This was exactly the scenario Pirelli’s new tread pattern was designed for.
bigwilk commented on the post, Tsunoda handed win by penalty for Mazepin on victory lap 2 years, 9 months ago
Why the hate for penalising a driver who refuses to go 2 wide through a corner?
We’ve seen that move plenty of times before, and sometimes it’s a pass and sometimes the driver in Mazepin’s position keeps 2 wide […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Norris enters Wednesday's Australian Supercars iRace 3 years ago
And here I find myself being a hypocrite. I looked forward to Norris at Indy, where I was only watching because of the addition of McLaughlin from Supercars (well, and it being free to watch on demand). Now as a […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Which motorsport championship has the best virtual series? 3 years, 1 month ago
Definitely Supercars. Great presentation and actual stewards keeping things in check. Plus they’re willing to have a laugh at the pileups when they do happen. Good racing and good entertainment!
bigwilk commented on the post, Pagenaud takes second win after late drama in IndyCar iRacing Motegi race 3 years, 1 month ago
I’m enjoying the Indycar series (and I don’t normally watch, just happen to be a McLaughlin fan).
What I’ve noticed so far is that whilst the risks of running close to another car are amplified by the latency […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Raghunathan has enough penalty points for second ban of 2019 after "extremely dangerous" error 3 years, 6 months ago
24 penalty point and 1 championship point. Who is paying for this dangerous waste of a seat!?
Unless we’re talking family money I can’t imagine why anyone would sponsor him.
bigwilk commented on the post, F2 race control blunder put more than half the field a lap down 4 years ago
I don’t understand why they pushed the leaders past everyone else in the pit lane (I actually skipped most of the red flag but I assume that must have happened). If they had lined up in pit lane based on the order […]

“Hey guys, we found the one part of Formula 1 nobody seems to complain about. Let’s make it different for no reason”

Good racing, decent build up but the live presentation is still amateur hour. Given that there seems to be an official commentary team they need better access to what’s going on!
bigwilk commented on the post, Split from McLaren has helped Honda – Verstappen 4 years, 7 months ago
As an F1/V8SC/WRC fan that might mean to watch all 3 I would need Spark, Sky Sports and the WRC subscription next year.
That’s not going to happen so I’ll end up probably with just the F1, which is a shame. […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Verstappen: "I hate these stupid penalty points" 4 years, 7 months ago
Penalty points punish repeat offenders. No driver will agree with all the points they get but they shouldn’t really be able to deny that by the time they hit 12 they’ve had quite a few transgressions worth […]
bigwilk commented on the post, "He cheated!" How Perez mugged Grosjean at the VSC restart 4 years, 7 months ago
I’m a big fan of the way Formula E count down the start and finish of their VSC equivalent (no doubt as to when it finished). I suspect they just use a fixed speed though which has already been discussed above. […]
bigwilk commented on the post, No standings starts for next four F2 races due to safety concerns 4 years, 11 months ago
That would make more sense as a permanent replacement but there’s no procedure in F2 (or F1) for that and a week is too short to implement one hat cannot be tested.
I don’t quite get what will happen to those […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Mercedes hint Hamilton announcement is close 4 years, 11 months ago
Don’t know if anyone saw the F2 race but Latifi showed just how much you can get away with. He completely ruined his tyres (to the canvas) with a lap and a half left and from that point every time you saw him he […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Haas spotted Grosjean's engine problem in final practice 4 years, 11 months ago
I wonder why Torro Rosso has enough time while Haas didn’t?
Maybe the last few years with McLaren have given Honda an excellent engine swap manual of nothing else…
bigwilk commented on the post, Leclerc amazed by praise from Hamilton and Vettel 5 years ago
The key difference between the 1992 classic and last week’s snoozefest is the phrase “Mansell looked like he could pass Senna”. Vettel never looked like he was even trying to pass, and the same applies to almost […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Vergne rises above Paris controversies for home win 5 years, 1 month ago
Does the change to Racefans mean you’re going to post spoilers for all Motorsport now? I always avoid the site until I’ve seen the F1 but a quick glance today and F2 and FE that I’ve recorded but not watched are […]
bigwilk commented on the post, Drivers given new rules on corner-cutting at Mexico's turn one after 2016 row 5 years, 7 months ago
Pretty sure that the V8 Supercars have sensors that pick up overuse of kerbs and/or cuts. Drivers get some lenience and then the bad sportsmanship flag prior to a penalty.
I still think the case where you […]
bigwilk commented on the post, McLaren 'would let Alonso drive for Toyota at Le Mans' 5 years, 7 months ago
There’s also the probability it wouldn’t close up the field as the big teams have more resources to figure stuff out in advance. Usually minimal setup time mixes up the midfield mostly (not that I’m saying that’s bad)
bigwilk commented on the post, Vettel: Stroll changed direction without looking 5 years, 8 months ago
Haven’t seen anyone mention this (though with hundreds of posts someone probably has) but the passing driver should ensure he does so safely. This is standard at every level of Motorsport and why the overtaking […]
