beneboy commented on the post, Overtaking “not as real” as it used to be – Alonso 5 days, 19 hours ago
I think I’ll have to disagree with Lewis on this one, the danger has never been a big deal for me. Seeing a big crash gets the adrenaline pumping, but I find them more terrifying than enjoyable, until I see the […]

Maybe occaisionally, but never with Jean-Marie Balestre, he made Bernie look sane and rational.
beneboy commented on the post, “People are falling out of love with F1” – Hamilton 1 month ago
I think he means something like:
“People are falling out of love with the sport and ultimately it will lead to you guys losing your jobs and also for us. I don’t want that.”
Or, if there are no fans, the […]
Before the Premier League was established, the old First Division didn’t televise live matches in the UK. When I was a kid the only club football that was shown live were a few cup games. You either […]
I appreciate I’m in a minority, but I consider Nico to be the most overrated driver in F1 and, Le Mans aside, think he’s had a poor season.
He’s had too many incidents, and seems unable to capitalise on the rare […]
So you’d fire the guy that’s won two consecutive championships, but keep the guy who looks mentally weak, is often unable to overtake competitors that are driving much slower cars, and who has come […]
I’d love to see F1 racing at an oval, and given the choice I’d take a GP on Indy’s Speedway than at any of the turgid sandbox circuits in the Middle East we have to put up with these days.
beneboy commented on the post, F1 ‘should be unpredictable like Race of Champions’ 5 months, 1 week ago
I’ve often thought that Friday should be for young development drivers and rookies. Give the regular drivers a practice session on Saturday morning, then in to qualifying.
I agree with you about the […]
Whenever I see him I can’t help but think of how lucky he is to be alive after his huge crash in Canada, that was a genuinely frightening crash to watch.
He may have lost his place in F1, but at least he got […]
beneboy commented on the post, Many drivers were eyeing Le Mans before date clash – Hulkenberg 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Lewis is partying because the season was over the day he won the WDC. I wouldn’t be reading too much into their relative performances at this stage of the season.

No one forces you to read them.
Personally I quite like it when Keith puts tweets into the roundup, I rarely use twitter so it’s nice to see stuff I’d otherwise miss.
What I find realoy annoying is people […]
beneboy commented on the post, “Not fair” to split strategies between cars – Rosberg 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Nico didn’t play amateur strategist asking to come in early to get past using the undercut.
And that’s another reason to add to the list of reasons Nico will never be WDC.
How typical of modern F1, the night of a race and none of the talking points are related to what happened on the track.
The politics and FIA incompetence used to be an interesting side point to the sport, now […]
beneboy commented on the post, “I did nothing wrong”: Bottas critical of Brazil penalty 5 months, 3 weeks ago
I agree with Todt, road accidents kill 400 times more people than terrorism, and twice as many French people will die on the roads this month, than were killed in the Paris attacks.
I’d happily support and […]
beneboy commented on the post, FIA amends plans for minute’s silence following Paris attacks 5 months, 3 weeks ago
More than 400 times as many people are killed on the roads than by terrorism around the world. The death toll from the Paris attacks is about half the number of people that will die on the roads of […]
beneboy commented on the post, Red Bull ‘to pay more’ for Renault engines in 2016 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Kimi, Jenson & Felipe could all end up retiring after next season, if Nico gets destroyed again Mercedes could start looking for someone new. That would open up an unusually large number of seats at some of the […]
beneboy commented on the post, Red Bull to use ‘Illien-developed Renault’ in 2016 6 months ago
The last line of the Illien article made me giggle, it would be funny hearing Horner explain why they shouldn’t have to provide engines to other teams, should the Illien engine happen, and turn out to be […]
