Group E – They are two distinct incidents.
– Max should not have touched Lewis’ car.
– Lewis’ car should not have such a big hole in it in that place.
Unless some evidence can be produced to connect the […]
@peartree What’s better is not pressing the “Radio” button when insulting or swearing at other drivers. Funnily enough, we don’t need to know about such things.
@jehannes Explain to drivers that simply because you want to say something doesn’t mean you have to press the “Radio” button at the same time?
Lewis said he tried to remain positive, not that he was necessarily successful ;)
I remember that insulting people was considered unacceptable and very much punishable – until secondary school where insults against people lower in the power dynamic was acceptable but not those equal or higher. […]
@john-h Also, thanks to F1TV, I’m not sure it’s even possible to exclude a statement from the radio record any more.
I suspect Wolff and Horner parse “collide” differently and that each of their statements makes sense in the context of their individual parsing.
Wolff is thinking along the lines of overenthusiastic title […]
@petebaldwin Unfortunately, they only sold themselves until viewing figures came in. Not sure why Sky would consent to an extra race if it means they get fewer viewers in total across the weekend than with the […]
Unfortunately qualifying sprints don’t increase the number of races, as far as I or anyone I know is concerned. At best, they’re regarded as turning the Sunday race into a two-parter (thus, extending the length of […]
@stefmeister That is a sad reduction in quality. While the 2003 review had virtually no “bonus footage”, it at least had someone talking about the footage who was not one of the original commentators. To go worse […]
@gsagostinho On this point, you are correct. 6% in favour and 30% against would have left a suspiciously high number of “don’t knows”…
I’m surprised you associate Lando with “no polarisation”. Among the younger fans on Twitter and Tumblr, he is (inexplicably in my view) the most polarising driver of the lot.
@aapje They also favour innovation that appears to have a purpose. F1 has gone down a cul-de-sac in terms of relevance to younger fans.
@zecrunch87 Also, some of the younger ones deliberately boycotted the survey due to a combination of bad pricing for Monza and Liberty making it clear that it doesn’t really care what fans think of sprint race segments.
The problem is that a lot of the tech young people care about has no place in F1 and won’t for some years. Look at the tech in road car ads: all-electric, cost-reducing tech, sophisticated GPS, rudimentary AI, […]
@geemac Fans do have a reasonable idea of what they want – as individuals. The problem is that those desires aren’t necessarily compatible with one another.
I saw multiple tifosi-frequented internet sites request a boycott of this survey. The last straws being the ridiculous pricing of Monza tickets and sprint races being presented as a fait accompli despite Liberty […]
@gsagostinho It’s not exactly a roar of approval though – especially since lots of people saw the question (or simply how F1 Fan Voice had previously handled the question) and refused to submit the survey at all in protest.
@keithedin The 2015 survey, if I recall correctly, allowed partial responses (because there was a bunch of optional sponsorship-related bonus questions that I for one elected not to do).
No, it’s based in neocapitalism, which explains the particular flavour of reporting inaccuracy we see here. (In the Soviet Union, a bad statistic like this would likely have been completely hidden, rather than […]
