    Is that the old name and logo I see there? Oh the memories.

    Yes, paypal alternative please. Guess why I’m not a supporter

    The F1 youtube channel is a pleasant surprise and with very high quality content, it did surprise me.

    You should see the top 10s that they do every now and then and if you are looking for a bit of fun the grill the grid series. During race weekends you also have the paddock pass along with the highlights of the weekend in various shapes and forms.

    The podcast I haven’t heard any, but I’m saving them for the off season, plus there were articles around here based on them.

    Have decided to revise mine, as I did it from memory and some situations weren’t as clear as I had thought. A guy gets into his 30s and can’t handle wine as I used to.

    so I will have to change Perez to a more realistic ranking

    1 Hamilton – Still he rises. But really, what is he rising from? When was the last time he was down, and hadn’t the machinery no to be in the top? 1995? Still, impressive season, best of anyone imo

    2 Leclerc – Hard to be names after a supermarket, at least he had a super debut season, started slow and improved throughout the season, as did his car. There are questions about his pace in mixed conditions though, and Marcus isn’t a very good comparison

    3 Hulkenberg – retired 7 times to his teammate’s 2, yet he still managed to finish ahead in the standings and best of the rest. Still has to wake up in the morning knowing Stroll has a podium finish and he doesn’t

    4 Verstappen – Mistakes at the start of the season are easy to forget, but I didn’t so had to place him 4th. Good news is, the UFC is planning to ditch the 125 pound division and he might come back stronger and swinging at 135.

    5 Ricciardo – RB14 unlucky for some right? Still two remarkable wins, especially the one at Monaco, and stealing the pole in Mexico was quite the moment

    6 Alonso – Ssaid adios to F1, but really has anyone seen him since Hungary? Still he just had to check in at the gate to be better than Vandoorne. Had a proper bad race in Brazil just for good all times sake.

    7 Vettel – Paid tribute to his season at the yas Marina, by making a number of donuts equal to the times he spun around throughout the year, yes I counted.

    8 Perez – Perez was the only one out of the big 3 to get a podium finish, and again ends the season ahead of a teammate that is “better” than him. Ricciardo, driving for RBR only had one more podium than him, let that one sink in (bonus points for both of his podium being for race wins though). No one likes the guy, but I don’t like any of them, so I decided to give the nod and still place him above his teammate on racecraft and points.

    9 Ocon – The heir of the Mercedes seat thinks he is too good for Williams and much better than his teammate, still finished behind him on points in a season where Perez had a part-time job as an administrator

    10 Gasly – Isn’t that a pokemon name? Well I don’t know, he comfortably beat his teammate, what more can I say? Top 10 seems fair right?

    11 Kevin the balls Magnunsen – Will he be a champion one day? Sure, why not? Oh, in F1? Well at least he was the best of the two Haas’s isn’t that Haawoseme?

    12 Kimi – Even with Sebs mistakes he lingered behind him, still better than the other Fin

    13 Bottas – But not by much. Bottas with the best car on the grid, managed to finish behind the two ferraris and a redbull, while his teammate was winning he was struggling to reach the podium. Yes he was unlucky at the start, but where did he go midway into the season?

    14 Sainz – Still over-rated in my opinion, if he was blonde he would be named Marcus Ericsson. Feels like he is going to McLaren because he knew someone

    15 Ericsson – Had maybe a few too many chances in F1, had a Marcus Ericsson season, but this time someone gave him the boot, that was probably the biggest surprise of the season.

    16 Grosjean – Managed to be outscored by K-Mag by 19 points, and worst of all Pirelli doesn’t give stars for his cooking prowess.

    17 Stroll – Meh

    18 Sirotkin – worse meh?

    19 Hartley – STR would have needed a master thesis to justify keeping him on that seat, pretty sure Dr. Helmut Marko is pretty bored of those things

    20 Vandoorne – I was about to say that Vandoorne had Stroll levels of performance this year, but that would be unfair to Stroll, Vandoorne was worse. At least he makes it into the top 20. The first year we can give him the benefit of the doubt, especially going against a two time world champion, but he manages to get worse in the second year? Especially the start of the season should have been better, at that time the McLaren was a better car in comparison

    It should be a bit more mobile friendly. Maybe you could merge it with the taptalk app?

    We should be able to access our history more easily.

    I would also suggest a sidebar for our most recent activity

    An edit button, that would allow us to edit our comments (obviously) and that marked the comment as being edited. Plus by clicking a button we could see the original comment so that we could confirm the person hasn’t changed the meaning of the message

    The forum always felt a bit hidden for me, don’t know why. Maybe the sidebar could be helpful here as well?

    The notifications aren’t working properly, sometimes I get tagged and I don’t receive it. Maybe get a notification also if we get a reply without being taghed? That would be great especially when unregistered accounts enter a discussion.

    “+1” button, sometimes there are great comments that look like they are not being appreciated because they have no answer, that would prevent that and help you on the COTD

    Again with the notifications, I have two friend request from fake accounts that I cannot see, read, delete or ignore, but I do have the number 2 in pending requests, even though they disappeared.

    More as a suggestion, but probably complicated due to the nature of the site. Only allow registered accounts to comment, as troll prevention. Buy fully understand why this isn’t in use currently

    Also add shortcuts for the standings

    Graphics for the probability of some accounts commenting nonsense, JK, I know who they areand I belong to the group

    How is it going to work on various devices, there is already an app for mobile. Should we expect smart-tv to get one as well?

    Is the subscription individual, since there is a price range of 8-12$ what will tell them apart? Could a person share a subscription with someone like other streaming services

    Obviously I would want to know if it is available in my country (Portugal), but that will come later when they make the announcements
