JackySteeg commented on the post, How the drivers and teams' titles will be decided in Abu Dhabi 1 day, 17 hours ago
If nothing else, I’m just relieved we won’t see the title decided by those stupid late race fastest lap pitstops.
Unless we end up with HAM/VER running 9th and 10th with a big enough gap to 11th, and too far […]
I’ve never seen such consistently questionable driving standards in a season, and I do feel like this is a legacy of the introduction of time penalties (as opposed to drive throughs and stop-gos).
I was u […]
I do think that for driving standards (and issues of safety) drive-throughs are more appropriate. Obviously bringing them back widely won’t be popular, but I say instead use the black and white flag more often. O […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Nothing unusual about restart 'deal' conversation with Red Bull – Masi 2 days, 1 hour ago
Don’t really know why this has caused such a fuss. The phrasing was weird, yes, but this obviously wasn’t some sort of negotiation, it was very clearly an instruction to give up the ill-gained position or face a l […]
I’ve no idea what to think. Far and away the ugliest race I’ve ever seen. Track is just designed for utter chaos, too many interruptions, doesn’t exactly suit a venue for world championship battle. I won’t even ge […]
I don’t really know why we haven’t heard some sort of explanation. The only one I can think of is that they think HAM was heading off-track anyway, which would be debatable in itself, but at least that would pre […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Horner blames "rogue marshal" after Verstappen suffers penalty blow 2 weeks, 3 days ago
I mean… if you’re a marshal and have a broken car stopped in front of you, you’re not going to be listening to confirmation from race control whether you should keep waving a yellow flag, are you? Since when was t […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, McLaren Group denies "wholly inaccurate" report of sale to Audi 3 weeks, 2 days ago
Relieved there is no truth to it. VW have seldom shown true interest in F1, and have a tendency to quit series at will, so I’d hate to see McLaren bought out by Audi just to have the plug pulled on them 5 years later.
JackySteeg commented on the post, Sprint format gave Hamilton "real chance" after penalty – Brawn 3 weeks, 3 days ago
Says a lot that the only real excitement we’ve seen from the sprints all year has come from a front running driver starting at the back. Inevitably we’re edging closer to reverse grid races.
To be honest, if […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Verstappen gives Honda its first F1 win in America for 30 years 1 month, 1 week ago
Perez is the first driver from a North American country to stand on the podium in a North American Grand Prix since Villeneuve in Canada ‘96.
There was the third race in the row to feature no full safety car, t […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Formula 2 and Formula 3 scrap triple-header format after one year 2 months, 2 weeks ago
It seemed like a reasonable idea, but it really has been a mistake and it’s good they’ve recognised this.
The increased proportion of reverse-grid races have made it more difficult for the truly bright sta […]

Easy to say Ricciardo, but for me Bottas just about edges it. It was far and away his best weekend of the season, and quite possibly one of the best of his career. It was one heck of a response to losing his seat. […]
Another Hollywood twist in the best title fight in years, a close, gripping contest throughout, and best of all, a truly feel-good win.
And as an added bonus, we had none of those late pit stops for that stupid […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Hamilton and Verstappen under investigation after race-ending clash 2 months, 3 weeks ago
2 drivers going for the title giving no quarter. A racing incident for me.
Although I will say, Verstappen could’ve done more to avoid it. I think if there’s one area he can still improve on, it’s that he needs […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Rate the race: 2021 Italian Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying 2 months, 4 weeks ago
Meh. I think we can safely say that the sprint format doesn’t work.
If they have to keep it (no doubt the powers that be will insist on it) then it absolutely must be an independent race separate from q […]
JackySteeg commented on the post, Official: Bottas to join Alfa Romeo in 2022 after Mercedes departure 3 months ago
No doubt the years of being Hamilton’s wingman has drained his confidence as it has for many drivers in his position. It reminds me a lot of Massa’s final few years at Ferrari. Constantly being in his tea […]
