  • 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: 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.

  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!

  • I wonder who will jump in to take
    their place?

    http://www.planetf1.com/news/ferrari-to-lose-santander-sponsorship-report/

    I was always surprised they stuck around so long after Alonso.  Not many sponsors pay enough money to pay a world champion to sit out for two years like they did with Kimi.

    I presume they're headed to McLaren (assuming they stick around F1, which isn't a given)

    As for a replacement, I doubt Ferrari will have much trouble there.  I'd like to see them bring some new sponsorship to F1, I'm still surprised how under represented tech companies are in the sport.

    If RB can sponsor a team I don't see any reason Coke or Pepsi
    couldn't. McDonald's has stores the worldwide but haven't Ronald
    McDonald plastered on a car would be a sad sight

  • I'd pay good money to see the Ferrari pit crew dressed up like Ronald. Bet their big shoes get caught under the tires.

    Have you ever seen The Founder?  It's a recent movie about Ray Croc, the man who made McDonald's into the corporate empire it is today.  He had a lot in common with Bernie, and I wouldn't be surprised if Croc's acolytes would never be able to come to an accord with Bernie over sponsorship.

    Well I would, since Bernie is now F1 history. The head honcho now for marketing is Sean Bratches. Not sure he either can or will help teams engage with new sponsors.

    Liberty is in a position to repair any bridges that Bernie burned.  I just know that global brands like McDonald's and Coke have the ability to push around any organisation they sponsor, so I can see why Bernie wouldn't deal with them (and vice versa)
