I don’t know all F1 cars, but this is probably my top 5 :
1- The Eagle T1G : A true old-school beauty, my personal favourite. http://www.roadandtrack.com/cm/roadandtrack/images/BZ/1967-gurney-eagle-grand-prix-car-001.jpg
2- The chassis of the Brabham BT52 looks also magnificent.…[Read more]
Glad Bruner won, hopefully he can win many more and teams get interested. For an Australian to run this series it’s sad there are just no Australians! :P We had James Harding until he was injured…
My top 5 best F1 cars:
1. Mclaren Mercedes MP4-23 (2008) – In my opinion, 2008 was the last time F1 cars looked advanced, futuristic and beautiful. I really love the chrome/red livery (one of my favourite liveries) and those little winglets especially on the nose cone make the MP4-23 a truly astonishing piece of art in my mind.
2. Renault R26…[Read more]
My top 5 would have to be:
5. Lotus 79 (1978-9) – beautifully engineered, beautifully designed, beautifully liveried and beautifully driven.
4. Jordan 199 (1999) – one of the great giant-killers. I still can’t believe how close Frentzen came to beating the McLarens and Ferraris to the championship that year. That gorgeous paint scheme helps as…[Read more]
The thing about the German tv ratings is that unlike other regions you cannot blame it on a change to the broadcasting as nothing has changed in Germany as far as availability goes, Its the same as its been since the 90s.
Every qualifying session & race is available live on RTL which is a Free to air broadcaster. Practice sessions are also…[Read more]
I’m fairly sure that driver to driver radio is actually banned, If not by regulation then by an agreement as I was told some years ago that while possible there not allowed to do it.
It used to be done in Nascar, Drivers could tune into the frequencies of other drivers (Not just teammates either) & would often discuss drafting & other tactics…[Read more]
Updated IJGP and EJGP Standings (note: I’ll do EJGP Team’s tomorrow, too tired right now!):

IJGPC Portuguese Race – Part One
Start – Einarsson bogs down slightly but so do Zrigovic, van Snelheid and Heininen, and Einarsson keeps the lead. Meanwhile Bruner jumps…[Read more]
Can you imagine if Prost and Senna had been able to talk to each other during the 1988/89 seasons?! How might that have gone! Or Mansell/Piquet (1986/7); Alonso/Hamilton (2007); or Reutemann/every teammate (each year!)
@Royal-Spark I really like the black Arrows too, although I didn’t like that Tom Walkinshaw kept changing the colour of the car each year (mostly white when he took over, then red with some blue, then white/blue, then black). And the Prost AP04 looked great – pity the expensive Ferrari engine in this car eventually sunk the team!
IJGPC Portuguese Race – Grid
Einarsson lines up on his first ever IJGP pole position. He’s joined on the front row by Zrigovic, who just pipped van Snelheid. Meanwhile…[Read more]
