    Ferrari 2021

    I am guessing they made him an offer they knew he would refuse. They may have even been in discussion with Sainz before they made the offer to him. There are rumors that there were some other clauses in the offer beyond reduced money (12M) and a 1-year term. I think Vettel himself has hinted at that. That Vettel called it a joke indicates that the offer probably had the expected effect. It kind of looks like a dismissal.

    Well, I gather the dismissal of Vettel took a few weeks also. The first I heard about it was a couple of weeks ago when Vettel dismissed the offer of a one year contract for 12M as a joke. I gather that offer had been made a least a week earlier. So mosl likely this process was dragging out a month before hand, if not much longer. Now things can happen in a couple of days in F1 (like Watson’s replacement by Prost) but this clearly was going on for.a month or two. What else do they have to do at the moment.

    Who are you quoting?
  4. Zak Brown made it pretty clear in an interview today that Seb was never considered. Apparently the DR deal had been in work for a while (these things usually takes weeks, if not months) and they were pretty far down the pike when the news about Seb came out. Of course, this does open the question as to whether Zak Brown had known for a while that Sainz was going to Ferrari.
  5. Just testing to see if this works: http://@Sakae Not sure how you are linking people's names into the thread.
  6. Well, there are probably going to be more incidences like that the longer people are cooped up. At least he wasn't streaking.
  7. Well, it is not going to start before then.....and I would be surprised if the Canadians allow this.
  8. It is clearly F1 related and it is going to affect everything from: 1. The racing calendar 2. Number of F1 races run. 3. The Championship. 4. Team productivity. 5. The ability of Ferrari to correct their lackluster car (this is probably helping them). 6. Sponsorship. 7. F1 finances. 8. The funding for some teams. 9. and so forth. Furthermore, the economic impact is going to drag on for a couple of years. This is an outside factor that is clearly going to have a significant impact on F1.
  9. Hey Paolo,

       I am thinking about migrating forums (again). I have been disappointed in the quality of posting in this forum and find myself mostly just talking to you (not that this is a bad thing). Still......it is kind of ghost of a forum.

       I was approached last week by a new forum: https://www.formula1grid.com/ They asked me to join their forum and also post to their front page. I was hardly looking for another writing project, having just finished up the first draft of a new book....but, I am tempted by the forum and the format. Apparently Lipstick79 has already migrated there (as Pepsi79).  

       So....1) would you be tempted to move to this new forum and 2) would you be tempted to post your great post-race summaries to the front page? I am probably going to take them up on the offer to post on their front page occasionally, although I already have a blog I maintain: http://www.dupuyinstitute.org/blog/ ....but I consider your post-race summaries far better than anything I can write.

       I have told them that you are the guy they really want on their forum, although I have not told them anything about your background.

       Anyhow, let me know if you are interested in migrating.

    Chris

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  10. Welcome Hawaii. Why 5.44? P.S. I was born in Honolulu: Tripler Army Hospital.
  11. Just bumping this thread up. Do we have any new members?
  12. This is my new home...although I have not been very active lately.
  13. Well, looks like the GP.com forum is back up. I am here to stay....I am not going back (even though I was a moderator there). I gather the same is true for Lyria/Angellica. The guy (Mark Karp) closed the forum there for months without warning and would not communicate with us. So...... At least now we are able to tell the rest of the www.grandprix.com forum mates where we went to.
  14. Anglica I still don't think I can get the quote function to work. Have no idea why.
  15. So Angellica...why does my quote function not work? I hit quote on your last post (#1475)...typed in my answer...and your line is not quoted. What am I doing wrong?
  16. Yes, I had a business website with a forum and I noticed that it starting dying off around 2007 or so. The same appears to have been the case later with grandprix.com, although it was with a lot more drama. I gather that this forum is not as active as it once was. I do have facebook, linkedin, twitter and a blog, mostly for business. I still prefer the community of a forum and have developed some real friends in the process.
  17. So, you cool with the name change?
  18. Greetings all. Our forum appears to have just been shut down (www.grandprix.com), so migrating over here. A few forum mates may follow. Easy to register in this forum if you are not color-blind (I had fits with the security check). Are forums in general becoming passé as people move to other medium?
