    Hamilton was at peak form in 2008?

    The way that Sylt leapt on a fairly innocuous comment on this very site, flexing his muscles by mentioning legal action, makes it difficult to take him seriously.

    I dislike this trend of calling entirely new LMP1 cars by the same name as previous.

    This looks great, although I’m not so keen on the upright lights when viewed in profile. And I concur that this needs a non-awful livery.

    If I get a replacement in time following my own YLOD, I’ll join.

    The God-awful livery on the Porsche really ruins it for me. It’s all at once bland, ugly, and nonsense. A real shame, as I suspect I’d love it otherwise.

    Some of the FR3.5 cars looked fantastic.

    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.
