- F1 2019 (spoilers obviously)
Now, I’m no F1 engineering god but given Honda’s history of tight packaging & heat management in the McLaren, would you be pushing the limits on your first foray with their PU?
Ha, well that’s a good point, however I wouldn’t have been running a Honda PU in the first place, as I’d not have publicly slagged off the only competitive engine supplier I had available.
Fingers crossed they’ve done their sums right though, a three way battle with RB, Ferrari and Merc would be interesting. The removal of ‘party modes’ in quali should help them.
Very keen to see what MV can really do in a competitive car. Well Gasly too for that matter.Posted 4 months ago

Some of the best television I’ve seen in a very, very long time
I’d agree with that, I feel I did it a disservice in my post, it really is brilliant.Posted 4 months agoandylMember
Indeed it was excellent and brought a tear to my eyes at the end.
Grew up always wanting to meet Frank. Have to admit to being a lit bit enamoured with Claire, she has a strength of character. Shame about the relationship with her brother, looks like he needs a bit of a kick up the arse to make something of himself away from the race team, the opportunity is there.
Loved the bit about Mansell being a pain in the arse out of the car and the way they all rushed to see Frank in France and how close they all were was amazing. I started watching F1 in the late 80’s so didnt realise just how good Piquet was.Posted 4 months ago

Williams not ready for 1st day of testing
Totally embarrassing that for Williams. What a total shambles that team is becoming under the stewardship of Claire. It makes me fear for the future of them, it really does.Posted 4 months ago
… and we’re off!
RedBull in ‘looking like a Red Bull’ shocker.
Alfa livery – 7/10
Predictions for testing:
Merc – most laps but not fastest
RedBull – at least 2 engine changes this week
Ferrari – quick laps on the last day (or whenever Vettel’s driving as they won’t let LeClerc beat him)
Not sure who’s going to be at the back this year – McLaren & Williams have done a lot of work so hopefully it’ll just be a bigger midfield.with no real tail enders.Posted 4 months ago

Williams by a country mile – they just haven’t got the resources anymore. They’d probably be quicker re-badging an F2 car.
Such a shame, but the Williams way of stubbornly being independent just doesn’t work in F1 anymore.Posted 4 months ago
Claire Williams: “It is looking more likely than not that we will now not be in a position to run on track until Wednesday at the earliest. This is obviously extremely disappointing, but it is unfortunately the situation we are in. We will be getting the FW42 on track as soon as we are able.”
That’s not a confident statement.Posted 4 months agoBezSubscriber
All the cars are predicted to be 1.5 seconds slower this year due to the new aero regs.
I was under the impression that most teams had managed to regain most if not all of the losses from the regs. Even if they haven’t, it would still mean Williams would be falling at least half a second back from what was already the back of the grid.Posted 4 months ago
