  • 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.
    November 07, 2017, 05:37:04 PM
  • 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

    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?

  • 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!

https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/14/disney-could-soon-own-sky/

Disney is buying 21st Century Fox, which is the parent company of Fox Stuidos (X-Men, The Simpsons, Planet of the Apes, distribution rights to Star Wars), numerous sports channels, and Sky TV.  (The deal does not include Fox News nor the American broadcast network).

Obviously in the context of F1, since ESPN (also owned by Disney) has American TV rights, and Sky has British (and other areas) TV rights, then that's a concentration of programming.  I would assume that this mega company would produce a single broadcast for all their English speaking markets. 

(The Canadian rights are held by TSN, which is 50% ESPN (therefore Disney), and 50% Bell Canada, so presumably we'll end up with whatever ESPN does)

I would imagine that we're looking at a few possibilities. 
  • There is less competition for TV rights, so the money Liberty gets from Disney may drop
  • There is an economy of scale:  Disney can produce a single show for millions of viewers, bringing greater quality and therefore improving the value of the product, and F1 attracts fans, sponsors and money
  • Disney may decide to just buy F1 from Liberty.  I don't know what Liberty's goals for F1 are, but if Disney is willing to up the stake 10%, then I'm sure they'd sell out in a heartbeat

 The widow of two-time Formula One World Champion Graham Hill and mother of F1 World Champion Damon Hill died Dec. 8 at the age of 91.

She was often called "The First Lady of F1." She was also quite an athlete herself. She was a member of Britain's rowing teams in 1952 and 1954, finishing third in the quadruple sculls of the Women's European Rowing Championships of 1954.

R.I.P., Mrs. Hill.

I'd rather they reviewed grid penalty use as a priority over whether to use grid girls.

At the end of the day nobody is forcing these girls against their will.

A few years ago a terror attack happened on a Thalys train travelling between Amsterdam and Paris. A couple of heroes saved the day and Clint Eastwood has made into a trademark patriotic movie.

 :-[ so the Russian press are revealing that Williams are ready to announce their new driver. I guess that means it isn't Paul DiResta  ;)
To be fair Sirotkin was the clear favourite when Williams saw what sponsorship he could bring (oh, and he was faster than Kubica).

Here's a bit of good news. The attendance at F1 races this season was up 8% over 2016. The largest percentage increase was Baku, up 58% over last year.
