The magic number is zero.

mhop commented on the post, Losail track limits rules overhauled after first session 1 year ago
Are you serious? If so I’d say “be careful what you wish for”.
I really can’t understand this opinion (that has taken hold of Brundle and others) that wants MORE steward activity. More arbitrary time penalties […]
mhop commented on the post, F1 could drop DRS "in medium term" if 2022 regulations succeed – Seidl 1 year ago
The one word that is not mentioned enough in these conversations: “slipstream”.
Slipstream is absolutely essential to good racing in F1.
It’s a beautiful, natural phenomenon which allows one car to draw […]
mhop commented on the post, 'Inspector Max' may have handed Hamilton a get-out-of-jail-free card 1 year ago
So many unqualified assumptions from Keith Collantine. First, it’s not clear from the footage presented that he actually touches the car. It looks like he’s simply using his hand as a reference for measuring the […]
mhop commented on the post, Verstappen's post-race burn-out celebration "will not be tolerated" again 1 year, 5 months ago
Has Keith Collantine actually watched this incident? Verstappen was only four wheels off the track for a tiny fraction of a second. To suggest Leclerc could have overtaken him is preposterous. A complete non story.
mhop commented on the post, Stewards penalise Albon for "unusual" move on Magnussen after crash 2 years, 4 months ago
What an awful decision by the stewards. They keep going back to their instincts to destroy the sport, don’t they?
Magnussen made an error. In this scenario he should know he’d be at risk of the attempted […]
mhop commented on the post, Verstappen and Hamilton want F1 to remove DRS "Band-Aid" 3 years, 8 months ago
DRS = the Destroying Racing System.
DRS simply allows the fastest cars to move to the front more quickly. It is at the core of everything that is wrong with the sport, and, I believe, the main reason behind the […]
mhop commented on the post, Why a point for fastest lap would be a change for the worse 3 years, 9 months ago
The worst part of this dreadful idea is that you can expect the commentary of the last five laps (or more) of every race to be dominated by the utterly tedious question of “who will go for the fastest lap?”. Kill me now.

1st – 100
2nd – 80
3rd – 60
4th – 50
5th – 40
6th – 30
7th – 20
8th – 10
9th – 8
10th – 6
11th – 5
12th – 4
13th – 3
14th – 2
15th – 1
Retro, but modern. Perfect.
This is a ridiculous decision by the stewards. The mitigating circumstances are a load of nonsense.
This has NOTHING to do with whether it was safe or not. The rule states simply that you cannot cross that […]

Been saying this for years!! The mess around this issue exemplifies the muddled thinking at FIA/FOM in recent times. At each race there should only be one designated harder/softer compound (and, if you must, […]
mhop commented on the post, Williams unlikely to announce Massa replacement soon 5 years ago
Regarding di Resta, my guess is that one of the main things that has changed is that Mercedes are now offering him their financial backing once again.
After his run at Hungary, it was clear that Toto and co […]

I think if you replaced Azerbaijan with South Africa, and maybe Bahrain with India, you’d be looking at pretty much the ideal global spread for Formula 1 at the moment:
8 races in Europe
4/5 races S/E.Asia
