Re: when, and to where, will the Ricciardo move take place?

End of May. Hopefully to Mercedes. I think DR is the only proven top tier driver available that would integrate into Mercedes and not upset LH too much. By that I mean in terms of off track rivalry (mind games, etc) mainly due to the lack of ego DR has. I think on track would be a very interesting c...

Re: 2018 F2 Season

I'm not getting off the train. Choo! Choo! I bought my ticket back in 2015 when me and my kids met him at Thruxton after he won the second MSA race that day. Initially noticed his name with the Star Wars link and that he was fairly local to us and been watching his career ever since. Great start to...

Re: Fixing a race with this VSC

One positive about the VSC it gave you something to talk about and debate :lol: The race itself was horrendous. Actually calling it a race would be a massive misnomer. **Note to self, never ever wake up early again (especially when the clocks go forward) to watch the Melbourne GP despite how excited...

I'll just leave this here.......
Sergio Marchionne

“Without being arrogant, I think it (the car) is at the same level if not better than Mercedes’ today.

“I’m sure if we’d not had any problems like in the last three races, we would be having a different discussion.”

Re: Overtakes - quantity vs quality

That said, I remember a driver saying something to the effect of "What is more memorable to a fisherman? Catching 100 goldfish? Or catching 10 great white sharks?" I have seen an interview with Eddie Irvine who quoted a very similar line to what you have mentioned. Quality for me all day....

Re: Bring on 2017 - Hopes & Fears!

Hope - Guinevere and set of balls number five are available for selecting potential race winners. (In plain English, I would like the randomness of the first half of the 2012 season again, for different race winners)

Fear - It becomes a fourth year of a fight between two drivers and one team.

Re: Potential disciplinary action against Hamilton by Merced

Storm in a teacup, or how to make a crisis out of a drama. I don't know why this is causing such concern for debate. This tactic was so inevitable and expected that Christian Horner was advocating Hamilton to do this on Thursday. Why the shock and horror about it now? Was Lewis supposed to roll over...

Re: 2017 Season - What do we think is going to happen??

No doubt this has been asked already, but..... ....if we are starting to talk about diminishing returns and equality/parity within the engine suppliers/teams, why on earth would you choose to change the rules and create the last three years all over again, especially as it could result in an even mo...

Re: The Official Lewis Hamilton thread

Common man, he can use his phone all he wants, he is polite to answer all the questions, I don't think anyone should feel dissrespected. We have a great season finale, and both Nico and Lewis have done enough to earn it, so whoever wins it, will have deserved it. I don't necessarily think Nico has ...

Re: Hamilton: "why me?"

TBH the sulk is part of the package with Hamilton. He has got a lot better though. What is the required etiquette or appropriate behavior for a driver whose engine has blown in a critical race for the championship? Is it ..... a)Should he spring out of the cockpit, say "oh darn gosh" clic...

Re: Verstappen, Vettel, Hamilton, Alonso - crash kids

ill just leave this here http://i.imgur.com/KNN4cKX.gif There is nothing wrong with Bottas' move what so ever. As the defending driver you are allowed one clear move, which as you can see from the video that he did. There is no feint of direction change (ala MV vs KR), Hamilton went for the inside,...
