Re: Le Mans 2018

My bet is that Alonso will win - well he is in the joint best car by a mile - and will then give up F1 for Indycar and a punt at the 500. He would probably do better at Indianapolis with a car, like all the other competitors. Being powered by a pole would probably be more reliable than the Honda en...

F1 theme music

What are people making of this year's official F1 theme? When I first heard it I was a bit underwhelmed, but a few races in and it really started to feel right for F1. It is night and day better than the previous two stings that they would use to launch the official broadcasts. Using it again at the...

Re: Welcome back babblers, its Tuesday

Just saying hello again... we moved house last month, which was a giggle a minute. The legals took forever and we had more than a few days of thinking it would all fall apart - that was with a chain of just three properties. It takes an inordinate number of hours to pack up your home and twice as lo...

Re: F1 Jokes

yeah, short maybe...but it's going to be his year... :lol: :lol: Woah, that takes me back. The cover photo for his book with the helmet on the floor seems to represent something, but I can't quite decide what. It is something like a bar chart between what DC has achieved as a man, versus what he ac...

Re: How would you design the "Formula" of F1? (regulations)

Making the rules commercially and/or technically viable is another thing altogether for this thread. I suppose one of the upsides of the early 90s cars was that they still could find a reasonable tow when following another car. Now we only hear about cars losing grip. Perhaps F1 should look at the n...

Mind you, I have recently developed a taste for peanut butter and nutella on toast.

Re: Halo / Flip-flop

I don't agree with the deflection comments. Overall, it increases protection against small objects. The objective is to protect the head; the hypothetical deflected object is likely to be a reduced energy impact so might end a career rather than a life. Henry Surtees' and Justin Wilson's accidents w...

Re: Adios marbles

I had to Google the name...

Experiment isn't the word so much as accident. I think it would have been less of a stretch than the first person that tried Marmite?

Re: How would you design the "Formula" of F1? (regulations)

I'd also add to my rules that the current communications rules stay in place, driver coaching was a joke :rolleyes: Did they not get opened back up again? I would like it so only race control could speak to drivers during the race. The teams then design cars that can be driven without needing to na...

Re: 2018 F1 Launch Dates

As for the Halo: https://ak0.scstatic.net/1/cdn2-cont8.sweetcouch.com/141217286268564949-hawalker-men-waka-orange-rubber-flipflop.jpg Is that the beachwear brand that McLaren actually is carrying sponsorship for on the halo itself this weekend? I don't mind the halo at all, but they do look like fl...
