    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.

    Only ever saw the 2008 Belgian Grand Prix- which was an interesting one…

    @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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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 faster

    Looks great. What sort of price will the android version be, and how taxing will it be on my slightly older hardware?

    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.

    I don’t think reading between the lines really suggests that at all.

    Keith had the UK start time down as 3pm, which was an error that might explain the current lack of a live session.

    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).

    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.

    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.
