    @hunocsi

    Which would obviously mean the last driver in Q1 would not qualify (as 26 cars are the maximum)

    Which then begs the question, what of 2015 and Haas?

    Think that is my main stumbling point for this being in any way serious. If they are making this change then surely the need for another team is unfounded. And no team will want to go racing in F1 in this economy if they are not guaranteed to race, as exposure time is what the sponsors want. The backmarkers struggle enough for sponsors as is.

    I really can’t see this happening. I think that yes, we may lose one team by the time Haas is here in 2015, but cannot see it being down to 8 and cannot see the return of the DNQ as standard in modern F1

    Congrats. Will be so satisfying for you to see it up on the App Store! Will be even more satisfying for me to see it on Google Play Store ;)

    Kinda wish I still had my iPhone now (although this would be the only reason!)

    Can’t wait for the android app. And nice to see Firecruiser winning (however unrealistic that may be :P) on one of the screenshots posted on the article on your twitter. Just FYI, Firecruiser Towers use the Note 2 for the most part, so hopefully that will be supported (as it does have rather a large screen!)

    Well I am nowhere near so wouldn’t be able to get there. If you are looking for more inspiration, some more Really Rubbish Racing teams could always be used to fill the gap. Perhaps my teamup with @ratonedge, Northern Monkey Racing: http://www.reallyrubbishracing.co.uk/index.php?title=Northern_Monkey_Racing
    Plenty of other great team names on there too that i am sure people wouldnt mind being used in a motorsport game ;) – http://www.reallyrubbishracing.co.uk/index.php?title=Category:Teams

    Got to have the mighty Firecruiser Racing Team in there: http://www.reallyrubbishracing.co.uk/index.php?title=Firecruiser_Racing_Team ;) (even have a few logos for it you could use)

    Forgot to respond to this actually as its a pain trying to log in to the site on my phone. Saw it last night (I have email subscriptions to this thread) and was blown away. Brilliant stuff so far!

    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 ;))
