Re: Channel 4 vs Sky

crofty is embarrassing and lame as hell, but in truth when has there ever been a genuinely solid and easy to listen to commentator? maybe james allen but he did that weird scream at australia some time ago. maybe now in 2017 he can tone it to modern style.

ben edwards sucks btw

Re: McLaren, Honda, 2018

If you had to place a bet on the next engine formula, what would you bet on? I think V8 turbos without the expensive and complex hybrid tech makes the most sense in terms of controling costs.
