I think Chase for the Cup makes sense, unless you think there shouldn’t be a knockout stage in the World Cup but there should be a full championship instead….
Not an analogy that makes sense. The World Cup is a cup tournament- having knockouts is how such a tournament fundamentally works. NASCAR is and always has been a championship, but the ‘knockout’ is very oddly introduced as an excuse to level the field after a lot of the season has already run and make it look like there is still intensity. And unlike in a true cup, those outside the chase still have to compete. That is the problem- sports with more than 2 competitors on the field/track/etc. at any one time don’t lend themselves particularly well to knockouts.18th June 2014, 1:25 at 1:25 am #263244
Any idea if it’ll be free? I’ve been a bit annoyed by how slow it has been for content to appear which was announced before the games release, but the amount of free stuff they’ve made available so far is pretty cool. Seeing the slightly different ’80s versions of Brands and Monza were a very nice touch. I’d love to see that happen to more tracks, although the ones I’d most like to see that happen to would be a pretty big job…
original Nurburgring start loop
an older version of Le Mans- pre Porsche curves
old Spa would be nice but completely infeasible due to the scale and how little would be retained from the current version
Monaco minus the swimming pool section and possibly the chicane, maybe without Armco to reflect the ’50s/’60s look, even if they just kept the modern buildings
Silverstone from before the Brooklands section and when most of the corners were faster17th June 2014, 15:20 at 3:20 pm #263211
Looks great. What sort of price will the android version be, and how taxing will it be on my slightly older hardware?17th June 2014, 0:21 at 12:21 am #263189
The bigger crime is not understanding which way to hold a camera. The only thing more nonsensical than holding a video camera portrait is failing to even do that without a 30 degree tilt.16th June 2014, 13:09 at 1:09 pm #263162
I don’t think reading between the lines really suggests that at all.14th June 2014, 14:10 at 2:10 pm #263092
Keith had the UK start time down as 3pm, which was an error that might explain the current lack of a live session.9th June 2014, 19:45 at 7:45 pm #262933
Magnussen next year. I don’t see Williams or Force India actually winning this year, as it relies on something as bizarre as yesterday happening to both Mercedes again and also Red Bull either slipping up or simply struggling for pace (might happen on occasion, but I think they generally have the beating of the rest).6th June 2014, 0:08 at 12:08 am #26239729th May 2014, 7:42 at 7:42 am #261975
I don’t think that completely changing the fundamental design of the newly introduced engines is a possible solution, even if it might work theoretically.27th May 2014, 8:42 at 8:42 am #261820
Rosberg maybe lost out having failed to win a race which he really should have done. Even Aus was hollow in that his team mates retirement (having outperformed him in qualifying) meant there was no yardstick.15th May 2014, 15:14 at 3:14 pm #260492
Driver is part of the team, if team tries to save weight with car why shouldn’t driver contribute to overall package.
Because that means that tall drivers are for some reason discriminated against in F1 more than any other racing series, whereas being short for some reason is rewarded. That happening partly depends on the arbitrary weight limit, so saying being small is inherent to F1 is fictitious, as well as ignorant of the history of the F1. F1 is indeed a sport, so all the drivers should be expected to be fit, which they will be anyway so as to perform best in races. Nobody’s asking for drivers to be allowed to be fat, or saying that they don’t need to be athletic. You’ve completely failed to understand the argument unfortunately.15th May 2014, 0:40 at 12:40 am #260452
You need to check and understand how TV ratings are calculated in your country. I can’t be bothered to go into it again, but in the UK unless you have a recording device (which you would know about), 4,999 out of every 5,000 households are unmonitored- switching off your TV would probably affect the ratings less than some kind of rain dance.14th May 2014, 14:58 at 2:58 pm #260367

What I was wondering was if it’s definitely the case that Hamilton had less fuel than Rosberg at the start. It obviously makes the most sense to explain the difference, but I’d be curious to see some official confirmation.12th May 2014, 18:49 at 6:49 pm #260119
How would he have known that or was he simply assuming that both Merc drivers started with the same amount of fuel?
Probably an assumption. BBC pointed it out to, saying that it could be useful for holding off Rosberg. However, they later said that maybe it was because one side of the garage didn’t know how many laps were left- on one lap apparently Lewis’s pit board said there were 17 laps to go, and Rosberg’s said 16.
