Heroes/winners/ whatever you stroke on here. Hehe

Zeros/Losers stroke what ever you don't wanna stroke on here...

Yeah, we go with Heroes and Zeroes.  Don't try to fix it if it ain't broken.

IN MY OPINION hero is too much of a strong word to use for an F1 driver. Now I really like baby cakes (Fernando Alonso) but he isn't my hero. A hero for me is someone who goes above the call of duty for no personal gain.

It's just a form of words Alonsofan to distinguish between those who've done good or done bad.
We're certainly not trying to anoint deities, identify saints or be kingmakers.  :nono:

It's traditional to this site and IMHO seems much better than calling it Winners and Losers or Good drives/Bad drives.
It also allows for members to include the teams, track marshals, FIA & FOM, race stewards, tyre supplier etc etc.

Winners/Losers also covers all those areas too without beefing it up too much.

Champs/Chumps has a nice ring to it.
You could keep the rhyme and say Winners and Sinners.
All means the same to me

That's what a few other sites use, but for me having more than one winner at a GP makes as much sense as having all runners up instead of losers.

We've used Heroes/Zeros for years without anyone beefing it up. Although many times the Zero comments have gotten rather acerbic and possibly malevolent.  :D

Ferrari flew LeClerc's engine to Maranello for analysis and discovered a short in the fuel injection's electronics. A first. They will repair the unit and re-install the engine for Shanghai.
