    Hated the Evans segments so I’m glad he’s gone. They tried to use jokes and snipes and digs at the old Top Gear to get cheap laughs, but in my opinion he just wasn’t funny, very shouty and generally annoying. Le Blanc is nothing special, a bit bland, a bit wooden and far too American. I also don’t like the celebrity element, getting them to brag about their newest or best cars, it’s all in pretty poor taste.

    I just wish they changed the show more and didn’t faff around with the old jokes, the Stig stuff and the 20 minute celebrity stuff. The other presenters are decent enough, but if the front two can’t build a relationship together then it’s not going to work.

    I’m really hoping the new circuits are on wider roads so we can have more overtaking, and less chicanes would be nice too.

    I think round 5 will be another US track, maybe Long Beach again?

    Brands Hatch. Redone the GP circuit as it is too short for modern F1 in my opinion. Kept the paddock circuit intact, build a new Pitlane and garages though to bring it up to speed. A flowing but challenging track, with no artificial overtaking spots, but good drivers would still find a way past.

    Has there ever been a racing game that has recreated the old Monza layout? I’d love to drive around it, and obviously that’s not going to happen in real life.

    The Berlin E-Prix had a dual carriageway, the failed Qingdao Indycar circuit too, as did the second Edmonton layout

    Pits would be along Avenue Kleber, as would the start finish, despite the way I have mapped it out here

    A near 7km long epic, the pits can be built in the docks and there’s plenty of room for spectator stands

    Ferrari Scuderia
    Mercedes GP
    McLaren Honda
    Red Bull Tag Heuer
    Renaultsport F1
    Haas F1
    Manor Mercedes
    Williams Ford Racing (US backing)
    BMW Sauber Motorsport (loved this partnership)
    Aston Martin Racing (used to be Force India)
    Alfa Romeo Scuderia (used to be Toro Rosso)
    Team VW (either Lamborghini or Porsche)
    Koenigsegg F1

    26 cars, on 35 tracks
    Melbourne, Adelaide, Suzuka, Sepang, Singapore, Yeongnam, Shanghai, Buddh, Dubai Autodrome, Sakhir, Sochi, Istanbul, Kyalami, Hungaroring, Red Bull Ring, Hockenheim, Nurburgring, Imola, Monza, Spa, Zandvoort, Le Mans, Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Catalunya, Monaco, Portimao, Sao Paulo, Argentina, Mexico, Montreal, Austin, NY/NJ, Long Beach, Indianapolis. That would be perfection in my eyes!
    Tracks would double up so Brands Hatch and Silverstone go back to back, as would Imola and Monza, Melbourne and Adelaide, Suzuka and Yeongnam, Shanghai and Buddh, Sakhir and Dubai, Singapore and Sepang, Istanbul and Sochi, Hungaroring and Red Bull Ring, Nurburgring and Hockenheim, Le Mans and Monaco, Spa and Zandvoort, Catalunya and Portimao, Argentina and Sao Paulo, Indy and Long Beach, Austin and Mexico, Montreal and NY/NJ. Kyalami is very far from everything so they’d probably have to go alone.

    Trust me, it’ll work!

    Grosjean, Bottas or Hulkenberg.

    Of course it should have been Bianchi (RIP) Who would most probably have been a Sauber driver for the past season and a half

    Didn’t one force India take out the other in Korea a few years ago?

    Grosjean if he takes the Ferrari seat, Bottas if Williams get a decent upgrade for Canada and get a lucky break or two, Sainz if he gets into Red Bull or another top team (doubtful) or Wehrlein if he displaces one of the Merc drivers

    Awesome, thanks

    I am going on holiday for a few days, to Cologne, so I want you guys to build a street circuit in this area.

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/m/?r=6829663&rf=1

    4.5-7km and needs to be mostly roads, one or two minor built sections are ok, but no purpose built circuits guys. You have until midnight on Saturday night (that’s when I’m back)

    Some lovely, challenging test tracks here, each with their own unique qualities, and there are reasons to give each of you top spot, but I am going to give this one to Browny, his track just edged it for me, congratulations!
