I wouldn’t mind the boost if everyone had it, but the way it is implemented is extremely unfair on the drivers who will rarely get it, if at all. Entertainment should not compromise fair competition, even if the 2.5 seconds of boost turns out to be negligible.19th June 2014, 11:03 at 11:03 am #263399

Wow, what a first class idiot. I dread to think about how he drives on public roads, he clearly no regard for the safety of others, including those close to him.17th June 2014, 19:12 at 7:12 pm #263223

@kingshark Russia are playing South Korea, not North Korea. :)16th June 2014, 12:42 at 12:42 pm #263158
Yesterday Honduras were disgraceful. People say Chelsea play anti-football, but I think those people will be revising their definitions of anti-football after yesterdays France-Honudras game.16th June 2014, 11:57 at 11:57 am #263156

@bradley13 I think he was asking about the extra time after the original 90 minutes when there’s a draw.
@lite992 During the group stage of this World Cup there is no extra time as draws are allowed, in this case both teams will receive one point.
When the tournament reaches the knockout stages, any game which is level after 90 minutes will go to extra time. Extra time consists of two 15 minutes halves. Unlike hockey where it is first team to score wins the game, in football the teams play the full 30 minutes of extra time, regardless of whether there are goals.
If the score is still level after extra time, the teams go to a penalty shootout.15th June 2014, 15:25 at 3:25 pm #263121

I’d also like to say that Fred’s dive last night was disgraceful. Everyone is having a go at the ref, but Fred is one who should be vilified.5th June 2014, 10:08 at 10:08 am #262321
I think Argentina will win it and because of that I will support them, along with Chile, Japan and Italy as there are certain things about them that appeal to me.
Although I’m English, I don’t support teams based on my geographical or cultural ties to them – nothing about the England team appeals to me so I don’t feel I have any reason to support them. I don’t see England getting out of the group anyway, they have not looked promising in their friendlies. Italy haven’t either, but their squad is generally stronger than England’s.
@bradley13 I think that’s quite an optimistic prediction for the Netherlands to reach the semi-finals, their midfield looks below-average and their defence looks weak.10th May 2014, 12:32 at 12:32 pm #259533

I wrote off McLaren very early into the 2013 season. I also don’t see Ferrari winning anything this year.1st March 2014, 10:13 at 10:13 am #250336
It’s okay, I was a bit disappointed considering it was probably my only chance this season to make the podium (I don’t expect to be in contention for Brazil), but whatever.28th February 2014, 22:51 at 10:51 pm #250315
@commonmonsoon race review popped up in my emails and seeing how he can’t post it here, I’d thought I’d do it for him:
“Well, I’m going to attempt to break down one of the craziest races I’ve ever been involved in.
I put in a poor qualifying lap but followed it up with a mediocre one that was enough for provisional pole, although I was unhappy with the fact I cut the corner at Ascari. I went for a final run in an attempt to better my time with a ”clean” lap but ran into @slr into the first Lesmo.
Made my customary poor start from pole and lost out to @sato113 into turn 1, but he got a poor exit out of turn 2 and I went around the outside of him through Curva Grande. As I pulled ahead, I started to feel the back end getting loose and braced myself for the inevitable and we lagged into each other. We both went into the gravel and hit the wall at ridiculously high speed which put us at the back.
I then set about tentatively fighting my way from last to 4th before pitting at the end of lap 6 for primes. I rejoined behind @ed24f1 and quickly passed him as he was on pretty worn tyres, but unfortunately he accidentally spun me out at the della Roggia which meant I lost another large portion of time. I fought my way back through the field once more until I encountered @jamiefranklinf1 down the pit straight but he pushed me onto the grass as I pulled alongside across the finish line (I’m assuming there was lag and he didn’t know I was there) and as I panicked and rejoined the track we collided and I ended up arriving at turn 1 in reverse at 300km/h. Yet more time and positions lost!
Passed @bradley13 again and then dispatched a vomiting Jamie as the rain began to fall and we all pitted together for inters on lap 17. After our stops, I managed to drop the Lotus pair and catch up to slr in 2nd but he pitted for full wet tyres as I was lining up an overtake. I suddenly realised the track was too wet for inters which meant my in lap was pretty scary. I was hoping everyone hadn’t undercut me by getting onto the full wets earlier, but I was struggling to wrestle the car around the track.
I exited the pits just ahead of slr and Bradley who were battling but outbraked myself into turn 1 and cut the corner. As I felt I’d gained an advantage, I let slr through before the della Roggia but Bradley outbraked himself and took us both out. I caught them again and passed Bradley through the Parabolica but knew he’d likely retake the position as he’d be in my slipstream. I used all my KERS, slr’s slipstream and then some of my newly recharged KERS to break Bradley’s tow which meant I reached top speed and drew level with slr into the braking zone for turn 1. In the spray and excitement, I missed my braking point, locked up and cut across his front wing. As I rejoined the track, I couldn’t see where he was and in my hesitation to get going, I allowed Bradley through once more whilst leaving slr behind which I’m sincerely sorry for! I probably should have stopped but I was very frustrated as I felt I’d already lost way too much time through accidents I didn’t feel I played any part in.”
