Surely Indycars fit the bill? Or Super Formula?
Yay, COTD! I’ve been thinking about it a bit more, and even if teams are allowed substitutes on Saturday, it’s going to stop most third drivers running on weekends with sprint qualifying. You would want your main […]
Will teams be able to change their driver after Friday qualifying? Or do they need to stick with whoever’s in the seat on Friday quali for the sprint qualifying and the main event? It could create less o […]
I also think it’s more likely than not his last season: get the record number of titles, 100 wins, 100 poles, and retire to focus on what he wants to do outside of the sport. However, I do wonder if he’ll wait to […]
I couldn’t spot any Mercedes branding on the new car anywhere, unless I missed it. Usually customer teams have a discreet logo on the engine cover at least. I’m not sure what that says about the relationship […]
Martin commented on the post, Buemi and Kubica to join Alonso at Young Drivers Test 4 months, 1 week ago
COVID isn’t likely to go away in a meaningful sense until the second half of 2021. I wonder if these announcements in part reflects teams wanting to make sure they have an experienced back-up ready with recent car […]
Martin commented on the post, Hamilton: Young F1 stars shouldn't be "handicapped" by salary cap 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Martin commented on the post, No simulator runs mean Kvyat is "starting from zero" at Istanbul 5 months, 1 week ago
I’m kinda surprised that the drivers who aren’t into sim racing haven’t invested in a rig for themselves to train for these new/returning tracks. It seems like an easy thing to do to get a bit of marginal […]
I find that statement that the opportunity never presented itself a bit bizarre. As it states in the article, he was probably considered when they went with Kvyat instead, and I’m sure they could have recalled him […]
The reason it was exciting to see Gasly at the front was because he was competing for a race win. It wouldn’t have been anywhere near as captivating if he was merely trying to get pole, especially if it was […]
Martin commented on the post, Raikkonen not interested in Virtual GPs, Grosjean cools on joining in 11 months, 3 weeks ago
I think it was Brazil 2003 in the wet where one of the Minardis was fuelled to the end and lapping faster than those in front, before aquaplaning off. Stoddart reckoned they would have won that race where it not for that.
