Ciaran commented on the post, Yas Marina changing track layout to aid overtaking at F1 season finale 5 hours ago
The changes look encouraging and show they’re willing to make improvements, although I’m astounded it took them this long.
What I like is the ambition of the changes – reconfiguring the first chicane is a […]
Ciaran commented on the post, Zhou wins as Armstrong snatches race two pole with last-lap pass 1 month ago
The pitfalls of F2’s new weekend format really got laid bare today. Obviously Monaco has little/no overtaking but there was absolutely no desire from most of the drivers to risk both Race 1 and 2 for a single […]

What a gorgeous one Ricciardo has! None of the others come close

@keithedin It’s been a few years, but I remember Richard Williams as being a serial complainer – that tweet is par for the course for him!
Ciaran commented on the post, Who are the top F1 juniors bidding for a grand prix debut in 2022? 1 month, 2 weeks ago
What I find most striking after reading about all these talented young drivers is how few F1 seats are up for grabs for them. Realistically if we say that Raikkonen and/or Giovinazzi, Ocon, Mazepin and Latifi are […]
Ciaran commented on the post, F1 is following Formula E's lead on social media and street tracks – Agag 3 years, 4 months ago
I understand that FE/Agag have to be ambitious in how they appear to fans and the media, but they really do have too high an opinion of themselves. It’s pretty tiring watching them pretend they’re the titans of […]
Ciaran commented on the post, "Tarty nonsense": F1's use of grid girls is 'under review' 3 years, 6 months ago
I’ll never not find it funny how outraged some people get whenever the grid girls discussion come up. The previous article (comment section to be more specific) on grid girls that Keith linked is some quality […]
The people who call for more stringent rules are probably the most likely to complain about them the second they get introduced. This is the pinnacle of racing, let’s keep it that way by leaving the best drivers […]
What is it about Hamilton that gets everyone so riled up? He loses a near-certain win, and people have the nerve to criticise him for being frustrated?
I find it entertaining that when F1 initially banned certain radio messages, the WEC commentators and fans immediately went on the usual predictable rant of “WEC doesn’t do that, more pure racing etc etc”, but […]
@sviat You make it sound simple, but how would anyone write it into the regulations without creating an even more complicated mess? There’s no efficient way of eliminating driver coaching and leaving everything […]
I still can’t understand the hate against this system. This effectively eliminates pay drivers within a few years and guarantees high talent going into F1… maybe people are salty they’ve one less thing to complain about.
@ragwort I think a lot of people bias their ratings based on the track, albeit the other way around. So if this race occurred in Sochi it’d probably be 4/10 instead of 6.5, because people have a natural dislike of that track.
Ciaran commented on the post, Le Mans 2016 promises to be a six-way fight at the front 5 years ago
I’ve always been envious of Le Mans/WEC fans’ ability to stay eternally positive about their series… F1 could do with some of that. I went to the WEC Silverstone race and it was a great experience, so I’ll be […]
I wouldn’t argue that F1 shouldn’t be dangerous, but how does Aeroscreen impact this? All it does is (mostly) eliminate the chances of getting hit head-on by debris, this doesn’t change the core of F1 of […]
The cockpits would still be open, I don’t see how Aeroscreen changes anything in that regard. And F1 cars have had screens before http://www.mrof1engineering.co.uk/images/cars/brabhams/bt44b/large/20.jpg

Those Red Bull shoes need to be destroyed…
Ciaran commented on the post, Verstappen taking Kvyat's seat is about future potential, not past results 5 years, 1 month ago
It’s an incredibly harsh decision, but it’s difficult to see Kvyat potentially winning a world championship or even races, so getting replaced by Verstappen was an inevitability in that regard. One other thing […]
