    @fjbh10 Again, in the right area, but not the right answer…

    No one’s got it yet though a couple of you are in the right area…

    Finally we have a winner! They are indeed all IndyCar winners who never won in F1.

    @hugh11 would you like to set a new question or shall I?

    @mathers Nope that’s not it – Fabi did use a German engine in IndyCar but it was a Porsche. I don’t think BMW have ever entered.

    OK here’s a clue: It’s about a difference between their F1 and IndyCar careers.

    @mattypf1 I thought Macau might have been enough to keep him in but this is Red Bull after all so it’s not a huge shock if he’s been dropped.

    It’s been nearly five years and I’m starting to think @andae23 isn’t going to get this one. Anyone want to take a stab at it or shall I reveal the answer and we can move on with another question?

    @huhhii Well like I say I don’t mind them trying to do funny stuff if it’s actually funny. But very little of it is, to me anyway.

    I get that this is subjective. If you find that entertaining and therefore get some value out of it, that’s good. But I’m curious whether many people do, as to me it seems completely valueless.

    And a few early details are beginning to emerge about its specification:

    • 1,000bhp
    • Four-wheel-drive
    • Fewer then 300 units to be built

    I think Mercedes, Force India and Renault (especially in their Lotus days) are showcasing some brilliant tongue-in-cheek writing at Twitter

    I agree with HUHHII that the twitter is really good with Mercedes, Force India and Renault always having great banter on twitter (the Mercedes Max Verstappen DODT, Verstappen and Mercedes emails etc).

    See, this is really interesting to me because I find most of those kinds of tweets really unfunny. Occasionally one of them makes me laugh but more often than not it’s just the same kind of thing over and over again, and there’s so much of it it clogs up my feed and makes it harder to see the posts from other accounts which I find more interesting.

    I have to say, I’m really surprised to discover other people enjoy that kind of stuff! Interesting to hear what others make of it…

    However on the subject of Mercedes I must say I’m impressed how well they’ve tackled a lot of the stupid things people have said to them over the various Hamilton/Rosberg episodes over the past few seasons. It’s sad that so many people apparently believe there’s some kind of conspiracy going on but I admire how Mercedes have responded to it. I’m not sure I’d have the patience!

    @joshdejager I don’t know about the device question but in terms of value for money I’ve found it very disappointing. There’s little more information beyond what you can get from the television broadcasts, and much of the additional stuff FOM seem to post on their Twitter account for free anyway. The 3D track map looks good but is actually quite clumsy to use and I don’t think the data in it is that reliable – cars seem to skip and jump all around the track. If you look at it wondering ‘can this guy pit and come out in front of this guy?’ it’s often misleading.

    For me the crucial question is this: do I actually look at it much during F1 sessions? And the answer is no – hardly at all, in fact.
