    That so needs to happen.. 3rd car.. unless their plan is for Kobayashi to replace Wurz/Sarrazin once one of them retire? I can see them having a Japanese driver in each car so that if one car wins Le Mans, there’s also a winning Japanese driver (Nakajima or Kobayashi). Unless Super Formula is the current priority for Kamui?

    Classic Malaysian monsoon. Lets see who’s car is the best in the wet! Can Alonso do another 2012? :D

    22 regular rides, 24 with de Silvestro and Karam, 3 of 9 extra for Indy announced, something F1 can only dream of… now, how does Wilson give his seat to his brother ;)

    Not really sadly. Alonso/Ricciardo have to make 3 engines last 18 races – that’s 6 races per engine! Even more than 5 per engine for 4 engines and 20 races!

    The best are ready at any age – hence Verstappen at 17 (basically 2 years ahead of anyone else), and Schumacher getting pole position at age 43 in Monaco of all places.

    But yes, 13 cars was pitiful and made it seem like a non-championship race! It’s a warning shot for what might happen if the sport implodes or there’s some sort of boycott/return to the scenes of the FOM/FISA war. How secure is Bernie’s succession plan..

    @mathers Mine definitely needs a touch up, with the proper logos (Ford, FV2, Candy.. driver name formatting and a national flag), not sure if I should do this and resubmit or it’s easier for you to just do so when applying it to the actual cars? If it still looks too bare.. maybe I could add some Unilever brands, as Lever started on the Wirral.. while adding Pirelli is a no-brainer, which should match the colour scheme.

    @blockwall2 I have red spectrum colourblindness, although I’ve also coloured in rivers in purple before…
    @davidnotcoulthard Yours is definitely better than the 2007 version, don’t worry!
    @theawesomefish The 1998 Jordan was the other big inspiration :D

    Someone in live chat mentioned that the move was probably made for HD viewers, which makes sense seeing the move to 16:9 default layout (this must finally be a majority, like the move to widescreen in 2007?).

    Agreed that the rectangles are too static and big. Some of them are filling space on screen for no reason. But it makes sense that they are pivoting to mobile at last.

    If anything I think her strength marks her out as the female that could drive in F1. She can perform to her optimum (as shown in Indycar), while other females might lose some performance (e.g. Danica on road/street) when it becomes an issue in high G cars. Visser doesn’t seem to lose performance either, so we might have 2 :)

    Maybe one of the jilted Sauber drivers should go to Comtec and race in FR3.5..

    I guess Ocon just has to ‘pad’ his superlicence now – he has 40 points, but that’s only for the next three years. In no time, he could be in a Robin Frijns position and left without one. This year, he needs to replace the year that drops off, hopefully getting good results in GP3 before moving up to GP2.

    @billyos Lotus…. need cash. That’s the only possible reason for Jorda > Ocon. I wonder if Red Bull would take on Ocon, as if Stoneman/Ilott disappoint.. they are only left with Gasly.

    @joey-poey In the tune of Beyonce.. “If you see it then you gotta put a wing on it!” Haha. Montoya “Oh deer”.

    @jb001 OK, that makes sense. I thought Indycar was a spec series last year, car and engines.

    Wow, that looks mad. Prepare for pre-2011 F1 racing.. it’s like adding DRS to GP2, totally unnecessary given how great the action is. @vmaxmuffin

    I agree that it’s probably best for Indycar to develop the car in some way – just a shame it’s not the engines. Aero packages by engine companies? That sounds crazy to me. @keithcollantine

    @billyos Hehe, nice that you will have a driver to cheer for this year :).

    Morris has been coming up for a few years now, usually top 3 in every series he contested.

    Ocon, Kirchhoefer, Fuoco – the GP3 podium just got a lot more full of talent. They might all hold a 2016 super-licence..

    @dragoll Hehe. Shame Bernie never had a son.. @junior-pilot True, although I take it VDG doesn’t want another backmarker run, which is why he moved to Sauber reserve in the first place. Their line up was going to be Bianchi-VDG before losing Bianchi meant Nasr-Ericsson was then ushered in to pay for Ferrari engines (Bianchi would have given them a big discount). Maybe he or Sutil will aim for the Haas seat for 2016.
