James Brickles commented on the post, F1 drivers' defensive moves have become more "rude" – Raikkonen 1 month ago
Tarmac run-off areas and extended kerbs also have an impact as it has given drivers more opportunities to take liberties when it comes to overtaking/defending. In a two-fold situation, the inside driver can push […]
It reminds me of the the 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix where Felipe Massa received a drive through penalty for a pit entry infringement. In all the previous years of coming to Interlagos, the pit entry was never […]
@randommallard – I must admit I’d forgotten about T5/6 at Abu Dhabi.
I’m inclined to prefer the new design as it has a slightly nicer flow plus a nearby gravel trap to punish mistakes as shown by Kubica’s off in FP2. The best of the 04-20 variant’s overtaking was seen before the […]

How many further updates will there be to the track limit rules this weekend?
I say 2 after this.
Halfway there ;)
@rdotquestionmark – Ahh the Sunob circuit, also known as Frameout City in the original Formula 1 game. A silly little circuit, yes, but incredibly fun to drive on in F1 97.
My biggest problems with the circuit are the 5-6 chicane, which was probably an emergency solution to the lack of run-off at turn 7 and was never fixed, and the high number of off-cambered corners. Every time we […]
Both drivers were to blame in my view. Maybe Lance didn’t see Daniil; Kvyat was quite far to the right and possibly in the blind spot, but Daniil did kind of just saunter into turn 8 and it ended up as a […]
James Brickles commented on the post, Which track should fill the empty slot on F1's 2021 calendar? 7 months ago
Logistically, it would make a lot of sense to create an Iberian double-header with the Algarve, but the two week gap between the empty and the Spanish GP makes the decision more flexible. If I was looking for a […]
@alianora-la-canta – Thought that might’ve been the case, same with Valencia in a way in building the circuit around existing architecture.
Aside from napalming the entire circuit to rid it of its needless existence, here’s a possible idea that removes the issue of the turn two run-off by removing turn two completely, as well re-profiling the entire […]
James Brickles commented on the post, F1 polls fans on replacing qualifying with 30-minute reverse grid races 9 months ago
The timing of the poll couldn’t be worse with the Russian GP next, a circuit notorious for hideously abysmal racing. An inevitable procession is going to happen and the bosses will introduce the new reverse grid […]
James Brickles commented on the post, Tyre barrier changed at scene of Hubert's fatal crash 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Tarmac run-offs are not that much safer, not because of their better stopping power compared to gravel, but because it’s made the drivers more dangerous as they take more liberties with braking zones, track […]
We had a race one where because Alonso took a corner flat out he confused the software and it thought he was at a different part or the track.
That was qualifying for the 2017 Belgian GP where he took Pouhon […]
A 100m sprint athlete uses different shoes from the marathon runner.
That reminded me of Ayrton Senna’s interview after the 1992 Portuguese GP when he compared Prost’s veto that prevented both from being […]
I reckon they can get away with using the fast first corner because the cars will be comfortably flat-out through the final corner to the point where they can follow each other easily. Plus that chicane looks horrid, like the fiddly chicane at Fuji.
Hockenheim’s arena/stadium section?
Come to think of it, Max Verstappen’s rear wing looked like it was moving about a fair bit during the last race. If you look at his rearward onboard shot during his battle with Valtteri Bottas, you can see it […]
