  • 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.

Author Topic: Danny Ric's move will put him near top of F1 driver salaries  (Read 419 times)

Offline John S

I've heard other reports of £20m a year mentioned but it's now suggested the deal is $35m (about £27m).
For Renault it's so big it had to get top executive approval.

He'll probably get paid more than Nando.  ;)

Wages like that can turn a fella's head.  :swoon:
I'm sure that'll be a real comfort if he never wins a WDC.  :D

  • He's one of the best now so yeah, he should be getting close to the best paid drivers.  For his sake I hope it's not the Alonso curse part 2 though!

  • We know the Renault is a decent power unit, the only question is if Renault can bring something more to the car. 

    We also know the Honda is still fragile, and RBR are known for engineering to the ragged edge, so can they deliver as fast a car while still preserving the Honda engine? 

    I would say itís a 50/50 gamble, so if the only difference was $25m more in Danielís pocket, I would think it would be an easy decision.

  • I think the $25m is the key here.  Danny had a look around and realised next season there are only going to be two teams with a chance of winning a race: Mercedes and Ferrari.   

    Red Bull will struggle with Honda (Torro Rosso haven't exactly improved), McLaren are rubbish with the Renault as we all the Honda, Force India are bankrupt, Sauber will always be near the bottom of the pack (unless outdone by Williams  :( ). That leaves Haas or Renault. Better choose a works team I guess...

    I wonder if he had a chat with Ferrari, but I guess he would rather receive $25m into his pension pot, than play second fiddle to Vettel.

    Not much of a choice really in the end...

  • RBR & Honda is the smart move with the information they have from TR and Honda's commitment its going to be a winning combination. Honda have come a long way from it McLaren days which I feel was not the best option for Honda and McLaren are hardly setting the time sheets alight.
    Is DR worth the money? Comparing him to Seb and Lewis is not right as they were both world champions when jumping ship and history for Lewis shows it was the right move and like both of the it'll only be time that tells if its the right move and pay for him.
