@newfangled I haven’t had my morning coffee yet, but I did actually feel myself dozing off again on that straight.

@newfangled +1. Couldn’t have said it better.
Jere commented on the post, 'He should have let me pass': How Raikkonen saw Giovinazzi's crash 8 months, 1 week ago
@newfangled Melbourne actually, but yes, he looked to have pace at that time, although he crashed out in China both in QLF and the race.
Exactly. And it’s not like it’s a case of not having the ability, race strategy should be second nature to everyone on the pitwall. It’s more a case of toning it down when you have the fastest car to […]
@newfangled – very nice point, there. I think a good contrast will be RBR. In this engine era, they know they’re not contending for championships, so they’re happy to take risky/aggressive strategies hoping for a […]
Serg commented on the post, Williams unlikely to run until Wednesday afternoon 2 years, 2 months ago
@newfangled, most probably because all resources are deployed into the 2019 car. Servicing the 2018 chassis would result in even longer delays to run the new car.
lunaslide commented on the post, Raikkonen: Alfa Romeo has made a "big step" since last year 2 years, 2 months ago
@newfangled I really like that idea, and I don’t think it’s out of left field.
I think Alfa might has something special going on this year, the chemistry just seems to be right. Something I heard during testing […]
Euro Brun commented on the post, Formula E secures live digital broadcast deal with BBC 2 years, 5 months ago
For me this is at best a sideways step. Previously all races were live on Ch5 or Spike (both freeview). Now they’re all essentially online. You can’t set a digibox to record the red button. On TV […]
Matteo commented on the post, Whiting: Teams don't refer all driver complaints to me 2 years, 7 months ago
@newfangled – open up that linked tweet, and scroll down to see the 100 best laps by driver. :-)
Also, even though Alonso didn’t clock the fastest lap, he nailed the best average by a margin.
I’m sure he’s not […]
F1 Alleycat commented on the post, Hamilton did use Mercedes' 'party mode' in Q3, Wolff confirms 3 years ago
@newfangled +1 I’m not really a Hamilton fan but there’s no denying he’s a superb driver/qualifier. With that extra mode on the Merc, when Lewis puts the hammer down he’s almost unstoppable, at least in quali. […]
@newfangled Sure but with motorsports and flight simulators, it is much more like the real thing than other games. With FIFA, you control your players movements with thumb-sticks and buttons – that’s nothing like […]
Same here. Thought it was especially selfish considering that they offered him the swap if Ocon couldn’t get the job done. Instead, Perez defends over aggressively to keep his teammate behind and […]
@newfangled I can’t wait until ‘The DRS Years’ becomes a thing. Truly awful period of F1 and i fully expect DRS to ruin the racing in 2017 as well. Roll on 2018 – Can’t wait to finally see F1 change for the better, for once.
Eric commented on the post, "50% chance" Alonso will join Mercedes – de la Rosa 4 years, 5 months ago
Good points @newfangled we should also remember that Alonso had little option but to join McLaren after choosing to leave Ferrari. He’ll be doing everything he can to get the seat IMO. On Merc’s side I can see […]
@HoHum commented on the post, "50% chance" Alonso will join Mercedes – de la Rosa 4 years, 5 months ago
@newfangled, I’m having so much fun with this ! How about MB does a quiet deal with McL to swap their engines for Alonso, Honda to supply Manor.
