G.T.M. commented on the post, Sexist comments Ben Sulayem made in 2001 "do not reflect his current beliefs" 1 week, 1 day ago
What has been said or done in the past should not be ignored or wiped. That would be akin to rewriting history to reshape the present to further a contemporary agenda in an Orwellian 1984 style so we should not […]
The DRS issue is fundamental to the sport and should be aired often and vigorously. What are we watching for if not exciting and challenging passes? Yet the DRS aid dilutes that into a dull manoeuvre in most […]
G.T.M. commented on the post, Verstappen and Red Bull team members in Sky boycott 3 months, 1 week ago
In fairness Martin Brundle is excellent but the rest are just irritating to one degree or another. Jenson is amusing occasionally but generally lame, De Resta is awful and Croft is simply embarrassing.
If I […]
Nice article. I’ve only been to European GP’s but there’s an atmosphere in Austin that even comes through the TV. I’ve heard the track slated but it delivers year on year for me, something which Miami and very […]
What a ridiculous fuss about some rumour. Boring. But if it rocks your boat then knock yourself over tittle-tattle.
It depends on where you are in yourself imho. Lewis has never overreacted in a Schumacher way or been as snidy as Alonso for example. Both drivers I have enormous respect for btw.
Lewis tries hard to to project […]

Imagine a world where F1 was attractive because it didn’t pander to the latest audience grabbing idea and remained true to it’s original format: practice, qualifying, the Big Race.
Constantly chasing seemingly […]
It is naive to think that a mechanism to somehow clamp down on hate speech online would not then be used to suppress other legitimate points of view which some powerful entity decided was “hate” against them.

Lando? Can’t blame them? Wrong!
Also Ocon’s tacit acceptance is unwelcome.
These flares are unnecessary and should be stringently banned and the message drilled into the “fans” relentlessly until they are no […]

That Q3 qualification time table is totally screwed up, please correct.

Could be worse, Italian management..
G.T.M. commented on the post, Di Grassi accuses Vettel of "greenwashing" after he criticises Formula E again 5 months ago
Well said. And what of the child exploitation in the cobalt mines in DRC and the ripping into the landscape? All to allow Joe Public to think they’re saving the planet. Follow the money and you’ll see we’re having […]
G.T.M. commented on the post, Las Vegas race date leaked, indicating race start times outside USA 6 months ago
It doesn’t bode well as a layout..
And here we go, bowing to the whims of the US audience with a Saturday race. Thin end of the wedge quite possibly.
And that last point is exactly it for me. Taking Spa out would dilute further the passion of mine that has been dwindling very slowly over the last few years. Racing at some really dull tracks that I have no […]
G.T.M. commented on the post, How to lose a season in 10 races: Ferrari's staggering reversal in fortunes 6 months ago
It was ever thus in my long view of F1. Quite apart from the Schumacher/Brawn/Todt era, and at least 2 of those components were exceptional talents, Ferrari have always been dogged by poor management and arguably […]
I can’t see anything positive about flares at F1 venues. The authors weak point about “atmosphere” is almost laughable as there is no sporting event I’ve ever attended that has more of that in abundance than an F1 […]
G.T.M. commented on the post, Red Bull may need no changes to meet skid blocks directive – Horner 6 months, 4 weeks ago
Good point made by Martin Brundle. Max has enormous driving skills and the seemingly “win at all costs” attitude he displays is disappointing, disrespectful and detrimental to the sport.
Martin’s comparison […]

“Stamp out” booing? Seriously?
I like George a lot but I’ll defend the right of any fan to express themselves up to the point of being abusive.
G.T.M. commented on the post, Police issue warning over protesters' plan to disrupt British Grand Prix 7 months, 1 week ago
Indeed our rights to protest peacefully have been significantly reduced by the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, not too loud (ill defined) with other police powers to suppress “seriously disruptive” […]
As Lewis intimated earlier in the week there comes a point when we stop offering 2nd chances and take action that hopefully prevents further incidents of this kind.
Piquet knew what he was saying imho, Vips’ […]
