  • 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

  • Greg_82: Hello

  • 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
    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!
    September 01, 2017, 11:24:03 AM
  • ChrisCurtis: Good luck in the Grid Game everyone.

  • Such a shame that Brundle was taken ill just before the start of the British GP and couldn't take part in the mini feature about his 20 years of the grid walk. Even more so that he missed the presentation of the golden microphone that Damon Hill accepted from Ross Brawn on his behalf.

    Lewis hit the nail on the head, Brundle is the Murray Walker of this generation. His no nonsense knowledgeable approach is something I really enjoy on race weekend.

    I hope he gets well soon.

  • Sorry to hear he is ill.  Hope it is something minor.

    Not really a fan of his, but then I wasn't really a fan of Murray's either.  I used to turn the volume down when Murray got too excited.   |-( |-(

  • He was on Twatter early this morning explaining that he had been suffering from a stomach virus. He seems to be OK now so nothing serious.
    I like Brundle but Sky & F1 handed the microphone over to Jenson Button a few times during official coverage and he was great - Martin better be careful :)
    DiResta did a good job with Crofty in the Sky comms booth.

    I agree, Button did a great job. I never really rated him much as a driver, but as a presenter his enthusiasm transmitted to the viewer. After qualifying in particular, Coulthard recognised Button was doing well and sensibly left Button to it.

    Seeing Simon Lazenby and Ted Kravitz bumbling around trying to do an emergency grid walk on race day was funny though. Lazenby in particular was like a rabbit in the headlights. The bit where he spoke to Alonso especially  :o

    Go wash your mouth out! That is the future winner of LeMans you are referring to!

  • I hope that Brundle has recovered.  He has had some health issues lately and I still miss his commentary and input while watching the terrestrial coverage.
