Chalky commented on the post, Norris slates F1's "worst rule ever invented" after red flag misfortune 1 month, 1 week ago
The reason for the red flag, tyre change, rule is safety.
In the event of an accident, drivers may have driven over debris, that could damage (puncture) the tyres. If there was a penalty to changing tyres under a […]

I agree. This year it’s getting harder and harder to actually watch multiple motorsport series ‘live’ without spending a stupid amount of money. With all bar one of F1s live races now with Sky, there really isn’t […]

Not quite the right link there ;)
Here’s the 1993 Monza incident:
Chalky commented on the post, Hinchcliffe grabs Iowa win as late error costs Newgarden second 3 years, 6 months ago
Great win for Hinch, especially after the disappointment he had at Indy. Adjusting the car at each stop helped him compete with what looked like a Newgarden only show. With Newgarden nearly lapping all but a […]
The 24hr is tough, but not really for Toyota. Being the only hybrid entry they are the only LMP1 cars to get a 1 lap advantage on the field (set in the rules!). Being able to to stop less over other competitors is […]
I do not think you will ever solve the problem with Monaco.
Current rules “You must use 2 different tyre compounds”.
So teams will always 1 stop. We’ve all seen the Senna Mansell clip. Track position is the […]
Chalky commented on the post, F1 TV to launch in 40 countries but VPN access will be blocked 3 years, 10 months ago
It feels like I’ve been waiting ages for a service like this and then we can’t get it in the UK because of the existing SKY contract in place!
I guess we get to let others test and troubleshoot the service before […]
Chalky commented on the post, Horner calls penalty "appalling", Verstappen blames "idiot steward" 4 years, 2 months ago
Agreed. If that red tarmac was grass…
I pointed out straight away that he could get a penalty (the other half thought I was mad). I’m not in favour of the penalty.
However, I’d rather not have off track […]
Chalky commented on the post, Licence no problem for Kubica but 2017 race seat unlikely 4 years, 5 months ago
FE is more relevant to manufacturers now with both the UK and France setting plans for removing new petrol and diesel cars from 2040. The manufacturers are aware that there is a shift in technology and they need […]
The only thing I got from Joes article is if you don’t agree with him, you’re not welcome to post an opinion.
I don’t believe other F1 drivers will be deliberately driving into each other and I’m hoping Vettel […]
Chalky commented on the post, Alonso will miss the Monaco Grand Prix to race in the Indianapolis 500 4 years, 9 months ago
I am really surprised but very excited for the news. Maybe someone should let Alonso know that all 4 Andretti cars failed to finish the last Indycar race at Long Beach due to technical failures.
But then Alonso […]
Liberty Media have the chance to revert the trend, but if they continue on the same path I can see viewer figures still declining.
In 2019, I’m not sure for the first time if I will get to see an F1 race that […]
Chalky commented on the post, New F1-spec Malaysian track to be "Nurburgring of Asia" 5 years, 1 month ago
The only thing German about that design is that is looks quite similar to Oschersleben, but with some longer straights.
Perhaps the elevation change will ensure some more interesting driving experiences.
I guess […]
