How do you guys feel about a rule to exclude drivers that have significant grid penalties from qualifying? 10+ Q2 exit, 15+ Q1 exit
This is a typical case of: “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”. Drivers will go to the max and beyond, of what is allowed by the regulations. If the stewards are too lenient or inconsistent, that’s the problem, […]
It looks like the design philosophy behind the RB18 was totally focused on aerodynamics. It looks like it cuts through the air like butter. Don’t know what this means for handling and downforce, but this could […]
Looks like a clear cut case then :-)
Too bad it had to end this way for both Max and Lewis, but good for the championship

Safety first. Oh no, money first, then safety – Michael Massi, Turkey 2020
As mentioned here, drivers are allowed to interpret the double waved yellows as we’ve seen in qualifying with Magnussen and Stroll […]
I think this is a very good idea. Don’t know how they are going to enforce it, but the FIA geeks will probably think of something.
The current advantage in qualifying of 1 second over the rest of the field is […]

Better not be another Hamilton-Bottas scenario. Would be bad for F1 and mind-numbing for the viewers.
I personally love the excitement of heated team battles like Perez-Ocon and Ricciardo-Verstappen.
I’m not a Honda fan, nor for that matter a Renault fan, I’m just looking at the data. This clearly shows that Renault was far more off the pace (speed trap) in previous years during the Barcelona test, […]
I personally think Honda IS the reason why they have bridged the gap. The engine is probably only a little bit off-pace compared to the big 2, but this is where Newey can make the difference. In previous seasons […]
This makes no sense at all. Is the joker “escape” just for this circuit? Or just for Mercs and Ferrari’s?
Charlie probably got hit in the head with some debris at the F2 crash start.

The money is obviously great, but I’m sure it feels a lot less nice if you have nobody to share it with, or at least the nice things you can do with the money.

My thoughts exactly! This article is written with so much prejudice and it’s not even about Max Verstappen, but the missteps his dad has committed.
What’s next? Ban all German drivers because some of their family […]
DigitalHank commented on the post, Hamilton urges Pirelli to end "ridiculous" one-stop races 3 years, 10 months ago
As I recall Pirelli said that they have their own ideas about the tires, but make these compounds as FOM demands, so it’s FOM who have to change their approach.
The whole idea of so many compounds is totally […]
