  • 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

    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

  • 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

  • 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!

Hopefully nobody was hurt in this huge pile up. I would hate to think how much the damage will cost to repair.

Interestingly, there is no drivers briefing on youtube for the Brazil race.  I wonder if the controversy over Hamilton's admission of undoing his seatbelts on the cool down lap had anything to do with it. 

Anyhow, here are some others that are interesting and fun to watch.

Basically, there are three.  The two Sauber seats, which nobody really cares about anyway (I weep when I admit this), and the one remaining Williams seat. 

Stroll is confirmed for one, but there are 4 rumoured drivers waiting to hear about the other seat - Kubica, DiResta, Kvyat and Wehrlein.  I would choose Wehrlein, but is he old enough to satisfy Martini?

I'm a bit dismayed to hear him say it is not something they can change much before 2021.  Of course they can.  At the very least, they can tweak them. 

Teams aren't saving any money when their gearboxes blow up every race.  They will keep building and installing new gearboxes, so putting them at the back of the grid every race or two is just stupid.  Another option might be simply deducting WCC points for going over the limit on equipment.  After all, it is more effective to go after the team for installing equipment that breaks rather than penalizing the driver and confusing the fans.  That way it directly affects their income from TV money, while to the rest of us it is just a boring statistic.

I'm all for some 'new blood' added to the broadcast expertise.  I prefer they try out new things incrementally rather than overhaul the entire broadcast as is often the 'American Way'.  But change is certainly welcome.  I would like more hours of content, including a lot of behind the scenes documentaries that maybe could be only over internet or something.  But beware anything they do on the internet should be offered for free for at least an entire season before they throw a pay wall in there so we have a good idea what we want and they get a good idea of the viewership out there, and how to access it properly.

Sure, do the math anyway you like, but I think a departure would ultimately cost them, not save them a thing. 

If they closed down their F1 factory in Marenella, they would be on the hook for the debt on the building, employee contract payouts, along with any tax incentives they received to build and run it there.  Then there are sponsorship contracts, some of which surely go beyond the 2020 season.  Street car sales would dip - hard to correlate, but without a doubt there would be some effect.

I'm not one to try to convince them to stay, I just don't like the spin on this story.  I hope they leave, and make it as loud as they like.

When Alonso moves into LMP cars full time, I will likely become a regular viewer.  I think he will bring excitement to the series.  I look forward to seeing how he does.

Finally, F1 has found a way to bring racing tech to everyday life! Williams has applied F1 aero tech to your local super market milk cooler.

Williams is working with the Sainsbury's grocery folks to use F1 airfoil tech to help keep the cold air inside of their coolers. Williams has used fluid dynamics to design little fins that go on the end of the shelves. They reduce power usage by 10% to 32%, depending on the size of the fridge.

This breakthrough will be far more useful to F1 fans on this side of the pond, since we drink our beer cold.
