Compare the new car against the ground effect cars of the 70s and 80s and there’s one very noticeable difference. The new car doesn’t have a skirt. Yes we will see a return of the traditional venturi tunnels but […]
I don’t think that there will be a big difference to what we see today.
If that were true teams wouldn’t have written this year and in the case of Haas the last 2 years of car development off to focus on the 2 […]
One thing worth noting was at the first round of pit stops Bottas was closer to Verstappen (2.7s) than Verstappen was to Hamilton (3.1s) and despite closing a lot of ground wasn’t all that close to undercutting […]
I think this nonsense just goes to show what f1 lost when the Williams family departed. Claire would have forcibly reminded Russell and Toto he is a Williams driver, not a Mercedes one, by now. Frank may have even sacked him.

I’m sorry but in my view this comment from Toto is completely out of line. But George should have never launched into this manoeuvre, considering that the track was drying up, it meant taking risks and the other […]
I believe there’s one important difference that looking at the stats doesn’t show (And I’ll readily admit this is my uninformed opinion with no real evidence to back it up) Outside of Turkey Hamilton didn’t appear […]
My issue with the whole sprint races idea is that it wasn’t even thought up to answer the question of how to “improve the show”, its in answer to the question how do we make Saturdays’ more profitable to race […]
What I’m most surprised about is the bargeboards are now white. I thought teams left them carbon fibre black because it help hide the finer details of the geometry from cameras and prying eyes.
And as I said I believe all of those above Hamilton delivered consistently in a tight midfield battle […]
This may be an unpopular opinion but I think his drives from previous years are doing a lot of the heavy lifting here, based on his performances this year I actually had him around 7th. On ability he would still […]
Rereading it I can see why’d you think that. But if that was the case my top 10 would be a mirror of the bottom and trust me it isn’t . I admit for Albon and Vettel I got lazy just putting in a reference to their […]
Normally don’t do my own lists because I mostly agree with Keith, but this year I have some big differences so why not, here’s my bottom half of the rankings:
I couldn’t split the Haas […]
Thanks Robert, exactly my point.
Also @tonymansell this wouldn’t be new for F1. At the end of the 80’s we had Turbo V6’s, naturally aspirated V8′ and in-line 4’s all racing against each other. possible because […]
I can get behind the argument that F1 can be used to speed up the development of cleaner engine technology through competition, but that is completely undermined by the rules specifying what those solutions will […]

Decent driver and nice chap but never a world champion
Until this year I would of disagreed with this, just because if Hamilton retired he would be the experienced driver at Mercedes. But based on this year I […]
Similar to the COTD, the formula1 youtube channel now has a video of the post race radio messages from all drivers. For those interested pay close attention to Albon’s, to me it doesn’t sound like someone getting […]

TW: C’mon Bottas tell me what’s wrong
VB: You know what’s wrong you been going behind my back spending all that time with George

Steve Rogers commented on the post, 2020 Bahrain and Sakhir Grand Prix Star Performers 7 months, 3 weeks ago
I think Bottas deserves to be in the strugglers for both. In Bahrain he failed to make the progress through the field you’d expect after the puncture especially compared to Perez who a week later Having fallen to […]
Yes @f1osaurus, but stay ahead of him he did. And he managed despite the disadvantages of having older medium tyres, a Racing Point that in qualifying was 0.4s a lap slower than Mercedes and being Lance […]
Wait, Bottas’ tyres were fresher than Perez’s, 8 newer than Ocon’s and 7 laps newer than the mediums on Stroll?! What possible excuse does he have for dropping down the order so rapidly after the safety car!!
