    We were all young once? He’s been old enough to drive for 5 years and have a degree.

    8 months sounds like a lot for a prank, but crimes committed in cars seem to be heavily penalised, and although he wasn’t on a public road, he was nevertheless endangering others with a car, which is pretty serious.

    I hated Citta di Aria from GT4. Deep Forest, Trial Mountain and Midfield Raceway (I miss it) were classics.

    When did they uproot entire the Hungaroring and movie it into central Budapest?

    The best thing about it was alerting me to this great video…

    Reminds me of Spyker. And much though I love their road and GT cars, their foray into F1 was not great.

    As it was a Marlboro livery, unlikely. If they finally get the main sponsor they’ve been going on about, I imagine that company would want something with its own identity.

    Did you know that the Ukrainian Army shot down MH17 with a fighter jet?

    I did not, although that’s mainly on account of it being nonsense.

    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.

    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.

    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.
