Neil commented on the post, "They love it": Brawn enthused by fans' early reaction to sprint qualifying 5 days, 23 hours ago
Liberty/Brawn have developed a wonderful ability to only pay attention to the fans who agree with them.
Even the poll on the data collection and market research site (sorry, the ‘place where we listen to […]
Neil commented on the post, Rate the race: 2021 British Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying 5 days, 23 hours ago
But -1 for spoiling my enjoyment of, and the whole feel of, qualifying. -1 for ending when it seemed to be heading for the most interesting part. -1 for spoilering exactly how each car’s race pace is for the […]
Neil commented on the post, What worked and what failed in F1's sprint qualifying experiment 6 days, 4 hours ago
I didn’t really like any of it. First thoughts:
I’m with Vettel on qualifying. Pole is the quickest in actual qualifying, not a race.
It required me to commit more time to watching F1 this weekend than […]
Neil commented on the post, Formula 1 presents first full-size model of 2022-spec car 1 week, 1 day ago
I like it. It doesn’t look as aggressive or stylish as a 2021 car, but the main thing is that it’s more of a racing car and less of a carriage in a procession.
Just hope the ‘correct’ images are the photos of […]
Neil commented on the post, Leclerc takes pole again as five drivers crash in qualifying 1 month, 2 weeks ago
I have a love/hate relationship with sessions like that. I can’t stand the constant interruptions and delays caused by reds, and I’m no fan of drivers losing out through no fault of their own, but it’s nice to see […]
Neil commented on the post, F1 considering more bonus points for sprint race 'grand slam' 1 month, 3 weeks ago
That Guardian article… I used to work in the world of content production and occasionally, someone would randomly ping an email at me asking for an article on something I didn’t really know anything about. […]
Neil commented on the post, Mercedes drivers see pace-setters Ferrari as genuine contenders in Monaco 2 months ago
Monaco’s weird enough that you never know… Portimao aside, Leclerc’s been qualifying well this year, and Sainz is probably starting to get a feel for the car too. All they need is one great lap and they have a […]
Neil commented on the post, Deledda allowed to race in Monaco despite failing to qualify 2 months ago
I called him a perfect example of the phrase “waste of a seat” when he was announced in F2. I normally like being proved right, but when there’s a limited number of seats, all his performances are doing is f […]
Neil commented on the post, Gasly given penalty point for "very silly" grid error 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Sigh, another silly penalty point.
Obviously it’s incredibly unlikely to ever happen, but imagine someone getting a race ban and losing the championship because they parked their car a few inches from where […]
@roger-ayles I’ve noticed the same, but I don’t think they ever sound convincing. They deliver their own natural lines in a totally different way… when they’re peddling whatever they’ve been fed by Liberty, via […]
Doesn’t sound too ‘out there’… I imagine Gio and Mick think exactly the same way towards Ferrari, and the four Red Bull drivers are all working for the same company too. They’re part of teams that go beyond […]
Neil commented on the post, Russell's move on Bottas was "too aggressive considering it was a Mercedes" – Wolff 3 months ago
I’m interpreting this differently to some others… he’s not suggesting Russell should treat a Mercedes differently to other cars because it’s a Mercedes.
He’s suggesting there’s little point going full-on and […]

F1: Following in another car’s dirty air is such a problem for us, no other series has it this bad.
Extreme E: Hold my beer…
Neil commented on the post, 10 years of DRS: Should F1 wean itself off push-button passes? 3 months, 3 weeks ago
F1 should certainly aim to remove it at some point, but that point sadly isn’t now.
“Red Bull were actually given an instruction immediately by myself,” he added. “I suggested that they relinquish that position as listed in the sporting regulations, which they did.”
“It wasn’t for exceeding t […]
I’d much prefer that approach to the current one. Provides a lot more incentive to immediately give back the position and carry on the battle.
The idea that a driver can in theory ‘cheat pass’ someone, then just trundle off and pull out the necessary gap, is something I really dislike about the standard five second penalty for that offence. So I’m glad […]
