It’s great that they are taking data and refining the halo to offer ever better protection. But Formula 1 is getting desperately close to negligence if they don’t move to an Aeroscreen-like design that also […]

I wouldn’t expect that to accomplish anything.

The second collision between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen demonstrated Formula 1 is experiencing its most fiercely contested championship fight in a generation.
I’m going to argue that you’re either […]
Why would you allow driver X, who has completed only 265km, to impede driver A who has already completed 269 or 271km?
If you raced from point R to point S, which is after all the origin of this whole sport, […]

Carlos is right, and I don’t think there is a way to have a genuine race (however “sprint” or “qualifying” you may want to call it) that ends in a crescendo comparable to 10 drivers going all out against the clock […]
there is no way he would be driving an F1 car with only one hand
Indeed, Robert is so well-loved that several teams are pretending he’s not driving their car one-handed, and that that is probably not the best idea for an F1 driver.
Well, his state-funded sponsor package may also help.
Robert Kubica – down one arm, and probably in need of a new set of glasses, too.
Due to their cost structure, “synthetic fuels” have basically no chance of being viable as a substitute for people who believe continuing to run their ICE-based cars is a financially beneficial (vulgo: cheap) way […]
Willemarck believes that motorsport can play a crucial part in this quest by developing e-fuels and other zero-carbon technologies, something I fully subscribe to.

I’m not sure how this is consistent with the penalties at the Red Bull Ring.
Yes. Yes. Yes!
Imagine replacing the most perfect hour of motorsport with 20 seconds of chaos and a half-an-hour, nap-inducing processional.
And by things swinging in their favour he means Max engine blowing up. That’s how far off the McLarens were in terms of pace today.
Oh no, someone “admitted” to something, again.
Guys, this being your work you probably should be able to come up with a second and maybe third verb to use every once in a while.

I vote “garbage.”
And this whole idea is, not just this specific instance.
Proesterchen commented on the post, Not my best qualifying session, admits second-placed Hamilton 1 week, 5 days ago
“Sky blue,” admits X-placed driver A.
“Water wet,” admits Y-placed driver B.
“I have an unhealthy affinity for the verb “to admit”,” admits no F1 journalist ever.
