    Wouldn’t be surprised if it took off, considering the wind at Silverstone.

    Been a brilliant week for me, I feel like I can push at Road America instead of just struggling to hold onto the reins. Anyway, one third place and three second places out of four races – unfortunately that means I’m solidly into top splits though :(.

    I still think Hamilton will beat Button pretty badly this year. Hamilton’s race went a bit awry in the second half of the race due to strategy, I wouldn’t read too much into his performance on the hards with so little evidence.

    Re: Belgium 2008 (never gets old does it?) – I feel a lot worse for Hamilton in this case than I do for either Alonso 2010 or Button 2011. For a start he actually followed the letter of the rules, he let Raikkonen back through (which the other two didn’t, although admittedly the rules had changed) and I think he was forced off the track as surely as either of the others.

    Add that he thouroughly deserved the win and it’s not difficult to see why the conspiracy theorists were out in force.

    I rate Buemi higher than Alguersuari, but there isn’t a lot in it. It’s actually pretty difficult to guage how good they are against the rest of the field, the way the car yoyos in pace all the time.

    Noticed there’s been no posts this week, too busy crashing? :D

    I forgot about that, you’re right. It just feels as if they didn’t bother configuring the steering at all, it’s quite pathetic when you think how much time and money went into the rest of the game, then they just leave it unplayable.

    I agree with polishboy, my brother bought it so I decided to check it out. My main problem to begin with was laggy controls (why are games always released unfinished?), but once we sorted that the handling seemed pretty realistic, although the cars did seem to have a huge amount of grip. I was using a stock Elise and Megane cup.

    If the overtaker has slowed sufficiently to block the apex (and hasn’t gone steaming wide), then that’s a textbook overtake. Unless you’re doing a Ferrari, making the opponent lose 1sec is a good thing.

    Think I went for 23.450, I was hoping he’d keep it up on that final lap :(

    The important point is that the tech has to translate to road cars, if it does (and I have no idea if it does or not) then it’s not just a publicity stunt. This is one reason why the KERS rules, especially this years, are rediculous. They’re not learning anything from putting the same limited system back in the cars, I understand that the recession put a damper on things but it’s better to have nothing at all than have a system that isn’t being significantly developed.

    P.S. This thread is super depressing

    Ouch. To be fair when you’re following someone they can sometimes obscure accidents ahead (and no yellow flags for skip).

    Haven’t done any laps at The Glen yet, hopefully it wont take too long to learn! I decided to cut my losses at Silverstone, had one race and finished second but I could feel an accident coming on :/.

    I’m the same as you Dan, no interest in riding bikes myself but I really quite enjoy MotoGP. Handily it’s usually on when F1 is on an off-weekend so I get to watch it instead while I have sunday lunch :D.

    I think the riders’ skill is a lot more apparent than in F1, I cant help but be amazed when Stoner gets his back wheel out.

    Welcome Rick! I’ve never thought of a reverse points system before, it would probably make things a bit fairer at the rear end of the grid. Of course you could do the same by giving all positions a point, but I like the thought of the leaders being on low numbers.

    I’ll second A Short History of Nearly Everything, great book for a general history of science.

    I read The Trouble With Physics by Lee Smolin recently, it was pretty heavy duty stuff but offers some interesting insights into the world of science (a lot of it is complaining about egos).
