It bemuses a little when people say it devalues the GP. If it awards appropriate points for the distance then I don’t see how that can be. It’s still a race, still a challenge and you still need pole to max […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, Hamilton "went in too hot" in Verstappen collision – Ricciardo 1 week, 5 days ago
Exactly, I’ve said it before but I’m amazed when I see that they’re NOT using those barriers literally everywhere. It’s especially bad there where they use them but it stops at what the average person with common […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, "A win is a win" says Wolff as Mercedes halt Red Bull's victory run 1 week, 5 days ago
Yep, same as Karun Chandock said on the Sky pad, a racing incident. Both drivers could have changed the outcome but both were racing each other very hard and expected the other to move. I find it ludicrous seeing […]
Weird seeing people giving it 5/10. I mean I’ve seen far more boring F1 races in my life. Even that first half a lap had more excitement and drama than most. Shame about Leclerc having no answer to Hamilton s […]

Yep. Absolutely tantalising to watch in full. He still has it.
davidhunter13 commented on the post, Rate the race: 2021 British Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying 2 weeks ago
Well I quite liked it. I’m a 36 year old long time but I’d say still casual fan in some senses (I can’t recognise new bodywork on the floor or anything that niche but I “get” the racing).
To me I quite lik […]

Anyone know why they put what looks like cheap holographic wrapping paper on as the livery? Making it look about as bad as they could. Just put a decent livery on it, darker, so we can actually see the shape […]
Yes! It’s ludicrous they want to disassociate this RACE from being a RACE when it is clearly a RACE. Just madness. I’m all for it and it definitely makes me more eager to visit a track in person for a weekend as […]
Great comment. They really need to listen to the drivers and teams AND fans on this. Nobody was really all too happy with Austria there. I forget about the penalty points as well and these incidents just […]
I take it you’re not UK based? If you are then I don’t get the complaint. I’d always much rather see my entertainment later on in the day. Getting up and ready to watch a practice session at 10am or god forbi […]
I must admit it looks a lot more tantalising seeing it scheduled in and I like the later timings of all the events. It would definitely make visiting for a full weekend far more worthwhile as you’re literally g […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, FIA's reluctance to enforce F1's rules is "sad" – Alonso 4 weeks ago
I do feel like race management as well as safety issues have really fallen by the wayside since Whiting passed and Masi took over. It’s all very reactionary and I dare say will lead to a bad accident that could b […]

Just don’t go a washed out pale green similar to the washed out pale pink they used before. Just make it bold. Make it the 7Up Jordan green. It’s not difficult.

They just don’t want to see us happy do they? Just leave it alone. It looked great. Quick, flowing, short lap. Some of the best tracks like Interlagos are short and flowing. This extension looks like just adding s […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, Verstappen extends lead with Hamilton-esque win on Red Bull's home ground 1 month ago
Really nice write up. I’ve only ever been to the British GP twice and I think the next race I really want to go to must be Austria. For the scenery as much as anything. How accessible is it if you don’t drive tho […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, Tsunoda given three-place penalty for impeding Bottas 1 month ago
I saw the replay and it looked like he was as much out of the way as he could have been, and I don’t see how it impeded Bottas, more a case of catching him off guard and disturbing his concentration potentially, b […]
davidhunter13 commented on the post, Igora Drive to replace Sochi as home of Russian Grand Prix in 2023 1 month ago
Interesting. Sochi and the Russian GP is one of those ones I overlook when requesting days off work, it’s that dull. This track at least looks like a proper traditional circuit of old. Lots of sweeping fast c […]

Lando broke track limits a lot so a few of his times were deleted but besides that I’m not sure.
davidhunter13 commented on the post, FIA to force F1 teams to slow down their pit stops 1 month, 1 week ago
This sounds ridiculous and very contrived. I don’t really get how any of this is actually going to work in practice when you’re talking about fractions of a second delays anyway.
It’s part of the risk rewar […]
Nice! These new tracks and their obsession sometimes with endless right angle corners really does frustrate. So fidgety and achieve nothing. So this is a great set of changes! Can they do something similar to […]
