Re: Saudi Arabia GP a possibility for 2023

Always good to see that F1 likes to promote its sport in countries that hand out thrashings and stoning to women who've been raped. Designed by Alex Wurz with various ex F1 drivers giving it a go recently. Money, money, effing money. Bloody hell........ https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/saudi-arab...

Re: 2019 F1 driver's salaries revealed!

Even if they are wrong the scale will be about right. Is it any wonder there are issues at Ferrari when Vettel is reported to be on $56,000,000 and Charles Leclerc (Ferrari): $4,600,000 about 12 times his salary! Lando Norris (McLaren): $370,000, no wonder McLaren are pleased with him! No kidding. ...

How about as a test they add the screens and leave the mirrors for a season to see how it goes. I think this is a good idea, but until you use it in real life how would you know exactly how good it is.
