Mercedes W196 Streamliner – Stunning and hugely successful, the only F1 streamliner which is really remembered, and the most cohesive.
Maserati 250F ’57 – The final version was easily prettiest
Lotus 72E – Classic wedge, amazingly long career
McLaren MP4/4/5 – Very difficult to choose between them. The 4 looks that little bit squatter and has the better record, but I felt Senna actually was better in the 5, which also has the great triangular endplates, a similarly low stance despite the airbox (which has the classic forwards angling), and prettier sidepods
Possibly the Merc if I had to pick. Some seem to have flatter, lower bonnets which looks better, although I don’t think that feature belongs to a specific year.
Special mention to the McLaren MP4-20 which suffered in appearance from the high 2005 front wing but otherwise captivated me that year, and Renault R24/5 vibrant livery and beautiful sidepods. Also, Alfa 158/9, Vanwall VW5, Ferrari Dino 246, Arrows A2, Jordan 191, Brawn BGP 001 in spite of the silly wings and fat nose.2nd September 2014, 2:06 at 2:06 am #273064

Mercedes W196 (1954) – It may be old, it may have the aerodynamics of a box
Why not pick the streamliner version then? Probably the best looking F1 car.28th August 2014, 1:26 at 1:26 am #272496
I was amazed after his Ferrari efforts that a team as prestigious (if fallen) as Williams would want him. To be fair though, his pace hasn’t been bad this year. And I have no idea if his feedback is good enough to make him desirable.
I do think that Canada was a 50/50 racing incident- Massa should have run wider, realising that turning right wasn’t exactly sensible as they entered a braking zone even if the track continued turning right. Perez should have anticipated Massa on his left and so realised that to be safe it would be better to maintain a constant distance between himself and the edge of the track by turning right a bit more rather than braking straight towards the apex.27th August 2014, 16:43 at 4:43 pm #272443
Only ever saw the 2008 Belgian Grand Prix- which was an interesting one…26th August 2014, 16:19 at 4:19 pm #272361
@formel-sk1 If you clarify I will complete the survey, but I didn’t finish it before as I didn’t want to just put a random answer.24th August 2014, 16:43 at 4:43 pm #271803
What do you mean by “Do you regard the sponsoring of PUMA in the Formular 1 as authentic?”? Also, that should be ‘Formula’. I don’t know how any sponsorship can be either authentic or not.15th August 2014, 13:26 at 1:26 pm #270520
Artists gain little from the 65% of concertgoers who record the entire thing on their smartphone, dump it on youtube and be done with it.
Nobody gains from that though. The quality is always so poor that nobody watches much of it, and even if they do how does it take away anything the artists?14th July 2014, 11:36 at 11:36 am #266495
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).
