To an average person with basic computer knowledge, the title of this topic would suggest the 4th part of a computer video file! ... but not in this case. This video reminds us of a time when McLaren + Honda = Success!!

F1 has released the start times for the 2019 races. They will all still start at 10 minutes after the hour as a nod to the TV broadcasters. France will move back to it's normal 3:10 start time. Last season it was an hour later due to a soccer thing. Abu Dhabi and Bahrain will start late in the afternoon & finish under the lights. Singapore will still be a night race. As always, FP1 & 2 will be on Thursday in Monaco. Friday is a market day there.

Verstappen makes contact with another car in iRacing practice session, and lets the other driver know he isnít pleased.
One rival wasn't to Max's liking after on track incident in practice session, prompting the Formula 1 star to take matters into his own hands Ė as captured on Twitch by user MrGit.
E-sports has become quite a serious business, and some might think that this is a none event, but in the past other pro-drivers have had their accounts suspended for similar actions. The rules are very clear that users must not take out others, no matter the reason.
Former F1 driver Scott Speed was the last pro-driver to be banned from iRacing, having exacted revenge in a very similar manner in February 2018.
Itís unclear as yet if Max will receive the same action.

Hard to believe it's only 9 Weeks this Sunday, until lights out in Melbourne for the 2019 season opener. I think most of us would agree that the last few races of 2018 were pedestrian, seeing us simply go through the motions. However, let's hope that 2019 gives us more to cheer about, more overtaking, more inter-team battles and more edge of the seat thrills and spills.
2017/18 was mainly about the changes to the cars, but 2019 sees several experienced drivers changing teams and brings a handful of newcomers to the grid!
Will it be a season to remember? ... and end to Mercedes dominance?? ... or more competition, other than that familiar term "The Top 3".
Either way, bring it on!!!

Straight from thee official F1 website, this has to be the more frightening/strange and weird set of F1 driver photos I think I've ever seen!!! (going back many, Many, MANY!!! years).
Let's start from the top .... it looks like Danny Ric passed a wig onto Lewis, who then passed it along to Seb. From there, Seb passed it onto Kimi, who flattened it and handed it to Max. Then ... it had to be revitalised, so they did some hairdressing work on it and handed it to Carlos, but it still didn't look right, so the hairdryer came out and it was then passed along the Hulk. By this point, it started to look semi normal, so Charles got to wear it for a while - a little beaten up, but a wig that looked half natural.
While the wig was being handed around above, a film crew appeared on scene, looking for some Extras for a horror movie, so Lando was first to put on his scary movie face! ... next ... Sergio pulled his sinister face!! ... hmm, not bad ... next ... Lance had a go at the Disturbed face!!! ... interesting, but not what we are looking for ... next ... then came George ... CHILLING!!! you've got the part.
I think 4-5 drivers escaped with "normal" photos, what do you think guys?
