  • 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.

Vettel moves up another notch in my books

    Count me amongst the F1 fans who loved to hate Vettel's entitled attitude when he was winning championships.

    However, in the following years, I've learned more about Vettel, and I like him more and more.  He's apparently a great guy behind closed doors.  He values everyone on the team.

    And now he's lost his patience for F1 reporters asking "s***" questions trying to manufacture a story.  Not everyone can win a race and still find the gusto to chew out someone trying to make their rival look bad.

    Well done Seb!  :good:

  • Nice...I have to agree.  Even publicly, Seb has become much easier on the ears and eyes.  Iím starting to wonder if Mark Webber wasnít really the dickhead behind the scenes at RBR during their years together, or Vettel has turned a new leaf.   ;) ;)

  • I think nearly all drivers try things now that the drivers of 40 or 50 years ago would not have tried, because the cars and circuits today are so safe there are few consequences if it doesn't work. Max should have known Lewis of all people wasn't yielding in that situation. Drivers are supposed to leave a car width in passing attempts, but how often do you see them drive right over someone's nose? And after all the times Lewis ran Nico off the outside of a corner, many times at this very track, he should not remark about lack of respect. Compared to the legends of years gone by, I have little liking for most of today's drivers.

    I'm pretty sure it's more a case of Vettel turning over a new leaf ... or simply maturing and being comfortable in his own skin.  Maybe learning some Italian helped his case!  :DD

    Seriously though, I also loved to hate him in the RB days, but apart from a few isolated incidents, he carries himself in a much better way over the last 2-3 years.

    All the best,
    Cal :)

  • I think Seb has mellowed a bit with age. Good on him.

    Also, I wonder how many F1 people don't care much for Max.

  • I do think he has matured/mellowed quite well in the last couple of years.  He seems to know instinctively, when to be serious, when to joke and when to criticise!

    ... however, I still think he runs like a girl (thinking back to the podium switch with Max).

    All the best,
    Cal :)
