I’m all for trying new things and I was in favour of the sprint races. But it seems to just be a bit of a non-event.
There is too much risk and not enough reward, so drivers don’t try anything exciting.
It was a really strange crash. They all went off at the same place one after the other. There was no on-track contact or anything like that. Really strange.
When that many cars go off on the same corner, you […]
Napier Railton commented on the post, F1 team mate battles at mid-season: Gasly vs Tsunoda 1 month, 1 week ago
After a really promising season in F2 I expected more from Tsunoda.
However Alpha Tauri fits Gasly like a glove and he performs well there. Too mad the nature of the team probably won’t allow him to stick […]
I would never watch a race on a phone… I want too sit down give it space in my day and watch on a decent size TV.
However never underestimate some people. I saw a guy watching the film Gravity on a phone on […]
Surely they need to make budget allowances for crash / repair costs.
If there is a blame system then there is going to be a lot of nasty and un-fun arguments. It could potentially lead into other Motorsport and […]
I’m with Lucas, electric carts or something similar at the Olympics would be sweet.
The problem arises when you start thinking more about it. You would have different Motorsports events, two wheels as well as […]
This kind of stuff should never have started.
F1 is a lovely bit of escapism, bringing real world political issues to the forefront is spoiling it.
These causes are lovely but don’t think for a moment that […]
Napier Railton commented on the post, Williams no longer dependent on drivers who bring money – Capito 1 month, 3 weeks ago
seems a bit unfair to put Maldonado in the picture… yeah he brought a lot of money but he was also the gp3 champion and was incredibly fast… when his car wasn’t in the wall… which it often was
in the […]
Napier Railton commented on the post, Will Formula 1's new cars for 2022 prove a change for the better? 1 month, 4 weeks ago
I’m looking forward to it, the renders look nice, I just hope we see some decent levels of variety.
As long as they are still the fastest cars in the world, that’s really the most important thing.
If they […]

Lance does seem like a pretty good driver these days.
He’s clean, consistent and a very good starter.
We just need a crazy race of attrition to see the best from him. For some reason that’s where Lance really stands out
it’s going to be difficult to get people of different “diverse categories” involved when the number of teams if locked at ten and the team sizes are all constrained by a budget cap.
If this is the kind of thing […]
all this optimism has to pay off some time
Napier Railton commented on the post, Williams preparing backup plan in case Mercedes sign Russell 2 months, 3 weeks ago
I would go further and say that mercedes is on the way down. Next season will be under a budget cap which means mercedes will have had to downsize, they won’t have the same level of backing they have been used to. […]

I really like that picture of Nikita and Fernando.
Young guy is probably meeting his childhood hero, Nikita was only little when Alonso was winning he championships.
Say what you want about him, Nikita has […]

You spend enough time in America, someone there will call you racist.
In all seriousness, that article is written really aggressively. It almost reads like a call to arms.
I hope America can get over this […]
Not sure we’ll see that many retro F1 liveries in the future.
Most of what are considered classic liveries are made to make the car look like a cigarette box.
They looked nice, but not exactly TV friendly anymore.
I think we all like a good looking f1 car, but have you ever thought about what your favourite era of car design was. As we are about to see a whole new generation of car designs in 2022, I thought it would be a good idea to ask this question.
Instead of simply splitting car designs into different decades, I kind of want to try splitting up the…[Read more]
Toto is telling us again that this is not an indication of mercedes pace. And they don’t think they have the fastest car.
After 7 or 8 years at the front of F1 you have to admire his consistency. Maybe one day […]

Not posting on social media for a few days.

Well the next big rule change is based around aero.
The last time there was a whole new aero formula (2009) the field was very close. Hopefully it will be the same case again.
