Now that’s a street circuit! If it’s as long and wide as said then it’s going to be pretty cool.
I don’t think running along the dual carriageway and then coming back is actually that unnecessary – with it, the circuit becomes roughly the same length as Sepang. Without it, it’d only be as long as Monaco and it’s deprived of a longer straight, which should make for some overtaking at the bottom of it and possibly a fightback through the hairpin and following left-hander.

I see from that wiki page that they’re already supporting the BTCC at Silverstone, so it would make sense to add them to the bill for the whole season, except that their calendar doesn’t align with the BTCC’s and I doubt they’d revise it that much, or may not be able to due to other series. Maybe from 2013?18th March 2012, 11:35 at 11:35 am #196112
I hereby take back my words about Croft, the transition to TV has suited him. Not really fussed about not having more hours of analysis than there was racing.
Surprised to see so many minor quibbles posted, guess I just don’t care about those things.17th March 2012, 16:32 at 4:32 pm #196249
Awful editing, like they couldn’t wait to get it over with.
Ben Edwards was pretty uninspiring and I’m not sure where he gets his reputation from. Him and DC together was like white noise.14th March 2012, 22:06 at 10:06 pm #195648
I hope Grosjean’s paid enough or he’ll only have the Starter Edition.
Lotus_GP.exe has crashed, circuit error E20.
Lotus will fall behind with this new deal, everyone knows the Apple model is more suited to F1, ridiculously expensive and after a year a new one comes out.10th March 2012, 17:57 at 5:57 pm #195386
No Eddie Jordan and wardrobe talk. No Jake Humphrey saying “explain to the viewers at home”. No DC’s thinly-veiled bias. Sky has Brundle, Lazenby seems inoffensive as host, there’s Ted doing the technical stuff, Natalie and Georgie are mostly on the sidelines if you don’t think they add much, season review programs and interviews with past legends on a loop. Whole host of interactive stuff promised versus not even watching practice because there’s tennis. Well worth the extra money I would have had to pay were it not for an accommodating friend.
Plus you can do this!29th February 2012, 0:26 at 12:26 am #194658
My cousin fired up Teletext only for me to find Villeneuve was the 1997 champion.
Someone also told me Button had won the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix but I probably wouldn’t have watched the highlights had I not known anyway.29th February 2012, 0:24 at 12:24 am #194621
They’d be shooting into the air and firing up the grills for all the flying pigs they caught.
But supposing it happens one day when it’s a more realistic proposition, I would imagine the atmosphere would be unimaginable ;-)22nd February 2012, 12:23 at 12:23 pm #19294022nd February 2012, 0:09 at 12:09 am #192845

McLaren, no contest. STR is best of the rest.4th February 2012, 9:54 at 9:54 am #19175328th January 2012, 12:19 at 12:19 pm #191297
Found the 1997 review!
