Re: Grand Prix Driver on Amazon

I worked at McLaren while they were filming and preparing this - I was part of Automotive so I couldn't say for certain but I think what you see in these 4 episodes is a heavily edited, condensed version of what was originally planned. I saw them filming sections with Jackie Stewart and I think this...

Re: Alfa Romeo name back to F1

I like it, it's minimal but I also liked the look of the 2010-2012 Saubers. There's another angle at https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/sauber-alfa-romeo-reveals-livery-985172/ I'm disappointed but not surprised to see Wehrlein out.

Re: Green or red tail lights on F1 cars

Oliver Turvey (who doesn't have a Super License) had a green light at the back - I don't have a link but it was featured in one of McLaren's twitter posts. What adds extra fuel to the Kubica hype train is that apparently the Super License is registered and paid for by the team, meaning that Williams...

Re: 2017 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

Also worth noting Vettel's overall pitstop from entry to exit was 3-4 tenths faster than Bottas'. I'm not sure if the stop was faster or if Vettel cut it finer and was more aggressive on entry (and exit). Bottas was 2.7, Vettel was 2.1. If not for that Bottas might've been out ahead of Vettel.

Re: 2017 Japanese Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thre

Is it a driver pushing over the limit to get the most out of a slow/badly set-up car, or is it a lack of talent? Obviously Lotus/Renault and Haas have seen something in him for him to keep his place all this time, but it's hard not to be frustrated by yet another incident.
