Re: The F1 thread

Pirelli are testing the 2021 low profile 18 inch wheels & tyres. Looks good I think, contemporary :-k Although I do think the black wheel and tyre possibly disguises the change somewhat. Not a particular fan of Sirotkin but it’s always good to see drivers who haven’t managed to secure a race seat st...

Re: The F1 thread

Tbh I couldn’t believe it when he just instantly pulled back onto the track. My first thought was it deserved a ban... then Lance did exactly the same thing... Bizarre. They seem to talk almost constantly to the pit wall, the pit wall have GPS driver tracking available, they use it to plan pit stops...

Re: The F1 thread

Well, so much for Charles being behaved. The cynic in me thinks that if he weren't driving a Ferrari at Monza, he'd have had more than one penalty at that race. Forcing Hamilton off the track and later cutting a chicane were both very much on the edge of acceptable. I was surprised at how quickly a...

Re: The F1 thread

From the radio transcripts it appears Leclerc was supposed to tow Vettel but ignored the order. Vettel kept asking the pit wall to tell Leclerc to get on with it but he never did... So is Charlie de facto team lead at Ferrari now? I wonder what this will do to the relationship between them? Dry for ...

Re: The F1 thread

Heh, people ask for unpredictability and there it is... It was ridiculous but most were looking for a tow as they already had a decent banker in. Ferrari had Leclerc on pole, Merc had Ham on the front row. FOM will use this debacle as leverage to try a qualifying race here next year. I think it also...

Re: The F1 thread

I think he means that Max's steering was broken but he still accelerated up the hill. It was notable given that we'd seen a deadly accident there just a few hours before. Max surely knew the damage was there as everything would have felt wrong. Yeah. I can’t find a replay but he seemed to be on ful...

Re: The F1 thread

I’m not sure they can extend the run off at Raidillon much, I suspect the terrain falls away to the right. I do question if the changes made to Eau Rouge, the straightening and adding tarmac run off to the left, have made it safer. In the past the drivers approached it with respect, now its viewed a...

Re: VR!

Nice review. I have a DK2 (bought boxed and unopened off eBay for £99...) that I mess around with from time to time, it might be time to retire it.
