  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • Hero's

    Lewis for a perfect weekend.
    Bottas for a great fightback  from ninth to another podium, they must keep him!
    Ricciardo last but one to fifth was a great drive.
    Perez for not whinging about not being able to pass Ocon.
    Stewards for not giving a penalty to Max and Set.

    Zero's

    Kvyat who is next on his list for crashes?
    Seb "Does he think its bumper cars" was ironic coming from him.
    Kimi for managing to look a misery all weekend.

    Worthy of a mention.
    Silverstone for putting on a great event.
    Billy Monger for looking happy with his lot.

  • ^^^^ Have to agree^^^^
    Like him or not, Hamilton was in a class of his own. Dominating the weekend and popping in a fastest lap just for fun!
    Why can't more drivers be like Ricciardo. Smiles when things are good, smiles when things are bad. Excellent drive!
    I still cannot decide if Palmer has what it takes but when the car doesn't even finish the warm-up lap what chance does he have to prove himself.
    Alonso should go into politics - in front of the camera he makes his point but always avoids rubbishing the team or the engine manufacturer when inside he must be fuming!!
    Finally, I thought the laggard did a fairly good job :)

    Pretty sure that was Max...but still ironic.  :D :D

    Agree with all that has been said, but would have to add in the Zero column Ferrari cars and Pirelli tires for both cars to have the same sort of delamination at the same time seemed odd.  Maybe they simply pushed them exactly over the limit.  For a few minutes I was happy Kimi managed to get back his podium after the stop, but when I saw him pouting on the podium, I was less pleased with the result.  I would be thrilled to be on a podium after having an emergency pit stop with 2 laps to go.  Grow up, Kimi. 

    Race was exciting for the first few laps and the last few laps.

  • I agree completely with what's been said here.

    The stupid Ferrari punctures cost me two more spot on places in the Grid Game mind. I reckon there's a conspiracy LOL  :DD

    I wonder if there's some background politics affecting Kimi's demeanor. It seems odd even by his standards to have such a sulk on.

  • Chris maybe Monaco p*ssed him off more than some
    thought. At his age wins would be hard to come by and
    Monaco was one he had a shot at. You may win by a team
    order but deep down you know you didn't deserve it. Seems
    the German's don't feel that way!

  • Heroes:

    Lewis Hamilton - for completely dominating the whole thing. I'm willing to put up with Lewis being annoying many times if he puts out weekends like this occasionally.

    Daniel Riccardo - for a brilliant fightback from the back row of the grid.

    The "Walk In The Fast Lane" team - a group of mechanics and other F1 staffers, who walked 150 miles for charity, visiting every British F1 team on the way, and ending up at Silverstone in time to do their usual weekend jobs.

    Honourable mention: am I allowed to mention Charles Leclerc's F2 feature race performance? He started the race with a brake disc on fire, had an exhaust on fire so badly it looked as if the engine had blown, lost a wing mirror and still won. I've heard of drivers winning races with a bad car but it's rare to have a driver winning with apparently no car left...

    Zeroes:

    Liberty - for complaining about Silverstone exercising its rights to break a contract at the point the previous administration required that to be done, and further compounding the situation by claiming it made a profit on the previous year's Grand Prix when it was actually a substantial loss. This is Liberty's first significant error.

    Daniil Kyvat - What was that all about? Carlos Sainz might very well ask the same question. Granted that Carlos could have used a bit more spatial awareness, but he wasn't the one who tried the impossible move or rejoined the track in a dangerous manner.

    The Sauber drivers - for colliding with each other, which Sauber needs about as much as it needs a paper dragon feeder. Lower than Daniil Kyvat since blame appears to be applicable to both parties about equally.

  • I'd like to recognise those engineers at Merc who were working 24/7 to correct their balance. They seem to have succeeded admirably. The Mercs had a clear advantage over the Ferraris at Silverstone. Wasn't huge, but it was there.

  • It was a great spectacular event to watch and Hamilton gave a master class in how to dominate.  When he is in this form he is pretty much unstoppable.  I was also very impressed with Bottas who continues to impress more as the season progresses.  He had an iffy start, but now it's clear that he is doing the kind of job required to get his contract extended.

    Raikkonen was unlucky to get a puncture, but that didn't excuse his podium sulk.  I thought that was disappointing behaviour.  I do wonder whether something else was going on in the background between him and Ferrari.  Vettel was a bit lacklustre this weekend too.  He was lucky that the puncture he had didn't take off his front wing.

    It was another good weekend for Force India and a promising performance from Hulkenburg, but McLaren still don't have reliability from that Honda engine.  They'll be hoping for better in Hungary.

    I think that Kvyat may well find that his contract isn't renewed for next season if he continues to make mistakes, while Palmer, for all his mechanical troubles, just doesn't seem to quite have the pace at this level.
