Checking cars out in the garage is one thing. Actually putting equipment to the car and making repairs or adjusting parts is another.
Not in the eyes of the regulations. In its perspective, the […]
@aapje So you oppose “woke” people because some “asleep” people deliberately harm others and opposing them is necessary? Illuminating.
@peartree Races are not re-run on red flags, and for the reasons I specified in my previous post cannot be re-run. These also need to be treated as neutralised.
MotoGP is not run by the FIA, rather by FIM […]
Of course, I think the incident was Sainz’s fault rather than Russell’s, but that’s a whole different argument…
@peartree There’s nothing in the rules that permits an X second penalty to be issued for an incident prior to the race, and the session was allegedly part of qualifying. The stewards had to give a grid penalty.
Tim, F1 tried to give a heavy punishment to Pat and Flavio (5 years – which back then was the next step down from life – and life respectively), but a French civil court struck down part of the punishment as […]
Alex Roy Corberi didn’t just use his car as a weapon (though he did), he also threw objects at competitors and got involved in a pitlane fight.
@drmouse I disagree on several of the premises you cite. I don’t think requiring people to be tuned in on 3 different days to understand what’s happening is beneficial, especially since most TV contracts won’t […]
@aapje Your statements, bar one, are outright false.
The lowest attainment scores in UK education are Gypsy/Roma people (yes, the official statistics describe it thus :( ). They mostly do not see themselves as […]
@Mayrton Paying attention to factors involved in a crash generally does get public attention (regardless of how good/bad the take is).
@wernervonrode BLM (both organisation and hashtag) do distinguish between criticism and racism, even before considering most anti-racists are not part of BLM (I suspect the majority neither know nor care what the […]
@aapje Unfortunately, as demonstrated in the 10 years prior to 2016, ignoring people with bad takes leads to them getting more powerful and eventually imposing them on sensible people and deliberately or […]
@aapje The “bad apples” have turned out to be a large number, both with the abuse of England players in the Euro 2020 finals and the abuse of Lewis this week (there’s also been some abuse of Max that appears to be […]
@barryfromdownunder At no point did Christian Horner or Helmut Marko’s attitude on Sunday come across as “honest”. Not unless they have somehow got through 16 years of F1 without learning a single thing about how […]
@Thomas Every social media platform with a significant F1 fandom presence. While RF has had relatively few such comments compared to the larger platforms, that’s largely because of greater diligence in removing […]
@jaymenon10 However, 1 in 6 of the identifable abuse came from within the UK, which is quite remarkable given that it was a UK team involved and football fans are usually protective of their own team when they […]
@cduk_mugello Alas, it has not happened as I’d hoped it would :(
@Niki101 In the UK (where most of the teams are), threats against a driver based on nationality are also considered “racist”. So it covers the death threats against Max as well as those against Lewis.
@peartree “Ethnicism” isn’t recognised as a concept; “racism” is (and in the UK, it’s recognised for all axes of ethnic categories).
@Mayrton It’s relevant because a lot of people consider it worth planning assaults against him (not just isolated “heat of the moment” stuff, but setting up a website to plan attacks).
(There are also death […]
