Re: F1 2020 Livery Predictions and Hopes

Nice to see I'm not the only one hoping for green added to the grid via the Alfa Romeo and Racing Point!

I wonder why green is so rare in F1. Green liveries like the Jaguars and Lotuses always do well in fan surveys.
I suppose there just aren't a lot of green sponsors in F1 these days.

F1 2020 Livery Predictions and Hopes

While we're waiting on the new car launches, I thought it's be a bit fun if we look at the ten cars, guess what they're going to look like and then imagine what we would do with them. What I would like to see: Mercedes - More teal/turquoise on the car. Another contrasting colour to the silver would ...

Re: Unpopular opinions (2019)

Giovinazzi has improved a lot over the season and after two years out he was always going to take time to get back up to speed. In my opinion he deserves another season and it wouldn't surprise me to see him look quicker, if not outscore, Kimi in 2020. Completely agree. The camera seems to pan to t...

Re: Ferrari team orders in Russia

Has anyone said that Vettel was NEVER going to give the place back? I don't think even Vettel has said it. So I don't know how Leclerc or the team can lose trust. Vettel couldn't move over at that early stage because of how close Hamilton was. And they worked it out anyway. Leclerc got the undercut...

Is the Force India driver lineup dependent on Alonso at all?
I imagine they will resign Hulk and Checo, but are FI waiting on the Alonso announcement (to maybe pinch FA or Magnussen or someone??) or are they just doing their usual trick of waiting until everyone else has announced their drivers first?
