Constant helmet changes are driving me nuts!

OK, so I'm probably getting old, but I am bored with drivers constantly changing their helmet design. What's happened to getting a helmet that is unique to you and sticking to it throughout your time in motorsport? Now, I've no problem with slight changes to support #WeRaceAsOne or even messages of ...

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

The problem I still have with both VSC (which I think is a serious improvement over the use of the Spectacle Car) and SC, is that their use undermines the respect drivers ought to have for yellow flags. To my old-fashioned mindset, yellow flags as used in the 1980s are quite enough as a safety meas...

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

Whilst I'm in general agreement about the misuse of the Safety Car in recent years, I actually thought it was used correctly in this instance. Personally I don't like seeing marshals running on the track, particularly onto the racing line as in this instance, without the race being neutralised and ...

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

Very little, but my point was that in the two F2 races, there were passes without the need for DRS, despite all the DRS enabled passing. Of course aero wake existed before the introduction of the wings! That's precisely what the drivers exploited in the 1960s (and earlier) on long straights. What d...

Re: 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix Race Thread

Any idea whether my DRS-allergy is going to knock me out or not? (I don't mean the F2 race was one, you clearly enjoyed it.) DRS could make today's race into one of those they had in Monza during the 60's. However, at least there was plenty of passing and near passes without the use of DRS. Did dow...

At least two people saying how good the race was, when in actual fact it was a farce.

The comedy set the stage for some good racing, but don't forget this was essentially a "novelty race".

"Random Sprinklers" anyone ?

Ignoring the Mercedes mistakes, why was it a novelty?

But you can't ignore the WDC and WCC winning team making such massive mistakes, a safety car changing things a lot, plus what I believe was a puncture. All of these things made a hug...

Bahrain layout choice.

So, although I enjoy the normal layout used in Bahrain, I would personally like to see the outer circuit used next year as it's great to watch and adds variety to the sport. If only one race is to happen in Bahrain, which circuit layout would you want to be used?
