    Thanks @keithcollantine , I wonder why I was not able to find the article even though I thoroughly searched for the two indicated words…

    There are many interesting views in that article and also here… But I must say I agree with @ratboy . Possible problems with that idea though:

    1. Monaco – very hard if not impossible to overtake. This could be improved if effectiveness of KERS and DRS was improved? (remove one artificial rule and make the other two stronger? ;) )…

    2. The part where “B” teams (as mentioned above by @gabal ) could potentially be used to block certain drivers and not others. The counter argument is that if teams really wanted to do this, they would have done it by now even with the current Blue Flag rules.

    I think the following comment was very interesting by @sojcarter :

    “Why not settle for a compromise that says that the backmarkers need not go off the racing line when a leader comes up behind them, but should they go for a passing move, they should go by unimpeded.”

    @-username is a great feature but it is not being utilized properly and it can be improved a lot.

    My suggestion is please implement the following:

    Upon selecting a reply button of ones post, make the @username appear automatically in the window. That is, the @username would be written automatically and would be the name of user under which the reply button of the post was selected. This should be default. If the user then wishes to change or delete that, it is easy to do.

    But, you’ve said that people use it without difficulty. However, i don’t think that is true. I find it extremely time consuming and indeed difficult to click on everyone’s name so that I can then find exactly what their @username is, so that I can “then” copy and past the frigging thing and then finally continue with the message. This is difficult because every page i click on takes about 20+secs to load up. Anyway, I’ve already made the suggestion above once before.

    I agree with Grits, I think Raikkonen doesn’t know what he is doing. His motivation for a comeback may not really be driven by lust for racing in F1.

    I never fully understood why Raikkonen left F1 in the first place. But I understand that he was discouraged to continue because he didn’t really like the idea of leaving Ferrari (hence why he did not like the idea of moving into a slower team). Ferrari were desperate to offer seat to Alonso and best way for them to do that was the keep Massa.

    If he does come back im sure he will do an ok job, but i doubt he will have the motivation or the patience to work on car development, testing, traveling etc etc..

    It is hard to compare to Schumacher situation. Schumacher went up against Rosberg who is exceptionally quick, and there were lot of changes introduced to the cars since his retirement. But im certain Schumacher will be improving and he will not be leaving until he achieves some level of success …

    lol

    @prisoner-monkeys
    There are many Egotistical, or narcissistic people out there, who have an inflated ego and the belief that they are more important than any other person. It’s an official psychological disorder – narcissistic personality disorder. Observed in all races i must say, but quite frequently seen in coloured, african american and other mixed race people it seems.. just personal observation. Maybe it is related to their childhood and/or lack of acceptance during, and where they lived?, …who knows. Eitherway what these types of people think/say really, couldn’t care less…

    Regards to the topic of this thread, …it is very possible what happened. I’ve always thought that Nicola Scherzinger was not for Lewis and it was just a matter of time before she goes back to what she used to do before. And what was that? Look it up. She is no different to Kardashian, too much, fame, beauty and opportunety…; I wouldn’t be surprised if she was hooking up with someone else behind the scenes

    @magnificent-geoffrey

    I am also gutted for Lewis. It is likely that “he” had a deep personal connection…(in fact quite obvious given his age and lack of experience) but, hey, maybe this is a good thing. Less fame will do him some good.

    @keithcollantine

    Ah ok, thanks for clarifying that. Is there a way then to make the “Reply” button associated under ones post, be linked to the username of that post. In other words, make the @username appear (or be written in) automatically following ones selection of the reply button. I think this would be better, because if people do not wish to reply to that user they can simply delete the @ and continue… its just a suggestion because it makes tracking of all replies possible and easier..

    “I’m also confused about the lack of a linkback to the comment from the “activities/mentions” page. “

    My one doesn’t even work. In other words, the mentions under “Activity” does not report (or link back) any replies for me (apart from when @ command is used it seems). Even though under the Notification settings “A member replies to an update or comment you’ve posted”, has been set to YES. I’d like to be able to know when a response or a reply is posted; why is this so difficult to implement?

    Btw, the feature “Mentions” should be renamed “Notifications”. Having many different words for a simple thing is not necessary..

    @dam00r

    i don’t think so. it is simply because Button respects other drivers. And Hamilton better than Vettel? I am afraid Hamilton has a long way to go to show that. Because now, it’s the other way around ….

    @scribe

    “…you get fairly excited whenever a female F1 fan is found

    …you discuss tyre compounds with your sister over the dinner table”

    is your sister that “female F1 fan”? :)

    “…you’ve topped the most frequent poster table on F1Fanatic, everynow and then you formulate a post in the hope Keith might make this one that next COTD, or plan to regain the top spot by massivley over posting. “

    that’s sad.. lol.
