Alec Glen commented on the post, Mercedes simulations say Singapore "should be one of our better tracks" 1 week, 2 days ago
Risky prediction: Stiff Merc struggles to get heat into tyres at Singapore while bouncing all over the shop.
If it’s the FIA they’d just cut a deal same as with the Ferrari fuel flow malarky. You just know that Red Bull/whoever will have them on a wording that they’re able to read in a different way, same as what they do […]

Can’t wait until we get that famous hedge fund, Porsche, involved.
At first glance what Stefano is saying is bonkers. Looking beyond that and into his actual job and the challenge they’ve got to build the sport, it does make sense.
F1’s goal is to build it’s value and the […]
I think if the regulations can bed in and converge toward a closer level of racing there’s every chance Alonso could win again. That and a bit of luck is all he needs realistically which admittedly hasn’t always […]
I guess it depends on how you define space on the inside, is it to the white line, the kerbs or the bollard?
Perez left half a car’s width to the line at the apex which left Russel on the kerbs, Russell obv […]
Hmm, in this era of F1 it’s fair to include tyre management as a key element of performance and who knows on the CoR. Maybe the drivers prefer predictable, if slow, turn-in at high speed which they’re good at this […]
Agreed although drivers can get more out of a car than a team expects or thinks possible which is kinda similar.
I think this was slightly different tbh, as in it was after he’d apexed and he then moved over to block the other exit line.
He’d have been find had he taken his line in, parked it on the apex, slowed the car […]
I hadn’t noticed this before but George being so much taller than Lewis makes the podium picture look reversed!
And yet we’ve yet to see or hear any more about the (de facto stewards replacement) race control at FIA HQ…
I’m not sure anyone is actually asking for the additional race control so it will be interesting to se […]
Alec Glen commented on the post, McLaren announce purchase of Mercedes EQ Formula E team 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Great move from McLaren who’s MO under Brown is really to sell the brand and bring partners on board. Doing this means another set of cars to sell space on and provide further value for new and existing partners […]
How is he not supposed to feel targeted? He’s the only driver with piercings and previously known to wear jewelry in the car. It’s been reported here that on conference calls, the new President of the FIA has been […]
Imagine that pit entry during a wet race, particularly with Florida’s downpours that turn on like a tap. It’d be carnage!

Are you new to F1? :D
Alec Glen commented on the post, Leclerc: 'Verstappen and I hated each other in karting' 5 months, 1 week ago
Austin did this well. Took ideas from some other tracks but added a massive hill, differentiated in some other ways.
I like the idea that a world championship should take you across different challenges via […]
Alec Glen commented on the post, Porsche and Audi move closer to F1 commitment after meeting 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Any chance we’ll only be getting a VW engine, provided to RB and McLaren under the Porsche and Audi brands specifically?
Alec Glen commented on the post, Hamilton wants FIA to make Abu Dhabi report public 7 months, 1 week ago
Same thing really. Headline at this time says that he ‘wants’ FIA to make it public, which if he’s said he ‘hopes’ they make public is correct.
Lewis couldn’t say ‘want’ as that would be perceived as ‘demands’ […]
@markzastrow I don’t disagree although rulings aren’t made in real time now either. The existing process requires a review, referral and subsequent investigation whilst the race continues. The way I look at this […]
Often with these statements it’s the things that are not said that can be the most telling. In this case Masi had to go, he repeatedly made mistakes that he couldn’t blame on an external process/factor. Setting up […]
