I agree hence why I tried in my idea to make FP2 a bit competitive setting the sprint grid during that. Give teams a big window to go out set fastest laps which could come at the detriment to race pace. The two […]
Just have the practice sessions on Friday say two hour and a half hour sessions then going into Saturday it’s Qualifying, Sprint, Race. OR instead of Sprint setting the grid let people use the final practice s […]
RyanDixon commented on the post, De Vries deal "complicated" for Alfa Romeo because of Mercedes connection 1 week, 6 days ago
Alfa questioning taking De Vries because of his Merc links but are interested in Zhou who has Alpine hence Renault links? I’m not sure I follow his logic unless his logic was by complaining about De Vries being […]
I think what was rightfully pointed out in the article is “Modern weather models can predict to the minute let alone the hour, while statistics predict weather patterns.”
Going forward F1 should rewrite the […]
I think it was a member of this website that came up with a better solution in that if/when F1 races twice at the same track, which is a possibility still, then mix up the second race with this trial if it needs […]
@jerejj Thank you for bringing up the Q2 rule. That’s another artificial addition to the sport to force unpredictability. I’d personally allow any teams to start on any tyres they want after qualifying but teams […]
I say we should just let Pirelli make any type of tyre they want – high deg/low speed, low deg/high speed, all weather whatever and make teams just race with them. Lets stop trying to make F1 interesting by […]
I can envisage there being a few failures resulting in multiple safety cars which will allow teams to cool and manage their rubber. It’s a Merc 1-2, which order I don’t particularly care, and then maybe a Red Bull […]
RyanDixon replied to the topic Do you think F1 will hold any races with fans this year? in the forum Formula One 1 year, 2 months ago
I think that if F1 were to go to certain countries then perhaps the political side of things will kick in and fans will be allowed in; well at least ‘fans’ or the grandstands that are TV facing being filled by political volunteers. If these races, thinking USA, Brazil, China, Russia, were to be added towards the end of the year then I think the…[Read more]
RyanDixon commented on the post, Is it time to give up on holding the 2020 F1 season? 1 year, 4 months ago
Ross Brawn once remarked that he would like to run some non-championship races to test out ideas and other formats and sadly now seems a good time to possibly do it, depending on certain circumstances. IF, and […]
I would like to see Nyck de Vries get a chance, maybe a couple FP1 sessions to get a flavour and to test the waters. Not being tied down the McLaren academy now makes him a decent proposition for teams needing somebody to act as a simulator/reserve driver. Performing well in F2 and rumoured it was a toss-up between him and Norris for the last seat…[Read more]
The penalties were justified and follow the rules of F1 – open and closed cases. But like many have said the track needs to stop situations like this from happening. Make it so Danny Ric couldn’t go off track to o […]
If Liberty Media are serious about running this as a sport then they should try and call Ferrari’s bluff to level out the playing field. As a business however having a prestigious brand (and another manufacturer i […]

McLaren – Jack of all trades, master of none.
RyanDixon commented on the post, New practice rules will put rookies under too much pressure – Russell 2 years, 3 months ago
Well given the rumours (or truth?) that the F1 management want to remove one or two practice sessions, or having set-ups locked down before Saturday, this could be problematic.
Why not try and merge the two […]
100% agree with COTD and I would go some further and say that the track needs to be ‘cleaned up’. I understand it isn’t a primary F1 track and has many other uses but I was unable to catch most of the cover […]
RyanDixon replied to the topic Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the future of F1? in the forum Formula One 3 years, 8 months ago
I am optimistic about the future of F1 on a sporting level. I am pessimistic about the fans/support of F1.
On a sporting level I feel that Liberty Media genuinely have the sport in mind when making changes. As mentioned above Ross Brawn is the man with the plan and I feel with the support he will get from LM he can make F1 more competitive and…[Read more]
RyanDixon commented on the post, F1 needs less aero, more tyre grip to aid overtaking – Pirelli boss 3 years, 8 months ago
1. I agree with no DRS but the front wings need to be simpler and not ‘stock’. Many want stock but that ruins, personally, the ‘core’ of what F1 is.
2. Budget caps won’t work in F1. If you give team […]
