    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/m/?r=6705251&rf=1 the London QEOP F1 Circuit, minutes from both my house and my place of work, a few roads would need widening or resurfacing but the infrastructure and the space for multiple grandstands would be there

    But it looks absolutely nothing like the Marlboro logo in any way! And Marlboro can use Ferrari on their adverts as much as they like provided Ferrari say it’s OK, there’s no ban on formula 1 appearing in tobacco adverts, just a ban on tobacco sponsors and adverts in formula 1. I just think people are trying to dig Ferrari out yet again for something they have clearly distanced themselves from in recent years.

    If you look hard enough for something, you’ll see anything you want to see. A black panel on a red car, swooshing the opposite way to a red panel on a white car, and people call it subliminal advertising! What about the panel on this
    MR01
    That’s closer to the Marlboro McLaren, does that scream subliminal advertising to you?

    I find the Nurburgring very boring, perhaps it’s over exposure to it on various racing games, but the first sector is awful and after that I don’t see anything interesting.

    I would choose Hockenheim simply because there is opportunity to overtake in many places, and the Parabolika and Stadium sections are pretty unique. I also like the Mercedes Benz section

    Will never happen, but I’d like to see one off liveries on the Ferrari cars, with the entire car painted black with the sponsors in plain white, and a big #JB17 on every car.

    Or, every car is numbered “17” for the Hungarian Grand Prix

    Though it was quite brief, the mix of sky blue and yellow on the Renaults was one of my favourites. Red Ferraris with black wings, and the beautiful orange Arrows. My absolute favourite though was the Virgin VR01 livery

    That wasn’t a spin, it was Kimi drifting his Ferrari for the fans

    Montlhery, 6.5 km

    Pitlane along outer side of main straight with the chicane as the entrance and the exit running along the edge of the straight, so entrance like Montreal and the exit like Donington of that makes sense.

    The first sector consists of a 900m blast to the first corner, one of the longest in the modern era, leading into a double apex left that almost directly flows into a sweeping 90 degrees right. A relatively short straight the follows, before drivers negotiate a tight chicane before crossing the old oval.

    The second sector starts with the forest lined track flying along to a hairpin left, a major overtaking spot if you nail the chicane. Another sweeping left hander follows soon after, before a long back straight, that takes us into a series of fast but tightening corners, similar to COTA and Silverstone but also paying homage to the original circuit.

    The track then falls away into a valley, into sector 3 which is directly lifted from the old circuit, just brought eastwards by a kilometre or so. A right left hander into a mini straight then another hairpin, followed by a flat out right, and a final corner chicane to set up the long home straight and on to another lap.

    My remake of one of the many testing tracks in Germany, this one belongs to Porsche.

    Run off will be tight in places, but I think it would be a great challenge

    They need to use a lighter purple to differentiate Red Bull from Toro Rosso on the colour coding, they need to use the numbers more, have the box the laptime is written in change colour instead of the text, and lastly they need to bring back the pits / chequered flags on qualifying, as you couldn’t tell who still had a lap to complete after the time was up
