Alec Glen commented on the post, Rate the race: 2021 British Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying 1 week, 3 days ago
If the cars could follow closely it could be great fun. There’s huge value to the fans in the grandstands also, completely changes their weekend for the better.
The length might need tweaking depending on what […]
Masi: “Don’t talk to me about consistency, we’re here to support the show and this week the director wanted to see a fight between the Red Bulls and Mercs.”
Also Masi: “I’ve no understanding of racing, I even […]
This looks spot on.
Honda and Red Bull said they were throwing everything into this engine which I think is actually the ’22 engine brought forward a year since the exit decision. They’ll have been running it […]
Alec Glen commented on the post, Alonso: F1 rule to 'improve the show' helps the big teams 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Was a better rule tbf but they changed it as they had to give the Q3 teams another tyre to ensure they get two runs in. At that point they should’ve taken it out completely rather than make it the Q2 tyre which […]
@proesterchen I think you’re missing the bigger picture. Yes, car manufacturers are slowly going to move away from ICE as soon enough it won’t be the cheapest/most convenient way to move people around the place. […]

He’s bang on imo. The rules were designed for a grid that would be much closer in pace (think pre-2009) in which having fresher tyres would’ve let 11+ either overcut the top 10 or be able to lean on the tyres to […]
Alec Glen commented on the post, Is stamping out 'burn-out' celebrations a killjoy over-reaction? 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Last-gasp chance for Masi to make the papers, he seems desperate to do/say something every week.
Look at the lap times in Pirelli’s first year to the previous season and factor in that was with DRS added for the first time and with Pirelli being tasked with providing softer tyres they should’ve been seconds a […]
@tifoso1989 Boxing is the absolute worst!
It’s not minor technical infringements of a 3000 page rulebook either. It’s “my fighter will not lose a round until at least the 8th”, “this fighter will not lose by […]

It’s the epitome of Merc’s strategy woes since Brawn left and Paddy took over. Understand they’ve been hugely successful but there’s a consistent deficit to Red Bull on strategy and pit stops.
There seems to […]
Well put, I think it’s worth remembering that Ferrari and Red Bull are quite different adversaries though. For all the performance Ferrari were able to bring to those seasons initially, they’ve not looked like a […]
I liked this, even if it didn’t line up with what the director was showing on track but Masi needs to talk less. Every week he talks either complete waffle to get out of a tricky spot that he’s created himself or […]
Alec Glen commented on the post, Not just a fans' pipe dream: Why live F1 should return to free TV 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Liberty have to be looking at the NFL as the best example of how to maximise tv revenues. The numbers they’re able to generate both in viewership and pure dollars are insane. They’ve just signed a set of deals […]
Everyone lamenting the point for fastest lap being a failure already. Has anyone actually seen a breakdown of the numbers of viewers switching off before the end of the race?
I understand that currently it’s a […]
Red Bull are very much “Go hard or go home” and they’re going very hard indeed.
Alec Glen commented on the post, Vettel surprised by rolling restart decision despite damp track 3 months, 1 week ago
I think looking back over the past year Masi has been consistent, he’ll make a decision based on what’s best for the show and use whatever legalese available to justify it during the following week.
I expected […]
In my mind the white lines are there for guidance, specifically when assessing the cutting the inside of corners. On the outside I’d put the onus on circuit owners/designers to make them not look like muppets on […]

I’ve not got much sympathy with Williams tbh, I’m not sure how they could expect Netflix to cover their “big story” without having access to the key messaging. It’s hard to create drama using 2nd hand info or a […]
