You may consider better headphones than the Apple ones. A pair of sealing-type earbuds maybe a better solution, since they do a much better job insulating against noise. That way you can have one in, and one out, and still be able to hear both.3rd March 2015, 17:17 at 5:17 pm #29347210th February 2015, 20:26 at 8:26 pm #291980
You’re giving far too much credit to the show aspect of Formula One. There are many fans who are equally, if not more, interested the technical design and mechanical side of the sport.14th November 2014, 8:52 at 8:52 am #285404
@bradey13 – That’s my feelings as well on the issue. It seems more scam than anything else. The administrators are trying to use F1 Fans to pay their way onto the Abu Dhabi grid, so they can claim 10th place and the $30-40 Million (IIRC) that comes with it, without having to put any money at all into it. There’s absolutely no way they’re going to be around in 2015.2nd November 2014, 17:31 at 5:31 pm #282002
Extreme costs for one, and the huge technical requirements. Can you imagine how long it would take for a team to optimize flap size, location on car for every track and then figure out how much each one extends for every corner?1st November 2014, 2:15 at 2:15 am #281811
I’ll just say that I watched 16-17 races last year. This year, I’ve only watched 1.5-ish. Its not the racing turning me off either. Its the off the track shenanigans that makes me not want to support it.30th October 2014, 1:17 at 1:17 am #28094929th October 2014, 4:05 at 4:05 am #280768
I’ll post my pick sometime today. If anyone has any last entries, please post them.27th October 2014, 7:01 at 7:01 am #280414
Seems like Grosjean is almost guaranteed to be at Lotus, and Maldonado was confirmed back in July. I read the articles about Checo and Lotus. It seems like Checo has offered Lotus his services, and his backers’ sponsorships as a backup plan to FI, but I don’t think Lotus ever approached him about it.27th October 2014, 5:16 at 5:16 am #280412
@harsha – Seems Grosjean is due to remain with Lotus, and it seems Button is due to be replaced with Alonso. Neither of those have been confirmed yet, but that’s the generally accepted idea of whats going to happen.27th October 2014, 0:17 at 12:17 am #280406
@mathers – I don’t know if there is an actual rule for multiple entries or not. In the interest of fairness, I simply ask that only one is nominated, this is how I’ve seen it done prior in this thread, so I continued that.
Also, implore simply means to ask or beg of, so it’s used correctly.26th October 2014, 18:31 at 6:31 pm #28038925th October 2014, 8:08 at 8:08 am #280270
I think this was inevitable that Madrid, Spain would be making an appearance within this thread. As everyone has probably heard, there are rumors of a Madrid street race in 2015. I am going to leave this pretty open ended and limit the actual rules.
1- Not further than approx. 15-17km from city center.
1A – MUST be a street circuit, 90% must be existing roads.
3- Can’t demolish buildings, but can use empty areas for additional track, or facilities
3A – Must utilize roads that are sufficiently wide for a race, or can be widened without destroying buildings/structures.
4- Bonus points for realistic pit placement. Put it in an area it could actually go without leveling 3 city blocks. (Not required though)
5- Have Fun25th October 2014, 2:42 at 2:42 am #280268
I’ll post up a new challenge in a couple hours when I get a moment.22nd October 2014, 9:53 at 9:53 am #279869
It comes out to 6km on the button, with a total distance of 5.992km before pits were added. There’s one area that would need attention. Specifically, the course crosses an empty, non-paved area that would have a train crossing on the NW corner of the track. If this were an issue, and a solution could not be figure out, the track could be slightly reconfigured, and the course could utilize a widened entrance ramp that comes directly onto Spring Mountain Rd. Overall though, maybe more 90’s than I’d have liked, but it utilizes the most popular and famous areas of the LV strip.
