowered who won't say **** to someones face. 
    Do the right thing and let your new neighbour know what he's really like :p Otherwise he'll think he's nice for sending the welcome card, and we can't have that lol.

  10. Finally completely finished Andromeda. I'm glad I did as it did get better as the game went on. I still don't like having to keep jumping between several outposts for sidequests but at least they're not all essential.
    I also still don't think it's anywhere near as good as the original trilogy but it's still a great game on it's own when not taking the trilogy into account. It'll probably just make me enjoy the trilogy more to be honest.

    Said about DLC the other day and having seen how they've clearly set up a sequel and the plots to DLC I would definitely get them. The quarian ark is the most obvious one and it would be interesting to see who this Benefactor is. Not sure if that will be DLC or in the next game though. I kind of hope there will be a DLC that has a stronger link to the trilogy. Was interesting hearing about the war in the Milky War from a different perspective so it would be great if they explored that further.
    There is DLC in the works I think though as someone on BSN asked them and they said they can' t talk about it yet which seems a good indicator to me that there is some on the way it's just a matter of what and when. But yeah Quarian Ark is heavily hinted as a DLC. The Benefactor also and of course Ryder's mother as well would be nice to see if we manage to find a cure for her illness so she can be brought out of stasis. Might make for a good DLC in itself that having the 2 Ryder twins Scott and Sara team up on a mission to find a cure for Mum kind of like what they did on the final mission of the game
    You might wanna do the spoilers thing on that...

    Nice EA Origin Access has a free 7 day trial. Mirrors Edge Catalyst for free :D  I would also download BF4 and Battlefront, but I'm guessing multiplayer is pretty dead.
    Is it one of those trials though where you have to remember to cancel it before the end? :p

  12. Hate to be the downer, but just because they've recorded lines it doesn't mean any DLC will happen. The guy who voiced Franklin in GTA V tweeted about 8 months after the game came out that he was back in the studio recording lines again, but nothing ever came of it.

  13. Too much Apple there to read lol :p

    To echo you a bit though Matt, I won't be switching to an iPhone any time soon, that's for certain. I love my Sony XZ, and loved the Z3 before it too so I'll be staying on Android for my phones. And I sure as shit won't be even looking at any kind of laptop or desktop from Apple, they're way too closed off for my taste.

    But when it comes to tablets they do nail it. I've been looking to replace my Nexus 9 for a while because for a tablet which has some pretty damn good specs it was always much slower than it really should have been. It was a pretty disappointing thing to use. But the only real Android alternative ATM is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 or S3, and personally I just don't like Samsung. Mostly because the S3 phone I had was awful after 2 years of use, and they make their stuff from tacky plastic and cheaper materials. I went into CeX yesterday though and noticed the Air 2, did some research yesterday on it, and got one today :)

    It sure as hell won't make me an Apple fan, not with the shadey way they have a habit of doing things with. But it is way better than the Nexus 9 and that's all I wanted!

  14. So, I told @Hughesy I wasn't gonna tell anybody, but I've turned to the Dark Side today...

    I got rid of my Nexus 9 and bought a 64GB iPad Air 2 :D And so far, zero regrets. So far it's better than the Nexus 9 in every way. Never thought I'd be typing that lol.

    Turned my PS4 on for the first time in like 2 years. I forgot how bad the analogue triggers are, not only do they not have the haptic feedback of the Xbox triggers, but also there's no real resistance so you can't feel very well how hard you are pressing them. I played Drive Club, with a wheel I enjoyed it when I first bought it, using the dualshock not so much. I also can't work out why it only runs at 30fps as its not exactly pretty, the PS4 is more powerful than Xbox, yet Forza 6 is much better looking and runs at 60fps.

    Sell your PS4 and put the money towards a glorious new monitor ;)
    Hasn't anyone told you that PS4 potato race sucks ;) The pro has upscaled from 1080p, 4k 'support' with a tb hdd, which is super slow compared to an SSD.

    I'd love to get a curved gaming monitor myself tho.
    FTFY ;)

  17. Same dude, I've been eyeing that car up for the last few days and there's nothing that comes close in terms of spec for the price from any other manufacturer. Just made sense to go for it :) Haha, that'll be perfect timing on getting yours then :p I'm looking forward to when it gets cold so I can try out all the heated stuff. And for those who don't know, Martin is my best friend and I'm definitely gonna be putting the passenger seat heater on when he gets in :D
