  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!

  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.
    November 07, 2017, 05:37:04 PM
  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

JB 2018?

  • I personally don't think JB will come back to a full season although how he does in Monaco may sway him and/or teams to tempt him back

  • If Alonso does well at Indy, he might try again, or other drivers might give it a shot.  JB could just run as a Monaco fill in.

  • I'd love to see Jenson get another shot in a competitive car. Of course, that has nothing to do with McLaren-Honda.

    As for Alonso, I think he's had it with McLaren-Honda. He also want a shot at LeMans.

  • That's the decider he'll not come back unless it has the potential for wins and that reduces the options.

  • I think you will only see JB presenting F1 now, with the obvious exception of Monaco. Would make a good team with Coulthard.

  • He's said Monaco is a one time occurrence. If he was on a winning tean he
    never would have retired

    I do hope so....excellent pairing although given the limited time now that C4 will be covering this then I guess Sky TV will get him.

  • JB is talking about Le Mans & NASCAR:

    "For me, I would like to do Le Mans one day. I think it would be a great experience, a great team atmosphere. Obviously it has to be the right opportunity like Nico [Hulkenberg] had. I would like to race in NASCAR – I think that would be fun. I went along to one of the races this year; Jimmie Johnson invited me and I had a great time. I loved seeing the show as it is, and it's very different to other motorsport. Equally, it's a challenge, it's a massive challenge. Who knows?"

  • Open wheel drivers haven't accomplished much in NASCAR.
    Ask Juan or Patrick.Hornish tried it too and I haven't heard where he's
    at mow.

    I know: Tony Stewart went to NASCAR and only won three championships.  Open wheel guys can't catch a break  :crazy:

  • Yeah I see your point.Juan Pablo,Dana,Robby Gordon,Sam Hornish,and
    Sarah Fisher tore up NASCAR. Stewart and Gordon are exceptions and
    I'm sticking to most open wheel drivers don't fare well in stock cars.

    Most open wheel racers go to NASCAR when they can't find a competitve ride in the open wheel series, which means they're already on the downslope of their career.  NASCAR looks simple, but you really do need to be at the top of your game to do well there.  I don't think openwheelers are at a disadvantage per se, they're just usually not at the right part of their career. 

    It would be the same if fender drivers moved to openwheels.  The best would do great in their prime, but as they lose their edge on the ovals, they'll also lose them on open wheels

  • I wouldn't say Stewart was on the downside of his career or
    Hornish as he had just won the 500. Patrick is another story
    is to me she's sponsor money. How many stock car drivers
    have successfully made the switch to open wheel? I can't think of any
