Would’ve thought a sprint race in place of qualifying to determine the grid for Sunday would’ve made more sense (and been simpler), but hey.
Bit of an essay this, and is just my interpretation:
I get the impression that manufacturers like Renault and Mercedes are now actively attempting to create distance between their main brands and performance […]

‘[…] but worked his way up to eighth place by the chequered flag, which remains the largest haul of points that car has taken in the last seven races.’
Oof, I didn’t realise this. Anyway, Russell deserves a […]

‘We race as one.’
Boy, does this smack of hypocrisy.
What some people don’t seem to grasp is that it’s not just deforestation (removal of trees) that is the issue, but the loss of habitat for species that occurs as a consequence of this. It is habitat that cannot be […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Brawn: Italian GP shows why F1 needs reverse grid races 7 months, 1 week ago
Look at the BTCC’s approach: excess ballast based on race finishing position (not championship), three races per weekend that are over in the blink of an eye and usually curtailed due to safety cars, compulsory […]

Harsh truth is Gio looked to have pace when he debuted for Sauber in China in 2017, but his qualifying and race crashes overshadowed the highs of that weekend’s performance and have unfortunately proved an […]
I wouldn’t call Norris’ move on Perez ‘unnecessary’ – the McLaren driver was far faster than the Force India, and if Norris hadn’t made the move, he wouldn’t have been able to close to within 5 seconds of Hamilton […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Ferrari to confirm Vettel departure on Tuesday, German media claim 11 months, 1 week ago
Can only see Ricciardo taking the seat, which would be massive if he does. His agent must be trying to break the door down at Maranello as we speak. Personally think Alonso won’t be coming back to F1, Hulkenberg I […]

:O :O :O Beautiful. What a an absolute stunner! That red Honda logo is the icing on the cake. Hope it looks as good on track, but wow, what a perfectly poised livery. Best looking car I’ve seen in years.
Final two lines reflect the exact same conclusion I came to yesterday.
Newfangled commented on the post, FIA confirms F2 driver Anthoine Hubert was killed in Spa crash 1 year, 7 months ago
Eau/Radillion the most dangerous sequence of corners anywhere in the world in the modern era. I never want to see drivers injured or killed after accidents there, but this is the formidable reality of Spa, and I […]
A damaging quality of a once successful, now struggling team such a Williams is to continue to strategise like you’re a frontrunner whilst you’re a backmarker. Racing more conservatively is fine when you’re […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Video: First look at an onboard lap of Vietnam's F1 track 1 year, 12 months ago
Reminds me of South Korea (basically due to a majority of the lap being composed of mind-numbingly long straights and dull as dishwater 90 rights and lefts, with a ‘where the hell did that come from a why is the […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Ferrari stands by decision to swap Vettel and Leclerc 2 years ago
The Masters was live whilst I was watching the F1 highlights on C4. I switched to the golf after seeing Ferrari switch Leclerc and Vettel around again, and didn’t look back. Utterly boring favouritism so early in the season.
Newfangled commented on the post, Magnussen thrilled by Haas performance despite "s*** lap" in Q3 2 years, 1 month ago
All these doomsayer journalists declaring Haas are going to have a ‘harder time of it’ this year. Not going by this performance, which matches the team’s grid positions from last year. What’s more, Haas’ gap to P1 […]
