Following on from my initial post…
The model they used, especially the wing designs, were seriously out of date. The front wing for example was very simple, not the complex multi-element we […]
You’re completely spot on mate. The findings from the OWG were fundamentally flawed, but then we all know how successful the outputs of various committee’s in F1 have been recently.
@jackisthestig No country in the world survives without taxation – it’s basically how public services are paid for etc. What varies is the level of taxation and the types of relief the local tax body offers i.e. […]

You might be with Brundle (call it ‘old school’), @jackisthestig.
But half the stupidity in Brundle’s comment is that he claims that a coherent-4-limber should at least ‘want to’ drive.
That’s exactly what […]
As always I love to read the various good captions.
At first I did not understand the entry by @jackisthestig: “Romain, what first attracted you to drive for the billionaire Carl Haas?”
I did not find it par […]
@jackisthestig Lee McKenzie has hinted she won’t be leaving the BBC to follow the F1 license.
She’s doing so much with the stadium/horse events now my guess is she’s angling for something big, possibly Rio next year?
@jackisthestig Andretti was unlucky in that, the year he attempted Le Mans, he was the first prototype on the road, but McLaren won overall with the McLaren F1 GT car and he was thus second overall. That’s a neat […]
@jackisthestig It was not the first time and also not the last time. After many guarantees Vettel lost another win in Silverstone the year after. Also have you ever thought about the fact that Mercedes or Ferrari […]
@jackisthestig While it may seem like only a small accident, 150kph is still well over 90mph. It seems slow by F1 standards, but there are still pretty big forces at work. Let’s face it, most people who slam into […]

I guess nico can buy a bunch of Mercs with his pocket change. Try again @jackisthestig

“Maybe you would have a catalogue of penalties that any judge can choose from. That’s like the real world out there. Sometimes people try to make Formula One look so complicated, but actually the situations are very similar to the real world.”
“We have seen already that our rivals are relentless in their efforts to close the gap. As a team, it is up to us to rise to that challenge: to take that relentless mentality to an even greater extent than those around us.”
“The judge back in 1971 described him as ‘altogether extraordinary’, which is one of the nicer things said about him in Panorama’s Bernie Ecclestone: Lies, Bribes and Formula One (BBC1, Monday).”
Can't wait to watch some wheel to wheel racing at Thruxton tomorrow supporting @marc_hynes in the BTCC!
Spent 10 years watching my bro in it

But I laughed most at this cheeky contribution from Jack (@Jackisthestig):
“Have you got a better pen? I struggle without the best equipment.”

Happy birthday to Jack Sargeant, Martin Stanley, Three4Three, Skodarap and Vickyy!
On this day in F1
On this day 20 years ago a special FIA meeting was held to review the disastrous events of the San Marino Grand Prix in which Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger were killed and Rubens Barrichello had been injured along with several spectators and pit crew members.
Meanwhile the sport continued to come under fierce pressure from worldwide media to respond to the two fatalities. In Italy the possibility of a homicide investigation into Senna’s death was raised.
Italian defence minister Fabio Fabbri told a crowd in Venice: “I hope the murder of Imola is punished. The Formula One world is worse than the gladiator’s circus.”

@jackisthestig they don’t push the aero to the limits in Indycars tho… F1 has the freedom within the rules, Indycars are just given the kit and they have to work with the setups only.
@jackisthestig – McLaren’s reasoning for the major changes was pretty sound. They felt they had developed the MP4-27 to its limit, and that if they continued with it, they would exhaust any remaining development […]
@jackisthestig there was plenty of Euro tabloids Spain and Italy more so that talked about the Alonso split from his famous singer wife. So you probably just didn’t read or see the articles, and a couple were put […]
