  1. Brexit

    Let's get a grip! Both the FIA and F1 have existed long before the EU. As far as F1 is concerned - Brexit will have very little effect (if any).
  2. Winter testing

    Exactly!...With testing being so limited it should be used to the MAX, no sandbagging, no BS. In a former life, I used to work for Shell and every year Ferrari would bring their A team inc Shumi to Thornton Teck Park in the UK for """"fuel testing"""! Strange how the track was not at all straight and there was a full aero team in tow. The point I'm trying to clumsily make is: less testing seems to have only led to more domination for whatever team roles up in top shape for race 1. (sure Ferrari in those "testing days" dominated - but not by much, and it allowed others to challenge) All this fake budget cap nonsense is kidding no-one. Just let those that can.....DO! and those that can't.....well there will always be a bottom half
  3. Maybe time to consider flipping the switch
  4. Hype

    What a pity Red Bull are their own title sponsors. Would have been great to see one of their cars sponsored by Pepsi-MAX! (sorry - couldn't resist) Wonder what other relevant sponsorship deals you'd like to see?
  5. There seems to be nothing other than spam posted on this site recently. Where are all the admins to clean up this sort of nonsense? On a more serious note - the abusive posts have increased exponentially over the last year or so. If the owners and admins of this forum want to contribute to F1 debate with any sort of meaning - then it needs sorting now. Either that - or will the last person please turn off the lights on their way out.
  6. Vettel gets grid drop for red-flag speeding

    I feel it may be a year too soon for Leclerc - if that's the case, then he may be the new massa. btw - Welcome to the madhouse Samouri

    History has proven you right,
  8. Vettel gets grid drop for red-flag speeding

    All the greats get themselves in the best cars at the best times. There is little point with all those drivers moaning that they could win in a Merc. Fact is - Merc did NOT want those other drivers. Verstapen tried to get in a Ferrari - Failed Ricciardo tried to get in Ferrari and Merc - Failed Alonso tried to get anywhere! - Failed Merc and Ferrari wanted Hamilton and he delivered again and again. You don't get to be 5 times world champion without being pretty special. The 2nd step in being a world champ is getting in a winning car - the 1st step is being wanted by a winning team!
  9. Vettel gets grid drop for red-flag speeding

    If Red Bull doesn't seal this race win, they should be ashamed. Merc only need Lewis to finish in the points, Ferrari engine does not have the grunt at high altitude. This really is an open goal for Red Bull, Anything less than a 1 - 2 would be a failure. Either way, hard to see a way Lewis will not be crowned champion for the 5th time today. ps. an honourable mention to Vandoorne for qualifying less than a tenth/sec behind Alonso. Probably his best quali.
  10. 2018 Mexican Grand Prix

    Better to say McLaren almost 2 seconds off best Renault powered car, also Williams 3 seconds off best Mercedes powered car and Hass 2 seconds off best Ferrari powered car. I'm no fan of Alonso, but I doubt any other driver could have done any better in the McLaren. With the Honda being over 2 seconds off pole, perhaps Red Bull may have some concerns about next season. As for the race itself - the high altitude and thin are may prove a little testing for the turbos. Possible engine failures tomorrow.

    Guys Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how well you move or the result, the pigeon will still sh!t on the board and strut around as though he has won!
  12. 2017 Indy 500

    Who cares? Just because a current F1 driver is involved does not make it any more relevant to this site. If the site subject is now so tenuous - I look forward to updates on Golf, Triathlons and celebrity soccer matches! We actually have the most interesting F1 season for many a year, yet all I ever read is how much every loves or hates a driver for a low to mid table team. No wonder you can hear the tumbleweed around here. OaO
  13. Teammate War - Who's Winning ?

    Nico just does not have the bottle, balls - call it what you will. On average Lewis betters him 2 - 3 races to 1 over a season. The margin of victory is not as important as the number of victories. Nico will win again, but that will be followed by 2 or 3 Lewis wins.
  14. Redbull In Serious Trouble.

    RBR only ever care about selling god awful fizzy drinks. F1 is just one of many vehicles (pardon the pun) for that. They won 4 titles with an "underpowered" power unit, so they can cope. This seems like a total exit strategy badly managed, the fizzy drink king does not want to pay any more and is looking for a get out of jail card. The proposed sale to VW is on ice now due to fact that VW software may now declare their F1 cars as1 litre diesel! Just the same as the cancer stick makers that used to own what is now merc. As soon as a product pusher does not see the value - they move on. F1 has survived countless teams leaving - and it will survive without RBR,
  15. Where Will Ricciardo Be In 2016?

    He'll stay put, this is just about getting more cash. End of!
