There’s already several post-race review articles where this is being discussed:21st July 2011, 10:55 at 10:55 am #173578
My ONLY gripe is that I am NOT free to discuss everything about F1 with other forum users due to Keith’s insistence that Forum topics cannot replicate discussions that follow articles on the main site. This seems slightly at odds with the whole point of a forum and I know I am not alone with this. Yes I understand that multiple threads on the same topic are an administrative nightmare and make the site messy, but not even allowing ONE thread on a particular topic seems extreme.
My point of view is I don’t want people having to choose between whether to comment on the same subject on the main site or in the forum. The main site is the principle focus of attention.
However, for the benefit of new users on the forum I should make that distinction clearer and is something I’m considering how to address.21st July 2011, 10:05 at 10:05 am #172590
Ratboy – so it is! Nelson Piquet. Never occured to me before.21st July 2011, 7:51 at 7:51 am #174991
Looks like I have a copy waiting for me at the Post Office – can’t see myself getting around to a review before the August break though.20th July 2011, 23:23 at 11:23 pm #175019
I can’t remember what the last race I didn’t see live was. I know I didn’t see Australia 1994 live because I was quite young then and I wasn’t allowed to stay up late/get up early enough to watch it! So that’s probably it.19th July 2011, 16:05 at 4:05 pm #174756
Get the front and rear wings in some kind of sensible proportion (pre-2009 dimensions would be fine), reduce the height of the rear wing and the ridiculously oversized rear wing end plates.19th July 2011, 15:42 at 3:42 pm #174735
We had a discussion on this a while ago you may find useful:13th July 2011, 0:01 at 12:01 am #172447
Thanks everyone who supplied their views!
The articles are now written up and will be on the site from Friday.12th July 2011, 10:46 at 10:46 am #174006
I adore Ferrari’s rich history, their Italian charm (I love going to Italy) and their road cars.
I like the outspokenness of Montezemolo and the Horse Whisperer (probably one and the same) – even if I tend not to agree with their views, e.g., on three-car teams.
Stefano Domenicali seems a good guy on the whole and comes across well when being interviewed.
I could (and probably should) write reams about Alonso. Massa I’m pretty ambivalent towards.
I dislike Ferrari for their attitude to racing which was exemplified at Hockenheim last year and on other previous occasions: it’s fundamentally unsporting, and devalues the achievements of them and their drivers.
I suppose I could sum up my view of Ferrari as being I’m in love with their history but I don’t feel they do it justice.11th July 2011, 21:20 at 9:20 pm #173465
Thanks Daykind, appreciate it a lot.11th July 2011, 21:00 at 9:00 pm #146153
Thought it was time to update this, here’s the comparable data from June.
Major change is a rise in UK users which was already the largest single group. Site traffic has increased since I last looked at this, so I expect a lot of this is growth.
Traffic from Poland has dropped considerably, which under the circumstances is not a great surprise. German traffic is up, again for obvious reasons:
United Kingdom 39.8
United States 11.9

Spursfan39 – It’d be a good feature to add but it’s not top of the list at the moment. Got some other stuff coming hopefully fairly soon.
PJA & Fer no. 65 (and everyone else who’s said all these nice things) – thanks very much!11th July 2011, 18:56 at 6:56 pm #173847
We’re getting 3-4 times more pit stops per race than last year, so perhaps it’s to be expected.11th July 2011, 9:40 at 9:40 am #173456
I’ve made the rules clear several times. You know these threads are going to be closed so don’t waste your time commenting on them.
