Re: The Movie Review Thread

Just seen Bohemian Rhapsody - really, really good film. It took a bit of artistic license and altered some dates of events, missed some events, ignored others and toned down a lot of the drama (from what I know about Freddy and Queen history). But they told the story so well and the acting and cast...

Re: British Grand Prix news

As much as I'd love a London street race, I really can't see it happening. Formula e hasn't been back to London since it's first outing mainly because the residents complained about disruption and they didn't shut any streets down at all. Just imagine if half of central London was closed and not jus...

Re: 2018 U.S. Grand Prix Race Thread

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be willing Kimi on for one more moment in the sun. I don't get the Kimi love at all. He's never proved himself to be better than average. He couldn't consistently beat Massa. It's just a good underdog victory imo. You're a fellow Brit, you must love a good...

Not to win the championship though.
72pts with 75pts left, that's good enough.
2007? A smaller gap here, but Kimi made it back then.

13 seconds and 3 cars. That's a tall order even if 1 of them is his teammate. Although I wouldn't complain at a Kimi win - it's been a while!

I'm assuming they'll be pitting around lap 40 and hoping to pass Kimi on track with fresher tyres. It'll make for a good climax to the race if they do.

Re: 2018 U.S. Grand Prix Race Thread

Bit harsh on Carlos there now I've seen a replay. He gained no more than any other driver that went wide on that turn, yet he's the only one to receive a penalty cause he gained a position at the next corner.

why is quali so late? Because of the time difference. Texas is 6 hours behind the UK. But so is Mexico City. Last year, USGP qualifications were around the time of the race the following day, as it usually is at all the other venues. But this year, quali appears to be 3-1/2 hours out of sync with a...

Re: Ferrari to run new livery from Suzuka

I don't get the issue. Yes they may have tried to make the logo look like the Marlboro logo, but it isn't the Marlboro logo! Simple as that. You would have to know they are (possibly) trying to subliminally market Marlboro to see the connection. It's like the bar code they used to have in 2009/10 (c...
