I like to think Spa will find its way into (or back into) the calendar, because it always does. It’s been a long, long time (early 2000s?) since I’ve thought of the Belgian GP as ‘safe’ and a definite long-term […]
Neil commented on the post, Hamilton sees potential for wins in second half of season 6 days, 1 hour ago
Hope so, three teams going for wins would be great. I can’t see them going into a race weekend as favourites in 2022, but there could be a couple of tracks that suit them enough to give them a real shot against […]
Neil commented on the post, How did Alpine let its star driver slip through its fingers? 6 days, 8 hours ago
It probably benefits both parties.
Alpine maybe might have wanted Alonso for 2023, as he’s still their best driver… but his age is an unavoidable issue. Even if they had kept him for 2023, for 2024 I really […]
Neil commented on the post, Alonso to join Aston Martin in 2023 on "multi-year" deal 6 days, 12 hours ago
The greatest probability is that he had a choice of not winning at Alpine, or not winning at Aston Martin. So he went with the one who’ll pay him the most to not win.
Makes perfect sense for a (hate to say it, […]
Neil commented on the post, Caldwell banned from next F2 round after another track limits penalty 1 week ago
Seems a bit silly to award more penalty points for accidentally driving on the wrong side of a white line a few times, and potentially gaining 0.05 seconds, than for irresponsible driving in the pit lane.
Neil commented on the post, Verstappen prefers title fight against Leclerc after Hamilton rivalry 1 week, 1 day ago
Suppose title fights are more fun when the other team helps you out so much… almost approaching thank you card territory.
I much prefer a title race without the pathetic off-track (and on-track) behaviour we […]
It’ll be a very sad day when he goes, but I think he’ll only stay while he remains one of the very small elite at the top. Once he dips far enough from his peak, he’ll know it and won’t stick around to be […]
Don’t think Perez should have given up the place. Putting your car alongside is all well and good, but if the defending driver has to take evasive action to avoid contact, or if he’s not left enough space to make […]
Neil commented on the post, Ferrari defend "proper and right" decision to pit Sainz after he passed Perez 2 weeks ago
To stay out would have been risk in terms of safety and reliability in terms of tyre life.
It makes sense with that sentence. And if they admit taking the FLAP point off Verstappen was a factor […]
Neil commented on the post, Why F1's new, no-nonsense approach to track limits is only a partial success 2 weeks, 5 days ago
No matter what the sporting event, I can’t stand them. They don’t add anything positive to the atmosphere of the event, nor do they indicate any special level of commitment on the part of the ‘tribe’ that brings […]
Neil commented on the post, Another fan's experience of harassment last weekend – and why F1 must act 3 weeks, 3 days ago
Tribalism and ‘passion’ for individual drivers is an influence, but it’s mostly just down to attracting the wrong kind of people.
The fans in Austria have nothing on Ferrari fans at Imola or Monza during […]
Neil commented on the post, Did the stewards give the right penalties for Russell and Gasly's collisions? 3 weeks, 5 days ago
Not really sure with Russell and Perez. I think probably that was a racing incident – Perez pinched Russell very tight and onto the kerb, and Russell clearly tried to keep the unnaturally tight line but slipped […]
Neil commented on the post, Verstappen, Leclerc and Hamilton condemn 'shocking, horrible' abuse of fans 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Really don’t think it’s a great deal to do with Netflix, Liberty, or anything else. Maybe a little bit polarisation and general online toxicity as soon as the names of certain drivers are mentioned, but only a […]
Neil commented on the post, Sainz: Ferrari accepted I was right not to follow "10 car lengths" instruction 1 month ago
Silly request, and pointless. If there was one racing lap to go, dropping 10 car lengths at the restart would probably have protected Leclerc, but with so many left Sainz – or whoever Sainz lost a position to by […]
Neil commented on the post, Seven arrests over track protest during British Grand Prix 1 month ago
Whilst I am very relieved that Zhou has not suffered any serious injury, the thing that I took away from this crash was the fact that the car managed to leapfrog the tyre barrier and go into the wire fence. This […]
Neil commented on the post, Sainz leads Hamilton and Norris in second practice at Silverstone 1 month, 1 week ago
I find names far easier to work with. Not just as a British fan with regards Silverstone, but at any track with corner names.
A name is a name, and I associate it with a certain corner on a certain track. […]
