It’s not a popular opinion apparently, and it’ll never happen for the reasons in your sarcasm lined quotes, but I would’ve canned Monaco years ago. Replace it with another street circuit if you want to keep one, […]
Well that would have been up to Bernie or whoever was on the negotiating table, could they afford to lose the British GP? If the answer was no, Silverstone really shouldn’t have put themselves into this position […]
Yeah but you have to bear in mind Massa was comprehensively beaten by Bottas last year 17-4 in qualifying, so for Stroll to be comprehensively beaten by Massa, it’s not good. He still looks seriously uncomfortable […]
We wanted tyres without the thermal degradation enabling them to push more but we still wanted tyres that degrade in wear. When the “ultra” soft tyre is doing 40 laps of any track then the range are too far hard IMO.
@psynrg I’m not sure how you’ve come to that conclusion when I started my sentence by saying that I don’t judge a race on overtakes. Battling is far more important and interesting to me but there wasn’t any of […]
I do not judge a race on the amount of overtakes.
Nor do I but there wasn’t even a hint of any overtakes, there was no battling of any sort. Vettel and Bottas got close, of course, but he never really looked […]

I like (or rather don’t) how the race is actually summed up in the short snippet on the homepage. Well, you could mention the opening crash and that would cover it.
Where was the strategy? All cars did one stop and with the exception of two drivers, all at about the same time. I’m not really sure how watching sector times can be exciting when most gaps are 5seconds+ with no […]
This has to be sarcasm, that wasn’t racing. Racing involves direct competition between the entrants, for 90% of this event it was just hotlapping with large gaps between cars. I don’t see why it would “deserve” above a 7.
I mean you’re entitled to your opinion but I’m curious what you saw that I didn’t. Boring at times? There was zero overtakes, zero attempts at an overtake and for 90% of the race the field was well spread out. […]

I remember in the latter half of last season they started showing replays of the incident that led to the penalties once they were announced, that unfortunately seems to have gone this year.
It wasn’t a great race but it was made even worse by the poor feed quality. There was never any live timing so we couldn’t see what the midfield was doing, they barely showed any replays and strangely even on […]

Firstly, diminishing returns. Harder and harder to go even faster. Secondly, weight. Even over 2016 this years cars are 20kg heavier. 702kg vs 722kg fully laden. What is it they say, 1kg is half a tenth roughly? […]
Simon commented on the post, Lap Time Watch: Should F1's new cars be quicker in Melbourne? 4 years, 6 months ago
The reason they’re not so much quicker, when you consider the engine power, fat tyres and aero they have is simple. Weight. The 2004 cars were 605kg, the 2017 cars are 728kg. Over 100kg heavier is a huge amount. […]
A lot of brave people calling a pole time before they’ve even turned a wheel!

Good lord no. Easiest ‘strongly disagree’ on a poll ever.
