To continue with COTD’s argument, F1 cars don’t look exciting on the straights at all. Look at the footage from Mexico. They were breaking speed records but it looked as dull as ever. They show the worst side of […]

DaveF1 commented on the post, Rosberg “a champion and nothing else” – Ecclestone 10 hours, 50 minutes ago
Kgn11 regardless what you think of Rosberg, being able to speak 5 languages certainly is a sign of intelligence which is defined as ‘the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.’
I’m not a Rosberg fan […]

On the one hand, one might be inclined to agree with Ecclestone because F1 history books will always pay more attention to some world champions than others. The number of world championship titles is not always […]

The only positive to adding the chicane is that it diminishes the effectiveness of the inevitable DRS zone they’re putting there!
I’d be more than happy (relatively speaking) for them to use 2 DRS zones (with 2 […]

@psynrg Both Le Mans Bugatti (which hosted F1 in 1967 and was not popular) and the La Sarthe circuit for the 24 hour race are FIA grade two, whereas F1 requires grade one.

Have updated the article above as Paul Ricard have now confirmed the exact track layout which will be used. Note it is exactly the same as the one in the Eurocup video.
He also lost a great opportunity to score points at Hungary, also with technical problems, but he was also overshadowed by Alonso there.
In hindsight, he should’ve left in 2014… we all wanted him to stay and […]

I’m not sure that 1.8 km straight would’ve added anything to the track. It’s the rest of it that’s important. Kinda like Shangai… that enormous straight isn’t the best part of the circuit, nor the most […]
GeeMac commented on the post, F1 to use chicane in Mistral Straight at Paul Ricard 15 hours, 53 minutes ago
Well that is disappointing and expected.
I don’t find the thought of 22 cars driving in a straight line for 1.8kms particularly appealing, but it would have been unique and would have forced the teams to come […]
Formula One will not use the full 1.8-kilometre Mistral Straight at Paul Ricard when the track hosts the French Grand Prix in 2018.
The straight, one of the longest in Europe, will be interrupted by a chicane […]
On the face of it Jenson Button has chosen the right time to hang up his helmet. Only a few times during the 2016 campaign did he produce the kind of performances expected of a world champion.

The 21-race 2016 Formula One season is history – and now it’s time to tackle F1 Fanatic’s annual 20-question quiz on the championship.
How much of the season that’s just finished can you remember? Take the […]

yup, another solid reason why not to let Bottas go @optimaximal (much the same reasoning is why Perez is not much mentioned, because FI would lose too many sponsors by such a move to even be able to consider it.). […]

So far Mercedes is doing a pretty solid job of crating PR value and attention from this @uneedafinn2win! Their twitter banter with drivers including Max Verstappen on the first day was relly fun too.
BasCB commented on the post, Rosberg “a champion and nothing else” – Ecclestone 22 hours, 4 minutes ago
I saw Joe Saward write yesterday that apparently Williams is not in a position to let Bottas go, because other contracts require an experienced driver like him being there @jaymenon10. A commenter asked whether it […]
