  • Scott: Fraid I won't be around for the season final...we have groups at the hotel lunch and dinner and we are moving Monday am, so barely a minute to sit down...perhaps I can pop in for a minute or two at some point.

  • 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
    November 06, 2017, 12:30:40 PM
  • 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!

  • If they run this on the streets of Amsterdam it could bring a whole new meaning to the Red Lights going out!

  • A great track is available but they're looking at yet another pretty building parade. Sadly typical. To quote The Who, here's to the new boss, same as the old boss.  :'(

  • Totally right. Zandvoort is a great track while round the houses racing has lost much of its charm.

    Is Zandvoort up to date for running an F1 race?  It's been a while, and plenty of former F1 tracks would need to be refit to host F1 again.  Is someone willing to make that investment, especially if F1 fans may depart once Max-Mania fades?

    On the other hand, a street track has much more infrastructure in place and more pockets feeding the total bill.

    I prefer purpose built tracks too, but I'm not prepared to pay for them.

    Last I heard, the owners were trying to do so.

  • The track itself is in pretty good shape, but of course the palaces paddock needs sprucing up.
