I’ll hate. That first chicane was awkward, but caught many drivers out even in dry conditions and proved to be a decent test for braking.
More importantly, what they seem to have done is taken the two most […]
In this (surprisingly official FOM) video you can see the accident: http://www.formula1.com/content/fom-website/en/video/2016/3/FP3__Drama_in_the_pit_lane_as_Haryanto_and_Grosjean_collide.html
It’s tricky. It […]

Same here. It was a hard choice between him and Perez. Both had their teammates beat thoroughly all weekend and drove mature races. Had Perez stayed 4th he would have gotten my vote, but Rosberg’s incredible run […]
Makes sense, he was the only driver who stood out that weekend.
Interestingly his 3 DotW wins are 3 of the smallest 5 margins (1st, 4th,5th lowest). As impressive as he’s been he’s still got a bit to climb. […]
In a way it reminds me of Melbourne
To me Melbourne’s layout offers so much more variety and such special corners. The combinations of turns 1&2, 3&4 (which always show action) and 11&12 are spectacular. But […]
I’ll reserve judgement until after the race, but what I’ve seen from the track so far – especially now that’s we’ve had one FP session, it really doesn’t look like a good layout.
Not a single corner seems […]

…but it hasn’t sprung up from scrub land (like Istanbul…
If Istanbul Park were any indication of how a ‘sprung up from scrub land’ track would like like, F1 would have a significantly happier fanbase. :)

I’m sorry, how is this on anybody but Raikonnen? Every single driver at some point had to deal with wild speculation and insecurity over their future. A driver held in as high esteem as Raikonnen, with his […]
I don’t see your logic, perhaps my phrasing was a bit unfortunate. Obviously this would not happen without public consent – but ‘fun’ isn’t an argument that’ll likely win from safety, economy, efficiency.
@davidnotcoulthard True, but the prime reason cars are as lethal as they are is because of what they hit – other people’s safety. A horse isn’t as fast – especially not on public roads – or as heavy as even a […]
Insurance costs will go down by incredible amounts due to the increased safety of driverless cars. There is no reason insurance couldn’t work similarly to how it does now. The idea that human input is needed to […]
What the hell? It’s an extremely relevant topic to both motoring and motorsports, especially with F1 pretending it needs to stay relevant in relation to roadcars in order to keep manufacturers interested.
You don’t need to be an authoritarian state to ban certain types of behavior for the benefit and safety of society as a whole.
There are plenty of vehicles not allowed on public roads, no reason why that […]
Don’t you think at a certain point it’ll be mandatory to have a self driving car, rather than optional? Certainly for the next few decades we’ll still have a steering wheel, but at a certain point economics and […]
In the near future we’ll see autonomous driving cars appear as an option, in the long run they’ll be mandatory. In cities and on highways there’s simply no argument for the continuous allowance of drivers apart […]
First of, you don’t have to be mistreated by women to turn into a bigot, some people manage very well all by themselves.
Women are held to a much higher standard in Formula 1. People forget how abysmally Luca […]
Can’t wait for the game ‘guess the midfield car in wide shots’. It’ll be an intense battle between a predominantly black Lotus, McLaren, Force India and likely Sauber in an exciting race to the stillistic bottom.
