Michael commented on the post, Bottas 'left Russell nowhere to go' in crash – Brawn 2 weeks, 6 days ago
@mrboerns Good point – most people get as upset if the car in front takes a few seconds to go when the light turns green… These guys actually have good reason to be upset :-)

@mrboerns well, my passion is slowly killed by this inability to punish mistakes. but changing a gearbox, THAT just NEEDS punishment… Same. It’s putting the sport in disrepute which is a punishable offence, even f […]

@mrboerns unfortunately chroming the cars has a thermal effect – I’ve always been disappointed we lost the ultra-shiny look in FE

heh, yeah was thinking that too @mrboerns
Certainly looks nicer (in isolation) than what they had last year, and surely better deal than the Rich Energy one, but this team does not quite inspire confidence in […]

@mrboerns I meant more during the 1990s and 2000s and early 2010s. Purely from memory, McLaren ran 3 and 4 in 2001, 2002, 2006, 2011 and 2012. I’m probably forgetting a few seasons.
minnis commented on the post, Hamilton contract to be settled before testing at the latest – Wolff 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Toto previously held a 30% share, so he’s only actually bought another 3 1/3%!!!
@mrboerns I think you’ll find that sale and leaseback deals are very, very common. Most large corporates don’t own their buildings, they lease properties fitted out exactly to their requirements because having a […]
Balue commented on the post, Bahrain Grand Prix stopped on first lap as Grosjean survives horror crash 5 months, 1 week ago
@mrboerns It’s really incredible
Easy answer: because it’s cheeper
On a more serious note, the FIA seriously need to think about from now on. The whole track needs to be up the highest safety standards, not just the most critical […]
@mrboerns I thought the same.
David BR commented on the post, Will Vettel justify Aston Martin's faith in their "statement of intent" signing? 8 months ago
@mrboerns Captures my sentiments. I don’t see any of the three (Vettel, Perez, Stroll) as inspiring options. Vettel will be a better ‘narrative’, but then not necessarily a good one for RP as everyone will be […]

that should ahve been @mrboerns, sorry about that extra S
socksolid commented on the post, No change this year to red flag tyre rule which Norris called "stupid" 8 months ago
@mrboerns I think this red flag tire change has had a negative effect every time we have had a red flag. I proposed earlier that this rule needs changing but there is a safety factor to it. I think tire change […]
@mrboerns i have been confused about this too during these past few days. I Don’t remember this tow thing being an issue even when F1 had 2006-2008 aircraft level cars which were wide and with huge wings. The s […]
I’m just guessing out loud, @mrboerns, but I think it is due to the tow now extending much further back (maybe due to the latest front wings as suggested above).
When the slipstream was only a few seconds it d […]
@mrboerns The way this season is transpiring your point is admittedly coming to pass.
What i was aiming for was that if the season was 8-12 races then it would give the detractors of the eventual championship […]
@mrboerns Hamilton’s drive was great, but he had no challenge whatsoever after the start. There was not a single lap in the whole race where he was under pressure from behind. It’s not his fault, but you can […]
F1oSaurus commented on the post, Haas not responsible for loss of pace since last year – Magnussen 9 months, 4 weeks ago
@mrboerns I know right? How can he not tell. Probably more likely that it’s PR talk that he’s not allowed to say the engine has less power.
