    1. I’m assuming Haas is assembling last year’s Ferrari ventilator?

      1. @sham Hope they don’t get the wrong aero philosophy.

        1. You both haha

        2. Nah it’s OK the ventilators don’t need an understanding of how to make the tyres work…

    2. So over 200.000 people were willing to watch something like that. Something that gimmicky. I wish virtual-races were also taken more seriously even if the risks are smaller than on an actual track in an actual car.

      1. @jerejj – off-topic, but I thought you were in the US, and assumed you were American. Are you not?

        1. @phylyp No, neither from the states nor in the states.

          1. @jerejj – ah, ok. My bad, wrong assumption on my part.

          2. Hey @jerejj I thought you were Finnish!

            1. @frood19 Correct. You got it right.

      2. @jerejj It interests me because that’s between a quarter, and a third, of the real F1’s audience on Sky Sports on a given weekend. Pretty impressive given all the limitations…

    3. Allow me to have a late entry to the Caption Competition based on @DieterRencken‘s drivers’ salaries article.

      Can you guys see my wallet?
