    Hi,

    I’m trying to organise a trip to the 2016 Spanish GP as part of a family holiday but need some advice regarding coach transfers to the circuit.

    We are planning on booking a hotel in one of the resorts like Lloret de mar, calella or santa susanna but the only coach transfers I can find is using the Sagales service. Unfortunately these…[Read more]

    @npf1 While dramatic, surely the Nurburgring crash wasn’t as bad as Silverstone last year, or Monza 2007?

  • The Hungarian Grand Prix went from one of the best trophies to one of the worst.

    Fernando Alonso – Brazil 2003. Crashed into debris left there by Mark Webber’s crash. Fernando’s crash ended the race, which had him miss the podium.
    Kimi Raikkonen – Europe 2005. Flat spotted his tyre, kept going and had his suspension break on the final lap. Cost him a lot of points which enabled Alonso to ease to his maiden championship more so…[Read more]

  • Nick replied to the topic Your favourite podium in the forum Group logo of F1Formula One 53 minutes ago

    One of my first favorite podiums happened at the 1998 Italian GP; M Schumacher, Irvine, R Schumacher. Nothing like seeing your favorite driver win with his teammate and little brother next to him. Europe 1999 is another great one, with Herbert-Trulli-Barrichello. The 2003 Brazilian GP is a little odd in that I like the top 3 finishers, but that…[Read more]

  • @xtwl thats a shame dude. Please feel free to join us for the odd race if you’re free though. Thanks for offering to steward too, although now with the use of the ‘share button’, we could get a lot of the decisions out of the way whilst everyone is still in the lobby after the race. Obviously we wont always know what time races are likely to…[Read more]

  • @jamiefranklinf1 glad you like some of the ideas. They’ve worked well in the past and kept everyone interested as every race is different. Also means that even someone who joins later in the season and race in a competitive car and not be chugging it around at the back.

    Not sure how easy it will be to switch to 2014 cars whilst keeping everyone…[Read more]

  • The most emotional I’ve ever been watching an F1 race was on Sunday. The minute of silence in Bianchi’s memory before the start was heart-breaking…

    Also, it was really poignant when the drivers picked up their helmets to get ready for the start, and one remained on the ground.

  • 2013 Canadian GP – the first time Vettel, Alonso and Hamilton shared the podium. Would happen later in the year again, in Spa.
    2008 Hungarian GP – Kovalainen winning from Glock and Raikkonen.
    2014 Australian GP – Rosberg joined by local hero Ricciardo (even if he would later be disqualified) on his first race for Red Bull, and Magnussen who…[Read more]

    I think one of the contributing factors to F1 seeming more boring now is that the fans have a lot more information. Watching a boring race in the late 90s or early 00s for me was boring, but I felt that races like that happened. You never really knew what strategy everyone was on, how much fuel they had, what tyres they were on. There was perhaps…[Read more]

  • 2011 British GP – Alonso from Vettel and Webber.

  • For some reason I’ve always liked Jordan Mugen-Honda a lot, but Jordan Honda didn’t do as much for me. I also really liked the Petronas branding on the Ferrari engines in the Sauber, to the point I found it a shame Ferrari let their engines be called Ferrari for Red Bull, Spyker and Toro Rosso afterwards (I’m over it now, though). There was…[Read more]

  • Also, happy to be a full time steward for the league if you like. Got 5 years of experience in the matter and across two leagues in a lot of classes.

  • Before seats are designated, a circuit will be chosen at random in the lobby. This has been done to minimise the need to put in hours of practice before each event. Once a circuit has been raced on, it will be removed from this random vote for future races.

    I’ve been, along with some friends,running a Belgian championship for several years now on…[Read more]

  • Interesting concepts. I like them for the most part, though I do feel like it may hinder my usual style significantly, but hey, I like the challenge of it.

    May have been considered already, but I’ll throw it out there anyway. Have you thought about using 2014 cars for the sprint races? It adds a little more tactics to car choice, without the high…[Read more]

  • Williams-Renault and McLaren-Mercedes were iconic for me growing up, but times change and now it’s Williams-Mercedes! Doubt we’ll ever see McLaren-Renault though :P

    There are some interesting combinations from the past, such as the odd Cooper-Ferrari, or ‘March-Mercedes’ which was called March-Ilmor instead. One year the Sauber-Mercedes engine…[Read more]
