Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

like everyone else, i have an opinion on the crash, doesn't really matter. I've been tired of random penalties, from random stewards for a long time. some stewards will call things a penalty, where another steward would not. so inconistent. and what did the penalty sunday do ? nothing, except let ev...

Re: 2021 British Grand Prix FP & Qualy/Sprint Thread

I thought the top 3 lap of honour after the sprint was underwhelming. They were in a huge mobile billboard, with only a letterbox opening through which to wave to the fans. And why did only Max get the laurel wreath? In the old days the top 3 all got to wear them. Yes, the entire post sprint lap of...

Re: 2021 British Grand Prix FP & Qualy/Sprint Thread

So .. now I know the exact race pace pecking order. Can't say it's made me hyped for the race tomorrow. This is the problem. Ross Brawn was saying they won't be cannibalizing the Grand Prix, but that's exactly what they've done. All of the interest of this so-called sprint was interest that it's st...

they claim it produces some 30% less turbulence for following closer, so keep the teams from messing with the air off the back

I've been thinking something similar. Bottas seems to have more bad luck when Hamilton is having a bad day. An interesting coincidence. In this case maybe not, apparently Bottas pulled up slightly short of his pit box which meant the gun went on at an angle which lead to the damaged wheel nut, Bott...

This American doesn't see why the US needs a second GP. It was more or less proven in the 1980's that multiple races -- no matter how far spaced -- were not sustainable among the fanbase in the US. COTA is a wonderful, purpose-built F1 track, with the elevation changes that make it even better. A r...
