  • 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

  • Scott: No hassle, I just thought with all the merry go round, it might be easier to simply use a couple generic slots.  But anyhow, that's great Dare.
    October 26, 2017, 06:27:38 PM
  • Dare: Hartley and Gasly have been added to GG
    October 24, 2017, 11:28:40 PM
  • Scott: Paul
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:11 PM
  • Scott: I would say we use Hartly as Jenson Button on the GG and Gasly as Paur Di Resta...any nay's?
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:03 PM
  • Scott: For example we would need to add Gasly and Hartley for Mexico
    October 24, 2017, 02:34:54 PM
  • Scott: We could add in 'Driver 1' and 'Driver 2' and then make announcements in Shoutbox to tell people which driver sub is which (in the off chance that there are two).
    October 22, 2017, 02:15:55 PM
  • Scott: Not that I think he would actually make top 8
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:30 PM
  • Scott: I wonder if we shouldn't have one or two generic driver slots for substitutions, like Hartley
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:02 PM
  • ChrisCurtis: Well that’s an interesting start!
    September 17, 2017, 01:05:06 PM
  • Wizzo: Sorry guys I won't be around for the race chat as I will be watching the race on catch up
    September 17, 2017, 10:58:19 AM
  • Scott: Only around for lap 1-2 and then have to run today, but I'll duck into chat for the first few minutes
    September 03, 2017, 12:43:44 PM
  • cosworth151: Does Alonso's 35 place grid penalty mean that he'll be starting from Parabolica?
    September 02, 2017, 10:09:21 PM
  • Jericoke: Wizzo, my strategy was that everyone else would forget so my 9 points would vault me into the mid pack.  Thanks for ruining that!
    September 02, 2017, 06:19:43 PM
  • Wizzo: Don't forget there is another race this weekend. Get your Grid Game predictions in!

  • ChrisCurtis: Good luck in the Grid Game everyone.

  • I think someone from Britain should do a proper preview for this race.  Shake a leg guys!  Tell us some history or interesting bits about the track, Silverstone, or why you still have a Queen.

  • Bottas get 5 grid spot penalty for gearbox change.

    Precisely what I'm talking about on the GG post...it would have been a shame to miss this and lose a point because of a gearbox.  I had Bottas for pole.

    So what happens now? Does Bottas  loose pole due to changing his set up slightly to suit the race rather than qualifying? It wouldn't surprise if that was what LH did hence just a third before the 8th spot on the grid.

  • It says something about the state of F1 that many of us believe that it will be very hard if not impossible for the best car in the field with one of the best drivers and on one of the best tracks to fight back from a 5 place grid penalty.

  • By the rules now whoever starts the race on pole
    is the GG pole winner.

    The turbulence from the back of the cars is huge and unless they address that the racing will not be that close.

    I was not referring to the GG Dare but how Mercedes would approach qualifying and the race but it seems Silverstone is a circuit that set up changes would make much difference.

  • Interestingly Liberty seemed to be very keen to continue at Silverstone and said they plan to have discussions at the end of the season so all is not lost and as the drivers seem to revel in the high speed turns.

  • Silverstone is one of the historic tracks that should
    never be lost. But my favorite remains Monza...might
    have something to do with the Italian milkman we had
    when I was a little kid.

    Ha ha that made me laugh!
    I quite agree there are tracks that should not be lost maybe we should start a list but you cannot add to the list with a reason!

    • Silverstone - The first ever race held at the circuit was 2nd October 1948 (RAC International Grand Prix) and then the modern era from 1952 its fast sweeping bends challenge the driver, chassis and engine to the full this years pole was an average of 152 mph/245 kph.

  • 2 Monaco  a boring  race everybody loves. Graham Hill won it
    5 times. Fasy lap set this year by Kimi with a 1m 12.178. One
    of the three crown jewels of racing,theo others being LeMans and Indy.

  • 3. Spa - It's been around since the beginning and still provides great racing. It's not the 14 km monster that it once was. Eau Rouge has gone from one of the fiercest to a flat out kink. Still, the circuit and the famous (or infamous) weather usually lead to excitement.
