Not to mention the 4 x driver titles, and the fact he demolished another world champion in the same car (coming from an honest Raikkonen fan).
I think fans who watch all the build up, week in, week out, would prefer the on-hour start. I’m like you – 10 mins going through the grid from qualifying and rounding up the main talking points […]
Barnstable1 commented on the post, Third rejection for F1's reverse-grid qualifying race plan 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Guess I’m in the minority here who would like to see how this works. But I stopped watching qualifying maybe three years ago now because it just isn’t that interesting to me anymore, so maybe my view is biased. If […]
Barnstable1 commented on the post, F1 proposes replacing engine grid penalties with ballast penalties 2 years, 1 month ago
Lots of comments already dismissing the idea without stating why…
Personally, I like it. Since we must have penalties for these sorts of things, I’d prefer ballast to be added than dropping a car down the […]
Barnstable1 commented on the post, The only thing the black-and-white flag adds is confusion 2 years, 1 month ago

Does anyone actually have an excerpt of the rules regarding drivers unlapping themselves during races? I am reading a lot of people arguing that unlapping does not follow the same rules to overtaking, and others […]
Barnstable1 commented on the post, Kvyat could return to Toro Rosso again, Horner confirms 3 years, 1 month ago
If Torro Rosso are open to rehiring old blood, I’d have thought Jean-Eric Vergne would be the better choice – current FE contract issues aside.
There is a reason Kvyat fell out of favour with the Red Bull camp. […]
You are putting words in @huhhii‘s mouth; the original comment did not say “100% momentum”.
I won’t comment on whether the penalty was correct or not, but “he barely let Kimi pass, kept the momentum, had a […]
Barnstable1 commented on the post, Whiting against F1 drivers' calls for faster Safety Car 3 years, 5 months ago
I always saw it more from the lapped cars’ perspective and preventing the chance of those cars losing a whole lap:
E.g. the first backmarker has just been lapped by the leader and the safety car comes out. He […]
