Re: 2020 British Grand Prix Race Thread

Vettel absolutely dejected after the race. Couldn't be bothered to talk to anyone on the last lap or the cool down lap. It got so bad that the mechanics had to ask for a radio check to make sure it was working. https://youtu.be/0hfc713fl9o I was hoping Vettel was going to go out with guns blazing. A...

He is of course the best. If you win you are. But would he really think he is the best knowing other young guy's would challenge / beat him in different cars?

The thing is there is a big difference between out rightly cheating knowing full well that what you are doing is wrong and if found out you are going to be in a lot of trouble.

Re: Austria '20 Hamilton/Albon

I still can't see how Hamilton is to blame for this. People are saying he understeered into Albon but I see no evidence of this. The car is under control, he is on full lock around the corner and does not open the steering wheel. Additional, he's on the racing line and isn't running wide. The only p...

I've just subscribed to Sky F1 for £10 a month on a 1 month rolling contract, so I can cancel anytime.
It's valid for 12 months so I should be able to see in next season as well.
This offer should be valid to anyone who has a standard Sky TV package.

Well the two wet tyres are the intermediates and full wets and those are definitely used on occasions.
I think it was Bridgestone that had a specification called Monsoon, but I'm unsure if they were ever used.
