Re: Are these new 2017 cars a complete failure?

New formula is a success in my opinion for similar reasons above. Yes there are less overtakes but they're more suspenseful and meaningful. Vettel attempting to reel bottas in last night in the final stint was more exciting to me than 30+ tyre advantage overtakes that happen so fast that the broadca...

Re: 11-year old dead after karting accident

I raced 100cc karts at roughly this age, perhaps 12 or 13. I don't ever remember a time where i felt in over my head or without control, though it only took one race for my mother to decide she was never coming to watch again. I agree with the comments above though that a 12 year old now looks like ...

Re: 2017 Australian Grand Prix Race thread

In the Aus broadcast they're not showing current track order, they were missing in q3 & q2 as well, and then didn't show times in q1, only the order.

It's pretty damaging to the experience, without that info it's just cars driving in a circle.

Re: Rightio. Who's it gunna be??

Button recently retired from the motorsport of Formula 1 following the 2016 Formula 1 season. Button has always been a solid comedian. That was essentially due to the lack of an available and competitive seat though. I mean if Alonso takes the Merc seat as everyone suggests it likely means Button w...

Re: [SHOWER THOUGHT] DRS alternative

The problem with following closely isn't just that you loose some front downforce. Because the air is all hot and swirly once it comes off the car infront, the front wing cant deflect it anywhere near as well as it is designed to, and the air just goes wherever it wants as it passes over the car.

[SHOWER THOUGHT] DRS alternative

Instead of 'disengaging' a bit of wing down the straights to compensate for the inability to pass around corners due to the disruptive air when following another car, could you instead have a chunk of extra wing 'engage' when cornering closely behind another car in an attempt to account for the lost...

Re: Magnussen to Replace Maldonado?

Kevin always seemed like a nice kid, and someone who would speak their mind with the media and had a fun/witty side. At the very least it's one more personality on the track, say what you want about Maldonado's driving but it's hard to argue that he had any kind of personality.
