Re: Off-season entertainment.

I subscribe to F1TV and have been loving watching classic races from the archive.

My only gripe with the app is that it doesn't allow you to cast to your TV so you're stuck with either your phone or tablet.

Re: The Official Sir Lewis Hamilton thread

Well-overdue IMO, considering they handed out the same honour to the likes of Andy Murray (who simply won a tournament) and some cyclists who won a gold medal at an Olympics.

I really wish the MSM would drop the 'tax exile' comments though. It's getting so tiresome now.

Hulk please. To jump in the RP as he did this year and stick it in P3 at Silverstone surely proves that he'll be quick straight out of the box. Vandoorne and Gutierrez will take time to get up to speed, IMO.

Russell also deserves a shot though.
