Newfangled commented on the post, Video: First look at an onboard lap of Vietnam's F1 track 2 years 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 […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Ricciardo denies leaving Red Bull to get away from Verstappen 2 years, 2 months ago
Maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but I formulated the opinion late last year that Red Bull were only going to go backwards.* It was based on what I considered to be some pretty sound rationale, including the looming […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Williams unlikely to run until Wednesday afternoon 2 years, 2 months ago
OK, serious question here:
Why aren’t they running the 2018 chassis? Mileage for the drivers to get re-accustomed to the physical demands of a Formula 1 car, experience with the tyres, and, when the new chassis […]
Newfangled commented on the post, Raikkonen: Alfa Romeo has made a "big step" since last year 2 years, 2 months ago
Bold prediction: Kimi is going to step on the podium this year. If he has a car he is happy with, he’s capable of producing results. Harmony with the machine wasn’t always the case at Ferrari, so this is a good omen!

Looks fast, so will probably be fast. Wouldn’t take much for Renault’s gains to make them everpresent in the top 6 were one of the ‘Big 3’ to produce a substandard package. My bet is on Red Bull.

Abysmal stadium section, characterless circuit. Can’t generate much beyond apathy at the prospect of losing it from the F1 calendar.
All the bleeps and blips creeping into race broadcasts are driving me to distraction. I can’t tolerate them and invasive graphics. Offer a variant with no additional FX and I’ll keep watching (that goes for F1 coverage, too).

Vocal minority out in force in this comment section.

Extremely smart move given Formula 1’s swing away from free-to-air in the UK. Really looking forward to this FE season. I honestly couldn’t care less that the cars are slower, and I think it’s fantastic that it’s […]

Some really smashing liveries in the FE field.

Ferrari seemingly adopting a Wacky Races-esque tyre shredder in case of incidental contact with certain opposition!
Newfangled commented on the post, Verstappen did 2018's best recovery drive yet – in eight laps 2 years, 7 months ago
AKA the entire field of division b cars let Max past, because it would’ve been pointless to lose time defending against a far faster Red bull that was effectively competing in a different race. It’s hardly an epic […]
In the far-flung future, I see the Wipeout concept as the natural conclusion for top-tier racing series (sans offensive weaponry). Power-up pads are just part of the journey. Anti-grav isn’t so far away.
Newfangled commented on the post, Whiting: Teams don't refer all driver complaints to me 2 years, 7 months ago
Speaking of miscellaneous gripes and oddities: I am *this* close to turning off Formula 1 television coverage due to the insufferable amount of unnecessary, intrusive, and downright maddening abundance of bleeps […]

Max: they aren’t going to stop handing out penalties to you just because you keep complaining about them. That’s not the way it works.
Newfangled commented on the post, Verstappen handed two penalty points after Bottas contact 2 years, 8 months ago
Utterly dreadful racecraft from Verstappen. Pettiness and immaturity costing him an additional place. If he had the correct mentality by letting Bottas through and not wasting time defending from the Finn, he […]
