    Yes! Frijns 3rd. One race to go.

    Thanks @andae23 I installed the live timing app on the iphone, but that one doesn’t work. But your link does!

    Tennis on Eurosport! Instead of WSR! So all streams also only show tennis!
    And the free live timing app doesn’t show nothing – everybody desperately trying to get a view on the race. Last I know, Frijns 3, Bianchi 5!

    Love stats n facts, weekend in 10 pictures, polls … Wait! Better to highlight what I don’t read: the articles with loads of pictures, way too much (but from past experience, I know this one probably gives you massive hits), F1F live – can’t cope with everything at once.

    And in general: I’m not a fan of articles which are too long, (with too much links in them you have to follow). I don’t count the words, but I guess above 500 words is long..

    I do like round up, because sometimes you have things I didn’t read elsewhere. Fan video’s and from the stands are good as well, oh now I’m in the good things again.

    One thing though: your links for Amazon, contribute and buy a mug look like adds. And adds are things people avert their eyes from. I suggest you try it with textlinks.

    If I think of something else, I get back.

    To all the people just thinking that there are no real alternatives, I came up with one a feew days ago in a comment:

    Good for Spa! I hope they can negotiate a deal good enough so they won’t need to alternate.
    Still, in my opinion it’s simple: if some F1 teams get more money because of heritage, then the same should apply for circuits. Monaco Has it, but Canada, Spa, SuZuka, Silverstone, Monza and Brasil should also get it.
    Let Bahrain and Abu Dahbi pay. Oh and Russia and the USA too. What better advertisement for oil than F1? And I know that at least Bahrain and Abu Dahbi won’t bat an eye if their fees quadrupeled. They’re swimming in money over there. And to be part of the historic circus F1 is, comes with a price.
    Bernie’s getting old. He doesn’t ask those countries what they easily can afford…
    So, I don’t want to hear anything about contracts etcetera, it’s not too hard to get the same money but keep all real circuits.

    (I editted out three spellingmistakes but for the rest the comment is untouched)

    The comment was posted at:

    I’ve read a report online: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20120330/F1/120339980
    They’re basically saying Belgium’s holding up the deal at the moment, since the Wallonia government, who provides the taxpayers’ money for the race, wants to renegotiate with F1 themselves. One minister was quoted as saying the alternation was “not the answer”.

    @Prisonermonkeys I would happily sign for your 5 year program. Maybe someone else is at the helm of FOM at that time, so if there’s any possibilty to get such a deal, you should always go for it (as well in real life).
    (Oh and if the economy isn’t fixed enough in 5 years, I guess all of us have some other problems than F1. Like: what am I gonna eat?)

    Comments on the preview article are very narrow: MRSF’s reply on à reply is about one word width. Also at the top of the page there’s only one collumn of menu-items, as was the case before the fix, @keithcollantine

    @Keithcollantine it’s better now. I saw elements of the fix earlier this week, probably as part of testing (double menu on top of the page, good resizing of comments, better, less stretched pictures – but they disappeared again) so if something is missing, I’ll get back here.

    @keithcollantine Only in todays round up, the image is a bit stretched. Just slightly, compared to the first days. For the rest, I’m afraid I can only confirm what US_Peter says. It makes commenting a rather strange experience: yesterday when I made a comment on the Who will win the battle… article, I couldn’t get a space after estimate. When I pressed the spacebar twice, the word got shortened to estimat. – including the full stop. So that’s why I tried an enter. This worked, although the comment looks a bit odd with that enter in the middle of it (on Chrome – where I’m typing this).

    No image stretching on iOS anymore here. The overall experience is suffering a bit, with almost no rescaling and nested comments getting very small (x-dimension).

    @Keith-collantine I have the same problem as US_Peter: images appear stretched – in the article on FIA and exhaust blown diffusers. I’ve never seen this effect before, opening the site in a new ‘window’ did not help. I also am using Safari, on iPhone 4.

    If possible, can you include a comparison with other athletes, like football/soccer or running a marathon?

    Sonate L33 (or K87) by Scarlatti, played by Pogorelich. Couldn’t find a link. Only Horowitz, but that’s like an elephant, compared to Pogorelich.

    Would be a bit of a contrast that, but I think I don’t know anything more beautiful.

    The same here as Roald: iPhone 4 with Safari.
    And also, for a few days I get the normal version – which works flawless!!!
    I can scroll normal again and ignore spelling suggestions again, so gone are the days that I had to use ‘tha’ instead of ‘the’!!!

    @keithcollantine It starts okay but gets worse. I’m not sure if it gets worse over time or if number of comments adds to it. After I read your reply, I switched to full site and read tha bookreview from tha Guy from Lotus. This was okay. Then I picked round up and tried to scroll down in comments. Then everything froze.

    @keithcollantine scrolling on iPhone 4 is much better. Still not as flawless as it used to be, but at least I can use tha full site now, which was impossible before tha fix.
    – EDIT — Too soon! It gets worse again after à few minutes. For now I’ll be using mobile version again.
