  • 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

  • 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!

  • I'm sure it's a good series for all you non British countries, however a lot of us in the homeland have lived through the events depicted and have a distrust of the over dramatic licence taken by filmmakers.

    Most of what I've read about this series pushes controversy too far for me to be interested in watching it.

    Why watch stand ins when we have enjoyed the real thing?

    There must be some people who find it fascinating watching the truth become legend right before their eyes. 

    Much like Wyatt Earp is seen as the hero of the OK Coral because he was the guy who made the first movie about it, and got to establish the legend.

  • I don't think most people alive today can remember what
    happened in the Crown from the 40's or 50's. You were just kids
    then.

    Your never to old to learn new facts.

  • Don't believe all you see in the series people, the writer, 'Peter Morgan' is a staunch Republican who says Her Majesty is a countrywoman of limited intelligence and the royal family is deranged. He needs stringing up by his thumbs and horse whipping. His ultimate goal is probably the downfall of the Monarchy.

    Nay, Nay, and thrice Nay!

    Some of us prefer to have respect for both the office of Monarch and our present Queen.

    We're well aware of the lineage of our Monarchy, but like every other resident 2nd & succeeding generations born in Britain have always been (and always will be) true Brits. Unless they themselves choose not to be, which can cause the rest of us to question  motive.

    You're correct Dare about our own memories of the 40s & 50s, however I know I prefer to rely on the handed down wisdom of my own parents and relatives rather than some concocted narrative shaped mainly for dramatic impact.

  • Like the old phrase "history according to M-G-M." Film versions aren't always accurate. My favorite example of that was the movie The Battle of the Bulge. The actual battle took place in a dense forest during a blizzard. A battle scene in that movie was filmed in a desert. My father was there for the real thing, an 18 year old infantryman in Patton's 3rd Army. I thought his head was going to explode when he saw that movie.

  • Similar Cos, my father was in the Far East in WW2, in the RAF Regiment, the 'Forgotten Army' as they were known, even in the Imperial War Museum in London there's only a tiny portion allotted to them.

  • My Dad was in the Philippines in WW2 and he had a few things to say about movies set there. He says the famous clip of MacArthur coming ashore was a fake made using a double and well after the island was secure.

  • My  Grandfather enlisted in the Marines when he was around 35 and
    served in the South Pacific. He didn't drink before but certainly did
    after. He never talked about it
