  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!
    April 10, 2018, 02:17:21 AM
  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.
    April 09, 2018, 10:24:22 AM
  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM

    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM

    January 27, 2018, 08:17:01 PM
  • Scott: Nice score getting an Amazon ad up there, Wizzo!   :good:
    January 03, 2018, 05:39:05 PM
  • 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

Heroes:

Ricciardo.  No 7th gear from lap 30-something as well as no electric boost.  Couldn't have done that on any other track, but still a remarkable accomplishment.  He was lucky the RBR is kinder to its tires than the Ferrari or it could have ended differently.  Proved once again that any discussion of who the #1 driver at RBR is, and should remain, should end.  RBR must put Max in as a support role, and if he doesn't like it, he can go and wreck someone else's cars.

That said, Verstappen did a good job managing 6 decent overtakes (the rest were gifted him by incidents or pit stops), which are rather difficult on Monaco.  Only in this situation did his wrecker reputation cause the cars ahead of him to decide to block or not.  I think he had marching orders to bring the car home, and bring in at least a point.  He managed 2.

Vettel for keeping Ricciardo honest the entire race.  Something happened at the end, but I think we all agree by then it was too late anyway.  He may have as well. 

Hamilton.  He fell back for a while and spent WAY too much time whining about if the tire choice was ideal, but he stayed ahead of Kimi, and that was all he could do.

Honerable mention to Ocon and Gasly, who both stayed clean and brought their cars in where they may not have belonged.

Leclerc, just because he was probably going to finish in his first hometown GP until the faulty brakes of the STR ended his day.

Zeroes

I put Max here anyway, just because he shouldn't be starting 20th.  Silly boy.

Stroll, for being a bit snotty with his team on the radio (all weekend), and not being able to figure out what is wrong with your car when your front tire is flat.  I know they sit a bit low in the car, but surely you can feel that it was a tire, especially right after you hit another car with that tire.

The Princess for fake drinking out of the offered champagne bottle after the Prince took a good slug.  2ndly for being visibly disturbed by Ricciardo drinking bubbly from his shoe. 

Hartley's brakes, for failing at the moment when he couldn't avoid taking out Leclerc, although he did a pretty good job trying not to hit him.

Alonso's gearbox.  'nuff said. 

Great turnout on chat today.  It was fun to see the usual crowd for the most part.

You've probably already heard about the new data protection law that came into force on May 25th 2018.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy. More information about the new law can be found here: https://www.eugdpr.org

We have changed our Privacy Policy in line with the new regulations and you will need to accept the new policy to continue to use GPWizard in the normal way.

To make things easy for you I have added new GDPR options to your account. From your account profile you can now export all the data that we hold on you, edit it and if necessary delete it.  You can obviously subscribe and unsubscribe from our newsletter at anytime.

If you have any questions then please send them to info@gpwizard.co.uk

Many thanks

Once again Max gives his mechanics a hell of a job at Monaco, same place as two years ago as well.   |-(

The FIA fitted a new piece of hardware to Ferrariís ERS system ahead of FP1 in Monaco to ensure there were no loopholes being exploited in the carís energy deployment after concerns were raised by Mercedes non-executive director Niki Lauda.

Ferrari claims that this smoke on start up is just a consequence of oil leakage through the seals when the turbocharger unit is cold, as the turbo heats up the seals lock tight and leaked oil burns off.

This has lead others notably Merc to suggest this oil burn is not accidental, the FIA has not ruled against it - yet.

However is there another explanation for this billowing smoke, could Ferrari be taking an even bigger leap than anyone has previously suggested with a 2 stroke/4 stroke ICU?   :swoon:

The well known engine management systems specialist Ricardo has been pursuing 2 stroke/4 stroke knowledge in the last few years.
