- F1 2020 (spoilers abound)
Very good news, assuming it’s true.

But, ahead of the 2020 campaign, Motorsport Broadcasting are reporting that Channel 4 can now show extended highlights of all 22 races on the calendar in addition to continued live coverage of the British Grand Prix.
That translates to Formula 1 fans being able to watch 70 per cent of the races now compared to 50 per cent in 2019, with the race edit now up to approximately 60 minutes instead of 45.BigJohnSubscriber
I know it’s not the same sport as it used to be but I still try to listen in live to the Radio5 coverage. At least up to the first crash. I now record the highlights show and fast forward it while keeping an eye on the top left corner until the “replay” box shows. Then I stop, rewind a bit, watch the incident that justified the replay, listen to the analysis of said incident then hit fast forward.Posted 1 month agoKlunkMember
bring back ground effect (oh and active suspension while we’re at it)
I’m no so sure, the cars still had front and rear wings (the air coming off the ground effect and rear wing will affect turn-in on the following car). So the regulation on vanes and end plate and vortex generator would be ban the lot ?Posted 3 weeks ago
Looks like Stoll snr has done a deal to keep Aston Martin afloat, which will remove the confusing Aston Martin Red Bull Honda sponsorship thing from 2021 and see the crappily named Racing Point team become Aston Martin.
Cool. They were talking about this on Missed Apex before the deal was done, sounded like AM were in fairly deep do-do.Posted 2 weeks ago
Probably nothing like what will appear at the first test – but Haas have uploaded pictures of their 2020 car…

Seb is a fab driver if the car drives like its on rails, if the car is difficult to drive hes toast, I think Le Clerc could turn out to be the same, Hamilton has the ability to drive a car thats pretty much undriveable to most everyone else, like schumacher in his heyday. Its that ability thats made Lewis 6 time champ.
I hope Albon does take it to Max, Max also seems to have the I can drive an undriveable car thing.
I dont think Lewis will ever go to Ferrari, its not his kind of team mentality.Posted 1 week ago
@jimster01 Ferrari didnt WANT Irvin to win, remember 3 wheels on my wagon at Nurburgring in 99?? They wanted Schmacher at all costs broken leg or no. They wouldnt know a good decision if it bit them on the arse.
Irvine won three of his four career GP wins between the ’99 British GP and the end of the season. Hashtag just sayin’.Posted 1 week ago
@pondo Oh I know, Ive been an F1 fan since 1985 but they had the chance to have Irvine as their champ and they stuffed it up royally and I mean how do you not have 4 wheels to stick on the car O.o, Ive never seen anything like that since eh and I wanted Irvine as champ as hes from Northern Ireland like me.
@daffy 🙂 I’m a Lewis fan as well but I still dont think he’d have gone for Ferrari *shrug* I’d also say Lewis isnt arrogant in that way….. at least I dont get that impression.Posted 1 week agodannybgoodeSubscriber
I see Jim Ratcliffe has said he fully expects Lewis to stay at Merc. Such a statement suggests to me that his sponsorship is contingent on that.
Coupled with the fact the rumours are that he’s going to be offered £180m to stay and no doubt some of that will come from Ineos I think it’s a fairly safe bet he’ll stay at Merc.Posted 1 week agomashrMember
3 out of 3 so far going to compromised cooling-MAX – woot
There’s a thought……. active aero isn’t allowed (fair enough), but what if they opened that up a bit to allow variable sidepod intakes? Aero folk are happy as they get to pick the fastest shapes, engine people are happy as they can open up for more air as required? Seems like there’d be little downside?Posted 1 week ago

Very expensive because it will require lots of windtunnel time, won’t improve the racing because it’ll give the teams with bigger budgets an even bigger advantage.Posted 1 week agoHughStewMember
When I wasa kid I used to love watching F1, then was less into it for many years. I now have loads of time sitting around (medical reasons) and I’ve got into following it again, I particularly like reading the Secret Aerodynamicist.
Hamilton is clearly an immensely talented driver, but the vitriol he gets, especially on the BBC Have Your Say, is astonishing. Is it just racism or is there something about him that riles stuffy old Bufton-Tuffton types.Posted 1 week agoPJM1974Member

Probably racism. They also probably have extremely unfulfilling lives, tiny and semi-functioning genitalia and like to get angry about things, especially if they involve people of colour turning up and doing rather well.Posted 1 week agomechanicaldopeSubscriber

Never understood it. He seems to be very open with his thoughts and says what he is thinking but gets flak for it. I genuinely think that he gets nowhere near the amount of credit he is due. He is a absolute legend and it is sad that more people don’t recognise his talent for what it is.Posted 1 week ago
