Re: Peasant Fans 1st: The official BBC viewers' thread

1. How to follow a GP when it's not being televised live? Do we listen to the radio coverage, or avoid all media until the race is replayed on TV? We got rid of Sky last September and since then I'd been waiting for the highlights show on BBC. Over the course of this season though, I've grown fed u...

Re: Vettel v Ricciardo 2014 watch

Even as an Aussie and a Ricciardo fan I get sick of all the Vettel bashing. Nothing will take away his 4 x WDC's, so it's probably better just to focus on the stellar job Dan is doing. I dont think anyone is trying to invalidate Seb's titles. But there has been a perception for a long time he as a ...

Re: 2014 Spanish Grand Prix Race Thread

Seb's qualifying troubles robbed us of what would probably have been a tasty battle with Ricciardo which, after waiting 3 long weeks to see if Seb could bounce back, is a shame.

The race was pretty dull until the end, though.

Re: Redbull Believe Vettel's chassis is faulty

If this is all about helping Seb psychologically, the extent of Marko's comments and openness about it is baffling. Seb would look silly enough as it is if the new chassis made no difference and his performance woes couldn't be attributed to that, but the way Marko's going on about how he may even t...
