Re: Murray Walker Puts Neck out there: HAM v SCH v SEN

Thing is, what are we debating here? Is Murray saying he's the most talented? The word he used was "greatest", which perhaps implies he's referring to the whole package rather than just driving ability. Good point. But does being nice to other drivers mean they aren't great? "Greatest" refers to bo...

Re: Is Mercedes unbeatable?

I wonder if its not so much about design as personnel and the approach to development. Ferrari and Red Bull seem to revolve around key people, Newey and Helmut Marko at Red Bull and at Ferrari, Binnotto or whoever they deem as the boss in a revolving power struggle. Mercedes run their 'equal opportu...

Re: Race weekend format

I quite like the idea. 90 minutes is ample time for everyone to have a few practice runs to fine-tune setup, do a quali sim and then a longer run to test a race stint. The junior categories get 1 practice session on a race weekend so why not F1? The current format of three sessions does seem excess...

Re: F1, Racism & BlackLivesMatter

Jean Todt has been praising Lewis Hamilton for his stance on racism. Chase Carey has donated £1,000,000 of his own money to fight racism. Kevin Magnuson chose to stand at the weekend. Its an odd internal protest in my view. I really like the image below from the article. https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/on...

Good to see that it's been shown that Kvyat had a puncture that pitched him off. He was so apologetic to his team after the crash but it wasn't at all his fault.
Did a few crazy things early on but I have to say I'm warming to him now! I think he appreciates the fact he is still in F1

There is nothing wrong with the tyres. The teams pushed the tyres past the working life of the tyre. Excuse me, according to Pirelli the hard tire is good for 60 laps, IIRC.

It really is and as been pointed out it can trigger another driver t...

Bottas is within striking distance of Verstappen in 22 laps, then a few laps later, down to 6. These are totally meaningless and incorrect.
