Kris commented on the post, Why the Azerbaijan GP was stopped for Verstappen's crash but not Stroll's 2 years ago
I was absolutely behind the red flag, but purely on safety grounds. We’d had two sudden tyre failures that led to crashes that looked potentially dangerous. If a third failure had led to someone getting hurt, a […]
Kris commented on the post, Latifi given three penalty points for "dangerous" error after Verstappen crash 2 years ago
Absolutely. This is 100% on the team, and I too think Latifi was most unfortunate to end up with penalty points for an error that he quite clearly didn’t cause. We’ve seen errors with flags (e.g. a chequered flag […]
Kris commented on the post, Magnussen also excluded from United States GP 4 years, 7 months ago
I wonder whether Haas allowed Magnussen to spend too long in too aggressive an engine mode in the battle towards the end of the race, believing that they were all going to be lapped by the leaders. When that […]
Kris commented on the post, No indication Perez hit Sirotkin deliberately – Whiting 4 years, 8 months ago
My take on the Perez-Sirotkin incident isn’t too dissimilar to Whiting’s. I suspect that Perez had worked himself into such a frenzy that what he likely intended to be a chop across the nose of Sirotkin was […]
Kris commented on the post, Channel 4 takes over from BBC as UK F1 broadcaster 7 years, 5 months ago
I’m unsure what this means in terms of personnel changes.
If my understanding of the BBC team is correct, McNish works primarily for 5Live, and if we lost him from the TV broadcast that would be a loss. I’m not […]
Kris commented on the post, Run-off areas 'too big' on older circuits 7 years, 11 months ago
Wasn’t there some talk a while back about a circuit having special tire-munching asphalt for the run-off areas? At the back of my mind I think it might have been Paul Ricard. To me, it sounds like some […]
Kris commented on the post, Kamui Kobayashi's F1 career in pictures 8 years, 3 months ago
This really is bang on. I’ll give you a nod for COTD there!
Kris commented on the post, Bianchi has "severe head injury" after crash – FIA 8 years, 8 months ago
I’m afraid the picture I’ve just seen, which I don’t feel comfortable linking to, seems to show that the entire upper part of the car was destroyed or came off: engine cover, air box, roll hoop, everything. I […]
Kris commented on the post, FIA makes last-minute cuts to radio message ban 8 years, 8 months ago
Until I saw it explicitly in the list here, I hadn’t thought as far as the overtake button. I’ve grown tired of the engine micromanagement that we’ve been seeing with drivers being “given permission” to press the […]
Kris commented on the post, F1's brushes with disaster: Top ten lucky escapes 10 years, 9 months ago
I scrolled down looking for mention of Clive James after hearing his voice on the Tambay vid.
I’d no idea he’d done anything in F1. I suppose I’m too young to have seen some of the earlier stuff… I’ll enjoy […]
