    Could Manor not conceivably run the team? Or are they completely out of the picture after the Marussia buyout (I cant remember). I could imagine someone with a background of well run teams in lower formulae like Manor with a hands on role at this level would, at the minimum, run the team at the same level as currently and would have more success in raising the team up the grid than just another idiot with deep pockets (although deep pockets will help, but thats what decent sponsorship is for, which would be easier to come by for a genuine race team!)

    But if they were credited with the lap, then the scenario in that COTD is moot as they would still be on the same lap after the credit and would be taking the restart lying astern from each other. Essentially, making it so everyone is on the same lap and in the correct placement order when taking the restart.

    This really does look very interesting and will definitely keep an eye out for this one come May time. Have subscribed to the thread to make sure I remember ;)

    I like the idea, although as I alluded to on Twitter, it means that Will Power has no chance at that title shot now ;)

    Also for those saying that Indy needs more points. Indyt gets more anyway as you get Quali points there, which you don’t at the other two 500 milers which is somewhere around 1/3 to 1/10 extra (depending on your quali position) on top of your race points

    I am hugely hyped for this championship. Really hope I win the lottery soon though. £2.5M would be peanuts for me to be able to set up a team for this!

    Ah, I found a solution. If you use the dropdown menu on pictures to access F1 Cars and navigate through that, it does allow you to view all the old images. Just when you actually physically click on pictures at the top and go through to F1 car pictures on the resulting screen that it does not work.

    Yes I can see both links there, just I was wanting some from older cars so figured the second link was the way to go. First link on that page (the one you posted) works fine though. Just the “F1 Cars Pictures” one

    All packed and ready to fly in the morning! Still no idea on parking for the weekend mind you. Anyone point me in the right direction? Staying just past Como and will be driving in every day so if someone could please let me know it would be appreciated (maybe by buying a beer at the circuit even ;))

    Is there any way that anyone knows to pay for parking at the track for the full weekend in advance? Spotted it is around €20 on a post earlier on (assume that was for one day) and was wondering if they have weekend parking passes or anything as will be going Thursday-Sunday so thought might be able to save a bit of money that way. Either that or its drive to Como then a train from there (which works out about €25 a day I think – although that is without parking there) so trying to figure out whats best. Cheers

    Things like brakes are generally down to driver preference. Certain brake manufacturers will make their brakes give more retardation in the initial part of the braking phase while others will be more gradual so it is not massively uncommon to run different brake manufacturers nowadays.

    We are staying just outside of Argengo. How is parking near/at the track? Would it be easier to drive to a train station and go to Monza that way? If so, what train stations would get me there easily? Dont want to have to walk too far as will have my toddler son with us as well.
    Another thing, the schedule on monzanet says the track is closed between 1 and 3. Is that no entry at all? Was hoping to go sneak into the banking in the early afternoon on the Thursday before the signing session as it is more likely that we will manage to get through.

    Was there an episode last week during the German GP? Missed the buildup

    Wouldnt surprise me if the people were photoshopped on the first picture too. They are all looking in different directions!

    Don’t recognize those series you mentioned there @ratboy ;)
    But yeah, get yourselves over for some fun and laughs!
    If you don’t have the game, buy it!
    If you don’t have an Xbox, buy it!
    I did both and over a year on don’t regret it one bit :)
