  • 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
    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.

  • Return seriously on the cards as engine supplier from 20/21 under new engine regs, says Motorsport.com.

    Could this tip McLaren hand over new Honda deal???

  • There have been rumors of Porsche leaving the top class of the WEC. F1 might be the place for them to go.

  • The rumours have been running for two decades. By this point, I'll believe it when I see it.

  • OK here's the newest rumor, Mateschitz sells T/R to Honda, then sells R/B to Porsche, leaving F1 with a pile of cash.

  • If Honda, or anyone hoping to run a championship winning programme, were to buy STR, would they keep the current facility?  We all know that except for Ferrari that F1 championships are built in the UK:  that's where the F1 people are.  I don't know how extensive the STR facilities are compared with others.

    If Honda (or anyone else) was just buying the entry licence and building their own facility, they wouldn't need STR (unless STR costs less than a new entry, in which case whoever sells those licences is actively killing the sport by putting up a barrier to entry and devaluing investment).

    Long story short, I can't imagine Honda buying STR, especially if a rival company is going to get RBR.

    That's what Bernie Madoff thought and ask F1 fans if
    the other Bernie has enough

    I read a book (don't remember what it's called, it wasn't very good) that posited that the 'super rich' are different, at a genetic level, that we can't understand them, they can't understand 'us', and the gap will continue to grow.

    It's an idea that would be exceedingly difficult to prove (or disprove), especially because the people funding the research wouldn't want to be labelled as 'non human'.
