  1. How long have you had it for then? I've had 2 Logitech wheels (DFGT and G29) and haven't ever had an issue! Sold the DFGT after about 5 years, had my G29 about 2.5 years now :)
  2. Don't think it's a penalty. Verstappen was alongside and he did attempt to actually make the corner unlike Rosberg a few years ago. If there was a wall on the exit, Leclerc would have conceded earlier. Anyway he shouldn't have left the door open, that was an amatuer mistake. Everyone knows Max will go for a gap if it's there so why leave him the inside? You cover that inside line and he cant push you off... A good example of where this is illegal would be Rosberg vs Max at Hockenheim. He didn't even bother turning in. Just straightlined the hairpin. Rosberg that is.
  3. Must have been interesting for him to read his own obituaries and tributes, if he saw them!
  4. Glad to see him get a seat, not only because he is also from Norfolk but because talent has trumped money it seems. If I was Ocon and Mercedes had paid for that seat for Russell I'd be fuming, has there been any news on that? Looks like I'm going to cheering on Williams next year, what a turn of events.
  5. Apparently Wehrlein is now in line for the seat, so Kvyat and Wehrlein with Hatley out the door? Not a bad line up if that ends up being the case.
  6. What other options did they have, realistically? I thought they were very limited.  Thing is, I don't think Kvyat is bad at all, he is talented enough to warrant a seat. But like you said Hughsey, if he isn't ever going to get back to red bull it's pointless. But I think if he performs well be can get back there, the Kvyat we saw at Toro Rosso in his first season was worthy of a bigger move so there's no reason he can't rekindle that. 
  7. Didn't expect Kimi to sign for Sauber for 2 years, expected him to just leave. I do wonder if 2019 is 1 year early for Leclerc but time will tell. Should be fun to watch whatever happens.
  8. I kinda forget he is racing sometimes. Do think it would be good to see him against a driver like Sainz but you're not wrong.
  9. I don't really understand why McLaren didn't keep Vandoorne to partner Sainz. Norris can stay in F2 for another season if he doesn't win the title, and they get a proper test of how good Vandoorne is, Alonso is not a fair comparison at all. I expect Norris to be a success though.  Absurd decision IMO, but that's been the story of McLaren for years now, stupid decision after stupid decision. Short-sited decisions as well. Chucking out a guy who has been convincingly beaten by Alonso, only to hire someone convincingly beaten by Hulkenberg....
  10. Hopefully. Sainz/Vandoorne has to be the dullest McLaren line-up in my lifetime. No race wins or podiums between them, neither look like potential champions from what we have seen. Norris should walk into that team if he lives up to the hype next year.  I hope we don't see McLaren go the way of Williams.
  11. I do agree with you, there's definitely some obstacles to overcome which is why I don't see them being the dominant form of car any time soon.  The one about the grid being stretched already is the biggest problem, and then as you say, there is the need to make electricity greener using wind/wave/solar rather than fossil fuels. But yeah, like I said, an alternative has to be found to petrol. Whether that is Hydrogen or electric, who knows?  It's for this reason that F1 should avoid electric cars, I really cannot see them being dominant in the next couple of decades. Leave Formula E
  12. See whilst the initial extraction may be worse than petrol car pollution/oil extraction, the recyclable properties of Nickel may make it a better option long term. Oil will run out someday, and Nickel/Electricity will not. Even if oil was greener, it's not sustainable and therefore green or not, it will be gone one day.  And as we know the electrical use is not as polluting as the use of petrol. Over time the overall energy used in production and running of a petrol engine will overtake a battery.  This quote sticks out to me: “We have to get smarter at recovering and reusing t
  13. Is there much evidence to support this claim? I find it difficult to believe. And I should add, whilst extremist vegans annoy me, they are not the majority. As usual its just the internet fanatics, most real people are not like that. Secondly, it is apparently better for the environment to be vegan. But I enjoy meat and dairy too much to give it up :D . 
  14. Maybe, but it depends what Red Bull want. A Bottas type driver who can pick up wins when No.1 isn't able? Or a direct threat to Max?  Renault don't have that luxury, they need two top drivers, and they've got one in Ricciardo. Who can say how good Hulkenberg really is? He has Sainz pretty well covered so far just as Max did in 2015, so next year is a golden opportunity for him.  If Hulkenberg somehow beats Ricciardo, I wonder where he will stand on the radars of the big 3 teams? 
  15. Well the pot would be more evenly shared, so those who finish last like Williams get more than they do now. And yes Ferrari and Mercedes would still have the advantage in terms of personnel for now, there is nothing saying that in future other teams couldn't spend more wisely and jump up to the front. It benefits teams that are more efficient with their spending!  And if you're including the wages of your staff, which I assume we are, then you would have to seriously consider how much you spend on them anyway. Do you have enough cash left after you've bought the best aero team to actuall
  16. Lotus theoretically could return, as Lotus Cars exists - based in the same place as the old F1 team. But I doubt they make close to the money required, it would probably kill them as a company. F1 has just become far, far too expensive. Even a team like Force India, who came 4th last season is in trouble and scraping by race to race.
  17. Agree completely about taking those first half chances, we were always going to concede, it was just a matter of when and even after we conceded we didn't look the more likely to go on and win.  I know most people will be saying about how proud they are, (and that's fine because I'm proud of the team as well) but I can't help but feel that might have been the best chance we will get to see a final involving England for a long, long time. If you look back at our previous games in world cups where we have been knocked out it has always been against "big teams", Croatia are a good side but
  18. Crazy how this World Cup has gone, never been a better chance to get to a final! It seems as if everyone is getting involved and supporting the team in a way I've not seen before myself. Really hope we can make that final, the Croatia game will be very tight and I can see them dominating the midfield with Brozovic, Rakatic and Modric. The set pieces have been incredibly well done by Gareth and his staff. Imagine if we hadn't worked so hard on them, we'd probably have struggled quite a bit due to our failure to convert a lot of chances from open play. That's my one concern about the next game
  19. That layout looks better to be honest. I don't really see what you can do to improve what we have now, perhaps take a different route to extend the run down to the Nouvelle chicane? That would remove Portier by going left somewhere after 7. But then it might require a lot of work to the roads...
  20. Awful haircut, although I've seen worse from Lewis over the off-season. What happened to normal haircuts?
  21. I'm sure Liberty Media will just pay them a ton of cash to shut up and go away, if that's possible in this scenario. But I do hope that it somehow has to be changed back. 
  22. Only 3 or 4 threads in this section have even had a post in the last month.  And in the F1 section most the time there is only a new post on race weekends or when a major piece of news comes out. I remember the "good old days" when the F1 section was full of "discussion", even in the depths of winter. 
  23. Yeah, I agree, it is a bit of a waste without 4k. I can't afford 3 4k monitors personally, and I'd rather have 3x1080p than the one 4k. For now anyway. The RX 480/1060 is about 200-300 depending on the version so luckily it's quite affordable and I should be able to run most games on high/ultra again. But you're right, the prices are a bit insane for the top ones. a 1060 is reasonable, then you get the 1070 for 360+  which is stretching the limits for me, and the 1080 at over 500, well that's me priced out. But then I think I'd be better off building an entirely new PC if I was looking a
  24. My original controller had that problem Hughsey, I thought it was purely an issue on the launch controllers? I got a second one a couple of years ago (It's the 20th anniversary Grey one) as a result of the rubber wearing off, and that one has been fine!  As for the hard drive space, I've not had any issues either, but then it isn't my main platform. I probably buy 1 or 2 games a year for it, such as F1 (You can delete that data every year and replace it with the new game) and I only buy that on PS4 because of league racing, if it wasn't for that I'd probably buy it on PC, if I bough
