    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.

    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?
