    @bradley13 You are right, not quite what I meant but I think you are worthy of a correct answer. I tried to make it harder cause I assumed it would be too easy.
    As you know Fangio won 5 championships, and as in this game you have to connect 4 f1 words, the question was related to Fangio’s long standing record, of having won with 4 different manufacturers, you got the Fangio connection and you mentioned championships, so, I guess that’s enough. Over to you.

    So scary. Regardless of red flags, what was that car doing? He wanted to have a go at the track. He comes out, doesn’t look, apparently has the turning circle of a train.

    That’s an ambulance, it’s red cause it’s fire-fighter’s, possibly volunteers as well. Unbelievable.

    So Farina won the f1 world championship, Sam Hanks won the Indy 500, Piero Taruffi won the mille miglia, so only the winner 24 hours of LeMans left, is it Mike Hawthorne?

    I rather have a commentator that’s watching the same race as I am. In my view the role of the commentator is to fills the gaps in my knowledge as a viewer and also provides information that I’m not willing to take my eyes of the screen for, such as timings, gaps, strategies, etc.

    On the 2nd part, I have felt a commentator was pretending the race is more spectacular or competitive than it really was, which is why I felt Crofty was hyping up, he pretty much said it himself, live, Crofty said he knew it was a long shot but he had to be excited with the prospect of Hamilton coming back, in the end I think he was not wrong to do so but I still think commentators shouldn’t hype up. I feel Crofty is pressured to deliver that excitement, that’s what I meant with the “it’s Crofty’s job to hype up” comment. Definitely not the excitement Murray Walker had for F1. Crofty, he’s always trying to be entertaining trying to push sky, he’s bias because he’s on sky’s side.
    Edwards excitement I feel is more genuine, it’s not that Edwards hypes up when there’s nothing to be excited about but rather Edwards truly believing on a different outcome. Edwards gets excited about Lewis and the Brits which is only natural, sometimes though I feel like Edwards is a bit distracted, he makes more mistakes and old fashioned assumptions, for instances he picks up on anything to say that Max might be a bit immature.
    I’d rather have the Brundle and Coulthard of old, they were together for just a season but they had the perfect stance.

    The disconcerting truth is that there are many respected news outlets that do fabricated, fickle articles and click bait articles that exercise their opinion above factual information, often focusing in opinion rather than actual verified trusted content. F1 is so secretive that sensational stories and rumours are hard to tell apart, it’s entertaining nonetheless. Journalists do like to play hero, superstar or genius, although I think often these fake or copy paste news are the result of media companies relying on computer generated articles rather than actual living journalists. They’ve got the voice and so influence the world with it. I wouldn’t censor daily mail I just suggest not following the media unthinkingly.

    Verstappen on Ericsson. Not the cleanest move but it was all on the brakes, as the STR couldn’t even follow the Sauber on the long straight.

    Nonquestion, In my view you are comparing F1 today with it’s worse decade, especially the latter half. I understand that we are comparing Turbo with Turbo but we’re also comparing monopoly with monopoly.

    Massa is the key to Brazilian viewership. In other words the Hulk reversal can’t be applied. To his defence, the stewards are known to have a more lenient stance regarding starts.

    I agree with PorscheF1, although I should highlight that all of your hypothesis live under the same roof, even Porsche. Iestyn Red Bull has a long term sponsorship of the audi DTM of some drivers but the same happened last year with one BMW, Da Costa’s, RBR have ruled out making their own engines, anything can change though, Ilmor is tagging along with Renault so who knows what twists lay ahead, I wouldn’t bet on KTM, there a tech chasm ahead them.

    @craig-o As far as I know Honda are allowed to supply other teams in 2016.

    Renault has implied a possible drop out but they’ve also been eyeing either STR or SFI. Honda may not be in tip top shape right now but they’ve set themselves for the long haul besides there’s history backing up my thesis. Honda re-entered F1 in the 80’s with Spirit, proving their worth and moving up the grid to Williams to whom they were loyal, this is until Dennis poached Honda to McLaren.

    I’m sure that if Honda is not satisfied with McLaren they’ll join RBR, in the end the exclusivity clause is not indefinite @davids Honda pointed out in late 2014 and has since never mentioned this further. It’s not even like Honda’s base is in Milton Keynes, if anything Honda used McLaren to re-enter F1 with the long term interest of joining RBR, thankfully everything is falling apart with Renault but maybe the McLaren is not half bad and maybe the RBR is not what it was in the past, anyhow plenty of options open at the moment for Honda.

    Inconspicuous or a blatant move? Or nothing at all.
