    In the spirit of this conversation, I’m declaring that Paul DiResta is F1′s David Moyes:

    Scottish, Dour, talks a good game but consistently fails to achieve the results to back it up!

    I’m predicting that Ferrari will drop Felipe Massa and hire Felipe Nasr. Because that would be hilarious.

    Oh great…

    Now what people who can’t afford SKY supposed to do?

    The same thing the millions of football and cricket fans who can’t watch matches or the ashes live do – watch the highlights.

    I genuinely still laugh at this one: Every single time.

    Right, well I’ve got £30 left, so I’m going with:

    Qualifying winning margin: over 0.200: £15 at 17/20 (£27.75)
    and number of classified finishers over 18.5: £15 at 8/11 (£25.90.)

    next stage:
    Added detail to the rear wing:

    And added in the “plank.” I didn’t like the usual fibreboard look, so I did the plank in an aesthetically pleasing cherrywood. STYLISH.

    Right, the plan is to work from the back of the car forwards. From what I’ve read, the dimensions of the rear wing are unlikely to change massively, which gives us a baseline to work from. I could be wrong, so feel free to correct me. Making the first proper piece of bodywork also gave me the chance to test out @full-throttle-f1‘s suggested colour scheme!

    I left the actual wing elements white so that you can see the double element:

    I Could be thinking of something else, but isn’t the second race going to be a standing start as well?

    I have no issues with that – probably the best way is if you pick a shade of purple you like and post the RGB code, that way I can match the textures.

    @Guilherme to be honest, mine probably won’t get anywhere near as advanced as what you were trying to do, lol! Sketchup is pretty easy to use, but its nowhere near as advanced as AutoCad., so hopefully it’ll go pretty well.

    If anyone else wants to have a play with it though, the download link is here, and I can send you the baseline model I’ve thrashed up. I would have got more done this evening, but the wife chucked me off the PC so she could play candy crush!
