    I really dislike having the start and finish line several corners apart.

    I think that it’s being way too harsh on Kvyat. By no means is he the finished product yet, but we must remember that he is just 21. We must give him time and not write him off, especially as this is just his second season in Formula One, and his first in a top car. Whilst filling Sebastian Vettel’s shoes is somewhat impossible for a driver so young and inexperienced, I think that Kvyat isn’t doing too bad a job at the moment. We must also remember that both the engine and chassis are sub-par by Red Bull’s standards too this season.

    Not a nice impact at all, but the majority of that seems to be down to a suspension failure as oppose to being aero-kit related. Provided these cars stay on the ground and drivers keep their hands away from the steering wheel, the DW12 has been pretty much okay in terms of safety so far. This one reminds me a bit of Hawksworth’s accident at Pocono last year:

    But Hinch hit the wall at a much worse angle, almost at a similar angle to Timo Glock at Suzuka in 2009. According to motorsport.com, he has a thigh injury which requires surgery. Indy is no stranger to big crashes, as is IndyCar as a whole, but I do hope that this is the final one we see this weekend.

    Eighth, ahead of Force India. Red Bull could well end up sixth or seventh.

    Yeah Twitter is superb news-wise if you’re following the right people. As of late, even the official F1 site hasn’t been too bad.

    I was like “ooohhhh pretty” for about five seconds at Bahrain. Then I couldn’t care less.

    Emerson Fittipaldi restarted his racing career last year in the WEC.

    Looks like another ’70s star is going to do the same…

    I’m also sure that we’ve all seen this one regarding Lewis Hamilton too.

    Meanwhile: K-Mag has been working out…

    I am pretty sure that the McLaren deal with Honda is an exclusive one, meaning that Honda cannot supply any other team. Red Bull’s only hope is to drag another engine manufacturer into the equation (I’ve seen Audi and Porsche rumours being thrown about).

    There was overtaking!? I kid.

    Probably Ericsson on Perez. Nice little lunge that.

    That’s almost like asking “who is eligible for F1 and has the most money?”

    It will probably be Chilton.

    Not sure if Wilson and Emerson Fittipaldi ever drove in the same races?

    They did indeed, in 1972, 3 and 5.

    Other sets of brothers who competed in the same race include Ian and Jody Scheckter and Manfred and Joachim Winkelhock (although the last of these failed to qualify for any races).

    @junior-pilot

    The good thing about looking at it from a fan’s perspective is that we don’t look at it as a business.

    Perhaps I am no longer a fan then.

    And I don’t know what the big deal is about running a previous year’s car – it used to happen for years (the McLaren MP4/4 was used for several years).

    Nonsense. The MP4/4 was used for 1988. The MP4/5 was used for 1989. Also, that was when regulations changed little between seasons. For 2015 there are a number of changes being made to the regulations regarding the front of the car. I don’t see why one team should be exempt from the regulations and are allowed to run an illegal car for a whole season when everybody else must stick to the rulebook.

    The bid, which I know is something we know nothing about, is also of no business of Force India to decide.

    Force India are part of the so-called ‘Strategy Group’, so yes it is their business.

    Any respect or liking for Force India has gone in my view; I’d rather have Manor on the grid rather than Force India, after the way FI has acted.

    For rejecting the opportunity to get ~£4m stuck straight into your bank account? That reason alone would be valid enough for Force India to reject the Manor bid. From a business perspective (and remember, Formula 1 is a business) they would have been completely stupid not to. This is before we get into the technicalities of them running what would essentially be an illegal car and whether the bid was any good or not.
