Re: Drive to Survive: Season 3

I'm 5 episodes in and feel it's definitely catered to non-F1 people. I enjoy the behind the scenes stuff but the on-track action is just laughable. The DAS in Austria clip is almost embarrassing! It's a shame they don't use the 10 episodes to focus each episode on each team and make them an hour long.

Re: Feeling Old

I've had the same feelings with the Verstappens and Schumachers. The only downside with Mick joining the grid in '21 is that his father won't be in the garage to cheer him on. Watching their dads drive flat out for years and suddenly their offspring are lining up to create their own history... it ju...

Re: Murray Walker dies aged 97.

It seems fitting that the first F1 race I watched with my dad was Monaco '92. The strange thing is, it wasn't the battle between Senna and Mansell that captivated me, it was Murray's commentary. His love for Damon was so obvious, but less annoying than the Hamilton love-fest we see from commentators...

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.
