  • 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

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • 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.

  • 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

Red Bull Threatens to Pull Out of F1 (Yet Again)
« on: May 18, 2017, 03:39:48 PM »

  • Red Bull is once more threatening to leave F1. This time it's over engine regs.

    Helmut Marko says,  "The idea is very simple. We want an engine that is 1,000 hp, with a single standard KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) and battery, and development does not cost more than $15 million to $20 million.

    "They should have sound and allow the driver to make the difference. And independent companies like Ilmor and Cosworth should be able to enter so that we or McLaren can use them if we want."

    It seems he's upset that Mercedes wouldn't sell them engines (After they spent an entire season trash talking Renault, who had just powered them to 3 consecutive championships.)

  • R/B was expecting to be competitive in Spain and were still 75 seconds back at the finish. Since "everybody" knows they have the best chassis, it must be the engine. Personally I think they missed on the chassis a bit this year. Sainz was complaining that the Sauber's year old Ferrari had more power. REALLY?

  • what sets F1 apart from other racing series is that it really is a team sport.  From the driver to the pit crew, mechanics, engineers, strategy directors, all of them can make the difference between winning and losing.

    I don't like that they're making the cars more and more standard.  same components in many places.  Limited components in other places.  Single tire provider, only 4 'power units' per season.  I understand the needs for cost cutting in F1, but eventually the sport will take it one cut too far, and I'll lose interest.  I won't be alone.

    Fernando Alonso is ready to walk away from the sport.  Did he go to McLaren so he could drive a car like any other, or did he go to McLaren because they were promising to take chances, to build a car that was different?  McLaren got it wrong,and it's difficult to change with the current rules.  Locking it down further like RBR wants is hardly going to appeal to top drivers.

  • I wonder if Newey will try grafting a T-Wing on the car?

  • Liberty's first crisis.  Wonder how Chase will deal with it.  Should be telling of his management style.  Divide and conquer like Bernie or diplomacy and placation?

  • How about ignore them and quietly look for new owners?
