Mark commented on the post, What worked and what failed in F1's sprint qualifying experiment 2 weeks, 3 days ago
It was strange. It sort of worked and failed at the same time.
I think the potential is there, It didn’t really work, but it’s just held back by these cars struggling to follow. With the 2022 cars, it could be […]
Said this in another article comment, but Perez tried to wall of death it around the outside, kept his foot in it and was already running wide, out of grip and out of space regardless of what Norris […]
Mark commented on the post, Mazepin and Latifi given 30s penalties, Raikkonen 20s, others cleared 1 month ago
How the hell has Norris wound up earning the same amount of penalty points as Kimi?
Landos was even debatable as a penalty at all and 5 seconds was harsh. No crash, hard racing on an overly ambitious move from […]
Mark commented on the post, Norris two penalty points away from ban after Perez incident 1 month ago
I don’t think the Norris one was worthy of a penalty. There are subtleties of difference between the 2 similar incidents that make them different contextually.
Perez is already running in too deep on exit […]
Mark commented on the post, FIA to force F1 teams to slow down their pit stops 1 month, 1 week ago
How many times have Red Bull sent a car onto track with a loose wheel?
It has happened, but far less than other teams who are far slower.
Seems like their speed isn’t an issue.
Mark commented on the post, Ocon and Alpine agree contract extension until 2024 1 month, 2 weeks ago
I bet it’s 3 years with a clause that if Mercedes come in for him, he can go.
I still think he’s more likely to end up in a Merc alongside Hamilton than Russell is.
Mark commented on the post, Ferrari surprised to be quickest for the second weekend running 1 month, 4 weeks ago
Think we’re all a bit surprised.
It’s easy to say they were great in Monaco so Baku, another street circuit should suit them, but it wasn’t expected to translate here given the long straights and slightly […]
Mark commented on the post, Norris says red flag penalty is 'unfair' and a 'bad decision' 1 month, 4 weeks ago
Suck it up, Lando. It’s fair. It’s a breach of flag protocol. Something the FIA (rightly) will not be lenient on, and can not be lenient on. They have to be respected to the full letter of the rule for everyones […]
Mark commented on the post, Norris given three-place grid drop for red flag error 1 month, 4 weeks ago
The penalty is fair enough.
At first i thought it was harsh given the late call and uncertainty of crossing the solid line again, but
The issue isn’t really the extra lap, it’s after he decides to stay […]
Mark commented on the post, "Difficult to take" not starting home race after taking pole – Leclerc 2 months, 1 week ago
It’s interesting that Ferrari say it’s the left driveshaft at fault when it was the right side that took the whack on the barrier. Can only guess either bouncing over the kerb did it or the shock on the right went […]
It was a very square impact with the rear to the barrier, to be honest, if you’re going to whack the back end off an armco, that’s how you want to do it, short of sticking the driveshaft through the box there’s […]
This whole talk that young people somehow have shorter attention spans, It’s nonsense.
They will sit 8-10 hours on a video game. They will look at their phone aimlessly 2 hours no problem. They will binge watch […]
Mark commented on the post, McLaren to race in one-off Gulf livery at Monaco Grand Prix 2 months, 2 weeks ago
I thought the same, but i think it’s just the studio lighting.
It’ll probably look right in daylight, on track.
No, but compared to a world where they offer us 2 races in Russia or Abu Dhabi instead… I’ll take it.
I do wonder if he’s in F1 a year too early for his development. He seems lost and a bit flustered. I don’t think he’s arrogant, more over excitable.
Maybe he needed another year in F2 just to learn his craft […]
That’s my point about context. You can’t just selectively quote 1 part of what he says and decide on the meaning without taking everything else he says into consideration to frame the context.
What he is […]
To be fair, his comments are getting taken totally out of context.
He’s only saying he doesn’t understand why he has a totally different feel to the car v Gasly to such an extent their feedback to engineers is […]
Mark commented on the post, Norris: Q1 incident with Mazepin "cost me quali today" 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Another session, another incident Mazepin is causing/caught up in.
Has he actually had a clean session this season where he hasn’t either spun, crashed or blocked somebody?, I can’t think of one.
Ah well, at […]

Mark commented on the post, Mazepin penalised for holding up leader Perez despite late warning by team 3 months ago
He’s terrible. As in, up there with the worst levels of terrible. Out of his depth.
Not only does he seem to get involved in some incident almost every session, but his pace… the guy is almost a rolling […]
