Exactly, I can’t think of a more corrupt sport than boxing and I have been following closely many sports since a very young age (Football, F1, MotoGP, Tennis, Basketball, American Football, Boxing…). […]
@alec-glen Mercedes generally do a good job with the strategy I think, although it’s easy to be brilliant when the car is good. In Monaco the car was slow and apparently eating the tires, which limited their […]
Well put @alec-glen, while Red Bull in previous years had a car that usually wasn’t quite there (at the start of the seasons), given an opportunity they always could be counted on to take it, while Ferrari might […]
Ben Rowe commented on the post, Formula 1 upgrades official streaming service F1 TV Pro 3 months, 1 week ago
Well, I shouldn’t have said freeview was “just as” advanced, but I was aware it was 1080I and that is close enough that is is still pretty shocking that paytv now isn’t better than it is.

@alec-glen I’m sure you’re right but that’s F1 for you though, and at the same time AA is their reserve driver and simulator man, so lol he might even have, or have had during the off-season a hand in progressing […]

@alec-glen here it was actually angled a bit towards the track to give space for the access route behind it – of course, theoretically it could be made the way you say, with the barrier later on the straight […]
Ben Rowe commented on the post, Two-day weekend format isn't suitable for every grand prix – Wolff 7 months ago
I have to say i partly disagree. When I flick through the highlights, Channel 4 with this pair often highlight a whole load of things that Sky didn’t notice. The opposite also does happen though, but […]
GeeMac commented on the post, Latifi: Imola an improvement after "worst race of the year" in Portugal 7 months, 2 weeks ago
@alec-glen I don’t agree with the first paragraph of your comment (respectfully). It had been 12 years since we lost Ricardo Paletti (the then last driver to die in an F1 race) and 8 years since we lost Elio de […]

In addition to what @alec-glen writes, note that the article has this bit I actually suggested this in a drivers’ briefing earlier in the season
(emphasis mine) ie. it’s not something he cooked up after one bad r […]
Jere commented on the post, Replacing Albon with Gasly "wouldn't make sense" for Red Bull 9 months, 1 week ago
@alec-glen I doubt they’d go for an outsider to the Red Bull family, especially if Tsunoda becomes eligible to race in F1 next season by reaching the minimum amount of super license-points needed.
Jere commented on the post, Why "insanely fast" Mugello could be F1's next-best thing to Suzuka 9 months, 1 week ago
@alec-glen I saw some start footage from a lower category at one point, and nothing special in it, so I doubt there’s going to be anything unusual in F1 either.

@alec-glen Fair and accurate comment, imho.
Rhys Lloyd commented on the post, Ban on 'quali modes' to be delayed until the Italian Grand Prix 10 months ago
@alec-glen I’m sure I read somewhere that Toto Wolff had indicated that their quali-mode equates to 25 laps of engine life—meaning they’d be able to run higher performance during the race.
Keith Campbell commented on the post, Ban on 'quali modes' to be delayed until the Italian Grand Prix 10 months ago
@alec-glen Yeah that trading off reliability for performance comment is pretty strange. There are a tonne of things on the car that trade reliability for performance – everything from engine to suspension, aero […]
Let me borrow your tinfoil hat for a second :)
Some of the Mercedes guys that are unhappy with Toto’s management style could have noticed Racing Point guys with their 3D camera inside Mercedes wind […]
@alec-glen Rake is only one concept and I think Mercedes has used high rakentoo. I’d be surprised if nobody has copied anything from the hybrid Mercedes and have only focused on RBR cars and philosophy.
I d […]
@alec-glen You mean any other bloodthirsty nobel peace prize winner? I need to do more research.
drmouse commented on the post, The only thing the black-and-white flag adds is confusion 1 year, 9 months ago
My biggest gripe however is the timing of it, F1 is the only major sport that introduces rule changes mid season, it’s bonkers.
I agree that rules should never be changed mid-season (unless for s […]
