  • 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!

  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!

F1 shows three car concepts for new era 2021 era

  • Hmmm! going a bit Indycar especially with the no 3.  ::)

    And what are those huge sticky out bits behind front wheels and in front of rear wheels on concepts 2 and 3? Surely they're only going to add multi $millions to the aero budgets as big teams try to outdo each other in new areas, thought they were trying to cut costs.  :confused:

  • Even though the look of a modern F1 car is regulated to the millimeter, the basic design hasn't changed much in years.  While Fangio might not recognise a modern F1 car, James Hunt certainly would.  Front and rear wings, side pods, mid engine... these were all changes done to gain an advantage.  I miss that aspect of the sport.

    Maybe for 5 years instead of cookie cutter cars designed to fit templates, just let the teams do whatever they want.  There will be some great new ideas, as well as some awful ones.  The sport will leap forward, and our idea of a 'racing car' will will too.  Certainly cost is a factor, but it's cheaper to try something unique than simply test 100 slightly different variations on the same thing everyone else is doing.

  • I agree with you Jeri and disagree at the same time!
    Opening the designs up would also open the cheque books and a line has to be drawn somewhere or we'll also end up going backwards as in traction control, ABS, double chassis and blown diffusers along with anything else that the Wizzo wiz kids come up with.
    The costs would become astronomical and drive participants away the likes of Williams or Sauber could not survive in that culture but where do we go?
