accidental mick commented on the post, Poll: Should F1 keep its superlicence points system? 1 year, 4 months ago
I quite like the idea that drivers have to “earn” their way into F1.
However, somewhat obviously, open wheel racing is very different to closed wheel racing. I would like to points awarded only by the […]
I don’t take a lot off interest in statistics (lies, dammed lies and statistics) but I have never understood how Hulkenberg built up his fan base. He has always been a mediocre driver and I am surprised he lasted […]
We have this discussion many times before and I am still going to say that it is a retrograde step.
Once the ground effect is broken, even , as mentioned by AliceD above, something as simple as running a kerb, […]

I can understand why everybody behind the scenes loves Monaco especially sponsers) of because of the whole glamorous scene.
In olden days when my mate Noah and I went to as many GPs as we could, not every race […]
I wonder why, if the engineers were certain they knew the problem, Mercedes didn’t call Hamilton into the pits. They could have had an engineer waiting ready to change to the correct setting in an instant. This […]

I haven’t heard that phase in years – makes me quite nostalgic.
I absolutely agree, it seemed to be the most boring track of the season.
The driver was described as a “racer”. Well he might be but certainly not in cars! On almost every straight he lifted and coasted and […]
I’ll say right from the start that I quite like the Red Bull aeroscreen. OK, you cannot see the driver very well but with the high cockpit sides, your cannot see much of the driver anyway.
My son was killed (in […]

I am 72 years old. I have watched F1 since I was 8 years old (it wasn’t called F1 then). I thought at the end of last season that 2016 might be the last season. The evil dwarf is like a lot of senile people, […]
As I post this I am aware that I’m in a bad mood – I have had my share of time-wasting idiots today and is is not yet 11am.
It is mostly aimed at people who do not have English as a first language. If an […]

I was kucky enough to go to there in 2013 and found it a wonderful experience. We had seats in the grandstand overlooking the first corner and I would recommend this to anyone. We were surrounded by Italians who […]
It has just occurred to me that America has an F1 circuit with other circuits that just need an upgrade to make the grade. They now also have a team and some drivers. There are some pretty shrewd business men in […]
A couple of points from my dotage.
I was very excited when I first saw Bottas in a practice session. I selected him as my rookie of the year in his first season. However, in a couple of races this season, he has […]
