  • Calman: Countdown working fine on my end now.  Can you tweak it to run half way into a race, so I have a chance of earning more than 10 points in the GG? lol

  • Wizzo: Countdown working for you now?

  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!

  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • 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
  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!
    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM

  • Return seriously on the cards as engine supplier from 20/21 under new engine regs, says Motorsport.com.

    Could this tip McLaren hand over new Honda deal???

  • There have been rumors of Porsche leaving the top class of the WEC. F1 might be the place for them to go.

  • The rumours have been running for two decades. By this point, I'll believe it when I see it.

  • OK here's the newest rumor, Mateschitz sells T/R to Honda, then sells R/B to Porsche, leaving F1 with a pile of cash.

  • If Honda, or anyone hoping to run a championship winning programme, were to buy STR, would they keep the current facility?  We all know that except for Ferrari that F1 championships are built in the UK:  that's where the F1 people are.  I don't know how extensive the STR facilities are compared with others.

    If Honda (or anyone else) was just buying the entry licence and building their own facility, they wouldn't need STR (unless STR costs less than a new entry, in which case whoever sells those licences is actively killing the sport by putting up a barrier to entry and devaluing investment).

    Long story short, I can't imagine Honda buying STR, especially if a rival company is going to get RBR.

    That's what Bernie Madoff thought and ask F1 fans if

    I read a book (don't remember what it's called, it wasn't very good) that posited that the 'super rich' are different, at a genetic level, that we can't understand them, they can't understand 'us', and the gap will continue to grow.

    It's an idea that would be exceedingly difficult to prove (or disprove), especially because the people funding the research wouldn't want to be labelled as 'non human'.
